Tensilica's Privacy Policy

Last Updated June 2012

The following statement applies to data collected by Tensilica through its website and with respect to products available for download, as well as its related product support services.

Personal Information Collected by Tensilica

In order to access some Tensilica products or documents, you will be asked to provide personal information, such as your e-mail address, name, home or work address or telephone number. We may also collect demographic information, such as your ZIP code, age, gender, preferences, interests and favorites. If you choose to make a purchase or sign up for a paid subscription service, we will ask for additional information, such as your credit card number and billing address, which is used to create a Tensilica billing account.

Tensilica uses the personal information collected to operate and improve its sites and deliver the products or carry out the transactions you have requested. We also use your personal information to communicate with you. For example, we may send certain information or reminders related to Tensilica products you have downloaded. When you use the Tensilica website, Tensilica may also collect certain information about your computer to track and evaluate your use of the website and products. For example, we may log environmental variables, such as browser type, operating system, and the Internet Protocol (IP) address of your computer. Personal information collected on Tensilica sites may be stored and processed in the United States or any other country, and by using a Tensilica site or product available online, you consent to any such transfer of information outside of your country.

Third Party Access to Your Personal Information

If you give us any personal information, we will use that only within Tensilica. We will not share it with anyone else, except in the following circumstances: (a) any necessary credit card authorization services (e.g., Verisign) if you purchase something through our web site; (b) in order to fulfill any contractual rights or obligations established by any online agreements accepted by you; (c) to protect and defend the rights or property of Tensilica (including the enforcement of our agreements); or (d) to comply with the law or legal process served on Tensilica.

Security of Your Personal Information

Tensilica is committed to protecting the security of your personal information. We use a variety of security technologies and procedures to help protect your personal information from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure.

We will occasionally update this privacy statement. When we post changes to this statement, we will revise the "last updated" date at the top of this statement. We encourage you to periodically review this statement to be informed of how Tensilica is using and protecting your information.
