  1. Sharing of Personal Data

How we share personal data collected in a particular situation will depend on factors including the nature of the personal data, the purpose and context of the collection, and applicable law.  Subject to such factors, we may share personal data categories described above for the purposes described above as described below.

  • We may disclose personal data about you (i) if we are required to do so by law or legal process, (ii) to law enforcement authorities under appropriate circumstances, or (iii) when we believe disclosure is necessary or appropriate for the health and safety of any person, to prevent harm or loss or in connection with an investigation of suspected or actual illegal activity.
  • We may share personal data with companies that assist us with the use and disclosure of personal data described in this policy. Examples include suppliers, payroll and management administration companies, data backup companies, email service providers and technical support providers.
  • We may transfer personal data in connection with a corporate transaction, business sale, merger, consolidation, divesture, change in control, transfer of substantial assets, bankruptcy, liquidation or reorganization, or as part of a pre-transaction review in relation to these transactions. Whether the recipient of data in these cases will handle the data pursuant to this Privacy Policy, depends on applicable law and other factors.
  1. International Transfers of Personal Data

The recipients of the personal data disclosures described in the “How we share your personal data” section above may be located in the United States or elsewhere in the world.  Privacy laws in these countries may not provide protections equivalent to those of your country of residence, and your government may or may not deem such protections adequate.

  1. Legal Basis for Handling your Personal Information

The laws in some jurisdictions require companies to tell you about the legal ground they rely on to use or disclose your personal data.  To the extent those laws apply, our legal grounds are as follows:

  • Meet our contractual obligations to our customers or take steps at customers’ request in anticipation of entering into a contract with them.
  • Consent: Where required by applicable law, and in some other cases, we handle personal data based on your implied or express consent.
  • Legitimate interests: In many cases, we handle personal data on the ground that it furthers our legitimate interests in commercial activities such as the following in ways that are not overridden by the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the affected individuals:
    • Customer service
    • Marketing
    • Analyzing and improving our business
    • Processing job applications
    • Managing legal issues
  1. How Long We Keep Personal Data

We generally retain personal data for so long as it may be relevant to the purposes above.  To dispose of personal data, we may anonymize it, delete it or take other appropriate steps. To comply with legal and regulatory requirements, data may persist in copies made for backup and business continuity purposes for additional time.

  1. Under Age Policy

It is not our intention to collect personal information from anyone under 18 years of age. If you are under 18 years of age, you may use this Web site only with the consent of a parent.

  1. Your Rights and Choices

Individuals in certain jurisdictions have legal rights to obtain confirmation of whether we hold personal data about them, to access personal data we hold about them (including, in some cases, in portable form), and to obtain its source, correction, purpose of collection, update, amendment or deletion in appropriate circumstances.  They may also object to our uses or disclosures of personal data, request a restriction on its processing, or withdraw any consent, though such actions typically will not have retroactive effect.  They also will not affect our ability to continue processing data in lawful ways.

To exercise any of the above rights or choices (or any other rights under applicable law), please contact us as described at the end of this Privacy Policy.

The rights and options described above are subject to limitations and exceptions under applicable law.  In addition to those rights, you have the right to lodge a complaint with the relevant supervisory authority.  However, we encourage you to contact us first, and we will do our very best to resolve your concern.

We may change this Privacy Policy to reflect changes in the law, our data handling practices or the features of our products and website.  The new version will be posted at microvision.com.  We will indicate at the bottom of the policy when it was updated.  Where required by applicable law, we will apply changes only with your consent.
