Privacy Policy

HEINZ-GLAS takes the protection of personal data very seriously. We want you to know when we store which data and how we use it. As a company under private law, we are subject to the provisions of German law concerning data protection (BDSG). We have taken technical and organizational measures to ensure that the provisions of data protection are observed both by ourselves and external service suppliers.

Personal Data

Personal data refer to information, which can be used to learn your identity. This includes information such as your correct name, address, postal address and telephone number. Information, which cannot be linked to your real identity (e.g., favorite websites or the number of users of a site), are not covered by this. You can use our online offer on principle without disclosing your identity. When you use online forms of this website, we ask for your name and other personal information. You can decide freely whether you enter this information. We store your information on specially protected servers in Germany. Only a few specially authorized people, who are responsible for the technical and commercial support of the server, have access to it. In connection with your access, data are stored for security purposes, which might enable identification (e.g., IP address, date, and time and pages views). No person-related assessment is performed. The right to statistical assessment of anonymized data records is reserved.

Passing on personal information to a third party

In the case of product orders, we only use your personal information within our company and its affiliates. We do not pass on your data to third parties without your expressed consent. If data are passed on to service suppliers within the context of order data processing, this is only done with compliance with the BDSG, other legal provisions and contractually with our Privacy Policy. Insofar as we are obligated due to a court order, we shall communicate your data to offices authorized to receive this information.

Right to revocation

If you have provided us with personal data, you can delete them at any time. Data for invoicing and accounting purposes are not affected by a notice of termination or a deletion.
