Cookies and server log files

The internet pages of the KRAH Elektronische Bauelemente GmbH use cookies. Cookies are text files which are stored and saved via an Internet browser on a computer system.
The use of cookies makes it possible for the visited websites and servers to distinguish the individual browser of the person concerned from others.
By using cookies, KRAH Elektronische Bauelemente GmbH can increase the user-friendliness of this website and provide services that would not be possible without cookies. For example, the user of a Web page that uses cookies does not have to re-enter his or her access data each time the website is visited, because this is taken over from the Internet site and the cookie stored on the user's computer system.
By changing the settings of the respective Internet browser, the setting of cookies for all internet pages can be prevented. Cookies that have already been set can be deleted again. This is possible in all popular Internet browsers, but in some cases the function of the Internet site is restricted.
For technical reasons, so-called server log files are also created. In these files, the hosting provider stores technical data (e.g. browser type and browser version, used operating system, time of request, IP address, etc.) that the browser automatically transmits to it. It does not merge this data with other data, so it is not possible to refer to a person.

Purpose of data collection and, if necessary, transmission of data

We only collect personal data if you provide it to us, for example, in the context of a request. Data is entered in the following areas:


The contact form offers interested parties the possibility to send inquiries directly to KRAH Elektronische Bauelemente GmbH. The website also contains information on legal requirements (e.g. in the imprint), which enable a fast electronic contact to our company (e.g. via e-mail address). If a person receives the contact by e-mail or via a contact form, the personal data transmitted by the person will be automatically saved. Data transmitted during this contact is stored for the purpose of processing or contacting the person concerned. In most cases, the mail sent will be delivered to the general mailboxes of the departments. Unless required for the processing purpose, this personal data will not be passed on to third parties outside the group companies.
If you contact our trading partners via your own e-mail service, they will process your data (depending on the registered office also in countries outside the EU). KRAH Elektronische Bauelemente GmbH is no longer responsible for this processing.

The contact form on the page "become a supplier" offers interested parties the opportunity to send enquiries directly to KRAH Elektronische Bauelemente GmbH.
