2. Registration on the myNORD Customer Portal.

(1) The “https://www.mynord.com” internet portal (hereinafter referred to as myNORD portal) is aimed at guest users as well as approved registered users.

(2) All users can use the myNORD portal to find information about our products, configure them, edit configurations, save and print them. Registered users may use the product configurator and/or product search to generate a datasheet and/or price quote (when included as part of approved access rights). By further clicking the “Create new quote” button or the “add new line item” button, they may add products to a project. A completed product configuration is saved to their quote dashboard. Configurations created this way remain non-binding and do not represent an offer or order by the customer.

(3) Furthermore, with the integration of the NORD DRIVESYSTEMS Parts Shop (hereinafter referred to as e-shop) into the myNORD portal, all users can obtain information on spare parts for the drive they are interested in as well as about other products from NORD. Registered users can also order them via a secured checkout process.

(4) Users may request registered access via our online registration process with truthful information provided for their name, company, e-mail, telephone number, address, and when available, their NORD account number and their tax ID, as well as an individually selected password. Afterwards, the user receives a confirmation by e-mail to the supplied address including an authentication link. After the user has confirmed via this link we will check the provided information for the purpose of an account activation which includes applicable and specific access rights. After account activation, the user receives a notification email. After usage of the login data and the password, the user is a registered user and can use the myNORD portal and e-shop for quoting and order processes (if approved for those specific security rights). Registered users must inform us immediately about later changes to their information.

(5) Users have no right to their registration. We are entitled to rescind an approved registration at any time. This may be the case if we discover that the user provided incomplete or wrong data for the registration, violates these terms of use or is no longer entitled to usage. We reserve the right to check the usage authorization by sending another confirmation e-mail.

(6) Registered users must maintain secrecy with their login data, particularly the password.

(7) The user data required for registration is collected and can be submitted, for example, to shipping companies and/or financial service providers as far as this is necessary for the execution of an online order. The user hereby expressly agrees to this data transfer.

6. Rights of the registered user, e-shop content and availability

(1) Registered users are granted a simple, non-exclusive and non-transferable license for using the myNORD portal and the e-shop in the course of their job-related activities. (2) We are entitled to modify, supplement, restrict and delete all areas of the myNORD portal and e-shop or parts of them, or to discontinue publication temporarily or permanently at our own discretion.

(3) The myNORD portal and the e-shop can only be used within the current state of technology. Technical faults within the power supply or transmission system, hardware or software errors, capacity constraints as well as safety or service interruptions may affect the scope of usage. For this reason, we do not guarantee that the myNORD portal and the e-shop will always be usable in its entirety.

(4) Likewise, we cannot guarantee the complete absence of computer viruses in the myNORD portal and the e-shop. For their own protection and to protect the NORD portal and the e-shop, each user is obliged to take their own proper safety precautions before downloading any material.

7. Products, binding order placement

(1) The display and configuration options of our products in the myNORD portal, and their display and availability in the e-shop do not imply a binding offer on our part. It should rather be considered as a request to the registered user to submit a binding order. The offered support functions are product-related – in the myNORD portal these are the tip texts or learn more information that can be viewed in the configurator, and in the e-shop these are the suitable spare parts for the respective NORD drive. They are not a substitute for individual consulting about the suitability in individual cases or the usage intended by the user. In this respect, the registered user is requested to also contact one of our responsible employees as needed.

(2a) The following shall also apply for the myNORD portal: Registered users may use the product configuration or product search to create a product datasheet or quote. A completed configuration is saved in the quote dashboard. Configurations created this way remain non-binding and do not represent an order by the customer.

Before submitting an order, the content including the customer data is summarized on an overview page. The registered user may adjust selected order data via the designated change fields. By clicking the “Send” button, the registered and activated user submits a binding order.

(2b) The following shall apply for the e-shop: After product selection by entering the serial number, browsing the catalog and/or using the direct part entry, the registered user can click the “Add to list” button to save the selected products in a favorite list or click the “Add to cart” button to add them to the shopping cart. In the catalog search or in the cart, the registered user can also find information on availability or the non-binding delivery date of the respective product. The registered user may change, empty, download and upload the cart content at any time. He can also download the content as a PDF file and print it.

Only the registered user can submit a binding order. The registered user may trigger the order process by clicking the “order” button. After the registered user has selected the billing and shipping address, preferred payment type as well as the shipping type, all data is summarized in an order overview where subsequent changes can be made via the designated change fields. After accepting these terms of use and the privacy policy, the registered user submits a binding order to us by clicking the “Order now” or “Pay now” button.

If the credit card payment type is selected, the registered user is then forwarded to the embedded payment page of our financial service provider Novalnet AG to trigger the credit card payment.

(3) After submitting the order, the registered user receives an automatically generated e-mail that confirms the receipt of the order and includes the order details (confirmation of receipt). This confirmation of receipt does not represent an acceptance of contract on our part. A binding order is only concluded, after our option, by sending an order confirmation or the ordered products.

(4) Registered users can save and/or print the content of their order directly after submission and use the “Order overview” function to display it at a later point in time.
