If we process your personal data because you have given us consent to do so, you may withdraw your consent at any time. The processing of your personal data up until your consent is withdrawn will remain lawful.
If we process your personal data for our legitimate interest, we will only do so if this is necessary for us to conduct our business.
We will retain your personal data only for as long as necessary for the purposes set out in this Privacy Notice. For certain personal data we are bound by legal retention periods or retention periods necessary with a view to legal prescription periods.
After the retention period, we will delete or anonymize your personal data, unless we have another purpose to retain it. We will always only do so if we have a legal ground to retain this personal data and we will make sure that the data is only accessible for that specific purpose.
In case of a dispute between you and Masimo Consumer, we may hold your personal data for a longer period.
We share your personal data with:
Third parties will only use your personal data for the purposes described above and in accordance with our instructions. We only work with processors that provide sufficient guarantees to implement appropriate technical and organizational measures, and to ensure the protection of your rights we have agreements in place governing their use of your information and their relationship with Masimo Consumer.
We may share certain anonymous data with third parties, but this will not be data that can be identified with you. For instance, we may share information about the total number of users for a particular service or product.
We will never sell or rent your information to third parties. All communications to you will come from Masimo Consumer and its companies or brands. We will not share your information with third parties to allow them to market to you unless pursuant to a contract or you have agreed to allow us to do that.
We take the protection of your personal data seriously and take appropriate measures to prevent abuse, loss, misuse, unauthorized access, unwanted disclosure and unauthorized alterations. For example, we have implemented access controls, we use appropriate system and network security measures such as firewalls, encryption and patches, we protect portable devices with appropriate passwords, and all our employees are required to treat your personal data as confidential.
We limit access to your personal information to those who have a genuine business need to access it. Those processing your information will do so only in an authorized manner and are subject to a duty of confidentiality. We also have procedures in place to deal with any suspected data security breach. We will notify you and any applicable regulator of a suspected data security breach where we are legally required to do so.
All information you provide to us is stored on our secure servers. Where we have given you (or where you have chosen) a password which enables you to access certain parts of our site, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We ask you not to share a password with anyone.
No matter the measures we take, unfortunately, no data transmission can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us over the internet, e-mail or other electronic communication methods and therefore you do so at your own risk.
If you have the impression that your personal data is not properly secured or there are indications of misuse, or for other questions, please contact us via the contact details as provided on top of this document.
Depending on where you live, you may have one or more of the following rights in relation to your personal data, subject to exceptions and limitations established by applicable data protection law in the country or jurisdiction you live:
Note that we will have to balance your rights and your request to exercise them against our rights and obligations to process your personal data and to protect the rights and freedoms of others.

Global Privacy Control (GPC) is a browser setting on your browser that notifies websites of your privacy preferences (such as “do not track”/ “do not share” or “opt-out” of the sharing of your personal information without your consent) by sending a signal to the website you visit. Our U.S. website is GPC signal enabled and recognizes your GPC signal preferences. In most cases, to send a GPC signal you will need to adjust your web browser’s settings or add an application or extension to your web browser to enable your browser to send GPC signals. For more information about Global Privacy Control, please visit https://globalprivacycontrol.org/
Some web browsers use other “Do Not Track” (DNT) type signals to communicate that you do not want to have your online activity tracked. Please note, not all browsers offer DNT options and DNT signals are not yet uniform. Therefore, we may not respond to all DNT signals.
We may change this Privacy Notice from time to time. Any changes we may make to this Notice in the future will be posted on this page. Therefore, we recommend checking this page occasionally to see any updates or changes to this Privacy Notice.
