On this website, personal data are only collected to the extent that is technically necessary. Under no circumstances are the collected data sold or passed on to third parties for other reasons.
The declaration below gives you an overview of how we guarantee this protection and what sort of data are collected for what purpose.

HeidelbergCement cannot attribute these data to specific individuals. These data are not amalgamated with other data sources. Furthermore, the data are deleted after statistical analysis.
