For us, data is the basis for providing you with an outstanding service. But our most important asset is your trust as a customer. Protecting customer data and only using it in a way that customers have come to expect from us is extremely important to us. That is why it goes without saying that complying with the terms of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is at the core of our business. It is also important to us that you know when and how we use your information and how it is stored.
IP addresses are required for troubleshooting, website administration and demographic information. When you visit our site we can only see the domain name of your provider, not your email address.
The only way we see your email address is if you give it to us directly by filling out a form or sending us an email.
Collecting and processing non-personal data:
Every time a user accesses our website, in other words every time a user calls up or attempts to call up a file on this server, data is stored to a logfile. This data is not personal and we cannot tell which user called up which data. We also make no attempt to collect this information.
Collecting general data and information
When you visit our website, general data is collected and is stored in logfiles on the provider's server. The following data is automatically collected:
Browser type and browser version
Operating system used
Host name of the accessing computer
Time of server request
IP address (anonymised)
This data is not combined with other data sources to create a profile. No conclusions are drawn about the data subject. The information is used solely for security purposes, such as for tracking unauthorised access, for statistical analysis of the frequency with which our website is visited and to ensure that our website functions correctly. We do not pass on data to third countries.
You alone decide whether or not to provide us with the requested information for a survey, for example. Knecht GmbH may use your information for inquiries, sending information material, processing orders or to improve our products and services. As such, we process the data you enter in the contact form on the basis of steps to be taken prior to entering into a contract and of our legitimate interest in answering your inquiry and sending you information about our products (GDPR Article 6(1)(b) and (f)). We do not pass on data to third countries.
It goes without saying that even if you send us an application via email, your information will be handled confidentially. A hard copy of your application will be kept by our human resources department. If we enter into an employment contract with an applicant, the data provided will be stored in accordance with legal requirements for the purposes of conducting the employment relationship. If we do not enter into an employment contract with the applicant, the application documents will be automatically deleted two months after informing the applicant of the rejection decision, provided that such a deletion does not conflict with another legitimate interest of the controller. Another legitimate interest in this context is, for example, a burden of proof in proceedings brought under the German General Equal Treatment Act.
If you no longer wish to receive offers, emails or information material, you may withdraw your previous consent at any time. To do so, simply send us an email or tick the appropriate box on the form. Please use the appropriate contact form or send us an email.
Use of Google Analytics
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses “cookies”, which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyse how users use the site. Any information generated by the cookies through the use of this website is generally transferred to a Google server in the USA to be stored there. If IP anonymisation is enabled on this website, Google will first truncate your IP address within member states of the European Union or in other contracting countries for the agreement via the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transferred to a Google server in the USA and truncated there. The operator of this website commissions Google to use this information to evaluate your use of the website in order to compile reports about website activities and to provide further services associated with the website use and Internet use to the operator of the website. The IP address transmitted from your browser by Google Analytics will not be added to other data from Google. You can set your browser software to stop storing cookies; however, please note that you may not be able to use all of the functions of this website in their entirety. In addition, you can prevent the collection of the data related to the cookies produced and related to your use of the website (including your IP address) to Google as well as any processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available at the following link (https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en).

Please note that the code “anonymizeIp” has been added to Google Analytics on this website to guarantee an anonymised collection of IP addresses (so-called IP masking).
On our website you will find links to the external social network Facebook. These links are identified by the Facebook logo.
If you click on these links while you are logged into your personal Facebook account, information about your visit to our website will be sent to Facebook and associated with your account. To prevent a link being established to these servers and your data being stored there, you must log out of your Facebook account before clicking one of the logos.

This website uses Web Fonts from Adobe Typekit (Adobe Systems Incorporated, 345 Park Avenue, San Jose, CA 95110-2704, USA) for a consistent font representation. When you call up a page, your browser loads the required webfonts into your browser cache to display texts and fonts correctly.
To do this, the browser you are using must connect to the Adobe Typekit servers. This will give Adobe Typekit knowledge that your website has been accessed through your IP address. The use of Adobe Typekit Web Fonts is in the interest of an attractive presentation of our website. This constitutes a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO.
If your browser does not support Web Fonts, a default font will be used by your computer.

Withdrawal of your consent to data processing
Some data processing operations are only possible with your explicit consent. You are entitled to withdraw your consent at any time. To do so, simply send us an email.
