Personal details over and above this, such as your name, your address, telephone number or e-mail address, are not captured, unless you give this information of you own free will, e.g. when you wish to register, as part of a survey or a competition, to arrange a contract, or you request information.

Using, Disclosing and Distributing Personal Data

If you have provided us with any personal data we only use these data for technical administration of our Web pages and to respond to your wishes and requests, which as a rule means to process any contract concluded with you or to reply to any queries you may have.

Should an isolated instance arise which compels us to store personal data as well in a cookie, we will obtain your express consent beforehand. Additionally, we would point out that browsers generally have functions for cookie administration.

If you wish to contact the WHU by e-mail, we would draw your attention to the fact that the confidentiality of the information transmitted cannot be guaranteed.
