Sierra Wireless respects your privacy and is committed to protect the personal information that you share with us. Generally, you can browse through our website anonymously without giving us any information about yourself. When we do need your personal information to provide services that you request, this includes any information submitted to our ordering forms, registering a product or subscribing to our mailing lists, Sierra Wireless will use this information to notify you of product upgrades, special offers, and company updates. The information you share with us will be used internally to help us understand your current and future needs. This policy describes how we collect and use your personal information.
If you wish to update or remove your personal information held by us, contact us by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Personal information means any information that may be used to identify an individual, including, but not limited to, a first and last name, email address, a home, postal or other physical address, other contact information, title, occupation, industry, personal interests, other information when needed to provide a service you requested.
When you browse our websites, you do so anonymously, unless you have previously indicated that you wish Sierra Wireless to remember your login and password. We don't automatically collect personal information, including your email address. We do log your IP address (the Internet address of your computer) to give us an idea of which part of our website you visit and how long you spend there. But we do not link your IP address to any personal information unless you have logged in to our website. Like many other commercial websites, the Sierra Wireless website may use a standard technology called a "cookie" to collect information about how you use the site. Please go to "Cookies, Web Beacons and Tracking" below for more information.
Sierra Wireless collects personal information when you register with Sierra Wireless for a Sierra Wireless account, when you use certain Sierra Wireless products or services, when you register to attend a seminar or participate in an online survey, when you ask to be included in an email or other mailing list, or you submit an entry for a contest or promotion, or when you submit your personal information to Sierra Wireless for any other reason. From time to time, Sierra Wireless receives personal information from business partners and vendors. Sierra Wireless only uses such information in accordance with this Policy and applicable laws.
Access to certain Sierra Wireless web pages requires a login and a password. The use of those web pages, and the information or programs downloadable from those sites, may be governed by a written agreement between your employer and Sierra Wireless. Unless you request deletion of your personal information as specified below, your personal information may be retained by Sierra Wireless to verify compliance with the agreement, log software licenses granted, to track software downloaded from those pages, or track usage of other applications available on those pages.
When personal information is collected, we will inform you at the point of collection the purpose for the collection. Sierra Wireless will not transfer your personal information to third parties without your consent, except under the limited conditions described in the section titled "Information Sharing and Disclosure".
If you choose to provide us with your personal information, we may only transfer that information, within Sierra Wireless or to Sierra Wireless' third party service providers with your permission. Upon receiving your permission, we may transfer your information across borders and from your country or jurisdiction to other countries or jurisdictions around the world.
We will always give you the opportunity to "opt out" of receiving direct marketing or market research information. This means we assume you have given us your consent to collect and use your information in accordance with this Policy unless you indicate that you do not consent, for instance by clicking or checking the appropriate option or box at the point of collection. In some cases, when applicable, we will provide you with the opportunity to "opt in." This means we will require your direct consent before we use your information for purposes other than the purpose for which it was submitted.
Cookies, Web Beacons and Tracking
Sierra Wireless may collect non-identifiable information from visits to our Web sites to help us provide better customer service. For example, we keep track of the domains from which people visit, and we also measure visitor activity on Sierra Wireless Web sites, but we do so in ways that keep the information non-identifiable. This information is sometimes known as "click stream data." We use this data to analyze trends and statistics and to help us provide better customer service.
Sierra Wireless Web sites may also use Web beacon or other technologies to better tailor those sites to provide better customer service. These technologies may be in use on a number of pages across our Web sites. When a visitor accesses these pages, a non-identifiable notice of that visit is generated which may be processed by us. These Web beacons usually work in conjunction with cookies.
