Information Obtained by NexGen and its Use
NexGen receives, uses and may store personal information about you. Personal information generally means and includes any information relating to an identified or identifiable individual (and includes “Personal Information” within the meaning of the California Consumer Privacy Act). Much of the information you provide NexGen is obtained when you request NexGen literature, product information or product support, fill out a questionnaire or customer survey, participate in on-line discussions, interact through NexGen social media platforms or otherwise seek information about NexGen through social media and communications platforms that capture personal information. NexGen may also receive information about you through “cookies,” web beacons and other technologies used on NexGen websites and mobile applications. In addition, personal information may come from third party sources and when otherwise permitted by applicable laws, including when you have authorized someone to act on your behalf, from public databases, through third party services that you use to interact with NexGen and on occasions when your personal information is collected at an industry or other event that you attend. Types of personal information that NexGen obtains may include: your name; physical address; mobile or landline phone numbers; e-mail addresses and other contact information; login data (e.g. username, account number, password); geographic location; Linked-in profile and similar social media biographical data; the name of your employer, your title and position with your employer; your employer’s email and related contact and address information; web pages you view; links you click; your device’s IP address; performance and usage data about your use of NexGen products and services; data you provide to receive technical assistance or during customer service interactions; and market or demographic data about your employer and you. NexGen typically uses that information, which NexGen may combine with other information about you that it receives from multiple sources, to respond to your requests and provide you with materials and information about NexGen, to notify you of products being shipped to you, to customize your interactions with NexGen, to improve NexGen’s product offerings, to allow you to participate in contests, to undertake and manage marketing and related programs related to NexGen product offerings, and generally to communicate with you about NexGen business. It is your choice whether or not to provide NexGen with any information. If you decide not to provide NexGen with information, you may not receive all the materials and information that you were seeking and you may not be able to take advantage of offers and other features that NexGen makes generally available to its customers and potential customers.
If you submit technical information to NexGen such as designs, ideas or data through any NexGen websites or mobile applications, your submission (unless otherwise expressly covered by another, independent legal agreement with NexGen) will not be considered or treated by NexGen as confidential or proprietary. When providing any submissions, you will be deemed to have granted NexGen a nonexclusive, royalty-free, perpetual, irrevocable, sublicensable right to disseminate, display, use, modify, copy, adapt, and translate any of those submissions for any purpose whatsoever, whether commercial or noncommercial, throughout the world in any media. You will also be deemed to have: (i) represented and warranted in making a submission that you own or control all rights to your submission; and (ii) agreed to indemnify NexGen for all claims resulting from or related to any of your submissions.
Managing the Information NexGen Has Obtained
You can always choose not to give NexGen information about yourself. If you want to add or update your information or preferences, you may seek to modify the information that NexGen retains about you by contacting NexGen. When you request that NexGen update your information, NexGen may keep a copy of your earlier information for its records. In some cases, even if you choose not to receive electronic communications from NexGen, other terms and conditions (including, for example, those related to website usage, to NexGen’s Standard Terms and Conditions of Sale or to the provision of NexGen Samples) may separately apply to, and govern, your receipt of communications or information from NexGen and the use and management by NexGen of information you deliver under those separate terms and conditions.
Your browser will generally allow you to specify the types of “cookies” that you permit or deny on your computer or other devices. Other software applications may also allow you to view websites anonymously, although that may affect the utility of NexGen services and features.
NexGen does not sell personal information to third parties, although personal information may be shared with NexGen agents, suppliers, vendors, sales representatives, sales distributors, resellers and other third party service providers with which NexGen conducts its business. NexGen uses other companies and service providers to provide services and perform tasks related to NexGen’s business and to enable NexGen to design, manufacture and sell its products and services around the world. These third party services and tasks may include, among many others, the manufacture, sale and distribution of NexGen products, the packaging and delivery of NexGen products and supplies, the marketing of NexGen products, the storage and testing of NexGen products and supplies, the processing of payments, the support of NexGen customers, the management of financial transactions, the implementation of import and export control programs and the delivery of various commercial services in support of NexGen’s business. While NexGen may share information with other companies and service providers to enable them to perform their jobs, they may not use that information for purposes unrelated to their NexGen tasks unless you have otherwise given them separate permission to do so. NexGen may also use information to enhance and improve the development, delivery and use of NexGen products and services. As part of those efforts, NexGen expects to share your information with NexGen affiliates and subsidiaries in non-U.S. jurisdictions, including Europe and Asia.
