It is a matter of course for us to respect your personality rights. This also applies to the handling of person-al data during your visit and use of this website. Therefore, we act in accordance with the data protection laws of the Federal Republic of Germany and the data protection regulations of the European Union. In the following, you will learn how we deal with your personal data and, in particular, which data we collect, process and use for what purposes.
- Scope of this Data Protection Policy
This Data Protection Policy applies to the use of the websites offered by KEGON AG, which you can reach at www.kegon.de (hereinafter referred to as "KEGON Websites"). This Data Protection Policy is not applicable to other websites of KEGON AG or to the websites of other service provid-ers, to which the KEGON Websites refer by means of a link.
- Personal Data
Personal data are any information concerning the personal or material circumstances of an identified or identifiable natural person. The basic personal date is your name. However, your gender, your date of birth, your address, your occupation, your e-mail address and your IP address are personal data as well provided that these data are associated with your name or we can assign them with the means at our disposal. On the other hand, non-personal data are those with which the determination of your actual identity is impossible or at least a considerable effort is required. This includes, for example, the aforementioned information if we receive it anonymously or under a pseudonym and, therefore, cannot assign them to any natural person.
- Principle of Anonymity
When using the KEGON Websites, you remain anonymous, as long as you do not voluntarily provide us with personal data, by using our contact form, commenting on blog entries or placing an order (e. g., for the booking of a training event).
- Collection, Processing and Use of Personal Data
4.1 We automatically collect data on which IP address is assigned to your computer, which browser and which operating system you use, and which pages of the KEGON Websites you are viewing. This data is stored on our web server only until you leave the KEGON Websites again. An additional storage in log files does not take place.
4.2 In all other respects, we collect, process or use personal data from you only if you voluntarily make this available to us of your own accord and it is legally permitted or you have given your consent. We use the personal data provided by you exclusively to the purposes stated in this Data Protection Policy or explicitly agreed upon with you.
4.3 There is no transfer, sale or any other transmission of your personal data to third parties. This shall not apply if a transfer, sale or any other transmission is necessary for the execution of the communi-cated or agreed upon purposes (e. g., transfer of event participants’ data to print shops, hotels or logistic companies) and is permitted without consent under applicable data protection law or if you have expressly consented. For each event that KEGON performs, KEGON will create a participant list, in which the first name, last name, company and location of the registered participants will be printed. The participant list is made available to all participants of the event as part of the event documentation. Only participants, who give a clear affirmative consent, will be included in the list.
5.1 For placing an order on the KEGON Website, we need your first name, your last name, the company, the address, the billing address, if deviating, and the VAT-ID of the company for which you will place the order as well as your e-mail address. If you wish to book an event, we will also collect the name and e-mail address of the participants. When placing an order, your IP address as well as the date and time of the order will be stored in addition, in order to be able to provide evidence in case of misuse of the name or used e-mail address.
5.2 In order to process orders and payments for training events we use XING events. In addition to the data mentioned in section 5.1, we also receive invoice information from XING
5.3 We collect, process and use the data listed in section 5.1 and 5.2 to enable the processing and execution of your order.
5.4 You can revoke your consent at any time according to the statutory provisions (for contact see sec-tion 14). We will continue to store your data thereafter as long as and to the extent that we are obliged to do so under the statutory duties to preserve records or if we still need your data to carry out or process an existing contractual relationship with you. Your data will be blocked for other purposes during this period.
5.5 When booking training events, the XING SE’s Data Processing Policy also applies.
6.1 You can also actively participate in the KEGON community through our blog by commenting on blog entries. In each case before activating the comment function on the blog, we ask your name and your e-mail address as required information. When commenting on the blog, your name, your e-mail address, your IP address as well as the date and time of the comment will be stored, in order to be able to provide evidence in case of misuse of the name or used e-mail address.
6.2 We collect, process and use your name and email address to provide you with the comment function on the blog. Without your consent, your name and your e-mail address you specify to use the comment function on the blog will not be used for any other purposes and it will not be disclosed to any third party.
6.3 We will store all comments in the blog for an unlimited period of time. We process and use your comments to make them accessible to all users of the KEGON Websites. All comments are thus freely and publicly accessible on the Internet.
6.4 Provided that you have agreed to the transfer of your data to us as described above, you have made the following consent: "Yes, I would like to sign up with the KEGON AG for the commentary function of the blog and, with respect thereto, I agree with the Data Protection Policy. I can at any time revoke this consent with effect for the future."
6.5 You can revoke your consent at any time according to the statutory provisions (for contact see section 14). We will continue to store your data thereafter as long as and to the extent that we are obliged to do so under the statutory duties to preserve records. Your data will be blocked for other purposes during this period. If you make use of your right of revocation, your comments on the blog remain unaffected; they will still be stored and made publicly accessible on the Internet.
