Personal Data We Collect
We collect your Personal Data only when it is provided by you or obtained by us via your affirmative consent. You can visit our Site without telling us who you are or revealing any Personal Data about yourself. However, our Site provides opportunities for you to voluntarily provide us with Personal Data by registering with the Site and creating a login or requesting samples through our request form. If you provide us feedback or contact us via email, we may collect your name, email address, and other Personal Data provided to us in your email or other communication in order to send you a reply.
The Purposes for which SiTime May Use Your Personal Data
SiTime will use your Personal Data for the purpose of marketing, selling, and distributing its own products. Moreover, SiTime gives Site visitors the ability to “opt in” to receive its newsletters, product information, data sheets, and collateral marketing material (collectively, “Materials”). SiTime may use your Personal Data to fulfill your requests for Materials or samples. In the future, SiTime may permit Site visitors to make purchases of SiTime’s products through its Site, using Personal Data to facilitate that service. SiTime also uses your Personal Data to respond to your inquiries relating to employment opportunities, product sales, support, and corporate information about SiTime.
With Whom Do We Share Personal Data and for what Purpose
If you choose to submit Personal Data to us, SiTime may share that Personal Data with
(a) Its distributors, sales representatives, dealers, value added resellers, and other third-parties in SiTime’s distribution channels for their purposes of marketing and supporting our products; and
SiTime may also share with its Processors and advertisers, business partners, and other third-parties Anonymous Data in aggregated form about its Site visitors. For example, we might share that our Site users are “x” percent PC users and “y” percent Macintosh users. SiTime will have the right to use Anonymous Information for any purpose and in any manner. “Anonymous Information” means information that is not associated with or linked to your Personal Data; Anonymous Information does not, by itself, permit the identification of individual persons. Anonymous Information includes non-personally identifiable data we create from Personal Data by excluding information that makes such data personally identifiable.
We display your username and email address (collectively, your “Public Profile”) when you post comments to our blogs or use other community features of the Site (collectively, “Public Areas”). Your Public Profile is available on the Site to other visitors. If you post content to or use Public Areas or send emails or other messages to other users of our Site, you should be aware that any Personal Data you provide in that regard can be read, collected, or used by other users of the Site and could be used to send you unsolicited messages. We are not responsible for the Personal Data you choose to submit in the Public Areas or send to other users.
Cookies and Other Tracking Technologies
We are also using analytical/performance cookies. These cookies allow us and our third-party service providers to recognize and count the number of visitors and to see how visitors move around our website when they are using it. This helps us improve how our website works by, for example, ensuring that users can easily find what they need on our website. These cookies generate aggregate statistics that are not associated with an individualized profile.
We may use clear gifs (otherwise known as web bugs or web beacons) to gather information about your visit to the Site, such as what you click on and pages and information you viewed. Additionally, be aware that advertisers and partners may also use their own clear gifs and we do not control use of these by advertisers and partners and expressly disclaim responsibility for information collected through them. Clear gifs are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies. In contrast to cookies, which are placed on a user’s hard drive, clear gifs are embedded invisibly on web pages.
Your Control of the Use of Your Personal Data
How Long Do We Keep Personal Data?
SiTime will keep Personal Data only as long as it is necessary to accomplish the purpose for which it was originally collected. From time-to-time, SiTime may purge or delete some or all of the Personal Data it keeps in its database in compliance with the foregoing.
SiTime Provides a Means for You to View, Correct and/or Delete Your Personal Data Maintained in SiTime’s Database
You may view, change, or request deletion of any of your Personal Data by contacting the SiTime Data Privacy Officer using the contact information below, but please note that we may be required (by law or otherwise) to keep this information and not delete it (or to keep this information for a certain time, in which case we will comply with your deletion request only after we have fulfilled such requirements). When we delete any information, it will be deleted from the active database, but may remain in our archives.
Measures Employed by SiTime to Protect Your Personal Data in our Possession
In addition to sharing Personal Data with Processors as described above, Personal Data will be shared within SiTime on a “need to know” basis. We have commercially reasonable security measures in place to help protect against loss, misuse, and alteration of your Personal Data in our possession. No method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure, however. Therefore, while SiTime uses reasonable efforts to protect your Personal Data, SiTime cannot guarantee its absolute security. SiTime will contractually require each Processor or other third-party with whom it shares Personal Data to use reasonable measures to protect that Personal Data. However, SiTime cannot monitor these Processors and other third-parties to ensure that they comply.
