Additional uses of personal data
In addition to the uses described above, we may use your personal data for the following purposes. Some of these uses may, under certain circumstances, be based on your consent, may be necessary to fulfill our contractual commitments to you, are necessary to serve our legitimate interests in the following business operations, or to comply with our legal obligations:
We share personal data with the following categories of recipients.
Service Providers: We may disclose your personal data to third-party service providers to provide us with services such as website hosting, professional services, including information technology services and related infrastructure, customer service, e-mail delivery, auditing and other similar services.
Affiliates: We may disclose personal data to our affiliates for the purposes described in this Privacy Notice, including for their marketing purposes, and to be consistent with our goal of providing our the superior customer service and engagement experience that our customers have come to expect from us around the world.
Authorized Distributors: In some regions, we sell our products through distributors rather than directly to buyers. In these regions, we may disclose personal data in order to provide the Services, complete transactions, address product deliver and warranties.
To Perform Customer Services: We may disclose personal data to third parties in order to perform services you request or functions you initiate, such as when you post information and materials on message boards and forums.
Corporate Transactions or Events: We may disclose your information to a third party in connection with a corporate reorganization, merger, sale, joint venture, assignment, transfer or other disposition of all or any portion of our business, assets or capital, including in connection with any bankruptcy or similar proceedings.
Other Legal Reasons: In addition, we may use or disclose your personal data as we deem necessary or appropriate: (1) under applicable law, including laws outside your country of residence; (2) to respond to requests from public and government authorities including public and government authorities outside your country of residence; (3) to comply with subpoenas and other legal processes; (4) to pursue available remedies or limit damages we may sustain; (5) to protect our operations or those of any of our affiliates; (6) to protect the rights, privacy, safety or property of Hologic, our affiliates, you and others; and (7) to enforce our terms and conditions.
We retain personal data pursuant to our records retention program, for as long as is necessary for the purposes set out in the Hologic Privacy Notice, unless a longer period is required under applicable law or is needed to resolve disputes or protect our legal rights, in accordance with the principles set forth in Article 5(1) of the GDPR.
The criteria used to determine the period for which personal data about you will be stored varies depending on the legal basis under which we process such personal data:
|Legitimate Interests||For a reasonable period of time based on the particular interest, taking into account the fundamental interests and the rights and freedoms of the data subjects.|
|Contractual Necessity||For the duration of the contract plus some additional limited period of time that is necessary to comply with law or that represents the limitation period for legal claims that could arise from the contractual relationship.|
|Legal Obligation||For the duration of time we are legally obligated to keep the information.|
|Consent||For the period of time necessary to fulfill the underlying agreement with you, subject to your right, under certain circumstances, to have certain personal data about you erased (see Data Subject Rights below).|
We may face any threat of legal claim and in that case, we may need to apply a “legal hold” that retains information beyond our typical retention period. In that case, we will retain the information until the hold is removed, which typically means the claim or threat of claim has been resolved.
Any information that you provide to us is stored and processed in, and transferred between, any of the countries in which Hologic and its agents, contractors and affiliated organizations have offices, in order to enable Hologic to use that information as set out in this Privacy Notice.
Not all of these countries have data protection laws equivalent to those in force in the EEA. In order to ensure the protection of your personal data outside of the EEA we have put in place or ensured at least one of the following safeguards:
We seek to use reasonable organizational, technical and administrative measures to protect personal data within Hologic. Unfortunately, no data transmission or storage system can be guaranteed to be secure at all times. If you have reason to believe that your interaction with us is no longer secure, please immediately notify us in accordance with the “Contact Us” section below.
Individuals whose personal data we process subject to the GDPR have certain rights as required by law, including the right of access, erasure and data portability, as well as the right to rectification, to restrict processing, to withdraw consent, and to object to processing as follows.
Access: Individuals have the right to know if we are processing personal data about them and, if so, to access and obtain a copy of personal data about them, as well as information relating to the processing of that data.
Rectification: Individuals have the right to have us correct or update any personal data about them that is inaccurate or incomplete without undue delay.
Restriction: Individuals have the right to restrict or limit the ways in which we process personal data about them where the accuracy of the personal data is contested by them, where data has been obtained by us unlawfully, where the individual has objected to our processing of the data (see right of objection below) and we are considering whether to cease processing, or where we no longer need to process the personal data.
Objection: Individuals have the right to object to our processing of their personal data where we are relying on legitimate interests as our legal basis and their rights override our legitimate interests in processing their personal data. Individuals also have the right to object to our processing of their personal data for direct marketing purposes.
Withdrawal of Consent: Where we rely on consent as the basis for processing personal data, individuals have the right to withdraw their consent.
Erasure: Individuals have the right to request deletion or erasure of their personal data in a number of circumstances where required by law. These include where we no longer require the personal data for the purposes for which it was collected, the individual has withdrawn consent, or where we are relying on legitimate interests as a legal basis and the individual’s rights override our legitimate interests.
Portability: Individuals have the right to obtain a copy of the personal data we hold about you in a structured machine-readable format and to have it transmitted to another controller. This right only occurs where we are relying on your consent or performance of a contract as our legal basis and the processing is carried out automatically.
Make a Complaint: Individuals also have the right to make a complaint about our personal data handling practices to their local Supervisory Authority (https://ec.europa.eu/newsroom/article29/item-detail.cfm?item_id=612080)
