3. General and mandatory information 

Data protection
The website operator takes the protection of your personal data very seriously. We will treat your personal data confidentially in accordance with the applicable data protection regulations and this privacy statement. 
Various forms of personal data will be collected when you use this website. The term “personal data” is used below to refer to any data with which you can be personally identified. The aim of this privacy statement is to identify the data we collect, to explain why we use it and to describe how and for what purposes we process data. 
Please note that data transferred via the Internet (e.g. email communication) may be affected by security issues; therefore, data cannot be completely protected against third-party access. 

Information on the controller
The party responsible for data processing (“controller”) on this website is: 
KAP Precision Components GmbH
Edelzeller Straße 44
36043 Fulda
Germany
The “controller” is the natural or legal person who, alone or jointly with others, determines the purposes and means of the processing of personal data (e.g. names, email addresses). 

Right to revoke your consent to data processing
Many data processing operations are only possible with your express consent. You may revoke your consent at any time by notifying us informally via email. This will have no bearing on the legality of any data processing performed before the withdrawal of your consent. 

Right to lodge a complaint with the competent supervisory authority
In the event of violations of the GDPR, data subjects have the right to lodge a complaint with a data protection supervisory authority, particularly in the Member State of their habitual place of residence / work or the location of the alleged breach. Even after lodging a complaint, data subjects reserve the right to seek other forms of administrative or judicial remedy. 

Right to data portability
If we are processing your data by automated means on the basis of your consent or for the performance of a contract, you may ask for this data to be returned to you or transferred to a third party in a commonly used, machine-readable format. If you ask for your data to be transferred directly to another controller, we will only be able to honour your request if it is technically feasible. 

SSL and TLS encryption
This site uses SSL and TLS encryption to ensure security and protect the transmission of sensitive data, such as any orders or enquiries that you send to the website operator. You can tell whether an encrypted connection has been established, as your browser’s address bar will have changed from “http://” to “https://” and a padlock symbol will be displayed in your browser bar. 
If SSL or TLS encryption is enabled, third parties will not be able to intercept any data you send us. 

Access, erasure and rectification
In accordance with the applicable legal provisions, you always have the right to obtain free information on your stored personal data, as well as its source, recipients and the purpose of processing; if applicable, you may also request the rectification or erasure of your data. If you have any questions about the information provided on this page or any other aspects of personal data, please contact us by referring to the details indicated in our legal notice. 

Right to the restriction of processing
You may ask us to restrict the processing of your personal data at any time by referring to the contact details indicated in our legal notice. You may request the restriction of processing in the following cases: 
If you dispute the accuracy of the personal data we hold on you, it will usually take some time for us to process your request. While we check the accuracy of your personal data, you may request the restriction of processing.
If the processing of your personal data is or has been unlawful, you may opt against the erasure of your data and request the restriction of processing instead. 
If we no longer require your personal data but you need it for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims, you may opt against the erasure of your data and request the restriction of processing instead.
If you have objected to data processing in accordance with Art. 21 (1) GDPR, a balance must be struck between your legitimate interests and ours. If it is not yet clear whose interests prevail, you may request the restriction of the processing of your personal data. 
If the processing of your personal data has been restricted, it may only be processed (with the exception of storage) with your consent, or for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims, or for the protection of the rights of another natural or legal person, or for reasons of an important public interest of the Union or a Member State.

When you visit our website, some third-party cookies may also be saved on your device. These enable the use of certain third-party services (e.g. payment service cookies). 
Cookies have various functions. Numerous cookies are technically necessary, as certain functions of our website would not work without them (e.g. the shopping cart function or the presentation of videos). Other cookies are used to evaluate user behaviour or display advertising. 
If cookies are required to provide electronic communication (necessary cookies), enable certain desirable features (functional cookies, e.g. for the shopping cart function) or optimise the website (e.g. cookies used to measure the web audience), they will be saved on your device on the basis of point (f) of Art. 6 (1) GDPR, unless another legal basis is indicated. The website operator has a legitimate interest in saving cookies to ensure the technically faultless and optimised provision of its services. If you are asked to consent to the use of cookies, they will be saved exclusively on the basis of your consent (point (a) of Art. 6 (1) GDPR); you may revoke your consent at any time. 
You may configure your browser to notify you about the use of cookies and only allow cookies in specific cases, reject cookies in certain cases or generally, and enable the automatic deletion of cookies when you close your browser. Disabling cookies may restrict the functionality of this website. 
If cookies are used by third-party companies or for analytical purposes, we will inform you about this separately in this privacy statement and, if necessary, ask for your consent.

Your data will not be merged with other data sources. 
This data will be collected on the basis of point (f) of Art. 6 (1) GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in the technically faultless presentation and optimisation of its website, and the server log files must be compiled for this purpose.

This data will be processed on the basis of point (b) of Art. 6 (1) GDPR, provided your enquiry concerns the performance of a contract or is necessary for pre-contractual measures. In all other cases, the processing will be based on our legitimate interest in the effective handling of any enquiries addressed to us (point (f) of Art. 6 (1) GDPR) or on your consent (point (a) of Art. 6 (1) GDPR) if you are asked to give this. 
We will retain your data entered in the contact form until you request its deletion, until you withdraw your consent to its storage, or until the purpose for which your data was collected no longer applies (e.g. once your enquiry has been fully processed). We reserve the right to comply with mandatory legal provisions, particularly retention periods. 

Enquiries by email, phone or fax
If you contact us by email, phone or fax, we will save and process your enquiry, including any personal data contained therein (e.g. name), to deal with your request. We will not share this data without your consent.
