Viega takes the protection of personal data very seriously.
We wish you to be aware of what data we store and when, and
how we use these data. We have taken technical and
organizational measures to ensure that the regulations
governing data protection are observed.
Anonymous recording of data
You may access any of Viega's non-personalized web pages
without having to tell us who you are. We are only
collecting data like the name of your Internet service
provider (your IP address), the web page which you visited
immediately beforehand, the date and time of your visit, and
which of our web pages you view. This information is
evaluated for statistical purposes. As an individual user,
you remain anonymous during this evaluation.
Personal data is information which concerns your person.
This includes information such as your name, address,
correspondence address, telephone number. It does not
include information which cannot be associated directly with
your true identity (such as the duration of your visit to
our web site, or the number of users of the web site). Viega
records personal data only if you have communicated it
yourself, for example by completing a registration form or
by registering for personalized services. The data you enter
on such a form is stored only for the purpose concerned. For
instance, we require your full address in order to process
job applications. Under no circumstances your data would be
communicated to third parties.
You have the right to object to the use of your data at any
time. Simply contact our webmaster by mail or e-mail, and we
will block your data, preventing further processing. In
addition, you are entitled under certain circumstances to
have any data concerning you which we have stored corrected,
blocked from use or deleted. You are entitled at any time to
obtain details of what data concerning you we have stored
and of the purpose for which it was stored.
We are happy to provide you with information on our products.
In order for us to use your e-mail address for this purpose,
you must grant us your explicit personal consent on the form
concerned. You may, of course, revoke this consent again at
any time. Please contact our webmaster by mail or e-mail in
Our pages employ cookies. A cookie is a small data record
which can be stored on your hard drive. This data record is
created by the webserver with which you have established a
connection through your webb rowser (e.g. Internet Explorer,
Netscape Navigator), and sent to you. The cookie enables you
to be recognized when you next visit the website without
having to re-enter data which you entered on the previous
occasion. The majority of browsers are currently configured
by default to accept cookies automatically. You can, however,
configure your browser to reject cookies, or to display them
to you before you accept them. You can also delete cookies
from your system at any time. Please consult the Help
function for your operating system in this case.
Links to other web sites
Our online service includes links to other web sites. We
have no influence over whether the operators of these sites
observe the provisions of the Federal Data Protection Act.
We also have no influence over the legality of the content
of such websites. We can therefore accept no responsibility
whatsoever for the content of other websites.
