These data protection provisions shall apply in addition to all Terms and Conditions of AVNET. They exclusively regulate the handling by AVNET of data relating to users of the website.
"Personal data" is information pertaining to the personal and factual circumstances of a natural person, i.e., for example, name, address or telephone number of this natural person. Information which cannot be directly linked to the person of a user, such as, for example, the number of users of a site in a specific period, is not personal data
The websites on which AVNET offers its services are generally referred to as the "AVNET website".
Responsible for the purpose of providing this Website for AVNET and its subsidiaries and affiliates, referred to as “AVNET” is: AVNET (Pty) Limited, 31 Commerce Crescent East, Eastgate Extension 12, Kramerville, Sandton, 2199, South Africa.
The users registered on the AVNET website are referred to as "Users".
Personal data which are stated by the Users when registering to use the AVNET website are referred to as "Registration Details".
AVNET shall abide by the following basic principles when dealing with the personal data of Users:
The following registration details shall be collected and processed unless a small volume of data is involved:
So-called "session cookies" are used on the AVNET website which are assigned to Users for the duration of their visit, so that the system can recognize them. Session cookies are used to make the system more user-friendly and are automatically deleted at the end of the session unless your browser carries out local storage that goes beyond this due to its individual settings. A user-based evaluation of the surfing behaviour of users by means of the session cookies does not take place.
Each time a site is called up access data are stored in a protocol file, the server log. The data record which is stored in doing so contains the following information:
AVNET only evaluates these log files, for statistical purposes. This serves to optimize the AVNET website, for instance by analyzing user behaviour with respect to dates and times and the data volume called up on the AVNET Website. In addition, AVNET can spot possible errors through the log files, e.g. defective links or program errors, and therefore use the log files for improving and further developing the AVNET Website. AVNET cannot link the called up sites and uses stored in the server log to determinable persons.
Registration may only be carried out by adults and persons who are authorized to do so for the company stated during registration.
AVNET shall reserve the right to amend these data protection provisions at any time if changes are necessary due to omissions identified at a later date with respect to new functions provided by AVNET or due to new statutory provisions. AVNET shall inform its registered Users of any changes to these data protection provisions by email using the email address stated within the framework of registration.
These data protection provisions can be called up at any time under the link "Data Protection" and printed off.
