Sivantos’ Commitment to the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)

The new European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) comes into effect May 25th. The new regulation applies to all companies that process EU citizens’ personal data, regardless of the companies’ country of origin or country of data processing. As an organization with worldwide operations, Sivantos is committed to complying with all applicable laws wherever we do business including the GDPR.

How important is data privacy for Sivantos?

Sivantos receives and processes personal data in order to provide you with quality hearing aids and related products. It is therefore important that when we do receive your personal data, we process it in compliance with our legal obligations including the GDPR.
