4.1 Our Data Privacy Statement
Anonymous data collection
You can visit Sysmex Europe SE web pages without telling us who you are. We can only determine the name of your ISP, the web page from which you are visiting us, and the web pages you visit on our site. This Information will be evaluated for statistical purposes. But it means you stay anonymous as a single user.
Collection and processing data related to individuals
Data related to individuals will only be collected if you voluntarily provide us with this information, e.g. for a contract, a survey or when registering personalised services. In the context of personalised services by Sysmex Europe SE, we will process your registration data based on your acceptance for advertising and market research, and process them as needed for configuring electronic services. In addition, should you agree, we will collate the information collected during your visit to our Sysmex Europe SE pages and generate a user profile so we can offer tailored advertising personally to you. This information will be transferred in coded format to counteract abuse of these data by a third party.
Exporting and processing data in states outside European Economic Area
We process your personal data mainly in data centres in the European Union. If data transfers to third countries take place, we ensure appropriate guarantees for compliance with the provisions of the GDPR.
Use and distribution of data related to individuals
Without your acceptance data related to individuals collected in conjunction with webpages of Sysmex Europe SE will only be used for order processing and processing your inquiries. Beyond this we will only use your data for advertising and market research or for designing electronic services of Sysmex Europe SE if you gave us your acceptance for this in advance. In addition, we will only use your data for tailored personal advertising once we have received your acceptance.
As the acceptance for using your data under the purposes mentioned above may also include transmitting your data to companies of Sysmex Corporation and to business partners of Sysmex Europe SE chosen by you, your data may be transmitted to these parties as well. There will be no other transmittance to other third parties. Your acceptance can be withdrawn at any time, of course.
To optimise your information, you will find links on our webpages that will connect you to pages of third parties. If it is not clear, we point out that it is an external link. Sysmex Europe SE has no influence on the content or design of these pages of other providers. Guarantees resulting from this data protection declaration are therefore not valid there.

We use Google Fonts from Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA) for our website. No registration on your part is required for the use of Google Fonts. No cookies are stored in your browser. The files (CSS (Cascading Style Sheets), fonts) are requested via the Google domains fonts.googleapis.com and fonts.gstatic.com. Through this external request, data such as IP address and the visited website are transmitted to the Google servers. Google Fonts are an important component to keep up the high quality of our website. All Google Fonts are automatically optimized for the web, saving a lot of data volume. It is also a great advantage for use on mobile devices. We use the Google Fonts so that we can present our entire online service in a visually appealing way. The legal basis for the use of Google Fonts results from a legitimate interest according to Art. 6 para. 1 letter f) GDPR.

By integrating Google Maps, we can provide you with important information about our locations. Offering Google Maps is part of our customer service. In order for Google Maps to fully provide their service, the company must record and store data from you. This includes, among other things, the search terms entered, your IP address and the latitude or longitude coordinates. If you use the route planner function, the start address you entered is also stored. However, this data storage happens on the websites of Google Maps. Thus, we can inform you about this however we have no further influence which data is stored.
Google Tag Manager
On our website, users have the option to subscribe to our newsletter. We only send newsletters to recipients from whom we have received consent to receive the newsletter. It is necessary to provide us with an e-mail address for the subscription to our newsletter. If necessary, we collect additional data, for example, to provide our newsletter with a personal addressing header. Our newsletter is only sent after the so-called double opt-in procedure has been completed. If visitors to our website decide to subscribe to our newsletter, they will receive a confirmation e-mail, which serves to prevent the misuse of false e-mail addresses and to exclude the possibility that a simple, possibly accidental, click triggers the dispatch of the newsletter. The subscription to our newsletter can be terminated at any time for the future. An unsubscribe link (opt-out link) is included at the end of each newsletter. In addition, we are obliged to provide evidence that our subscribers actually wanted to receive the newsletter. For this purpose, we collect and store the IP address and the time of subscription and unsubscription. Our newsletters are designed in such a way that it is possible for us to gain insights into improvements, target groups or the reading behavior of our subscribers. This is enabled by usage of a so-called web beacon or tracking pixel, which reacts to interactions with the newsletter, for example, whether links are clicked, the newsletter is opened at all or at what time the newsletter is read. If we have been given separate consent for tracking in our newsletter (so-called tracking permission), we can draw conclusions about the behavior of usage of our newsletter subscribers. The tracking permission can be revoked separately without revoking the consent to receive the newsletter itself. Without granted tracking permission, we cannot draw any conclusions about the behavior of usage of individual subscribers.

4.2 Sysmex accepts no liability for the contents of other suppliers, which can be accessed via hyper links on My Sysmex. Many links on My Sysmex refer to contents, which are not stored on Sysmex servers. The contents of external third parties have been checked by Sysmex for illegality and criminal liability when the link was set up. Nevertheless it cannot be excluded that contents may be retrospectively modified by suppliers. Sysmex is not obliged to make constant checks on these and therefore repudiates all liability whatsoever
§ 5 Applicable law, Court of jurisdiction
5.1 German law is the sole applicable law governing the contractual relationship between Sysmex and the customer.
5.2 For all disputes arising from or in connection with this contract the parties agree that the Courts competent for Norderstedt have exclusive jurisdiction.
5.3 In the event that individual provisions of these General Conditions of Use are or become ineffective or invalid, the remaining provisions of these General Conditions of use shall remain unaffected thereby. In place of the ineffective or invalid provision to be replaced the parties shall agree a provision, which comes closest in law to the commercial purpose of the General Conditions of Use. In the event of any omission a provision is to be agreed, such that the parties would have agreed, if they had been aware of the omission at the time of concluding the contract.
