Anonymous Data Collected Through This Web Site

QLogic uses a CRM tool and Google Analytics to collect anonymous information about the use of our website. For example, we use a CRM tool and Google Analytics to track how many visitors access our website, the date and time of their visit, the length of their stay, internet protocol (IP) addresses, internet service provider (ISP), operating system, clickstream data, referring/exit pages, searches, which documents are downloaded and which pages they view on our website. We also use technology to determine which web browsers our visitors use. We use this information, which does not identify individual users, to analyze trends, to administer the website, to track users’ movements around the website and to gather demographic information about our user base as a whole. QLogic uses this anonymous data and may share it with third-parties for various reasons, for example, to improve the content and functionality of our website, to better understand the needs and interests of our visitors, and to improve our programs and services. Use of a “do not track” signal on your browser will prevent QLogic from collecting this anonymous data from you. Other than as described in this Policy, no third parties are permitted to collect your personally identifiable information when you visit our website.

Known User Data Collected Through This Website

We collect the e-mail addresses and certain personal information of those who actively communicate with us via e-mail or at events, purchase our products, download our drivers, fill out a form on our website or register with us to attend a webcast. We also collect certain information regarding which pages users’ access or visit, and information volunteered by the users (such as responses to any surveys QLogic might conduct and/or website registrations).

For known users, we do collect the same information listed above in the anonymous users section and associate it to the personally identifiable information provided by the user.  In addition, the information we collect on the known user may include, but is not limited to, completed forms, attended webcasts, social media activities through the website and frequency of visits.  This allows us to deliver a better experience by reducing the amount of data that needs to be entered when filling out forms, downloading gated content, completing surveys, etc. We may also use personal information to provide known users with pertinent product information, company news, event news, etc. 

We may provide known user personal information to companies that provide services to help us with our business activities, such as our CRM tool. These companies are authorized to use your personal information only as necessary to provide these services to us.

Who We Share Information With

QLogic will not sell, rent, or lease your personal information to others. Except as otherwise described in this Policy, we will share your personal information with third parties only for responding to or fulfilling your requests for products or services, as required to complete transactions with you, or as required by law or legal process.

We may contract with third-party service providers and suppliers to accomplish the activities described under "Types and Uses of Personal Information." Suppliers and service providers are required to keep confidential the information received on behalf of QLogic and to not use the information for any purpose other than to carry out the services they are performing for QLogic.

QLogic or its related entities could be involved in some type of business combination, such as a merger or stock or asset acquisition. If a business combination were to occur, we would make every reasonable effort to notify you in the event we share with the other party to the business combination some or all of your personal information.

You may also receive certain QLogic company-wide communications regarding new products, product updates, product offers or promotions, webcasts, events, newsletters, surveys or market research. We will provide you with the opportunity to "opt-out" of receiving communications that are sent to you by QLogic. You can generally do this by selecting the "opt-out" or "unsubscribe" link, or following the "opt-out" instructions that accompany each communication.
