2. Rights of the data subject

(1) You have the following rights towards us regarding the personal data which concerns you:

  • Right of access to information (Art. 15 GDPR) regarding your personal data that we are processing;

  • Right to rectification (Art. 16 GDPR) or completion of your personal data that we are processing;

  • Right to erasure (Art. 17 GDPR) of your personal data that we are processing, unless that processing is required in accordance with Art. 17(3) GDPR by way of exception;

  • Right to restriction of processing (Art. 18 GDPR);

  • Right to notification (Art. 19 GDPR);

  • Right to data portability (Art. 20 GDPR);

  • Right to withdraw consent you have granted to us (Art. 7(3) GDPR). Withdrawing your consent will not affect the legality of processing that has already occurred based on your consent.


(2) Apart from the above, you have the right to lodge a complaint with a data protection supervisory authority if you believe that the processing of your personal data by us is unlawful. That authority is the state data protection officer; you’ll find the competent contact partner for you under the following URL:

(3) Objection to the processing of your data

You may object to our processing of your personal data if that processing is based on a weighing of interests. This is particularly the case if that processing is not necessary to fulfil a contract with you, which we will present in the corresponding description of the functions. If you make such an objection, we ask that you provide reasons why we should not process your personal data as we have been doing. If you make a justified objection, we will examine the circumstances and either discontinue or adjust the data processing or show you our mandatory legitimate reasons why we must continue it. Obviously, you may at any time object to the processing of your personal data for purposes of advertising and data analysis. You can inform us of your objection to use for advertising purposes under the following contact data: König Kunststoffe GmbH, Zeppelinstr. 14, 82205 Gilching, Germany, Tel. +49 8105 7727-100, Fax +49 8105 7727-101,


3. Data security

Since the safety of your data is important to us, your personal data will be transmitted with a secure SSL or TSL encryption/connection. TLS (Transport Layer Security) or the predecessor version SSL (Secure Socket Layer) is a protocol for encrypting data transmissions in the internet. We use them to protect your personal data from third-party access.  You can recognise the encryption of the connection in the browser line by the symbol “https//:” or the padlock icon.

We also use technical and organisational measures to secure our internet presence and other systems so your data will not be lost, destroyed, accessed, altered or disseminated by unauthorised persons. Despite periodic monitoring, however, your data cannot be completely protected against all conceivable dangers.


4. Visiting our internet presence

If you are using our website only for informational purposes and thus do not register or otherwise transmit information to us, we will collect only the personal data that your browser transmits to our server. As soon as you request a file from our internet presence, access data will be collected and stored as standard.

This data set consists of:

  • the page from which the file was requested,

  • the name of the file, 

  • the date and time of the request, 

  • the data quantity transferred each time,

  • the access status / HTTP status code (i.e., whether the file was transmitted or possibly not found, etc.) 

  • a description of the type and version of the browser used, 

  • the operating system installed, the language of the operating system, and the preset resolution, 

  • the IP address used.

These data are technically necessary for us to be able to display our internet presence for you and guarantee the website’s stability and security. Furthermore, they will be evaluated for internal statistical purposes and for the technical administration of our internet presence. The legal basis is Art. 6(1)(1)(f) GDPR. Our legitimate interests arise from the purposes of data collection listed above.


5. Orders placed with us

(1) If you wish to place an order with us, you must disclose certain personal data as part of the order procedure, such as your 

  • Name

  • Address, and

  • Email address.

Our order form will indicate which data will be collected to that end, or this will be disclosed to you when your inquiry is answered. The obligatory information is always specially marked. All further information is voluntary.

Your personal data are disclosed insofar as this is necessary to enter the contract and process your order. The legal basis is Art. 6(1)(1)(b) GDPR.

(2) Commercial and tax law regulations require us to store your address, payment and order data for ten years. Therefore, your data will not be completely erased even if storage is no longer necessary for the contract that has been entered into. However, processing will be performed only to the extent necessary to comply with statutory obligations. The legal basis is Art. 6(1)(1)(c) GDPR.

(3) We will use the data you have transmitted to us during your order only to process that order.  We use the following external service providers to process the order: 

(a) For the goods to be delivered, your address data must be forwarded to our parcel service. That service is obligated to treat your data confidentially, to store and use them only for delivery purposes, and to erase them after delivery has been made successfully. The legal grounds for forwarding the data is Art. 6(1)(1)(b) GDPR.

(b) To process payments, your payment data will be forwarded to the credit institution commissioned or the payment service provider selected. The legal grounds for forwarding the data in this case is Art. 6(1)(1)(b) GDPR.

If you would like to pay on account, we will have your credit risk evaluated by the credit agency [Creditreform München Ganzmüller, Groher & Kollegen KG, Machtflfinger Str. 13, 81379 München] based on mathematical and statistical procedures. To that end, your personal data needed for the credit assessment [name, address, and telephone number] will be transferred to the credit agency, whereby your address data will also be considered. Your data will be collected, stored, and forwarded for the purposes of the credit assessment, to avoid payment default, and on the basis of Articles 6(1)(1)(b and f) GDPR. That information will be used to calculate the statistical probability of a credit default (i.e., your ability to pay). If the credit assessment turns out positive, you may pay on account. But if it turns out negative, our shop system will not offer you that option.

You may object at any time to the transmission of those data to the credit agency, but if you do, will no longer be able to pay on account. The scope of the scoring is limited to whether an order is also possible on account. We use the scoring only to protect ourselves from possible payment defaults.


6. Email advertisements if a customer relationship exists 

(1) If you purchase goods from us, or use our services, and send us your email address in this context, we reserve the right to send you emails in the future containing offers of goods or services similar to those you have purchased (known as “direct marketing”). Under § 7(3) UWG (German Fair Trade Act), no separate consent is necessary. The legal basis is our legitimate interest in personalised direct marketing in accordance with Art. 6(1)(1)(f) GDPR. 

(2) You may object to this processing at any time. To do so, write an email to (, or use the contact data for the controller specified above, or click the “Unsubscribe” button in the email you have received. You will incur only the transmission costs according to the base rates.

(2) The registration for our newsletter uses what is known as a “double opt-in procedure”: after registering with your email address, you will receive an email with an activation link with which you must confirm your registration. The registration will not be finalized until you click that link. As part of registration, we will store your email address, your IP address, and the times of registration and confirmation. This is done so we can clear up any subsequent misuse of third-party data, and to verify your registration.

(3) If a registration is not confirmed within 24 hours via the activation link, we will automatically delete the data stored as part of that registration. 

(4) To register for the newsletter, you need disclose only your email address. You may also voluntarily disclosure additional data, which will be marked separately and used to address you personally.

(6) Please be advised that we [OR: company on our behalf] will evaluate your user behaviour when we send the newsletter. For this evaluation, the emails sent contain “tracking pixels”: single-pixel image files which are stored on our internet presence. For the evaluations, we connect the data named under “Visiting our internet presence”, item 4, and the tracking pixels with your email address and individual ID.  We use this tool based on our legitimate interest in targeted advertising. To that extent, the legal basis is Art. 6(1)(1)(f) GDPR.

All those data will be pseudonymised when collected, so the IDs will not be connected with your additional personal data, ruling out any possibility of identifying you personally.

If you object to having your data analysed for statistical evaluation, you must unsubscribe from the newsletter.
