We may use the information from these forms, transactions, and applications for the purpose for which it was collected. We also work with certain third parties and, in some cases, personal information will be shared with these third parties in order to pursue the Foundation’s mission and goals.
HOW WE SHARE YOUR INFORMATION
The Masimo Foundation adheres to the highest standards of ethical practices in all of our operations and is dedicated to protecting the privacy of all visitors to our Website. Except as disclosed below, we don’t sell, barter, give away, rent or permit anyone outside of the Masimo Foundation to use or access your personal information.
We occasionally use third-party agents, affiliates and partners to perform functions such as marketing, analytics, providing customer service, etc., on our behalf. These entities have access to the personal information needed to perform their functions and are contractually obligated to maintain the confidentiality and security of any personal information collected from the Website. They are restricted from using, selling, distributing or altering this data in any way other than to provide the requested services to the Website.
We may also use or disclose your personal information if required to do so by law or in the good-faith belief that such action is necessary to (a) conform to applicable law or comply with legal process served on us or the Website; (b) protect and defend our rights or property, the Website or our users, and (c) act under emergency circumstances to protect the personal safety of us, our affiliates, agents or the users of the Website or the public.
The Masimo Foundation strives to protect the transmission of any information submitted by visitors. But no transmission of data is completely secure, and submissions are at the visitor’s risk.
Transfer of Business Assets
At any time, this Site’s host may be acquired, merge with another business, or acquire or buy other businesses or assets. In such transactions, both General and Personal Information will likely be among the transferred assets.
The Site may use “cookies,” a small string of text stored by a web browser on the user’s computer, to determine whether you have visited our Site previously. Cookies also allow the Foundation to measure activity on the Site and to improve your user experience, by, for example, remembering your passwords and viewing preferences and allowing you to visit any member-only parts of the Site without re-registering. Cookies cannot retrieve any other data from a hard drive or obtain an e-mail address. Although a user has the ability to modify most browsers to either accept all cookies, notify the user when a cookie is sent, or reject all cookies, it may not be possible to use certain services on this Site if cookies are not accepted.
The Site does not seek to collect any information from children. If a child provides us with information, the parent or guardian may notify us, and the information will be deleted from our records.
While there is no such thing as “perfect” security on the Internet, we take reasonable steps to ensure the safety of your personal information. This Site has security measures in place to protect loss, misuse, and/or alteration of such information under our control. However, we do not guarantee the security of your General or Personal Information. In addition, we do not assume any liability for third party use of your General or Personal Information, whether obtained legally or illegally from or through this Site.
