Motorola will also share your information with third parties if it believes it is required by law or contract to do so, if all or part of its business is acquired by a third party, or to identify, contact or bring legal action against someone who may be violating the MOTOROLA MOBILE Agreement or may be violating Motorola's or other's rights or causing injury to or interference with Motorola's or other's property.

For other questions or requests about the use of your information, including requests to opt out of the collection or use of certain kinds of information, please contact Motorola by email at privacy@motorola.com or by mail at:

Your information will be transferred to Motorola, a company located in Illinois, USA. If you reside outside of the United States, you hereby specifically consent to the transfer of your information, including without limitation personally identifiable information and all information described herein, to the USA for processing and storage by Motorola. You understand that the U.S. may not have laws that provide the same level of protection as laws in your home country.


WHAT SECURITY MEASURES DOES MOTOROLA TAKE?

Motorola uses standard technical and organizational security measures, where appropriate, to protect the personally identifiable information that it collects and maintains. However, no data transmitted over a wireless or interactive network is 100% secure, and many of the communications you make using MOTOROLA MOBILE will be accessible to third parties. You should therefore be cautious when submitting any personally identifiable information using MOTOROLA MOBILE, and you understand that you are using MOTOROLA MOBILE at your own risk.

As a global company, Motorola has international sites and users all over the world. The personal information you provide may be transmitted, used, stored, and otherwise processed outside of the country where you submitted that information, including jurisdictions that may not have data privacy laws that provide equivalent protection to such laws in your home country.


WHAT ABOUT MY CHILD'S PRIVACY?

Motorola provides MOTOROLA MOBILE for use by persons age 16 and over. Motorola does not seek to collect information about children under the age of 16. Children under 16 years of age should not submit information to Motorola. Motorola will delete information collected from children under 16 immediately upon discovery and will not use the information for any purpose. Motorola encourages parents to take an active role in their children's use of any interactive service or device, and to inform them of the potential dangers of providing information about themselves over the Internet.

This Privacy Statement is effective as of March 1, 2011 and is subject to change without notice.
