Information about the Alloy Wizard and the processing of your data

Using the Alloy Wizard, you can select our Wieland portfolio on the basis of the values entered, such as strength, bendability and other physical properties, and compare your results online.

You also have the option of requesting a standard data sheet and/or a dynamic data sheet. In the dynamic data sheet the results of the individual online search are summarized and displayed. Personal data is not included here, only a comparison of products.

Data export: In order to export the selected data sheets by e-mail, it is necessary to enter the contact data marked with *. Further information is voluntary. This gives you the opportunity to choose whether and by which department you would like to be contacted and whether we may send you information from the Wieland Group about products and services by e-mail with your consent. This information is of course voluntary and can be revoked at any time in the future. The information you provide will be made available to our technical marketing department and the responsible account manager and stored in our own secure database. This makes it easier for our experts to answer technical questions.

1. Data processing for enquiries

If you send us inquiries via the AlloyWizard form next to the request for the data sheet, your data from the form including the contact details you entered there will be stored by us for the purpose of processing the inquiry and in the event of follow-up questions. These data will not be passed on to third parties without your consent. Data processing for the purpose of establishing contact with us and answering your queries is carried out in accordance with Art. 6 (1) 1st sentence point a) GDPR on the basis of your voluntary consent. The personal data collected by us for the use of the contact and enquiry forms will be deleted after your enquiry has been processed. This is the case if it can be inferred from the circumstances that the facts in question have been conclusively clarified and provided that there are no legal obligations to retain them.

We also use this for the confirmation e-mail in the double opt-in procedure to check whether the owner of the e-mail address has authorised receipt of the newsletter.

You can unsubscribe at any time, for example via a link at the end of each newsletter or message from us. Alternatively, you can also send your unsubscribe request at any time to newsletter@wieland.com by e-mail. A passing on of the conveyed data takes place only to our technical service providers and partner enterprises, provided that we use these for the technical completion of the newsletter and/or Whitepaper dispatch. After cancellation of the newsletter, the e-mail address will be deleted both from our servers and from the servers of the service provider.
