We will process your personal data in accordance with this Privacy Notice and applicable privacy laws (“Data Protection Legislation”).
THE COVERAGE OF THIS PRIVACY NOTICE
This Privacy Notice applies only to the collection and processing of personal data on our websites. If you are interacting with one of our companies or shops in another way – e.g. as a user of one of our products or as a participant in a one-off survey – please refer to information available at the point of collection or by other appropriate means.
WHAT PERSONAL DATA DO WE COLLECT AND HOW WE COLLECT IT
OUR PURPOSES AND LEGAL BASES FOR PROCESSING YOUR PERSONAL DATA
When you use one of our contact forms to provide personal data to us, you give us your consent to use your personal data to contact you, deliver the service you requested or reply to your question.
You can always withdraw your consent to the processing of your personal data by contacting us using the details below. When you ask us to contact you, we consider that you have requested us to take steps that could lead to the conclusion of a contract with Nuance Hearing or our representative. In such cases, we use your personal data to facilitate the establishment of a relationship between you and a Nuance Hearing or our representative and disclose your contact details to the Nuance Hearing representative closest to the address you have indicated.
When you actively express an interest in Nuance Hearing products or services (e.g. when you request to be contacted by a Nuance Hearing representative or subscribe to a newsletter), we may use and retain some of your personal data for direct marketing purposes and to assess the effectiveness of our marketing efforts.
We collect and store technical data regarding your use of our websites in order to maintain, protect and improve our websites.
WHO WE SHARE YOUR PERSONAL DATA WITH
We only share your personal data with others to the extent necessary and in accordance with applicable law and regulations. We exchange personal data amongst relevant companies within Nuance Hearing affiliates where it is necessary for us to fulfill the purposes described in this Privacy Notice and any transaction or engagement you requested.
We may disclose your personal data to external service providers acting on strict instructions from us for technical support, to evaluate the usefulness of our websites or for other types of administrative or technical services which are carried out in the course of our business activities. Such external service providers will not process or disclose your personal data for their own purposes, and Nuance Hearing ensures that they offer sufficient guarantees with respect to the security and confidentiality of the personal data which they may be given access to.
We disclose your contact details to a Nuance Hearing representative close to the location indicated by you when you have specifically requested to be contacted.
TRANSFER OF YOUR PERSONAL DATA OUTSIDE THE EUROPEAN ECONOMIC AREA
If you are located in the EU, we may transfer your personal data we collect about you to recipients established outside the EU. We ensure that we comply with the applicable legal requirements when transferring personal data outside the EU.
HOW LONG WE KEEP YOUR PERSONAL DATA
We only retain your personal data for as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes for which the data was collected, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, accounting or reporting requirements.
The health data that you provided us while taking an online hearing test, is deleted immediately after we send you the results by email, upon your request, to the address you provided. Nuance Hearing never discloses online hearing tests results to third parties.
When you actively express an interest in Nuance Hearing products or services (e.g. when you request to be contacted by a Hearing Care Professional or subscribe to a newsletter), we may retain your contact details for direct marketing purposes. You may ask us at any time to stop sending such communications or unsubscribe from our distribution lists. In such cases, we will stop sending you marketing communications and immediately delete your contact details, unless we need it to fulfil a contract with you for the delivery of one of our services.
We retain all other personal data obtained on our websites for a maximum of three months, so as to enable us to ensure follow-up on your requests and to monitor the functioning of our websites.

You can at any time object to our use of your personal information for direct marketing purposes.
