Data protection notes


The offer under the URL www.meierguss is a joint appearance of the companies of the MEIERGUSS │GROUP.

The MEIERGUSS │GROUP takes the protection of your personal data very seriously and strictly observes the rules of the data protection laws.

Under no circumstances will personal data be sold or passed on to third parties for any other reasons.

The following declaration provides you with an overview of how we ensure this protection and of what type of data is recorded for what purpose.


1. When and for what purpose are personal data recorded?

We record, store or process personal data only in pursuit of our own business purposes.

Processing and use of the data for other purposes will only be carried out if you give us your express consent.


2. Recording of general information

When you access our websites, information of a general nature is recorded automatically. This information is:


• Browser type/version

• Operating system used

• Referrer URL (the previously visited site)

• Hostname of the accessing computer (IP address)

• Time of the server request


This involves only information which does not permit any conclusions to be drawn as to your person. In addition these data are generated when any other website on the Internet is accessed. This is therefore not a specific function of our website. Information of this kind is recorded only anonymously and evaluated by us for statistical purposes.


As far as personal data (for example name, address, telephone number or e-mail address) are recorded on our websites, this is always carried out on a voluntary basis. None of these data will be passed on to third parties without your express consent.


We would like to draw your attention to the fact that data transmission on the internet (e.g. in the case of communication by e-mail) can show security loopholes. Complete protection of the data from accessing by third parties is not possible.


3. Use of cookies


Cookies are small data sets which are sent from the web server to the user’s web browser and are stored there for later retrieval. Whether cookies may be collected you can determine yourself by setting your browser in such a way that you are informed before a cookie is stored and storage only takes place if you expressly accept this.


We use cookies only for the purpose of receiving information about the use of our website in order to optimize the use of our internet pages as well as for statistical purposes.


4. Handling your personal data


We endeavour to take all of the necessary technical and organisational security measures in order to store your personal data in such a way that they are protected from unauthorised access and abuse.


Our employees are obliged to observe the provisions of the German Data Protection Act when handling your data.


5. How long will the data remain stored?


We adhere to the basic principles of data reduction and data economy. We only store your personal data as long as necessary for achieving the purposes stated herein, or as long as the variety of retention periods provided for by the legislator envisage.


6. Your rights to information, correction, blockage, deletion and objection


You have the right to obtain information about any of your personal data stored at Heinrich Meier Eisengießerei GmbH & Co. KG at any time. You also have the right to correction, blockage or, apart from the data storage prescribed for business purposes, to deletion of your personal data. In this case, please contact Heinrich Meier Eisengießerei GmbH & Co. KG's data protection officer.


7. Changes to our data protection regulations


We reserve the right to occasionally adjust these data protection notes so that they comply with current legal requirements, or so that we can implement changes to the services we provide in the data protection notes, for example on the introduction of new services. The new data protection notes will then apply to your next visit.
