Privacy Policy

Fujitsu Privacy Policy

Fujitsu Asia Pte Ltd ("Fujitsu") is committed to protecting and respecting your privacy.

This privacy policy sets out the basis on which we will process any personal information that we may collect about you as a visitor to our website or premises or a contact at one of our customers or potential customers, suppliers or potential suppliers or other business partners or in any other cases where we specifically state that this policy will apply.

This privacy policy also sets out how we protect your privacy and your rights in respect of our use of your personal information.

Fujitsu may have a privacy policy or statement specific to particular local laws, products or services in which case such policy or statement shall supersede or supplement this privacy policy.

1. What personal information do we collect from you?

We may collect and process the following personal information about you:

  • Personal information that you give us: This is information about you that you give to us by filling in forms on our website (or other forms that we ask you to complete), giving us a business card (or similar) or corresponding with us by telephone, post, email or otherwise. It may include, for example, your name, address, email address and telephone number; information about your business relationship with Fujitsu; and information about your professional role, background and interests.
  • Personal information that our website and other systems collect about you:
    • If you visit our website it will automatically collect some information about you and your visit, including the Internet protocol (IP) address used to connect your device to the Internet and some other information such as the pages on our site that you visit. This is used to monitor the performance of the website and improve the experience of visitors to the website. Our website may also download "cookies" to your device – this is described in our separate cookie policy. As described further in the cookie policy, you can change the way in which we use cookies by changing your cookie preferences.
    • If you interact with us through social media services, we may be able to access certain information about such interaction, such as whether you have interacted with us through multiple social networks. We make reasonable efforts to ensure that the social media providers have permission from you to allow us to access certain information about you. Please note that we are not responsible for the manner in which social media service providers handle your personal information that they may collect from you, as this is their responsibility. For instance, our website may use plugins of social media networks such as Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, and Google+. If you use one of these plugins, these plugins are able to establish a direct connection between your browser and the sites of the respective social media networks. As this transfer takes place directly between your browser and the respective network, Fujitsu does not have any access, knowledge or control over any data sent or the use of this data within the respective social media networks. If you make use of a social media network and make content available to such networks, this is not covered by this privacy policy. Instead, the terms of use and privacy policies of the respective operators of those social media networks shall apply to any such content. We encourage you to read the privacy policies and terms and conditions of your social media service providers to understand how they handle your personal information.
    • Our website may contain links to websites of third parties who are not affiliated to Fujitsu. If you access such third-party websites by clicking on such links, we are not responsible for the way in which such third parties process your personal information that they collect.
    • We may make web-based platforms available to our partners and suppliers and such platforms may collect your personal information if you use such platforms. This privacy policy applies to such personal information collected during the registration process and/or the use of such platforms.
    • If you exchange emails, telephone conversations or other electronic communications with our employees and other staff members, our information technology systems may record details of those conversations, sometimes including their content for service improvement purposes
    • Some of our premises have closed circuit TV systems and other security and access management systems which may record you and certain information about your visit if you visit our premises, for security and safety purposes.
  • Other information: We may also collect some information from other sources. For example:
    • If we have a business relationship with the organisation that you represent, your colleagues or other business contacts may give us information about you such as your contact details or details of your role in the relationship.
    • We sometimes collect information from third party data providers or publicly available sources for anti-money-laundering, export control, credit rating background checking and similar purposes, and to protect our business and comply with our legal and regulatory obligations.

2. How do we collect, use and disclose your personal information?

Before we collect, use or disclose your personal information, we will notify you of the purpose why we are doing so. We will obtain written confirmation from you on your explicit consent, unless exceptions to consent under the local data protection law apply. We will not collect more personal information than is necessary for the stated purpose. We will seek fresh consent from you if the original purpose for the collection, use or disclosure of your personal information has changed.

We may collect, store and use your personal information for the following purposes:

  • to operate, manage, develop and promote our business (including our products and services) and, in particular, our relationship with the organisation you represent (if any) and related transactions including, for example:
    • marketing purposes, either directly from Fujitsu or from our partners
    • to customise your experience with Fujitsu when you visit our websites, remembering your preferences, or showing you more relevant ads
    • warranty processes;
    • product compliance processes;
    • accounting and billing / payment purposes (including to offer financing solutions to customers, together with our finance partners);
    • to operate, administer and improve our website and premises and other aspects of the way in which we conduct our operations;
    • to provide you with services or information that you may have requested;
    • to keep you informed and updated on relevant products or services you may be interested in;
    • to enable you to take part in our online assessments and surveys;
    • to manage and maintain the relationship with investors; and
    • to operate recruiting activities; 
  • to protect our business from fraud, money-laundering, breach of confidence, theft of proprietary materials and other financial or business crimes; 
  • to comply with our legal and regulatory obligations and bring and defend legal claims and assert legal rights; and
  • where the purpose is directly connected with an assigned purpose previously made known to you.

We may from time to time review your information held in our systems – including the contents of and other information related to your email and other communications with us – for compliance and business-protection purposes as described above. This may include reviews for the purposes of disclosure of information relevant to litigation and/or reviews of records relevant to internal or external regulatory or criminal investigations. To the extent permitted by applicable law, these reviews will be conducted in a reasonable and proportionate way and approved at an appropriate level of management. They may ultimately involve disclosure of your information to governmental agencies and litigation counterparties as described below. Your emails and other communications may also occasionally be accessed by persons other than the member of staff with whom they are exchanged for ordinary business management purposes (for example, where necessary when a staff member is out of the office or has left Fujitsu).

We will only process your personal information as necessary so that we can pursue the purposes described above and where we have a legal basis for such processing. Where our lawful basis for processing is that such processing is necessary to pursue our legitimate interests, we will only process your personal information where we have concluded that our processing does not prejudice you or your privacy in a way that would override our legitimate interest. In exceptional circumstances we may also be required by law to disclose or otherwise process your personal information.

3. Who does Fujitsu disclose personal information to and why?

We may disclose your personal information, where reasonably necessary for the various purposes set out above:

  • to the other members of the Fujitsu group of companies;
  • to your colleagues within the organisation that you represent;
  • to service providers who host our web services or other information technology systems or otherwise hold or process your information on our behalf, under conditions of confidentiality and security required by law;
  • business partners, channel partners, service partner, agents, suppliers and sub-contractors for the performance of any contract we enter into with them or you;
  • to our professional advisors
  • to a person who takes over our business and assets, or relevant parts of them; or
  • in exceptional circumstances:
    • to competent regulatory, prosecuting and other governmental agencies, or litigation counterparties, in any country or territory;  or
    • where we are required by law to disclose.

These disclosures may involve transferring your personal information overseas. In those cases, where we transfer your personal information to other members of the Fujitsu group or our service providers, we will ensure that our arrangements with them are governed by relevant legal mechanisms and safeguards including data transfer agreements, designed to ensure that your personal information is protected.

4. Accuracy of Personal Data

We will take reasonable steps to ensure that the personal information we collect about you is accurate, complete and kept up-to-date. It is important that you update us of any changes to your personal information (such as a change in your mailing address). From time to time, we may do a data verification exercise for you to update us on any changes to the personal information we hold about you.

5. How long do we keep your personal information?

We will delete your personal information when we no longer need such personal information, for instance where:

i. it is no longer necessary for us to retain your personal information to fulfil the purposes for which we had collected it; 

ii. we believe that your personal information that we hold  is inaccurate; or 

iii. in certain cases where you have informed us that you no longer consent to our processing of your personal information.   

Sometimes, however:

a. there are legal or regulatory requirements which may require us to retain your personal information for a specified period, and in such cases we will retain your personal information for such specified period; and 

b. we may need to retain your personal information for certain longer periods for product liability purposes or in relation to legal disputes, and in such cases we will retain it for such longer periods to the extent required.

Note that we may retain some limited information about you even when we know that you have left the organisation that you represent, so that we can maintain a continuous relationship with you if and when we are in contact with you again, representing a different organisation.

6. Protection of Personal Data

We have implemented appropriate information security and technical measures (such as data encryption, firewalls and secure network protocols) to protect the personal information we hold about you against any loss; misuse; destruction; unauthorised alteration/modification, access, disclosure; or similar risks. We have also put in place reasonable and appropriate organisational measures to maintain the confidentiality and integrity of your personal information, and will only share such information with authorised persons on a ‘need to know’ basis. We will dispose of or destroy documents (in physical or electronic form) containing your personal information in a proper and secure manner when the retention period of such information expires.

7. Withdrawal of Consent

If you wish to withdraw consent, you should give us reasonable advance notice. We will advise you of the likely consequences of your withdrawal of consent, e.g. without your personal contact information we may not be able to contact you to keep you informed of our forthcoming events or new product launches. Your request for withdrawal of consent can take the form of an email or letter to us.

8. What are your rights?

You have the following rights (subject to applicable local laws) in relation to the personal information that we hold about you:

  • to access your personal information, and some related information, under relevant data protection law;

  • to require us to delete your personal information in certain circumstances; 
  • to require us to restrict or block the processing of your personal information in certain circumstances (when processing is restricted, we can still store your personal information, but may not use it further);
  • to obtain from us your personal information, in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format in certain circumstances. Further, you may have the right to require us to transmit your personal information directly to another person (for instance a new provider) where it is technically feasible to do so; and
  • where we are processing your personal information based on your consent to such processing, to withdraw your consent at any time.

If you wish to exercise any of these rights (subject to applicable local laws), or have complaints about our processing of your personal information, please contact us as set out below. You can also lodge a complaint about our processing of your personal information with the body regulating data protection in your country.  

You may write in to us to find out how we have been using or disclosing your personal information over the past one year. Before we accede to your request, we may need to verify your identity by checking your NRIC or other legal identification document. We will respond to your request as soon as possible, or within 30 days from the date we receive your request. If we are unable to do so within the 30 days, we will let you know and give you an estimate of how much longer we require. We may also charge you a reasonable fee for the cost involved in processing your access request. If you find that the personal information we hold about you is inaccurate, incomplete or not up-to-date you may ask us to correct such information. Where we are satisfied on reasonable grounds that a correction should be made, we will correct such information as soon as possible, or within 30 days from the date we receive your request.

11. Automated Decision Making

We may use technology which tracks your use of our website and your interactions with us and which helps us to build a profile of your preferred products and information requests. If we do this, what this means for you is that you are more likely to receive offers and information that are tailored to your specific preferences, based on your previous profile activity.   

If we use automated decision making in respect of any specific service or product and such automated decision making produces legal effects concerning data subjects or similarly significantly affects them, we will provide information required by applicable laws in respect of such automated decision making.
