We also use your personal information to communicate with you. We may send certain mandatory service communications such as welcome letters, billing reminders, information on technical service issues, and support announcements. Some Lexmark services may send periodic member letters that are considered part of the service. We may also contact you to inform you of products or services available from Lexmark and its affiliates.
If you have not opted out of receiving promotional materials from us we may also use (but will not disclose) your Personal Data to promote and market additional products, services and special offers from us and/or Lexmark International, Inc. that may be of interest to you. You can choose not to allow us to use your Personal Data for the above-described marketing purposes by indicating your preference at the time of collection of your Personal Data or by contacting us as set out below.
Personal information collected online may be combined with information you provide Lexmark in other ways, such as through product registrations, service calls, Lexmark Connect, or trade shows.
How We Share Your Information
Lexmark keeps your personal information confidential. We will not sell, rent or lease your personal information to others. Unless we have your permission, we will not use or share your personal information in ways unrelated to the ones described at the time you provide the data. Lexmark engages service providers and suppliers (“agents”) to perform certain functions on Lexmark’s behalf. For example, these agents may deliver products to you, provide product service and support, maintain Lexmark information technology systems, and assist Lexmark with marketing and communication initiatives. Those agents will be permitted to obtain only the personal information they need to perform the services. They are required to maintain the confidentiality of the information received on Lexmark’s behalf and are prohibited from using it for any other purpose.
Some Lexmark products may be co-branded and offered in conjunction with another company. If you register products, both Lexmark and the other company may receive the information you provide.
We may access and/or disclose your personal information if we believe such action is necessary to: (a) comply with the law or legal process served on Lexmark; (b) comply with requests for information from police or government authorities, (c) protect and defend the rights or property of Lexmark (including the enforcement of our agreements); or (d) act in urgent circumstances to protect the personal safety of Lexmark employees or members of the public.
Personal information collected by Lexmark may be stored and processed in the United States, Canada or any other country in which we or our agents maintain facilities.
Lexmark or its affiliates could merge with or be acquired by another business or their respective assets may be acquired. Lexmark will seek appropriate protection for personal information in these types of transactions.
You may choose whether or not to provide personal information to Lexmark. The notice we provide to you whenever Lexmark collects your personal information will explain the purpose of which the data is being collected and should help you make this choice. If you choose not to provide the personal information we request online, you can still visit most of Lexmark’s web pages, but you may be unable to access certain options, offers, and services that involve our interaction with you. If you choose to have a relationship with Lexmark, such as contractual or other business relationships, we will naturally continue to contact you in connection with that business relationship.
Lexmark offers you the opportunity to choose whether your personal information is (a) to be disclosed to a non-agent third party or (b) to be used for a purpose other than the purpose for which it was originally collected or subsequently authorized by you. Lexmark will provide you reasonable mechanisms to exercise your choices at the data collection point or by using other methods.
These choices are not applicable to communications from Lexmark primarily for the purpose of administering orders, contracts, support, product safety and security warnings, software updates, or other administrative and transactional notices.
