Viessmann Privacy Statement – Our Commitment to You
Viessmann is committed to keeping confidential and secure all information that is obtained from Viessmann Independent Partners, from Viessmann employees, customers and/or any other third party.
Collection of Information
Viessmann only collects information which you provide to Viessmann and which you ask Viessmann to retain. By using the Viessmann websites you consent to the collection and retention of your information in accordance with this policy.
Data used for the "Viessmann Account" on our Websites and Apps
Viessmann uses a central identity and access management system ("IAM") in addition to conventional login functions (e.g. user ID and password) for granting, changing and deleting access and access authorizations for websites and apps that are not public or not freely usable. For this purpose, the following personal data will be processed from you:
- Email address
- Website / app used with last timestamp
- User role(s)
- Timestamp of last successful login
- First name, last name and other data (depending on the website / app used)
- Mobile phone number (for 2-factor authentication)
The data listed above is processed by us for the following purposes:
- Creation of the "Viessmann Account"
- Creation and management of access rights to apps and websites
- Creation and administration of role-based access rights within apps and websites
- Checking and display of authorizations by/for the respective responsible functions for the individual websites and apps at Viessmann
- Communication of information on the website and app used (e.g. changes, error messages, innovations, etc.)
- Creation and usage of aggregated ("anonymized") key figures on the use of websites and apps
We do not use the collected data for the purpose of drawing further conclusions about your person or creating profiles.
The data mentioned above will be automatically deleted or, in the case of use for statistics, anonymized if your user account is inactive for longer than 360 days (based on last timestamp of successful login or use of website or app). You will receive corresponding information from us before this period expires. We reserve the right to store personal data for a longer period of time if this results from legal or contractual reasons, or if facts exist that suggest the assumption of unauthorized access.
Cookies and use of Third Party Analysis Tools
This website uses "cookies" for several functions. Cookies are small text files which are saved by your browser and stored on your computer. These are designed to make our website more user-friendly, effective and secure. Most of the cookies we use are "session cookies", and they are deleted automatically after you close your browser. Cookies do not cause any damage to your computer and do not contain any viruses.
Viessmann also uses third party analytical tools such as Google Analytics, Google AdSense and AT Internet. The data provided and used is collected and saved completely anonymously.
You can prevent such data from being transmitted via settings in your browser or operating system, but this may lead to problems with the functionality of certain webpages or services.
Google Analytics stores information about the pages you visit on our website, how long you spend on each page, how you got to the site, and what you click on while you’re visiting the site.
Google Analytics does not collect or store your personal information (e.g. your name or address), so the website statistical data cannot be used to identify who you are.
You can prevent your website data from being used by Google Analytics by using the "Google Analytics Opt-out Browser Add-on", which is available for download here: tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout
This website uses Google AdSense, an ad service provided by Google Inc. ("Google"). Google AdSense uses advertising cookies to serve ads based on a user's prior visits to our website and/or other sites on the Internet.

Google AdSense does not collect or store your personal information (e.g. your name or address), so the website statistical data cannot be used to identify who you are.
