Information Collected By Finisar

We may collect information that you provide to us in connection with your use of the Sites when you (A) submit information to us via the Sites; (B) send email messages, forms, or other information to us through the Sites; or (C) interact with the Sites. When you provide information to Finisar related to your interest in purchasing Finisar products, we may collect your name, email address, company or organization name, address, phone number, country of residence, and other data you choose to provide to us. In response to your sales inquiries, you agree that we may forward the information you provide to our applicable sales representatives.

Finisar, along with our third party service partners, vendors, and business partners may automatically collect information about you when you use the Sites. The information automatically collected about you may include, but is not limited to, device ID, device characteristics, device type, device sensor data, browser type and version, geo-location information, computer and connection information, statistics on page views, traffic to and from the Sites, ad data, Wi-Fi connection information, IP address, and standard web log information. You authorize Finisar to use this information as described in this Privacy Policy.

Cookies and Web Beacons; Do Not Track

Finisar, along with our third-party service partners, vendors, and business partners may use cookies, locally stored objects, and web beacons to automatically collect information about your use of the Sites. Cookies are small bits of information that are transferred to and stored in separate files within your computer’s browser. The Sites use both “persistent cookies”, which remain on your computer after you have closed your browser, as well as “session cookies”, which exist only during a visitor’s online session and disappear from your computer when you close your browser. Locally stored objects, or “flash cookies”, are data files that can be created on your computer by the websites you visit, and are a way for websites to store information for later use. Locally stored objects are different than cookies because they are stored in different parts of your computer than cookies. Web beacons are small strings of code that provide a method for delivering a graphic image on a web page or in an email message for the purpose of transferring data. You can set your browser to reject or disable cookies, or to notify you when you are sent a cookie. However, if you reject or disable cookies, you may not be able to use all portions or all functionality of the Sites.

The Sites may include links to other websites and other content from third-party businesses. We do not allow third parties to collect your personally identifiable information, or track your actions through cookies and web beacons over time and across different websites or platforms.
In addition, you may be able to adjust your browser settings or other settings so that “do not track” requests are sent to the websites that you use. However, Finisar will not disable tracking technology that may be active on the Sites in response to any “do not track” requests that are sent to the Sites.
