As used in this policy, “personal information” means information that would allow a party to identify you such as, for example, your name, address or location, telephone number, or email address.
- Privacy policies and data collection and use policies should be
human readable, comprehensive, and easy to locate;
- Only the minimum amount of information reasonably necessary to
provide you with services should be collected and maintained, and
only for so long as reasonably needed or required;
- Information you provide through our Services, or that we gather as
a result of your use of our Services, should not be used for
marketing or advertising purposes, nor should it be provided
voluntarily (without your permission) to anyone else unless
- If Control Bionics is required to provide a third party with your
personal information (whether by subpoena or otherwise), then
provided we have collected and retained an email address for you,
Control Bionics will use reasonable means to notify you promptly
of that event, unless prohibited by law or is otherwise advised
not to notify you on the advice of legal counsel.

What CONTROL BIONICS Does with Personal Information
Emails and Newsletters. We use the personal information you provide to us when you send us emails or sign up to receive updates from Control Bionics in order to respond to your request – for example, to reply to your email or to send you communications about Control Bionics news.
When you subscribe to updates from us, your email address is sent to and stored in a database hosted on Control Bionics’ servers that can only be accessed by Control Bionics staff and contractors.
If you purchase merchandise from the Control Bionics store (http://store.controlbionics.com), your personal information will be used for the purpose of sending you the items you purchased. If you sign up to receive updates from Control Bionics when you check out from the store, we will use your personal information to send you communications about Control Bionics news and campaigns.
Participating in Our Community
Registered Users. When you register to obtain a user account on any of the Services (any such person, a “Registered User”), you may be asked to provide personal information to create your account and establish a password and profile. We encourage you to use an alias or nickname if you are not comfortable providing your legal name. The name or nickname you provide in connection with your account may be used to attribute you in connection with any content you submit to any Service. We also use that personal information to establish and maintain your account, to provide you with the features we provide Registered Users, and to email you regarding changes to this policy or other applicable policies. If you sign up to receive updates from Control Bionics when you create your account, we will use your personal information to send you communications about Control Bionics news.
Disclosures of Personal Information
In general, it is not Control Bionics’ practice to disclose personal information to third parties. We may share your personal information in two instances:
First, Control Bionics may share personal information with our contractors and service providers in order to maintain, enhance, or add to the functionality of the Services.
If Control Bionics is required to provide a third party with your personal information (whether by subpoena or otherwise), then provided we have collected and retained an email address for you, Control Bionics will use reasonable means to notify you promptly of that event, unless prohibited by law or CONTROL BIONICS is otherwise advised not to notify you on the advice of legal counsel.
Security of Personal Information Collected via the Services
Control Bionics has implemented reasonable measures to protect against unauthorized access to and unlawful interception or processing of personal information that Control Bionics stores and controls. However, no website can fully eliminate security risks. Third parties may circumvent our security measures to unlawfully intercept or access transmissions or private communications. We will post a reasonably prominent notice to the Websites if any such security breach occurs.
Data Usage Policy: Non Personal Browsing and Site Usage Information
Our Data Usage Policy covers how we maintain and use information about you that is collected by our Services, including when you log into our websites using your Control Bionics ID.
Non Personal Browsing Information We Collect
When you use the Services, our servers (which may be hosted by a third party service provider) may collect information indirectly and automatically (through, for example, the use of your “IP address”) about your activities while visiting the Websites and information about the browser you are using. In addition, whenever you use your Control Bionics ID to log into a website, our servers (which, again, may be hosted by a third party service provider) keep a log of the websites you visit and when you visit them.
We use this information for internal purposes only, such as to help understand how the Services are being used, to improve our Services, and for systems administration purposes. CONTROL BIONICS may use a third party analytics provider to help us collect and analyze non personal browsing information through operation of our Services for those same purposes.
No Selling or Sharing
If Control Bionics is required to provide a third party with your non personal browsing information, then CONTROL BIONICS will use reasonable means to notify you promptly of that event, unless CONTROL BIONICS is prohibited by law from doing so or is otherwise advised not to notify you on the advice of legal counsel.
