Data Protection

Saving access data

Access data is saved in a log file on our server every time a user accesses a page on the IWAKI Europe GmbH website and every time a file is called up.

Each data set for a request consists of:

  • • the original link the request came from
  • • the file name
  • • the date and time of the request
  • • the amount of data transferred
  • • the access status (file transferred, file not found etc.)
  • • the results of the web browser type query
  • • the IP address of the person making the request

The saved data is only analysed for statistical purposes. It is not forwarded to third parties either for commercial or non-commercial purposes.

Analysing accesses using Piwik

This site uses Piwik which is open source software for the statistical analysis of user accesses. Piwik uses cookies, text files that are saved on users' computers and are used to analyse how users use the website. The information about the use of this site created by the cookie is saved on the supplier's server in Germany. The IP address is anonymised immediately after processing and before it is saved. Users can prevent cookies being installed by configuring their browser software appropriately but the supplier advises users that in this case they may not be able to use all the functions of this website fully.

Using personal data

Personal data is only collected if users provide this voluntarily, e.g. when registering, by filling in forms or by ordering information material. IWAKI Europe GmbH uses this data to answer queries and to inform users of the company's offers and services in future. It is not forwarded to third parties either for commercial or non-commercial purposes.

Users are entitled to obtain information about the personal data stored about them free of charge on request. In accordance with statutory regulations they are also entitled to correct, block and delete this personal data.


By using our website and entering your personal data voluntarily, e.g. on our online registration form, you agree to the data being used for the specified purposes. Your personal data will not be processed further or passed on to third parties without your consent.


IWAKI uses up-to-date technical security measures to protect the data provided from accidental or deliberate manipulation, loss, destruction or access by unauthorised parties. When personal data is collected and processed the information is transferred in encrypted form.


Cookies are small text files that are transferred to your computer together with the actually requested data from the Internet. This data is saved there and is available for calling up later.

We use cookies in several areas. Cookies may also be used on linked sites but we will not be able to inform you of this in advance. When logging on in particular, session cookies are used so as to make the site more user-friendly.

In addition, another cookie stores the log in information allocated to you (user name, user rights and the validity of the session) for access control purposes. You can look on this as spare log in information. Instead of you having to enter your log in information again the cookie, if available, is queried by the server and accepted as proof of identity.


Cookies are only valid for your visit to our portal. When you close the browser they are only deleted in accordance with your personal settings. There is no link to your personal data

Most browsers are set in such a way that they accept cookies automatically. You can, however, disable the saving of cookies or set you browser in such a way that it informs you as soon as cookies are set.
