König Privacy Policy

At König we believe that, as our online visitor, you have a right to know our practices regarding the information we collect when you visit our websites, and what type of information is collected. This website, including any sub site accessible through the homepage (the "Site"), is published and maintained by subsidiaries, affiliates, and/or related entities of König.

The internet rapidly changes the way we interact and communicate. Internet and new online activities also bring many new challenges, such as the privacy issues which this privacy policy is about. A relationship with you on the basis of good faith is not only a matter of good manners, but also of good business. Please note that when you enter any sub site accessible through this homepage or the shopping page, such sub site may have its own terms and conditions of use which are specific to such sub site. When you access, browse, or use this Site you accept, without limitation or qualification, the terms and conditions set forth below and any additional terms and conditions of use set forth in any sub site.

While König does not generally require that you provide us with personally identifiable information in order to visit and use the König websites, please note that in order to participate in some activities, it will be necessary for you to provide this information. If you choose not to provide it for those activities, you may not be able to participate in them.

What data does König register and what happens with that information?

Personal Data
If you ask a question to König, then you make certain personal information available to us. Depending on the question you asked us your personal data are recorded and processed for:

  • direct marketing, sending or delivery of the publications that relate to König;
  • market research;
  • sending oral, written and electronic messages.

Your personal data and of others are used in the context of a good business policy and will not be kept longer than is necessary. For the optimization of its business, König can give access to third parties of your personal data, for example, a service provider that König co-operates with when you run your question. In such cases, permission for using these data is limited to the defined purpose.

Log files
The web servers of König only log errors (for example, requests for non-existing pages). König uses this information for tracking and troubleshooting the connection, the planning of network capacity, configuring the platform and preventing and identifying abuse.

When protecting your data, we will behave with the utmost care. Yet we can be considered, on the orders of judicial proceedings in accordance with legal obligations, to provide the data. König will release data when it is legally required, or in case of urgent and important reasons, to the extent that the privacy of the end user is not disproportionately harmed.

When you surf on the internet, perhaps without you being aware of it, administrators of internet pages are able to collect certain information about you, such as your IP address and the internet browser you are using. König keeps no identifiable personal information about your browsing behavior on the web. However, we use this information in anonymous and aggregate form in order to be able to enumerate and analyze how and to what extent the various services are used to give you a more customized online service.
König will continue to capture any information that you give to websites other than the sites that are managed by König. Please be aware that König's privacy policy does not apply to websites that are not affiliated with König. For visiting these sites, you are dependent on the privacy policy of that website.

Phishing e-mails

König would like to emphasize that these are not e-mails from König, but from third parties who often are up to no good. König will never ask questions by e-mail regarding logins or passwords.

Notice To/Regarding Children Under the Age of 13
If you are under 13 years of age, you should not provide any personally identifiable information (for example, your last name, home address or e-mail address) on these sites without the knowledge and permission of your parent or guardian. If König learns that you are under 13 years of age, König will not maintain or use any personally identifiable information about you without the verifiable consent of your parent or guardian, except as allowed by law. This may mean that you will be unable to participate in some activities on the sites without that verifiable consent.

König believes that children using the Internet require special protection, and we urge parents or guardians to explain Internet safety to their children. Parents are urged to spend time online with their children to become familiar with the types of content available on the König websites and the Internet in general. Control tools are available from online services and software manufacturers to help create a safer environment for children.

If a child under 13 years of age wishes to participate in any König website activity, or wishes to take advantage of a product or service offering, available to children, and to do so necessitates the furnishing of any of the child's personal information, please note the following:

(i) Before any collection of a child's personal information takes place at a website directed to children or where König is knowingly collecting children's personal information, the child will be asked to provide his/her parent's or guardian's e-mail address. König will then send an e-mail (the "Initial Notification") to the parent/guardian indicating, among other things, the information that the child is requested to provide; the intended use(s) of the information; and information on how the parent/guardian can, at their election, delete the child's information from KÖNIG's database or records. Upon receipt of the Initial Notification, a parent or guardian may respond back to König to grant his/her consent or to deny consent, in which case König will delete the parent or guardian's e-mail address. Upon König's receipt of the parent/guardian consent, König will send a confirming e-mail to the parent/guardian's e-mail address.

(ii) The e-mail address of the operator collecting or maintaining personal information from children through this website is:

(iii) The types of personal information collected from children may include the name, e-mail address, home address, telephone number, and/or any other information reasonably necessary for the child to participate in a particular activity. This information may be collected directly and/or passively (e.g., through a web server that automatically recognizes and stores information, such as a visitor's IP address/domain name combination)

(iv) The information collected may be used for purposes such as fulfillment of a requested transaction, record keeping, marketing back to the child, or making it publicly available through a chatroom or by other means

(v) Unless specific consent is obtained from the child's parent or guardian, the child's personal information will not be disclosed to third parties who are not contractors hired to carry out the internal operations of the websites, other than as may be required by law. We have required, or will require, such contractors to agree to use personal information of website visitors only for the purposes of carrying out these operations and to keep such information confidential. A parent or guardian has the option of consenting to the collection and use of the child's personal information without consenting to the disclosure of that information to third parties.

(vi) König is prohibited from conditioning a child's participation in an activity on the child's disclosing more personal information than is reasonably necessary to participate in such activity.

(vii) A parent can review and have deleted the child's personal information, can refuse to permit further collection or use of the child's information, and can revoke or limit consents previously given. For instructions on how to do so, please send an e-mail to:

(viii) If König desires to use a child's information for purposes other than that for which the parent/guardian consent was previously given, König will not do so without first getting the parent/guardian consent.
