Henkel stores and processes data in particular for the following purposes:

When users visit the website, Henkel automatically collects and stores certain data such as
the IP address or device ID assigned to the respective end device, which we require for the transmission of requested content (e.g. content, texts, images, product information as well as files made available for download, etc.), user activities in connection with the website, the type of the respective end device, the browser type as well as the date and duration of use.

Henkel stores this data for a maximum of 7 days to recognise and track misuse.

Henkel also uses this data to improve its own offering and functions of the service as well as for general administrative tasks.

Otherwise, Henkel deletes or anonymises the usage data, including the IP addresses, as soon as they are no longer required for the above-mentioned purposes.

The processing and use of the data is based on legal provisions that justify these operations because (1) the processing is necessary for the provision of the website; or (2) Henkel has an overriding legitimate interest in ensuring and improving the functionality and error-free operation of the website and tailoring it to the needs of users.
