Your right to privacy is very important. Intersil understands the information you entrust to us must be treated in a responsible manner and consistent with the uses we define when we ask for it and those to which you consent. We have developed a policy to protect the use of your information to ensure any information collection will be done with the express purpose of better servicing you and providing you with a more effective and personalized visit to our sites.

Personal Information Collection — What, When, Why

Generally, when you visit our website and request information, you remain anonymous. There are times when we will ask for additional information or require you to be registered to enter a specific area on our website. The key tenets of our information policy include the following:

  • Whenever additional information is requested, we will explain how this information will be used.
  • The information form will clearly indicate which information we require and which is optional.
  • When you register, we will provide the opportunity to accept or decline subscriptions to newsletters, contests or other special offers. Each message from Intersil will have complete information on how to unsubscribe to that particular communication series.
  • We will provide you with the capability to unsubscribe or change, modify or delete your information from our database.

Protecting Your Information

We will take the necessary steps to protect your data.

  • When sensitive information (such as credit card information in order to make a purchase) is forwarded to us, we will take reasonable steps to protect it such as encrypting the card number.
  • We will also take steps to secure your information while in storage at Intersil.
  • We will not share your information with anyone outside Intersil Corporation or with a third party with the exception of our Business Partners such as those with whom we contract to deliver specific services to you. Services these Business Partners could include, among others, customer support and shipping of a requested or purchased item.
  • There are links from our website to other websites with which we have no operating agreement and over which we do not have control. Please consult the Privacy Statements of these other websites to learn more about their policies.

This Website Uses Google Adwords

This website uses the Google AdWords remarketing service to advertise on third party websites (including Google) to previous visitors to our site. It could mean that we advertise to previous visitors who haven't completed tasks associated with the collection of data, such as completing and submitting a contact form to make an inquiry. Marketing to previous visitors may appear in the form of advertisement on the Google search results page, or a site in the Google Display Network. Third-party vendors, including Google, use cookies to serve ads based on someone's past visits to the Intersil website. Of course, any data collected will be used in accordance with Intersil's privacy policy and Google's privacy policy.

You can set preferences for how Google advertises to you using the Google Ad Preferences page, and you can opt out of interest-based advertising entirely by cookie settings or permanently using a browser plugin.
