We also collect your personal data from your use and interaction with our products and services (including through Xilinx WebTalk), the Xilinx Go App and our website www.xilinx.com. For example, we receive information that your computer or other device sends to us in connection with access requests and via cookies and other technologies that we use to analyze and enhance your use of our website.
We collect and process your personal data including, but not limited to, the following types of personal data:
The provision of certain personal data is mandatory (and may be required accordance with a contractual requirement or to enter into a contract). The collection of any such data will be made clear at the time of collection of the information. If you choose not to submit this information, you may not be able to receive our products, technologies and services.
We use your personal data for the purposes described below, except where restricted by law. In doing so, we rely on a number of separate legal bases to lawfully process such information.
We process your personal data where it is necessary to perform our contractual obligations with you. In particular, we process your personal data to:
We may also process your information where necessary to further our legitimate interests and those of others, where those legitimate interests are not overridden by your rights or interests. In particular, the processing of your personal data is necessary for the following legitimate interests:
In certain circumstances, we may also use your personal information to comply with our legal obligations such as to comply with applicable laws (including export control laws and responding to binding legal process) or to assist law enforcement and government agencies when such is in our or their legitimate interests and where we have a good-faith belief that such cooperation is reasonably necessary or meets the applicable legal standards.
You may interact with third parties through our website. Those interactions are governed by the privacy policies of those third parties, and not by this Policy. Interactions that fall into this category include:
Where necessary, and in accordance with the purposes set out in this Policy, we share your personal data only to the extent necessary for the purposes set out in this Policy. Your personal data will be shared with other Xilinx group affiliates and third parties that help us operate, provide, improve, understand, support, and market our products and services. For example, we share information with a number of third parties including our Alliance Program partners, advertising partners, training providers, event coordinators, payment processors, order fulfilment partners, shipping providers, customer support service providers and authorized distributors and sales representatives. When we outsource the processing of personal data to third parties or provide personal data to third party service providers, we require those third parties to protect that personal data with appropriate security measures and prohibit or restrict them from using the personal data for their own purposes or from disclosing the personal data to others.
We do not sell your personal data.
As our business develops, we may buy and sell assets. In such transactions, personal data generally is one of the transferred business assets. As a result, your personal data may also be disclosed, where permitted by applicable law, in connection with a corporate restructuring, sale, or assignment of assets, merger, divestiture, or other changes of control or financial status.
We and our marketing partners, affiliates, analytics, and online customer support providers use technologies such as cookies, beacons, tags, and scripts to analyse trends, administer our website, track users’ movements around the website, and to gather demographic information about our user base as a whole. We may receive reports based on the use of these technologies by these companies on an individual or an aggregated basis.
You may choose to stop receiving our newsletter or marketing emails by following the unsubscribe instructions included in these emails, or you can visit the Email Subscription Preferences page.
We will maintain appropriate technical and organization measures to protect against accidental or unlawful destruction, loss, alteration, unauthorized disclosure of, or access to your information. We will provide a level of security that is proportionate to the risks that are presented by the processing activity, having regard to the state of the art, the costs of implementation and the nature, scope, context and purposes of the processing.
We will retain your personal data for as long as is necessary for the purposes set out in this Policy for as long as your account is active or as needed to provide you services or to perform our contract with you. We will retain and use your personal data to the extent necessary to comply with our legal obligations, to resolve disputes and to enforce our agreements.
Like most international business, Xilinx operates globally and therefore personal data may also be disclosed and transferred to a person or company that is not part of the Xilinx group and located in a country outside the EU/EEA for any of the purposes set out in this Policy. Some of these countries may not have the same levels of data protection as are present in the EU, in which case Xilinx will transfer and disclose your data in compliance with the European Commission’s adequacy decisions on certain countries and the Standard Contractual Clauses approved by the European Commission. You can request a copy of the Standard Contractual Clauses by sending an email to email@example.com.

In many cases where we process your information, you may also have a right to restrict or limit the ways in which we use your personal data.
In certain circumstances, you also have the right to object to the processing of your personal data by us. You can request that we delete your personal data and we will carry out this request unless certain exceptional reasons arise permitting us to keep certain personal data about you.
