Privacy Statement

The data controllers for data processing on this website are:

For Switzerland:
kineo finance AG
Aeschengraben 20
CH-4051 Basel

For Germany:
kineo finance GmbH
(Managing Director: Dimitrios Dimitrakopoulos)
Ludwigstraße 8
D-80539 München

The data controller decides alone or together with others on the purposes and means of processing personal data (e.g. names, contact data, etc.).

We process personal data that we receive from our interested parties and customers within the purpose of our business relationship. Additionally, we process personal data which we have obtained from publicly accessible sources (e.g. press, media, Internet, commercial register) or which we are permitted to process (e.g. to execute orders, to fulfil orders) from other third parties (e.g. Creditreform).

Data and Sources

If you contact us (e.g. by e-mail), we will process your details to process your request and in the event that follow-up questions arise. If you contact us or instruct us, name, address and contact data (telephone, e-mail address), industry and generally accessible information are collected and stored.

In addition, all information is collected which is necessary in the dealings and process with the respective interested party and for examination and fulfilment of a contract.

If the data processing is conducted to execute pre-contractual measures, which were requested by you or, if you are already our customer, to execute the contract, the legal basis for this data processing is Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 b) DSGVO.

We will only process any further personal data if you give your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 a) DSGVO) or if we have a legitimate interest in processing your data (Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 f) DSGVO). For example, there is a legitimate interest in replying to your e-mail.

Data transmitted during contact and data legitimately collected in the further course remain with us until you request deletion, revoke your consent to storage or until there is no longer any need for data storage. Mandatory statutory provisions - in particular retention periods - remain unaffected by this.

Disclosure of data to third parties

A transfer of your personal data to third parties (outside of kineo finance) does not take place in principle, unless you agree to the transfer. Exceptions to this only apply if this is necessary for the processing of contractual relationships with you. This includes in particular the passing on to service providers commissioned by us (so-called contract processors) or other third parties whose activities are necessary for the execution of the contract (e.g. manufacturers/suppliers, banks). The data passed on may be used by the third parties exclusively for the purposes mentioned.

Access data

We, the website operator or site provider, collect data on access to the website. on the basis of our reasonable interest (Art. 6 para. 1 f) DSGVO). The data is stored as "server log files" on the server of the website or the server/web account of the statistics programs. The following data is stored and evaluated in this way:

  • the browser type used and the browser version (if provided by the user)
  • used operating system
  • Date and time of access
  • the number of visits
  • the time spent on the website
  • Source/reference from which you came to the site (if provided by the user)
  • the IP-address of the user (which is anonymized before it is stored).

Only anonymous IP-addresses of visitors to the website are stored. It is not possible to create a personal reference.

The server log files and backups are stored for a maximum of 14 days (backups in encrypted form) and then deleted (exception: Apachelog log files are not deleted). The data is stored for security reasons, e.g. to clarify cases of misuse. If data has to be kept for reasons of proof, the data will be kept from the deletion until the incident is finally resolved.

Revocation of your consent to data processing

If we process your personal data on the basis of a legitimate interest, you have the right to object to such processing. If you wish to exercise your right of objection, you only need to notify us in writing. You are welcome to contact us or send us an e-mail.

Right to data transferability

You may request that we provide you with the personal data you have provided to us in a structured, common and machine-readable format. Alternatively, you can request the direct transmission of the personal data you have provided to us to another person in charge, as far as this is possible.

Right to information, correction, blocking, deletion

You have the right to free information about your stored personal data, the origin of the data, its recipients and the purpose of data processing and, if necessary, a right to correction, blocking or deletion of this data at any time within the scope of the applicable legal provisions. In this regard and also for further questions on the subject of personal data, you can contact us at any time via the contact options listed in the imprint.

Right of appeal to the relevant supervisory authority

As the person concerned, you have a right of appeal to the responsible supervisory authority in the event of a breach of data protection law. The responsible supervisory authority for data protection issues in Germany is the data protection officer of the federal state in which kineo finance GmbH has its registered office.
