Basic principle

We attach great importance to protecting your data. This statement outlines the way in which Leineweber handles personal data on the Web, explains which type of information we collect/evaluate and tells you how we use this information and who we exchange it with.

Child-compatible data

There is little if any information on the Leineweber website intended specifically for children. Nevertheless, we naturally feel obliged to comply with all the relevant laws and requirements - such as the "Children's Online Privacy Protection" Act (COPPA).

Use of personal data for stipulated purpose

The collection of personal data via our websites is subject to your consent. You decide, for example, whether you provide us with this data when you register or take part in a survey. The data is also used worldwide by our subsidiaries for enquiries and order handling or to help us improve products and the standard of servicet.
This data is only passed to third parties outside the Leineweber Group with your explicit consent, unless the forwarding of such information is permitted by national or European regulations. The data is used exclusively for the purposes described in more detail below.


Leineweber employs secure server technology to enable you to conduct online transactions easily and safely. The required technical and organisational security measures are incorporated in all Leineweber sites in order to prevent misuse. These measures are in line with the state of the art.

The server technology used for Leineweber B2B activities encrypts your personal financial data before it is transmitted via the internet. This technology works most efficiently if the B2B site is displayed by a browser that supports secure socket layer (SSL) technology.

Data protection throughout the entire Leineweber network

Leineweber is a global company and operates numerous websites worldwide. All the information you send to one of our sites from any country and in any language may be electronically transmitted to a server for one of these sites in another country. There, this information may be used, stored or edited outside the country in which it was originally documented. However, we safeguard your security interests worldwide by ensuring that this Leineweber site is subject to our international data protection guidelines as outlined here.

We require our employees to maintain absolute confidentiality and data security.


By using our website, you agree to the storage and use of information as outlined here. Any amendments to the data protection statement will be implemented directly on this website so that you always know which data we store and how we use it.
