HAZET-WERK Hermann Zerver GmbH & Co. KG

This Data Privacy Statement applies to the HAZET plants (Hermann Zerver GmbH & Co. KG). HAZET welcomes your interest in our products, and your visit to our websites. You can use our online content fundamentally without revealing your identity. We take the protection of your personal data very seriously, and adhere strictly to the requirements of the data protection legislation. Personal data is gathered only to the extent it is technically necessary, and is never sold or divulged for any other reason to third parties outside our group of companies or our service providers or dealers.
The following Statement gives you an overview of how we ensure this protection, and what data is gathered, processed, used and/or divulged, and for what purpose.
Data processing on this website
Your visit to our websites is logged. Basically the following data that your browser sends us is captured:

  • The IP address your PC is currently using
  • Date and time
  • Browser type and version
  • Your PC's operating system
  • The web pages you have viewed
  • The name and size of the file(s) accessed
  • Referrer address, i.e. the address of the website you visited us from.
  • All server services used in connection with the web access (web server, database server, FTP server, etc.) are also logged internally

This data is used just to compile simple visitor statistics, mainly to continuously improve our websites. This involves no tracking, and no user profiles are created. It is not generally possible for us to relate the data to individual users, and we do not intend to do so, unless you enter data yourself.
For our presences (also accessible via links from our website) on Facebook ( and YouTube ( the applicable data protection regulations of Facebook ( and YouTube ( apply.
Note for using Piwik
In addition, the Internet web analysis service Piwik, which stores a recognition cookie, is used to statistically analyse the use of this website. However, no personal data is collected for this as the corresponding IP address is anonymised. Nevertheless, at the very bottom of this page, you do have the option to dissent to the collection of your (anonymised) usage patterns. You can enable or disable the Piwik analysis (a Piwik deactivation cookie is stored / deleted).
Please note that the Piwik deactivation cookie is also deleted when you purge the cookies stored in your browser (see below).
Contact data

Personal data is also stored only if you specify this yourself on our contact form for contact purposes. The input and contact forms tell you what data is gathered, and for what purpose.
The personal data you send us via the website or by e-mail (e.g. your name, forename, address, telephone number, your e-mail address, and further optional data such as your company name, department and/or function) is processed only for correspondence with you, and only for the purpose for which you gave us the data.
You are of course entitled to object at any time to us using your data in this way. An informal note to our e-mail address (info (@) or to our Data Protection Officer Mr Arndt Halbach (see below) is sufficient for this purpose.
When you use the HAZET shopping cart – to request one or more tools from a HAZET dealer – the data entered is forwarded to the dealer you selected. We use a time-limited cookie to process your order correctly. No user profile is created.
The survey form ( can be used to take part in the survey anonymously; in this case there is no link to an individual user. Only if you want an answer to your suggestions and comments, and have given your e-mail address or telephone number for contact purposes (by giving your explicit consent by ticking the appropriate box) do we save the personal data you send us and only for this requested contact. You can object to this use at any time and your data will then be deleted immediately. Just contact us via our e-mail address (info (@) or our Data Protection Officer Mr Arndt Halbach (see below). The same applies if you have notified us of any plagiarisms, on (or by telephone on +49 (0) 2191 - 792-206).
We also assure you we do not divulge your personal data to third parties, unless we are required to do so by law, or you have given us your prior consent.
If we engage service providers to conduct and perform processes the contractual relations shall be governed in accordance with the provisions of the German Data Protection Act (Bundesdatenschutzgesetz). We ensure in particular that in this case the third parties have been bound to data secrecy, and that all the ten points set out in section 11 of the German Data Protection Act (BDSG) ("Processing personal data by proxy") are governed by contract.
Log data is generally analysed only by the administrator for purposes of fault-finding and -analysis, and deleted within six months.
