Description of Service:

VirtualCAD.com provides a service to Manufacturers and Distributors of mechanical components, to enable them to offer 2D CAD Drawings and 3D CAD Models available from their website for download by their customers. The 2D/3D CAD files are provided in multiple CAD formats to multiple computing platforms and operating systems. Designers and Engineers incorporate these 3D CAD models in their designs. This and related functionality is considered the Service.

Although VirtualCAD makes a strong effort to create the CAD files as accurately as possible, it is not responsible for any inaccurate dimensions or size data and therefore, recommends that all users double-check all information pertaining to the part with the chosen manufacturer or distributor before designing with, or purchasing that part.

Unless explicitly stated otherwise, any new feature or enhancement to the current Service shall be subject to the TOS. You understand and agree that the Service is provided "AS-IS" and that VirtualCAD Inc. assumes no responsibility for the accuracy, timeliness, deletion, failed delivery or failure to store any data.

Privacy Policy:

Information Collected:

VirtualCAD clients are Manufacturers and Distributors. (Collectively called 'clients'.) However, we provide 2D/3D CAD files to their customers. (Collectively called 'customers'. Individually called 'user'.) Most clients require that their customers register to access the 2D/3D CAD files that are served by VirtualCAD. This registration is either handled by VirtualCAD, or the client.

When the client handles the user registration, VirtualCAD is provided with the user's email address with the download request.VirtualCAD will NEVER distribute that email address to ANY other party. It is used simply to communicate with the user if needed. All other information collected by the client would be governed by their individual Privacy Policies.

When VirtualCAD handles the user registration for the client, various pieces of information are collected. These are sent back to the client as a 'sales lead' and are then governed by that client's Privacy Policy. VirtualCAD does NOT distribute this information to ANY other party, except as noted below.

If client 'ABC' and client 'XYZ' both request that VirtualCAD handle the user registration, VirtualCAD maintains a SINGLE account for the user for both clients. Therefore, after registering for client 'ABC', the user will use the exact same account at client 'XYZ'. However, the same registration information will be sent to client 'XYZ' as a 'sales lead'. The benefit to the user is a single account to maintain and only a single registration step. The same information is provided to client 'XYZ' that would have been required had there been a completely separate registration process.

For research purposes, we may conduct online surveys. If a user chooses to participate, they will be prompted to answer a series of online questions. Individual responses are kept confidential. The aggregate data may be used as VirtualCAD deems appropriate.

Cookie Technology:

We employ cookie technology to help you download CAD models faster. When you request a CAD model, the file format, and any other required parameter, is defaulted using a cookie that was previously passed to your computer. A cookie is a string of information that is sent by a Web site and stored on your hard drive or temporarily in your computer's memory. This avoids the potentially time-consuming task of selecting your desired CAD file format, and other parameters, each time you request a model from VirtualCAD. We do not use cookies to identify you as an individual. We also use Cookies to provide the 'Remember Me' functionality at Login.

We Reserve the Right:

We reserve the right to change this privacy policy at any time, without notice. Since some users choose not to register in order to make use of the system, we can not contact them to notify them of the changes. We may opt to notify the users that have chosen to register. We do suggest that you check the policy periodically.

Questions and Concerns:

It is our goal to eliminate any questions or concerns you may have regarding our Privacy Policy or any other area of the VirtualCAD.com service. Therefore, please send your comments to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .
