Microelectronic is committed to protecting your personal information and we comply with the National Privacy Principles (NPPs) set out in the Privacy Act 1988. They provide clear standards for the collection, use, disclosure and storage of personal information which we obtain as part of our business operations.
Collection and storage of personal information.
So that we can provide services to you, we may ask for personal details such as your name, address, telephone number or e-mail address. Some examples of where we may need these details are pre-orders, competitions & promotions.
Privacy law requires us to collect personal information about you only from you if it is reasonable and practical to do so.
Microelectronic takes measures to ensure your personal information is protected from unauthorised access, loss, misuse, disclosure or alteration. We also take measures to destroy or permanently de-identify personal information when it is no longer required. The types of measures we take vary with the type of information, and how it is collected and stored.
Generally, you have no obligation to provide any information requested by us. If you choose to withhold requested information however, we may not be able to provide you with the goods and services that depend on the collection of that information, particularly if the collection of that information is required by law.
Use of personal information.
The personal information that we ask for may be used for general or specific marketing and promotional purposes.
We may also use your personal information to recognise you and respond to your enquiries or requests more efficiently the next time you visit our website. Finally, we may also use technical information to help identify you in order to personalise your interaction with our website and for website diagnostic purposes. You have the right to tell us that you do not want to receive information from us other than for the main purpose for which we have collected your personal details.
Where possible, we try to ensure that our disclosure of information to other organisations (for example market researchers, and others with whom we have commercial arrangements) is in a way which does not personally identify individuals.
We will provide you with access to any of your personal information we hold (except in the limited circumstances recognised by privacy law).
If you require access to your personal information, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. Before we provide you with access to your personal information we will require some proof of identity. For most requests, your information will be provided free of charge, however we may charge a reasonable fee if your request requires a substantial effort on our part.
If you need to update your information (e.g. if you change your address), please contact the relevant division of Microelectronic to which you supplied that information so we can make the change.
