You may also voluntarily complete customer surveys or participate in competitions, sweepstakes or other promotions run by MCM or other companies in the Premier Farnell brand and pass information in those contexts. The majority of this information will not be personal information but, to the extent that you do disclose any personal information during these sessions, that personal information will be managed in accordance with this privacy policy.

To the extent you are a registered user of MCM’s website, you have the option at any time to change your preferences registered in connection with any of MCM’s sites or services at any time.

How MCM stores and uses your information:

The information you provide when registering to use, and in the course of using, MCM’s website may be used by MCM:

· to provide you with the products and services you order and to manage your account;

· to contact you in connection with any query you have raised;

· to contact you to inform you about other announcements, special offers, products, services or events on offer from MCM, its affiliates, and certain third-party business partners that MCM thinks may be of interest to you.

MCM obtains appropriate confidentiality protection in those instances.

Security Statement:

Access to the personal information that you provide and MCM stores is password protected and access to passwords is limited. Firewall technology is used to prevent unauthorized access and servers are backed up daily, with archives stored in a secure location.

MCM’s website uses SSL (which stands for "Secure Sockets Layer" technology), the de facto standard for internet security. SSL is an open protocol for secure data communications across computer networks. Broad support for this protocol promotes interoperability between products from many organizations. It provides an environment in which electronic commerce can be conducted and data can be safely encrypted and protected. SSL provides a straightforward method for adding strong security to existing applications and network infrastructures. SSL is application protocol independent and provides encryption, which creates a secure channel to prevent others from tapping into the network; authentication, which uses certificates and digital signatures to verify the identity of parties in information exchanges and transactions; and message integrity, which ensures that messages cannot be altered en route. MCM’s website is authenticated for e-commerce by VeriSign, the world's leading website authentication authority.
