3. Data collection on our website


The internet pages partly use so-called cookies. Cookies do not harm your computer and do not contain viruses. Cookies serve to make our offer more user-friendly, effective and secure. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer and stored by your browser.

Most of the cookies we use are so-called “session cookies”. They are automatically deleted after your visit. Other cookies remain stored on your device until you delete them. These cookies allow us to recognize your browser the next time you visit.

You can set your browser so that you are informed about the setting of cookies and allow cookies only in individual cases, the acceptance of cookies for certain cases or generally exclude and enable the automatic deletion of cookies when closing the browser. Disabling cookies may limit the functionality of this website.

Cookies that are required to carry out the electronic communication process or to provide certain functions that you wish to use (eg shopping cart function) are processed on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO saved. The website operator has a legitimate interest in the storage of cookies for the technically error-free and optimized provision of its services. Insofar as other cookies (such as cookies for analyzing your surfing behavior) are stored, they will be treated separately in this privacy policy.

Storage of access data and server log files

Every time a user accesses a page from our website and every time a file is called up, data about this process is automatically saved to a log file on our web server and processed. Specifically, the following data is stored for each access or retrieval:

– IP address of the requesting computer
– Date and time of the request
– called page / name of the retrieved file
– transferred amount of data
– Message if the access / retrieval was successful
– Internet address from which the page or file was retrieved or the desired function was initiated
– used web browser

The aforementioned data, including the IP address, will be stored for the duration of the communication process in order to enable the use of our internet service. In addition, the IP address is stored for a short period of time to ensure IT security, in particular to protect our IT systems against misuse and to ward off attacks. We reserve the right to evaluate the data anonymously for statistical purposes and to improve our internet presence.

A merge of this data with other data sources will not be done.

The basis for data processing is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DSGVO, which allows the processing of data to fulfill a contract or pre-contractual measures.


You have the possibility to contact us via our e-mail address or the contact form. Of course, we will only use the personal data transmitted to us for the purpose for which you provide us with these when contacting us.

If you send us inquiries via the contact form, your details from the inquiry form, including the contact details you provided there, will be stored in order to process the request and in case of follow-up questions. We will not share this information without your consent.

The processing of the data entered into the contact form is therefore exclusively based on your consent (Art. 6 (1) lit. DSGVO). You can revoke this consent at any time. An informal message by e-mail to us is sufficient. The legality of the data processing operations carried out until the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.

The information you provide in the contact form will remain with us until you ask us to delete it, revoke your consent to storage or delete the purpose for data storage (for example, after your request has been processed). Mandatory statutory provisions – especially retention periods – remain unaffected.


You have the opportunity to apply via our e-mail address at Karl Kruse. Your online application will be forwarded directly to the HR department and of course treated confidentially. Of course, we will only use your information to process your application and will not pass it on to third parties. Your personal data will be deleted immediately after completing the application process, or after a maximum of 6 months, unless you have given us expressly your consent for a longer storage of your data.

If you apply via e-mail, we explicitly point out that e-mail attachments are not encrypted.

Collection and processing of personal data

Personal data is only collected if you provide it on your own, for example to carry out an order, a survey, a competition or a registration for personalized services. There you will be informed about the intended processing purpose and, if necessary, your consent to storage.

In the case of press distributors, information about the press organization that you are working for is necessary so that we know that a press organ is actually being supplied.
