PERSONAL DATA YOU PROVIDE

In general, you do not need to provide personal information to access our websites. Your personal data (for example: your name, address, telephone number, email address, etc.) are stored only if you provide us with this information in order to use any of the services on our website (e.g. registering warranties/service, registering for a personalised web experience, signing up for the newsletter (e-mail only) or taking part in competitions). This data is then processed and used to only perform the requested services, and in compliance with the applicable data privacy laws. Any use of such personal data for other purposes (e.g. sending additional information about our company and products) is made only if you have given us your prior consent to do so. Your consent is also required to transmit your personal data to third parties outside the legally permitted circumstances.

TMSUK may contact you periodically by e-mail, mail or telephone if you agree to that contact to provide information regarding programs, products, services and content that may be of interest to you. In addition, some of the features on this website allow you to communicate with us using an online form. If your communication requests a response from us, we will send you a response via e-mail. The e-mail response or confirmation may include your personal information, including personal information about your name, address, etc. We cannot guarantee that our e-mails to you will be secure from unauthorised interception.

On some sites we use a “double opt-in system”. This means that when you first register with us, you are sent a confirmation email containing your login details. You then need to use these details to access our website. Your registration is not activated until you have logged in with your user name and password.

RIGHT OF ACCESS TO PERSONAL DATA AND WITHDRAWING CONSENT

You have the right to receive a copy of your stored personal data at any time. In addition, you are entitled to withdraw your consent with future effect at any time. Please use the address provided under Contacts to do so.

PROTECTING THE PRIVACY OF MINORS

Our websites are not addressed to children and young people under the age of 18. Children under the age of 13 may not transmit any personal data over the Internet without the consent of their parent or guardian. We ensure that we do not knowingly collect and store any personal data relating to this age group. Please contact us if you think we may have collected information from a child in this age group

LINKS TO OTHER WEBSITES

Our website contains links to and from other websites. This privacy policy only applies to this website, and doesn’t cover other websites we link to.

If you go to another website from this one, read the privacy policy on that website to find out what it does with your information.

If you come to our website from another website, we may receive personal information about you from the other website. You should read the privacy policy of the website you came from to find out more about this.

SECURITY

Toshiba has implemented technical and organisational security measures to guarantee the security of your personal information. Users’ personal information is stored in our secure networks and access is restricted to those employees and partners who are entitled to access our systems.

In areas where you enter data we work with the “Secure Socket Layer” (SSL) standard encryption system. Please note that your browser must support encryption protection. You can find this, for example, in all modern browsers. To ensure your browser is up to date, visit http://browsehappy.com/

Data is stored in databases which are protected against unauthorized access by security firewalls and software. Whenever your browser displays a closed padlock symbol at the bottom of the screen, or a similar icon/highlighted web address in a different browser, this indicates that your data is being transmitted in an encrypted format.

If the SSL system is not available for technical reasons, an error page is displayed to ensure that under no circumstances can your data be transmitted without encryption.

DISCLOSING YOUR INFORMATION

TMSUK may be legally compelled to release your personal information if we have a legal obligation to do so, or if we have to enforce or apply our terms of use and other agreements.

CONFIDENTIAL INFORMATION

Except for certain personal information that may be specifically requested in the Website for a specific purpose, TMSUK discourages the submission of confidential or proprietary information to this website. TMSUK does not generally request or require such information and has no obligation of any kind with respect to such information. Any such information you submit to this website via the Internet, email or other electronic means is not considered confidential and may be used for various purposes by TMSUK without limitation to include, but not be limited to, developing, manufacturing and marketing products.

DATA PROCESSING IN COUNTRIES OUTSIDE THE EUROPEAN ECONOMIC AREA

No personal data collected via this website is processed outside the European Economic Area without your prior consent.
