III. Categories of Processed Personal Data and Purposes of Processing
Micron will Process the following categories of Personal Data: contact information (name, address, business contact information, email address, phone number), IP address, communication history, credit card information, purchase/returns history, and information about items added to online shopping carts.

Micron does not Process Personal Data revealing religious beliefs, racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, philosophical beliefs, trade union membership, or sex life.

Micron will maintain Personal Data in a manner that ensures it is accurate, complete and up-to-date.

The processed Personal Data is limited to the data that is necessary for carrying out the purpose for which such Personal Data is collected. Micron processes your Personal Data for the following purposes: email marketing and other marketing activities (when we have obtained your opt-in consent, unless an exception for existing customers or similar products or services applies), order fulfillment, website analytics, and activities related to the sale of Micron products or the purchase of third-party products (payment and logistics administration, quality assessments, promotional activities, and surveys).

The legal basis for the purposes listed above is either (i) in connection with a contract with a customer or supplier, (ii) legitimate business interests (if such interest is not overridden by the Data Subject’s fundamental rights and freedoms or interests), (iii) other applicable legal provisions, or (iv) the Data Subject’s explicit consent. The legitimate business interests are mainly order fulfillment, responding to customer inquiries, communicating with customers who have requested communication from Micron, and promoting Micron’s business. Furthermore, Personal Data of Micron’s customers (including their contact person and sales representatives) may be processed for the purposes of the legitimate interest only if such an interest is not overridden by the Data Subject’s fundamental rights and freedoms, or interests.

Micron ensures that its internal governance procedures clearly specify the reasons behind decisions to use Personal Data for alternative Processing purposes. Prior to using your Personal Data for a purpose other than the one for which it was initially collected, you will be informed about such a new purpose.

IV. Data Security
Micron has implemented appropriate technical and organizational measures to ensure a level of security appropriate to the risk, such risk analysis includes an analysis of the risk of compromising the rights of the Data Subject, costs of implementation, and the nature, scope, context and purposes for Data Processing.

V. Recipients or Categories of Recipients of Personal Data
Micron uses a need-to-know standard when granting access to Personal Data. For example, authorization to access Personal Data is often linked to a function instead of granted on a personal basis. In addition, service providers receive Personal Data according to the purposes of the services provided to Micron.

VI. International Data Transfers
International data transfers refer to transfers of Personal Data outside of the European Economic Area (“EEA”). The international footprint of Micron involves the transfer of Personal Data to and from affiliate entities and third parties, which may be located outside the EEA, including the United States of America. Micron will ensure that when Personal Data is transferred to countries that have different standards of data protection, appropriate safeguards to adequately protect the Personal Data are implemented to ensure such data transfers in compliance with applicable data protection laws. Micron has self-certified to the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield and Swiss-U.S. Privacy Shield Frameworks. Please view our Privacy Shield Policy to learn more about our compliance. Under certain circumstances, Micron has also implemented international data transfer agreements on the basis of EU Standard Contractual Clauses in order to provide appropriate and suitable safeguards for personal data being transferred to countries outside the EEA where an adequate level of protection is not already guaranteed. A copy can be obtained by contacting the applicable Data Controller (contact information provided above).

VII. Retention of Personal Data
Subject to compliance with and exercise of rights under other laws, Micron will not retain your Personal Data for longer than is allowed under the applicable data protection laws and regulations or for longer than is justified for the purpose for which it was originally collected or otherwise processed subject to applicable local retention requirements.
