Echelon Online Privacy Policy

As of October 1, 2001, Echelon Corporation updated its Privacy Policy to give you a better understanding of our Privacy Policy and Practice. If you have any questions, please contact privacy@echelon.com.


We at Echelon Corporation and our affiliated companies worldwide ("Echelon") are committed to respecting your online privacy and recognize your need for appropriate protection and management of any Personal Information you share with us.

Echelon has established this Online Privacy Policy so that you can understand how we use and protect your Personal Information.

Personal Information means any information that may be used to identify an individual, including, but not limited to, a first and last name, a home or other physical address, an e-mail address or other contact information, whether at work or at home. In general, you can visit Echelon's web pages without telling us who you are or revealing any Personal Information about yourself. If you make certain purchases from Echelon on the web, or register new purchases with Echelon electronically, we may ask you to provide Personal Information.

NOTICE AND DISCLOSURE

Echelon collects and uses your Personal Information to provide you with the best possible service. We use your Personal Information to complete transactions, process payments, protect against credit card fraud and to communicate with you and provide you with information and updates regarding our products and services.

Third parties provide certain services available on Echelon.com on Echelon's behalf. Echelon may provide information, including Personal Information, that Echelon collects on the web to third party service providers to help us deliver programs, products, information and services. Service providers are also an important means by which Echelon maintains its web site and mailing lists. These third party service providers are obligated to protect your Personal Information on Echelon's behalf, and to comply with this Online Privacy Policy.

We may also provide Personal Information to our business partners who may have products and services that may be of interest to you, and who may use your Personal Information for marketing purposes.

If you choose to provide us with your Personal Information on the web, we may transfer that Personal Information within Echelon, across borders and from your country to other countries around the world. If you are subject to the European Union Data Protection Directive, laws implementing the Directive, or similar laws, you hereby freely consent to the transfer of your Personal Information outside of the European Union to the United States and other countries and to the use of your Personal Information by Echelon as described in this Online Privacy Policy.

Echelon will only transfer your Personal Information without your consent to third parties who are not bound to act on Echelon's behalf if such transfer is legally required, if necessary to protect the rights, property, or personal safety of Echelon, its customers and/or the public, or to Echelon's successors-in-interest.

CHOICE

You may choose whether or not to provide Personal Information to Echelon. If you choose not to provide the Personal Information we request, you can still visit most of Echelon's web sites, but you may be unable to access certain options, offers and services that involve our interaction with you. If you choose to have a relationship with Echelon, such as a contractual or other business relationship or partnership, we will naturally continue to contact you in connection with that business relationship.

When we collect your Personal Information, we will provide a means for you to opt-out of Echelon's sharing your Personal Information with our business partners, and/or Echelon's use of your Personal Information for Echelon's marketing purposes.

SECURITY

Echelon is committed to maintaining the security of your Personal Information, and we take reasonable and appropriate precautions to protect the Personal Information that you share with us from unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration or destruction.
