Some Services may have Opt-In or Opt-Out options. For the Services that have an Opt-In or Opt-Out option this Section explains how they work.
An Opt-In allows you to decide to allow us to collect and use the described information. If you Opt-In, you are allowing us to collect and use that information.
An Opt-Out allows you to decide not to allow us to collect or use the specifically described information. If you Opt-Out, we will not collect that information; however, if you do not Opt-Out you are allowing us to collect and use the information.
Note: Your selection of Opt-In or Opt-Out only applies to our collection or use of the described information after the point in time you make your selection. For example, if you previously Opted-In to our collection or use of certain information and later change your mind, we will stop collecting or using it going forward, but will retain any of the information previously collected and may continue to use it.
We may collect information about the users of the Services ("User Information") as well as information about the data submitted to, collected via, processed or stored in, transmitted using, or created using the Services (collectively referred to as the "Data").
The information described in this Section is in addition to any information you have allowed us to collect or use through an Opt-In or Opt-Out.
Section 6, How We May Use the Information, explains how we may use the information that is described in this Section 5.
We may collect or use a variety of information about the use of the Services or the Data, including without limitation, specific applications used, file types and sizes, assay types, and consumables and reagents used.
We may use information for a variety of purposes, including without limitation, to improve the Services, improve our other products and services, develop new products and services, conduct transactions with you, and verify compliance with the terms of any agreement between you and us. We may also use the information in any way you expressly allow us.
The Services may offer features that allow you to provide User Information, which could include the user’s personal information, other information, and the Data to others such as through use of a sharing, transfer of ownership, or other similar feature. When using these features, people and organizations who have been provided that information may download, use, store, and further use that information even if you have changed that information, changed your settings, or removed that information later on. If you have given us access to your Data for technical support purposes we will not use your Data except as is necessary to provide technical support. However, if you have shared your Data, transferred ownership of your Data, or used another similar feature to provide your Data to us, we will have the same rights to that Data as any other recipient you could have shared or transferred ownership to.
The Services may allow you to submit or create genomic data or other potentially sensitive information about an individual person ("Data Subject"). Please understand that, unless expressly stated otherwise in the Illumina provided description for the specific Service you are using, the Services may be provided outside of the country where you are located or outside of the country where the Data Subject is from (e.g., you may be located in Canada, but using a Service that is operated in a data center in the United States). Please refer to the Illumina provided description for the specific Service to determine the geographic region where the information may be sent or created.
Please understand that you are responsible for ensuring you comply with applicable law when you submit such information to the Services or use the Services to create such information. This includes a requirement that you obtain any informed consents from such Data Subjects when required by applicable law and authorizations from government or regulatory bodies when required by applicable law.
