Fujitsu and your personal data
As one of the leading providers of information products and technologies Fujitsu is committed to the use of state-of-the-art technologies in order to continuously improve the services offered to our customers and to protect the personal information of our customers, partners, suppliers, visitors of our web sites and employees effectively. For this we have made appropriate technical and organizational arrangements, for example, providing the option to encrypt e-mails or personal data submitted to our websites.
The term "personal information" comprises all information which allows or facilitates the identification of an individual.
You may access the public websites of Fujitsu, which are available in the Internet, without entering actively any of your personal details. In a few cases, however, we or our partners will need certain information from you in order to give you appropriate and comprehensive service. In such cases we would ask you to provide us with the necessary personal information, e.g. by registering with us. During the registration procedure we will obtain your consent to collect, store, process and transfer your personal data to third parties.
If you give us such details (e.g. name, address, e-mail, type and scope of use of Fujitsu products and services used by you) we will inform you in any case about how the data will be used or potentially transferred to third parties before you submit it. You can additionally also request to see our public list of procedures or view it online under the link http://www.fujitsu.com/fts/resources/navigation/imprint.html

- to protect against lawsuits; to prepare, negotiate and perform business transactions;
- to process public authority or court orders or otherwise due to legislation; or
- if the purpose is directly connected with an assigned purpose previously made known to you.
In addition, we will use a restricted amount of your personal information for the purpose of advertising as well as marketing and public opinion surveys (for a more detailed description of the extent and scope of such use of your personal information, please see the section 'advertising/marketing and public opinion survey').

Advertising/Marketing and public opinion survey
Fujitsu performs potential surveys either directly or in cooperation with a market research institute. Either Fujitsu or the market research institute in this context assesses several topics, e.g. the rating of products, designs, marketing measures as well as specific user interests and requirements regarding Fujitsu's products and services. Participating in the surveys allows Fujitsu to gather important information that can be used in the development of new products and services by Fujitsu. To the extent Fujitsu relies on the services of a market research institute, the market research institute will only act on behalf and as instructed by Fujitsu. Personal information collected in the context of the surveys will be used only by Fujitsu in order to further improve its own products and services in consideration of the information directly collected from you. Any additional use of your personal information for internal purposes of the market research institute is excluded as well as the transfer to any other third party.
You have the right to object to the use of your personal information for the purpose of advertising and marketing and public opinion survey at any time with effect for the future.
Fujitsu saves your personal data only for such time
- as may be required to meet delivery commitments and provide services within the contractual framework;
- as may be required to observe statutory archiving periods;
- as may be required to become active within a product liability context;
- as may be required to settle disputes and to enforce any agreements that have been reached; and
- as your account with Fujitsu is active and you have not marked it for deletion or its use by Fujitsu has been revoked by you.
