A name must be entered, the use of pseudonyms is not possible. We use the so-called double opt-in procedure to activate your user account, i.e. Your registration is not complete until you have confirmed your registration beforehand by clicking on the link contained within a confirmation email that has been sent to you for this purpose. If your confirmation is not received promptly, your registration will be automatically deleted from our database.
Date transmission in the event of contract conclusion for services and digital content
We only transmit personal information to third parties if this is necessary within the scope of the CAD models and technical data sheets and the request for a quote, i.e. to sales partners who assist you on site.
Service providers who are granted the technical permission to do so can also examine the information that you provided during registration. These service providers are order processing companies in some cases. Appropriate order processing contracts have been agreed to for this.

Within the scope of statistical evaluation, information is also processed on the basis of Art. 6, Para. 1, Item f of the DSGVO.

For important changes such as to the scope of the order or if technical changes are required within the scope of your configuration, we will notify you using the e-mail address or phone number that was specified during one-off registration without a user account or when a user account was created.
If you activate your user account, you will also receive information about our training program.
Your information is also stored for internal system-related and statistical purposes.
Duration of storage
The information is deleted as soon as it is no longer needed to achieve the purpose for which it was collected. As far as the information that was collected during registration is concerned, this is the case if the registration on our web site has been removed or modified.
For the data that is collected for fulfilling a contract (e.g. usage agreement for the provision and purchase of CAD models and technical data sheets) or for carrying out pre-contractual measures, and the information is no longer required to fulfill the contract, even after the conclusion of the contract, it may be necessary to store the contract partner's personal information in order to fulfill contractual or legal obligations.
Information which you enter during one-off registration without a user account is used for two years after it has been made available. Your personal information is then deleted. Deletion of your information that was entered during one-off registration without a user account can also be requested at any time before the deletion period has elapsed.
