Sending of messages

Should you send us an e-mail, we use your message and your e-mail address solely in order to correspond with you. We store the contact data you provide in these cases in order to process your enquiry, and delete them once the matter has been resolved. These data are not communicated to third parties without your consent. 

Data security

This website uses SSL encryption for security reasons and to provide secure transmission of confidential content. An encrypted connection is indicated by “https://” and the padlock symbol in the address line of your browser. SSL encryption prevents third parties from reading the data that you transmit to us.

The information you provide is stored on particularly secure servers in Germany. It is accessible only to a small number of persons with special authorization who have the task of maintaining the servers. We have concluded a job-processing contract with our server hosting provider.

As a rule, we use your personal information only within KAN itself. We do not pass your data on to third parties without your explicit consent.

Duration for which personal data are stored

The length of time for which personal data may be stored is the relevant statutory retention period. The data concerned are routinely deleted at the end of this period, unless they continue to be required for the negotiation or completion of contracts.
