For example, Mindray may sell you a product or offer you a service in a joint marketing
effort with another company (Business Partner). We will let you know that such a
relationship exists and who these companies are prior to processing your data for
such joint marketing efforts.

we share your personal data.
The agreements with these Business Partners will limit the purposes for which your
personal data can be used and disclosed, and will require your personal data to
be adequately safeguarded.
Mindray will disclose personal data only in conformance with this Privacy Notice
and/or when required by law.
From time to time, Mindray may sell a business or a part of a business to another
company. Such a transfer of ownership could include the transfer of your personal
data directly related to that business to the purchasing company.
Once you have provided us with your personal data, you have reasonable access to
that information so that you can update, modify or, if legally possible, delete
it. For My Mindray you may do this by logging into your account and accessing your
"personal settings", where you can also change your preferences relating to how
Mindray communicates with you. You may also make these requests regarding your personal
data by contacting Mindray at firstname.lastname@example.org
You will also be provided with an opt-out opportunity when necessary and we will
comply with any local legislation.
We encourage you to keep your personal settings and personal data complete and current.
We want to know you better so we can serve you better while at the same time respecting
your choices about how we use your personal data.
Your personal data may be transferred from your home country to other Mindray companies,
in different locations around the world, which may communicate with you about Mindray
products, services or special offers that you may be interested in. If local law
requires it, we will ask for prior consent to transfer your personal data outside
of your geographic region.

us know by checking the appropriate box on the registration form or reply card,
or by selecting "opt-out" on emails you receive.
Where local law requires it, we will ask you to "opt-in" or affirmatively consent
to the processing of your personal data. For example, where local law so requires,
we will only send you newsletters if you have subscribed to them. Similarly, where
local law so requires, we will ask you to "opt-in" before using sophisticated profiling
Because Mindray sells thousands of products in hundreds of countries, you may have
previously provided us with your personal data through reply cards, via our call
centres or in some other manner. Your decision not to register now will not affect
the personal data you have already provided to Mindray. Of course, you will always
have the option to unsubscribe from any targeted communication from Mindray or change
your personal profile information.
