EU-U.S Privacy Shield

Siemens PLM Software participates in, complies with, and has certified its adherence to the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework as set forth by the U.S. Department of Commerce regarding the collection, use, and retention of personal information transferred from the European Union and the United Kingdom to the United States. Siemens PLM Software is committed to subjecting personal data received from European Union (EU) member countries and the United Kingdom in reliance on the Privacy Shield Framework and to the Framework’s applicable principles. If there is any conflict between the terms in this privacy policy and the Privacy Shield Principles, the Privacy Shield Principles shall govern. To learn more about the Privacy Shield Framework, and to view our certification, visit the U.S. Department of Commerce’s Privacy Shield

 

Siemens PLM Software is responsible for the processing of personal data it receives under the Privacy Shield Framework and subsequently transfers to a third party acting as an agent on its behalf. We may transfer personal data to a third party acting as an agent for Siemens PLM Software for limited and specified purposes without consent if the third party: (i) has certified to the Privacy Shield Principles, (ii) is subject to laws meeting the minimum requirements of the EU Directive on Data Protection, or (iii) has entered into an agreement with Siemens PLM Software in which the third party agrees to provide the same level of protection as required by the Privacy Shield Principles. Upon notice from the third-party agent that it does not comply with its privacy obligations, we will take commercially reasonable and appropriate steps to prevent or stop unauthorized processing of personal data by that third party. However, Siemens PLM Software acknowledges that it remains potentially liable under the Principles for the actions of its agents unless Siemens PLM Software proves that it is not responsible for the event giving rise to the damage.

 

With respect to personal data received or transferred pursuant to the Privacy Shield Framework, Siemens PLM Software is subject to the regulatory investigation and enforcement powers of the U.S. Federal Trade Commission. In certain situations, Siemens PLM Software may be required to disclose personal data in response to lawful requests by public authorities, including meeting national security or law enforcement requirements.

 

Siemens PLM Software enters into agreements with our customers that request services from us with respect to and/or provide us with personal information for us to provide services. In such cases, Siemens PLM Software fulfills such requests for services from such customers based on their instructions, except for due diligence investigations which are conducted for commercial purposes.

Access to Personal Data

Upon reasonable request, Siemens PLM Software will provide E.U. residents with reasonable access to personal data held about them and allow them to correct, amend or delete information where inaccurate or processed in violation of the Privacy Shield Principles. The Privacy Shield Principles provide exceptions to the obligation to provide access to allow corrections, amendment or deletion of personal data. Access to confidential or proprietary information such as business information, or where granting access must be balanced against the privacy interests of others may be restricted. In addition, access may be denied: (i) when

the information requested relates to an ongoing investigation, litigation or potential litigation; (ii) where the burden or expense of providing access would be disproportionate to the risks to the privacy of the EU Person, or (iii) when the rights of persons other than the EU Person would be violated.
