NVIDIA® is committed to implementing appropriate protections for any Personal Information that our users share with us.
What Information We May Collect
When users visit our website, we may collect "Personal information," which is any information that can be used to identify a particular individual, such as name, address, e-mail address, telephone number, or other contact information. When other non-public information, such as product preferences, hobbies or browsing history, is directly associated with personally identifiable information, that other information is also treated as Personal Information.
We collect Personal Information about our users in several ways.
Personal Information You Provide to Us
Most of the Personal Information we receive comes to us voluntarily from our users who are interested in obtaining products and services from us. For example, Personal Information may be collected when you:
- Register or log on to our website;
- Participate in activities on our website, such as a sweepstakes, contests, games and promotional offers;
- Sign up for a newsletter;
- Provide information to our customer service representatives;
- Use our message boards and other public forums on our website;
- Apply for employment online; and
- Purchase cool stuff from NVIDIA's Online Store.
Personal Information Collected Via Technology
The information collected passively through our IT systems is not personally identifiable on its own. However, we may combine that information with other personally identifiable information to better serve you.
Personal Information We Receive From Others
We may receive Personal Information about users from other sources, such as web analytics vendors and marketing consultants. This information supplements any information that we have collected directly from our users, and allows us to customize our website and products to better serve you. Sometimes, we may receive Personal Information about people who are not yet users of our website. NVIDIA's policy is to treat all information obtained from third parties in the same manner that we treat information that we have collected ourselves.
Why We Collect Personal Information
The Personal Information we collect helps us process transactions, respond to requests, and learn about our users' interests in terms of the features, performance and support of our products, and our users' website experience. We also use this information to send newsletters or promotional e-mails regarding new or upgraded products and services. (Please see the section below on Your Choices Regarding Your Personal Information.)
We do not sell Personal Information about our customers or website users to any third parties. We may from time to time share your Personal Information with our business partners, resellers, affiliates, or consulting partners in an effort to better serve you. For example, when you register for a marketing event or contest on our website, we may share your Personal Information with the business partners that help us run the event or contest.
We may, from time to time, share your Personal Information with business partners that help us with our design, manufacturing, integration, delivery, support, payment, and servicing processes. NVIDIA's policy is to prohibit these companies from using your Personal Information for any purpose other than to provide the services expressly requested by NVIDIA.
We may disclose your Personal Information to our e-mail marketing partners, if you choose to receive promotional communications from us. You should contact these partners directly if you have any questions regarding how these partners treat your personal information.
We may disclose your Personal Information if we believe in good faith that such disclosure is necessary to (a) comply with relevant laws or to respond to subpoenas or warrants served on NVIDIA; or (b) to protect and defend the rights or property of NVIDIA or users of our website.
NVIDIA may "de-personalize" Personal Information by removing personally identifiable characteristics, such as name and email address, and aggregate data for use in surveys or other business purposes. NVIDIA may then use and/or share this de-personalized information with third parties.
Your Choices Regarding Your Personal Information
NVIDIA respects your choices about how your Personal Information is used when you register with us, elect to receive our newsletters, or provide us with Personal Information for other purposes.
- If you choose not to provide any Personal Information when requested on the website, you can still enjoy most areas on the website. However, you may be unable to access certain areas and services that require our interaction with you.
- If you choose to provide NVIDIA with your Personal Information, you can "opt-in" to also receive additional communications from NVIDIA, our affiliates or our business partners, such as newsletters, promotional materials, special offers, etc.
We take care to protect the privacy of children under the age of 13 who visit our website.
