Privacy & Cookie

Scope of application
This privacy policy provides you as a user with information about the type, scope and purpose of the collection and use of your data by Wiler Filz AG and integrated data processors (providers).

Collection of general information
Each time our website is accessed, information is automatically collected by us or the provider. This information, also known as server log files, is of a general nature and does not allow any conclusions to be drawn about your person.

The information collected includes Name of the website displayed, file, date, data volume, web browser and web browser version, operating system, the domain name of your Internet provider, the so-called referrer URL (the page from which you accessed our website) and the stored IP address.

Without this data, it would not be technically possible in some cases to deliver and display the content of the website. In this respect, the collection of data is absolutely necessary. We also use the anonymous information for statistical purposes. It helps us to optimize our offering and technology.

How we handle personal data
Definition: Personal data is any information that can be used to uniquely identify a person. It is therefore data that can be traced back to a person. This personal data includes the first name and surname, telephone number and email address. Personal data also includes information on websites that have been accessed. This data is only collected and used if you confirm this by giving your consent, for example in email correspondence or on a website.

Registration on our website
If you register on our website or an event service used by us in order to make use of personalized services, personal data will be collected. This includes your name, address, telephone number and email address as a means of contact and communication.

Registration enables access to services and content that are only available to registered users. On request, we will inform you which personal data has been collected and stored. In addition, we will correct or delete the data on request, provided that your request does not conflict with any statutory retention obligations. If you have any questions or wish to correct or delete your data, please use the contact details given above in this privacy policy.

To ensure the security of your data during transmission, we work with encryption methods (such as SSL) via HTTPS, which reflect the current state of the art.

Comment function
If comments or other contributions are written and published on our website, we store the IP address, the user name and the time of creation. This data is collected for security reasons, as we can be prosecuted for illegal content (prohibited propaganda, insults, etc.). In such a case, the information is used to determine the identity of the author.

Newsletter & e-mail notification
If you register for our newsletter or an e-mail notification, we will use the data you enter exclusively for this purpose or to inform you of the circumstances relevant to this service or registration. We do not pass this data on to third parties.

A valid e-mail address is required to receive the newsletter. We also store the IP address you use to register for the newsletter and the date on which you order the newsletter. This data serves as proof in the event of misuse if a third-party e-mail address is registered for the newsletter. In addition, to ensure that an e-mail address is not misused by third parties in our mailing list, we work with the so-called "double opt-in" procedure in accordance with the law. As part of this procedure, the newsletter order, the sending of the confirmation email and the receipt of the registration confirmation are logged.

You have the option to revoke your consent to the storage of data, your e-mail address and its use for sending the newsletter at any time. We provide you with a link in every newsletter to revoke your consent. You also have the option of informing us of your wish to withdraw your consent using the contact options listed above.

Contact form
If you contact us via the online form or by email, we will save the information you provide in order to answer your request and ask any follow-up questions.

Integration of third-party services and content
Our website sometimes includes content and services from other providers. This includes, for example, maps provided by Google Maps, videos from YouTube and graphics and images from other websites. In order for this data to be accessed and displayed in the user's browser, the transmission of the IP address is mandatory. The providers (hereinafter referred to as "third-party providers") therefore perceive the IP address of the respective user.

Even if we endeavor to only use third-party providers who only need the IP address to be able to deliver content, we have no influence on whether the IP address may be stored. In this case, this process is used for statistical purposes, among other things. If we are aware that the IP address is being stored, we will inform our users of this.

Use of Google Analytics
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc ("Google"). Google Analytics uses "cookies", which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyze how users use the site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. However, due to the activation of IP anonymization on these websites, your IP address will be shortened by Google beforehand within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and truncated there.

Facebook social plug-in
We integrate plug-ins from the social network Facebook (address: 1601 South California Avenue, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA) on our websites. You can recognize the plug-ins - an overview can be found here: - by the Like button (Like) or the Facebook logo.

If you visit one of our websites with a Facebook plug-in, a direct connection to Facebook is established. We have no influence on the type and scope of data that is collected, stored and processed by Facebook. We can only inform you to the best of our knowledge.

Facebook is informed via the plug-in that you have accessed the corresponding website of our offer. This also applies to users who are not registered with Facebook. In this case, there is a possibility that Facebook will store the IP address.

If you are a member of Facebook and logged in, accessing a website with a Facebook plug-in can be clearly assigned to your Facebook user account. In addition, the plug-ins transmit all interactions, for example when you use the Like button or leave a comment.

To prevent Facebook from storing data about you, please log out of Facebook before visiting our websites. You can also block the plug-ins with add-ons for your browser (e.g. "Facebook Blocker").

Google+ social plug-in
We integrate the social plug-in from Google+ (Google plus) on our websites, recognizable by the "+1" sign on a white or colored background. The plug-in is provided by Google Inc (Google for short, address: 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA).

When a website with a Google+ button is accessed, a connection to Google's servers is established. Google transmits the content of the button and integrates it into the corresponding website. At the same time, Google receives information about which page has just been accessed. According to Google, personal data is only collected when the Google+ button is clicked. For members of Google+ who are logged in, the following applies: Even without interaction, Google stores and processes at least the IP address. We have no influence on the scope of the data that is stored in this context.

Google+ users who are logged into their account can recommend our websites by clicking on the "+1" button. In this case, Google stores not only the IP address and the browser, but also the content for which the +1 was given and the page. This information is stored in the user's profile and can be displayed together with the user's profile name and image in Google services, including search results. Google uses the data to optimize its own services, among other things. You can find information on Google's privacy policy and the settings options for protecting your privacy here: .

Google Plus members who do not want their data to be collected and stored via our websites should log out of their Google+ account before visiting our website.

This website uses functions of the LinkedIn service, recognizable by the "in" sign on a white background. The plug-in is provided by LinkedIn Corporation (LinkedIn for short, address: 1000 W. Maude Avenue, Sunnyvale, CA 94085, USA).
