Data protection declaration

HANS KAIM GmbH, Schallfelder Weg 1, 97516 Oberschwarzach is the body responsible for this website. You will find further information about the responsible body in the Legal section.

What data is processed?

When you visit our website it may be necessary for us to process some personal data of yours.

So that your website access can be actioned, the IP address of the device you are using has to be processed. Some of your browser's other details are also saved.

Our obligations pursuant to data protection legislation include ensuring the confidentiality and integrity of the personal data processed by our IT systems.

For this purpose the following data is recorded:

  • IP address of the computer accessing the website
  • Operating system of the computer accessing the website
  • Browser version of the computer accessing the website
  • Name of the file accessed
  • Date and time it is accessed
  • Volume of data transmitted
  • URL links

As after no more than 7 days the IP address gets deleted from all systems used in connection with the operation of this website, it is not possible to establish any personal link to the remaining data.

The legal basis for this data processing is Art. 6.1.f of the GDPR. Our “Interest” in the context of Art. 6.1.f is the operation of this website and the implementation of the protective objectives of confidentiality, integrity and availability of data.

Contact form

For anyone interested we provide a contact form on our website via which you can get in touch with us. Via this contact form you are able to send us any message you wish. In addition to what you provide voluntarily and the content of your message, we require that you provide the following information:

  • Surname/first name
  • E-mail address
  • The matter you're writing about

We need this information in order to have you sent an answer about the matter concerning you. Enquiries received via the contact form get saved as a file in a folder. The data may get transferred later into our CRM system. Folders and CRM system are regularly checked to see whether any data can be deleted. Should within the context of a customer / interested party relationship data no longer be required or a conflicting interest of the customers prevail, we shall delete the data concerned as long as no legal duty of retention prevents us from so doing. The legal basis for this data processing is Art. 6.1.a of the GDPR. Our “Interest” in the context of Art. 6.1.f is communication with customers and interested parties.


Whenever you send us an e-mail, we save it until your enquiry has been fully dealt with and/or until the expiry of any legal obligations to keep it. We take care that the data is kept safe from the unauthorised access by third parties.


Like many other websites, we use so-called 'cookies'. Cookies are small files that are transferred from a website server onto your hard drive. In this way we automatically obtain certain data, e.g. IP address, browser being used, operating system and your connection to the Internet.

Cookies cannot be used to launch programmes or to transfer viruses onto a computer. Using the information contained in the cookies, we are able to make navigation for you easier and to ensure that our website pages are correctly displayed.

Under no circumstances is the data that we collect passed on to any third party, nor is any link with personal data created without your consent.

You can, of course, in principle also use our website without cookies. Internet browsers are normally set in such a way that they accept cookies. Generally you are able to disable the use of cookies at any time via your browser's settings. Please use your browser's help function to find out how you can change these settings. Please note that some individual functions of our website may not work if you have disabled the use of cookies.

The legal basis for this data processing is Art. 6.1.f of the GDPR in conjunction with Art. 15 of the German Electronic Media Act (TMG). Our “Interest” in the context of Art. 6.1.f is the operation of this website.

Purposes of the data processing by the responsible body and third party

We process your personal data only for the purposes stated in this data protection declaration. Your personal data is not transferred to any third party for any purpose other than those stated. We pass your personal data on to a third party only if:

  • you have given your explicit consent to this,
  • the processing is necessary for executing a contract with you,
  • the processing is necessary for fulfilling a legal obligation,

the processing is necessary for protecting legitimate interests and there are no grounds to assume that you have a greater legitimate interest in your data not being passed on.

Where we receive enquiries from you outside of any active customer relationship, we process the data for the purposes of sales and promotion. You can at any time withdraw consent for your personal data to be used for promotional purposes.

Voluntary details

Where you have voluntarily given us data, e.g. in forms or e-mails, and it is not required for fulfilling our contractual obligations, we process this data on the basis that we assume that the processing and use of this data is in your interest.

Recipient / Forwarding of data

Data that you supply to us is not passed on to any third party. In particular, no such data is passed to any third parties for their promotional purposes. We do, nevertheless, where applicable employ service providers for the operation of this website or for other of our products. It is possible here that a service provider will gain knowledge of personal data. We select our service providers carefully – especially in respect of data protection and data security – and take all data protection legislation measures necessary for reliable data processing.

Data processing outside the European Union: No processing of your personal data is done by us in any country outside the European Union.

Deleting / blocking data

We adhere to the principles of data avoidance and minimisation. We therefore store your personal data only for as long as is required to achieve the purposes stated here or as prescribed by the diverse retention periods stipulated by legislation. Following discontinuation of the respective purpose / the end of these periods, the data concerned is routinely deleted or access to it blocked in accordance with the legal regulations.

Embedded YouTube videos

On some of our web pages we embed YouTube videos. The operator of the relevant plug-ins is YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. Whenever you visit a page with the YouTube plug-in, a connection is established to the YouTube servers. In this process YouTube gets notified of the pages you are visiting. If you are logged into your YouTube account, YouTube is able to attribute your surfing behaviour to you personally. You can prevent this by logging out of your YouTube account beforehand.

If a YouTube video is started, YouTube deploys cookies that collect information about your user behaviour.

Anyone who has disabled the saving of cookies for the Google Ads programme also avoids such cookies when viewing YouTube videos. YouTube, however, stores non-personal data in other cookies too. If you want to prevent this, you need to block the saving of cookies in your browser.

Google Maps

Via an API this website uses the Google Maps service. The provider is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.

Use of the Google Maps' functions requires the saving of your IP address. This information is generally transferred to a Google server in the USA and saved there. The operator of this website has no influence over this data transfer.

Google Maps is used in the interest of presenting our online offerings in an appealing way and of making it easy to locate the places we mention on our website. This represents a legitimate interest pursuant to Art. 6.1.f of the GDPR.

You will find more details on how Google handles user data in the company's data protection declaration:

Your rights as an affected person

You have the right to information about the personal data relating to you. You can contact us or our data protection officer for this information at any time.

Further, you have the right to correction or deletion or to restriction of the processing, insofar as you are legally entitled to this. Further, you have a right to object to the processing within the bounds of the statutory stipulations. The same applies to a right to data transferability.
