Radionics Ltd. is committed to safeguarding your privacy online. Please read the following policy to understand how your personal information will be treated when you use or register at RS On-line.
RS On-line collects information in several ways. Some personal information is gathered when you register. During registration, you are asked for a Username, Password, Security Password, your name, telephone number, fax number, e-mail address, company name, address, company's area of business, job technology, job function, purchasing influence, number of employees in your company, your primary product interest and how you heard about the site. We use this information to customise your home page and make it relevant to you as an individual. We may also record some details of how you use the site, such as adverts you click on or products you search for, to help us be more relevant in bringing promotions and new products to your attention (see How does RS On-line use my information?).
Once you register you are no longer anonymous to RS On-line and are able to take full advantage of the RS On-line offer. In addition, we may keep copies of information you submit when you send e-mail feedback to the site, ask a technical question, or report a problem. If you contact RS On-line in writing we may keep a record of that correspondence. RS On-line also occasionally asks users to complete surveys that we use for research purposes.
Radionics Ltd.always aims to deliver the highest level of service and security to our customers and RS On-line has been specifically designed with security in mind.
In order to ensure the security and protection of your personal details whenever you submit any sensitive information such as credit card number and account details, we use the following security methods:
128 bit Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) encryption - the latest technology to encode and protect your data - which is your guarantee for a safe and secure transaction.
The RS VeriSign Security Guarantee pops up whenever you submit sensitive information as an indication that the current information will be encrypted. This means that your information is protected and safe to submit.
Sensitive credit card information stored on our in-house systems is also held in encrypted format.
If you use the Data Library on the site to locate and download data sheets, your browser may alert you to the fact that a cookie is being sent to your PC. Unlike most cookies this will not be stored on your hard drive. The purpose of the cookie is merely to identify you to the data sheet server for the time you are using it. Once you have finished using the library, the cookie will be deleted.
RS ON-line uses your information for the purposes of order fulfilment and occasional direct marketing activities (see What are my choices regarding collection, use and distribution of my information?). RS On-line also collects your personal information to provide you with customised and relevant information on your home page when you visit the site. RS On-line also does research on our users' demographics, interests, and behaviour based on the information provided to us through registration, during a promotion, from our server log files or from surveys. We do this to better understand and serve our users. This research is compiled and analysed on an aggregated and anonymous basis.
The personal information you provide to this site is collected by RS Ltd.
Please be aware that RS On-line has links to other sites which may collect personally identifiable information about you. The information practices of those web sites linked to RS On-line are not covered by this privacy statement.
Radionics Ltd.is a member of a world-wide group of companies of which Electrocomponents plc is the parent company. Radionics Ltd. may share information collected about you via the RS On-line web site with other members of this group. The members of this group never sell, rent, or give away information that personally identifies customers to third parties except where elements of the business have been outsourced and the provision of such information is required for the provision of the service to you. Under such circumstances, the security and confidentiality of personal information would form a part of the legal agreement between us and the supplier. From time to time, we may release aggregated and anonymised marketing statistics to business partners, or may use these in press releases, advertising, or published reports. We would only personally identify you or any other customer in such press releases, advertising, or reports with your prior consent. Radionics Ltd. may also disclose user information in special cases when we have reason to believe that disclosing this information is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against someone who may be causing injury to or interference with (either intentionally or unintentionally) RS rights or property, other RS On-line users, or anyone else that could be harmed by such activities. In addition, Radionics Ltd. may disclose user information when the law requires it.
RS On-line may, from time to time, send you e-mail regarding our products or services. In addition, we may occasionally send you direct mail about products and services that we feel may be of interest to you. Only RS or its agents will send you these direct mailings. If you do not want to receive -email messages from us, simply omit your e-mail address when you give us your personal information. Or, at any time you can easily edit your RS On-line Personal Profile to no longer receive such mailings. If you do not wish to receive other forms of direct mail promotions from us, then please contact us at (01) 415 3144.
You may edit your Personal Profile information at any time by clicking on the Update My Details button on your home page navigation bar. If you have forgotten your password, or have any other problems accessing the site, please contact us at (01) 415 3144.
Whenever financial information is sent to or from RS On-line, we receive that information from your browser, or present it to you, via a VeriSign certified secure-server using industry-standard, SSL (secure socket layer) encryption.
Note: If you rely upon the graphical indication on your browser screen (such as the padlock icon in Internet Explorer) this may not always indicate that a secure communication is taking place. This is because RS On-line uses frames to display certain information and the security icon may not always detect that a secure connection has been established in another frame.
Your RS On-line Account Information and Personal Profile are password-protected so that you and only you can access this information. You may edit your Radioncs On-line Account Information and Personal Profile by using User name and password and clicking on the Update User profile button on your home page navigation bar.
We recommend that you do not divulge your password to anyone. RS On-line will never ask you for your password in an unsolicited phone call or in an unsolicited e-mail. Also remember to close your browser window when you have finished your work. This is to ensure that others cannot access your personal or business information if you share a computer with someone else or are using a computer in a public place.
Please keep in mind that whenever you voluntarily disclose personal information online - for example on message boards, through email, or in chat areas - that information can be collected and used by others.
