Any personal data provided to Summit Medical and Scientific will be used exclusively for providing you with the information you have requested. We do not pass any of your personal data to outside organisations and/or individuals, except with your express consent. This is only necessary when we need to share your information in order to provide the information or service requested.

If you make an enquiry and you are based in the USA, we shall refer you to the sales partner for that region with your permission.
General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) (EU) 2016/679 is a regulation in EU law on data protection and privacy for all individuals within the European Union. It ensures that citizens have control over what personal information is collected, how it is used, and how it can be edited or removed.
We are ensuring that our website is GDPR compliant, as the only personal data we collect can only be provided by our website users with their clear, unquestionable and explicit consent. This is either via the contact form, where there is a disclaimer where we explain that completing this contact form means you are giving positive and express consent to be contacted by us in response to your enquiry. This information will not be used for marketing purposes, or shared with another company, unless you provide consent.
The second way that we collect personal data is via our newsletter sign-up forms.

Users can input their name and email address, and will then be sent a confirmation email asking users to “double opt-in” and re-confirm that they wish to subscribe. If you change your mind, simply do not confirm and you will not be subscribed.
By subscribing to our newsletter, we will only use your information to send you updates about our company and our products via the newsletter. You can unsubscribe at any time, either by selecting ‘Unsubscribe’ at the bottom of our newsletters, or by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
