What is NFC?
NFC stands for Near Field Communication. This refers to a secure standard in RFID technology specialising in short distances.
NFC is also used for various payment methods such as EC cards, credit cards or services such as Apple Pay and Google Play. The technology is often used in addition to Bluetooth. For example, when connecting radio headsets.
How does NFC work?
In the case of Deuter, slim, self-adhesive chips are used. These are passive, which means that the chip doesn’t store or transmit anything. The chips are coupled with information (a URL). As soon as a terminal device such as a smartphone sends out an NFC signal and is located close enough to the chip, it will reflect the stored information as an “echo”.
NFS is currently compatible with all android smartphones (tablets as well) of the OS 4.0 version or higher. With Apple, devices starting from the iPhone 7 are compatible.
Several devices are already able to read NFC without needing another app, as long as it is activated. Somewhat older devices in particular usually require an additional app.
What can the AViANT series with NFC do and how does it benefit me?
The NFC chips of the AViANT series lead to websites that offer the following functionalities:
By scanning the chip, you’ll immediately see whether it is an original Deuter product.
Learn all the information about the product before purchasing it. A page with product details, images, videos and customer reviews of other travellers will open on your phone. Also, you can ask Deuter your question directly.
After purchasing, you can register your product under your name. If you lose your luggage at the airport or on your trip, the person who finds it can scan the chip to find out your contact information.
It builds the foundation for all of our activities. Find out what advances we are making in terms of increasing sustainability in our entire supply chain.
After registering, Deuter will send you a free travel accessory!
Which data goes where, why, and are they safe?
No data are saved on the chip. This way, strangers won’t be able to read any data from the chip. All stored data (contact information, further registered products) are stored on an external database and managed by Deuter. These data will also not be passed on at a later time. Deuter only uses the data for marketing purposes (e.g. newsletter) after having received consent to do so.
The purchased product has already been registered. What do I do?
Or would you like to sell your registered product?
You can delete this registration for registered products via the link in the registration confirmation. If the link has expired, you can also cancel the registration via email.
