Changes to this Privacy Statement
We advise you to read this Privacy Statement carefully and to consult it on a regular basis when you use our website and services.
Personal data is all data that identifies you directly or in combination with other data. We collect personal data that you provide to us when you use our website and services, personal data that we collect automatically and personal data that we collect from other sources.
The personal data that we collect include:
You can yourself determine which data you provide to us. In some cases, however, we can only meet a request when we receive more data from you, e.g. your phone number. If so, we will inform you about this separately. Not providing these details may mean that we cannot process your question or request in part or at all or that you may not be able to use our services.
We use external sources to collect certain personal data. For example, the Chamber of
Commerce to collect business data of contracting parties.
Watts Water uses your personal data for the following purposes:
Our products and services are meant for adults. We do not intentionally collect personal data of minors (aged under 18 years) and we therefore request that minors do not provide us with personal data and do not use our products and services.
Watts Water handles your personal data carefully and confidentially. Your personal data are only available to Watts Water employees to the extent this is necessary to provide our services or if we have a legal basis for doing so.
Watts Water only shares personal data with third parties that Watts Water trusts. They are our:
Group companies: Watts Water is part of Watts Water Technologies Inc. For internal reports and security and to optimise our services, we share certain personal data with our group companies;
Service providers: we share your personal data with our service providers to the extent this is relevant. For example, to collect payments, to investigate and prevent fraud, to distribute marketing communications, to show personalised adverts, to optimise our services or to analyse data;
Authorities: we share your personal data with authorities to the extent this is relevant. For example, with supervisory authorities, courts and public bodies, to the extent this is necessary to fulfil a legal obligation or to prosecute criminal offences and fraud. We may also transfer personal data to authorities to protect our rights and property, or the rights and property of third parties;
Professional consultants: we share your personal data with our professional consultants to the extent this is relevant. For example, with our lawyers if we need legal advice.
Watts Water provides your personal data to third parties that are located outside the EU. For example, with our headquarter Watts Water Technologies Inc. in the US. We will only provide your personal data to recipients that handle your personal data confidentially and provide appropriate protection in line with European standards, so that your personal data is protected appropriately (e.g. by concluding EU Model Contracts for the international transfer of personal data as approved by the European Commission).
If you have questions about the international transfer of your personal data or the appropriate safeguards that Watts Water has taken to protect your personal data, please send an email to the VP Legal & Compliance EMEA at email@example.com.
Watts Water has implemented physical, technical and organisational security measures to protect your personal data. These measures are aimed at ensuring the on-going integrity and confidentiality of your personal data, for instance by ensuring that only authorised employees have access to your personal data. We evaluate and update these measures on a regular basis. However, no information system is 100% secure, so we cannot guarantee the absolute security of your personal data.
We will retain your personal data for the duration of our relationship, unless a shorter retention period is required by law or the data is no longer necessary for the purposes for which the data was obtained. Once our relationship with you has come to an end, we will retain your personal data for the period of time that enables us to:
Depending on your location, you are entitled to access or change your personal data, have them removed, restricted or transfer them. Also, depending on your location, you may restrict or object to Watts Water processing them. For example, you may object to our use of your personal data for marketing purposes.
If you have given your consent to us using your personal data, you may at all times withdraw that consent.
In order to protect your privacy, the security and the confidentiality of your personal data, we ask you to send a copy of a valid ID along with your request, on which only your name is visible and with the other data redacted.
You can contact us at any time if you have questions or complaints about this Privacy Statement or about the processing of your personal data by sending an email to the VP Legal & Compliance EMEA at firstname.lastname@example.org. We are committed to handling your queries and complaints as best we can. If you are of the opinion that we have been unable to help you with your complaint, you can file a complaint with your local EU data protection authority.
Our website contains several links to other websites. Watts Water is not responsible for the way in which these third parties handle your personal data. We advise you to read the privacy statement of the third party when you visit its website in order to understand how this third party collects and uses your personal data.
