Toshiba advocates online privacy. This policy will explain the following:
What information do we collect online and how do we use it?
Your privacy is important to us. We protect your online information in the same way we protect our customer information obtained through printed orders, feedback, and correspondence. Toshiba collects information for mailing of information only when you request for it. The more additional information you volunteer (and the more accurate it is), the better we are able to customize contents and make it relevant to you as an individual. Once you register, you are no longer anonymous to Toshiba and are able to take full advantage of the services we can offer you.
On some parts of the website you can order products or services, check warranty, make requests, and register to receive newsletters or marketing materials.
Information collected from these pages includes name, model number, serial number and contact information. Should you decide to purchase a product from the Toshiba website, we will need additional information from you, including billing and shipping address and credit card information. This information will be stored according to local legal standards for e-business transactions.
In addition, we make and keep copies of information you submit when you send email feedback to the site, ask a technical question, or report a problem. Toshiba also occasionally asks users to complete surveys that we use for research purposes.
Toshiba's primary goal in collecting personal information is to provide you with customized and relevant information when you visit the site. We do not capture personal information from this site without your knowledge or permission. When personal information is requested, visitors are given a choice as to whether they would prefer to opt-out and not receive any mailings from Toshiba.
What security mechanisms does Toshiba use to secure data transfers?
Toshiba is committed to ensuring the security of your information. To prevent unauthorized access or disclosure, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the appropriate use of information, we have put in place appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online as reasonably as possible. We use encryption when collecting or transferring sensitive data such as credit card information. In certain areas of our Website, Toshiba uses SSL-encryption to protect data transmissions.
Who will your data be shared with?
Toshiba will not sell or rent your personally identifiable information to anyone.
Toshiba will send personally identifiable information about you to other companies or people when:
