We collect information in the following ways, including the device information:
- Information you give to us. The personal information like your name, e-mail address, home address, telephone number, company name, company address and job position we ask you to fill in when you sign up for newsletters, request for technical support on our webpage, or request for unique applications such as app or webpage back office.
- Unique applications. Certain services (for example the EV charger, UPS, PV inverter's on-site monitoring, maintenance and control systems or other products sold by Delta Electronics) require your personal information to set up a user account.
- Location information. When you subscribe to our unique application, we may collect and process information about our products' actual location for the purpose of providing EV charger, UPS or PV inverter's on-site monitoring services. We use various technologies to determine location, including, but not limited to, IP address, GPS and other sensors that are currently sold or shall be sold by Delta Electronics that may provide us with information so that we can target the right machine and produce correct electricity consumption data and machine working conditions for you.

We will ask for your consent to process your personal data before you subscribe to our services.
5. Data Transfer
Like most international businesses, we have centralized certain aspects of our data processing and administration in accordance with applicable laws in order to allow us to better manage our business. That centralization may result in the transfer of personal information from one country to another. For example, some personal information concerning you will be transferred to and processed by servers located outside the European Economic Area (EEA), in particular the United States of America.
All personal information transferred to the United States of America is processed by processors that have been certified by the Department of Commerce of the United States of America as providing adequate privacy protection on the same level as the EU standards on the basis of the EU-US privacy shield agreement, effective as of 1 August 2016.
6. Accessing your personal information (for unique application only)
All requests for access to your personal information must be submitted in writing by emails. We may respond to your request by email or any other suitable method.
We may reject requests that are unreasonably repetitive, require disproportionate technical effort or risk the privacy of others.
We respond free of charge to your request for access or correction of your personal information, unless such access or correction requires a disproportionate effort. If so required for warranty, support and maintenance or statutory requirements, we may keep your information in our backup systems after you have deleted information from our services in a manner that protects information from accidental or malicious destruction or use.
Whenever you apply for our unique applications, for example, an account to do on-site monitoring, maintenance and control to our products, we will provide you with separate contact person/information to maintain your account. We have to keep that account information for legitimate business and legal purposes. When updating your personal information, we may ask you to verify your identity before we act on your request.
