Data protection declaration for website operators according to the requirements of the GDPR
The trustful handling of your data is our top priority. We want to give you the greatest possible protection of your privacy. We process your data provided by the use of the website only within the scope of the consent you have given and the legal data protection regulations. Processing is based on this data protection declaration.
The use of our website is usually possible without providing personal data. Insofar as personal data (e.g. name, address or email address) is collected on our website, this is always done on a voluntary basis as far as possible. This data will not be passed on to third parties without your express consent.
We would like to point out that data transmission over the Internet (e.g. when communicating by email) can have security gaps. It is not possible to completely protect data from third-party access.
We hereby expressly object to the use of contact data published within the framework of the imprint obligation by third parties for sending unsolicited advertising and information material. The site operators expressly reserve the right to take legal action in the event that unsolicited advertising information is sent, such as spam e-mails.
The data protection declaration will be updated if necessary. We will inform you about the updated conditions on the screen and then ask you to accept the changed conditions.
Status of data protection declaration: March 2020

We collect personal data based on your consent, to fulfill the contract and / or to fulfill a legal obligation.
Personal data is all information that relates to an identified or identifiable natural person. This includes, for example, information such as your name, your age, your address, your telephone number, your date of birth, your email address, your IP address or user behavior. Information for which we can make no (or only disproportionate) reference to your person, e.g. by anonymizing the information, is not personal data. The processing of personal data (such as collecting, querying, using, storing or transmitting) always requires a legal basis or your consent. Processed personal data will be deleted as soon as the purpose of the processing has been achieved and there are no longer any statutory retention requirements.
If we process your personal data for the provision of certain services, we will inform you below about the specific processes, the scope and purpose of the data processing, the legal basis for the processing and the respective storage period.

Rights of those affected
As a person affected by the processing of your data, you can assert certain rights with us in accordance with the GDPR and other relevant data protection regulations. The following section contains explanations about your rights as a data subject under the GDPR.
According to the GDPR, you have the following rights vis-à-vis Kimodu in particular:
Right to information under Art. 15 GDPR: You can request information from us at any time about your data that we hold about you. This information concerns, among other things, the data categories processed by us, for what purposes we process them, the origin of the data if we did not collect it directly from you, and, if applicable, the recipients to whom we have transmitted your data. You can get a free copy of your data from us. If you are interested in additional copies, we reserve the right to charge you for the additional copies.
Right to correction according to Art. 16 GDPR: You can ask us to correct your data. We will take reasonable measures to keep your data that we hold and process about you correctly, completely and up to date, based on the most current information available to us.
Right to deletion according to Art. 17 GDPR: You can ask us to delete your data, provided the legal requirements are met. According to Art. 17 GDPR this can be the case if
– the data is no longer required for the purposes for which it was collected or otherwise processed;
– you withdraw your consent, which is the basis of the data processing, and there is no other legal basis for the processing;
– you object to the processing of your data and there are no overriding legitimate reasons for the processing, or you object to the data processing for direct marketing purposes;
– the data has been processed unlawfully unless processing is necessary,
– to ensure compliance with a legal obligation that requires us to process your data;
– in particular with regard to statutory retention periods;
– to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.
Right to restriction of processing according to Art. 18 GDPR: You can ask us to restrict the processing of your data if
You contest the accuracy of the data for the period of time it takes us to verify the accuracy of the data;
the processing is unlawful and you refuse to have your data deleted and instead request a restriction of use;
we no longer need your data, but you need it to assert, exercise or defend legal claims;
You have objected to the processing, as long as it is not certain whether our legitimate reasons outweigh yours.
Right to data portability according to Art. 20 GDPR: Upon your request, we will transfer your data – insofar as this is technically possible – to another person responsible. However, you only have this right if the data processing is based on your consent or is necessary to carry out a contract. Instead of receiving a copy of your data, you can also ask us to send the data directly to another person you have specified.
Right to object according to Art. 21 GDPR: You can object to the processing of your data at any time for reasons that arise from your particular situation, provided the data processing is based on your consent or on our legitimate interests or that of a third party. In this case we will no longer process your data. The latter does not apply if we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing that outweigh your interests or we need your data to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.
Deadlines for the fulfillment of data subject rights
We always strive to respond to all inquiries within 30 days. However, this period may be extended for reasons that relate to the specific right of the data subject or the complexity of your request.
Restriction of information on the fulfillment of data subject rights
In certain situations, due to legal requirements, we may not be able to provide you with all of your data. If we have to reject your request for information in such a case, we will also inform you of the reasons for the rejection.
Complaint to regulatory authorities
Kimodu takes your concerns and rights very seriously. However, if you believe that we have not sufficiently responded to your complaints or concerns, you have the right to file a complaint with a competent data protection authority.
Cookies and tracking on our websites
Our websites sometimes use so-called cookies. Cookies do no damage to your computer and contain no viruses. Cookies serve to make our offer more user-friendly, more effective and safer. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer and saved by your browser.
Most of the cookies we use are so-called „session cookies“. Most of them will be automatically deleted after your visit. Other cookies remain on your device until you delete them. These cookies enable us to recognize your browser the next time you visit. Session cookies are usually first party cookies (such as those created by our underlying WordPress CMS) that are sent back to the website on which they were created. Third party cookies are cookies from external third party providers whose plugins / services use a website. These are sent to another website to which they belong (such as performance cookies from Google Analytics).
You can set your browser so that you are informed about the setting of cookies and only allow cookies in individual cases, exclude the acceptance of cookies for certain cases or in general, and activate the automatic deletion of cookies when the browser is closed. If cookies are deactivated, the functionality of this website may be restricted.
There are two types of cookies:
Cookies without consent
Strictly necessary cookies, also called „strictly necessary“, guarantee functions without which you would not be able to use this website as intended. These cookies are used exclusively by Kimodu and are therefore so-called first party cookies. They are only saved on your device during the current browser session. Strictly necessary cookies ensure, for example, that when switching pages, the functionality of a switch from http to https and thus compliance with increased security requirements for data transmission is guaranteed. Your consent is not required for the use of strictly necessary cookies.
Cookies requiring approval
Cookies, which according to the above definition are not absolutely necessary to use the website, fulfill important tasks. Without these cookies there are functions that enable comfortable browsing on our website, e.g. pre-filled forms or the shopping cart are no longer available. Settings you have made cannot then be saved and must therefore be queried again on each page.
Depending on their function and purpose, cookies can be divided into four categories: Strictly Necessary Cookies, Functional Cookies, Performance Cookies and Cookies for Marketing Purposes.
Strictly necessary cookies
Strictly necessary Cookies are required so that you can move around a website and use its properties. Without these cookies, functionalities cannot be guaranteed, for example that actions performed during a visit (e.g. text entry or search) are retained, even when navigating between individual pages of the website.
Functional cookies enable a website to save information that has already been given (e.g. navigation tree type, filter settings for viewing) and to offer the user improved, more personal functions. Functional cookies are used, for example, to enable requested functions such as playing teasers. These cookies collect anonymized information, they cannot track your movements on other websites.
Performance cookies (user tracking)
Performance cookies collect information about how a website is used – such as which pages a visitor visits most frequently and whether he receives error messages from a page. These cookies do not store any information that allows the user to be identified. The information collected is aggregated and thus evaluated anonymously. These cookies are only used to improve the performance of a website and thus the user experience.
Cookies for marketing purposes are used to display advertisements that are relevant to the user and tailored to his interests. They are also used to limit the number of times an ad appears and to measure the effectiveness of advertising campaigns. You register whether you have visited a website or not. This information can be shared with third parties, e.g. B. Advertisers can be shared. Cookies to improve targeting and advertising are often linked to page functionalities of third parties.
In addition to the actual CMS functionality of WordPress itself, the following add-ons and their cookies are implemented in our website, but not all add-ons must be active:
The website itself uses the following cookies
This website uses functions of the web analytics service Google Analytics. The provider is Google Inc. 1600 Amphitheater Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. Google Analytics uses so-called „cookies“. These are text files that are stored on your computer and that enable an analysis of your use of the website. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there.
If IP anonymization is activated 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. The full IP address is only transferred to a Google server in the USA and abbreviated there in exceptional cases. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity and to provide the website operator with other services related to website activity and internet usage. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data.
You can prevent the storage of cookies by setting your browser software accordingly; however, we would like to point out that in this case you may not be able to use all functions of this website to their full extent. You can also prevent Google from collecting the data generated by the cookie and relating to your use of the website (including your IP address) and from processing this data by Google by downloading the browser plug-in available under the following link and install: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de
This website uses the Google Analytics reports on demographic characteristics, in which data from interest-based advertising from Google and visitor data from third parties (e.g. age, gender and interests) are used. This data cannot be traced back to a specific person and can be deactivated at any time via the ad settings.
Google Web Fonts
For uniform representation of fonts, this page uses web fonts provided by Google. When you open a page, your browser loads the required web fonts into your browser cache to display texts and fonts correctly.
For this purpose your browser has to establish a direct connection to Google servers. Google thus becomes aware that our web page was accessed via your IP address. The use of Google Web fonts is done in the interest of a uniform and attractive presentation of our plugin. This constitutes a justified interest pursuant to Art. 6 (1) (f) DSGVO.
If your browser does not support web fonts, a standard font is used by your computer.
We protect your personal data from the risks associated with data processing, in particular from unauthorized access, use or publication. For this purpose, we maintain appropriate technical and organizational measures in accordance with Art. 32 GDPR (so-called TOM’s), which are based on the current state of the art. The following security measures are used as an example to protect your personal data from misuse or other unauthorized processing:
Access to personal data is restricted only to a limited number of authorized persons for the stated purposes.
The data collected is only transmitted in encrypted form.
Sensitive data such as passwords are only stored in encrypted and non-reversible form.
The IT systems for processing the data are technically isolated from other systems to prevent unauthorized access e.g. through hacking.
Access to the IT systems is constantly monitored in order to identify and prevent abuse at an early stage.
Our website and general services are provided by our long-time hosting provider Host Europe GmbH, Welserstraße 14, 51149 Cologne, Germany, on German servers in the DataCenter Cologne and alternatively in Strasbourg, France.
