The Site and its Use

The SMART Embedded Computing Inc. ("SMART EC") website ("Site") is owned and provided by SMART EC from its worldwide headquarters in Tempe, Arizona. Each Site is provided for your personal information and non-commercial use. Please feel free to browse the Site; however, your access to and use of the Site is subject to these Terms and all applicable laws. You shall use the Site for lawful purposes only. You shall not post or transmit through the Site any information or material which violates or infringes, in any way, the rights of others, or which is unlawful, threatening, abusive, defamatory, invasive of privacy or publicity rights, vulgar, obscene, profane, harassing, or otherwise objectionable. Nor shall you post or transmit through the Site any information or material which encourages conduct that would constitute a criminal offense, give rise to liability or otherwise violate any law or administrative ruling or guidelines, violate these Terms, or which, without SMART EC's prior written approval, contain advertising or any solicitation with respect to products or services. Any conduct by you that, in SMART EC's opinion, restricts or inhibits any other user from using or enjoying the Site is not permitted. You may only use a crawler to crawl this Site as permitted by this Site’s robots.txt protocol and SMART EC may block any crawlers in its sole discretion.

The Site contains information and materials, including but not limited to, text, software, photos, video, graphics and audio, (collectively "Materials") which are derived in whole or in part from information and materials supplied by SMART EC and other sources, and are protected by international copyright, trademark and other laws and the entire content of the Site is copyrighted as a collective work under the United States Copyright Laws. SMART EC owns the copyright in the overall selection, coordination, arrangement and enhancement of such content, and owns the rights in, or license to use, the individual components of such content. Materials may not be copied, reproduced, republished, modified, uploaded, mirrored, posted, transmitted or distributed in any way or decompiled, reverse engineered or disassembled, including but not limited to the text, images, audio and/or video, as well as any software (including but not limited to any images or files incorporated in or generated by the software or data accompanying such software), except that you may download one copy of the Materials on any single computer for your personal, non-commercial use only, provided you keep intact all copyright, trademark and other proprietary notices and make no change in or deletion of author attribution. This limited authorization is not a transfer of title in the Materials and by your use of the Site, you acknowledge that you do not acquire any license, ownership or other rights to the Materials. Modification of the Materials or use of the Materials for any other purpose is a violation of SMART EC's or such other sources' copyright, trademark and other proprietary rights and may violate other laws. The use of any such Materials on any other website or networked computer or environment is prohibited without SMART EC's express written consent. If you breach any of these Terms, your authorization to use the Site automatically terminates and you must immediately destroy any downloaded or printed Materials.

Privacy Notice

The privacy notice sets out how SMART Embedded Computing, Inc. (“SMART EC”, “we”, “us” and “our”) uses and protects any personal information that you give SMART EC when you use this website (“Site”).

Security

We are committed to ensuring that your privacy is protected. If we ask you to provide certain information from which you may be identified when using the Site, then you can be assured that it will only be used in accordance with this privacy notice. In order to prevent unauthorized access or disclosure, we have put in place suitable physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online. Unfortunately, no data transmission or storage system can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. If you have reason to believe that your interactions with us are no longer secure, please immediately notify us by contacting us at dataprivacy@smartembedded.com.

Information Collection and Use

You can visit the Site without telling us who you are or revealing any information about yourself. Our web servers collect the domain names, not the e-mail addresses, of Site users. In general, we gather information about users of the Site collectively in order to determine, for example, which areas users may access more frequently and which materials users access the most. This information helps us to determine what is most beneficial for our users, and how we can continually create a better overall experience for our users by improving the content of the Site.

SMART EC may collect personal information through our “Live chat”, “My Power” Registration or “My Computing” Registration features. This information can include:

 

  • Name

  • Company Name

  • Email Address

  • Location

  • Job Function

  • Company URL

  • Telephone number

 

This information will be shared with SMART EC and its affiliated companies when appropriate for business purposes. You are not required to provide this information, but without it, SMART EC may be unable to respond to your requests through these additional services.

If you submit any personal information about other people to us, you represent that you have the authority to do so and permit us to use their personal information in accordance with this privacy notice.

Customarily, the personal information SMART EC obtains is used only to respond to inquiries, to process orders, for product registration or to allow the user to access specific account information. We may also ask you to voluntarily provide us with information for market research such as, your interests, demographics, and experience with our products.

By participating in “live chat” or registering under “My Power“ or “My Computing” you have provided SMART EC with permission to submit your information to SMART EC contracted distributors for any further processing if required (i.e. quote requests, order placement, etc.).

When we share personal information with a SMART EC contracted distributor, we require that they first contractually agree to comply with reasonable and appropriate privacy and security standards.

Third Party Websites

This Privacy Notice does not address, and we are not responsible for, the policies and practices of third parties or other organizations that are not SMART EC or its affiliated companies. SMART EC may provide as a convenience to you, links to websites operated by other entities and persons, but makes no representations or warranties whatsoever, nor does it sponsor or endorse, any other website which you may access through this one.

If you use these websites, you do so at your own risk. Links do not imply that SMART EC is affiliated or associated with, or that any linked site is authorized to use any trademark, trade name, logo, or copyright of SMART EC.

Marketing

We will not sell, distribute or lease your personal information to unrelated third parties unless we have your permission or are required by law to do so. We may use your personal information to send you promotional information about third parties which we think you may find interesting.

You can also unsubscribe from SMART EC related messages by following the unsubscribe instructions included in each related message sent to you. We will comply with your request(s) to deactivate your subscriptions and your personal information will be deleted from the system within 30 working days.
