YOUR CHOICES AND ACCESS
You may visit and browse our Site without providing any personal information, and you can always choose not to provide us with the personal information we request. However, choosing not to provide us with certain information that we request may prevent you from accessing or using certain portions of our Site.
If you would like to change any information you submitted to us, or if you want to opt-out of receiving future communications from us, please contact us. Upon request, when Cree acts as a Controller, as defined by global privacy regulations, Cree will provide individuals with reasonable access to their Personal Data to allow individuals the opportunity to correct, amend or delete Personal Data where it is inaccurate, or has been processed without your consent. A request may be denied under certain circumstances, such as where the burden or expense of providing access would be disproportionate to the risks to the privacy of the individual in the case in question, or where the rights of persons other than the individual would be violated. When Cree is a processor, as defined by global privacy regulations, and not a Controller, it will take reasonable steps to help the appropriate Controller respond and will act on the reasonable direction of the Controller’s customers with respect to access.
When Cree acts as a Controller, Cree offers individuals the opportunity to choose (opt in) whether Personal Data is (i) to be disclosed to a non-agent third party or (ii) to be used for a purpose that is materially different from the purpose(s) for which it was originally collected or subsequently authorized by the individuals. Individuals will be provided with clear, conspicuous, and readily available mechanisms to exercise their choice.
For Sensitive Personal Data, when Cree acts as a Controller, Cree will give individuals the opportunity to affirmatively express consent (opt in) if such information is to be (i) disclosed to a third party or (ii) used for a purpose other than those for which it was originally collected or subsequently authorized by the individuals through the exercise of opt-in choice. Cree will treat as sensitive any Personal Data received from a third party where the third party identifies and treats it as sensitive via a Controller or Agent contract with Cree.
When Cree is not the Controller with respect to certain Personal Data, we will effectuate individual choices communicated to us by the Controller.
Cree takes reasonable and appropriate measures to protect personal information from loss, misuse and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration and destruction, considering the risks involved and the nature of the personal information.
