  • Name and job information such as job title, institution

Siemens Healthineers processes your personal data for the following purposes:

  • Planning, organization and implementation of your visit to Siemens Healthineers including the provision of services such as hotel bookings, transportation, meals
  • Communication regarding your visit

 


Compliance with legal requirements and guidelines

The processing of your personal data is necessary to meet the aforementioned purposes. Unless indicated otherwise, the legal basis for the processing of your personal data is Article 6 (1) (b), (c) and (f) of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Siemens Healthineers has a legitimate interest in the processing of your personal data for the purpose of providing and performing our services around your visit. If Siemens Healthineers does not collect the respective personal data, the purposes described may not be met by Siemens Healthineers.


Retention periods

We delete your personal data after a maximum period of two years after your visit unless statutory retention obligations under applicable law (such as tax or commercial law) require us to further retain your personal data.


Recipients and transfer of personal data

For the purposes mentioned above your personal data may be transferred to and processed by the following recipients:

  • Siemens Healthineers AG group companies
  • Service providers that support Siemens Healthineers, for example hotels, pick up services
  • If legally permitted to do so, courts, law enforcement authorities, regulators or attorneys if necessary to comply with the law or for the establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims

Sometimes the recipients of your personal data may be located in countries outside of the EU/European Economic Area (“third country”), in which applicable laws do not offer the same level of data protection as the laws within the EU/European Economic Area.

In such cases, Siemens Healthineers takes measures to implement appropriate and suitable safeguards for the protection of personal data by other means. In particular, Siemens Healthineers transfers personal data to external recipients in third countries only in case the respective recipient:

  • entered into EU Standard Contractual Clauses with Siemens Healthineers; or
  • implemented Binding Corporate Rules in its organization; further information about the Siemens BCR can be found here; or
  • in case of US recipients – the recipient is certified under the EU US Privacy Shield.

You may contact Siemens Healthineers for further information and/or copies of the safeguards implemented.
