1. Definitions: key terms
The data protection declaration of IKEUCHI EUROPE B.V. is based on the terms used by the European legislator for the adoption of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Our data protection declaration should be legible and understandable for the general public, as well as our customers and business partners. To ensure this, we would like to first explain the terminology used.
In this data protection declaration, we use, inter alias, the following terms:
a. Personal data
Personal data means any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (“data subject”). An identifiable natural person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or to one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person.
b. Data subject
Data subject is any identified or identifiable natural person, whose personal data is processed by the controller responsible for the processing.
Processing is any operation or set of operations which is performed on personal data or on sets of personal data, whether or not by automated means, such as collection, recording, organization, structuring, storage, adaptation or alteration, retrieval, consultation, use, disclosure by transmission, dissemination or otherwise making available, alignment or combination, restriction, erasure or destruction.
d. Restriction of processing
Restriction of processing is the marking of stored personal data with the aim of limiting their processing in the future.
Profiling means any form of automated processing of personal data consisting of the use of personal data to evaluate certain personal aspects relating to a natural person, in particular to analyze or predict aspects concerning that natural person’s performance at work, economic situation, health, personal preferences, interests, reliability, behavior, location or movements.
Pseudonymisation is the processing of personal data in such a manner that the personal data can no longer be attributed to a specific data subject without the use of additional information, provided that such additional information is kept separately and is subject to technical and organizational measures to ensure that the personal data are not attributed to an identified or identifiable natural person.
g. Controller or controller responsible for the processing
Controller or controller responsible for the processing is the natural or legal person, public authority, agency, or other body which, alone or jointly with others, determines the purposes and means of the processing of personal data; where the purposes and means of such processing are determined by Union or Member State law, the controller or the specific criteria for its nomination may be provided for by Union or Member State law.
Processor is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency, or other body which processes personal data on behalf of the controller.
Recipient is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency, or another body, to which the personal data are disclosed, whether a third party or not. However, public authorities which may receive personal data in the framework of a particular inquiry in accordance with Union or Member State law shall not be regarded as recipients; the processing of those data by those public authorities shall be in compliance with the applicable data protection rules according to the purposes of the processing.
j. Third party
Third party is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency, or body other than the data subject, controller, processor, and persons who, under the direct authority of the controller or processor, are authorized to process personal data.
Consent of the data subject is any freely given, specific, informed and unambiguous indication of the data subject’s wishes by which he or she, by a statement or by a clear affirmative action, signifies agreement to the processing of personal data relating to him or her.
2. The Controller: who is collecting the data?

We ensure you we never bought and will never buy listing of companies for cold calling purpose.
5. Purpose of the processing: what purpose do we use your data for?
a. Data protection for specific and limited purposes as a B2B company
We collect, process, and use personal data from Customers, Suppliers, Business Partners and Users or from their employees for purposes of performing the contractual relationship including invoice processing, communication, legal and compliance activities, for marketing purposes and customer relationship, management activities, and for fraud prevention and security activities.
- Conducting business
We collect the above-mentioned data to provide you with the most suitable solution (products / services) with a high quality of technical support to respond to your inquiries or to solve issues you may have.
- Marketing and customer relationship
- Data analysis
As a responsible company, we do not use automatic decision-making. Only marketing personas will be analyzed to deliver content that will be the most relevant and useful for our customers and prospects. Marketing personas are built with segments depending on your industry, your need, your online behavior.
We use the personal data collected to also conduct data analytics to improve our products and solutions. It will only be used where it is necessary to achieve a legitimate interest.
We process your personal data so far as such processing is legally permitted. Below is a description of the legal basis on which IKEUCHI EUROPE B.V. processes your personal data.
Please note that this is not the full and complete list of legal principles, but solely a list of examples which are intended to illustrate how IKEUCHI EUROPE B.V. is handling your personal data.
- Consent – IKEUCHI EUROPE B.V. will process certain personal data only with your explicit and free consent, e.g., when you allowed us to send you marketing material via email. You are entitled to withdraw your approval at any time to end future processing.
- Performance of the contractual relationship with the Customer, Supplier, or Business Partner- IKEUCHI EUROPE B.V. may enter into legal contracts with you. IKEUCHI EUROPE B.V. processes your personal data to comply with legal obligations arising from these contracts.
- Compliance with legal obligations – IKEUCHI EUROPE B.V. is subject to a number of statutory requirements. Such legal obligations may sometimes require the processing of certain personal and sometimes also sensitive personal data.
- Legitimate interest of IKEUCHI EUROPE B.V., other IKEUCHI group companies or other third parties -IKEUCHI EUROPE B.V. will process your personal data in order to safeguard our own or any third party’s interests. However, this applies only if your interests do not prevail in the individual case.
The provision of personal data is necessary for the conclusion and/or performance of the Customer, Supplier, or Business Partner relationship, and is voluntary. However, if you do not provide Customer, Supplier or Business Partner data, the affected Customer and Supplier management and administration processes might be delayed or impossible.
b. The legitimate interests pursued by the Controller or by a third party
Where the processing of personal data is based on Article 6(1) lit. f GDPR our legitimate interest is to carry out our business in favor of the well-being of all our employees and the shareholders.
c. Legal basis for the processing
Art. 6(1) lit. a GDPR serves as the legal basis for processing operations which we obtain consent for a specific processing purpose. If the processing of personal data is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is party, as is the case, for example, when processing operations are necessary for the supply of goods or to provide any other service, the processing is based on Article 6(1) lit. b GDPR.
The same applies to such processing operations which are necessary for carrying out pre-contractual measures, for example in the case of inquiries concerning our products or services. Is our company subject to a legal obligation by which processing of personal data is required, such as for the fulfillment of tax obligations, the processing is based on Art.6(1) lit. c GDPR.
In rare cases, the processing of personal data may be necessary to protect the vital interests of the data subject or of another natural person. This would be the case, for example, if a visitor were injured in our company and his name, age, health insurance data or other vital information would have to be passed on to a doctor, hospital or other third party. Then the processing would be based on Art. 6(1) lit. d GDPR.
Finally, processing operations could be based on Article 6(1) lit. f GDPR. This legal basis is used for processing operations which are not covered by any of the above-mentioned legal grounds, if processing is necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by our company or by a third party, except where such interests are overridden by the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject which require protection of personal data. Such processing operations are particularly permissible because they have been specifically mentioned by the European legislator. He considered that a legitimate interest could be assumed if the data subject is a client of the controller (Recital 47 Sentence 2 GDPR).
d. Data protection for job applications and the application procedures
The data controller shall collect and process the personal data of applicants for the purpose of the processing of the application procedure. The processing may also be carried out electronically. This is the case, in particular, if an applicant submits corresponding application documents by e-mail or by means of a web form on the website to the controller. If the data controller concludes an employment contract with an applicant, the submitted data will be stored for the purpose of processing the employment relationship in compliance with legal requirements. If no employment contract is concluded with the applicant by the controller, the application documents shall be automatically erased two months after notification of the refusal decision, provided that no other legitimate interests of the controller are opposed to the erasure. Other legitimate interest in this relation is, e.g. a burden of proof in a procedure under the General Equal Treatment Act (AGG).
e. Provisions of personal data as statutory or contractual requirement. Requirement necessary to enter into a contract. Obligation of the data subject to provide the personal data. Possible consequences of failure to provide such data.
We clarify that the provision of personal data is partly required by law (e.g. tax regulations) or can also result from contractual provisions (e.g. information on the contractual partner). Sometimes it may be necessary to conclude a contract that the data subject provides us with personal data, which must subsequently be processed by us. The data subject is, for example, obliged to provide us with personal data when our company signs a contract with him or her. The non-provision of the personal data would have the consequence that the contract with the data subject could not be concluded. Before personal data is provided by the data subject, the data subject must contact any employee. The employee clarifies to the data subject whether the provision of the personal data is required by law or contract or is necessary for the conclusion of the contract, whether there is an obligation to provide the personal data and the consequences of non-provision of the personal data.
6. International Data Transfer: who will it be shared with?
The personal data that we collect or receive about you may be transferred to and processed by recipients listed in the categories of recipients, who can be located inside or outside the European Economic Area (“EEA”). For recipients located outside of the EEA, IKEUCHI EUROPE B.V. has taken appropriate measures to comply with the requirements of the data protection law to secure transfer of Personal Data outside EU, such as implementing a Data Transfer Agreement, based on appropriate EU Commission model clauses.
- Categories of Recipients
- Other employees within the IKEUCHI group, external advisers, public accountants, governmental authorities, courts, distributors and suppliers of goods and services, and external service providers for various service.
IKEUCHI EUROPE B.V. requires from the service providers to whom your personal data may be transferred that they undertake to process your personal data only on behalf and subject to its instructions and to implement appropriate security measures to keep your personal data confidential.
7. Protection of your personal data:
a. Protection measures: Technical and Organizational Measures
IKEUCHI EUROPE B.V. puts into place appropriate technical and organizational security measures to minimize the risk of unauthorized or unlawful disclosure or access to, or accidental or unlawful loss, destruction, alteration, or damage to your personal data. These security measures will over time be improved in line with legal and technological development.
b. Period for which the personal data will be stored
The criteria used to determine the period of storage of personal data is the respective statutory retention period. After expiration of that period, the corresponding data is routinely deleted, as long as it is no longer necessary for the fulfillment of the contract or the initiation of a contract.
Your personal data is stored by IKEUCHI EUROPE B.V. and/or our service providers, strictly to the extent necessary for the performance of our obligations and strictly for the time necessary to achieve the purposes for which the information is collected, in accordance with applicable data protection laws.
Therefore, IKEUCHI EUROPE B.V. will delete your personal data when your data are no longer relevant and upon expiration of the maximum storage term of your data as set forth by the applicable law in any case.
Personal data contained in contracts, business communication and letters can be subject to statutory retention requirements, which may require a retention of up to 10 years. Any other Supplier data will in principle be deleted two years after the termination of the business relationship between you and IKEUCHI EUROPE B.V.
We ensure deletion, pseudonymization and anonymization of personal data wherever possible.

The Data Protection Officer shall promptly ensure that the erasure request is complied with immediately.
Where the controller has made personal data public and is obliged pursuant to Article 17(1) to erase the personal data, the controller, taking account of available technology and the cost of implementation, shall take reasonable steps, including technical measures, to inform other controllers processing the personal data that the data subject has requested erasure by such controllers of any links to, or copy or replication of, those personal data, as far as processing is not required.

f. Right to data portability
Each data subject shall have the right granted by the European legislator, to receive the personal data concerning him or her, which was provided to a controller, in a structured, commonly used, and machine-readable format. He or she shall have the right to transmit those data to another controller without hindrance from the controller to which the personal data have been provided, as long as the processing is based on consent pursuant to point (a) of Article 6(1) of the GDPR or point (a) of Article 9(2) of the GDPR, or on a contract pursuant to point (b) of Article 6(1) of the GDPR, and the processing is carried out by automated means, as long as the processing is not necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller.
