Data Privacy Statement
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: firstname.lastname@example.org
“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.
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.
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.
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: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de.
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.
You will find additional information about data protection with Google here https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy/.
Q.ANT GmbH takes all necessary technical and organizational security measures to protect your personal data against loss and misuse. Therefore, your data will be stored in a secure operational environment which is not accessible to the public. If you wish to contact us by email, we must point out that we cannot guarantee the confidentiality of the transmitted information. The content of email can be seen by third parties. Therefore, we recommend that you send us confidential information exclusively by post.
Orders in the online shop
We will use the data provided while ordering from the online shop to execute the order, and then store those data in accordance with statutory retention periods: ten years for tax purposes, for example. Furthermore, the TRUMPF Group will use the data for advertising purposes, if this is legally permitted without the data subject’s consent. You may object to such use at any time through the contact data given above.
Participation in lotteries
By participating in lotteries, the participant expressly agrees that TRUMPF will store the necessary data for the period of the lottery, and after that, to carry out the lottery. Participants also give their consent for their complete names to be published on the participating internet sites if they win. There is no claim to such publication. The TRUMPF Group will also use the data collected for the lottery to advertise products, exclusively as permitted by law. The data will not be forwarded to third parties.
Questions using the contact form
At various places in our website (under “Contact”), we give the visitor the option to ask us questions relating to our products. By clicking the button “Send,” you agree to have your data collected, processed and used. The data will be processed, stored and used to handle your request, and, for inquiries from the business environment (B2B), for advertising purposes, provided this is permissible without consent. You may object to such use at any time through the contact data given above. After their requests have been handled, we delete consumers’ data.
Analysis by wiredminds
Our website uses a counting pixel technology provided by wiredminds GmbH (www.wiredminds.de) to analyze visitor behavior. If necessary, data is collected, processed
and stored, from which user profiles are created under a pseudonym. Wherever possible and reasonable, these usage profiles are completely anonymized. Cookies can be used for this purpose. Cookies are small text files that are stored in the visitor’s Internet browser and serve to recognize the Internet browser. The collected data, which may also contain personal data, will be transmitted to wiredminds or collected directly by wiredminds. wiredminds may use information that is left by visiting the websites to create anonymized usage profiles. The data obtained without explicit consent of the affected person will not be used to personally identify the visitor of this website and will not be merged with personal data of the bearer of the pseudonym. Whenever IP addresses are recorded, their immediate anonymization takes place by deleting the last number block.
Permission for data collection, processing and storage can be revoked at any time with effect for the future under the following link.
