Collection of personal data when you visit our website
If you only our website for informational purposes, i.e. if you do not register or otherwise provide us with information, we shall only collect the Data that your personal browser sends to our server. This Data is necessary from a technical point of view to enable you view our website. The Data is also required in order to ensure the stability and security of our website. (Legal basis is Article 6, Paragraph 1, Sentence 1, Letter f of the GDPR).
- IP address
- Date and time of request
- Country of origin of request
- Content requested (specific web page)
- Access status/http status code
- Website from which the request is launched
- Operating system and interface
- Browser software language and version
- Data volume sent in each case
- Time zone difference to Greenwich Mean Time (GMT)
Some of the services offered on our website can only be performed if we are able to contact you. This means that availing yourself of these services is dependent on you providing us with specific Data, e.g. your contact details. We only collect, use and process your Data insofar as this is necessary for the performance of our respective services. If you contact us via email or a contact form, your email address (and other information of a personal nature that you made provide to us of your own free will) are stored by us so we can carry our your request and answer any questions you may have about our products and services. We will delete your Data when it is no longer required. We will restrict processing to comply with our statutory retention obligations. We will process your Data in line with Article 6, Paragraph 1, Sentence 1, Letter f of the GDPR.
Purpose of processing, legal basis and retention period
If we request your consent to process your Data, we will do so in line with Article 6, Paragraph 1, Sentence 1, Letter a of the GDPR. If processing your Data is required to fulfil a contact or pre-contractual measures prompted by your request, our processing is legally based on Article 6, Paragraph 1, Sentence 1, Letter b of the GDPR. In cases in which processing of personal data is required to fulfil our legal obligations, processing is in line with Article 6, Paragraph 1, Sentence 1, Letter c of the GDPR. If processing of your Data is necessary to protect a legitimate interest of our company or that of a third party, and if at the same time the interests, basic rights and freedoms of other individuals, which require the protection of personal data, do not take precedence over our legitimate interest, Article 6, Paragraph 1, Letter f of the GDPR shall serve as legal basis for said processing.
Unless otherwise specified, we will delete your Data in accordance with Article 17 and Article 18 of the GDPR or restrict its processing. We will only process and store your Data for as long as it is required to fulfil our contractual and legal obligations. Data no longer required for the intended purpose is deleted regularly unless temporary further processing is necessary, which may arise on account of other legally permissible purposes.
We may use your Data to avoid ourselves from the risk of payment defaults by conducting credit checks. Based on scoring (profiling) we assess the extent to which customers will fulfil their payment obligations; the score ratings help us with our decision-making. Scoring is based on a recognised mathematical-statistical method. We store the results of credit data for 365 days.
Recipients of your Data
In general, we neither sell nor loan user Data. We only transfer data to third parties beyond the scope of this privacy statement if it is necessary for the fulfilment of the relevant service you have requested. We work with cooperation partners to render our services. The latter perform services for you on their own responsibility/in relation to your contract with us. You can order these services and consent to the inclusion of the cooperation partner, or inclusion is based on legal permission. In the areas of Marketing, Sales, IT, Logistics and HR we also work with processors in line with Article 28 of the GDPR. These processors are carefully selected by us. We continue to bear responsibility for the protection of your data in the case of processing by a processor. In other cases we send data to government agencies at their request. However, this only takes place if a legal obligation, such as a court order, exists.
Where is my data processed?
We may process your data in the UK, Germany and European countries (EU/EEA). Insofar as your Data is exceptionally processed in very limited special cases in countries outside the European Union (thus in so-called “third party countries”), this will only take place provided you have given your express consent, it is legally envisaged, or it is necessary for us to perform our services for you. Insofar as we process Data in third party countries in these exceptional cases, this is performed subject to specific measures (i.e. on the basis of the existence of an adequacy decision by the EU Commission or appropriate guarantees, Article 44 et seq. of the GDPR).

However, in the case of IP anonymisation being activated on this website, Google will first truncate your IP address within the member states of the European Union and in other countries party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. The full IP address will only be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and truncated 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 about website activities and to perform other services related to website and Internet usage services for the website operator. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be consolidated with other data from Google.

This website uses Google Analytics with the “AnonymizeIP()” function. IP addresses are truncated for further processing, thus precluding any linking to a particular individual. If a personal reference is included in the data collected about you, it will therefore be excluded directly and the personal data thus deleted immediately.

Use of Google Adwords and remarketing
We use Google Adwords services to draw attention to our attractive products on external websites with the help of advertising aids (so-called Google Adwords). These advertising media are delivered via so-called ad servers. Ad server cookies are used in the process to enable the evaluation of performance parameters (e.g. ad impressions, clicks or conversions). This lets us establish the extent to which individual advertising measures are successful. If you access our website via a Google ad, Google Adwords stores a cookie on your end device. This cookie stores the analysis values (unique cookie ID, number of ad impressions per placement (frequency), last impression, opt-out information (label that the user doesn’t wish to receive advertising any longer). Cookies set by Google Adwords usually expire after 30 days. They are not intended to identify you personally, but let Google Adwords recognise your Internet browser again. If you visit specific pages on the website of an Adwords customer, Google and the customer will identify that you have been forwarded to it by clicking an ad to the customer's website. As an Adwords customer, Google provides us with a statistical evaluation. Based on this evaluation we can measure the effectiveness of our advertising activities. We do not receive any further data, and in particular, we cannot identify you on the basis of the information. The legal basis for processing your data is Article 6, Paragraph 1, Sentence 1, Letter a and f of the GDPR.
The website also uses remarketing. Remarketing enables specific interest-based advertising across the Google Display Network based on previously accessed websites. Cookies are used to collect remarketing data. We and third-party providers, including Google use first-party cookies (e.g. Google Analytics cookies) in combination with third-party cookies (e.g. double click cookies) in order to orient, optimise and insert ads based on previous visits by a user to our website. Via the stored cookies, Google collects and evaluates your user behaviour when you access different websites. Konica Minolta advertising may therefore be displayed by Google or third-party providers, also on other websites. By its own admission, Google does not consolidate the data collected here with any personal data about you that may be stored by Google. In particular, Google draws attention to its use of pseudonymisation. If you do not wish to have advertising tailored to your interests displayed, you can deactivate cookies in your browser or notify Google of this for the future via the following link https://www.google.com/settings/ads/onweb/
