In addition, in order to perform certain functions on this web site, such as access certain documents, download software, or request technical support, you must first complete the registration form and select a user name (your email address) and a password. During registration you are also required to provide contact information (such as name and business telephone number). If you choose not to provide the requested information, then you will not be able to perform these various functions. Equally, you should not provide this information if you disagree with the terms of this Privacy Policy.

We may also collect information directly from you when you provide your information to us at trade shows, call us on the phone, send us an email, communicate with us via third-party social media sites, request customer support, apply for a job with us, or otherwise communicate with us.

II. Use of Information

When you register, you can opt-in to receive email communications from Lattice. If you opt-in, we will send you information on new product launches, updated software, live seminars in your locality and other general information relating to the Lattice's business. You may also select individual areas of interest relating to Lattice’s business about which you would like to remain informed (via "web content updates" that let you know when the web site has been updated). If you sign up for "web content updates," you will be notified of new content added to the site in the sections you select as being of interest to you.

Out of respect for your privacy, we do not send such communications unless you affirmatively express your interest in them, and we allow you to adjust your preference or terminate delivery of such messages any time by replying to the message or clicking the "manage my email preferences" or "unsubscribe" links at the bottom of every email.

We use the information we collect from and about you for the following additional purposes:

  • Respond to your request for information regarding and communicate with you about Lattice and our products;
  • Process your transactions;
  • Send you technical notices and support and administrative messages;
  • Detect and prevent fraudulent transactions and other illegal activities, comply with our legal obligations and protect the rights and property of Lattice and others; and,
  • For any other purpose specifically described to you at the time we collect information.

III. Sharing and disclosure of personally identifiable information

We may share your personal data with certain third parties as described below in this section or with your consent and at your direction. We obligate these third parties by contract to keep your personal data confidential and not to use it for any purpose other than to carry out services for Lattice.

A. Subsidiaries and sales channel partners

Personal information and information on the documents you download is collected for joint use by Lattice and the network of subsidiaries, representatives, distributors, and other sales partners that represent us. Members of this team may contact you directly if they believe they may be able to assist you in your work.

Your personal data may be shared with third parties in order to deliver certain additional services. We may share your personal data with certain third party service providers who assist us in providing products and services, including assisting us with marketing and communication initiatives and support services.

C. Joint events and programming

Occasionally we work with third parties to deliver a joint seminar series, for example.

D. Required disclosures

We reserve the right to disclose your personally identifiable information in accordance with or as required by law or when we believe that disclosure is necessary to protect our legal rights or to comply with a judicial proceeding, court order, or legal process.

E. Business transitions

In the event that all or part of the business of Lattice is acquired by another company through a merger, or sale of all or a portion of its assets or otherwise, your personally identifiable information would be transferred as part of the transaction.

IV. Changes to your information

If you no longer wish to receive email communications from Lattice, you may opt-out of receiving them by following the instructions included in each newsletter or communication or by emailing us at webmaster@latticesemi.com. If your personally identifiable information changes, or if you wish to modify your communication preferences, or if you no longer desire our services, you may correct or update your account by making the appropriate change on the "my account" section of this site.

V. International

The information we collect about you may be transferred to, and accessed from within, jurisdictions in which Lattice does business which may not offer the same level of data protection as your home jurisdiction. We will take steps to maintain an adequate level of protection for this information in the jurisdictions in which we process it. If you are a resident of the European Economic Area ("EEA"), this information is transferred pursuant to Standard Contractual Clauses. Please see the "Note to EEA Residents" section below for more details.

VI. Advertising and Analytic Services Provided by Others

A. Web beacons

Certain of our tools may employ a software technology called "web beacons" or "clear gifs" that enable them to provide us with statistics. Web beacons are tiny graphics with unique identifiers which are embedded invisibly on web pages. The use of these devices is subject to the privacy policy of the relevant partner site.

Web beacons may also be used to tell us which parts of our web site customers have visited and whether emails we have sent you have been opened or forwarded. For more information about web beacons and other advertising and analytic services, please visit our Cookie Policy.

B. Links to other sites

This web site contains links to other sites that are not owned or controlled by Lattice. Lattice is not responsible for the privacy practices of such other sites.

We encourage you to be aware when you leave our site and to read the privacy statements of other web sites that you visit.

This privacy statement applies only to information collected by this web site.

VII. Security

The security of your personal information is important to us. We follow generally accepted industry 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, while we strive to use reasonable means in accordance with the custom and practices of the industry to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.

If you have any questions about security on our web site, you can send email us at webmaster@latticesemi.com.
