The Bernard van Lengerich Group is fully aware of the importance of data protection on the Internet and takes its duty to protect your privacy during your visit to our Website very seriously. The BvL Group implements sensible measures to protect all information obtained from our online visitors from unauthorised access and usage. In addition, we subject our security measures to regular checks. We have compiled the following guidelines to explain how we use the information obtained from users of our Website:

What information is collected by the BvL Group?
As a general rule, you can visit BvL on the Internet and access our information whilst remaining anonymous, i.e. without disclosing any personal data. However, at times we do ask you to provide certain information (for example, your name and address) so that we can better understand your motivation and are able to make you aware of new products that might be ideal for you. In addition, our Web server may record the domain names - but not the e-mail addresses - of visitors to our site. We use the information collected to track the nature of our visitors in order to improve the content of our Website.

How does the BvL Group protect your personal data?
On the forms that you fill out in order to make contact with us, you may be asked to enter sensitive information such as your e-mail address, postal address or telephone number. If this is the case, the BvL Group will implement all economically viable measures in order to ensure a secure connection with your Internet browser. Note that our Website contains links to third-party Websites that do not belong to the BvL Group. However, we try to make sure that we only place links to pages that take the protection of customer data as seriously as us. Nevertheless, we cannot accept any responsibility for the content of third-party Websites or their handling of your personal data.

How can personal data be updated? 
You can help us to ensure that your data is correct by letting the BvL Group know about any changes to your postal address, telephone number, or e-mail address. All personal data will be treated confidentially. When collecting, processing, and using data and information, we strictly observe the legal requirements of the German Data Protection Act and Remote Services Act. At any time, you can write to the BvL Group, Grenzstraße 16, 48488 Emsbüren, Germany, to prohibit or revoke your consent to the usage, processing, and transmission of your data - including for marketing purposes.
