This Privacy Statement is subject to change without notice. It was last updated on Aug. 13, 2013.
Motorola Mobility LLC (“Motorola”) – a Google company – recognises that privacy and security are important for our customers and website users. This statement describes how Motorola collects, uses and safeguards information you provide when using motorola.com. By using this website, you consent to the collection and use of your information by Motorola as described in the policy currently in effect. Any changes to this statement will be posted on our websites, so please check back periodically to ensure that you have the most current statement.
What information is collected at motorola.com and how is it used?
We may collect personal information about you when you place an order with Motorola including name, address, email address, phone numbers, payment card information, information used to personalise a Motorola mobile device or software experience, National Insurance number (or equivalent national identification number), date of birth and other information. Motorola uses this information to facilitate order processing and to enable us to contact you if a problem arises with your order. Additionally, if you purchase a mobile device or other product requiring service your personal information may be used to obtain a credit report, if necessary. Such information is required when making a purchase.
We may ask you for, and collect, personal information at other times, including when you enter a sweepstakes or contest; when you participate in a promotion or marketing campaign sponsored by Motorola or one of our business partners; when you complete surveys; when you participate in a user forum or blog hosted by Motorola or one of our business partners. We use the information you provide to help us design and build better products, to customise your shopping experience, and to provide advice and purchase recommendations. Motorola may also match user information with third-party data to help us better understand our customers.
Motorola also conducts research on our users' demographics, interests and behaviour based on the information provided to us when making a purchase, during a promotion, from surveys and from our server log files. We do this to better understand and serve our users. This research is compiled and analysed on an aggregated basis so as to prevent identification of personal information relating to any one individual. Motorola may share this aggregated data with our business partners.
In addition, our web server logs collect the domain names and certain related data of visitors to our websites. This information is aggregated to measure number of visits, average time spent on a Motorola website, pages viewed and website usage information. We use this information to measure the use of our sites; to improve the content of our sites; and to provide tailored advertisements. Aggregated information is not used in such a form that would enable direct connection of any personal information to our visitors.
Finally, we may also ask for your personal information when you express an interest in employment opportunities at Motorola.

Who is collecting the information?
When you are on a Motorola site and are asked for personal information, you are sharing that information with Motorola and its subsidiaries and related companies. Additionally, if you purchase a mobile device or other product requiring service, your personal information may be collected by a third-party company working with Motorola. Motorola may also contract with third-party companies to perform services for Motorola on its website that require these companies to collect personal information (e.g. hosting a website sweepstakes, promotion or survey, or selling software downloads).
In addition, Motorola's websites may allow third parties to provide products and services directly to Motorola customers. Such relationships are designated with a "Provided By" or "Powered By" company logo or other similarly worded designation. If you choose to purchase a product or service from such a third party, that party will collect your information and share it with Motorola. You may review the privacy practices of the third party either by clicking the link on the bottom of the page or by clicking on the "Provided by Company" logo, which will take you to their website.
Does Motorola share my information?
In addition, Motorola shares the information you provide with Motorola subsidiaries and related companies. If you purchase a mobile device, or other product requiring service, your personal information is shared with the service provider/carrier with whom you subscribe. Additionally, if you express an interest in a product requiring a particular type of service, Motorola may share your personal information with your local service provider in order to determine whether such service is available in your area.
Motorola may share your personal information with third-party business partners so that they may provide services to Motorola that are consistent with the terms of this Privacy Statement, and this web site (e.g. order processing and delivery, database management, sending targeted emails, software sales, and conducting sweepstakes and other promotions on behalf of Motorola). Motorola takes great pride in utilising only reputable business partners. Motorola may also, on occasion, provide personal information to third-party businesses as part of a specific product, service or promotion.
Motorola shares website usage information about visitors to our websites who have received a targeted promotional campaign with reputable third-party advertising companies for the purpose of targeting future campaigns and upgrading visitor information used in reporting statistics. For this purpose, we and our third-party advertising companies note some of the pages you visit on our websites through the use of pixel tags. The information collected by our third-party advertising companies through the use of these pixel tags is not personally identifiable.
What choices do I have regarding the collection, use and distribution of my personal information?
Motorola or its business partners may send you email or direct mail regarding our products and services. If you do not want to receive such information, simply tell us when you give us your personal information, or follow the directions contained on the mailing to remove your name from our mailing list(s). You may also visit http://optout.motorola.com.
On certain types of Motorola promotions, we will ask for your email address in order to contact you in the event you have won a prize. When you participate in these types of promotions, you may receive promotion-related email. Occasionally these promotion-related email messages may include targeted advertisements. If you do not wish to receive such advertisements, you can choose not to participate in such promotions or contests.
Please note that by refusing to provide personal information or by denying or withdrawing consent to use personal information for purposes identified, you may be unable to participate in certain programs or activities sponsored by Motorola.
You also have the right to access (review, correct or delete) your personal information by contacting Motorola. Individuals are responsible for providing Motorola with accurate and complete personal information and for contacting Motorola if correction of such information is required. Please note that, where permitted, we may charge a nominal fee for fulfilling access requests and that we reserve the right to disallow unreasonable requests for access.
If you have established a "user profile" on a Motorola website, you may change the information you provided by visiting that portion of the website and re-submitting your information.
Please direct any questions concerning Motorola's privacy practices to firstname.lastname@example.org. Requests to unsubscribe from ("opt-out" of) communications from Motorola may also be sent to email@example.com. Or, Telephone number: 1 300 138823. You may also mail your inquiry/request to:

What about information security?
When you place an order or provide personal information, we use certain security measures, such as encryption, where appropriate. Encryption scrambles the information in your purchase, including your credit card number, so this information can only be viewed by Motorola. Motorola uses Secure Socket Layer (SSL) encryption technology, where appropriate, for Internet-based transactions.
However, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we have taken appropriate steps to protect your personal information, Motorola cannot ensure or otherwise warrant the security of any information you provide to us or from our Web site and therefore you use our site at your own risk.
What about my child's privacy?
Websites operated by, or on behalf of, Motorola and its worldwide affiliated companies and subsidiaries are intended for use by persons age 13 and over. Motorola does not seek to collect information about children under the age of 13. No information should be submitted to or posted on Motorola's web sites by users under 13 years of age.
If a child under the age of 13 submits personal information to Motorola's websites, we delete the information as soon as we discover it was provided by a child under 13 years of age and do not use it for any purpose. Motorola encourages parents to take an active role in their children's use of the Internet and to inform them of the potential dangers of providing information about themselves over the Internet.
