ESSMANN on data protection
We take the protection of personal data very seriously, which is why our activities comply with applicable laws governing the protection of personal details and data security. Read on to discover which information we may collect, how we handle such information and to whom we might provide it.

Personal data
Our web sites do not record any personal data at all (e.g. name, address, telephone number or e-mail address) unless you voluntarily provide such information (e.g. by registering, when you order a catalogue) or have given your consent or we are permitted to do so by laws governing the protection of your privacy.

Communication or usage-related data
When you use telecommunication services to access our web sites, the communication data (e.g. Internet Protocol address) and/or usage-related data (e.g. information about when you started to use the sites, how long you used them for and the telecommunication services you use) are generated automatically by technical systems. This may allow inferences to be drawn in terms of personal data. Data protection laws govern any necessary registration, processing and utilisation of your communication and usage-related data.

Automatic registration of non-personal data
Sometimes when you access our web sites (without registration), information that is not assigned to any specific individual is collected automatically (e.g. the Internet browser and operating system used, domain name of the previously visited web site, number of hits, average time spent on the web site, pages viewed). This information is used by us and by our subsidiary companies to determine the appeal of our web sites and to improve the performance capabilities and content of the same.

Cookies - Information that is stored on your computer automatically
When you visit our web sites, we may store information on your computer in the form of a \"cookie\" in order to enable us to recognise you automatically on your next visit. Cookies enable us, for example, to match our web site content to your interests or to store your password so that you do not have to re-enter it each time. If you do not want us to recognise your computer, please adjust your browser settings to ensure that cookies are deleted from your hard drive, all cookies are blocked or you are warned before a cookie is stored.

ESSMANN will not knowingly collect personal data relating to children without explicitly giving notification that such details should only be provided with parental consent, if stipulated by applicable laws. We will only ever utilise or forward personal data relating to children to the extent permitted by law, in order to obtain legally stipulated parental consent or to protect children. In this respect, the term \"child/children\" is used in line with nationally applicable legal provisions and cultural customs.

ESSMANN implements technical and organisational security measures to protect your personal data being unintentionally or illegally deleted, amended or lost and to secure it against being passed on to third parties or accessed without authorisation.
