Thank you for your interest in our company and our website. Although we take great care to check their content, we cannot assume any liability for external links to other websites.

The protection of all personal information collected, processed or used during your visit to our website is important to us. Your data is protected in compliance with German laws, in line with the German Federal Data Protection Act (Bundesdatenschutzgesetz, “BDSG”) and all relevant regulations. Please see below for detailed information about how data is collected during your visit to our site and how this data is used.

1. Collecting and processing data
Each time you access our website or download a file from the site, a log is created. This data is stored for internal system-related and statistical purposes only.

The following items appear in the log:

  • Name of the file accessed
  • Date and time of access
  • Volume of data transferred
  • Status of successful transfer
  • Web browser and inquiring domain
  • IP addresses of the inquiring computer systems

More detailed personal data is recorded only if you provide us with it voluntarily – when filling in a form, for example.

2. Usage and forwarding of personal data
We will only use the personal information you have provided to respond to enquiries or for technical administration purposes. Any personal information that has been saved will be deleted if you revoke your permission for it to be stored, if the information is no longer necessary in order to fulfil the purpose it has been stored for, or if the information may no longer be stored due to legal reasons.

If you have confirmed whilst completing the contact form that you would like to receive information about innovations to our products, we will use your data exclusively for our own advertising purposes to send you direct advertising insofar as you have provided your permission by means of a declaration of consent via the confirmation e-mail sent to you. Third parties contracted by us to supervise and maintain our website are authorised by us to use the data exclusively for this purpose; they are expressly prohibited from using this data for their own purposes. If you do not consent to this, you can object to the usage of your data at any time. Either simply ignore the confirmation mail or inform us in writing (e.g. e-mail, letter, text message). You will find our contact information for declaring your objection in the legal notice section. You will, of course, also find an unsubscribe link in every e-mail about innovations and product information.

Your personal data will not be disclosed to third parties.

3. Right to access information
Upon written request, we would be happy to inform you about any information that has been stored in relation to your person.

Any personal information that has been saved will be deleted if you revoke your permission for it to be stored via mail (info@werner-mertz.com), if the information is no longer necessary in order to fulfil the purpose it has been stored for, or if the information may no longer be stored due to legal reasons.

Security notice:
We use all the technical and organisational means available to us in order to store your personal information in such a way that it cannot be accessed by third parties. When communicating via email, however, full security cannot be guaranteed. For this reason, we recommend using the conventional post system for the communication of confidential information.
