Data collection and processing in connection with internet access
Each time a user accesses one of the pages on our website, access data pertaining to this process are stored temporarily in a log file on our server.
The following data are collected and stored until they are automatically deleted:
• Requesting IP address
• Date and time of access
• Name and URL of the accessed file
• Volume of data transmitted
• Notification of successful file access
• Web browser and operating system used
• Name of requesting domain
• Name of your internet access provider
This data is processed so that you can access the website (connection establishment), for system security, for the technical administration of the network infrastructure and to optimise the website. The IP address is only evaluated if the Kamps GmbH network infrastructure is breached or for other data security reasons.
Use and disclosure of personal details
Other than in the aforementioned cases, personal data is only processed in connection with orders that you have placed with us or if you have given us your explicit consent. Your personal data will only be used for the aforementioned purposes and in the scope necessary for these purposes. The personal data which you provide to us on one of our web pages (e.g. your name and address or e-mail address) will only be used for correspondence with you and only processed for the specific purpose for which it was provided (e.g. for registration to use a closed user section, for verifying the login data, for participation in a competition or for dispatch of requested information material). We will also use these data to make occasional offers to you, to inform you about new products and about services or special promotions which may interest you. Naturally, we will request your prior consent as required by law. You will be notified of your statutory right to object to receiving advertising. Please contact us with your objection at the address or e-mail provided below.
Personal data transfers to government agencies and public authorities are only made in compliance with mandatory legal requirements or if such transfers are necessary in order to take legal action or for prosecution purposes in the event of unauthorised breaches of our network infrastructure.
Disclaimer and hyperlinks to third party websites
Kamps GmbH makes every effort to ensure that the content of this website is up to date and accurate. However, despite taking meticulous care, we assume no responsibility for the relevance, correctness and completeness of the information provided. Liability claims against Kamps GmbH in connection with the direct or indirect use of the website are excluded unless Kamps GmbH has acted with culpable intent or gross negligence. Kamps GmbH reserves the right, without the need to give prior notice, to modify or supplement information and components in this website.
Any links to external websites which are provided have been meticulously selected and checked. Kamps GmbH does not, however, have any influence over future modifications to linked websites. It therefore assumes no liability whatsoever for the content of external websites of third party providers. The responsible party and the party to contact in all cases of breaches of law is the provider of the linked website. If Kamps GmbH subsequently gains awareness of any illegal content on a linked website, it will remove the link in question.
External websites may only program a link to our website after obtaining the express prior written consent of Kamps GmbH.
Social networks, e.g. Facebook
One of the features of our website is that it uses social plugins, particularly plugins of the social network Facebook, which are operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA (“Facebook”). The plugins can be identified by the Facebook logo and “like“ button. Click here for a list of Facebook social plugins and their icons.
When you visit a page on our website which has one of these plugins, your browser connects to the Facebook servers. The plugin content is transferred from Facebook directly to your browser, which then integrates it in the website. Integration of the plug-in provides Facebook with the information that you have accessed the corresponding page of our website.
The URL of the website you have visited (and your IP address) is transferred to and stored on a Facebook server in the USA. Facebook isn’t generally able to identify your in person on the basis of the typically dynamic IP address assigned by the access provider when you are surfing. According to Facebook information, the data are not further processed or passed on to third parties and then anonymised after three months so that no further personal connection is possible. This does not apply if you are logged onto Facebook when you access our website. In this case, Facebook can assign the website access to your Facebook account.
If you interact with the plugins, for instance by clicking the ‘like‘ button or posting a comment, this information will be transferred by your browser directly to Facebook and stored there so that it can be shared with your friends. The same thing happens if you use the 'tell a friend’ or 'share' functions on some of our web pages.
If you don’t want Facebook to assign your visit to our website to your Facebook account, you have to logout from Facebook before accessing our website.For further information about Facebook plugins click here.
