On the one hand, KMPC uses cookies to determine popular areas of KMPC websites and, on the other hand, to enable the user to save their personal settings so that they are available again the next time the page is visited. To identify popular, visited areas of the KMPC website aggregated statistics are created from website visits.

On websites where cookies are used, a banner about the use of cookies is displayed.

You have the choice to decide if you want to accept cookies or not. You can set your browser to notify you when you receive a cookie or you can exercise your legal right to object by refusing cookies in your browser settings.

Google Web Fonts

This site uses so-called web fonts, provided by Google, for the uniform representation of fonts. When you call up a page, your browser loads the required web fonts into your browser cache to display texts and fonts correctly.

To do this, your browser must connect to Google’s servers. As a result, Google learns that our website has been accessed via your IP address. The use of Google Web Fonts is in the interest of a consistent and attractive presentation of our online services.

If your browser does not support web fonts, a default font will be used by your computer.

5.            Plug-ins and tools

Youtube with extended data protection

KMPC uses plug-ins from the YouTube website. The site operator is YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA.

We use YouTube in enhanced privacy mode. This mode, according to YouTube, means that YouTube does not store information about visitors to this site before they watch the video. However, sharing data with YouTube partners is not necessarily excluded in enhanced privacy mode. So, regardless of whether you watch a video, YouTube still connects to the Google DoubleClick network.

Once you start a YouTube video on our website, it will connect to YouTube’s servers. It informs the YouTube server about which of our pages you’ve visited. If you’re logged into your YouTube account, YouTube will allow you to associate your browsing behaviour directly with your personal profile. You can prevent this by logging out of your YouTube account.

In addition, after starting a video, YouTube may store various cookies on your device. With the help of these cookies, YouTube is able to collect information about visitors to our website. This information will, amongst other things, be used to capture video statistics, improve usability and prevent fraud. The cookies remain on your device until you delete them.

If necessary, after the launch of a YouTube video, additional data processing operations may be triggered over which we have no control.

YouTube inclusion is in the interest of maintaining an attractive presentation of KMPC online offer. This constitutes a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR.

KMPC integrates the maps of the Google Maps service provided by Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.

The user decides about the nature and extent of the information disclosed beyond the email address.

The data will not be used for other purposes or passed on to third parties without your express consent. This excludes our subsidiaries, for the purposes of fulfilling your request.
