KOPIN Corporation and its subsidiaries and affiliates (collectively, “KOPIN”) are responsible for this website, and we are committed to respecting the privacy of visitors.

Does this Notice apply to all KOPIN Websites?

This Privacy Notice applies to visitors of KOPIN websites that link to this specific Privacy Notice. Individual websites for KOPIN entities, services and products may adopt different privacy notices because the transactions taking place on those websites may be different. If a KOPIN website has its own privacy notice, the provisions of that notice apply to that website.

What personal information does KOPIN collect?

Information collected through our website analytics in the US only: KOPIN monitors user traffic patterns throughout the website according to a user’s domain name, browser type, date and time of access, and pages viewed. This information is collected in order to measure the number of visitors to our website and to determine which areas users find useful based upon the traffic to particular areas. KOPIN uses this information to enhance visitors’ experience and to better prepare future content based on the interests of visitors. Note that these analytics are only used for visitors from US locations.

Information collected directly from you: A visitor to our website may be asked to provide personal information to receive a response or some other service from KOPIN.

If you choose not to provide any of the personal information requested, KOPIN may be unable to complete the transaction you have requested.

How does KOPIN use cookies or other tracking technologies?

KOPIN uses cookies on this website. Cookies are small text files sent to and stored on users’ computers that allow websites to recognize repeat users, facilitate users’ access to websites and allow websites to compile aggregate data that will allow content improvements. Cookies do not damage users’ computers or files. If you do not want cookies to be accessible by this or any other KOPIN website, you should adjust the settings on your browser program to deny or disable the use of cookies. The cookies that KOPIN uses on this site do not identify you. The cookies simply provide KOPIN with aggregate, anonymous analytics about the number of people visiting pages on this website.

This website may also use web beacons. A web beacon is usually a pixel on a website that can be used to track whether a user has visited a particular website to deliver targeted advertising. Web beacons are used in combination with cookies, which means that, if you turn off your browser’s cookies, the web beacons will not be able to track your activity. The web beacon will still account for a website visit, but your unique information will not be recorded.

KOPIN may also use cookies and similar technology placed by one of our business partners to enable KOPIN to learn which advertisements bring users to our website. For more information about cookies and other tracking technologies, Click Here.

Do Not Track

Do Not Track (DNT) is a privacy preference that users can set in some web browsers, allowing users to opt out of tracking by websites and online services. At the present time, the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) has not yet established universal standards for recognizable DNT signals, and therefore, the Site and KOPIN do not recognize DNT.

In some instances, KOPIN may provide links to non-KOPIN controlled websites, which KOPIN will make reasonable efforts to identify as such. KOPIN does not control such third-party websites and cannot be responsible for the content or the privacy practices employed by other websites.

California Business Contact Information:

If you are a California resident and we receive your Personal Information in the form of contact details from business events, for example as part of a business appointment (e.g., by exchanging business cards) or as part of any other form of collaboration, we may use your contact and business details to maintain our business contacts. For this purpose, we may transfer your contact details to our internal database.  Pursuant to the California Consumer Privacy Act, as amended by the California Privacy Rights Act (collectively, “CCPA”), you have privacy rights with respect to your business contact Personal Information.

  • Details on your profession (e.g., job title, position, personnel number, place of work, branch office, department, qualifications).

This data processing is based on our legitimate business interests. We have a legitimate economic interest in maintaining contacts beyond the initial context and in using them to establish and develop a business relationship and to remain in contact with the parties concerned.

Such business contacts could also be easily processed in our email communications with you and then kept in typical business software, either centrally or on the electronic devices of our employees.  

California law provides you with the following rights with respect to your personal information:

  • The right to know what personal information we have collected, used, or disclosed about you.

If we do have your personal information (other than that provided in your request), we will seek to verify your identity based on the personal information that we already have; the data we will request will depend on the nature of the personal information we have about you. Once we verify your identity, we will provide you with a response, indicating how we will satisfy your request or why we cannot comply with your request.
