Privacy Policy and Data Protection Statement

Beurer North America, L.P.

Product Registration

Thank you for your interest in our Product Registration. Data protection is extremely important to our Product Registration team at Beurer North America, L.P., a Delaware limited partnership (“Beurer North America”, “us”, “our” or “we”). By participating in our Product Registration, you will provide certain personal data to Beurer North America through our Product Registration website. By providing personal data through our product registration page, you are consenting to the processing of your personal data by us. By providing additional personal data to us through our website after your initial registration for the Product Registration, you thereby consent to our use of such personal data.

We process your personal data such as your name, address, e-mail address and telephone number in compliance with applicable United States data protection laws. The purpose of this Privacy Policy and Data Protection Statement (this “Privacy Policy”) is for us to inform registrants in our Product Registration about the manner, scope, and purpose of the personal data that we collect, use, and process. In addition, this Privacy Policy will explain the rights of persons who submit their personal data to us.

Beurer North America, as the person controlling the processing of personal data for our Product Registration, has implemented certain technical and organizational measures to protect the personal data that your submit to us. However, online data transfers are, by their nature, associated with security vulnerabilities; we cannot guarantee absolute protection of your data.

This Privacy Policy may change form time to time.  Your continued use of the Product Registration website after we make changes is deemed to be acceptance of those changes, so please check the Privacy Policy on our website periodically for updates.

  • IP addresses;

We process this data for the following purposes:

  • to evaluate system security and stability; and

  • for other administrative purposes.

Our legitimate interest arises from the purposes outlined above for data collection and ensuring the functional reliability of our website. We may use the data that we collect for marketing purposes and for generally drawing conclusions about you. The data will be stored for 12 months, subject to legal obligations and considerations.

Alternatively, you are also welcome to email an unsubscribe request to unsubscribe@beurer.com at any time. You will receive such offers and materials only until you revoke consent.

4. Cookies

Our Product Registration website uses cookies. Cookies are text files which are transmitted to a computer system via an internet browser and stored there.  Your web browser may have a setting that prevents cookies from tracking your use of websites; however, we are not able to respond directly to “do not track” requests.

5. Rights of the data subject

You have the right to:

  • request information about your personal data that we process. In particular, you may request information about the purposes of processing, category of personal data, categories of recipients to whom your data has been or will be disclosed, the planned duration of storage, the existence of a right to rectification, erasure, restriction of processing or objection, the right to lodge a complaint, the origin of your data if we have not collected it, and about the existence of automated decision-making including profiling, and, where applicable, meaningful information about the details thereof;

  • immediately request the rectification of inaccurate or incomplete personal data relating to you stored by us;

  • request the restriction of processing of your personal data in the event that you decline its erasure and we no longer need the data but you require it for the establishment, exercise, or defense of legal claims;

  • receive the personal data relating to you that you have provided to us in a structured, established, and machine-readable format, or to request the transfer of the same to another controller;

  • at any time revoke any consent you have provided to us, which will result in us no longer continuing to process the data to which this consent relates, and

6. Right to object

If your personal data is processed based on legitimate interests you may submit an objection to the processing of your personal data if there are reasons to do so arising from your particular situation, or if the objection relates to direct advertising. In the latter case, you have a general right to object, which we will implement without requiring a particular situation to be stated.

If you would like to exercise your right to revoke consent or to object, it is sufficient to send an e-mail to unsubscribe@beurer.com to do so.

7. Data security

During your visit to our website, we generally use SSL (Secure Socket Layer) process in conjunction with the highest level of encryption supported by your browser. This is generally 256-bit encryption. If your browser does not support 256-bit encryption, we will use 128-bit v3 technology instead. You can verify that information is being transmitted in encrypted format on the individual pages of our website by checking for the closed padlock icon in the bottom status bar of your browser.

We also use certain technical and organizational security measures intended to protect your data against accidental or intentional manipulation, partial or full loss, destruction or unauthorized access by third parties. Our security measures may be modified in line with technological developments.

8. Obligation to make data available

In the context of using the Product Registration website, you are required to make available personal data that is essential for service provision. Without this data, we are not able to provide the service.
