a. Web server logs including the IP address
No processing of personal data is required for most of our services. This means you can visit our website without informing us who you are.
We only collect and process access data which your internet browser automatically sends to us for technical reasons in order to make the website available. Depending on the type of access log used, the log data set contains general information with the following content: your session data (date and time of request, usage behavior, duration of visit, which links were clicked on, the time zone difference to Greenwich Mean Time (GMT), the amount of data transmitted etc.), the website you were previously on, your IP address, your browser version, your operating system, the domain name and the address of your internet provider (e.g. AOL) and your website-specific settings. If our website cookies are used, the web server also stores this information. This also applies if you visit our website using a mobile device, for example, with a mobile phone browser.
This data does not generally enable you to be traced directly and is used to improve our website. The legal basis for the processing of your personal data is a legitimate interest in accordance with art. 6 para. 1 let. f GDPR. We have a legitimate interest in providing you with a website optimized for your browser and enabling communication between our server and your device.
In the event of misuse of the system, we can also process and use the information logged by the web server in cooperation with your internet provider and/or local authorities to determine who is responsible for such misuse. The legal basis for this is also a legitimate interest, art. 6 para. 1 let. f GDPR. Our legitimate interest lies in the protection of the integrity of our system and our users.

As well as you, authorized HR employees at our company and the line manager responsible for the vacancy also have access to your data. Both the HR employees and the managers responsible may belong to other companies in the KPS AG Group which means we may pass on your data within KPS AG.

Orders and information material
When ordering information material via the website (e.g. brochures or studies), your name and e-mail address are required.
We process and store the personal data provided with the order to provide you with the ordered information material. The legal basis for the processing of your personal data is the fulfillment of a contract or the implementation of pre-contractual measures, Article 6, Section 1(b) GDPR.
If you have also subscribed to updates on the dowonlad and its specific topics, you can unsubscribe at any time, e.g. by replying to one of our e-mails.
We also record when and how often you clicked on the link to the information material in order to find out whether and to what extent the information material is actually requested. In this way, we want to continuously improve our offer and align it with the wishes of interested parties, which is a legitimate interest. The legal basis is Article 6, Section 1(f) GDPR.
