Getinge does not warrant that access to this website will be available at all times, nor that this website or the server that makes it available is free of viruses or other harmful components.

By using this website you agree to the terms and conditions set out herein. Thus, you should carefully read this Web & Privacy Policy in its entirety before starting to use the website and periodically thereafter, as Getinge may make changes and updates hereof.

Forward-Looking Statements

This website may include certain forward-looking statements about future operations, performance or market conditions. Such forward-looking statements have been based on our views and expectations about future events only at the time the statements were made. There can be no assurance that such expectations will materialize. Since forward-looking statements involve assumptions and estimations that are subject to known and unknown risks and uncertainties, the outcome may differ materially from what is set out in the statements. We undertake no obligation to publicly update or revise any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise, except as required by law or stock exchange regulation.

Data Protection Notice

This data protection notice describes how Getinge, as the controller of this website, processes your personal data in connection with your usage of this website. 

What personal data will we process and why?

Depending on how you use the website and how often you visit, we may process different categories of personal data about you, such as your name, telephone number, email, IP address and cookies.

We will process the personal data that you submit to us for the purpose of answering questions and comments from you and to provide you with information that you have requested. Getinge has a legitimate interest in being able to respond to your requests. Considering that the personal data is submitted by you on a voluntary basis and your personal data is processed for the purpose of attending to a request from you, Getinge considers that its legitimate interest to be able to respond outweighs your privacy interest. 

In order to better understand the behavior and needs of the visitors of this website, we may also process your IP address, geographical location, language preference and information you provide to monitor the use of the website, to register traffic to and from the website and to look into and evaluate the users’ demography, geographical location, interests and behavior with regard to the Getinge website and current and future products. For the avoidance of doubt, the demography, geographical location, interests and behavior data are not linked to any specific individual person and the recording can be deactivated at any time in the browser settings. 

Getinge has a legitimate interest in being able to understand the behavior and needs of the visitors of the website. Since no sensitive personal data will be processed and the processing generally is for the benefit of the visitors of the website, Getinge has concluded that its legitimate interest to understand the visitors’ behaviors and needs takes precedence over your privacy interest.

Transfers of your personal data

Your personal data will be transferred to certain Getinge companies as well as to subcontractors and service providers who provide services related to this website, e.g. IT service providers that host, develop and offer support for the website and its functions. Your personal data will only be shared with these companies in order to respond to your request and to provide the website related services.

This means that your personal data will be transferred to countries located outside the European Union/ European Economic Area where Getinge and/or its service providers conduct business. Since these countries may have a lower level of protection than that within the EU/EEA, Getinge uses standard contractual clauses approved by the European Commission when transferring personal data to ensure a sufficient level of protection. The standard contractual clauses can be found via the following link: http://ec.europa.eu/justice/data-protection/international-transfers/transfer/index_en.htm.
