Privacy policy

The issue of data protection and confidentiality is a topic we take very seriously and we follow the applicable national data protection regulations.

 

With this statement on data protection measures, we therefore want to provide you with information on the types of data that we may collect and how we use that data.

 

Storage and use of data

As a visitor to our website, you will remain anonymous. The data we store and analyze are used for statistical purposes only, for instance, to ensure the continuous improvement of our services.

We only collect and process personal data if you make use of specific services and we therefore require your data or if you have voluntarily given us your consent.

Unless we are subject to other legal commitments, we only use your personal data for the purposes for which you have given your consent.

Your personal data will only be shared by us with third parties if that is required in order to provide a service you have requested or if you have given your consent. If data have been released for use by EMD subsidiaries and if such permission involves data transfer to other countries, EMD will ensure that the data importer is placed under a suitable level of data protection commitment.
