3. Legal Grounds for Processing of Personal Data
MiR may process Personal Data if one of the following options applies:
- Individual/company has given prior consent to processing of his/her/its Personal Data for one or more specific purposes. Note: Under some legislation MiR may be allowed to process Personal Data until an individual objects to such processing (“opt-out”), without having to rely on consent or any other of the following legal bases. This, however, does not apply, when the processing of Personal Data is subject to European Data Protection laws;
- Processing of data is necessary for the performance of a contract and/or for any pre-contractual obligations;
- Processing is necessary for compliance with any legal obligations;
- Processing of Personal Data is necessary to establish, exercise or defend any legal claims;
- Processing is related to a task that is carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in MiR; and/or,
- Processing is necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by MiR or by a third party, if such interests are considered to override individual/company interests or fundamental rights. Such legitimate interests may include MiR’ interests in developing, marketing and selling products and providing services, and pursuing and maintaining business relationship with customers, suppliers, distributors, partners and other business relations.
Upon request, MiR will provide information to clarify the specific legal basis that applies to specific processing activities, and in particular whether the provision of Personal Data is a statutory or contractual requirement, or a requirement necessary to enter into a contract.
Consent & withdrawal of consent. To the extent that MiR’ processing activities are based on the Data Subject’s consent, the Data Subject maintains the right to withdraw his/her/its consent at any time. If Data Subject withdraws his/her/its consent, MiR will cease processing of the Data Subject’s Personal Data, unless and to the extent that continued processing is permitted or required according to the applicable Personal Data legislation or other applicable law. If the Data Subject withdraws his/her/its consent, it will not affect the lawfulness of processing conducted prior to the withdrawal.
Where Personal Data is processed for a public interest, in the exercise of an official authority vested in MiR or for the purpose of the legitimate interests pursued by MiR, an individual may object to such processing by providing a ground related to the individual’s particular situation to justify the objection. However, if Personal Data is processed for direct marketing purposes, an individual can object to such processing at any time without providing any justification by contacting the Data Protection Team.
Notice of statutory or required processing. In cases where MiR processes Personal Data based on a legal obligation or a requirement under a contract or a requirement that must be met in order to enter into a contract, the customer is obliged to provide MiR with the information so that MiR can maintain the customer relationship, fulfil the contract and invoice for our services, etc. If the customer does not wish to provide MiR with the information MiR needs to comply with contractual and/or statutory obligations, the consequence may be that MiR is unable to establish or continue the business relationship.
Individuals are not obliged to provide MiR with Personal Data in all cases, for example, for use in MiR marketing and newsletter distribution. However, in such instances, the individuals will not be able to receive marketing materials and newsletters from MiR.

5. Place and International Data Transfer
The Personal Data is processed at the MiR’ operating offices and in any other places where the parties involved in the processing are located. MiR ensures that: (i) the Personal Data is transferred to countries recognized as offering an equivalent level of protection; or (ii) the transfer is made pursuant to appropriate safeguards that require the recipient to treat the Personal Data in a manner that is essentially equivalent to legal requirements.
Specific rules apply when MiR transfers Personal Data from the EU/EEA to third countries or international organizations. When transferring Personal Data to third countries or international organizations, MiR is obligated to establish appropriate safeguards prior to the transfer, which in practice are established by entering the European Commission’s Standard Contractual Clauses (“EU SCCs”) or by collecting consent from the Data Subject (Art. 49(1)(a) GDPR).
MiR may use electronic communications service providers or share data with partners based outside of EU, including countries where the legal regime for protection of Personal Data might not be as sufficient as within the EU. As an example, transfers to the US may entail that U.S. FISA 702 (surveillance legislation) can require the data to be handed over by U.S authorities. In such a scenario, the legal basis for the transfer is Data Subject consent (Art. 49(1)(a) GDPR).
In accordance with the GDPR, MiR has concluded Data Processing Agreement (DPA) and/or Joint Data Controller Agreement (JDCA) and/or agreements with Standard Contractual Clauses (SCCs) with external parties and affiliated companies, as applicable.
The Personal Data relating to individuals in the United Kingdom (“UK”) maybe processed by MiR in countries outside of the UK. In this regard the UK International Data Transfer Agreement (“IDTA”) and UK Addendum will apply to data transfer from the UK to other countries.
6. Retention Period
The Personal Data collected by MiR shall be processed and stored for as long as required by the purpose for which the Personal Data was originally collected and in accordance with Teradyne Retention Policy. MiR may be permitted to retain the Personal Data for a longer period if MiR has obtained valid consent to the processing activity, to the extent such consent is not subsequently withdrawn. Furthermore, MiR may be obliged to retain Personal Data for a longer period, whenever required to do so for the performance of a legal obligation or where necessary to establish, exercise, or defend a legal claim.
Once the retention period expires, the Personal Data shall be deleted. Therefore, the right to access, the right to erasure, the right to rectification and the right to data portability cannot be accommodated after expiration of the applicable retention period.
7. Individuals’ Rights
Where legally required, MiR shall inform individuals of the purpose of processing their Personal Data, rights to have their Personal Data rectified, deleted or blocked, and the identity of the company responsible for the collection and process their Personal Data.
