Privacy Policy

Shine Micro, Inc. respects your privacy and is committed to protect the personal information that you share with us. Generally, you can browse through our website without giving us any information about yourself. When we do need your personal information to provide services that you request or when you choose to provide us with your personal information, this policy describes how we collect and use this information.

Information Collection

Personal information means any information that may be used to identify an individual (including, but not limited to) a first and last name; e-mail address; a home; postal or other physical address; other contact information; title; birth date; gender; occupation; industry; personal interests; other information when needed to provide a service you requested.

When you browse our website, you do so anonymously, unless you have previously indicated that you wish Shine Micro, Inc. to remember your login and password. We don’t collect personal information, including your e-mail address. We do log your IP address (the Internet address of your computer) to give us an idea of which part of our website you visit and how long you spend there. But we do not link your IP address to any personal information unless you have logged in to our website. Like many other commercial websites, the Shine Micro, Inc. website may use a standard technology called a cookie to collect information about how you use the site. See Cookies and Tracking Information for more information.

We collect personal information when you register with Shine Micro, Inc. for an account; when you use certain Shine Micro, Inc. products or services; when you register to attend a seminar or participate in an online survey; when you ask to be included in an e-mail or other mailing list; when you submit information to Shine Micro, Inc. for any other reason. From time to time, Shine Micro, Inc. receives personal information from business partners and vendors. Shine Micro, Inc. only uses such information if it has been collected in accordance with acceptable privacy practices consistent with this policy and applicable laws.

Access to certain Shine Micro, Inc. web pages requires a login and a password. The use of those web pages, and the information or programs downloadable from those sites, may be governed by a written agreement between you and Shine Micro, Inc. Your personal information may be retained by Shine Micro, Inc. to verify compliance with the agreement; log software licenses granted; to track software downloaded from those pages; or track usage of other applications available on those pages.

Please Note

When personal information is collected, we will inform you at the point of collection the purpose for the collection. Shine Micro, Inc. does not intend to transfer your personal information to third parties without your consent, except under the limited conditions described under Information Sharing and Disclosure.

If you choose to provide us with your personal information, we may transfer that information, within Shine Micro, Inc. or to Shine Micro, Inc.’s third party service providers, including across borders and from your country or jurisdiction to other countries or jurisdictions around the world.

We will always give you the opportunity to opt out of receiving direct marketing or market research information. This means we assume you have given us your consent to collect and use your information in accordance with this Policy unless you take affirmative action to indicate that you do not consent, for instance by clicking or checking the appropriate option or box at the point of collection. In some cases, when applicable, we will provide you with the opportunity to opt in. This means we will require your affirmative action to indicate your consent before we use your information for purposes other than the purpose for which it was submitted.

Cookies and Tracking Technology

A cookie is a small data file that certain websites write to your hard drive when you visit them. A cookie file can contain information such as a user ID that the site uses to track the pages you’ve visited, but the only personal information a cookie can contain is information you supply yourself. A cookie can’t read data off your hard disk or read cookie files created by other sites. Some parts of Shine Micro, Inc.’s website use cookies to track user traffic patterns. We do this in order to determine the usefulness of our website information to our users and to see how effective our navigational structure is in helping users reach that information.

How We Use Information Collected

Shine Micro, Inc. uses information for several general purposes: to fulfill your requests for certain products and services, to personalize your experience on our website, to keep you up-to-date on the latest product announcements, software updates, special offers or other information we think you’d like to hear about either from us or from our business partners, and to better understand your needs and provide you with better services. We may also use your information to send you – or to have our business partners send you – direct marketing information or contact you for market research.
