1. What information do we collect from you?
Vicor collects personal information such as your contact information (name, email address),
billing/shipping information (credit card number, shipping address), or your personal preferences
(product interests relating to the products we may sell). When submitting personal information on an
online form, we will identify which fields are required in order to fulfill your request.
While taking advantage of services available while visiting our websites, we may ask that you provide
certain information about yourself. For example, we request personal information when you set up an
account online and purchase products or services.

1.1 Anonymous Data Collected via Technology
A cookie is a small data file that a website may send to your browser and which may then be stored
on your hard drive. Our websites use cookies to simulate a continuous connection —we may use the
information to  recognize your computer when you visit our website, "remember" information about your
preferences and session and allow you to move within areas of our websites without reintroducing yourself.
Our Web server automatically collects the address of the website that you came from before visiting
our site, which browser you used to view our site, and any search terms you have entered on our site.
Our website may also use other technologies to track which pages on our websites our visitors view.
This non-personal information helps us understand how visitors use our website.

Most browsers allow you to refuse to accept cookies. (For example, in Internet Explorer you can refuse all
cookies by clicking “Tools”, “Internet Options”, “Privacy”, and selecting “Block all cookies” using the sliding selector.)
This will, however, have a negative impact upon the usability of many websites, including this one.

We may create Anonymous Data records from the information that you provide by excluding
information (such as your name) that makes the data personally identifiable to you. We use this
Anonymous Data to perform statistical analyses of users' aggregate behavior so that we may
enhance the content of our services and improve site navigation.

2. How will we use the personal data we collect?
 

Personal data submitted on this website will be used for the purposes specified in this privacy policy or in relevant parts of the website.

In addition to the uses identified elsewhere in this privacy policy, we may use your personal information to:

1) fulfill requests for products, services or information,

2) measure and improve the effectiveness of our websites, our marketing endeavors or our services
and offers

3) improve your browsing experience by personalizing the website

4) tailor our online store to your preferences,

4) administer surveys,

5) send marketing communications related to our business

6) other business purposes, such as send information (other than marketing communications) to you which we think may
be of interest to you by post or by email or similar technology;



3. Do we share your personal information with other companies?
Vicor has appointed a number of distributors around the globe who may contact you at our request to
provide you with the information and guidance that you need. You may also contact our authorized
distributors separately. We, and our authorized distributors, may share your data in order to provide
you with the most up-to-date options and information and either party may contact you, with the full
knowledge of the other party, with updates and other valuable information.

Vicor may need to share personal information with third parties in limited circumstances. For example,
we may release personal information to third parties to perform services on our behalf such as;
fulfilling our customer’s orders, sending marketing communications from Vicor, delivering packages,
conducting research or surveys, sending regular mail and e-mail on behalf of Vicor, or processing
credit card payments. Vicor does not disclose customer information to third parties without
your permission.

These third parties are required under contract not to use your personal information other than to
provide the services requested by Vicor and to guarantee to our satisfaction that they have sufficient
processes in place to ensure the security of your data while it is in their care. You expressly consent to the sharing of
your personal information with our contractors and third party service providers for the purpose of providing services to you.

From time to time, we may be required to provide personal information in response to a valid court
order, subpoena, government investigation, or as otherwise required by law. We also reserve the right
to report to law enforcement agencies any activities that we, in good faith, believe to be unlawful. We
may release certain personal information when we believe that such release is reasonably necessary
to protect the rights, property, and safety of others and ourselves. We may also release personal
information in the event of a corporate sale, merger, reorganization, dissolution or similar event.
The Vicor Companies are affiliated entities and wholly-owned subsidiaries of Vicor Corporation. As
such, any information you may provide to us either online or offline may be combined or shared
between current or future Vicor entities and subsidiaries.

5. Other websites
This Privacy Policy does not apply to other websites that may be accessible through the Vicor sites.
Our sites contain links to other sites operated by third parties. We encourage you to read the privacy
policies of those other sites to learn how they collect and use information about you.

6. Where your information is processed, and how we keep your personal information secure.
Your personal information may be processed both in and outside of your own country. When you
submit your details, and in whichever country you are situated, you agree to the data being
transferred to the USA where the information is hosted on Vicor’s secure servers. If you are in the
European Economic Area your data will be processed under the terms of the European Directives
95/46/EC and 2002/58/EC respectively and protected under International Chamber of Commerce
Data Transfer Agreements.

If you are not in agreement, please do not add your personal details on any of our sites.
Vicor is committed to protecting the security of your personal information. We use a variety of
industry-standard security technologies and procedures to help protect your personal information from
unauthorized access, use, or disclosure.

The Vicor Website uses encryption technology, such as Secure Sockets Layer (SSL), to protect your
credit card information during data transport. SSL encrypts ordering information such as your name,
address, and credit card number. Our Customer Service group operates over a private, secure
network.

We store personal information behind a computer firewall, a barrier designed to prevent outsiders
from accessing our servers. We may also require you to enter a password to access your account
information. In addition, Vicor protects your personal information from unauthorized physical access
by storing your personal information in a controlled facility. Except as provided elsewhere in this
Privacy Policy, Vicor limits access to personal information in electronic databases to those persons
(including employees and contractors) in Vicor's organization who have a business need for such
access and those persons are under contract to keep your data secure.

Although we cannot guarantee against any loss, misuse, unauthorized disclosure, alteration or
destruction of data, we take reasonable precautions to prevent such unfortunate occurrences. Vicor
cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us by email and you do so at
your own risk.

7. Safe Shopping Policy
When you create an online account on the Vicor Website, you need to select a personal password
that you will remember. It must be at least 6 characters. To maximize your level of protection, you
should choose a combination of both letters and numbers. You are solely responsible for maintaining
the secrecy of your passwords or any account information.

Whether you purchase our products through our online Vicor Store or by contacting Customer
Service, we have security measures in place to protect against the loss, misuse, unauthorized access
and alteration of the information under our control.

We do not store your credit card number in our systems – we merely pass it along using secure
communications to our payment processor. Both Vicor and our payment processor are compliant with
the Payment Card Industry (PCI) Data Security Standard.

8. Access to your personal information
If you live in the European Economic Area, you are entitled to see the information held about you and
you may ask us to make any necessary changes to ensure that it is accurate and kept up to date. If
you wish to see the information we hold about you, please contact us your local office in writing with
your request. Click here for contact details.

We are entitled by law to charge a fee to meet our costs in providing you with details of the
information we hold about you. We are also legally obliged to request that you to provide us with
identification so that we can be certain that you are entitled to receive the requested data.

9. Changes to this Privacy Policy
Because our websites and businesses will continue to implement new technologies and improve the
services and features we provide, this policy is subject to change. If there are changes or additions to
this Privacy Policy, we will post those changes here or in other formats we deem acceptable, so that
you will always know what information we collect online or offline, how we use it and what choices you
have. If we change our information practices or this Privacy Policy in such a way that your personal
information may be used or shared in a different manner, we will give you the opportunity to opt-out of
having your information used or shared in that new manner.


This Privacy Policy was last revised in September  2013.
