Q.ANT GmbH, a mem­ber of the TRUMPF Group, thanks you for visi­t­ing our inter­net site and for your inte­rest in our com­pa­ny and our pro­ducts and ser­vices. Pro­tec­ting your per­so­nal data while it is being pro­ces­sed is important to us during the ent­i­re busi­ness pro­ce­du­re, and we want you to feel secu­re when visi­t­ing our inter­net sites. In the fol­lowing, we will exp­lain which infor­ma­ti­on we collect on our web­sites during your visit and how that infor­ma­ti­on will be used. You can find our con­ta­ct infor­ma­ti­on in the imprint (legal notice).

Data Protection Coordinator

Our Data Pro­tec­tion Coor­di­na­tor is avail­ab­le for any con­cerns you may have about the pro­tec­tion of per­so­nal data. Plea­se direct tho­se con­cerns to the fol­lowing email address:

Personal data

Per­so­nal data” means all infor­ma­ti­on which rela­tes to an iden­ti­fied or iden­ti­fia­ble natu­ral per­son. This inclu­des infor­ma­ti­on such as your cor­rect name, your address, your tele­pho­ne num­ber and your date of birth. Infor­ma­ti­on which does not direct­ly rela­te to your actu­al iden­ti­ty, such as your favo­ri­te web­sites or the num­ber of site users, is not per­so­nal data.

Your rights

Under sta­tu­to­ry regu­la­ti­ons, you may demand that we pro­vi­de you with infor­ma­ti­on about your per­so­nal data, or that we rec­ti­fy, era­se, or restrict the pro­ces­sing of tho­se data. On request, we will pro­vi­de you with your data in a struc­tu­red, com­mon and machi­ne-read­a­ble for­mat. If we are using your data based on your con­sent, you may revo­ke that con­sent at any time. As soon as you do, we will no lon­ger use your data for that pur­po­se. If we have a legi­ti­ma­te inte­rest in pro­ces­sing your data, you may also con­ta­ct us to object to such pro­ces­sing. In this case, we will stop pro­ces­sing your data unless we must con­ti­nue to store them due to com­pul­so­ry rea­sons which over­ri­de your inte­rest in objec­ting, or unless the pro­ces­sing ser­ves to pur­sue legal claims. If we are pro­ces­sing per­so­nal data for direct mar­ke­ting, you may object to such pro­ces­sing at any time without giving rea­sons. In this case, we will stop pro­ces­sing the data for direct mar­ke­ting. Natu­ral­ly, you may always con­ta­ct the com­pe­tent super­vi­so­ry aut­ho­ri­ties as well.

You will find sup­ple­men­ta­ry infor­ma­ti­on in accordance with Art. 13 GDPR

Erasure of data

As soon as your data are no lon­ger nee­ded for the afo­re­men­tio­ned pur­po­ses, inclu­ding bil­ling, they will be era­sed. Plea­se be awa­re that when data are era­sed, they will be only blo­cked at first, then final­ly era­sed only after a cer­tain amount of time has pas­sed, to avoid erasing them acci­dent­al­ly or to avoid inten­tio­nal dama­ges. For tech­ni­cal rea­sons, data will be dupli­ca­ted in data back­up files or through ser­vice mir­ro­ring as appro­pria­te. Such copies will also be era­sed only after a cer­tain time delay due to tech­ni­cal reasons.

Using and forwarding personal data

The per­so­nal data you pro­vi­de will be used by us only for a spe­ci­fic pur­po­se, such as to tech­ni­cal­ly admi­nis­ter the web­sites and to ful­fil your requests and deman­ds: nor­mal­ly, there­fore, to exe­cu­te the con­tract we have con­clu­ded with you or to ans­wer your questions.

Your per­so­nal data will only be for­war­ded, sold or other­wi­se trans­mit­ted to third par­ties to the extent descri­bed in this pri­va­cy state­ment. Data is used wit­hin the TRUMPF Group or order pro­ces­sors are used for more effec­ti­ve management.

Visiting our website

Collecting and processing personal data

Whenever our web­sites are visi­ted, data will be collec­ted in log files, and through search engi­nes and forms. If you visit our web­sites, our web­ser­ver will per­ma­nent­ly store the fol­lowing as a stan­dard pro­ce­du­re for pur­po­ses of system secu­ri­ty: the con­nec­tion data for the inqui­ring com­pu­ter; which of our web­sites you have visi­ted; the data and dura­ti­on of the visit; the reco­gni­ti­on data of the brow­ser and ope­ra­ting system used; and the web­site from which you visi­ted us. Per­so­nal data bey­ond this, such as your name, address, tele­pho­ne num­ber or email address, will not be collec­ted unless you pro­vi­de that infor­ma­ti­on vol­un­ta­ri­ly during regis­tra­ti­on, a sur­vey or a con­test, to exe­cu­te a con­tract, or to request infor­ma­ti­on. The stored data will be used to track any misu­se on the web ser­ver and then era­sed. The time of the last log­in will also be used during the sales pitch, as per­mit­ted by law.

Use of cookies

We use ses­si­on coo­kies on our web­sites, which place data in your browser’s memo­ry for tech­ni­cal ses­si­on con­trol. They will be era­sed when you clo­se your brow­ser at the latest. Coo­kies con­tain no per­so­nal data and will beco­me mea­ningless when you lea­ve our web­sites. If you choo­se to have no coo­kies pla­ced on your com­pu­ter, you will still have access to a lar­ge part of our web­sites. Howe­ver, under cer­tain cir­cum­s­tan­ces you may not be able to use some func­tions or are­as of the page. We must also point out that brow­sers nor­mal­ly have func­tions to mana­ge cookies.

Google Analytics

We use the tool Goog­le Ana­ly­tics from Goog­le (Goog­le Ire­land Limi­ted, Gor­don House, Bar­row Street, Dub­lin 4, Irland).

Goog­le Ana­ly­tics works with text files which are stored on your device (coo­kies) to gain infor­ma­ti­on about your web­site use.

Goog­le uses this infor­ma­ti­on on our behalf to pro­vi­de us with eva­lua­tions of web­site use, reports about acti­vi­ties on the web­site, and other services.

The data the coo­kies collect about your web­site use is nor­mal­ly trans­mit­ted to a Goog­le ser­ver in the USA for ana­ly­sis and stored the­re. Tho­se data will not be com­bi­ned with other data about you which might have been stored in the Goog­le database.

We also use the mas­king func­tion “anony­mi­zeIP.” This means your IP address will be trun­ca­ted wit­hin the EU befo­re it is trans­fer­red to the Goog­le ser­ver in the USA. Only in rare cases will the com­ple­te IP address be trans­mit­ted, then trun­ca­ted on the ser­vers in the USA.

You can pre­vent this pro­ces­sing by taking the fol­lowing mea­su­res: It is pos­si­ble to chan­ge your brow­ser set­tings so that no coo­kies will be stored. Howe­ver, this might mean that our web­site will not be ful­ly func­tio­n­al. You can also pre­vent the data collec­tion by using a brow­ser add-on from Goog­le. You’ll find the add-on here:

As an alter­na­ti­ve to the brow­ser add-on (perhaps if you use a smart­pho­ne and tablets), you can pre­vent the data collec­tion by Goog­le Ana­ly­tics by cli­cking here. This will place a coo­kie which will pre­vent data collec­tion. If you revi­sit our web­site with ano­t­her device or brow­ser, or if you have dele­ted your coo­kies, you will need to place that coo­kie again.
