Who handles your information?

The recipients of your personal data are employees of Coloplast who handle the data responsibly for the specific purpose in question. Personal data is handled and shared only to the extent necessary. In some cases, the information is stored or handled by third-party data processors who assist Coloplast with a particular service, such as hosting and IT service providers, recruiters (in the case of job applicants), and logistics companies (if they need your information to distribute products or other materials to you). The third-party data processors only process the information in accordance with Coloplast's instructions and for Coloplast's purposes. We require that these third-party data processors do not share the information with others, and that they delete the information when their tasks are completed.

If public authorities request access to your information, we will make a legal assessment of the request, and if applicable law requires us to disclose the information, we will comply with the request. You will be notified in accordance with applicable law in the event of such disclosure of your information.


How long is your information retained?

Coloplast retains information for as long as it is relevant to the purposes for which it is used, unless applicable law requires us to retain it for a longer period.

  1. If your information is used for the provision of products or services to you, we will generally retain the information until three (3) years after the last delivery or last interaction we have with you, unless applicable law requires us to delete it earlier or keep it for a longer period.
  2. If your information is used to handle job applications, we will not retain the information longer than six months after the end of the application process, unless you have agreed to receive information about future job opportunities or applicable law requires us to retain it for a longer period.
  3. If your information is used to send newsletters or other promotional materials on the basis of your consent, we will keep the information until you withdraw your consent. To "opt-out" of receiving these communications, please follow the unsubscribe instructions included in the specific communication or contact us using at the address listed below.

How we handle transfer of your information safely

Coloplast and its hosting providers maintain servers around the world, and your information may be processed on servers located outside the country or region where you live. Data protection laws vary between countries, with some providing more protection than others. While your data is in another country, it may be accessible to national authorities and law enforcement of that country. Regardless of where your information is processed, Coloplast will apply the same safeguards as described in this policy.


Website browsing and online tracking technologies

Coloplast and third parties that you authorize may set and use cookies, pixels, web beacons, and similar technologies (“cookies”).

Cookies work through by placing a small file (like a text file or graphic) in your browser files. Some cookies are used to collect information for business purposes, such as enabling essential website functions and improving the user experience. You are free to decline these cookies if your browser permits, but some parts of our website may not work properly for you if you do so.

Coloplast may also use third-party tracking, advertising, and content providers to act on our behalf to track and analyze your usage of our sites. These companies protect that data in accordance with their privacy policies. These third parties may collect and share with us information about visits to our sites, measure, and research the effectiveness of our advertisements, and track page usage and paths followed during visits through our sites. Also, these third-party providers may place our Internet banner advertisements on other sites that you visit, and track use of our Internet banner advertisements and other links from our marketing partners' sites to our sites.

Some of the disclosures of information associated with these technologies may be deemed "sales" as we may receive valuable consideration for disclosing personal data. While Coloplast does not disclose personal information to third parties in exchange for monetary compensation, we may “sell” or “share” (as defined by applicable laws) identifiers and etwork activity usage information to advertising networks, data analytics providers and social networks. We do so to improve and evaluate our advertising campaigns and better reach customers and prospective customers with more relevant ads and content.  To opt out of sales or sharing of certain types of targeted advertising, please see the Opt-out section below. For more information, please also see our Cookie Policy.

Your Choices to Opt-out of Cookies: For more information on third-party advertising-related cookies and how to opt out of some cookies as you choose, see Cookie Preferences in the descriptions and links below.

Do Not Track Browser Settings. Some browsers may transmit "Do Not Track" ("DNT") or Global Privacy Control (GPC) signals to the websites you visit. Because there is not common agreement about how to interpret DNT signals, Coloplast currently does not act in response to them.
