Below we inform you about the details of data protection when visiting our website.
Using our website is generally possible without providing personal data.

The processing of personal data takes place exclusively in accordance with this data protection declaration.
This data protection declaration applies to the use of the website at the address https://www.kamat.de. For linked contents of other providers, the data protection declaration deposited on the linked website is authoritative.
We point out that in the context of data transmission via the Internet security gaps may occur, which can not be prevented even by the technical design of this website. Complete protection of personal data is not possible when using the Internet.

Our website is operated on the servers of Mittwald CM Service GmbH & Co. KG, Königsberger Straße 4-6, 32339 Espelkamp, Germany.
We have concluded an order processing agreement with Mittwald CM Service GmbH & Co. KG.
When our websites are accessed, data is automatically collected and stored in log files on our hoster’s server. This data may contain a personal reference. Among the data collected are:
- IP (IPv4 and IPv6) anonymized (storage period 60 days)
- directory protection user
- date and time of retrieval
- accessed pages
- status code
- amount of data
- user agent
- Internet browser type and version
- name of the retrieved web page
- the operating system under the browser with patch level
The hoster uses the collected data to ensure the trouble-free operation of the website as well as to ensure IT security and to improve our offer. In case of concrete indications, the log data may be analyzed subsequently. The temporary storage of the IP address by the hoster is necessary to enable delivery of the website to the user’s computer. For this purpose, your IP address must remain stored for the duration of the session.
This data is not merged with other data sources.
The legal basis for data collection is Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f GDPR. Our legitimate interest in data collection results from the purposes mentioned.
The data is deleted by the hoster as soon as it is no longer required to achieve the purpose for which it was collected. In the case of the collection of data for the provision of the website, this is the case when the respective session has ended.
In the event that the data is stored in log files, this technical information will be deleted or made unrecognizable after 60 days at the latest.
The collection of data for the provision of the website and the storage of the data in log files is mandatory for the operation of the website. Consequently, there is no possibility for you to object.
In addition to the aforementioned data, cookies are used on your computer when you use and visit our website.
Cookies are small text files that are stored by your browser on your end device to store certain information. Furthermore, these cookies are used to make the use of our offer more pleasant and convenient for you or for analytical purposes.
Most of the cookies we use are so-called “session cookies”. They serve to make the services of our website technically available to you. After your visit, these cookies are automatically deleted from your browser.
Other cookies remain on your computer and enable us to recognize your end device on your next visit (so-called persistent or permanent cookies).
The next time you visit our website with the same device, the information stored in cookies is either read out by our website (“First Party Cookie”) or another website to which the cookie belongs (“Third Party Cookie”).
These cookies are automatically deleted from your system after a preset period of time, which differs depending on the cookie.
Through the stored and returned information, the respective website recognizes that you have already accessed and visited it with the browser of your end device.
We use this information to be able to optimally design and display the website according to your preferences. Only the cookie itself is identified on your end device.
Any further storage of personal data will only take place with your express consent or if this is absolutely necessary in order to be able to use the service offered and accessed by you accordingly.
This website uses the following types of cookies, the scope and functionality of which are explained below:
- essential cookies: Essential cookies ensure functions without which you cannot use our websites as intended. These cookies are used exclusively by us and serve, for example, to ensure that you, as a registered user, always remain logged in when accessing various sub-pages of our website and thus do not have to re-enter your login data each time you call up a new page. The legal basis of the use is our legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f GDPR.
- tracking cookies: these cookies are used to collect information about the websites visited by the user, to create targeted and more effective advertisements for the user, and to allow us to identify the interests of website visitors in order to make our website more interesting in the future.
Tracking cookies are only set after your active consent.
The legal basis for data processing here is Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. a GDPR.
Opt-out for Tracking Cookies
You can also manage cookies used for online advertising through the tools developed in many countries as part of self-regulatory programs, such as the US-based www.aboutads.info/choices/ or the EU-based “http://www.youronlinechoices.com/uk/your-ad-choices”
You can revoke this consent to the cookies at any time with effect for the future here.
You can set your browser so that you are informed about the setting of cookies and cookies only in individual cases, e.g. third-party cookies (cookies that are set by a third party, i.e. not by the actual website on which you are currently browsing are located), allow the acceptance of cookies for certain cases or generally exclude them, as well as activate the automatic deletion of cookies when the browser is closed. You can delete stored cookies at any time using your web browser.
You have the option to generally deactivate cookies in your browser at any time.
However, when cookies are disabled, the functionality of this website may be limited.
Cookies are stored on your terminal device until you delete these cookies, which is possible at any time. Furthermore, expired cookies are automatically deleted by your browser if you have set up your browser accordingly. Expired cookies are no longer sent to our servers by your browser and can therefore no longer be used by us.
Here you can find information on how to delete cookies from your browser and manage cookie settings for the most popular browsers:
Desktop-PC / Laptop
If you have not made or make any other settings, cookies that enable or are intended to ensure the necessary technical functions remain on your end device until you close the browser; other cookies can remain on your end device for longer (maximum 6 months).
To safeguard your privacy, you should regularly check the cookies on your respective terminal device as well as your browsing history and delete them on your own.
5. SSL or TLS encryption
For security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as orders or inquiries that you send to us as the site operator, this site uses an SSL or TLS encryption. You can recognize an encrypted connection by the fact that the address line of the browser changes from “http://” to “https://” and by the lock symbol in your browser line.
If SSL or TLS encryption is activated, the data that you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties (end-to-end encryption). The protocols authenticate the communication partner and ensure the integrity of the transported data.
6. Contact options by form or by e-mail
On our website there is the possibility to contact us by e-mail and contact form.
In this context, your information from the form or from the e-mail, including the contact data you provide there, will be stored and processed by us for the purpose of processing the request and in case of follow-up questions. This data (e.g. name, address, telephone number, e-mail address, IP address) will not be disclosed to third parties without your consent.
A combination of the data with other data collected on this website does not take place.
The data may be stored as part of customer relations management (CRM) if you are already a customer of our company.
The contact form is sent encrypted using TLS technology. Encryption serves to prevent unauthorized access by third parties to your personal data.
The processing of this data is based on Art. 6 (1) p. 1 lit. b GDPR, if your request is related to the performance of a contract or is necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures. In all other cases, the processing is based on our legitimate interest in the effective processing of requests addressed to us (Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f GDPR).
The data you provide will remain with us until you request us to delete it, you object to the processing or the purpose for storing the data no longer applies (e.g. after processing your request has been completed). Mandatory legal provisions – in particular retention periods – remain unaffected.

8. Use of Google Analytics
This website uses the web analytics service “Google Analytics”, operated by Google LLC., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA, or if you have your registered office or place of residence in the EU, Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland (“Google”).
The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States.
IP anonymization is active on this website. However, by activating IP anonymization through the -anonymizeIP function on this website, your IP address will be truncated beforehand by Google within Member States of the European Union or in other contracting states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there.
On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage to the website operator.
The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other data from Google.
You can also prevent the collection of data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website (including your IP address) to Google and the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plugin available under the following link: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de.
Google processes your personal data on our behalf. We have therefore concluded an order processing agreement with Google in accordance with Art. 28 (3) GDPR (AVV can be viewed at: https://privacy.google.com/businesses/processorterms/), in which Google undertakes to protect your personal data and not to pass it on to third parties for purposes other than those mentioned above.
The legal basis for the use of Google Analytics is your consent pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1. p. 1 lit. a GDPR, insofar as you give us your consent to this when you first call up the page.
Since there is no EU Commission adequacy decision for the transfer of personal data to the USA, we have concluded standard data protection clauses with Google within the meaning of Art. 46 (2) lit. c GDPR.
You can revoke your consent to data processing and transfer at any time without giving reasons by sending a message to the specified contact details of our data protection officer, deleting the cookies in your browser or by clicking on the following link:
Change cookie-settings for Google Analytics.
The lawfulness of data processing that has already taken place is not affected by the revocation of consent.
