Our services at a glance

Beyond purchasing your data backup and archiving tapes, we stand by your side with our comprehensive range of services, offering you a complete program in the areas of Tape Services, CD/DVD/USB Services, and disposal services.

Get advice now and benefit from our decades of experience!

We offer you a customized labeling and initialization service. The tapes are thus ready for immediate use. The labels are produced in-house and applied to the tapes. Initialization of all common tape formats, such as IBM 3592 and Oracle T10000, is also carried out by us. For all magnetic tapes and robot systems/libraries, we also provide barcode labels as cleaning and diagnostic labels.

Your benefits:
  • Fast and cost-effective
  • No resources required from your side
  • Customized initialization

There are many reasons why data carriers require identification. Marked cartridges, for example, ensure clear identification and registration. The information applied in this way is permanently engraved and cannot be removed. Upon request, we can label your tapes with names, company logos, or sequential numbering using laser etching, in a size of up to 100 x 100 mm.

The Library Pack is perfect for today's automated storage environments. In addition to protecting against shocks, dust, and moisture, this special packaging also eliminates the time-consuming and cumbersome individual unpacking of tapes. After removing the lid, the 20 tapes can be directly placed in the tape library. The practical handles and stackability make it easy to store the tapes in stock. Additionally, waste in the data center is reduced!

Possible data errors or damage to a tape should be detected before data is irretrievably lost. We thoroughly inspect and analyze your tapes. The tape status is meticulously documented, and the results are evaluated. If our tape analysis determines that your data is at risk, we offer you suitable solutions to recover your data.

Secure archiving often poses a major challenge, especially when data from various storage media, data structures, and data formats need to be archived in a unified data format or migrated to a new backup system.
This is where our migration and conversion service comes into play: We extract the data, transfer it from one platform to another, convert, structure, and process it so that you can ultimately archive the data on a single platform. Our migration service offers data transfer from an old tape generation to the current one in use.

Mechanical damage, moisture, smoke, or other disasters can lead to total data loss! Our highly qualified service team has effective options ready for rescuing the data in such cases. The recovered data is then copied onto new storage media, allowing for easy access once again!

Upon request, we erase your data in a way that it is no longer recoverable. So, protect yourself 100% from the risk of your stored information falling into the wrong hands or unintentionally violating data protection laws!

To ensure that all data is irreversibly destroyed when disposing of storage media, we undertake controlled and certified data destruction: The storage media are shredded and disposed of in compliance with legal data protection guidelines.

For particularly sensitive data, this destruction can be carried out on-site at the customer's location.

General Terms and Conditions

Effective 01/2022

These General Terms & Conditions and all legal relations between the parties shall be governed by the law of the Federal Republic of Germany to the exclusion of international uniform law, in particular the United Nations CISG Convention.

An order of goods by the customer is deemed to be a binding offer of a contract. Except where otherwise stated in the order, we shall be entitled to accept such contract offer within seven days after receipt by us. Our acceptance may be declared either via an order confirmation or via delivery of the goods themselves to the customer.

The customer’s conditions of purchase which are in conflict with these Terms & Conditions shall not be binding on us even if the customer has placed his order subject to his own conditions and we have not expressly rejected the content thereof.

Offers are made without obligation and subject to prior sale. The scope of the delivery shall be determined by the content of our written confirmation. The goods ordered shall be delivered in the customary state and condition. The right is reserved to effect technical modifications. Software products shall be subject to the terms of the particular licensing agreements of the manufacturer.

All prices are quoted strictly net ex warehouse Mainz-Kastel and are subject to confirmation. Invoicing shall be subject to the price valid on the day of delivery, plus the value added tax applicable at the time of delivery.

Terms of payment: direct debit or COD. Agreements on other terms of payment are possible after a check on credit standing by Creditreform. If the customer defaults on payment, interest on default will be charged as from the invoice date. If facts become known which indicate that the customer is in financial difficulty, outstanding invoices shall become payable immediately. Representatives and authorised persons shall only be entitled to collect debts with written power of attorney. Payments shall be credited to the most long-standing account payable. Cheques will only be accepted for payment subject to deduction of the usual collection and discounting expenses and subject to the customary reservations. In the event of repeated failure to observe payment periods we reserve the right to make further deliveries subject to payment in advance.

If reciprocal business relations exist between the contracting parties, OpenStorage shall be entitled to set off due claims against each other without any need of a separate agreement thereon.

Goods are as a basic rule shipped ex warehouse for the account and at the risk of the customer. The minimum order value is 350.00 euros. Where the order value is less, OpenStorage charges a flatrate service fee of 5.00 euros for packing, shipping and order processing. We charge 7.50 euros per shipment for COD deliveries; pallet shipments and deliveries outside Germany will be charged at cost.
The transport insurance cover is 750.00 euros per parcel. Transport insurance for a higher amount will only be taken out on the express instruction and at the expense of the customer.

Delivery possibilities shall in every case be subject to confirmation. Part-deliveries can be effected on request. Orders without statement of delivery time will be delivered as soon as possible. Occurrence of delay in delivery shall be subject to the relevant statutory provisions. A reminder from the customer shall however be necessary in every case. If we default on delivery the customer may require flatrate compensation for the resulting damage or loss. The flatrate compensation shall amount to 0.5% of the net price (delivery value) for each completed calendar week but a maximum of 5% of the delivery value of the goods delivered late. We reserve the right to demonstrate that the customer has incurred no damage or loss or significantly less than the above-stated compensation amount.

Cases of force majeure, e.g. strikes and lockouts etc. and disruptions to production and operations, transport disruptions – irrespective of whether in our company or at a supplier – shall in every instance release us from an obligation to adhere to a delivery date and shall entitle us to withdraw from the contract.

Returns shall only be accepted on the basis of express prior agreement and the issue of an RMA number. In this case the transport costs must be borne by the customer. The credit item for the returned goods shall be subject to deduction of the costs incurred by us.

The customer must notify us within a reasonable period of time of defects in the goods which he has found or should have found by inspection after delivery in the course of correct business operations.

If the customer fails to notify as above, he can no longer assert claims under warranty or for damages on grounds of the defect itself or resulting from a misapprehension as to whether the object was free of defects.

If such defect materialises at a later date, notification must also be given within a reasonable period of time; otherwise the customer may no longer, even in consideration of the defect, assert the claims specified in the second paragraph above.

To observe the rights of the customer it shall suffice to dispatch the notification in due time; this shall also apply if the notification does not reach OpenStorage. OpenStorage may not invoke this provision if the customer proves that OpenStorage caused the defect by wilful intent or gross negligence or concealed it (the defect).

We warrant that our products do not contain defects, including defects in the sense of the absence of warranted characteristics. In departure from section 438 (1) no.3 BGB (German Civil Code), the general period of limitation for claims on grounds of defects of quality and title shall be one year as from delivery date. The above-stated limitation period under commercial law shall also apply to contractual and extra-contractual claims for damages by the customer on grounds of a defect in the goods unless the application of the standard statutory period of limitation (under sections 195 and 199 BGB) results in a shorter limitation period in an individual case. This shall in any case be without prejudice to the limitation periods laid down in the product liability act. In other cases the customer’s claims for damages shall be governed exclusively by the statutory limitation periods.

Our warranty obligation for defective deliveries or services shall be limited, at our option, to rectification or the delivery of replacements. Our warranty obligation for goods which we have not manufactured shall be limited to the assignment of our warranty claims against the manufacturer. Replaced parts shall become our property.

The expenses necessary for the purpose of testing and after performance, in particular transport, travel, work and material costs (not installation and de-installation costs), shall be borne by OpenStorage, if there is in fact a defect present. If however a demand by the customer for the remedying of defects proves to be unjustified, OpenStorage may require reimbursement by the customer of the costs thus incurred.

Every warranty obligation shall lapse if rectification or other work is done on the defective products without our consent. We provide no warranty for defects which are due to normal wear and tear. Rectification work and replacement deliveries shall be covered by the same warranty as that for the original delivery or service, but only until expiry of the warranty period applicable thereto. If the remedying of the defects by rectification or replacement delivery is unsuccessful, the customer may require an appropriate reduction of the purchase price. If no agreement is reached on the reduction amount, the customer may also cancel the contract. OpenStorage may be liable for payment of damages – on whatever legal grounds – in case of wilful intent and gross negligence. In case of minor negligence OpenStorage shall be liable for damage or loss resulting from injury to life, the person or health or from the breach of a cardinal contractual obligation; in this case, however, our liability shall be limited to compensation for predictable damage or loss which may typically occur.

The thus resulting limitations of liability shall not apply if OpenStorage has fraudulently concealed a defect or has undertaken a warranty for the properties and condition of the goods. The same shall apply to claims on OpenStorage under the product liability act. The customer may only withdraw from or terminate the contract on grounds of a breach of obligation which does not consist in a defect if OpenStorage is responsible for the breach of obligation. A free right of termination by the customer is hereby excluded. In other respects the statutory prerequisites and legal consequences shall apply.

Delivery shall be made subject to retention of title. Claims resulting from resale shall be deemed assigned to us (extended retention of title). In case of combination with other goods or processing, the customer shall assign his retention of title or shared title to us. The customer must give immediate notice of attempted access by third parties to the assigned claims or rights. In case of current account the retained title and all the goods delivered by us and in the possession of the customer shall be deemed security for our claim to any outstanding balance.

We allow a period of 12 months as from the order date for call-off orders except where expressly agreed otherwise. Once the acceptance period has expired, we shall be entitled to the option of either delivering the goods and invoicing for them or withdrawing from the contract or requiring damages on grounds of non-performance.

Oral agreements shall not be effective in law.
By ordering or accepting the goods delivered by us, the customer acknowledges the binding effect of our terms and conditions of sale and delivery.
Individual and separately concluded agreements with the customer (including supplementary agreements, addenda and amendments) shall in every case prevail over the GTC. The content of such agreements shall only be effective on the basis of a written contract or a written confirmation by OpenStorage.
Legally relevant declarations and notices which the customer needs to submit to OpenStorage after conclusion of a contract (e.g. setting deadlines, notification of defects, declaration of withdrawal or reduced payment) shall only be effective if in written form.

The place of performance is our place of business in
55252 Mainz-Kastel, Peter-Sander-Strasse 13, Germany.
If the customer is a merchant within the meaning of the German Commercial Code (HGB), a legal person under public law or a special fund under public law, the exclusive place of jurisdiction – including at international level – for all disputes directly or indirectly arising from the contractual relationship shall be our place of business in Mainz-Kastel.

We shall however also be entitled to file a suit at the customer’s general place of jurisdiction.

You have the right to have data which we process based on your consent or in fulfillment of a contract automatically delivered to yourself or to a third party in a standard, machine-readable format. If you require the direct transfer of data to another responsible party, this will only be done to the extent technically feasible.

SSL or TLS encryption
This site uses SSL or TLS encryption for security reasons and for the protection of the transmission of confidential content, such as the inquiries you send to us as the site operator. You can recognize an encrypted connection in your browser’s address line when it changes from “http://” to “https://” and the lock icon is displayed in your browser’s address bar.

If SSL or TLS encryption is activated, the data you transfer to us cannot be read by third parties.

Encrypted payments on this website
If you enter into a contract which requires you to send us your payment information (e.g. account number for direct debits), we will require this data to process your payment.
Payment transactions using common means of payment (Visa/MasterCard, direct debit) are only made via encrypted SSL or TLS connections. You can recognize an encrypted connection in your browser’s address line when it changes from “http://” to “https://” and the lock icon in your browser line is visible.
In the case of encrypted communication, any payment details you submit to us cannot be read by third parties.

Information, blocking, deletion

As permitted by law, you have the right to be provided at any time with information free of charge about any of your personal data that is stored as well as its origin, the recipient and the purpose for which it has been processed. You also have the right to have this data corrected, blocked or deleted. You can contact us at any time using the address given in our legal notice if you have further questions on the topic of personal data.

Opposition to promotional emails

We hereby expressly prohibit the use of contact data published in the context of website legal notice requirements with regard to sending promotional and informational materials not expressly requested. The website operator reserves the right to take specific legal action if unsolicited advertising material, such as email spam, is received.

Some of our web pages use cookies. Cookies do not harm your computer and do not contain any viruses. Cookies help make our website more user-friendly, efficient, and secure. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer and saved by your browser.

Most of the cookies we use are so-called “session cookies.” They are automatically deleted after your visit. Other cookies remain in your device’s memory until you delete them. These cookies make it possible to recognize your browser when you next visit the site.

You can configure your browser to inform you about the use of cookies so that you can decide on a case-by-case basis whether to accept or reject a cookie. Alternatively, your browser can be configured to automatically accept cookies under certain conditions or to always reject them, or to automatically delete cookies when closing your browser. Disabling cookies may limit the functionality of this website.

Cookies which are necessary to allow electronic communications or to provide certain functions you wish to use (such as the shopping cart) are stored pursuant to Art. 6 paragraph 1, letter f of DSGVO. The website operator has a legitimate interest in the storage of cookies to ensure an optimized service provided free of technical errors. If other cookies (such as those used to analyze your surfing behavior) are also stored, they will be treated separately in this privacy policy.

Server log files
The website provider automatically collects and stores information that your browser automatically transmits to us in “server log files”. These are:

– Browser type and browser version
– Operating system used
– Referrer URL
– Host name of the accessing computer
– Time of the server request
– IP address

These data will not be combined with data from other sources.
The basis for data processing is Art. 6 (1) (f) DSGVO. The website operator has a legitimate interest to ensure an optimized service provided free of technical errors. Therefore server log files have to be stored.

Contact form
Should you send us questions via the contact form, we will collect the data entered on the form, including the contact details you provide, to answer your question and any follow-up questions. We do not share this information without your permission.
We will, therefore, process any data you enter onto the contact form only with your consent per Art. 6 (1)(a) DSGVO. You may revoke your consent at any time. An informal email making this request is sufficient. The data processed before we receive your request may still be legally processed
We will retain the data you provide on the contact form until you request its deletion, revoke your consent for its storage, or the purpose for its storage no longer pertains (e.g. after fulfilling your request). Any mandatory statutory provisions, especially those regarding mandatory data retention periods, remain unaffected by this provision.

The input data will only be used for the purpose of using the respective site or service for which you have registered.

Data transmitted when entering into a contract with online shops, retailers, and mail order

We transmit personally identifiable data to third parties only to the extent required to fulfill the terms of your contract, for example, to companies entrusted to deliver goods to your location or banks entrusted to process your payments. Your data will not be transmitted for any other purpose unless you have given your express permission to do so. Your data will not be disclosed to third parties for advertising purposes without your express consent.

The basis for data processing is Art. 6 (1) (b) DSGVO, which allows the processing of data to fulfill a contract or for measures preliminary to a contract.
