For further explanations as to how the processing for the new purpose is compatible with the original purpose, please contact BIO-LOGIC.

If BIO-LOGIC needs to use the personal data collected for an unrelated purpose, a notification shall be sent to explain the legal basis allowing BIO-LOGIC to do so.

Please note that BIO-LOGIC may process the personal data collected without the user or the customers’ knowledge or consent, in compliance with the above rules, where this is required or permitted by law.


BIO-LOGIC may share the personal data with the parties set out below for the purposes set out in the table above:

  • Internal Third Parties as set out in the Glossary.
  • External Third Parties as set out in the Glossary.
  • Third parties to whom BIO-LOGIC may choose to sell, transfer or merge parts of our business or assets. Alternatively, BIO-LOGIC may seek to acquire other businesses or merge with them. If a change happens to BIO-LOGIC’s business, then the new owners may use the personal data already collected in the same way as set out in this privacy policy.

BIO-LOGIC requires all third parties to respect the security of the personal data collected and to treat it in accordance with the law. BIO-LOGIC does not allow its third-party service providers to use the personal data collected for their own purposes and only permit them to process it for specified purposes and in accordance with BIO-LOGIC’s instructions.


BIO-LOGIC shares your personal data within Bio-Logic Group and its network of distributors, if your country or request falls into their area of intervention. This may involve transferring the related data outside the European Union.

Whenever BIO-LOGIC transfers your personal data out of the European Union, it ensures a similar degree of protection is afforded to it by ensuring at least one of the following safeguards is implemented:

  • BIO-LOGIC will only transfer the personal data collected to countries that have been deemed to provide an adequate level of protection for personal data.
  • BIO-LOGIC will conclude appropriate contracts with Group companies and distributors.

Please contact BIO-LOGIC for further information on the specific mechanism used when transferring the personal data out of the European Union.


BIO-LOGIC has put in place appropriate security measures to prevent personal data from being accidentally lost, used, or accessed in an unauthorised way, altered or disclosed. In addition, access to personal data is limited to those employees, agents, contractors and other third parties who have a business need to know. They will only process the personal data on BIO-LOGIC’s instructions, and they are subject to a duty of confidentiality.

BIO-LOGIC has put in place procedures to deal with any suspected personal data breach and will notify you and any applicable regulator of a breach where it is legally required to do so.


BIO-LOGIC shall only retain the personal data collected for as long as reasonably necessary to fulfil the purposes it collected that data for, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, regulatory, tax, accounting or reporting requirements. By law, BIO-LOGIC has to keep basic information about its customers (including Contact, Identity, Financial and Transaction Data) for ten years after they cease being customers, for tax and legal purposes.
BIO-LOGIC may retain the personal data collected for a longer period in the event of a complaint or if we reasonably believe there is a prospect of litigation in respect to our relationship with such user or customer.

In some circumstances, deletion of the data may be requested: see below for further information.

In some circumstances BIO-LOGIC shall anonymise the personal data (so that it can no longer be associated with the related user or customer) for research or statistical purposes, in which case BIO-LOGIC may use this information indefinitely without further notice.

No fee is required to access your personal data (or to exercise any of the other rights). However, BIO-LOGIC may charge a reasonable fee if a request is clearly unfounded, repetitive, or excessive. Alternatively, BIO-LOGIC could refuse to comply with such kind of request in these circumstances.

Specific information that may be needed

BIO-LOGIC may need to request specific information to help confirm your identity and ensure your right to access the personal data requested (or to exercise other rights). This is a security measure to ensure that personal data is not disclosed to any person who has no right to receive it. BIO-LOGIC may also contact you to ask for further information in relation to the request to speed up our response.

Time limit to respond

BIO-LOGIC tries to respond to all legitimate requests within one month. Occasionally it could take longer than a month if the request is particularly complex or there are a number of requests. In this case, BIO-LOGIC will notify you and keep you updated.

BIO-LOGIC makes sure to consider and balance any potential impact on its users (both positive and negative) and their rights before we process their personal data for BIO-LOGIC’s legitimate interests.

Please contact BIO-LOGIC to obtain further information about how we assess our legitimate interests against any potential impact on our users in respect of specific activities.

Users have the right to:

Request access to their personal data (commonly known as a “data subject access request”). This enables them to receive a copy of the personal data we hold about them and to check that BIO-LOGIC is lawfully processing it.

Request correction of the personal data that we hold about our users. This enables them to have any incomplete or inaccurate data we hold about them corrected, though BIO-LOGIC may need to verify the accuracy of the new data provided to it.

Request erasure. This enables our users to ask BIO-LOGIC to delete or remove personal data where there is no good reason for continuing to process it. This also enables them to ask BIO-LOGIC to delete or remove their personal data where they have successfully exercised their right to object to processing (see below), where BIO-LOGIC may have processed their information unlawfully or where BIO-LOGIC is required to erase the related personal data to comply with local law. Note, however, that we may not always be able to comply with your request of erasure for specific legal reasons to be notified, if applicable, at the time of related request.

Request restriction of processing of personal data. This enables BIO-LOGIC to ask for the suspension of the processing of the personal data collected in the following scenarios:

  • If the related user or customer wants BIO-LOGIC to establish the data’s accuracy.
  • Where BIO-LOGIC’s use of the data is unlawful, but the related user or customer does not want us to erase it.
  • Where the related user or customer needs BIO-LOGIC to hold the data even if we BIO-LOGIC no longer requires it as he needs it to establish, exercise or defend legal claims.
  • The related user or customer has objected to BIO-LOGIC’s use of his data, but BIO-LOGIC needs to verify whether it has been overriding legitimate grounds to use it.

Request the transfer of the personal data to you or to a third party. BIO-LOGIC will provide to you, or a third party you have chosen, such data in a structured, commonly used, machine-readable format. Note that this right only applies to automated information initially provided with consent for BIO-LOGIC to use or where BIO-LOGIC used the information to perform a contract with you.

Withdraw consent at any time where BIO-LOGIC is relying on consent to process the personal data collected. However, this will not affect the lawfulness of any processing carried out before such withdrawal. The withdrawal may prevent BIO-LOGIC to provide certain products or services to you. We will advise you if this is the case.
