MOSIS Web Site Privacy Statement

MOSIS respects and protects privacy and confidentiality of information obtained and is committed to protecting your Personal Data.

Information We Collect

The information collected by MOSIS of our customers is initiated by the Customer for information or that required to process orders.

Personal Information

MOSIS does not collect or maintain any information about MOSIS users beyond that required to conduct our business. We record basic personal information that may include: your name, email address, IP address, company name, job title, country, work address, phone, choice of technology, order information, design fabrication information, U.S. export compliance information, and all information provided to us by you via our regular website forms. Most of this essential information refers to the commercial concerns, governmental organizations, and educational institutions that hold accounts with MOSIS, and not to individuals.

We request e-mail addresses in order to facilitate communications with designers and account liaisons. Interested persons may voluntarily give us their e-mail address so that they can receive the occasional announcements that MOSIS distributes to our user community. Account contact and newsletter e-mail address lists are never disclosed outside MOSIS or made available to any other organization or institution.

Participants in the MOSIS Educational Program (MEP) may be asked, as a condition of participation, to permit disclosure by MOSIS of some general information about their submitted and fabricated designs to the foundry in which they fabricate their designs.

Statistical analysis of demographics, account type, and fabrication technologies is required to keep MOSIS’ business focused on customer needs. We therefore collect, use, and share statistical and demographic data which is specific to the type of user, their location, and the fabrication technologies which they use. No personal data is included in analysis data.
