Privacy Policy

Please note that our Sites are under constant development. New services are added frequently and this agreement may therefore be modified and updated on an ongoing basis. It is important to check back to this page regularly.

Protecting your privacy is important to us. We hope the following statement will help you understand how TechWell Corporation (“TECHWELL”) collects, uses, and safeguards the personal information you provide to us on our websites.

Public Postings (Comments)
The TechWell site (www.techwell.com) and its sub-domains or such other URLs or domains as TECHWELL determines from time to time (collectively, the “Site”) may record any information or material you disclose or submit to the Site that becomes publicly accessible. Although you may include copyright and other protection statements with the material you submit, TechWell does not agree to protect the information you post.

Postings represent an important resource for members of the TechWell community. You understand that your submissions will appear in searchable archives and may appear in other reference material for which there may or may not be a charge associated.

Review the Terms of Use statement for complete information about submissions and posting to TechWell. If you do not agree with these terms, DO NOT SUBMIT OR POST to this site.

Newsletter Subscription(s)
The email address provided through our newsletter subscription form or through TECHWELL’s other newsletter subscription services enables us to send you email newsletters(s). Subscribers can opt-out of our newsletter at any time by clicking the "Unsubscribe" link that is present on every email at the very bottom of the newsletter.

Site Feedback and Other Contacts
The email address that you use when contacting with story ideas, editorial tips, or via our Feedback Form will not be used for any reason except for the purposes of responding to your inquiry.

Cookie Disclosure
A cookie is a small string of text that a website can send to your browser for temporary information storage or to your hard drive for storage until the cookie expires. Generally, cookies are used to distinguish a user’s browser and remember preferences and navigation set/used during a visit to a site (e.g., personalization, shopping carts, etc.).

Like many commercial websites, TechWell uses “cookies” for a variety of tasks for every user. Specifically, TechWell uses temporary “session” cookies to assist in maintaining navigation states, to store aggregate information about how the site is used, and to present personalized information to enhance the experience of our users. Session cookies last until the user’s browser is closed.

Third-party Links
TechWell contains links to other Internet sites. We encourage all of our partners, contributors, and third parties to implement policies and practices that respect the privacy of our users. However, TechWell is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of any linked websites. Some of our advertisers use third-party companies to serve their advertisements on our sites and, in some cases, in our HTML-formatted newsletters. Often, these third-party advertising companies employ cookie and other technologies to measure advertisement effectiveness. We do not give any personally identifiable information to them as part of this practice.

We review our privacy practices from time to time and ask that our visitors periodically review this page to ensure familiarity with the most current version of our privacy statement.

Customer Information
The TechWell privacy policy protects you from the misappropriation of the personal information you share with us. This policy has been formulated so you understand what we will, and will not, do with your personal information including email address and any other information you provide.

Anyone may browse the TechWell site anonymously.

Personally identifiable information, such as your email address, provided to us will not be shared with anyone without your permission. From time to time, we may survey you about your opinions, needs, and profile information (about you and/or your organization). We use this data to improve the site and tailor your experience on TechWell. But again, this information is not shared with sponsors or others without your permission. TECHWELL occasionally shares aggregated information with third parties, but no personally identifiable information is shared in this manner.

Other than in the case of a change of control, TECHWELL does not sell, trade, or rent any personal information that identifies particular individuals to any third parties without your permission. TECHWELL does, however, use this information for its own marketing purposes, and to send you information about topics and products from TECHWELL and third-party vendors that we think will be of interest to you.

Information and Transaction Security
TechWell has certain security measures in place to protect the loss, misuse, and alteration of information. Although no security measure is foolproof, we believe we’ve implemented a system that is safe to a reasonable certainty. Any potentially sensitive data, such as credit card information, is encrypted prior to transmission. Financial information that we collect is used to bill you for the products and services you order.

Commenting, Social Media Sharing, and Email to a Friend
TechWell may use third-party services for commenting, posting, sharing with various social media services and email to a friend features. We do not control how these services use the information you provide to them and encourage you to review their privacy policies and terms of use.

Legal Agreement
This privacy policy forms a legal agreement between you and TECHWELL. Your use of the site implies your agreement to the Terms of Use for this site.
