We collect your data for a number of specific purposes:


When contacting Orion Laser Tech by email, telephone, social media, or using the contact form on our website, we may receive personal data, such as: your first and last name, email address, telephone number, country, and/or social media account name. We will process this data in order to respond to your message and offer our services. This data and/or correspondence is stored for a period of 5 years, allowing us to verify the contents of our previous contact.

Would you like to receive a quote? If yes, we will process your company and/or personal data to prepare and send you a quote. Due to legal obligations, we store our quotes for a period of 7 years.


If an agreement is made resulting from your use of our services, we will process your personal data for the purpose of customer and order management (e.g. customer administration, order execution, communication, delivery, invoicing, accounting). In doing so, we assign a customer number, quote number, and invoice number to your customer profile. We will process this data as long as you are a customer, meaning we will process your customer profile until you inform us you no longer wish to use our services.
