Privacy Policy

We, the BWT Aktiengesellschaft, are delighted that you want to visit our website. As we attach great importance to the protection of your personal data and privacy, we would like to explain, also from a legal standpoint, what information we collect and what measures are taken to protect your data. 


1. General


“Personal information” is data that, when submitted, is able to determine your identity or enables your identity to be determined. “Only indirectly personally identifiably information” is data by which clients, service providers or recipients of a communication cannot determine the identity of a specific individual using means that are permitted by law. “Non-personal information” is anonymised and cannot, under any circumstances, be attributed to specific individuals and is therefore information that is not subject to the Privacy Policy governing personal data.


2. What personal data do we collect, process or use?


Your personal data will be used exclusively for the purposes stipulated in this Privacy Policy and to the extent required for such. We will not disclose your data without your consent, unless such disclosure is required in the cases illustrated in this Privacy Policy or those covered by mandatory national legislation.


The use of specific services on our website, i.e. user account, newsletter, contact form, may require prior registration and further processing of personal data. However, we will only use this data if you have knowingly supplied it to us and have explicitly provided your consent for it to be used. In these cases, therefore, we will request your consent clearly and unambiguously on our site and provide additional information via a hyperlink at the relevant place on the site. 


3. Newsletter

You can subscribe to various email newsletters on our website. To sign up for our newsletter, you can either send us your consent to receive the newsletter you have selected when you register as a user, or explicitly state your email address to sign up for the newsletter.

You can withdraw your consent at any time with no explanation required and no more newsletters will be sent to you, with immediate effect. Cancellation may be notified informally via the unsubscribe link included in each newsletter or sent to

3. Access, correction and deletion of personal data 

You can access information regarding the personal data stored by us at any time. You can also view your user account to check, correct or delete any data you have submitted. If it is not possible to delete your information, or if deletion is only possible at a later date for legal or commercial reasons, such data will be blocked.


If you want to permanently delete your user account, any data stored in your user account will be automatically deleted in its entirety.


You can also withdraw your consent for the use of your personal data at any time, in writing.
