As such, we encourage you to read our Statement carefully and should you have any questions or concerns, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or at the address listed below before proceeding to use our Website.
We may update this Privacy Statement from time to time by posting a revised Statement on our Website that reflects a new “Effective Date.” You are encouraged to stay informed of our privacy practices by frequently visiting this area of our Website. Your continued use of our Website after we make any changes means that you consent to those changes.
Please note that our Website may include links to other websites that we do not operate or maintain, and whose privacy practices may differ from ours. This Statement applies only to Pure Wafer’s processing activities and does not apply to any processing activities associated with any other websites or any information processed or collected by us offline.
The types of information we collect include:
When you click “Buy Online” on our Website, you are redirected to our online store, which Oracle NetSuite (“Oracle”) hosts on our behalf. Once there, you may be asked to register an account with us and to enter your contact, payment and other information in order to complete the purchase of one of our products or services.
The information that you provide in each case will vary. In some cases, you may be able to provide information via email or free text boxes, such as contacting Pure Wafer to request further information. When providing your information, please provide only relevant information and do not provide unnecessary sensitive information, such as Social Security numbers or other sensitive personal data, unless required for our services.
Automated Information Collection. When you visit our website, open an email that we send you, or interact with us on social media platforms, we may also automatically collect information about you by automated means. In some instances, we may also allow third party advertisers and service providers to collect information about you through automated means. Some of the technologies behind this automated collection include::
Such technologies may permit collection of data elements such as demographic data, browser type, MAC address and other unique device information, operating system type and settings, domain, the address of the web page that linked you to our Website, IP address, pages visited, whether you have visited us before or are new to our Website, activities conducted on a particular webpage (such as search queries), and the day and time of your visit. If you access our website from a mobile device, we may collect your precise location using GPS, cell tower, Bluetooth, or WiFi signals. This information may be correlated to other data that identifies you specifically.
While most web browsers offer settings that will allow you to disable or delete cookies, if you do so, you may not be able to use our Website fully. If you make this change after you have visited our website, you may also have to manually delete existing cookies from your computer or other device.
Our Website may also contain embedded plugs-ins, widgets, pixels, or other programming associated with various external social media platforms (e.g., LinkedIn, Facebook, Google+, and Twitter). When you encounter those embedded objects, your web browser may establish a direct connection to the social media platform’s services and in doing so, share information such as your behavior while browsing our Website, your public profile, and content you may have posted publicly. This Privacy Statement does not apply to the privacy practices of external social media platforms.
We collect your information primarily to carry out, market and improve our business, and to respond to and fulfill your product and service orders, inquiries and other needs. We also collect your information so that we can:
We may also use and share your information in an anonymized, de-identified or aggregate format for many purposes, such as market research, data analytics and modeling, improvement of our Website, and marketing purposes.
We do not sell or lease your personal information to any third party. We may share your information with our corporate affiliates and service providers for the purposes described above. We may also share your information with others:
We do not share your personal information with third parties for the third parties own direct marketing purposes.
Our website may also include features (e.g. plugins) that allow you to interact directly with external social media platforms. We may disclose your information to the operator of any social media provider with which you interact.
We strive to maintain and process your information accurately. We have processes in place to maintain all of our information in accordance with relevant data governance frameworks and legal requirements. We employ technologies designed to help us maintain information accuracy on input and processing.
To view and change the information that you have provided to us, you can log in to your account and follow the instructions on that webpage, or contact us directly for assistance.
Shine the Light law. Pursuant to California Civil Code Section 1798.83, we will not disclose or share your personal information with third parties for the purposes of third-party marketing to you without your prior consent.
Do Not Track Signals. Other than as disclosed in this Privacy Statement, our Website does not respond to Do Not Track (“DNT”) beacons sent by browser plugins as there is not yet a common agreement about how to interpret DNT signals from browsers. The Website does not track users over time and across third-party websites to provide targeted advertising. Therefore, the Website does not operate any differently when it receives DNT signals from your internet web browser.
WE DO NOT SELL YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION. If we ever decide to sell personal information, we will update you via this Privacy Statement and include a link entitled “Do Not Sell My Personal Information,” to provide you with an opportunity to opt out of sales of your personal information.
California Consumer Rights. If you are a California consumer, as defined by the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018, you may be afforded additional rights with respect to your “Personal Information” as that term is explicitly defined under California law. Any Personal Information we collect is collected for the commercial purpose of effectively providing our services to you, as well as enabling you to learn more about, and benefit from, our services. You may exercise each of your rights as identified below, subject to our verification of your identity.
Only you, or someone legally authorized to act on your behalf, may make a request related to your Personal Information. If an authorized agent makes a request on your behalf, we may require proof that you gave the agent permission to submit the request.
Responding to Your Request. Upon receiving your request, we will confirm receipt of your request by sending you an email confirming receipt. To help protect your privacy and maintain security, we may take steps to verify your identity before granting you access to the Personal Information. In some instances, such as a request to delete personal information, we may first separately confirm that you would like for us to in fact delete your Personal Information before acting on your request.
We will respond to your request within forty-five (45) days. If we require more time, we will inform you of the reason and extension period in writing.
In some cases our ability to uphold these rights for you may depend upon our obligations to process Personal Information for security, safety, fraud prevention reasons, compliance with regulatory or legal requirements, listed below, or because processing is necessary to deliver the services you have requested. Where this is the case, we will inform you of specific details in response to your request. We may deny your deletion request if retaining the information is necessary for us or our service providers to:
Our Website is designed for use by individuals in the United States only. We do not warrant or represent that this Privacy Statement or the Website’s use of your information complies with the laws of any other jurisdiction.

Regardless of the country in which such information is stored, we will process your information in accordance with this Privacy Statement.
We take reasonable steps to protect your information from unauthorized use, disclosure, alteration and destruction, although no method of transmission over the Internet is entirely secure and we cannot guarantee that your information will not be accessed by others.

We do not knowingly collect or request information from any person under the age of thirteen (13).

Transactional or service-oriented messages, such as delivery confirmation messages, are usually excluded from such preferences, as such messages are required to respond to your requests or to provide goods and services, and are not intended for the purposes of marketing.
