Data protection is an extremely important topic for Kulzer. We thus collect, process and use your personal data solely in accordance with legal provisions while respecting the appropriate technical and organisational data security measures.
What is personal data?
Personal data refers to details of personal or material circumstances of a particular or identifiable natural person. These include for example your civil name, your mailing address, your telephone number or your date of birth.
Anonymous data collection and processing
Unless represented otherwise in the following sections, no personal data is collected, processed or used when using our websites in general. We do however learn about the use of certain Google Analytics technical information by means of the data conveyed from your browser such as for example, the browser type/version, the operating system used, and visits to our websites including the time spent on the site and the website visited prior. We evaluate this information purely for statistical purposes.
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”, text files that are stored on your computer and that facilitate analysis of your use of the website. As a rule, the information concerning your use of this website produced by the cookie is transmitted to and stored on a Google server in the USA. However, as a result of IP anonymization on this website, your IP address is shortened by Google within Member States of the European Union or in other Contracting States to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. The complete IP address shall only be communicated to a Google Server in the USA and shortened in exceptional cases.
Google will use this information on behalf of the operator of this website to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on the website activities and for enhancing the use of the website and the use of the services related to internet use for the website operator. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of the Google Analytics process will not be merged with other Google data.
You can prevent cookies from being stored by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser. However, please note that if you do so, you may not be able to use all the functions of this website. You may also prevent Google from processing this data generated by the cookie and on your usage of the website (incl. your IP address) by downloading and installing the browser plugin through the following Link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en
We refer in particular to the fact that Google Analytics extended the“gat._anonymizeIp();” code in order to provide for the anonymised collection of IP addresses, or so-called “IP-Masking”.

Use of social media plugins and services by third party providers
The following social media plugins are currently used on this website: Facebook, Google+. We use the so-called 2-click solution for them. First, when you visit our site, in principle, basically no personal data is transmitted to the providers of the plugins. You recognise the plugin provider by the marking on the shaded boxes by using the first letter. Data that may be personally correlated is only transmitted when you click on one of the plugins. By activating the plugins, data is automatically transmitted to the relevant plugin provider (by US providers in the USA) and stored. We have no influence on the data collected or data processing operations, nor do we know the full scope of the data collection, its purpose or time limits for storage. If the plugin provider collects data by using cookies, you can take the precaution of deleting all cookies by clicking on the shaded boxes in the security settings on your browser.
When you activate a plugin with the 2-click solution, the plugin provider receives the information that you have called up the corresponding page of our online offer. We do not know what additional data is collected from the plugin provider. According to the plugin provider in Germany, in the case of Facebook, only an anonymized IP is collected.
Additional videos are found on the website of third party provider Youtube stored on http://www.YouTube.com that can be played directly from our website. They are all linked in “extended data protection mode”, i.e. no data concerning you as a YouTube user is transmitted when you do not play the videos. Data is only transferred when you play the videos.
Data is collected by plugins or third party suppliers regardless of whether or not you have an account and/or are logged in. If you are logged in, this data is directly related to your account. When you activate the button using the 2-click solution and, for example, link to the page, the plugin provider also stores this information in your user account and publicly discloses this to your contact. Data collection begins for third party provider Youtube when you play the video. If you do not want your profile to be associated with the plugin or third party supplier, you must log out prior to activating the button.
The plugin provider stores this data as a user profile and generally uses it for advertising purposes, market research and/or the needs-based design of its website. Such an evaluation is conducted in particular (also for users that are not logged in) for displaying appropriate publicity and informing other social network users of your activities on our website. You have a right to object to the creation of this user profile, which you may exercise with regard to the plugin provider. Further information on the purpose and scope of the data collection and its processing by the plugin provider can be obtained in the following data privacy statements disclosed by the providers. They also contain information on your rights and settings options for protecting your privacy:
We also collect personal data when you notify us, for example when you contact us. We use and store this data exclusively for responding to your requests, for example for forwarding to the internal department and communicating with you.

Since this concerns data concerning communications channels such as e-mail addresses or telephone numbers, you further agree that we may also contact you if required over these communications channels to respond to your requests.
Following final processing of your request, your data will be deleted if you so desire and if no statutory storage obligations prevent such deletion. Please contact our Data Protection Officer, whose contact details are indicated below.
