Privacy Policy

Personal data (usually referred to just as "data" below) will only be processed by us to the extent necessary and for the purpose of providing a functional and user-friendly website, including its contents, and the services offered there.

Per Art. 4 No. 1 of Regulation (EU) 2016/679, i.e. the General Data Protection Regulation (hereinafter referred to as the "GDPR"), "processing" refers to any operation or set of operations such as collection, recording, organization, structuring, storage, adaptation, alteration, retrieval, consultation, use, disclosure by transmission, dissemination, or otherwise making available, alignment, or combination, restriction, erasure, or destruction performed on personal data, whether by automated means or not.

The following privacy policy is intended to inform you in particular about the type, scope, purpose, duration, and legal basis for the processing of such data either under our own control or in conjunction with others. We also inform you below about the third-party components we use to optimize our website and improve the user experience which may result in said third parties also processing data they collect and control.

Our privacy policy is structured as follows:

I. Information about us as controllers of your data
II. The rights of users and data subjects
III. Information about the data processing

II. The rights of users and data subjects

With regard to the data processing to be described in more detail below, users and data subjects have the right

  • to confirmation of whether data concerning them is being processed, information about the data being processed, further information about the nature of the data processing, and copies of the data (cf. also Art. 15 GDPR);
  • to correct or complete incorrect or incomplete data (cf. also Art. 16 GDPR);
  • to the immediate deletion of data concerning them (cf. also Art. 17 DSGVO), or, alternatively, if further processing is necessary as stipulated in Art. 17 Para. 3 GDPR, to restrict said processing per Art. 18 GDPR;
  • to receive copies of the data concerning them and/or provided by them and to have the same transmitted to other providers/controllers (cf. also Art. 20 GDPR);
  • to file complaints with the supervisory authority if they believe that data concerning them is being processed by the controller in breach of data protection provisions (see also Art. 77 GDPR).

In addition, the controller is obliged to inform all recipients to whom it discloses data of any such corrections, deletions, or restrictions placed on processing the same per Art. 16, 17 Para. 1, 18 GDPR. However, this obligation does not apply if such notification is impossible or involves a disproportionate effort. Nevertheless, users have a right to information about these recipients.

Likewise, under Art. 21 GDPR, users and data subjects have the right to object to the controller's future processing of their data pursuant to Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f) GDPR. In particular, an objection to data processing for the purpose of direct advertising is permissible.

III. Information about the data processing

Your data processed when using our website will be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose for its storage ceases to apply, provided the deletion of the same is not in breach of any statutory storage obligations or unless otherwise stipulated below.

Server data

For technical reasons, the following data sent by your internet browser to us or to our server provider will be collected, especially to ensure a secure and stable website: These server log files record the type and version of your browser, operating system, the website from which you came (referrer URL), the webpages on our site visited, the date and time of your visit, as well as the IP address from which you visited our site.

The data thus collected will be temporarily stored, but not in association with any other of your data.

The basis for this storage is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f) GDPR. Our legitimate interest lies in the improvement, stability, functionality, and security of our website.

The data will be deleted within no more than seven days, unless continued storage is required for evidentiary purposes. In which case, all or part of the data will be excluded from deletion until the investigation of the relevant incident is finally resolved.

Cookies

a) Session cookies

We use cookies on our website. Cookies are small text files or other storage technologies stored on your computer by your browser. These cookies process certain specific information about you, such as your browser, location data, or IP address.  

This processing makes our website more user-friendly, efficient, and secure, allowing us, for example, to display our website in different languages or to offer a shopping cart function.

The legal basis for such processing is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b) GDPR, insofar as these cookies are used to collect data to initiate or process contractual relationships.

If the processing does not serve to initiate or process a contract, our legitimate interest lies in improving the functionality of our website. The legal basis is then Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f) GDPR.

When you close your browser, these session cookies are deleted.

b) Third-party cookies

If necessary, our website may also use cookies from companies with whom we cooperate for the purpose of advertising, analyzing, or improving the features of our website.

Please refer to the following information for details, in particular for the legal basis and purpose of such third-party collection and processing of data collected through cookies.

c) Disabling cookies

You can refuse the use of cookies by changing the settings on your browser. Likewise, you can use the browser to delete cookies that have already been stored. However, the steps and measures required vary, depending on the browser you use. If you have any questions, please use the help function or consult the documentation for your browser or contact its maker for support. Browser settings cannot prevent so-called flash cookies from being set. Instead, you will need to change the setting of your Flash player. The steps and measures required for this also depend on the Flash player you are using. If you have any questions, please use the help function or consult the documentation for your Flash player or contact its maker for support.

If you prevent or restrict the installation of cookies, not all of the functions on our site may be fully usable.

We also store the IP address of your computer and the date and time of your registration. During the registration process, we will obtain your consent to receive this newsletter and the type of content it will offer, with reference made to this privacy policy. The data collected will be used exclusively to send the newsletter and will not be passed on to third parties.

The legal basis for this is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a) GDPR.

The legal basis for this data processing is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b) GDPR.

Your data will be deleted once we have fully answered your inquiry and there is no further legal obligation to store your data, such as if an order or contract resulted therefrom.

Google Analytics

We use Google Analytics on our website. This is a web analytics service provided by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 (hereinafter: Google).

Through certification according to the EU-US Privacy Shield

https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt000000001L5AAI&status=Active

Google guarantees that it will follow the EU's data protection regulations when processing data in the United States.

The Google Analytics service is used to analyze how our website is used. The legal basis is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f) GDPR. Our legitimate interest lies in the analysis, optimization, and economic operation of our site.

Usage and user-related information, such as IP address, place, time, or frequency of your visits to our website will be transmitted to a Google server in the United States and stored there. However, we use Google Analytics with the so-called anonymization function, whereby Google truncates the IP address within the EU or the EEA before it is transmitted to the US.

The data collected in this way is in turn used by Google to provide us with an evaluation of visits to our website and what visitors do once there. This data can also be used to provide other services related to the use of our website and of the internet in general.

Google states that it will not connect your IP address to other data. In addition, Google provides further information with regard to its data protection practices at

https://www.google.com/intl/de/policies/privacy/partners,

including options you can exercise to prevent such use of your data.

In addition, Google offers an opt-out add-on at

https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en

in addition with further information. This add-on can be installed on the most popular browsers and offers you further control over the data that Google collects when you visit our website. The add-on informs Google Analytics' JavaScript (ga.js) that no information about the website visit should be transmitted to Google Analytics. However, this does not prevent information from being transmitted to us or to other web analytics services we may use as detailed herein.

YouTube

We use YouTube on our website. This is a video portal operated by YouTube LLC, 901 Cherry Ave, 94066 San Bruno, CA, USA, hereinafter referred to as "YouTube".

YouTube is a subsidiary of Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 USA, hereinafter referred to as "Google".

Through certification according to the EU-US Privacy Shield

https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt000000001L5AAI&status=Active

Google and its subsidiary YouTube guarantee that they will follow the EU's data protection regulations when processing data in the United States.

We use YouTube in its advanced privacy mode to show you videos. The legal basis is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f) GDPR. Our legitimate interest lies in improving the quality of our website. According to YouTube, the advanced privacy mode means that the data specified below will only be transmitted to the YouTube server if you actually start a video.

Without this mode, a connection to the YouTube server in the USA will be established as soon as you access any of our webpages on which a YouTube video is embedded.

This connection is required in order to be able to display the respective video on our website within your browser. YouTube will record and process at a minimum your IP address, the date and time the video was displayed, as well as the website you visited. In addition, a connection to the DoubleClick advertising network of Google is established.

If you are logged in to YouTube when you access our site, YouTube will assign the connection information to your YouTube account. To prevent this, you must either log out of YouTube before visiting our site or make the appropriate settings in your YouTube account.

For the purpose of functionality and analysis of usage behavior, YouTube permanently stores cookies on your device via your browser. If you do not agree to this processing, you have the option of preventing the installation of cookies by making the appropriate settings in your browser. Further details can be found in the section about cookies above.

Through certification according to the EU-US Privacy Shield

https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt000000001L5AAI&status=Active

Google guarantees that it will follow the EU's data protection regulations when processing data in the United States.

We use conversion tracking to provide targeted promotion of our site. The legal basis is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f) GDPR. Our legitimate interest lies in the analysis, optimization, and economic operation of our site.

If you click on an ad placed by Google, the conversion tracking we use stores a cookie on your device. These so-called conversion cookies expire after 30 days and do not otherwise identify you personally.

If the cookie is still valid and you visit a specific page of our website, both we and Google can evaluate that you clicked on one of our ads placed on Google and that you were then forwarded to our website.

The data collected in this way is in turn used by Google to provide us with an evaluation of visits to our website and what visitors do once there. In addition, we receive information about the number of users who clicked on our advertisement(s) as well as about the pages on our site that are subsequently visited. Neither we nor third parties who also use Google AdWords will be able to identify you from this conversion tracking.

You can also prevent or restrict the installation of cookies by making the appropriate settings in your browser. Likewise, you can use the browser to delete cookies that have already been stored. However, the steps and measures required vary, depending on the browser you use.

4.1 Our compliance with the term of delivery presumes the timely receipt of all data to be supplied by you, the granting of all necessary permits and releases, your observation of the agreed terms of payment and the performance of all of your (collaborative or anticipatory) obligations, which are preconditions to the performance of our obligations. If these preconditions are not met in a timely manner, the term of delivery shall be appropriately extended. The term of delivery shall be deemed to have been complied with when, within the term of delivery, the products leave our factory or you have been advised that the products are ready for shipment. 4.2 If you shall cause interruption or delay of our contractual performance, corresponding additional costs shall be borne by you, and the term of delivery shall be extended appropriately. 4.3 If we shall be unable to comply with the term of delivery because of strikes, lockouts or unforeseeable events beyond our control, including, without limitation, mobilization, war, insurrections, changes in law, acts of government, shortages of materials or energy, incorrect or late supplies in spite of careful choice of suppliers, business interruption or transportation difficulties, we may extend the term of delivery appropriately. 4.4 If we are responsible for any delay in delivery, you may, either cancel the sales contract after the expiration of a reasonable extension granted in writing, or claim damages up to a maximum aggregate amount not in excess of 5 % of the value of the undelivered Products, provided you can prove that you actually suffered a loss as a result of the delay.

Upon expiration of this period, we may store the Products in our warehouse or elsewhere, at your cost and risk. Upon such storage, our contractual obligation to deliver shall be deemed to be fulfilled, and the risk of loss of or damage to, the Products shall pass to you.

6. Notice of Defects and Damage in Transit

6.1 Obvious defects, incorrect shipments and shortages not caused by transport shall be reported to us in writing immediately, and in any event not later than 4 weeks after receipt of the Products. 6.2 If delivered by carrier, you may accept Products with externally visible damage or loss caused by transport only if you note such damage or loss on the freight documents, and this note is countersigned by the carrier. This also applies when internal or latent damage or loss can be assumed on the basis of the external condition of the shipment (e.g. damaged packing). Damage or loss caused by transport which is not externally visible shall be reported to the carrier immediately after discovery. In both cases you shall notify us immediately by telefax or email. 6.3 If you do not act in accordance with Sections 6.1 and 6.2, the Products shall be deemed to be complete and in conformity with the sales contract.

This authorization shall terminate when you default in your obligations, become insolvent, or when legal bankruptcy, reorganization or similar proceedings are filed or instituted against you. 7.3 Upon termination of your authority in accordance with Section 7.2, we may demand the temporary return of the Secured Products at your expense, in order to secure our title to the Secured Products. 7.4 At our request, you shall furnish us with all relevant information about the inventory of the Secured Products. You shall notify us immediately of attempts by third parties to levy upon and sell the Secured Products and support us, at your expense, in securing our title to the Secured Products. 7.5 If reservation of title is not permitted by the law of the country to which the Secured Products are delivered, we may demand from you other, equivalent security (e.g. security interest, charge, or guarantees). You shall be obligated to collaborate in all measures which are necessary and legally permissible to secure our claims, and to notify us immediately if third parties assert claims, liens, or charges which endanger our title to the Secured Products.

8. Acceptance

An acceptance test in our factory will be conducted only if previously agreed. 8.2 The Products are accepted and acceptance shall have occured, when the Products have successfully passed the acceptance test. Acceptance may not be refused because of minor defects, although such acceptance does not relieve us from our obligation to remedy said defects. 8.3 If you waive an acceptance test or do not attend the test, we reserve the right to conduct the test without you and you shall accept the test results. Additional costs resulting from the delay of such tests for reasons beyond our control shall be borne by you. In any event the Products shall be deemed accepted when you have taken them into service.

9. Warranty and Liability resulting from Defects

9.1 We warrant that the Products shall be free from defects in material and workmanship. Subject to the provisions of Section 6 above, if you report any such defect to us, we will, at our option, either replace or repair the Product free of charge. We shall decide whether defects will be repaired at the facility where the Products are used, or at the facilities of one of our representatives or subsidiaries or at our factory. If we decide not to repair the defects at the facility where the Products are used, you shall, at your expense, pack the defective products properly and safe for shipment and send them to the address designated by us. If we do not remedy the defect after the expiration of a reasonable period of time agreed to by you in writing or if several attempts at repair or replacement have failed, you shall be entitled either to reduce the purchase price by a reasonable amount which may not exceed 10% of the purchase price or to return the Product and demand a refund of the purchase price. 9.2 Unless otherwise agreed, the limitation period for warranty claims shall be 12 months from the date of acceptance. In any event, the limitation period shall terminate 15 months after Delivery. The limitation period for spare parts shall be 3 months after Delivery. 9.3 You shall immediately notify us of defects which appear and do everything within your power to keep the damage to a minimum. 9.4 We shall be obligated to remedy defects only if you comply with your contractual obligations. In particular, agreed payments must be made in accordance with the payment terms, and you may withhold payments only in an amount which bears a reasonable relationship to the defects which have appeared. 9.5 Defects resulting from normal wear and tear or from mishandling shall not be covered by this warranty. Our warranty obligation shall terminate if the Products are modified or repaired by you or third parties not authorized by us. 9.6 The following provisions shall apply to software: Only software defects which can be reproduced at any time shall be considered to be defects covered by our warranty obligation. We shall remedy software defects which substantially impair the use in accordance with the sales contract, at our option and depending on the extent of the defect, either by installation of an improved version of the software or by advice to how to eliminate such defects or to avoid their effects. We do not warrant that the software will function without error in each configuration you select, unless such configuration has been specified by us. 9.7 Save claims for damages the foregoing are your exclusive remedies in the event of a breach of warranty.

10. Industrial Property Rights and Copyrights

10.1 Should claims be brought against you for infringement of industrial property rights or copyrights (the ”Rights”) existing in your country based on your use of a Product delivered by us, we shall defend you against such claims and pay any costs or damages either adjudicated or allowed by us to the owner of such Right, provided that you notify us immediately in writing of such claims and all defences and measures to reach a settlement out of court are reserved to us. Under these conditions we shall generally obtain for you the right to continue to use the Product. If this proves impossible under economically feasible conditions, we shall, at our expense and at our choice, either modify or replace the Product so that it no longer infringes the Rights or take the Product back and reimburse you for the purchase price paid to us, adjusted to take into account the age of the Product. You shall not have any other or further claims arising out of the infringement of the Rights. We shall not be liable for infringement of Rights arising out of a modification of a Product delivered by us, use of such Product in a manner other than as specified in our publications or use of such Product in combination with other products not supplied by us. 10.2 We shall not be liable for infringement of Rights based on a Product manufactured by us in accordance with your drawings, designs and specifications.

Drawings and other documents relating to quotations shall be returned to us immediately upon request if no order is placed with us.

KSI SAM: Non-destructive testing and quantitative measuring of materials

For many years, we are supplying Acoustic Microscopes, Transducer, Pulser and Receiver worldwide. The well-known KSI quality is a guarantee for the best results.

The new patent based developed streamlined shape of the Transducer reduces turbulences, air bubbles and cavitations in coupling fluid significantly. This allows an increase of the scanning speed up to 50% with the correspondent electronics.
