BRENNTAG ON THE TOPIC OF DATA PROTECTION
We are very concerned about the safety of personal data such as name, address, phone number or e-mail. Our web activities are thus governed by the laws on data protection and data security. In the following we will explain just what information we collect if necessary and how we handle this.
1. PERSONAL DATA
In principle, the protection of your personal data takes top priority for BRENNTAG. This is why we do not collect any personal data through our website without your consent. You alone decide whether you want to give us this data or not, for example during registration, in a survey, etc. We generally use your personal date to answer your enquiry, process your order or give you access to special information or offers. In the interests of customer relations, it may furthermore be necessary to save and edit your personal data and, e.g., pass it on to our group companies to better deal with your wishes or improve our products and services. We (or third parties on our behalf) may also use this data to inform you of BRENNTAG offers which may be useful for your business, or to carry out online surveys through which we can better meet your requirements. Data that is not needed will be deleted immediately. Naturally, we will also respect your wish not to use your personal data to assist our customer relations - particularly for direct marketing or market research. We will neither sell your personal data to third parties nor distribute this in any other manner.
2. NON-PERSONAL DATA
When you access our websites, information is occasionally collected automatically (i.e. not through a registration), whereby this information cannot be assigned to a specific person (e.g. Internet browser and operating system used; domain name of the Website from where you arrived; number of visits, average dwell time, pages called up). We and our group companies use this information to determine the attractiveness of our websites and improve their contents.
