These data are not allocable to individuals and not combined with other sources. The stored data is used exclusively for statistical purposes.
Collection of personal information
Personal information is collected only when users provide this information themselves, for example in the course of registration, when completing forms or when ordering information material. W-FILTER uses this information to respond to enquiries or requests and to provide users with information on the company's products, services or offerings in general. Personal information is not made available to or shared with third parties, either for commercial nor non-commercial purposes.
Users have the right to receive free of charge information about the personal information stored about them on request. They are also entitled by law to have their personal information corrected, locked, or deleted.
W-FILTER uses appropriate state-of-the-art technical security policies and procedures to protect the data and information provided from unintentional or intentional manipulation, loss, damage or unauthorised access. When personal information is collected and processed, the information is encrypted for data transmission.
Cookies are small text files which are transferred along with the actual requested data from the internet to your computer. This data is saved there and kept ready for later recall. In particular, in the context of your registration, cookies are needed as we use them to ensure user-friendliness during the authorization process and for access control. Most browsers accept cookies automatically. However, you can deactivate the storing of cookies or adjust your browser, so that it notifies you whenever a cookie is set.
In order to adapt our website to our users’ requirements, Google Analytics Tracking Codes are installed in several patches. User behavior data collected and saved via these codes are saved without reference to the identity of the user; we do not merge the data with personal data.
