How do we treat your privacy and personal information.

Data Protection

The protection of your privacy is our highest priority. We collect and use your personal data exclusively within the framework of the applicable data protection regulations. Our employees and representatives are obliged to comply with data protection regulations in accordance with legal requirements.

Below we will inform you about the type, scope and purpose of the collection and use of personal data. Personal data are generally all data that can be related to you personally, e.g. name, address, e-mail addresses, user behaviour.

You can retrieve this information at any time from our app. This information refers to the use of the service via PC, smartphone, tablet and all other internet-enabled devices and the associated processing of your personal data and your rights. These indications can be retrieved from the app at any time.


General Information about Data Processing
We collect and use your personal data only to the extent necessary to provide a functional app and our content and services. The collection and use of your personal data takes place regularly only after your consent. An exception applies in those cases where prior consent cannot be obtained for factual reasons and the processing of the data is permitted by law.

Your personal data will be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of retention ceases to apply. Furthermore, data will be stored if the European or national legislator has provided for this in EU regulations, laws or other regulations to which Panasonic Electric Works is subject as the controller. The data will also be blocked or deleted if a storage period prescribed by the aforementioned standards expires, unless there is a need for further storage of the data.


Provision of the app and creation of log files
The following data will be saved in a log file when you open our app:

Data Legal basis for the processing Purpose of the Processing Storage Period
Used operating system / information on the browser type and version used / internet service provider of the user / IP address / if applicable manufacturer and type of smartphone, tablets or other device / date and time of use / log files Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b and f GDPR Distribution of the app, error analysis and clarification of IT security attacks Log files: 7 days upon collection

In weighing up the interests pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR, we have taken into account and weighed up our interest in providing the app to you against your interest in having your personal data processed in compliance with data protection requirements. Since the aforementioned data may be technically necessary to provide our service to offer the functions of our app and also to guarantee stability and security, in particular protection against misuse, we have come to the conclusion that this data can be processed – with a state-of-the-art guarantee of data security – whereby your interest in data protection-compliant processing is appropriately taken into account.

When you download the mobile app, information is also transferred to the relevant App Store. We have no influence on this data collection and are not responsible for it.


You can contact us via our e-mail address. The personal data transmitted to us in this way will of course only be used for the purpose for which you made them available to us when contacting us.

A communication takes place expressly on voluntary basis and with your consent. If this involves information on communication channels (e.g. e-mail address, telephone number), you also agree that we may contact you via this communication channel in order to respond to your request.

The processing of your personal data takes place for the processing of contact inquiries and can also be based on Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. b) GDPR. The data will be deleted after contact has been made if it is no longer necessary or if there are legal storage obligations.


Integration of third-party content
Third-party content, such as videos from YouTube, on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 letter f) GDPR, is integrated into our app. This always presupposes that the providers of this content (hereinafter referred to as "third party providers") are aware of the IP address of the users. Because without the IP address, they could not send the content to the browser of the respective user. The IP address is therefore required for the display of this content. We make every effort to use only those contents whose respective providers use the IP address only for the delivery of the contents. However, we have no influence on this if the third party providers store the IP address, e.g. for statistical purposes. As far as we know, we inform the users about this.

The contents of third parties are not directly integrated in our app. In particular, this is intended to prevent the formation of a profile by the third party provider. In order to be able to view third party content, users must first click on the preview image (so-called two-click solution). Content can only be viewed after clicking away the note or logging in. Data is not transmitted until this moment.


Disclosure of personal data / Recipients
Your data will only be disclosed to affiliated companies and service partners if they are working on our behalf and support. The processing of your personal data by contracted service providers takes place within the scope of order processing in accordance with Art. 28 GDPR.

The aforementioned service providers only have access to such personal information as is necessary for the performance of their respective activities. These service providers are prohibited from disclosing your personal information or using it for other purposes, in particular for their own advertising purposes.

Where external service providers come into contact with your personal data, we have taken legal, technical and organisational measures and carried out regular checks to ensure that they also comply with the applicable data protection regulations.

Your personal data will not be disclosed commercially to other companies.


Do I have an obligation to provide my personal data?
There is no obligation to provide your personal data. The provision of personal data is voluntary and has no effect on your application process.


Does an automated decision making or profiling take place?
An automated decision making, especially an automated decision about your application, or profiling does not take place.
