Data protection

All personal data collected by the European Union Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO) is processed in accordance with the provisions of Regulation (EC) No 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 (1) the European Union Trade Mark Regulation (EUTMR) and the Community Design Regulation (CDR) (2) or in the legitimate exercise of official authority vested in the EUIPO or in a third party to whom the data is disclosed.

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

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

However, in accordance with Article 3 of Decision No EX-14-3 of the Executive Director of the Office of 22 October 2014 concerning publicly available particulars of European Union trade mark (EUTM), formerly known as Community trade mark, and registered Community design (RCD) applications and registrations, the Office will make available to the public the personal data included in EUTM and RCD applications and registrations, the publication of which is specified in the EUTMR or CDR or in the implementing rules (name and address of the applicant or proprietor and of its representative). The public will be able to access this data via the EUIPO's online tools and platforms and also by downloading the information, and in both cases only for the purpose of providing third parties and public authorities with the information they need to enable them to exercise the rights conferred on them by the EUTMR and CDR and to determine the existence of prior rights belonging to third parties.

Unless specified differently in the Data Protection Register, all natural persons providing personal information to the EUIPO by means of paper or electronic form are deemed to have unambiguously given their consent for the subsequent processing operations under Article 5(d) of Regulation No 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's Data Protection Officer (DataProtectionOfficer@euipo.europa.eu) or have recourse to the European Data Protection Supervisor.
