The Internet has become a major portal for Lexmark and its customers to interact. Customers and prospective customers use Lexmark’s Web site for a multitude of reasons.
During these transactions, Lexmark may ask customers for the following personal information:
Lexmark takes the privacy of personal information provided by our customers very seriously. We are happy to report that we have had no customer complaints regarding breach of personal information collected via Internet marketing and sales activities.
Prior to October 2009, Lexmark outsourced the Web store to a third-party channel partner, which administered the store and collected the personal information necessary to complete sales transactions. We have not received any customer complaints for breach of personal information by the third party.
To protect against unauthorized access, misuse, disclosure or alteration of personal information, Lexmark employs appropriate physical, technical and administrative security measures. Physical security is designed to prevent unauthorized access to database equipment and hard copies of documents. Electronic security measures, such as firewalls, access restrictions and encryption, provide protection from hacking or other unauthorized access. Lexmark limits access to personal information to those persons in our organization, or agents of Lexmark, who have a specific business purpose for maintaining and processing personal information and data. Lexmark regularly reviews privacy compliance.
Lexmark offers recourse to customers who feel there has been a breach of their personal data. A designated email and designated postal address are available.
