Only technical information such as the name of your internet service provider, type of internet browser, operating system, screen resolution as well as the website that brought you to us, number and date of your visits, average time of your visit and the web pages you visited are stored automatically (i.e. without registration).

We only collect, process and use your personal information if you provide us with your data voluntarily, for instance, within the framework of an inquiry, application, registration, survey, etc. In this case, we will use your personal data to answer your inquiry, process your order, provide you with access to specific information or offers, for customer management purposes, for product surveys and for marketing purposes only to the extent necessary for this. To maintain customer relationships, it may also be necessary for us to store and process your personal data.

MEILLER AUFZUGTÜREN uses cookies on this website. Cookies are small text files in which information is stored on your computer and which can be retrieved during your next visit to cache technical data or information required so that the website may function correctly.

Registration

If you would like to receive the newsletter offered on the website, we need an e-mail address from you as well as information that allows us to verify that you are the owner of the e-mail address and agree to receive the newsletter.
To ensure that procedure, we use a double-opt-in registration process. During this process, the potential recipient can be included in the distribution list. The user receives a confirmation e-mail to confirm the application in a legally admissible manner. The address is actively included in the distribution list only after confirmation.
