This Privacy Statement describes how we treat personal information on the website where this Privacy Statement is referenced or found.

Collection of Site Activity Data

You are not required to provide personal information as a condition of using our site, except as may be necessary to provide you a product or service at your request. When you use our website, we store data for various administrative purposes. This data may include the name of your Internet service provider, the website that you used to link to our site, the websites that you visit from our site and your IP Address. This data could possibly lead to your identification, but we do not use it to do so. We do use the data from time to time for statistical purposes, but maintain the anonymity of each individual user so that the person cannot be identified. In cases when personal information is provided to others to provide you products or services you have requested, or for other purposes you have authorized, we rely on technical and organizational means to assure that applicable data privacy regulations are followed.

Collection and Processing of Personal Information

We collect personal information when you provide it to us, through registration, completion of forms or emails, as part of an order for products or services, inquiries or requests about materials being ordered and similar situations in which you have chosen to provide the information to us. We collect business-to-business (“B2B”) data, which is personal information related to our business-to-business and vendor relationships, including business contact information provided to us to consummate the relationship and carry out business functions. Examples include your name, telephone number, email address, and mailing address.

Some of this data may be stored or processed at computers located in jurisdictions other than the jurisdiction in which you live and whose privacy or data protection laws may differ. We store personal information for as long as necessary to carry out the purposes for which we originally collected it and for other legitimate business purposes, including to meet our legal, regulatory, or other compliance obligations.

Purposes of Use

The data we collect will be used for the purpose of supplying you with the requested products or services, to carry out B2B functions, and as may otherwise be permitted by law. On certain websites, where you submit personal information, you may be asked to indicate your preferences as to whether or not you wish to receive information and/or promotional materials about our company and its products or services or about third parties with whom we have strategic business relationships and their products and services. We will respect any such preferences as indicated and you will have the ability to change such preference according to the "Choices" section below.


You have the right to review and amend any personal information stored in our system if you believe it may be out of date or incorrect. Just send an email to us by using the link in the Imprint for this website.

You have the right at any time to opt out of receiving from our company information and/or promotional materials. Again, just send an email to us by using the link in the Imprint for this website, or follow the instructions in those communications. If you opt out, we may still send you non-promotional emails, such as those about our ongoing business relations.

Use of Cookies

In some websites, so-called Cookies are used in order for us to improve the efficiency of your individual use of the website. Cookies are identifiers that our web-server could send to your computer in order to identify the computer being used for the duration of the session. Most browsers are set up to accept these Cookies automatically. In addition, you can deactivate the storing of cookies or adjust your browser to inform you before the Cookie is stored on your computer.

Our Do Not Track Policy: Some browsers have “do not track” features that allow you to tell a website not to track you. These features are not all uniform. We do not currently respond to those signals. If you block cookies, certain features on our website may not work. If you block or reject cookies, not all of the tracking described here will stop.


Where indicated, we use the Secure Socket Layer protocol (SSL protocol for short) to help ensure the secure transmission of your details to the server by encrypting customers’ details transmitted on the Internet.


This website is not intended for use by children under the age of 18, and we do not knowingly collect information directly from children under the age of 18. If we discover that we have received information directly from a child under the age of 18, we will delete that information. If you are a parent or legal guardian and believe we have collected information directly from your child, you may request that such information be deleted by using the contact information identified in the Contact Us section below or the Imprint for this website.

    Only you or an authorized agent may make a request to access your personal information. You may have the right to make a free request twice during any twelve-month period. 
  2. Request we delete certain personal information we collected from you. You may have the right to request that we delete your personal information, subject to certain exceptions. After we receive and validate your request, we will delete your personal information, unless an exception under the CPRA applies. Please be aware that, once deleted, your data, including your account and activities, cannot be restored.
  3. Request we correct inaccurate personal information that we maintain about you.
  4. Request that we stop selling your personal information or sharing your personal information for cross-context behavioral advertising. You may have a right to opt-out of sale of your personal information or sharing of your personal information for cross-context behavioral advertising. Note, however, LANXESS does not sell consumer personal information or share consumer personal information for cross-context behavioral advertising. As such, we do not offer this right.
  5. Request to receive the information under right (1) in a format, to the extent technically feasible, that is portable, usable, and allows you to transmit the personal information to a person without impediment, where the processing is carried out by automated means.
  6. Request related to “sensitive” personal information or data. Note, however, LANXESS does not collect “sensitive” personal information or data from you. As such, we do not offer this right.
  7. Be free from unlawful discrimination for exercising your rights under the CPRA. We will not discriminate or retaliate against you for exercising any of your rights under the CPRA.

For your safety and the safety of your information, we cannot fulfill a request to provide, correct, or delete personal information if we cannot verify your identity or authority to make the request. We need to confirm the personal information relates to you or the individual for whom you are a lawful agent. 

To verify your identity, we will ask that you provide the following information when you submit your request:

  • First Name
  • Last Name
  • Email Address
  • Mobile Phone Number
  • Address
  • City
  • State
  • Zip Code.

We may require additional verification information from you, including before deleting or disclosing particularly sensitive information. We will only use the verification information you provide for the purpose of verifying your identity or authority to make the request. 

We will respond to your request within forty-five (45) calendar days. However, in certain circumstances, we may require additional time to process your request, as permitted by applicable law. We will advise you within forty-five (45) calendar days after receiving your request if such an extension is necessary and why it is needed. 

Submitting a request does not require you to create an account with us. We do not charge you a fee to process or respond to your verifiable consumer request unless it is excessive, repetitive, or manifestly unfounded. If we determine that the request warrants a fee (only if permitted under the law), we will tell you why we made that decision and provide you with a cost estimate before completing your request.

In some instances, we may not be able to honor your request. For example, we will not honor your request if we cannot verify your identity, if we cannot verify that you have the authority to make a request on behalf of another individual or if an exception applies. We will advise you in our response if we are not able to honor your request.

You may have the option to designate an authorized agent to submit a request on your behalf. If we receive your request from an authorized agent, we may require evidence that you have provided such agent with a power of attorney or that the agent otherwise has valid written authority to submit requests to exercise rights on your behalf.

If you have any questions about these rights or are a California resident who would like to exercise your rights as described above, please use the contact information identified in the Contact Us section below or the Imprint for this website. For requests to exercise your rights, provide the information listed in the “Verifying Your Request” section above.

LANXESS does not share your personal information with non-affiliated third parties for their own direct marketing purposes. If you are entitled to any disclosure rights in your jurisdiction regarding our sale of your personal information to non-affiliated third parties or our disclosure of your personal information to third parties for their own direct marketing purposes, this disclosure satisfies those requirements. If you still wish to learn more about our compliance with this requirement, please use the contact information identified in the Contact Us section below or the Imprint for this website.
