Privacy Policy
 

Philips believes strongly in protecting the privacy of the personally identifiable information you share with us. We also believe it is important to inform you about how we will use your personal data, and to give you choices about how those data will be used. Therefore, we encourage you to read this Privacy Policy carefully.

Scope of this Privacy Policy

In general, this Privacy Policy applies to all personal information of consumers collected or used by Koninklijke Philips Electronics N.V. or its subsidiaries (Philips). This includes information from websites for commercial use that are owned by Koninklijke Philips Electronics N.V. and offline collections of personal data for commercial use owned by Philips. However, some of our websites or data collections work with special kinds of data (for example, medical data) which require a somewhat different privacy policy. Whenever and wherever that is the case, Philips will make it clear that the privacy policy concerned is different from this general Philips Privacy Policy.
