Right to Accessing Personal Information
The EU-U.S. DPF Principles and UK Extension provide individuals located in the EU and UK whose personal information we process with the right to access their personal information in order to review, correct, amend or delete information processed under the Principles. EU or UK individuals who would like to access their personal information may log in to our customer service portal or contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Transfers to Third Parties
As described in our Privacy Notice, we transfer personal information from the EU or UK to third parties, such as our affiliates, business partners and service providers. We contractually require third parties to whom we transfer personal information to provide the same level of protections as the Principles. Silicon Labs will remain liable under the EU-U.S. DPF Principles and UK Extension if an agent processes Personal Data covered by this Data Privacy Framework Notice in a manner inconsistent with the Principles, except where Silicon Labs proves it is not responsible for the event giving rise to the damage. If we disclose personal information to a third party for its own use, you may opt-out of this type of transfer by emailing email@example.com. However, if you choose to opt-out of such disclosures, we may be unable to provide you with product support or services that you request. Silicon Labs remains responsible for the personal information we receive and transfer under the EU-U.S. DPF and/or UK Extension.
In accordance with our legal obligations, we may also transfer, subject to a lawful request, personal information to public authorities for law enforcement or national security purposes.
