Privacy – Protection of Privacy

The www.kd-group.com server (our server) automatically assigns an anonymous unique code to each visitor. The web browser you use saves it, and sends it back to our server every time you revisit one of the pages on our server. These kinds of data exchanges between servers and users are called cookies.

In addition to the unique code, our server also downloads the exact time, address of the requested page, address of the previous page, codes of advertisements shown on the page, web browser used by the visitor, and the IP number that sent the request to display the page. The collected data is gathered and stored for the purposes described under Why Do We Use Cookies? for the entire time this website is active.

For all registered usernames our server stores the data provided at registration (username, password, email address) as well as the settings for that username. Such data is stored for an indefinite period of time. The stored data does not refer to a specific legal or natural person but only to the unique code and username, and it is technically impossible to identify any specific natural person accessing the website at any given moment.

The Companies do not forward this data to third parties in any form that would reveal the number of visits by a particular user and their data (email), but merely as a sum – e.g. as the total number of views and clicks of the advertisements, which can be passed to advertisers, or as cumulative numbers of server visits, which can be made public.

Why Do We Use Cookies?

Cookies are used to track the frequency and manner of the use of our server. This means that we regularly analyse the number of visits to individual sites on our server, and the patterns and frequencies of passing from one page to another, in order to establish the visitors’ interest in specific content. We use this information as a guideline in further developing our web content. Our analytics do not monitor what individual users do but focus on the aggregate numbers for the entire user group (e.g.: how many users read a particular release today; how many users read another release after having read the first one.)

Our advertisers have the right to access data on the daily number of views and clicks on their adverts, all given as sum total numbers.

The option to check the movements of an individual user (not the person, because the person is always unknown; but rather the individual code linked to the received cookie) on our server is used only exceptionally in the rare situations when the user experiences difficulties – e.g. problems with accessing certain content, messages reporting supposed errors, etc. – or in the extremely rare events of suspected attacks on or attempted intrusions into our server.

What Do Cookies Not Do

Cookies sent or received by our server:
  • Do not transmit data from your computer to any server other than back to the sender;
  • Do not transmit any data to our server apart from the data that the server itself had sent to the user and is returned upon every visit (unique code);
  • Do not contain your name, address…;
  • Cannot infect your computer with a virus or harm it in any other way;
  • Do not enable the Companies to find out what you do on the Internet or outside of it apart from providing server visit analytics;
  • Do not enable us to learn your personal data unless you have already shared it with us.
If you disable cookies in your browser, you will still be able to use most of the content on our server.

Deleting Data

Should you not want our server to store your data – data that you yourself entered –, you can demand anytime to have it deleted.

The operation will be performed as soon as the identity of the person demanding the deletion of their data has been verified.

The deletion of your data may lead to your orders or login being unsuccessful.

Use of Transmitted Data by the User

The web server, which has protective software installed, also collects certain data that you provide voluntarily in surveys via separate connections, relating to the purpose/category of transmitted data. We commit to protect, in accordance with the applicable legislation, the confidentiality of all personal data obtained on the basis of users' explicit approvals. The collected personal data will be used exclusively for the purpose for which it was acquired.
