Privacy Notice

ASSA ABLOY is committed to protecting your personal data. This privacy notice describes:

Please click on the links above to navigate directly to the relevant section of this privacy notice.

As a business established outside of the European Economic Area (EEA) ASSA ABLOY Americas division (ASSA ABLOY) is generally not required to comply with the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).  Notwithstanding the absence of any legal requirement to do so, Hanchett Entry Systems, Inc., an ASSA ABLOY Group company, is committed to voluntarily applying the high standards of data privacy set out in the GDPR across the Company and its Group.

Hanchett Entry Systems, Inc., an ASSA ABLOY Group company of Phoenix, Arizona, as "data controller" is responsible for the processing of your personal data.

What personal data we collect

Why do we process this personal data?

What is the basis for such processing?

Using your personal data in this way is necessary for us to respond to your request, which is our legitimate interest.

To set up and manage your account, for example by sending you password reminders or notifications of changes to your account details.

Using your personal data in this way is necessary for us to provide you with an online account that is our legitimate interest.

To fulfil your order where you have made a purchase from this digital service, to contact you about sales and as a part of our customer relation procedures.

Using your personal data in this way is necessary for us to perform our contractual obligations where you have placed an order on this digital service.

It is in our legitimate interests to process personal data to take measures to keep our customers' payments secure, prevent fraud and protect our digital services from cyber-attacks.

To carry out statistical analysis about the use of the website to better understand how our website is used and make improvements.

It is in our legitimate interest to look at this information to understand how our website is being used and manage and improve it. Since no sensitive personal data will be processed and the processing is limited, we have concluded that our legitimate interest to conduct the improvements and analysis takes precedence over your privacy interest.

To better understand your interests and preferences, in order to provide you with an experience that is tailored to those interests and preferences.

It is in our legitimate interest to look at the preferences that we derive from your browsing behavior and purchases so that we can personalize content to better meet your needs as a customer, provided this is in line with your marketing choices.

  • To a buyer or a potential future buyer of our business.

Recipients may be located in many countries around the world, including countries outside the European Union (EU) and the European Economic Area (EEA).

As in some cases, these countries have a lower level of protection than that within the EU/EEA, when transferring personal data subject to GDPR to countries outside the EU/EEA we use standard contractual clauses approved by the European Commission as a measure to provide a legally sufficient level of protection for your personal data. These standard contractual clauses may be found via the following link: http://ec.europa.eu/justice/data-protection/international-transfers/transfer/index_en.htm.

We take measures to protect all personal data transferred to a third party, or to other countries, in accordance with applicable data protection laws and as stated above.
