Lexmark is committed to appropriately protecting and managing any personal information you share with us on this site. We provide this Privacy Statement to describe our online information practices and the choices you can make about the way your information is collected and used.
Personal information collected on Lexmark sites and services may be stored and processed in the United States or any other country in which Lexmark or its affiliates, subsidiaries, or agents maintain facilities. By using a Lexmark site or service you consent to any such transfer of information outside your country. Lexmark complies with the U.S. Commerce Department's U.S.-EU Safe Harbor Framework and U.S.-Swiss Safe Harbor Framework regarding personal information from European Union member countries and Switzerland and certifies its adherence to the Safe Harbor Privacy Principles. More information about the Safe Harbor Program can be found at: http://export.gov/safeharbor.
This Privacy Statement applies to the Lexmark.com website in the United States. The privacy statements of Lexmark websites directed at non-U.S. residents may differ from this statement to reflect local site features and applicable law.
This Privacy Statement applies to all personal information collected by or submitted to Lexmark (or carefully selected third parties acting on Lexmark's behalf). "Personal information" is data that reasonably can be used to identify or describe an individual. You do not need to provide us personal information simply to browse our site.
Lexmark collects personal information when:
The types of personal information collected may include (but are not limited to):
Lexmark collects and uses your personal information to operate and improve its sites, to fulfill your requests for information, to register your products, to process your job application, to provide you promotional materials, to allow you to participate in contests and surveys, to provide service and support, and to carry out the transactions you have requested. These uses may include providing you with more effective customer service; making the sites or services easier to use by eliminating the need for you repeatedly to enter the same information; performing research and analysis aimed at improving our products, services and solutions; and displaying content and advertising that are customized to your interests and preferences.
We also use your personal information to communicate with you. We may send certain mandatory service communications such as welcome letters, billing reminders, information on technical service issues, and support announcements. Some Lexmark services may send periodic member letters that are considered part of the service. We may also contact you to inform you of products or services available from Lexmark and its affiliates.
Personal information collected online may be combined with information you provide Lexmark in other ways, such as through product registrations, service calls, Lexmark Connect, or trade shows.
Lexmark keeps your personal information confidential. We will not sell, rent or lease your personal information to others. Unless we have your permission, we will not use or share your personal information in ways unrelated to the ones described at the time you provide the data. Lexmark engages service providers and suppliers ("agents") to perform certain functions on Lexmark's behalf. For example, these agents may deliver products to you, provide product service and support, maintain Lexmark information technology systems, and assist Lexmark with marketing and communication initiatives. Those agents will be permitted to obtain only the personal information they need to perform the services. They are required to maintain the confidentiality of the information received on Lexmark's behalf and are prohibited from using it for any other purpose.
Some Lexmark products may be co-branded and offered in conjunction with another company. If you register products, both Lexmark and the other company may receive the information you provide.
We may access and/or disclose your personal information if we believe such action is necessary to: (a) comply with the law or legal process served on Lexmark; (b) comply with requests for information from police or government authorities, (c) protect and defend the rights or property of Lexmark (including the enforcement of our agreements); or (d) act in urgent circumstances to protect the personal safety of Lexmark employees or members of the public.
Lexmark or its affiliates could merge with or be acquired by another business or their respective assets may be acquired. Lexmark will seek appropriate protection for personal information in these types of transactions.
Lexmark offers you the opportunity to choose whether your personal information is (a) to be disclosed to a non-agent third party or (b) to be used for a purpose other than the purpose for which it was originally collected or subsequently authorized by you. Lexmark will provide you reasonable mechanisms to exercise your choices at the data collection point or by using other methods.
These choices are not applicable to communications from Lexmark primarily for the purpose of administering orders, contracts, support, product safety and security warnings, software updates, or other administrative and transactional notices.
Lexmark strives to keep your personal information accurately recorded. We have implemented technology, management processes, and policies to help maintain data accuracy. Lexmark provides individuals with reasonable access to review and correct their personal information. Contact us by sending an email request to email@example.com. We will make reasonable efforts to make necessary corrections. To protect your privacy and security, we will also take reasonable steps to verify your identity before granting access to or making alterations to data we maintain.
To protect against unauthorized access, misuse, disclosure, or alteration of your personal information, Lexmark employs appropriate physical, technical, and administrative 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 Lexmark's organization, or as agents of Lexmark, who have a specific business purpose for maintaining and processing personal information and data.
Lexmark will regularly review its compliance with this Privacy Statement. Please feel free to direct any questions or concerns regarding this statement or Lexmark's treatment of personal information by contacting us at the link or address indicated below. When we receive written questions and concerns at this address, it is Lexmark's policy to contact the individual user regarding his or her concerns. We will investigate and attempt to resolve concerns regarding use and disclosure of personal information in accordance with the principles contained in this statement.
Any concern that cannot be resolved through our internal processes will be settled by arbitration administered by the American Arbitration Association (AAA) in accordance with its applicable commercial rules and, as applicable, the Safe Harbor Principles. The exclusive location for such arbitration shall be Lexington, Kentucky. All decisions of the arbitrator(s) will be final and binding on the parties, which waive any right to further appeal the arbitration award, to the extent an appeal may be lawfully waived.
