HOW PERSONAL INFORMATION IS COLLECTED

We may collect personal information in a variety of ways, including:

You may block these, but doing so may prevent you from fully accessing or using all the features on our Sites, products, or services because of their dependence on the cookies;
  • Through forms, comment boxes, and the like on the Sites, e.g., when you make a purchase, or interact with us or other users of the Sites; and
  • Using mobile apps, especially if the mobile app requires your personal information to access its features. You may choose not to provide your personal information, but you may be prevented from fully accessing or using all the features of the mobile app.

HOW WE USE PERSONAL INFORMATION

Subject to applicable law relating to consent, we may use or process your personal information in a variety of ways, such as:

  • To operate our business, such as when we process transactions for the sale of our products and services and to provide you support;
  • To validate your identity;
  • To respond to you and fulfill your requests;
  • To send important information to you about our products and services (e.g., software updates or recalls) that pertain to you based upon past purchases or usage, changes to our terms, condition, and policies.
  • To keep you informed about such things as updates to our Sites, products, and services, announcements regarding new products and services, and upcoming events. If you don’t want to be on our mailing list, you can opt-out anytime as described later in this Privacy Policy;

COOKIES / TRACKERS

We use cookies and potentially other technologies, like pixel tags and web beacons, on our Sites. We use these to understand how you use the Sites, the pages you visited, and to make it easier for you to navigate the Sites. We also use these to remember information about you and your preferences when you re-visit our Sites in order to improve and simplify your experience. Our goal is to make your experience more personal to you. We can also use the information to optimize the experience based on your hardware, software versions, and browser type. Sometimes we will use a session ID cookie, for example, to allow you to view your shopping cart. These normally expire when you close your browser.

Most web browsers include a Do-Not-Track (“DNT”) feature or setting you can activate to signal your privacy preference not to have data about your online browsing activities monitored and collected. No uniform technology standard for recognizing and implementing DNT signals has been finalized. As such, we do not currently respond to DNT browser signals or any other mechanism that automatically communicates your choice not to be tracked online.

  • To event sponsors and/or advertisers, such as when you sign up for an event where Masimo is a sponsor or advertiser at the event;
