We process and distribute information consistent with notice
DiaOseal will collect and use Personal Information consistently with the notices that have been provided.

We provide individuals a way to access and correct their information

We will disclose Personal Information when required by Law or court order
DiaOseal will under certain circumstances permitted or required by law or court order, collect, use, and/or disclose Personal Information pursuant to procedures that do not require giving notice or conducting related activities (for example, in connection with law enforcement investigations).
We will align our Human Resource processes with the DiaOseal policy
DiaOseal will align its Human Resources processes, policies, practices, and guidelines (for information that is collected or used relating to former, current, or prospective employees) to comply with this Policy.
