Privacy policy

The HWA AG is well aware that the protection of your privacy while using our website is important to you. We take the protection of your personal data very seriously. We therefore would like you to know when we store what data of yours and how we use it. We would therefore like to inform you of our data protection measures through this privacy policy.

Data capture
As a fundamental rule, you can use our online presentation without disclosing your personal data. Accessing our website will cause data to be saved on our servers for security purposes, such as the name of your internet service provider, the website from which you have accessed us, our websites that you have accessed and your IP-address. This data could possibly permit identification, however there is no person-related utilisation in this regard, although it can be evaluated for statistical purposes. However, the individual users remain anonymous when this is done. In cases when personal data is provided to external service providers, we ensure through technical and organizational means that the applicable data security regulations are observed.

Collection and processing of personal data
We collect personal data only when you provide it to us, e.g. through a registration, by filling up forms or by sending emails.

The database and its contents remain within our organisation, our provider and our website service provider. Your personal data will not be made available in any form to third parties by us or persons commissioned by us, unless you have agreed to it, or a legal directive for that exists.

Intended use
Your personal data that we collect will only be used for the purpose of supplying you with the requested products or services or for other purposes for which you have given your consent, except where otherwise provided for by law.

Access and rectification rights
You have the right to review and correct any of your personal data stored in our system if you believe it may be out of date or incorrect. Sending an email to the email address stated in the imprint section shall suffice for this.

Right to revocation
You have the right to revoke, at any time, your consent to the use of your personal data in the future. Sending an email to the email address stated in the imprint section shall suffice for this.

Data retention
We only retain personal data for as long as is necessary for us to render a service you have requested or to which you have given your consent, except where otherwise provided for by law e.g. in the case of pending litigation.

Use of cookies
So-called cookies are used in some areas of the website in order to be able to provide a more customised service to you. Cookies are identifiers, which a web server can send to your computer so as to identify it for the duration of your visit. Most web browsers are set in such a way that cookies are automatically accepted. However, you can also deactivate the storage of cookies or set your browser to notify you when cookies are being placed.

HWA AG uses technical and organizational security measures to protect your data provided to us against accidental or deliberate manipulation, loss, destruction or access by unauthorized persons. Our security measures are improved on an on-going basis, in accordance with the developments in technology.

If you have any problems, questions or suggestions, please contact our company directly. The continuous development of the internet makes it necessary for us to modify our privacy policy from time to time. We reserve the right to make relevant changes at any time.
