We must act respectfully and protect sensitive or private information about our colleagues, our customers, our business and our industry. It’s about safeguarding our company, our privacy, our customers and our patients.
What does it mean for us?
We keep confidential information, well, confidential. We never chat about commercial or company information with competitors or anyone for that matter, even if they’re friends. There are better things to talk about with friends and we stick to those.
We also take privacy, data protection and patient confidentiality very seriously. We apply GDPR standards across Getinge globally to be sure we’re fully protecting the information we hold.
Data isn’t just numbers, it’s personal.
We are all responsible.
Our policies help us by being clear what doing things right is. We can’t all walk around with them all day, but we can stop and think before we act:
- Should I be saying this publicly?
- How can I safely share this document?
- Should I have this information on my phone or laptop?
- Do we need to collect and store this information?
- Should I be using my laptop for this?
