Who is responsible for handling my information? How is my information being handled?

The Coloplast Group consists of many companies around the world. The Coloplast companies that provide the services you sign up for are joint data controllers responsible for handling your information. Some services are provided by the local Coloplast company in your country/region, whereas other services are provided by Coloplast A/S in Denmark (HQ), whereas other services are provided by the Parties together. 


To this effect, the Parties have entered into an arrangement pursuant to Article 26 GDPR by which the main responsibility for obtaining consent correctly, i.e. for the validity of consent, lies with the obtaining local Coloplast Group entity in collaboration with HQ, whereas HQ and your local Coloplast Group entity share the responsibility for keeping data updated. HQ will eventually delete or anonymize data. For further information, please contact dataprivacyofficer@coloplast.com or visit Data Privacy and Security - Corporate (coloplast.com).

You can see the responsible Coloplast companies for the relevant consent options below. In respect of the consents you give, “Coloplast” is the responsible data controller as listed below.

For each consent option it shows (i) the purposes your information is used for, and for each purpose, what information we collect, (ii) with whom the information is shared, (iii) how long it is kept, and (iv) on what legal basis it is processed. Description of the legal basis is made with reference to relevant articles of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”). The information Coloplast may collect depends on the service(s) you have signed up for and the consent(s) you have given.
