Philips and the GDPR 
 

Trust, transparency, and control


At Philips, we believe that putting trust, transparency, and control at the heart of our customer and consumer experience is key to being a successful health technology company. We have been closely monitoring the progress of the EU General Data Protection Regulation 2016/679 (“GDPR”)  and partner with, as well as employ numerous legal, process and privacy experts who help us to navigate these regulatory challenges, and deliver on our commitments. With the GDPR now in effect, we want to help our suppliers address their privacy and security requirements under GDPR.  We therefore refer our suppliers to the European Commission Data protection website for this purpose, where suppliers can find in greater detail how we expect them to handle personal data when they provide services to Philips, and we are engaging with them where appropriate.
