Information regarding data privacy

Data protection

Miele does not collect personal data without your knowledge.

1. Handling of personal data

Miele captures your personal data (e.g. as name, address, etc.) for the sole purpose for which you provided your data.

Your data will only be used within the Miele Group as well as by our business partners to whom we delegate the fulfilment of your requests. No further transmission of your data occurs.
If and when we use external services (e.g. as Google Analytics), we will make this transparent on our website.
Analyses of any kind (e.g. as by analysis services) are always conducted with anonymised data and relating inferences to a specific person is impossible.

2. Technology

Miele uses Internet technologies (e.g. cookies, Java script) exclusively for the purpose of making the operation of Internet applications easier for you. For this purpose, the website uses Google Analytics.

Google Analytics (web analysis service) are used to analyse the use of this website. To accomplish this, reports about your website activities are compiled for Miele, so that Miele can tailor its Internet offerings to your requirements.
The collected data is only analysed for statistical purposes and in anonymised form. Google Analytics accomplishes this by shortening the IP address. Under no circumstances will Google link your shortened IP address with any other Google data.

3. Objection to tracking web analysis (opt-out)

You may object to future tracking analysis at any time. You can download and install the upgrade for your browser from the corresponding Google websites. If you are using several terminal devices or browsers, you must perform the opt-out for each terminal device or browser.

4. Safety

Miele guarantees that your personal data is protected from loss, destruction, falsification, manipulation, unauthorised access and unauthorised disclosure.

5. Links to other websites

Links that are present on the Miele pages may lead to the websites of other companies. Miele is not responsible for their content and data privacy strategies.

6. Questions regarding data privacy

If you have questions, comments or complaints concerning Miele data protection, please contact our data protection officer.


7. Further development of the Internet / Data protection strategy

Further development of the Internet will naturally influence our data privacy strategy. If modifications become necessary, we will inform you on this site in a timely manner.
