1.    Processing of your Personal Data

Kust Elektronik GmbH may collect and process Personal Data, such as your identification and contact details and information relating to your surfing behaviour, as part of its activities and dealings with you.

You may be asked to provide your Personal Data anytime you are in contact with KUST Elektronik GmbH, for example when you request catalogues of our products and services, register or subscribe to our newsletters or other communications from us, order our products and services or access to our website.

KUST Elektronik GmbH requires this Personal Data to carry out its business activities and fulfil its legal and contractual obligations, such as for example:

  • after sale services, maintenance and helpdesk support;
  • fraud prevention and other legal requirements imposed on us; and
  • improvement of our website and other online services.

You are not required to provide your Personal Data we request from you, but in some cases, we may not be able to provide you with our products or services, or respond to any queries you may have without processing your Personal Data.

In some cases, KUST Elektronik GmbH may ask your consent to process your Personal Data for the purposes as specified to you, in which case you may withdraw such consent at any time.  Yokogawa may also process Personal Data based on other legal grounds such as for compliance with its legal or regulatory obligations,  in order to perform the contract which you are a party to, to protect your vital interests or those of another individual, or for its own legitimate interests unless overweighed by your interests or fundamental rights and freedom.

The period for which KUST Elektronik GmbH will use and store your Personal Data will depend on the type of Personal Data to be processed and will be communicated to you on a case by case basis. In no case will the Personal Data be kept for longer than necessary to fulfill the specified purposes and it shall be removed after that period, unless it is legally obliged to retain it for a longer period.

3.    Transfer of your Personal Data outside the EEA and personal data storage

Your personal data will be stored on our secure servers at our offices and those of our service providers, which are located in the EEA or in the U.S. and other countries which may not have a level of data protection law equivalent to that of your country. We ensure the security of your personal data by putting in place appropriate technical and organisational measures to protect it from accidental loss, theft, misuse, alteration and unauthorized access or disclosure, and unlawful or accidental destruction. We also take steps to ensure all our subsidiaries, agents, affiliates and suppliers employ adequate levels of security.

KUST Elektronik GmbH may provide access to your Personal Data or transfer it to:

  • its affiliated companies;
  • subcontractors and other services providers involved in the provision of our products and services (including packaging and transportation companies, financial institutions and insurance companies);
  • public authorities when required to make such disclosure pursuant to applicable laws and regulations;
  • to prospective or actual purchasers in the framework of any business operations affecting our group, such as mergers and acquisitions.

When such access or transfer is made to a country outside the EEA not offering an adequate level of data protection, it shall only take place pursuant to your explicit consent or another applicable derogation for specific access or transfer, or where more systematic and large scale access or transfer must take place, on the basis of a contract embodying the relevant EU standard contractual clauses (“SCC”) and entered into between the data exporter and the data importer (the applicable SCC are available at http://ec.europa.eu/justice/data-protection/international-transfers/transfer/index_en.htm). You may obtain a copy of this contract upon request sent to the address below. We reserve the right to redact any confidential and/or commercial information contained therein prior to communication to you.
