InterSystems does not sell your information to third parties for their direct marketing purposes or other consideration.
Generally, InterSystems, headquartered in Cambridge, Massachusetts, United States, is the data controller processing your information. If, however, the data controller processing your information is located in the European Economic Area (EEA), the following applies:
- We may transfer your information to third parties located in countries outside the EEA, including countries which have different data protection standards than those that apply in the EEA. Our worldwide locations can be found at Worldwide Office Locations.
- If those partners or offices located outside the EEA are deemed adequate by the European Commission, we rely on the Commission’s decision to protect your information.
- If those partners or offices located outside the EEA do not have an adequacy decision, we use the European Commission’s Standard Contractual Clauses ( SCCs Controller-to-Controller and SCCs Processor-to-Processor) and/or the UK Information Commissioner’s Office International Data Transfer Agreement ( IDTA Controller-to-Controller) to protect your information.
- When required, InterSystems may disclose your information to law enforcement bodies or regulatory authorities, in order to comply with any legal obligations. For more information about the purposes for which we would collect your information, please see our GDPR Statement.
Controlling Your Information
You are in control of the information you directly provide us. You may also restrict the information gathered from third-party services which may be limited or prevented through browser configuration (examples include “Do Not Track” mode in certain browsers) and managing your privacy preferences on the third-party sites (such as disabling “Promoted content”).
Your Data Protection Rights
Subject to the laws of your country, you have the right to access, correct, delete, or transfer your information which we hold, including your profile and preferences. You also have the right to object to certain processing and, where we have asked for your consent to process your information, to withdraw this consent. You also have the right to object in situations where we process your information based on a legitimate interest; however, this right may be limited in certain circumstances such as when we have a legal obligation to process your information.
