PRIVACY POLICY

Computer Emphasis is committed to respecting and protecting your privacy. Our website is structured so that you can visit us on the web without identifying yourself or revealing any of your personal information.
However, any personal information that you provide us (any information by which you can be identified), will only be used to support your customer relationship with Computer Emphasis and to ensure that we provide you the best service and treat you with the utmost respect.
This statement regarding the privacy of personally identifiable information you provide online covers the five foundation principles of fair information: Awareness, Choice, Accuracy & Access, Security and Oversight.

AWARENESS
Computer Emphasis provides this Online Privacy Statement in order for you to understand our privacy policy, practices and about the choices you can make in relation to the way your information is collected and used.

WHAT WE COLLECT
When ordering products or services, making requests or registering to receive materials online, the personal information collected at these points are your name, your contact and billing information and transaction and credit card information. In order to tailor our subsequent communications to you and continuously improve our products and services, we may also ask you to provide us with information regarding your personal or professional interests, demographics, experience with our products, and more detailed contact preferences.

HOW WE USE IT
Computer Emphasis uses your information to better understand your needs and provide you with better service. Specifically, we use your information to help you complete a transaction, to communicate back to you, to update you on service and benefits, and to personalize our website for you. Credit card numbers are used only for the purpose of processing payments.

Occasionally, we may contact you for market research or to provide you with marketing information we think would be of particular interest to you. However, we will follow local requirements such as giving you the opportunity to opt out of being contacted for direct marketing or market research.

WHO WE SHARE IT WITH
Computer Emphasis will not sell, rent, or lease your personal information to others. Unless you have given prior consent, we will only share the personal data you provide online with other Computer Emphasis entities and/or business partners who are acting on our behalf for the uses described in “how we use it”. Such Computer Emphasis entities and/or business partners, including those in the Australia and/or any other countries, are governed by our privacy policies with respect to the use of this data and are bound by the appropriate confidentiality agreements.

Data collected online may also be combined with information you provide when you register your ownership of Computer Emphasis products.

CHOICE
Computer Emphasis will not use or share the personal information you have provided in ways unrelated to the ones described above without advising you of this and offering you the choice to decline. As previously stated, we will also provide you the opportunity to let us know if you do not wish to receive unsolicited direct marketing materials and we will ensure that we honor your requests. Local country laws and policies are applied where they differ from those in the Australia.
Your permission is always secured first, should we ever share your information with third parties that are not acting on our behalf and governed by our privacy policy. For example, as part of the Computer Emphasis commitment to offering you the choice, we enable you to make online purchases directly from us or through our resellers. When you choose our resellers, we inform you that your registration and shopping basket data is being transferred to the reseller you selected. This notice is important because when you choose to make an online purchase through our resellers, the use of your registration and shopping basket data by the reseller is then governed by their privacy policy. Local country laws and policies are applied where they differ from those in the Australia.

ACCURACY AND ACCESS
Computer Emphasis strives to keep your personal information accurate at all times. We will provide you with access to your information, including making every effort to provide you with online access to your registration data so that you may view, update or correct your information on the Computer Emphasis website where it was submitted. To protect your privacy and security, we will also take reasonable steps to verify your identity before granting you access to make changes, review details etc. In order to access your personal information, you must return to the web page where you originally entered it and follow the instructions on that particular page. Certain areas of Computer Emphasis web sites may limit access to specific individuals through the use of passwords and through providing personally data.
Links to third party web sites on the site are provided solely as a convenience to you. If you use these links, you will leave the Computer Emphasis site. Computer Emphasis has not reviewed all of these third party sites and does not control and is not responsible for any of these sites, their content or their privacy policy. Thus, Computer Emphasis does not endorse or make any representations about them, or any information, software or other products or materials found there, or any results that may be obtained from using them. If you decide to access any of the third party sites linked to this site, you do so at your own risk.

SECURITY
Computer Emphasis is committed to ensuring the security of your information at all times. To prevent unauthorised access or disclosure, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the appropriate use of information, we have put into place appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online. We use encryption when collecting or transferring sensitive data such as credit card information.
