Important information about the safeguarding of your information
Safeguarding your personal information
In today's connected world, unauthorized attempts to access information are a reality with which private individuals and companies are confronted on a daily basis. Safeguarding information against such attempts is a considerable challenge.
Data protection is a high priority issue at KMLabs, Inc., and we invest time, energy and money into ensuring that our systems are secure. When you use our web pages and respond to our communications, you entrust us with your personal information. Safeguarding this information is important to us.
Data Protection Notice
This data protection notice applies to web pages, domains, social media platforms and applications belonging to KMLabs, Inc. (Hereinafter simply referred to as KMLabs.)
In some cases, KMLabs’ web pages also contain links to web pages of third-party, external companies such as distributors to which this data protection and legal notice does not apply.

KMLabs is a corporation operating on a global scale.
When you visit our web pages, data may be collected which may, in some cases, be of a personal nature. In this notice, we point out what personal information we collect during your visit to our web pages, and how we handle this data.

Furthermore, KMLabs is permitted to collect and process address and order information for its own marketing purposes. This means, for example, that KMLabs may compare email addresses collected during order processes with Facebook Ireland Limited's email address lists in order to display personalized advertisements to the owner of the address. Facebook Ireland Limited is not permitted, however, to use the email address for any purpose other than comparing it with its address list. Information is sent to third parties for advertising purposes only in cases where it is legally permissible to do so.
You may object to the use, processing, and transfer of your personal information at any time by means of an informal written letter addressed to KMLabs or via email (add link to form). Upon receipt of your objection, we will cease to use, process, and transfer the information in question for any purpose other than carrying out the orders and tasks you have requested; we will also cease to send you advertising and promotional materials.

Information on Data Security
KMLabs understands the importance of the protection and discreet handling of the information that you transfer to us via the Internet. Data security on our web pages is a top priority. We have therefore made efforts to ensure that our online security measures are effective. Essential data traffic on KMLabs web pages is therefore encrypted. KMLabs endeavors to update its encryption technology on a continuous basis in line with technical progress in order to guarantee the confidential handling of the information you send us over the Internet.
We use different technologies for authentication, to simplify navigation, and to improve usability. These technologies include “cookies” that measure the use and efficacy of a website. A cookie is a data item that a website sends to your browser. It is stored on your system and is used to identify it (see Cookies, Web Tracking and Web Analytics).
Visitors' IP addresses are captured on our web pages for the analysis of malfunctions, for website administration, and for the attainment of demographic characteristics. Furthermore, we use the IP addresses and other information, made available to us by you on this website or by other means as required, to find out which of our web pages are being visited and what topics interest our visitors.
Cookies, Web Tracking and Web Analytics
KMLabs web pages and online platforms collect and store information, in part in anonymized or pseudonymized form, regarding the surfing behavior of website visitors for the purposes of marketing. This information is stored on your computer using cookies and makes it possible for us to analyze your surfing behavior in anonymous form. This includes, for example, the city you come from, what type of browser and operating system you are using, and which pages you have visited on our website. This information can in no way be used to personally identify you and is used solely for the purpose of improving your browsing experience. To ensure that your information remains anonymous, your IP is either shortened or collected in an anonymous form. Your information is not used for any other purpose, nor is it sent to third parties, without your explicit consent.
Depending on their function and purpose, cookies can be grouped into one of four categories: strictly necessary cookies, performance cookies, functional cookies, and cookies for marketing purposes.
Strictly Necessary Cookies
Strictly necessary cookies are needed to allow you to navigate through a website and use the features built into it. Without these cookies, the website's functionality cannot be guaranteed. This means that certain actions performed by the user (e.g. text input, configuration options) are not stored as the user navigates to other pages on the website.
Functional cookies make it possible for a website to store information provided by the user (e.g. username, language selection, current location) to improve their browsing experience and personalize the functionality of the website. For example, a website could provide the user with local pricing information if a cookie is used to store the region that the user is in. Functional cookies are also used to perform commands such as video playback. These cookies collect information in anonymous form and cannot be used to track your use of other web pages.
Performance cookies are used to collect information about how a website is used (e.g. information about which pages the visitor visits most frequently and whether or not the user receives any error messages). These cookies do not store any information that could be used to identify the user. The collected information is aggregated and anonymized. These cookies are used exclusively to improve the performance of the website and thus the user's experience.
Cookies for Marketing Purposes
Cookies for marketing purposes are used to present users with advertising or information that is relevant to you and that is tailored to your interests. They are also used to limit the number of impressions of an ad and to measure the effectiveness of advertising campaigns. They register whether a user has visited a page or not. This information can then be shared with advertisers. Cookies that are used to improve the relevance of advertising are sometimes linked to page features from third parties.
Google has added the code "anonymizeIp" to this website to enable the anonymous identification of IP addresses.
In some cases, we use retargeting methods by which visitors to our website are tagged so that they can be presented with targeted information on other web pages. This information cannot be used to identify individuals and can be deactivated at any time by changing the display settings or privacy settings in your browser.
In some cases, we use the remarketing feature from Google Inc. This feature is used to present website visitors with advertisements related to their interests within the Google advertising network. To do this, a cookie is saved to the visitor's browser, which makes it possible to identify the user when he or she visits a website that is part of the Google advertising network. On these sites, the user may be presented with advertising related to content that he or she viewed previously on other web pages that employ the Google remarketing feature. According to Google, it does not collect personal information during this process. If you do not want Google to use the remarketing feature, this can generally be deactivated by changing the settings under http://www.google.com/settings/ads.
Through the use of the Google remarketing feature and the "similar audiences" feature, you may be presented with advertising from KMLabs that is tailored to your person and personal interests when you visit web pages within Google's "Display Network". You can also deactivate the cookies used in this process at any time by changing the display settings or privacy settings in your browser.
Using Social Plug-ins
Some KMLabs web pages feature the following social plug-in buttons for other web pages:
These buttons, if displayed on the website, do not establish any contact with the servers from Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter or similar online service providers. For a connection to be activated, and for communication with Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter to be established, you must firstly grant your approval – by clicking on the buttons.
If you are already logged into a social network of your choice, this is carried out without another window being opened. As this transfer occurs directly, we do not obtain any knowledge of the data transferred. What is transferred is the fact that you have launched the respective site. Insofar as you are simultaneously logged onto Facebook or other social media platforms, this information will be assigned to your social media account and will thus be connected to you.
With regard to the further use and storage of your personal data by Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter, please obtain the relevant information directly from these social media companies. It is likewise possible to block social plugins through your browser using add-ons.
