Data protection and usage information
1 Introduction and General Provisions
We are very pleased about your interest in our company. Data protection is of a particularly high priority for the management of DMK GmbH. The use of the Internet pages of the DMK GmbH is possible without any indication of personal data. However, if website visitors want to use special services provided by our enterprise via our website, processing of personal data could become necessary. If processing of personal data is necessary and if there is no legal basis for such processing, we will generally obtain the consent of the data subject.
The processing of personal data, such as the name, address, or e-mail address of a data subject shall always be in line with the General Data Protection Regulation. By means of this data protection declaration, our enterprise would like to inform the public about the type, scope and purpose of the personal data we collect, use and process. Furthermore, website users are informed of their rights with the help of this data protection declaration.
As the controller, the DMK GmbH has implemented numerous technical and organisational measures to ensure the most complete protection of personal data processed through this website. Nevertheless, digital data transmissions can always be subject to security vulnerabilities, so that absolute protection cannot be guaranteed. For this reason, every data subject is free to transmit personal data to us by alternative means, for example by telephone.

2 Notes on data collection
This document informs Users about the technologies that help this Website to achieve the purposes described below. Such technologies allow the Owner to access and store information (for example by using a Cookie) or use resources (for example by running a script) on a User’s device as they interact with this Website.
For simplicity, all such technologies are defined as "Trackers" within this document – unless there is a reason to differentiate.
For example, while Cookies can be used on both web and mobile browsers, it would be inaccurate to talk about Cookies in the context of mobile apps as they are a browser-based Tracker. For this reason, within this document, the term Cookies is only used where it is specifically meant to indicate that particular type of Tracker.
Some of the purposes for which Trackers are used may also require the User's consent. Whenever consent is given, it can be freely withdrawn at any time following the instructions provided in this document.
This Website only uses Trackers managed directly by the Owner (so-called “first-party” Trackers).
The validity and expiration periods of first-party Cookies and other similar Trackers may vary depending on the lifetime set by the Owner. Some of them expire upon termination of the User’s browsing session.
We base the use of technically necessary cookies on Art. 6 Para. 1 lit.f GDPR: the processing takes place to improve the functionality of our website. They are therefore necessary to safeguard our legitimate interests. If a corresponding consent has been requested, processing takes place exclusively on the basis of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a GDPR. The consent can be revoked at any time.
