MAXON Computer GmbH Privacy Policy

As per the resolution of the European Court of Justice (6 October 2015) the EU-US Safe Harbor Framework does not ascertain a valid legal basis for transferring personal data from Europe to the US. Hence the European Commission lined up a new EU/US data transfer agreement (US-EU Privacy Shield), which however is not yet in place.

Meantime, MAXON will continue to adhere to the rationale behind the principles of the U.S.-EU Safe Harbor Framework and the U.S.-Swiss Safe Harbor Framework as set forth by the U.S. Department of Commerce (the "Principles") with respect to the collection, use, and retention of personal information from European Union member countries and Switzerland. If there is any conflict between the policies in this privacy policy and the Principles, the Principles shall govern. This privacy policy outlines our general policy and practices for implementing the Principles, including the types of information we gather, how we use it and the notice and choice affected individuals have regarding our use of and their ability to correct that information. This privacy policy applies to all personal information received by the Company whether in electronic, paper or verbal format.
