TOSHIBA places great importance on respecting the personal rights of all
visitors to its websites. Please find below our data protection
declaration, informing you of the nature and extent of the personal data
collected via these websites, as well as the purposes for which this data
is processed and used.
Webserver - Protocols
When you visit our website, as is usual on almost all websites, our server
automatically collects personal information such as your IP aDatddress
(including the domain name associated with the IP address, i.e. using
reverse look-up), the date and time of your visit to our website, the pages
you visited on our website and the browser you are using etc. It also
stores, where this is available, the country from which you are accessing
our website (only the ending is saved (e.g. de), since this indicates the
relevant country) the language of the browser you are using, the website
from which you are accessing our website, the search word used (if our site
is accessed via a search engine), as well as the type of connection and
operating system. We use this information to improve constantly your
Personal data you provide
In general, you do not need to provide personalised information to access
our websites. Your personal data, for example your name, address, telephone
number, email address, etc., are stored only if you provide us with this
information in order to use one of the services on our website (e.g.
registering warranties/service, registering for a personalised web
experience, signing up for the newsletter (e-mail only) or taking part in
competitions). This data is then processed and used to perform the
requested services. In addition, this data is only processed and used for
other purposes (e.g. sending additional information about our company and
products) if you have given us your advance consent to do so. Your consent
is also required to transmit your personal data to third parties outside
the legally permitted circumstances.
On some sites we use a “double opt-in system”. This means that when you
first register with us, you are sent a confirmation email containing your
login details. You then need to use these details to access our website.
Your registration is not activated until you have logged in with your user
name and password.

the website optimally. Cookies are small files which are stored temporarily
on your hard disk (session-based cookies). These cookies exist only until
the end of the Internet session. They are used for navigation and increase
the user friendliness of a website. You can still use some of our website
even if you do not want cookies to be created on your computer. However,
please note that some functions may be restricted and/or some websites will

Toshiba has implemented technical and organizational security measures to
guarantee the security of your personal information. Users’ personal
information is stored in our secure networks and access is restricted to
those employees and partners who are entitled to access our systems.
In areas where you enter data we work with the “Secure Socket Layer” (SSL)
standard encryption system. Please note that your browser must support
encryption protection. You can find this, for example, in Internet Explorer
version 3.0 or a higher version and most other browsers. Data is stored in
databases which are protected against unauthorized access by security
firewalls and software. Whenever your browser displays a closed padlock
symbol at the bottom of the screen, or a similar icon/highlighted web
address in a different browser, this indicates that your data is being
transmitted in an encrypted format.
If the SSL system is not available for technical reasons, an error page is
displayed to ensure that under no circumstances can your data be
transmitted without encryption.

No personal data collected via this website is processed outside the
