If you are doing business with our German sister company, Missing Link Electronics GmbH, please refer to the privacy notice at https://de.missinglinkelectronics.com/index.php/menu-dsgvo.
Information That You Provide
You may visit the Site without registering or actively submitting personal data to us. If you do not register, then we receive only information that your computer or other device sends to us in connection with access requests and via cookies and other technologies that we use to analyze and enhance your use of our Site.
We may use your information to operate, evaluate and improve our business (including developing new products and services; enhancing and improving our services; managing our communications; and analyzing our products).
If you submit your resume online for a job opening, we require that you provide certain personally identifiable information, including your name, address, phone number, and employment and education history. This information is necessary to process your application and to contact you. If you are offered a job or become employed by MLE or one of its direct or indirect subsidiaries, it will also be used for other employment-related purposes. By submitting your resume and any other application materials to us, you agree that we may use such information for recruitment, hiring and employment purposes (including transferring the data to other countries, transferring your information to other companies authorized to perform specific services for MLE, and/or other processing relevant to recruitment purposes).
Resumes should include information relevant to your employment history and education. Candidates should not disclose sensitive personal characteristics (e.g., gender, height, weight, religion, philosophical or political beliefs, financial data, etc.) in their communications.
Information We Share
We disclose your personal information only as follows:
- With your consent.
- We will disclose data as required by law or to protect you, other users, us or third parties from harm, including fraud, data security breaches or where someone’s physical safety seems at risk.
- In a reorganization or sale of our company or assets, your data may be transferred, subject to the acquirer accepting the commitments made in this Statement and compliance with applicable law.
How We Protect Personal Information
Personal information collected via the Site may be stored and processed in the United States and/or any other country in which MLE or its affiliates, subsidiaries or agents maintain facilities, and by using the Site, you consent to any such storage, processing and transfer of information into and out of your country, state, and/or territory.
MLE employs procedural and technological measures reasonably designed to protect your personal information under our control from loss or unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, or destruction. MLE stores your personal information on secure computers located in a controlled access data center, to which only a small number of MLE employees involved in the management of the data center have physical access. Where reasonably practical, MLE uses encryption, firewalls, and other security technology to help prevent unauthorized access to your personal information.
We follow generally accepted standards to protect the personal information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it. No method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure, however. Therefore, we cannot guarantee its absolute security. If you have any questions about security on our Site, you can contact us at privacy@MLEcorp.com .
As is true of most websites, we gather certain information automatically and store it in log files. This information includes internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, operating system, and date/time stamp. We may use technologies such as cookies, beacons, tags, and scripts, to analyze trends, administer the Site, track users’ movements around the Site, and to gather demographic information about our user base as a whole.
We may not recognize or take action in response to Do-Not-Track (DNT) signals from Web browsers. At this time there is not any universally accepted standard for a company’s adoption for how to respond when a DNT signal is detected. In the event a final standard is established, we will determine how to appropriately respond to these signals.
Links to Other Websites
We will retain your information for as long as needed to provide you services. We will retain and use your information as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements.
EU-US Privacy Shield Program
MLE recognizes that the European Community has established a data protection regime pursuant to the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) which replaces the Data Protection Directive 95/46/EC and was designed to harmonize data privacy laws across Europe, to protect and empower all EU citizens data privacy and to reshape the way organizations across the region approach data privacy. GDPR applies to the European Economic Area (“EEA”) and restricts companies in the EEA in transferring personal data about individuals in the EEA to the United States, unless there is “adequate protection” for such personal data when it is received in the United States. To create such “adequate protection” and to overcome the restriction on international data transfers established by the Directive, MLE adheres to the Safe Harbor Privacy Principles published by US Department of Commerce (“Safe Harbor Principles”) under the U.S.-EU Safe Harbor program with respect to personal data about individuals in the EEA that subsidiaries, customers, suppliers and other businesses in the EEA send to MLE.
MLE primarily provides software and related electronic design services largely to businesses and rarely to individual consumers. Thus, MLE receives mostly business-related information from the EEA. Occasionally, MLE also receives contact information related to individual representatives of businesses with whom MLE is dealing (including, without limitation, names, addresses, work phone numbers, work email addresses, etc.), and, in connection with our services, MLE processes data that may be relating to EEA residents on behalf of, and in accordance with instructions from, customers. Since said EEA Data is by definition sent to MLE by another company in the EEA (e.g., a supplier to MLE), the categories of data sent and the purposes of processing often depend on such other company, with whom the EEA Persons typically have a closer employment, business or other relationship (and which therefore, can provide additional information on categories of data shared with us).
MLE collects and uses EEA Data for purposes of providing products and services to its customers, communicating with corporate business partners about business matters, processing EEA Data on behalf of corporate customers, transmitting marketing emails and performing other marketing activities, and conducting related tasks for legitimate business purposes.
We may update this Privacy Statement periodically and without prior notice to you to reflect changes in our personal information practices.
