We encourage you to review this Privacy Policy regularly to stay informed about our information practices and the choices available to you regarding your personal information. Please also review the Terms of Use linked to the Services that apply to your use of the specific Omron Service.

Additionally, if you are a California resident, you may have additional rights under California law. Therefore, please review the section titled Your California Privacy Rights.

This includes working with third parties such as ad networks that collect personal information via tracking technologies to personalize advertisements on and off our Services and to provide us with data collection, reporting, and ad response measurement. To the extent we or our partners use such technologies on the Services, we offer a “Do Not Sell My Personal Information” opt-out (Cookies Settings), as discussed in the Advertising and Analytics section above.

The rights to know and delete are subject to our being able to reasonably verify your identity and authority to make these requests. In order to verify your identity when you submit a request, we will ask you to provide two (2) or three (3) pieces of personal information to confirm in our records.
