Anonymous recording of data
You may access any of Viega’s non-personalized web pages without having to tell us who you are. We are only collecting data such as the name of your Internet service provider (your IP address), the web page that you visited immediately beforehand, the date and time of your visit, and which of our web pages you viewed. This information is evaluated for statistical purposes. As an individual user, you remain anonymous during this evaluation.
Personal data is information that concerns your person. This includes information such as your name, address, correspondence address, or telephone number. It does not include information that cannot be associated directly with your true identity (such as the duration of your visit to our website or the number of users of the website). Viega records personal data only if you have communicated it yourself, for example, by completing a registration form or by registering for personalized services. The data you enter on such a form is stored only for the purpose concerned. Under no circumstances will your data be communicated to third parties.
From time to time, Viega may offer contests that require personal information for entry. This information will be used to notify the winners and to ship their prizes. Additionally, Viega may choose to send promotional information as a result of the contest entry. Participants will have the option to opt out of receiving this information in the contest entry form. At any time, participants may choose to opt out of promotional mailings by contacting Viega’s webmaster at [email protected]
You have the right to object to the use of your data at any time. To exercise this right, simply contact our webmaster by mail or email, and we will block your data, preventing further processing. In addition, you are entitled, under certain circumstances, to have any data concerning you that we have stored corrected, blocked from use or deleted. You are entitled, at any time, to obtain details of what data concerning you we have stored and the purpose for which it was stored.
We are happy to provide you with information on our products. For us to use your email address for this purpose, you must grant us your explicit personal consent on the form concerned. You may, of course, revoke this consent at any time. Please contact our webmaster by mail or email in this case.

This data record is created by the webserver with which you have established a connection through your web browser (e.g., Internet Explorer, Netscape Navigator) and sent to you. The cookie enables you to be recognized when you next visit the website without having to reenter data that you entered on the previous occasion. The majority of browsers are currently configured by default to accept cookies automatically. You can, however, configure your browser to reject cookies, or to display them to you before you accept them. You can also delete cookies from your system at any time.
