Data privacy notice

Welcome to our website. Thank you for your interest in our company. To assure you that your personal data is treated with care, we would like to clarify how your data is handled and explain the security measures that we take to protect it. We would also like to explain your legal rights in connection with the processing of this data.

Personal information

As a rule, we do not require any personal data from you when you visit our website. We merely record information about the name of your Internet service provider and the pages that you visit on our website. However, you as an Internet user remain anonymous since we only analyse this information for statistical purposes (e.g. number of views of individual web pages). Personal data is only collected when you volunteer this information when you order informational materials, for example. You can use alternative channels of communication (e.g. letter or fax).

Use and disclosure of personal information / stated purpose

Any personal information that we obtain from you when you visit our website will be collected, processed and used for the stated purpose only. This will happen only in accordance with applicable laws or with your consent.

The use of personal information can be contradicted at any time with effect for the future:

  • Written: MIWE Michael Wenz GmbH, Michael-Wenz-Straße 2-10, 97450 Arnstein, Germany
  • Phone: +49 9363-680

Right to request information

On request, we can also inform you in writing whether we have saved personal data about you, and if so, which data.

Security principles

We have taken technical and organisational measures to protect the data of our employees, customers and suppliers from accidental or intentional manipulation, loss, destruction or access by unauthorised parties. Security levels are constantly monitored in cooperation with security experts and adjusted for compliance with new security standards.

Cookies

Our website uses cookies in several places. Cookies make our web presence more user-friendly, effective and secure. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer and saved by your browser (locally on your hard drive).
They allow us to analyse how users use our website. By doing this, we can design our website content to meet the needs of visitors. Cookies also allow us to measure the effectiveness of a certain advert so that ads can be delivered to users based on their interests. We primarily use so-called session cookies. This type of cookie is deleted as soon as you leave the website. Most web browsers accept cookies automatically. You can usually change your browser's settings if you would rather not send this information. You can still use all the features on our website without restrictions (exception: configurators).

Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service by Google Inc. ("Google"). Google Analytics uses cookies, which are text files that are stored on your computer and allow your behaviour on the site to be analysed. The information that a cookie stores about your behaviour on the site is usually sent to a Google server in the US and stored there.

However, if you enable IP anonymisation on this website, your IP address will first be truncated by Google within the Member States of the European Union or other countries subject to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases is the complete IP address transmitted to a Google server in the US and truncated there. IP anonymisation is enabled on this website. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to analyse your behaviour on the site to compile reports on website activity and provide the website operator with other services related to usage of the website and the Internet.

The IP address transmitted from your browser by Google Analytics will not be combined with other Google data. You may prevent cookies from being saved by selecting the appropriate settings in your browser software. However, if you do this, you will not be able to use all the features of this website. You can also prevent Google from tracking the data generated by the cookie about your behaviour on the website (including your IP address) and also prevent Google from processing this data by installing the browser plug-in available here: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de.

As an alternative to the browser add-on, or if you are using a mobile device, click here to prevent tracking by Google Analytics on this website in the future (the opt-out feature only works in this browser and only for this domain). When you do this, an opt-out cookie is stored on your device. If you delete your cookies in this browser, you must click on this link again.
