1. How we use your Personal Data
We use your personal data to:
- respond to your inquiries
- process your orders
- provide you access to specific information or offers
- support our customer relationship with you
GIGABYTE will not collect any personal data about you (e.g. your name, address, telephone number or e-mail address), unless you voluntarily choose to provide us with it (e.g. by registration, surveys, etc.). GIGABYTE is the sole owner of the information collected on our web sites. Under no circumstances will we share your customer information with anyone other than those directly involved with the purchase and shipment of your order, unless you explicitly give us permission to do so. We may use your e-mail address to notify you of special offers and promotions that you are eligible to participate in as a registered customer. You may opt out of these messages at any time.
2. Limited Disclosure
GIGABYTE will only disclose your personal data in the following circumstances:
- when it’s necessary to prepare and perform a contract with you
- when it’s required by law or the competent governmental or judicial authorities
- when it’s necessary to establish or preserve a legal claim or defense,
- when it’s necessary to prevent fraud or other illegal activities, such as willful attacks on GIGABYTE's web-shop/GIGABYTE IT systems.
When you visit this web-shop, we may store some data on your device in the form of a "cookie" to automatically recognize your device next time you visit. Cookies can help us in many ways, for example, by allowing us to tailor this site to better match your interests or to store your password to save you having to re-enter it each time. If you do not wish to receive cookies, please configure your Internet browser to erase all cookies from your computer's hard drive, block all cookies or to receive a warning before a cookie is stored.
GIGABYTE strives to protect your personal information. For security of transactions, we use the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) protocol, which encrypts any personal information you enter into registration forms on the Application. The encryption process protects your information, by scrambling it before it is sent to us from your computer. We also make commercially reasonable effort to ensure the security of your personal information on our system. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, we cannot warrant the security of any information you transmit to us.
GIGABYTE will not knowingly collect personal data from persons under age 16 without insisting that they seek prior parental consent if required by applicable law. We will only use or disclose personal data about a minor to the extent permitted by law, to seek parental consent pursuant to local law and regulations or to protect a minor.
6. Third Party Service Providers and Websites
In general, the third-party providers used by us will only collect, use and disclose your information to the extent necessary to allow them to perform the services they provide to us. However, certain third-party service providers, such as payment gateways and other payment transaction processors, have their own privacy policies in respect to the information we are required to provide to them for your purchase-related transactions.
