Personal Data

Personal data is individual details about the personal or factual circumstances of a specific or identifiable natural person. For example, your name, address, account and passport information, phone number, license plate number, email address and IP number all constitute personal information. On the contrary, non-personal data is data that makes it impossible to determine your true identity. This includes, for example, information about your gender, which browser you use or which car brand you prefer.

Anonymity

When using the H. Kemper GmbH & Co. KG Nortrup websites, you remain anonymous as long as you do not voluntarily provide us with any personal data. The only exception to this rule is the temporary automatic collection and storage of your IP number. For further details, please see below.

Automatic collection, processing and use of personal data

Whenever you visit H. Kemper GmbH & Co. KG Nortrup websites, we automatically collect information about the IP number that is assigned to your computer, which browser and operating system you use and which websites you have viewed. The storage of this data occurs using log files on the web server. Only the IP number represents a piece of personal data. To protect against misuse of our computer systems, storage of the IP number of every visitor to our websites for a temporary period is necessary. Where we also use log files for the creation of user profiles, be it for the purpose of advertising, market research or the needs-based design of our websites, all IP numbers are anonymised in advance. Otherwise, IP numbers are deleted from the log files. As a result, you remain anonymous under all circumstances, even when your IP number is automatically collected and temporarily stored.

Additional collection, processing or use of personal data

We also collect, process or use personal data only if you voluntarily provide us with such information and if this is permitted by law or if you have consented to it. Data would be transferred to third parties without your consent only if we are legally obliged to do so.

The purpose of the collection, processing or use of personal data

We use the personal data provided by you solely for the purpose of communication or otherwise agreed upon intentions.

Use of personal data for the purpose of advertising or market research.

To maintain customer relations with you, we have an occasional interest in using your personal data for advertising, market research or other purposes. Under such circumstances, we will always inform you in advance and ask for your express consent.

The disclosure, sale or transfer of personal data to third parties

Any disclosure, sale or transfer of your personal data to third parties will only take place where it is necessary for the processing of the communicated or agreed purpose, or if you have provided your express consent.

Withdrawal of consent

At any time, you have the opportunity to object to the agreed intended future usage of your personal data. Please contact the address below.

Use of cookies

On the H. Kemper GmbH & Co. KG Nortrup websites, we usually use so-called session cookies, which store technical session control data in your browser's memory. This data is not personal and will be deleted at the latest when you close your browser. As part of our eCard service, we store a permanent cookie on the computer of the eCard recipient as soon as it detects the eCard addressed to them on our server. This cookie stores the name and email address of the eCard sender. However, the lifetime of the cookie is only 30 minutes and is intended to make it easier for the recipient of the eCard to create a reply to the email sender.

Deactivating cookies

If you do not want cookies to be stored on your computer, you can protect yourself against them and also view the cookies' contents. To this end, current browsers provide you with various functions that you can use; you can find out more by accessing the Help section of your browser. For example, you can set your internet browser to automatically block all cookies or warn you before a cookie is saved. However, we point out that this may result in functional limitations when using H. Kemper GmbH & Co. KG Nortrup websites and the websites of other service providers.

Otherwise, we only use cookies for the purpose of providing information about the available uses of our website, as well as for statistical purposes.

Security measures

H. Kemper GmbH & Co. KG Nortrup websites take technical and organisational security measures in order to protect your personal data from loss and misuse. This means your data is saved in a secure operating environment that is inaccessible to the public. In certain cases, your personal information will be encrypted during transmission using Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology. This means that any communication between your computer and the servers of H. Kemper GmbH & Co. KG Nortrup websites is carried out using a recognised encryption process, which, when in its current version (currently SSL Version 3, 128 bit), is considered secure. If your browser supports SSL, the transfer of personal data is protected by this feature. In this case, most browsers will indicate whether the security protocol is supported by a small dialogue box or icon. Further information can be found by accessing the Help section of your browser. We point out that if you wish to contact H. Kemper GmbH & Co. KG Nortrup websites by email, confidentiality of the transmitted information is not guaranteed. The content of such emails can - similar to postcards - be viewed by third parties. We therefore recommend that you send us confidential information by post only.

Right to information

Upon request, we will gladly inform you if we are storing any personal data about you and, if so, which. You have the right to receive information about the personal data stored about you at any time, including the origin and recipient of your data and the purpose of the data's processing. To make such a request, please contact the address below.

Modification and deletion of personal data

If you would like to have your personal data changed or deleted, please contact the address below. As a matter of principle, we will delete any personal data we have about you as soon as the purpose for which we originally stored your data has been achieved. However, we would like to point out that we may not be able to delete your data due to statutory retention or accounting obligations. In such cases, you are entitled to block the data.

Modification of this privacy policy

The rapid technological development of the internet and changes to data protection laws require us to occasionally adapt our privacy policy to new requirements. Please take note of the current privacy policy. This privacy policy is valid as of 05/01/2011.
