METTLER TOLEDO takes data protection seriously. We are committed to being transparent about how we collect and use personal data and to meeting our obligations.
This Information Notice describes the type of information that METTLER TOLEDO collects, processes and protects in connection with the METTLER TOLEDO Software Portal (the “Portal").
1. What is the METTLER TOLEDO Software Portal?
The METTLER TOLEDO Software Portal is a license management portal for certain METTLER TOLEDO software products, including but not limited to LabX, ProdX, EasyDirect and other software products (the “Software").
The Portal allows you to manage license keys of the Software that you, or your company licensed from METTLER TOLEDO during the lifecycle of the Software. The Portal provides an overview on obtained Software licenses and enables you to activate these.
In order to ensure that only entitled customers can activate license keys, customers must create a customer profile that allows for customer's appropriate identification. Customers can maintain the licenses to the Software they have licensed in their customer profile. You can also expand Software products managed in a customer profile by adding licenses, as well as making upgrades during the lifecycle of the licensed Software. In addition, in case of an emergency (e.g. hardware damage and required transfer of a software installation) the functionalities of the Portal support an entitlement check, thus preventing any misuse of licenses.
The Portal also allows you to gain access to the Product Knowledge Base through your customer profile. The Product Knowledge Base may provide information on the Software products. You will find release notes, frequently asked questions and details on open issues from our R&D, technical support and user community.
Your customer profile additionally allows you access to information enabling communication for support reasons.
2. What Information do we collect about you and for what purposes is it used?
In the framework of the Portal, we collect and use the following personal information about you for your customer profile:
Please ensure that all information you provide is correct and complete, and that you have the right to provide it.
We will only use the information to (i) create and manage your customer profile, (ii) identify your/your company's license entitlement to Software products, (iii) manage your/your company's licenses as described under section 1 above and to (iv) communicate about your licensed Software products with you as customers for the mentioned technical support reasons.
3. Who controls your data and who has access to it?
The controller of all information in the Portal is Mettler-Toledo GmbH, with address in Im Langacher 44, 8606 Greifensee, Switzerland. METTLER TOLEDO may share personal data with other affiliates within the METTLER TOLEDO Group, if and to the extent necessary for the purposes mentioned above.
