Legal information

Am I allowed to further process the technical documentation?

If the SIEMENS documentation is adopted into the customer documentation and if any further processing is done, you must ensure that the safety information is retained and remains visible. Moreover, the contractual agreements regarding the provision of documentation on data carriers apply.

What additional conditions apply to the provision of documents?

  1. The customer receives the technical documentation cited in the order confirmation (hereafter called “Documentation”) in electronic form or on a data carrier.
  2. The customer has the non-time limited and non-exclusive right, for the creation of technical documentation for his machines which are equipped with electrical equipment from Siemens and software described in the documentation, to modify the documentation in extracts, to reproduce it in altered or unaltered form, and to make it available on paper or data carriers to third parties as part of this technical documentation (hereafter called “Machine documentation”).
  3. The customer accepts sole responsibility when distributing the machine documentation in altered or unaltered form.  
  4. The customer shall not remove any copyright notices by Siemens from the documentation. If the customer modifies the documentation, however, he will add his own suitable copyright notice, indicating that he modified the documentation. The customer is not authorized to use the SIEMENS logo and will remove it from the parts of the documentation that are reproduced by him. If Siemens trademarks are used in the machine documentation, he will make appropriate notices to the effect that the trademarks are Siemens AG trademarks (for example, by adding a note such as “SINUMERIK is a registered trademark of Siemens AG”).
