Protecting your personal data is of great importance for Kuehne + Nagel (AG & Co.) KG (hereinafter referred to as “Kuehne + Nagel”). Your trust is a top priority for us. That is why we always treat your personal data confidentially and in line with the statutory data protection regulations and this Privacy Policy.

You can visit our websites without previously having to provide information about who you are. If personal data is collected on our sites (e.g. your name or date of birth), this is voluntary as far as possible.

This Privacy Policy provides details on how Kuehne + Nagel deals with personal data in the Internet, which information on visitors is collected and evaluated by Kuehne + Nagel websites and how this information is used, passed on or otherwise processed. In addition, we describe how cookies and other technologies in our SaaS offerings (Software as a Service) can be used.

This Privacy Policy applies to Kuehne + Nagel websites that make reference to this Privacy Policy. It does not apply to Kuehne + Nagel websites for which separate privacy policies apply. This Privacy Policy also does not apply if Kuehne + Nagel only processes data on behalf of customers.

Access data/server log files
When you visit our websites, we automatically save information that is provided by the Internet protocol for the log files. This includes the following data:

  • browser type/browser version
  • operating system used
  • host name of accessing computer
  • time of server enquiry
  • your IP address

The IP address can generally only be allocated to you with the aid of the access providers and involving high effort during legal proceedings. We would only take this step if we are forced to do so as a result of legal intervention by third parties or if there is reason to believe that your enquiry served to disrupt or manipulate our website or our server.

We use cookies. These are small text files that are stored on your computer and also saved by your browser. They do not do any damage to your computer and do not contain any viruses, but only serve to make your Internet experience more user-friendly, effective and secure.

The cookies we use most frequently are so-called “session cookies”. These are deleted automatically at the end of your visit. Other cookies remain stored on your end device until you delete them. These cookies allow us to recognise your browser during your next visit.

You can configure your browser so that you are informed when cookies are set and only allow this in individual cases. In addition, you can rule out accepting cookies in general or in certain cases, and you can also set your browser to automatically delete cookies when the browser is closed. However, this website’s functions may be restricted if cookies are deactivated.

Use of Google Analytics© and Google Tag Manager©
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses cookies, which are stored on your computer to help the website analyse how visitors use the site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of the website (including your IP address) will be transmitted to and stored by a Google server in the United States. If you have anonymised your IP address, however, the last octet of your IP address will be abbreviated/anonymised within the member states of the European Union or other member states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area prior to transmission. Your full IP address will only be transmitted to a Google server in the United States in exceptional cases and abbreviated there. Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity for website operators and providing website operators with other services relating to website activity and internet usage.
You can prevent the storage of data relating to your use of the website and created via the cookie (including your IP address) by Google as well as the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available at the following link:

This website also uses Google Tag Manager. This service allows website tags to be managed via an interface. Tags are small elements of code that are used, for example, to measure traffic and visitor behaviour. Google Tag Manager only implements tags. This means that no cookies are used and, as a result, no personal data is recorded. Google Tag Manager initiates other tags which, in turn, may record data. However, Google Tag Manager does not access this data. If deactivation has been performed at a domain or cookie level, this remains in place for all tracking tags if these are implemented with Google Tag Manager.

This Internet site uses Quantcast services to measure traffic and for advertising purposes. As part of these services, the website allows Quantcast to collect and analyse anonymous browser data using standard Internet cookies.
