GDPR Statement


On May 25th, 2018, the European Union's (EU) new data protection framework, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), came into effect. This most important piece of data protection legislation will impact any organisation that processes personal data in connection with goods and services offered to an EU resident, or monitors the behaviour of persons within the EU. The GDPR fortifies individuals' privacy rights through tighter limits of processing their personal data, significantly expanding their rights over their data, and providing increased transparency into the nature, purpose, and use of it.

Anritsu's Commitment to Data Protection and GDPR Compliance

Anritsu understands the importance of putting privacy and data protection in the hands of the data subject. As with other data protection laws, GDPR compliance requires commitment from both Anritsu and our customers.

Anritsu complies with applicable GDPR regulations as a data processor and by working in conjunction with our customers, we will explore opportunities within our service offerings to assist our customers to meet their GDPR obligations.

Where Do We Stand?

We are committed to addressing EU data protection requirements applicable to us as a data processor.

Our ability to fulfil our commitments as a data processor to our customers, the data controllers, is a part of our compliance with GDPR where data controllers are using parties like us to process personal data. Because of this requirement, Anritsu has worked extensively with the Legal Team and the Data Protection Officers to provide that our Data Protection Agreements and related agreements contain appropriate provisions for personal data we process, and balance the risks and responsibilities between data controllers and data processors.

Cross border transfer of personal data

As a global company, your personal data collected by Anritsu may be processed in or accessed from the country/region where your products and services are used or in other countries/regions where Anritsu or its affiliates, subsidiaries or service providers have a presence. These jurisdictions may have different data protection laws. In such circumstances, Anritsu will take measures to ensure that data is processed as required by GDPR and applicable laws in the area where the data is located.
