Stereotaxis maintains physical, technical, and administrative safeguards to protect your personal information and only allows disclosures as permitted by law to assist in providing products or services. We may also collect product and service information and provide these statistics to others in an aggregate form where the information has been de-identified.
Stereotaxis will retain and use the personal information collected for the above-mentioned processes and processing purposes in accordance with legal obligations.
Stereotaxis’ legal basis for collecting and retaining personal data depends on the processing purposes and the jurisdictional legal requirements. Where the personal information collected involved is of EU citizens, in general, we use the following basis:
- Consent to use the personal information, e.g. where this involves (digital) direct marketing activities and where we would like to use a photo, video or audio recording with identifiable individuals for external publishing;
- Establishment or performance of a contract, e.g., where we enter into a contract with a party and we collect contact information and signatures;
- Compliance with a legal obligation, e.g., where we need to disclose consumer details for compliance with (local or industry) laws such as the Physician Payments Sunshine Act or for compliance with the Medical Device Regulation;
- Legitimate interests of Stereotaxis, e.g., where Stereotaxis collects contact information and preferences to create an optimal user experience for its customers;
- Public interest or for the exercise of public authority in strictly limited cases, e.g., where we would be required to cooperate with the police or other government bodies in case of illegal conduct;
- For the establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims, e.g., for court cases;
- For scientific or research purposes, e.g., for clinical research studies with sufficient safeguards safeguarding confidentiality;
- For preventative and occupational medicine and medical diagnosis pursuant to a contract with healthcare professionals under a legal obligation of confidentiality;
- For public interest in the public health to ensure high standards of quality and safety of healthcare and products; and
- Where the individual chooses to disclose the personal information publicly by its own initiative.
If you choose not to provide the personal information we reasonably require, it may hinder Stereotaxis’ ability to provide the information or services you have requested.
To the extent personal information is transferred out of the country where the owner of that personal information lives, such as to affiliates or business partners in other countries, including Stereotaxis’ headquarters in the United States, different standards may apply to how your data is used and protected in those countries. Stereotaxis has appropriate safeguards in place in accordance with applicable legal requirements to ensure that data is adequately protected irrespective of the country. This includes obtaining written assurances from any third party given access to your data, so as to require them to adopt standards that ensure an equivalent level of protection for data as that adopted by Stereotaxis and standardized contractual measures (based on the European Commission Model Clauses) for internal data transfers to Stereotaxis affiliates in third countries that are deemed to provide an inadequate level of data protection.
Privacy Statement for Children
The privacy of children is of the utmost importance to us. Stereotaxis will not intentionally collect personal information from anyone we know to be under the age of 16 without the prior, verifiable consent from his or her legal representative. If you are under the age of 16, please refrain from using Stereotaxis’ sites or applications. To the extent Stereotaxis becomes aware that data has been collected of a minor under this Statement, such information shall be expunged from Stereotaxis’ systems. If you think we have collected personal information from a child under the age of 16, please contact us.
Retention of Information
Stereotaxis will retain your personal information for as long as reasonably necessary to comply with legal obligations or for no longer as required for legitimate business purposes consistent with its document retention schedules if applicable. As such, we may retain your information as necessary to comply with its legal, regulatory and/or ethical obligations, to resolve disputes, exercise our rights, conduct internal research, maintain records, or enforce and comply with our agreements.
Disclosure of Information
Stereotaxis will not share your personal information collected with unrelated third-parties without your permission, except as otherwise provided in this Privacy Statement. Stereotaxis does not sell your information to third-parties.
In the usual course of business, Stereotaxis may share some personal information with companies that we hire to perform services or functions on our behalf. For example, we use third-parties for hosting of our websites, which are responsible for processing your information. We may also use vendors or suppliers to ship products that you order. In these situations, vendors and third-parties may have limited access to your information; however, we will not authorize them to keep, disclose, or use your information with others except for the purpose of providing our contracted or requested services. Such companies are also legally bound by contracts and other mechanisms to only use your information as directed by Stereotaxis and to keep your information private in accordance with the law.
Stereotaxis may also disclose your information to the extent required or provided by law in a designated jurisdiction, or to protect its legal rights or property.
Stereotaxis maintains physical, technical and administrative controls to protect your personal information from unauthorized access, use and disclosure. Stereotaxis evaluates these safeguards on an ongoing basis to help minimize risks from new security threats as they become known.
You may request details on the personal information that we hold about you. If you believe that any personal information we are holding about you is incorrect or incomplete, please contact us as soon as possible, at the address below.
