Status: December 2021

This Cookie Notice applies to the websites accessible under “” (the “website”).

This website uses cookies. Cookies are small files containing certain information that are stored on your device. Cookies are served either by Siemens AG or Siemens Industry Software, Inc. (collectively “Siemens”) – so-called “first party cookies” – or by third parties providing services to Siemens; such cookies are referred to as “third party cookies”.


Cookies are necessary to provide certain functionalities on a website, e.g., to maintain a language choice made by a user. Moreover, cookies enable the respective issuer (Siemens or a third party) to recognize that the website was previously called up by a certain end device, allowing the identification of returning visitors (or rather their end devices) and gathering information about their usage of the website and their presumed interests. This information is used to improve the website and to deliver relevant advertisement for Siemens products and services on the website as well as on third party sites.


Cookies can be assigned to four categories, depending on their function and intended purpose: absolutely necessary cookies, performance cookies, functionality cookies, and marketing cookies.

Strictly Necessary Cookies

These cookies are essential in order to enable you to move around the website and use its features, such as setting your privacy preferences, logging in or filling in forms. Without these cookies, services requested through usage of our website cannot be properly provided.


Strictly necessary cookies do not require consent from the user under applicable law. You may configure your web browser to block strictly necessary cookies, but you might then not be able to use the website’s functionalities as intended.


To the extent that information processed in connection with strictly necessary cookies should qualify as personal data in a given case, the legal ground for that processing is Siemens’ legitimate interest to operate the website.


Performance cookies
These cookies collect information about how visitors use a website, for instance which pages visitors go to most often, and how visitors move around the site. They help us to better understand a user’s behavior on our webpage. This is necessary to improve the user friendliness of a website and therefore enhance the user’s experience. Further information collected by performance cookies may include e.g.: internet browser and operating system used, the domain name of the website which you previously visited, the number of visits, average duration of visit, and pages called up.


In general, the information collected by these cookies is aggregated and can normally not be linked to a specific natural person. However, in certain cases the collected information can be linked to you directly (provided you disclosed your identity to Siemens, e.g., when creating an account or filing a request with us). To the extent that information processed in connection with performance cookies can, in a given case, be directly linked to you or otherwise qualifies as personal data, the legal ground for that processing is your user consent.


Functionality Cookies

These cookies allow the website to remember choices you make or information you enter (such as your username, language or the region you are in) and provide enhanced, more personal features. They are also used to enable requested functions such as playing videos. To the extent that information processed in connection with functionality cookies should, in a given case, qualify as personal data, the legal ground for that processing is the user’s consent.


Marketing Cookies

Marketing cookies (also referred to as targeting or advertising cookies) are used to deliver adverts on third party websites more relevant to you and your interests. They are also used to limit the number of times you see an advertisement as well as help measure the effectiveness of an advertising campaign.


Legal basis for the processing of personal data in connection with marketing cookies (if any) is the user’s consent.


Siemens AG and Siemens Industry Software, Inc. are jointly responsible for any personal data collected by cookies as described in this Cookie Notice and have entered into an agreement setting out their respective data protection responsibilities. A summary of the content of that agreement is made available upon request. In case of any request in connection with this Cookie Notice, please contact the Data Privacy Organization at

Facebook privacy policy


Used Facebook cookies: / fr (Lifetime 90 days)


Facebook pixels are small software  parts and almost invisible pixel-sized "dots" on our website that establish a connection between your visit to our website and Facebook. When the pixel is loaded, Facebook places a so-called "fr" cookie on your computer, which helps Facebook to offer you more personalized advertising, but also to evaluate and improve advertising. This cookie has a lifespan of 90 days.

Please note that when placing the "fr" cookie, Facebook is able to track your surfing behavior on other websites that have a Facebook pixel or Facebook social plugin installed.

Two types of cookies are used: persistent cookies and session cookies. A persistent cookie may help to recognize you as an existing user. A persistent cookie stays in your browser and will be read by LinkedIn when you return to LinkedIn sites or a partner site that uses LinkedIn Services (for example, sites that use sharing or job application buttons). Session cookies last only as long as the session (usually the current visit to a website or a browser session).
