Privacy Policy

AIXTRON Commitment to Data Privacy Protection

Protecting the security and privacy of your personal data is important to AIXTRON; therefore, we conduct our business in compliance with applicable laws on data privacy protection and data security. We hope the policy outlined below will help you understand what data AIXTRON may collect, how AIXTRON uses and safeguards that data and with whom we may share it.

Personal data

Personal data shall mean any information concerning the personal or material circumstances of an identified or identifiable natural person ("data subject"). Through our AIXTRON homepage we collect personal data only to the necessary technical extent (e.g. IP adress) unless you voluntarily choose to provide us with it (e.g. registration, survey), respectively, provide your consent, or unless otherwise permitted by applicable laws and regulations for the protection of your personal data.

Purpose of Use

When you do provide us with personal data, we usually use it to respond to your inquiry, process your order or provide you access to specific information or offers. Also, to support our customer relationship with you:

  • we may store and process personal data and share it with our worldwide affiliates to better understand your business needs and how we can improve our products and services; or
  • we (or a third party on our behalf) may use personal data to contact you about an AIXTRON offer in support of your business needs or to conduct online surveys to understand better our customers' needs.

If you choose not to have your personal data used to support our customer relationship (especially direct marketing or market research), we will respect your choice. We do not sell or otherwise market your personal data to third parties, except to AIXTRON affiliates.

Purpose Limitation

AIXTRON will collect, use or disclose personal data supplied by you online only for the purposes disclosed to you, unless the disclosure:

  • is a use of the personal data for any additional purpose that is directly related to the original purpose for which the personal data was collected,
  • is necessary to prepare, negotiate and perform a contract with you,
  • is required by law or the competent governmental or judicial authorities,
  • is necessary to establish or preserve a legal claim or defense,
  • is necessary to prevent fraud or other illegal activities, such as willful attacks on AIXTRON information technology systems.
