How We May Use and Disclose Other Information
Please note that we may use and disclose other information we collect through cookies in accordance with our Intel Cookies and Similar Technologies Notice.
In some instances, we may combine other information with personal information (such as combining your name with your postal code). If we combine any other information with personal information, we will treat the combined information as personal information as long as it is combined.
The Intel Services are designed to provide reasonable organizational, technical and administrative measures to protect personal information within our organization against unauthorized or unlawful access, alteration, disclosure or destruction. Unfortunately, no data transmission or storage system can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. If you have reason to believe that your interaction with us is no longer secure (for example, if you feel that the security of any account you have with us has been compromised), please immediately notify us of the problem by contacting us in accordance with the “Contact Us” section below.
We give you many choices regarding our use and disclosure of your personal information for marketing purposes. You may access and update your contact details and communication preferences by using one of the following methods: visit the specific product or service web site; visit the Intel Subscription Center; visit the Intel Profile Center; use the Contact Us form; or send a letter to the postal address below. You may choose to update your communication preferences for the following types of marketing activities:
You can also unsubscribe from Intel marketing-related e-mails by following the unsubscribe instructions included in each marketing-related email sent to you. We will comply with your request(s) as soon as reasonably practicable. Please also note that if you do choose not to receive marketing-related emails from us, we may still send you important administrative messages (i.e., service notifications).
If you would like to access, correct, update, or delete the personal information that you have provided to us, you may contact us by: visiting the specific product or service web site; visiting the Intel Profile Center; using the online Contact Us form; sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org; or sending a letter to the postal address below including your name, e-mail address, account identification, and purpose of the request.
For your protection, we will only implement requests with respect to personal information about you (not anyone else), and we may need to verify your identity before implementing your request. We will comply with your request as soon as reasonably practicable and in accordance with applicable law. We may need to retain certain information for recordkeeping purposes, as required under applicable legal obligations, and/or to complete any transactions that you began prior to requesting such change or deletion (e.g., when you make a purchase or enter a promotion, you may not be able to change or delete the personal information provided until after the completion of such purchase or promotion). Some of your information may remain within our systems and other records, in compliance with applicable law.
We will retain your personal information for the period necessary to fulfill the purposes outlined in this Privacy Notice unless a longer retention period is required or permitted by law.
The Intel Services are not directed to individuals under the age of thirteen (13), or to minors as otherwise defined in local law or regulation, and do not knowingly collect personal information from these individuals. We request that these individuals do not provide personal information through the Intel Services. However, if you believe that we may have collected personal information from someone under the age of thirteen (13), please let us know using the methods described in the Contact Us section and we will take appropriate measures to investigate and, if appropriate, delete that information.
Like any global company, Intel may transfer your personal information to its parent company, Intel Corporation in the United States (U.S.), or to any Intel group company worldwide when processing that information for the purposes described in this Privacy Notice. We may also transfer your personal information to our third party service providers, who may be located in a different country to you.
Intel complies with the U.S.-EU and U.S.-Swiss Safe Harbor frameworks as set forth by the U.S. Department of Commerce regarding the collection, use, and retention of personal information from the European Union. Intel has certified that it adheres to the Safe Harbor Privacy Principles of notice, choice, onward transfer, security, data integrity, access, and enforcement. While the U.S. may not have data privacy laws that are the same as those in the EU and Switzerland, we will protect the information we receive in the U.S. from the EU and Switzerland in accordance with our Safe Harbor commitments.
