Aside from the purposes described above, we will never share your personal information with any other third parties unless we have your express permission or under special circumstances, such as when we believe in good faith that the disclosure is required by law.

How We Protect the Security of Your Personal Information
The security of your personal information is very important to us. In our efforts to protect your online transactions, we use a technology called Secure Sockets Layer (SSL). If your browser is capable of SSL (and most are), your personal information will be automatically encrypted, or encoded, before it is sent over the Internet.
Omronhealthcare.com has also obtained a digital certificate from Verisign, Inc., a leading provider of Internet trust services. When you enter a secure portion of our site, which is any page containing any of your personal information, an image of a closed lock or a solid key should appear in the bottom bar of your browser window. If you click on this image, a small pop-up window displaying site-security information will appear. This certificate guarantees that your personal information is being transmitted in secure (encrypted) form to an Omronhealthcare.com web server, not to some unknown or unauthorized server.
How You Can Decide What Marketing Communications You Receive From Us
If you choose to receive periodic communications from us, Omronhealthcare.com may, from time to time, send you email messages describing new items, featured merchandise and special offers. You can choose to stop receiving this email at any time. Simply go to Your Account, sign in, click “Email Address & Password” and remove the check in the box next to the words “Sign Up & Save! Send me email about special offers, rollbacks, new items and other great values.”
The only email messages you will receive from Omronhealthcare.com when you elect not to receive informational emails will be to respond to your customer service inquiries and to answer any other questions you may have about our site. We may also need to send operational emails to inform you of any changes to our site that might affect your personal information, or to announce product recalls.
