  1. LINKS

This privacy policy applies to all data collected and processed by werk_39. In a few cases, links will send you from the B. Braun websites directly to the website of another provider, the content of which shall then be under the responsibility of the respective provider. External links are marked accordingly with an upward pointing arrow. We accept no responsibility for the actions of external websites. When you exit B. Braun websites, we therefore recommend you familiarise yourself with the data protection policies of all linked websites.



Cookies are small text files that are stored locally on your system. Here they pose no threat, do not contain viruses and are simply used for the retrieval of information. Cookies allow us to recognize your preferences, for example, and therefore to adapt the website and its navigation to your needs.

If you refuse to allow the use of cookies (this setting is possible in your browser), you can nevertheless use our website (although functionality may be limited). Further information on cookies can be found here.



On this website Matomo Webanalytics, a web analytics service of InnoCraft Ltd. (“Matomo”), is used on this website. If the information about the use of the website is transmitted to us, the settings ensure that the IP address is made anonymous before geolocation and replaced by a generic IP address before being saved. The data collected in Matomo is used only for the audience measurement and evaluation of the website performance. On behalf of the operator of this website, we will use this information to evaluate the use of the website by the users, to compile reports on the website activities and to provide further services to the website operator in connection with the use of the website and the Internet.

You may choose to prevent this website from aggregating and analyzing the actions you take here. Doing so will protect your privacy, but will also prevent the owner from learning from your actions and creating a better experience for you and other users.



As part of B. Braun’s internet presence, third-party content may sometimes be used (plug-ins). This can take the form of Youtube videos, RSS feeds or graphics of other pages, or social media buttons, such as the Facebook Share button.

If you are on a B. Braun website in which third-party content is embedded, a connection with the respective social network may be made. Through this, the content of the buttons may be transmitted to your browser and thus be integrated into the website. This means the respective provider always receives the information that you called up from the B. Braun website. It is not relevant whether you are a member of a social network or that you are not logged into one. Furthermore, irrespective of whether you actually interact with the embedded content, information is automatically collected by the social network. The following information can be transmitted here: IP address, browser information and operating systems, screen resolution, installed browser plug-ins (e.g. Adobe Flash Player), origin of the visitor (if you followed a link) and the URL of the current page.

If you are logged into a social network while you are using the werk_39 website , the information relating to the call-up of the website might be linked to your member data and stored. If you are a member of a social network and you do not want this data transmission to take place, you must log out of the social network before visiting the B. Braun website.

If you use one of the plug-ins (for example by using the comment or Share button), the relevant provider can assign the website call-up directly to your profile. This data is transmitted directly to the social network and stored there. Furthermore, the corresponding information is published in the respective social networks and is made visible to your contacts.

Braun has no influence on the amount of data collected by the social networks. The nature, scope and purpose of the data collection, information on the further processing of the data, your rights in relation to these and setting options for protecting your privacy are explained in the data protection policies of the respective social network.

You also have the option of blocking social media plug-ins through add-ons in your browser and thereby preventing a transmission of data.



You can retrieve and print these data privacy policies from any B. Braun website using the link “Privacy”.
