you visit our websites, we store certain information about the browser and
operating system you are using; the date and time of your visit; the status of
the interaction (e.g. whether you were able to access the website or received
an error message); the usage of features on the website; any search phrases you
entered; how often you visit individual websites; the names of the files you
access; the amount of data transferred; the Web page from which you accessed
our website; and the Web page you visited after visiting our website, whether
by clicking links on our websites or entering a domain directly into the input
field of the same tab (or window) of the browser in which you have our websites
open. In addition, we store your IP address and the name of your Internet
service provider for seven days. This is for security reasons; in particular,
to prevent and detect attacks on our websites or attempts at fraud.
only process other personal data if you provide this data, e.g. as part of a
registration, contact form, chat, survey, price competition or for the
execution of a contract, and even in these cases only insofar as this is
permitted to us on the basis of a consent (including consent to international
data transfer, see section 12) given by you or in accordance with the
applicable legal provisions (see section 7).
are neither legally nor contractually obligated to share your personal
information. However, certain features of our websites may depend on the
sharing or personal information. If you do not provide your personal
information in such cases, you may not be able to use those features, or they
may be available with limited functionality.
a. We use the personal
information collected during your visit to any of our websites to make using
them as convenient as possible for you and to protect our IT systems against
attacks and other unlawful activities.
b. If you share additional
information with us – for example, by filling out a registration form, contact
form, chat, survey, contest entry or to execute a contract with you – we will
use that information for the designated purposes, purposes of customer
management and – if required – for purposes of processing and billing and
business transactions within the required scope in each instance.
c. For other purposes (e.g.
display of personalized content or advertising based on your usage behaviour),
we and, if applicable, selected third parties, use your personal data if and to
the extent you give your consent through our consent management system. You
will find further information and decision-making options under "Cookie Settings"
in the footer at the bottom of the website.
d. In addition, we use personal data to the extent that we are legally
obliged to do so (e.g., storage for the fulfilment of commercial or tax-related
retention obligations, release in accordance with official or judicial orders,
e.g. to a law enforcement authority).
of Personal Information to Third Parties; Social Plugins; Use of Service Providers
a. Our websites may also contain an offer of
third parties. If you click on such an offer, we transfer data to the
respective provider to the required extent (e.g. information that you have
found this offer with us and, if applicable, further information that you have
already provided on our websites for this purpose).
b. When we use social plug-ins on our websites
from social networks such as Facebook and Twitter, we integrate them as
When you visit our
websites, the social plug-ins are deactivated, i.e. no data is transmitted to
the operators of these networks. If you want to use one of the networks, click
on the respective social plug-in to establish a direct connection to the server
of the respective network.
If you have a user account
on the network and are logged in when you activate the social plug-in, the
network can associate your visit to our websites with your user account. If you
want to avoid this, please log out of the network before activating the social
plug-in. A social network cannot associate a visit to other Mercedes-Benz
websites until you have activated an existing social plug-in.
When you activate a
social plug-in, the network transfers the content that becomes available
directly to your browser, which integrates it into our websites. In this
situation, data transmissions can also take place that are initiated and
controlled by the respective social network. Your connection to a social
network, the data transfers taking place between the network and your system,
and your interactions on that platform are governed solely by the privacy
policies of that network.
The social plug-in remains
active until you deactivate it or delete your cookies (see section 5.d).
If you click on the link to an offer or activate a social plug-in,
personal data may reach providers in countries outside the European Economic
Area that, from the point of view of the European Union ("EU"), may
not guarantee an "adequate level of protection" for the processing of
personal data in accordance with EU standards. Please remember this fact before
clicking on a link or activating a social plug-in and thereby triggering a
transfer of your data.
d. We also use qualified
service providers (e.g., IT service providers, marketing agencies)
to operate, optimize and secure our websites. We only pass on personal data to
the latter insofar as this is necessary for the provision and use of the
website and its functionalities, for the pursuit of legitimate interests, to
comply with legal obligations, or insofar as you have consented there to (see section
7). You will find more information regarding recipients of personal data in our
consent management system under "Cookie
Settings" in the footer at
the bottom of the website.

marketing of our products and services (to the extent not covered by your
consent) and those of third parties and the legally required documentation of
business contacts. As part of the consideration of interests required in each

information, the purpose of processing, the circumstances of processing and
your interest in the confidentiality of your personal information.
your personal data
address and the name of your Internet service provider, which we store for
security reasons, are deleted after seven days. Moreover, we delete your
personal information as soon as the purpose for which it was collected and
processed has been fulfilled. Beyond this time period, data storage only takes
place to the extent made necessary by the legislation, regulations or other
legal provisions to which we are subject in the EU or by legal provisions in
third-party countries if these have an appropriate level of data protection.
Should it not be possible to delete data in individual cases, the relevant
personal data are flagged to restrict their further processing.

have the right to revoke your consent at any time. Your revocation does not
affect the legality of the processing of your personal information that took
place before your consent was revoked. It also has no effect on the continued
processing of the information on another legal basis, such as to fulfill legal
obligations (see section titled "Legal Foundation of Processing").
Right to object[A6]

situation, you have the right to file an objection at any time to the
processing of personal data pertaining to you that is collected under Section 6

freedoms, or if processing is for the assertion, exercise or defense of legal
claims. To the extent we use your personal data for direct marketing based on
legitimate interests, you have the right to object at any time without giving

(= European Economic Area) are transferred and processed there, in particular USA, India.
b. In the following countries,
from the EU's point of view, there is an adequate level of personal data
protection (so-called "adequacy"), in compliance with EU standards:
Andorra, Argentina, Canada (limited), Faroe Islands, Guernsey, Israel, Isle of
Man, Japan, Jersey, New Zealand, Switzerland, Uruguay. We agree with recipients
in other countries on the use of EU standard contractual clauses, binding
corporate rules or other applicable instruments (if any) to create an "adequate level of
protection" according to legal requirements. For more information, please
use the contact details given in section 9.d. above.
c. To the extent that you
consent within our Consent Management System, you also consent to the transfer
of data to recipients in countries outside of the European Economic Area in
which no “adequate level of protection” exists. You may find information on
data transferred, data recipients or categories of data recipients, and the
relevant countries in our Consent Management System under "Cookie Settings" in the footer at the
bottom of the website. Data protection law in these countries may not be fully comparable to that in the European Economic Area (e. g., regarding data subject rights, see section 9 above), no data protection authorities and/or no comparable options to oppose data protection violations. Among other
things, public bodies (e. g., authorities) in these countries potentially may have easier access to data processed there and use such data for other purposes than in the European Economic Area. These circumstances may only partially be compensated through specific measures.

Cautions regarding forward-looking statements.
This website contains forward-looking statements about our current assessment of future events. The words "anticipate", "assume", "believe", "estimate", "expect", "intend", "may", "plan,“ "project“, "should“ and similar expressions identify forward-looking statements.
These statements are subject to a number of risks and uncertainties. Some examples are
- an unfavourable development of the global economic situation, especially a decline in demand in our most important sales markets,
- a deterioration in our refinancing options on the credit and financial markets, unavoidable events of force majeure such as, for example, natural disasters, acts of terrorism, political unrest, armed conflicts, industrial accidents and their consequential effects on our sales, purchasing, production or financing activities,
- changes in exchange rates and customs regulations,
- a change in consumer behaviour towards smaller and less profitable vehicles or a possible loss of acceptance of our products and services with the consequence of an impairment in the enforcement of prices and in the utilisation of production capacities,
- price increases for fuels and raw materials,
- interruptions in production due to material bottlenecks, staff strikes or supplier insolvencies,
- a decline in the resale prices of used vehicles,
- the successful implementation of cost reduction and efficiency improvement measures,
- the business prospects of the companies in which we hold significant shares,
- the successful implementation of strategic cooperations and joint ventures,
- the changes in laws, regulations and official directives, especially insofar as they affect vehicle emissions, fuel consumption and safety,
- as well as the conclusion of ongoing official investigations or investigations initiated by authorities and the outcome of pending or threatening future legal proceedings
- and other risks and uncertainties, some of which are described in the current annual report under the heading "Risk and Opportunities Report".
If any of these uncertainties or contingencies materialise, or if the assumptions underlying any of the forward-looking statements prove incorrect, then actual results may be materially different from those expressed or implied by such statements.
We neither intend nor assume any obligation to update forward-looking statements on an ongoing basis, as these are based solely on the circumstances on the date of publication.
The information and descriptions on these pages do not represent any kind of assurance or guarantee either expressed or implied.

Order of precedence
Notes on the battery law.
The symbol of the crossed-out dustbin indicates that batteries and accumulators (together: old batteries) must not be disposed of in unsorted municipal waste (household waste) after use.
If batteries or accumulators contain mercury (Hg), cadmium (Cd) or lead (Pb), you will find the respective chemical symbol below the symbol of the crossed-out dustbin. You are legally obliged to return old batteries and accumulators after use. You can do this free of charge at the retail shop or at another collection point near you. Addresses of suitable collection points can be obtained from your city or local government.
Batteries may contain substances that are harmful to the environment and human health. Caution is advised when handling lithium-containing batteries due to the special risks involved. The separate collection and recycling of old batteries and accumulators is intended to avoid negative impacts on the environment and human health.
Please avoid the generation of waste from old batteries as far as possible, e.g. by preferring batteries with a longer life or rechargeable batteries. Please avoid littering the public space by not carelessly leaving batteries or electrical and electronic equipment containing batteries. Please consider ways of reusing a battery instead of disposing of it, for example by reconditioning or repairing the battery.
The recycling rate achieved in 2020 for the used automotive and industrial batteries taken back by Mercedes-Benz AG is 100%.
According to the End-of-Life Vehicles Ordinance and the Electrical and Electronic Equipment Act, we as manufacturers are obliged to publish annual data on the achievement of quantitative targets with regard to the recovery of end-of-life vehicles (recovery rates) and the separate collection and recycling of electrical equipment. Details on end-of-life vehicle recycling rates in Germany can be found on the website of the Federal Environment Ministry >here.
Information obligations pursuant to § 18 Sec. 2 of Electrical and Electronic Equipment Act can be found >here.
We are registered with the Foundation for Waste Electrical Equipment Register as a manufacturer of electrical and electronic equipment under the registration number (WEEE Reg. No.). DE) registered: DE 64356963.
