Protecting the security and privacy of your personal data is important to Siemens; therefore, we conduct our business in compliance with applicable laws on data privacy protection and data security. We hope the policy outlined below will help you understand what data Siemens may collect, how Siemens uses and safeguards that data and with whom we may share it.
Through our Web sites, Siemens will not collect any personal data about you (e.g. your name, address, telephone number or e-mail address), unless you voluntarily choose to provide us with it (e.g. by registration, survey), respectively, provide your consent, or unless otherwise permitted by applicable laws and regulations.
On our Web site we use Adobe Analytics and DemandBase in order to constantly improve the site, identify errors, and/or customize the information included in the site. For this purpose certain data is stored such as the Web site visited, including its metadata, the Internet pages referring to Siemens, the time at which the Web site was called up and the browser used.
In order to exclude data aggregation and analysis by Adobe Analytics occasioned by your visit to this Web site, please click here. This will set an exclusion cookie in your browser. While it contains no personal data, it enables Adobe Analytics to recognize your preference.
If you delete this exclusion cookie or change your computer, device, or Internet browser, you must set the exclusion cookie again.
When you do provide us with personal data, we usually use it to respond to your inquiry, process your order or provide you access to specific information or offers. Also, to support our existing or potential customer relationship with you:
We do not sell or otherwise market your personal data to third parties, except to Siemens affiliates, to service providers as described herein, or as set forth below under “Purpose Limitation”.
Other than information voluntarily disclosed, Siemens’ web sites are not currently configured to allow collection of personally identifiable information over time and across different Web sites about an individual consumer’s online activities.
Siemens will collect, use or disclose personal data supplied by you online only for the purposes disclosed to you, unless the collection, use, or disclosure:
Through your use of telecommunications services to access our Web site, your communications data (e.g. Internet protocol address) or utilization data (e.g. information on the beginning, end and extent of each access, and information on the telecommunications services you accessed) are technically generated and could conceivably relate to personal data. To the extent that there is a compelling necessity, the collection, processing and use of your communications or utilization data will occur and will be performed in accordance with the applicable data privacy protection legal framework.
When you access our Web sites, we may automatically (i.e., not by registration) collect non-personal data (e.g. type of Internet browser and operating system used, domain name of the Web site from which you came, number of visits, average time spent on the site, pages viewed). We may use this data and share it with our worldwide affiliates or third parties on our behalf to monitor the attractiveness of our Web sites and improve their performance or content, as well as to tailor content for you.
In addition, we may advertise using remarketing technology. In doing so, a third-party will place or read a unique ad-serving cookie on your computer or device and will use non-personal information about your browser and your activity at this site to serve ads on their content network. The ad-serving cookie is a persistent cookie. Please click here for more information about remarketing or to opt-out of the remarketing cookie.
When you view one of our Web sites, we may store some data on your computer or device in the form of a "cookie" to automatically recognize your computer or device next time you visit. Cookies can help us in many ways, for example, by allowing us to tailor a Web site to better match your interests or to store your password to save you having to re-enter it each time. If you do not wish to receive cookies, please configure your Internet browser to erase all cookies from your device or computer hard drive, block all cookies or to receive a warning before a cookie is stored.
Siemens will not knowingly collect personal data from children without insisting that they seek prior parental consent if required by applicable law. We will only use or disclose personal data about a child to the extent permitted by law, to seek parental consent pursuant to local law and regulations or to protect a child. The definition of "child" or "children" should take into account applicable laws as well as national and regional cultural customs.
At this time Siemens web sites do not recognize “Do Not Track” browser signals.
To protect your personal data against accidental or unlawful destruction, loss or alteration and against unauthorized disclosure or access, Siemens uses technical and organizational security measures.
Siemens Web sites contain links to other Web sites. Siemens is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of other Web sites.
Siemens will respond to reasonable requests to review your personal data and to correct, amend or delete any inaccuracies. If you have any questions or comments about the Siemens Data Privacy Protection Policy (e.g. to review and update your personal data), please click on "Contact" and send us your questions and feedback. As the Internet matures, so will our Data Privacy Protection Policy. We will post changes to our Data Privacy Protection Policy on this page. Please check this page regularly to keep up-to-date.
