Welcome to the SaltMech and Federal Institute for Geosciences and Natural Resources (BGR)!


We are pleased that you are visiting our website and would like to thank you for your interest in our organisation and our site. Protection of your privacy when using our website is important to us. Please note the following information in that regard:


Anonymous data collection

As a matter of principle, you can visit the SaltMech website without telling us who you are. All we find out is the name of your Internet service provider, the website from which you are visiting us and the pages of our website that you view. This information is analysed for statistical purposes. You, the individual user, remain anonymous.


Collection and processing of personal data

Since the purpose of our website is purely to provide information to customers, no personal data is collected.


Data export and processing in countries outside the European Economic Area

Since no personal data is collected, none is exported to countries outside the EEA.


Using and passing on personal data

Since no personal data is collected on our informational website, none is used or passed on.


External links

To provide you with optimal information, our website contains links to third-party sites. Insofar as links of this kind are not obviously recognisable, we point out that they are external links. The BGR has no influence on the content and design of other providers’ websites. Therefore, the guarantees in this data protection statement naturally do not apply to those sites.
