Cookies and use of analysis tools

For several functions, the websites use cookies. These are designed to make our website more user friendly, effective and secure. Cookies are small text files which are filed on your computer and saved by your browser. Most of the cookies we use are session cookies. These are deleted automatically after your visit. Cookies do not cause any damage to your computer and do not contain any viruses.

Viessmann also uses analytical tools for this purpose, e.g. Webtrends or AppSee. The data provided and used is collected and saved completely anonymously. This data may under certain circumstances also be saved outside Germany or the European Union.

You can prevent such data being transmitted via corresponding settings in your browser or app, or the executing operating system environment (iOS, Android), but this may lead to problems with retrieval or operation, or with the functionality of the offered content or service in some cases.

Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service provided by Google, Inc. ("Google"). Google Analytics uses so-called "cookies", text files that are stored on your computer that allow us to analyse your use of the website. As a rule, the cookie-generated data regarding your use of this website will be forwarded to a Google server in the USA and stored there. However, if IP anonymisation is enabled on this website, your IP address will be truncated by Google within the member states of the European Union or other parties to the agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transferred to a Google server in the USA, where it will be truncated. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, for compiling reports on website activity, and for providing other services regarding website activity and internet usage to the website operator. The IP address transferred by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data. You can change the appropriate settings of your browser to prevent cookies being stored. However, we must point out that doing so may mean that you can no longer use the full features of the website. Furthermore, you have the option of preventing the capture of data relating to your use of the website generated by cookies (incl. your IP address) by Google as well as their processing by Google, by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available via the following link (http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en).

You can find more detailed information on Google's Terms of Use and Privacy Policy at http://www.google.com/analytics/terms/de.html and at https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/. We must point out that Google Analytics has been extended to include the "anonymizeIp" function to ensure the anonymous collection of IP addresses (IP masking) on this site.
