Data protection

All personal data collected by the European Union Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO) is  processed in accordance with the provisions of Regulation (EC) N° 45/2001 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 18 December 2000 on the protection of individuals with regard to the processing of personal data by the Community institutions and bodies and on the free movement of such data.

As a general principle, the EUIPO only processes personal data for the performance of tasks carried out in the public interest on the basis of the Treaties establishing the European Communities, on the basis of the European Union Trade Mark Regulation (EUTMR) and the Community Design Regulation (CDR) or in the legitimate exercise of official authority vested in the Office or in a third party to whom the data are disclosed.

All processing operations of personal data are duly notified to the EUIPO Data Protection Officer and, if the case arises, to the European Data Protection Supervisor.

The information collected will in principle only be processed and/or accessed by members of the EUIPO staff or authorised persons responsible for the corresponding processing operations.

Unless specified differently in the Data Protection Register, all natural persons providing personal information to the Office by means of paper or electronic form are deemed to have unambiguously given their consent for the subsequent processing operations in application of Article 5(d) of Regulation 45/2001.

Data subjects are entitled to access and request the correction of their data by sending a written request to the EUIPO.

Data subjects may at any time consult the EUIPO Data Protection Officer (DataProtectionOfficer@euipo.europa.eu) or have recourse to the European Data Protection Supervisor (http://www.edps.europa.eu).
