Legal basis, use and protection of personal data
Informational use of the website
When you visit our website for informational reasons, i.e. without registering for any of our provided services and without providing us with personal data in any other form, we may automatically collect additional information about you which will contain personal data only in limited cases and which is automatically recognised by our server. Certain information is collected by most browsers or automatically through your device, such as your Media Access Control (MAC) address, computer type (Windows or Macintosh), screen resolution, operating system name and version, device manufacturer and model, language, Internet browser type and version, and the name and version of the Sites (such as the Apps) you are using. Your “IP Address” is a number that is automatically assigned to the computer that you are using by your Internet Service Provider (ISP). An IP Address may be identified and logged automatically in our server log files whenever you access the Sites, along with the time of the visit and the page(s) that you visited. Collecting IP Addresses is standard practice and is done automatically by many websites, applications and other services. Planon uses IP Addresses to calculate usage levels of the Sites, help diagnose problems with its servers, administer the Sites, and for monitoring the regions from which you navigate to Planon’s Sites.
We use such information only to assist us in providing an effective service (e.g. to adapt our website to the needs of your end user device or to allow you to log in to our website), and to collect broad demographic information for anonymised, aggregate use. The personal data automatically collected is necessary for us to provide the website, Article 6 sec. 1 sent. 1 lit. b GDPR, and for our legitimate interest to guarantee the website’s stability and security, Article 6 sec. 1 sent. 1 lit. f GDPR.
Our website offers a Customer Portal. In order to use the Customer Portal you have to set up an account. In relation to the registration of an account and its subsequent use, we process your email address, first name, last name, gender, language preference, organisation name and password. We will process the personal data you provide to identify you at sign-up, to process your enquiries, to carry out online communications and collaboration (e.g. via Microsoft Teams) or to provide you with access to certain information. For this, the legal basis is Article 6 sec. 1 sent. 1 lit. b GDPR.
Planon offers a demo environment for Planon Apps and Planon Mobile Field Services. In order to use the Planon Apps you have to set up an account. Regarding the registration of an account and its subsequent use, we process your email address, first name, last name, organisation name and password. We will process the personal data you provide to identify you at sign-up, to process your enquiries, to carry out online communications or to provide you with access to certain information. For this, the legal basis is Article 6 sec. 1 sent. 1 lit. b GDPR.
Contacting us/Customer Service
If you contact us - e.g. via e-mail or via a contact form available on our website - your personal data will be stored and processed by us. This is normally your name and your e-mail address as well as the additional information you provide. This data is stored and used to respond to your request and/or for the establishment of contact and the associated technical administration and/or for contacting you for a (new) opportunity. The legal basis is Article 6 sec. 1 sent. 1 lit. b GDPR insofar as it is carried out to fulfil a contract or pre-contractual measures, and Article 6 sec. 1 sent. 1 lit. f GDPR, as the processing of these requests is in the interest of both parties.
For some of our services, it is necessary to give your consent for the saving and processing of certain personal data. To send you the relevant information you requested (via downloading an item or contact us via a form on our website), we need to store and process your personal data. By clicking the button in the form, you agree to our terms in the Privacy Statement. Additionally, you can provide your consent (opt-in) that allows us to process your personal data to inform you about new Planon product offers and other relevant information, e.g. general (news) articles about facility management and real estate management. In these cases, this processing is based on Article 6 sec. 1 sent. 1 lit. f GDPR as this direct advertising represents a justified interest for us.
Consent is obtained on a voluntary basis. We will respect your wish if you do not want to provide us with your personal data for customer service, market research or promotional purposes.
If you no longer wish to receive e-mailings, each e-mail sent contains a link to automatically unsubscribe or you can unsubscribe here. If that option doesn’t work for you, you may contact us via telephone, by post or by sending an email to email@example.com to request removal from our mailing list.
We do not use personal data for automated decision-making, including profiling.
Protection of personal data

For data transfers outside the European Union/the European Economic Area we have taken appropriate safeguards to ensure an adequate level of data protection at the seat of the recipient, e.g. Standard Contractual Clauses. We will provide you with the relevant certificates or further information on these safeguards upon your request.
