This is the website (“Website”) of Mellanox Technologies, Ltd. (collectively with all subsidiaries, “Mellanox”).  Your privacy is very important to us.  The purpose of this privacy policy (“Privacy Policy”) is to inform you about our policy and our practices regarding the collection and use of information from visitors to this Website.  By accessing or using this Website, you agree to all of the terms and conditions set forth in this Privacy Policy.

Non-Personal Information

This Website automatically collects certain data that is not personally-identifiable; this may include your IP address, the URL you came from, the time and date of your visit, where you went on this Website, your browser type, your operating system, and the URL you went to when you left this Website.  This information is analyzed to help us understand our audience, business, customers, sales, traffic patterns, performance and related website information, and improve this Website, our products, and services.

Personal Information

We do not collect any personally-identifiable information about you except when you specifically provide such information on a voluntary basis.  For example, if you choose to contact us through this Website, however, we will collect your contact information. In addition, if you are a Mellanox partner or customer and have been granted access to the secure portion of our Website using your username and password, or require help desk support services, we may collect personally identifiable information such as your name, phone number, your company name, mailing address, email address, country and region in which you reside and may maintain a database of this information in order to service customer and partner requests and inquiries.  Such personal information is used to provide the information or service you request, send pertinent marketing promotions to you as well as to help us understand our audience, business, customers, sales, traffic patterns, performance and related Website information, and improve this Website, products and services.  

Since access to certain Mellanox web pages requires username and password, we recommend that you do not divulge your username and password to anyone and follow safe practices to help prevent this information from falling into unauthorized hands.

Accuracy and Access

If you are registered with Mellanox and have obtained a username and password, such information is stored in your profile.  If any of your personally-identifiable information changes or if you want to review the information Mellanox has stored in your profile, you can review and update your profile by contacting support@mellanox.com.

Business Transitions 

In the event that Mellanox goes through a business transition, such as a merger, an acquisition by another company, or a sale of all or a portion of its assets, the personal information of our visitors may be shared or transferred.  Visitors will be notified via a prominent notice on this Website for 30 days after a change of ownership or control of Mellanox of the transfer of their personal information if the intended use of their personal information will be contrary to this Privacy Policy.  However, nothing in this Privacy Policy is intended to interfere with the ability of Mellanox to transfer all or part of its business and/or assets (including the Website), for any purposes, without any limitation whatsoever.  Mellanox specifically reserves the right to transfer or share a copy of personally-identifiable information collected from its Website to the buyer of that portion of its business relating to that information.

The information that is collected by Mellanox will be used only for internal business purposes to better serve your needs.  We will not rent, sell, transfer, share or disclose personal information about you with unaffiliated third parties without your prior written consent, except to provide products or services that you have requested or under the following circumstances:

  • We may disclose your personal information in order to respond to subpoenas, court orders, or legal process, or to establish or exercise our legal rights or defend against legal claims.
  • We may share personal information if we believe it is necessary in order to investigate, prevent or take action regarding illegal activities, suspected fraud, situations involving potential threats to physical safety of any person, violations of this Privacy Policy, or as otherwise required by law.
  • We may disclose personal information to our third party service providers who agree to maintain the confidentiality of your personal information in accordance with this Privacy Policy.  Such third party service providers may use your personal information only to provide services to Mellanox and will not be given permission to use such information for other purposes.

Security

We maintain data handling and storage practices and procedures designed to ensure the integrity and confidentiality of customer information. We have security measures implemented in our physical facilities to protect against the loss, misuse or alteration of information that we have collected from you at this Website.  While we use reasonable efforts to safeguard the security of your personal information, transmissions made on or through the Internet are vulnerable to attack and cannot be guaranteed to be secure.  In addition, submissions made via email are not protected by SSL (Secured Sockets Layer) technology and are vulnerable to interception during transmission.

Nevertheless, when disclosing any personal information via the Internet, there is always the risk that your information may be intercepted without our consent and, consequently, can be collected and used by others without your consent.  In addition, third party sites that are accessed through links on our sites have separate privacy policies and security measures, and Mellanox is not responsible or liable for the practices, policies or security measures implemented on these third party sites.  You hereby acknowledge that Mellanox is not responsible for any intercepted information sent via the Internet, and you hereby release us from any and all claims arising out of or related to the use of intercepted information in any unauthorized manner.
