Data protection declaration

BASF is delighted that you have visited our website and thanks you for your interest in our company. We take the protection of your personal data seriously and want you to feel safe when you are visiting our Internet site.

We would like to inform you in our data protection declaration what information we collect at BASF while you are visiting our website and how this is used.

Collecting data

When you visit the BASF Investor Relations website, general information is collected automatically (in other words, not by means of registration) which is not used as personal data. The web servers that are used store data by default:

  • The name of your internet service provider
  • The website from which you visited us
  • The websites which you visit when you are with us
  • Your IP address

This information is analysed in anonymised form. It is used solely for the purpose of improving the attractiveness, content and functionality of our website. Where data is passed on to external service providers, we have taken technical and organisational measures to ensure that the data protection regulations are observed.

Collecting and processing personal data

Personal data is only collected when you provide us with this in the course of, say, registration, by filling out forms or sending emails, and in the course of ordering products or services, inquiries or requests for material.

The database and your information remain with our company and our provider. Your personal data will not be made available to third parties in any form by us or by persons instructed by us.

Right to obtain information

You have the right to check and correct all data relating to your person stored with us, if it is in your opinion out-of-date or incorrect. It is sufficient here to send an email to the email address indicated in the imprint or to the person in charge of data protection (see below for the address and the email address).

Storing data (data retention)

We store personal data for as long as it is necessary to perform a service that you have requested or for which you have granted your permission, providing that no legal requirements exist to the contrary such as in the case of current legal proceedings.

Cookies

We currently do not use cookies on our corporate website. However, we reserve the right to use cookies in certain areas of the website if this is required for an application or service which we provide.

Security

BASF deploys technical and organisational security measures to protect the information you have made available from being manipulated unintentionally or intentionally, lost, destroyed or accessed by unauthorised persons. Where personal data is being collected and processed the information will be transferred in encrypted form in order to prevent misuse of the data by a third party. Our security measures are subject to continuous revision in line with technical developments.

Children

BASF AG urges all parents and persons supervising children to instruct their children on how to deal with personal data on the Internet in a safe and responsible way. Children should not transmit personal data to BASF AG's website without permission from their parents or the person supervising them. BASF AG undertakes not to knowingly collect the personal data of children, to use it in any way or to disclose it to third persons.

Contact

If you experience any problems or have any questions or ideas, please refer to the data protection representative at BASF AG, who will be pleased to help you. The continuous development of the Internet makes it necessary for us to adjust our data protection declaration from time to time. We reserve the right to implement appropriate changes at any time.
