Privacy Policy

Your privacy is critically important to us. At Kontron, we have a few fundamental principles:

  • We are thoughtful about the personal information we ask you to provide and the personal information that we collect about you through the operation of our website (the “Site”).
  • We store personal information for only as long as we have a reason to keep it.
  • We aim for full transparency on how we gather, use, and share your personal information.

Below is our Privacy Policy, which incorporates and clarifies these principles.

What This Policy Covers

This Privacy Policy applies to information that we collect about you when you use our Site and associated features, including

Below we explain how we collect, use, and share information about you, along with the choices that you have with respect to that information.

Information We Collect

We only collect information about you if we have a reason to do so — for example, to respond to your online submission, or to make our Site better. We collect this information from two sources: if and when you provide information to us, and automatically through operating our Site. Let’s go over the information that we collect.

Information You Provide to Us

We may collect some or all of the following types of information that you provide to us directly via online forms:

  • Company and personal names and job title
  • Contact information
  • Your enquiry / request / message
  • Other information relevant to enquiry / request

Information We Collect Automatically

We may collect certain information automatically when you use our Site, such as your Internet Protocol (IP) address, device and advertising identifiers, browser type, operating system, internet service provider, pages that you visit before and after using the Site, the date and time of your visit, information about the links you click, the pages you view, the general manner in which you navigate the Site, and other standard server log information. We may also collect certain location information when you use our Site, such as your computer’s IP address, your mobile device’s GPS signal, or information about nearby Wi-Fi access point and cell towers.

How and Why We Use Information

Purposes for Using Information

We use information about you for the purposes listed below:

  • To provide and improve the Site;
  • To contact you;
  • To fulfill your requests for products, services and information;
  • To send you newsletters or promotional materials from us or on behalf of our affiliates and trusted third-party partners;
  • To analyze the use of the Site and user data to understand and improve the Site;
  • To customize the content you see when you use the Site; and
  • For any other purposes disclosed to you at the time we collect your information or pursuant to your consent.

How We Share Information

We share information about you in limited circumstances, and with appropriate safeguards on your privacy. These are spelled out below:

  • Corporate affiliates: If you agree, we may share your information with our corporate affiliates that are subject to this policy.
  • Business transfers: We may share your information in connection with a substantial corporate transaction, such as the sale of a website, a merger, consolidation, asset sale, or in the unlikely event of bankruptcy.
  • Legal purposes: We may disclose information to respond to subpoenas, court orders, legal process, law enforcement requests, legal claims or government inquiries, and to protect and defend the rights, interests, health, safety, and security of our company, our affiliates, users, or the public.
  • With your consent or at your direction: We may share information for any other purposes disclosed to you at the time we collect the information or pursuant to your consent or direction.

How Long We Keep Information

We securely store your data at servers located in TGT Hong Kong Data Center 2 protected with SSL encryption, dynamic web application firewall, 24/7 real-time server monitoring and intelligent data resources protection.
We generally discard information about you when it’s no longer needed for the purposes for which we collect and use it – described in the section above on How and Why We Use Information – and we’re not legally required to keep it.
For example, we keep your log records to our Site, like your IP address, browser type, and operating system, for approximately 30 days. Once this time period has expired, the web content management system will delete your data automatically.
As another example, we keep your information from Sales & General Enquiry Form and Technical Support Request Form for approximately 12 months. We manually delete the data whose retention period has been reached once a month.
For the information from Newsletter Signup Form, we retain it for as long as you do not unsubscribe from receiving the newsletters from us.

Security

While no data storage system or transmission of data over the Internet or any other public network is 100% secure, we work very hard to protect information about you against unauthorized access, use, alteration, or destruction, and take reasonable measures to do so. We monitor our Site for potential vulnerabilities and attacks.

Choices

You have several choices available when it comes to information about you:

  • Opt out of marketing communications: You may opt out of our email newsletters by clicking the “unsubscribe” at the bottom of each newsletter and following the subsequent instructions.
  • Set your browser to reject cookies: You may be able to refuse or disable cookies by adjusting your web browser settings. Because each web browser is different, please consult the instructions provided by your web browser (typically in the “help” section). Please note that you may need to take additional steps to refuse or disable Local Shared Objects and similar technologies. For example, Local Shared Objects can be controlled through the instructions on Adobe’s Setting Manager page. If you choose to refuse, disable, or delete these technologies, some of the functionality of the Site may no longer be available to you.

Your Rights

You can have the right to request access to, update or correction of your data. If you are located in a country that falls under the scope of the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), data protection laws give you the right to request to have your personal information deleted or restricted and ask for portability of your personal information. To request to exercise any of these rights, please email us at MarketingAsia@kontron.com.
