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.
From time to time, Viega may offer contests that require personal information. This information will be used to notify the winners and to ship their prizes. Additionally, Viega may choose to send promotional information as a result of the contest entry. However, participants will have the option to opt out of receiving this information in the contest entry form. At any time participants may choose to opt out of promotional mailings by contacting Viega's Webmaster at firstname.lastname@example.org.
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 this case.
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.
