The privacy policy outlined below applies to all current and former Chip Nexus website visitors, registered users, and their affiliates.

Information Collection

Chip Nexus collects personal information (e.g. name, title, company, email address, etc.) during user registration. We will also collect a minimal set of personal information from unregistered visitors requesting certain public services or information.

When using our website as a registered user, we will collect business information necessary to deliver the specific service(s) you are using. This information will remain securely accessible only to each user and those explicitly given access by the user.

Our site also utilizes a standard web technology called cookies to collect information (e.g. date, time, pages viewed, etc.) related to how our website is used.

Information Usage

Chip Nexus will not sell, rent, trade, or lease your information to others unless we have requested and have received your permission, or are required to disclose it by law. We may from time to time request permission to publish registered company names on selected website pages and promotional materials to illustrate the interest and value of the broad nexus of users.

Information provided by the user(s) at each company is used to restrict access to only the pages, services, and data for which each user is authorized. Any information provided, viewed, or generated while logged into this secure environment remains restricted to being accessed by only the authorized owner(s) of the informaion unless otherwise explicitly tagged with owner-specified sharing attributes.

Chip Nexus will sometimes use your contact information to send you certain mandatory service communications such as registration authentication, technical service information, product updates, and security announcements. Users will have the ability through their profile and/or services settings to control all non-critical communications.

Finally, "cookies" and other similar Web tools are used to enhance your experience at our website. If you do not wish to transmit "cookie" information, you may turn off the cookie function in your web browser.

Data Protection

We are committed to ensuring the security of your information. We use state-of-the-art processes such as encryption to ensure that sensitive data are protected while transmitted to/from the Chip Nexus website. The web server architecture is designed to protect client data in a database that will use an SQL server security model and reside behind a firewall, eliminating direct access by the outside world. There are also appropriate security measures in place in our physical facilities to prevent loss or unauthorized use of sensitive information.

We do not make any representations or warranties about any such websites. They are independent from us and we have no control over, or responsibility for, their information or activities.
