Data Protection

Our data protection declaration

KWD Group AG & Co. KG (hereinafter referred to as KWD) is pleased about your visit to this website. The protection of your personal data is very important to us. That's why we always treat your personal information confidentially.

Below we inform you about the privacy in our company. Your personal data will be used exclusively within the framework of the legal data protection regulations, such e.g. the Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG) or the General Data Protection Regulation (DSGVO).

By using this website you are agreeing to the collection and use of your personal data as declared in this data protection declaration.

Extent of the data collection and storage

Every time you visit our website our system collects automated data and information. While still ensuring your anonymity, data such as internet browser, operating system, user’s IP address, referrer URL, and data and time of the server request is transmitted when our website is accessed.

This data cannot be assigned to any certain person(s) by KWD. This data is not merged with any other data sources. After being statistically evaluated, the data shall then be deleted. It shall be used exclusively for the purpose of improving the attractiveness, contents and functionality of our website. Art. 6 S. 1 lit f GDPR is the legal basis for the temporary storage of the data and log files, as well as our entitled interest in the data processing.


Collection and processing of personal data

Furthermore, personal data is only collected by us if you communicate it to us yourself, for example via contact form or email. If we obtain consent from the data subject for the processing of personal data, Art. 6 S. 1 lit a GDPR is the valid legal basis for the processing of personal data.

If the processing is necessary for the protection of a legitimate interest of our company or of a third party and the interests, basic rights, and basic freedoms of the data subject do not outweigh the interest of the former, then Art. 6 S. 1 lit f GDPR serves as the legal basis for the processing.

Application process

If you apply at one of our companies electronically, your information shall be exclusively used for the processing of your application and shall not be divulged to third parties. Please be aware that any applications sent to us by email are transmitted unencrypted.

Data deletion and storage period

Personal data is deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of its storage no longer applies. It can be stored beyond that if provisions in Union regulations, laws or other provisions that the controllers are subject to are made for this by the European or national legislators. The data is also then blocked or deleted when the storage period stipulated by the listed standards expires unless there is a necessity to continue storing the data for a contract completion or fulfilment.

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc. ("Google"). The use includes the operating mode "Universal Analytics". This makes it possible to assign data, sessions and interactions across multiple devices to a pseudonymous user ID, thus analyzing the activities of a user across devices. Google uses the information to evaluate the use of the website, to compile reports on website activity and to provide us with other services related to website activity and internet usage.

Google Analytics uses cookies to enable analysis of website usage. The information about user behavior generated here is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. However, in the event of activation of IP anonymization on this website, your IP address will be shortened beforehand by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be sent to a Google server in the US and shortened there. The IP address provided by Google Analytics as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data.

Please note that on this website Google Analytics has been extended by the code "gat._anonymizeIp ();" in order to ensure the anonymized collection of IP addresses (so-called IP-Masking). The data sent by us and linked to cookies, user IDs (eg user ID) or advertising IDs will be automatically deleted after 14 months.

You can prevent the collection of the data (including your IP address) generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website from Google as well as the processing of this data by Google by downloading the browser plug-in available under the following link and install:

Art. 6 S. 1 lit a GDPR is the legal basis for the processing of personal data using cookies for the purposes of analysis with the obtained consent of the user.

Social Media


On our website we use a link to the social network Facebook, which is operated exclusively by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA (Facebook). The link is identified by the Facebook logo (no Facebook plug-in).

When you click on the Facebook logo, your browser establishes a direct connection to the Facebook servers. If you are already logged in to Facebook via your personal user account, the information about your visit to our website is automatically forwarded to Facebook. We would like to point out that you use this Facebook page and its functions under your own responsibility. This applies in particular to the use of the interactive functions (e.g. commenting, sharing, rating). When you visit our Facebook page, Facebook collects, among other things, your IP address and other information that is available on your PC in the form of cookies. This information is used to provide us, as the operator of the Facebook pages, with statistical information about the use of the Facebook page. Facebook provides more detailed information on this under the following link: The data collected about you in this context is processed by Facebook Ltd. and may be transferred to countries outside the European Union. Facebook describes in general terms what information it receives and how it is used in its data usage guidelines. There you will also find information on how to contact Facebook and how to post advertisements. The Data Usage Guidelines are available at the following link: The complete Facebook data policies can be found here: Facebook does not conclusively or clearly state how Facebook uses the data from visits to Facebook pages for its own purposes, to what extent activities on the Facebook page are assigned to individual users, how long Facebook stores this data and whether data from a visit to the Facebook page is passed on to third parties, and is not known to us. When you access a Facebook page, the IP address assigned to your end device is transmitted to Facebook. According to Facebook, this IP address is anonymized (for "German" IP addresses) and deleted after 90 days. Facebook also stores information about its users' end devices (e.g. as part of the "registration notification" function); Facebook may thus be able to assign IP addresses to individual users. If you are currently logged on to Facebook, a cookie with your Facebook identification is stored on your terminal. This enables Facebook to track that you have visited this page and how you have used it. This also applies to all other Facebook pages. Facebook uses Facebook buttons embedded in Web pages to record your visits to these pages and associate them with your Facebook profile. This information can be used to tailor content or advertising to you. If you want to avoid this, you should log out of Facebook or deactivate the function "stay logged in", delete the cookies on your device and close and restart your browser. This deletes Facebook information that immediately identifies you.

Google Maps

Our website uses Google Maps API (Application Programming Interface) for the visual representation of geographical information (maps). Google Maps is operated by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. By using Google Maps, you consent to the collection, processing and use by Google, its agents and third parties of data that is automatically collected during your use of Google Maps and of data that you input.

When Google Maps is used, information about the use of our website including your IP address is transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. The transmission of data to the USA is associated with data protection risks. If you do not wish this, you have the option of deactivating the Google Maps service and preventing data transfer to Google. To do this, you must deactivate JavaScript in your browser. However, we would like to point out that in this case you will not be able to use the map display.

You can find more information about the collection and processing of your data by Google as well as your rights in this regard in Google's data protection declaration under and in the additional terms of use for Google Maps and Google Earth under
