将来の見通しに関する記述

インターネットページ、投資家情報のニュース、年次および四半期報告書、予測、プレゼンテーション、イベントの音声および画像ファイル(ライブまたはアーカイブ)、その他の本ウェブページ内の文書には、1995年米国民事証券訴訟改革法ののセーフハーバー条項の意味において、AIXTRONに関するビジネス、運営結果、財政状態および同社の業績見通しに関する将来の見通しに関する記述を含んでいる可能性があります。

これらの記述は、"〜かもしれない"、 "〜だろう"、 "予想する"、 "期待する"、"予期する"、"意図する"、"計画する" 、"信じる"、 "継続する"、"推測する" 等、およびこれらの類似表現や言葉のバリエーションで認められる場合があります。 これらの記述は、将来の業績を保証するものではなく、予測し難い一定のリスク、不確実性、推定が含まれ、正確性を証明できない将来の事象に関する推定に基づいています。

従って、実際の業績および結果は本書内で表現される内容と大きく異なる場合があります。 将来の見通しに関する記述では、誠実な表現を使ったり正当な根拠があるとするなど、AIXTRONが将来の業績に関して期待感あるいは信念を表明していますが、記述や期待感、信念の結果は保証されず、また記述の内容が確実に達成されるという保証はありません。 実際の業績結果は、将来の見通しの記述と大きくことなる場合もあり、一定のリスクが伴います。リスクの一例としてAIXTRONが実際に受注した顧客オーダーから生じるリスク、化学気相蒸着法すなわちCVD技術が市場でどの程度まで要求されるかによるリスク、顧客側での最終的な製品受入れのタイミングから生じるリスク、金融情勢および融資の利用可能性に伴うリスク、薄膜装置市場およびマクロ経済における一般状況、製品発送の取り消し、リスケジュール、または延滞によるリスク、生産能力の制約から生じるリスク、長期的な販売および認定サイクルによるリスク、製造プロセスの問題により生じるリスク、半導体産業の成長の変化により生じるリスク、競争激化によるリスク、為替レートの変動によるリスク、政府資金の獲得状況によるリスク、金利の変動と利用可能性によるリスク、新製品の開発と商品化の遅れに伴うリスク、予測を下回る全般的な経済状況によるリスク、およびその他の要因によるリスクなどが挙げられます。

本書の最新リリースに記載される将来の見通しに関する記述は、本書の日付時点のものであり、AIXTRONでは実際の結果が将来の見通しに関する記述と大きく異なる最新の理由(およびこのような義務から明示的に免責されるという記述)を記載する義務を負いません。 インターネットのAIXTRONのウェブサイトの参照は、本書の最新リリース版の情報を参照により組み込むことを意図しておらず、かかる参照を同じ情報の参照により組み込まれるとは解釈されません。

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

  • 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,
