This Privacy Notice applies to the personal data of consumers that is collected or used by Koninklijke Philips N.V. or its affiliates or subsidiaries (Philips). Philips Emergency Lighting appreciates the interest you have shown in our company, products and services by visiting our websites, www.philips.com or related communication channels, including, but not limited to, our social media pages and/or channels and blogs (together "Philips Pages"). This Privacy Notice applies to all the personal data Philips collects when you interact with Philips, such as when you visit our websites, when you use the products or services offered by Philips, when you purchase products of Philips, when you subscribe to newsletters, when you contact customer support etc.
This includes, without limitation, all online and offline collections of all types of personal data. However, some Philips Pages collections work with special kinds of data, which require a somewhat different privacy notice. Whenever and wherever that is the case, Philips will make it clear that the privacy notice concerned is different from this general Privacy Notice.
Why we ask you to share your Personal Data
We ask you to share your personal data with us for purposes including, but not limited to:

- Resolving consumer and/or product issues;
- Receiving personalised messages, special offers and advertisements that are relevant to your personal interests, based on the information you have shared with us.
We generally process your personal data only for those purposes that we have communicated with you. If we use it for other (closely related) purposes, additional data protection measures will be implemented if required by law.
Different ways we collect your Personal Data
You can share your personal data with Philips in several ways, including, but not limited to:

Philips Emergency Lighting may also obtain your personal data if you are a customer of a Philips partner. Personal data may also reach us when we purchase another company of which you are a customer. If you do not want Philips to use your personal data that has not been provided by you, you may let us know at any time by contacting your Sales Representative.
Sharing your Personal Data with others
We may share your personal data with service providers, business partners and other third parties, in accordance with applicable law.
For example, Philips Emergency Lighting may sell you a product or offer you a service in a joint marketing effort with another company (Business Partner). We will let you know that such a relationship exists and who these companies are prior to processing your data for such joint marketing efforts.
If we are required by law to obtain your consent, or otherwise believe that your consent is appropriate in the circumstances, we will obtain your consent before we share your personal data.
The agreements with these Business Partners will limit the purposes for which your personal data can be used and disclosed, and will require your personal data to be adequately safeguarded.
Philips will disclose personal data only in conformance with this Privacy Notice and/or when required by law.
How we protect your Personal Data
We recognise and take seriously our responsibility to protect the personal data you entrust to Philips from loss, misuse or unauthorised access. Philips uses a variety of security technologies and organisational procedures to help protect your personal data. For example, we implement access controls, use firewalls, secure servers and we encrypt certain types of data, such as financial information and other sensitive data.
The services that Philips Emergency Lighting provides are always evolving and the form and nature of the services that Philips provides may change from time to time without prior notice to you. For this reason, we reserve the right to change or add to this Privacy Notice from time to time and will post any material revisions on our websites.
We will post a prominent notice on our privacy notice page to notify you of any significant changes to this Privacy Notice, and will indicate at the top of the notice when it was most recently updated. We encourage you to check back often to review the latest version.
The new Privacy Notice will be effective upon posting. If you do not agree to the revised notice, you should alter your preferences, or consider stopping using the Philips pages. By continuing to access or make use of our services after the changes become effective, you agree to be bound by the revised privacy notice.
