Regarding EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) law, Transonic is making every effort to ensure compliance for anyone interacting with our website or our products and services. Transonic is not a Data Controller nor a Data Processor pursuant to the definitions of the GDPR as Transonic does not process, disclose, or in any manner control the data collected and stored by our devices once they are out of our hands. Processing of the data collected during use of any Transonic Products (e.g., storing or exporting patient measurement data) should be controlled by the internal procedures and requirements of the customer’s institution. Every device sold by Transonic can be used without any identifying patient data entry and thus can easily comply with EU standards if the user simply logs patient information only in the patient’s personal chart, and not into the device. Users may also pseudonymize patient-sensitive data with Transonic devices by inputting Patient ID rather than Patient Name. If you have any questions on use of your device and the GDPR requirements, please contact Transonic Data Privacy at DataPrivacy@transonic.com.
If you browse the Transonic website, you may generally do so anonymously, without providing any personal information. However, there are cases in which we may ask you for personal data such as when downloading informational brochures or inquiring about our products. This request may include contact information, for example your name, e-mail address, company name, address, phone number, location data, information about your activities on our website, data about your surfing behavior across different websites, IP address, internet browser and device types, and other data that you actively provide (i.e. your reference number and information about invoices and device data for repair messages).
Transonic will never ask for or collect any information that would be considered sensitive, (such as ethnicity, race, personal history, political opinions, religions, genetic data, health data, or past criminal convictions) and as such, there is very low risk to users of the Transonic website of any data breach. The Transonic website is hosted by HubSpot and as such is subject to continual security testing, penetration testing and it is GDPR compliant; this is done to ensure that we provide you with a secure browsing experience.
Transonic manuals are stored within a gated section of the website, meaning that you must enter your name, email address, and institution, in order to be granted access to this section of the website. On receiving your request for access, Transonic staff will verify that you are a customer of Transonic prior to granting your request access. If you wish to obtain a manual without providing personal information, you may contact Transonic at 1-607-257-5300 to request a hardcopy manual.
If you choose not to provide the information we request, you can still visit most of the Transonic website, but you may be unable to access certain options, offers, and services. In addition to providing the aforementioned information, we may retain the content of your email messages together with your email address and our responses, in case you choose to correspond further with us through email. We provide the same protections for these electronic communications that we employ in the maintenance of information received by mail and telephone.
At any time, you may request a full report of data collected on you and request that all data be removed from our systems. Please contact DataPrivacy@Transonic.com for details.
If you have provided your personal data to Transonic, Transonic will process it for the following purposes:
Transonic retains all customer data indefinitely (customers are those who have purchased products from Transonic) indefinitely so that we can reach out to provide needed necessary information such as product updates, recalls and field safety notifications. Regarding ‘Leads’ (people that have expressed interest and opted-in to communications from Transonic), Transonic will routinely purge leads (people that have opted-in to communications from Transonic) who have not interacted with our promotional material for 5 years. Anyone may opt out of communications at any time, and Transonic will ensure that all personal data collected is fully wiped on request. If you have any questions about this, you can email to DataPrivacy@transonic.com.
Our Website is not intended for or targeted at children under 13, and we do not knowingly or intentionally collect information about children under 13. If you believe that we have collected information about a child under 13, please contact us at DataPrivacy@transonic.com, so that we may delete the information.
