2. Categories of personal data, purposes of the processing and legal basis

Getinge needs to base its processing of personal data on a legal basis in relation to each purpose of the processing. For example, a legal basis could be that the processing is necessary (a) for compliance with a legal obligation; (b) for the performance of a contract to which you are a party, or; (c) for the purposes of Getinge’s or a third party’s legitimate interests where such interests override your interests of having your personal data processed.

Getinge processes your personal data for the purpose specified below.

Purpose Type of processing Categories of personal data

The purpose of this processing activity is to enable Getinge to control and manage access to Getinge applications and solutions, improve security, manage permissions and roles, and gain better visibility into the number of users accessing our solutions. The registration process allows users to request access to applications or solutions via MyProfile using dedicated forms.

Requests are then approved or rejected by application managers, and if access is granted, specific permissions are defined (limited access to all or part of an application or solution).

The processing activity applies to external users (customers, distributors, business partners) who wish to access Getinge solutions. MyProfile collects and processes personal data for profile registration on the MyProfile website. MyProfile also uses this personal data for application performance (improvement and usage statistics).

If necessary, Getinge will process personal data for the establishment, exercise and/or defense of legal claims. In such case, the data will be kept until the legal claim is finally settled and thereafter for the statute of limitation period. This processing is based on Getinge’s legitimate interest to establish, exercise and defend legal claims.
