Collection of Information
Ingram Micro does not collect any Special Categories of Personal Data about you unless required by law (this includes details about your race or ethnicity, religious or philosophical beliefs, sex life, and sexual orientation).
Ingram Micro collects your Personal Data as follows:
Information You Provide Voluntarily. We may collect Personal Data directly from you when you voluntarily provide it to us. For example, when you communicate with us over the telephone or through the Website by way of email, online chat, web form, or online account registration to obtain access to Offerings, register for an event or training, sign up for marketing, promotional, or informational emails or communications, purchase an Offering, ask questions, attempt to resolve any issues related to the Website or Offerings, submit a job application, or submit feedback and comments.
The Personal Data that you are asked to provide, and the reasons why you are asked to provide it, will be made clear to you at the point we ask you to provide your Personal Data.
Information that We Collect Automatically. When you visit our Website, we may collect certain information automatically from your Device. In some countries, including countries in the European Economic Area, this information may be considered Personal Data under applicable data protection laws.
Specifically, the information we collect automatically may include information like your IP address, device type, unique device identification numbers, browser-type, your Media Access Control (MAC) Address, broad geographic location (e.g. country or city-level location) and other technical information. We may also collect information about how your device has interacted with our Website, including the pages accessed and links clicked.
Collecting this information enables us to better understand the visitors who come to our Website, where they come from, and what content on our Website is of interest to them. We use this information for our internal analytics purposes and to improve the quality and relevance of our Website to our visitors.
Some of this information may be collected using cookies and similar tracking technology, as explained further under the heading “Cookies and Other Website Usage Information” below.
From Other Users. We may receive Personal Data about you from other users of the Website when they provide information to us. For example, we may receive information when they communicate with you or with us through the Website.
From Resellers and Distributors. We may obtain Personal Data about you from the resellers and distributors that purchase Offerings available from us and provide such Offerings to you.
From Our Vendors. We may obtain Personal Data about you from the third-party vendors that make Offerings available through us.
From Customers. We may obtain Personal Data about you from third-party customers that contract with us for services. For example, we may provide fulfilment services on behalf of other companies where we will pick, pack, and ship a physical product to you. In this scenario we will receive your name, mailing address, and order information, and will only process your Personal Data to facilitate the services on behalf of the customer.
From Third-Party Providers. Ingram Micro may also obtain Personal Data from third parties that have obtained or collected information about you and that have the right to provide that Personal Data to us. Ingram Micro will only obtain this Personal Data where we have checked that these third parties either have your consent or are otherwise legally permitted or required to disclose your Personal Data to us. For example, if you register for the Website using a third-party service or through a third-party website or service, the information you provide to that third-party will be provided to us to establish your account on the Website. We may also contract with third parties that are in the business of providing information to businesses such as ours to verify certain information about you or obtain information. We may use the Personal Data about you we receive from a third-party outside of the Website in accordance with the terms we establish with that third-party and within the limits of the law. We may also obtain Personal Data at trade shows or events where you have attended and provided your consent to collect your Personal Data. We may also obtain Personal Data from publicly-available sources such as open government databases or other data in the public domain.
