This policy statement discloses our privacy practices including the notification of:
- PII collected through our Site;
- Intended usage of this PII;
- Choices available regarding opt-in/opt-out, data collection, use and distribution of the information;
- Security measures to protect the loss or misuse of information under Bioness' control; and
- How to maintain the accuracy of your information.
Additionally, you irrevocably agree that Bioness may disclose any information you provide if required to do so by law or pursuant to a request by law enforcement or if we have a good faith belief that disclosure is necessary to (i) comply with the law or with the legal process; and (ii) protect and defend the rights or property of Bioness or third parties; or (iii) act in an emergency to protect someone's safety or legal rights ("Mandatory Disclosures").
The collected information may be provided in the aggregate to other third parties not disclosed above, including potential business partners and advertisers, but this information is not linked to any PII before it is disclosed unless Bioness has obtained your consent. So long as not connected with your PPI, Bioness has no restrictions regarding its use and sharing of data regarding you it has collected.
Bioness has no control over the information collected from or about you by any third party after you have left the Site. By clicking on links to other websites, advertisers and other third parties, you are leaving the Site. Once you have left the Site, Bioness does not control the data collection and privacy practices, or other activities, of any third party linked to or from this Site and Bioness assumes no liability and is not responsible for any practices of such third party locations. Keep in mind that it is always possible that third parties may unlawfully intercept or access transmission of privacy communications and Bioness assumes no liability and is not responsible for any such practices by third parties.
Bioness and/or the Disclosed Parties may send you information such as newsletters and information about products and services, promotional events, marketing events and opportunities to participate in research studies and other activities. If you would like to exercise your right under the CAN SPAM Act to not receive future e-mail correspondence from the sender, except with respect to your transactions (including use of our Site) or communications with us regarding Mandatory Disclosures or as otherwise required by law, you may do so by using a link provided at the bottom of such communications. Subject to Mandatory Disclosures, you may review, change or delete any information that you submitted to Bioness by sending us a letter at the following postal address: Bioness Inc., 25103 Rye Canyon Loop, Valencia, CA 91355 (Attn: Privacy / Legal). You must include your name and a description of the information or preferences you would like to change.
Bioness endeavors to ensure the commercially reasonable protection of user's PII. We have implemented security measures to protect PII collected on our Site against loss, misuse or alteration. However, the Internet is an open system and technology and human operators are not infallible. Accordingly, we cannot and do not guarantee that the individual user information you have transmitted, including PII, will not be intercepted by others and/or decrypted or accidentally disclosed. We cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information transmitted to us over the Internet, and we accept no liability for any unintentional disclosure. In the unfortunate event that your "personal information" (as the term or similar terms are defined by any applicable law requiring notice upon a security breach) is compromised, we may notify you by e-mail (at Bioness' sole and absolute discretion) to the last e-mail address you have provided us in the most expedient time reasonable under the circumstances; provided, however, delays in notification may occur while we take necessary measures to determine the scope of the breach and restore reasonable integrity to the system as well as for the legitimate needs of law enforcement if notification would impede a criminal investigation. From time to time we evaluate new technology for protecting information, and when appropriate, we upgrade our information security systems.
