1. Handling of personal data
Wakim captures your personal data (e.g. as name, address, etc.) for the sole purpose for which you provided your data. Your data will only be used within the Miele Group as well as by our business partners to whom we delegate the fulfilment of your requests. No further transmission of your data occurs. If and when we use external services (e.g. as Google Analytics), we will make this transparent on our website. Analyses of any kind (e.g. as by analysis services) are always conducted with anonymised data and relating inferences to a specific person is impossible.
Wakim uses Internet technologies (e.g. cookies, Java script) exclusively for the purpose of mak-ing the operation of Internet applications easier for you. For this purpose, the website uses Google Analytics. Google Analytics (web analysis service) are used to analyse the use of this website. To accomplish this, reports about your website activities are compiled for XXX (Name Importeur einfügen), so that Wakim can tailor its Internet offerings to your requirements. The collected data is only analysed for statistical purposes and in anonymised form. Google Analytics accomplishes this by shortening the IP address. Under no circumstances will Google link your shortened IP address with any other Google data.

You may object to future tracking analysis at any time. You can download and install the upgrade for your browser from the corresponding Google websites.

As a rule, special software is required to view CAD files. The CAD data from Miele is available in different formats and is compatible with current CAD programmes:
The design files for the appliances are indicated with the heating type “EL” (electric), “D” (steam) or “G” (gas) as appropri-ate. The additional "D", "S", "V" or "R" stand for the top, side, front or rear view of the appliances.
