If you register for a business account, we further ask for the name and address of your company, your company’s register number, VAT and industry as well as a telephone number. At the moment, it is not yet possible to register with a private account on our website.
  • If you place an order with us, we ask you to additionally provide us with the information necessary to execute your order, in particular with CAD-files.
  • You may also contact us for questions or remarks that you have, in which case we collect and process the information you provide to us.
  • For the use of cookies on our website, please see below under „Google Analytics“ and Use of Cookies“).

Use and Disclosure of Personal Data/Purpose of Use
The log files data are temporarily saved in log files for security reasons, in particular to ward off attacks on our web server, as well as for the creation of statistics about the usage of our website on anonymous basis. We do not connect data from the log files with data from other sources. However, if we have good reasons to believe that our website has been misused, we reserve the right to check the log files subsequently.

Your registration data we use to provide you with an account on our website, which makes it easier for you to administer your orders with us. Your registration data and your order data we use to execute the relevant order. If you contact us for questions or remarks, we use the data provided by you to handle your request. To the extent we are permitted to do so, we may also use your email address to send newsletters to you without your separate consent. You may opt out of this at any time. Further information with regard to such opt out will be provided in the newsletters.

We will not provide third parties with any personal data that we may have collected from you unless we are entitled to do so without your separate consent by law – which may in particular be the case when it is necessary for execution of your orders –, or you gave us separate consent.

Use of Google Analytics
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc. (“Google”).

Google Analytics uses “cookies,” which are text files placed on your computer, to help this website analyze how it is used. The information generated by the cookie about your use of the website will generally be transmitted to a server in the USA and stored there by Google. However, IP anonymization has been activated on this website, i.e. your IP address is truncated (shortened) beforehand by Google within member states of the European Union or other signatory states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Google uses this information on behalf of us, to evaluate your use of the website in order to compile reports about website activities and provide further services to us associated with the usage of the website and internet usage. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other data held by Google. You can prevent saving of cookies on your computer by making corresponding adjustments to your browser software (with respect to this, please see also below under „Use of Cookies“); we do however point out that in this case you may not be able to use all functions of this website to their full extent.

Use of Cookies
In order to make your visit of our website more convenient, our website uses session cookies exclusively to maintain your language selection and to save you from having to re-enter information each time as you navigate through the various webpages. „Cookies“ are text files saved on your computer. These cookies are discarded when you leave our website.

If you do not wish your computer to be recognized, please select browser settings that delete cookies from your hard drive or that block all cookies or prompt you before a cookie is stored. We may point out however, that in this case you may not be able to use all functions of this website to their full extent.

Social Plug-Ins
We use so-called social plug-ins on this website, namely Facebook, Google+- LinkedIn, YouTube and Twitter plug-ins. Such plug-ins enable you to share information provided on our website with others via your social media accounts.

We integrated the social plug-ins on our website as simple HTML links to the social media websites in accordance with the so-called „advanced double click solution“ („Shariff solution“) which means the plug-ins are deactivated by default. This ensures that initially only the server address of our website is transferred to the social media provider instead of user data. The social plug-in will only be activated when you click on it. In this case the information you would like to share will be transferred to the social media provider. It may also be that a pop up window of the social media provider opens and, in case you are logged onto your social media account in that moment, you will have to confirm again that you would like to share the information before it is actually transferred.

Information about what kind of data is collected, processed and used by the social media providers and for which purposes, possible settings with regard to your social media account and your rights you may find on the websites of the social media providers. We recommend that you make yourself familiar with the privacy policies of the social media providers which you may find on the following websites:

Links to, and Information on, Other Websites
Our website contains links to other websites. Please note that we cannot be held responsible for the compliance with data protection or other regulations by third-party providers or the contents of such websites.

When you leave our website, we recommend that you consult the privacy policies or data protection declarations of any other websites you may subsequently visit.

Data Security
All data you submit to us are saved on servers within the European Union or the European Economic Area. We use technical and organizational security measures to protect the personal data that we may have collected from you against accidental or intentional manipulation, loss, destruction or against access by unauthorized persons. To make your communication with us as secure as possible, all information is sent in encrypted form. Our security procedures are continually enhanced as new technology becomes available. However, please note that it is not possible to guarantee 100 % security when data are transferred via the internet.

Your Rights
You are entitled to request information about your personal data hold by us at any time free of charge. If your personal data is incorrect, incomplete or irrelevant, you can ask to have the information corrected, blocked or removed. Please note, however, that we may not remove your data in case there is a legal storage requirement, for example according to book-keeping rules, or in case there are other lawful grounds to keep the data, for example due to unsettled debts.
