Passive Components Ltd Privacy Notice

This website is owned and operated by Passive Components Ltd. At Passive Components Ltd, we recognize that visitors to our site may be concerned about the information they provide to us and how we handle that information. We've prepared this website Privacy Notice to address those concerns. This notice relates only to information collected through this website.

Information We Collect

Personally-Identifiable Information

On our website, we collect certain personally-identifiable information about our online visitors. Personally-identifiable information relates to an individual consumer - for example, name, address, telephone number and e-mail address. You may provide personally-identifiable information, for example, by registering on our site. We don't require you to register or provide personally-identifiable information to view our or site features. But if you register, you may use certain additional features like "Add to wish list." Also, the more detailed the information you provide in the registration section of the website, the better you may customize your website experience. Here are the ways we collect personally-identifiable information.


To take full advantage of all our offerings, you may choose to register on our site. In the registration process, we request certain information (such as your name and e-mail address) so we can provide you with the communications you request and customize our contacts with you. We also may use the registration information you provide for other purposes to which you consent.


When you ask us to send you newsletters by e-mail, you may provide us with certain information like your e-mail address so we can fulfill your request.

"Contact Us" Link

If you e-mail us through the "Contact Us" link on this site, we ask you for information such as your first name and e-mail address so we can respond to your questions and comments. You may choose to provide additional information as well.

Tell A Friend

We may give you the opportunity to tell your friends about new products on our website. If you take advantage of our Tell A Friend option, we may ask you for your friend's and your first name and e-mail address. We use the information you provide only to send the e-mail you requested we forward. We may use information about you in other ways, however, if you've given us permission to do so.

Aggregate and Non-Personal Information

We collect certain aggregate and non-personal information when you visit our website. Aggregate and non-personal information does not relate to a single, identifiable visitor. It tells us such things as how many users visited our site, the pages accessed and the products viewed. By collecting this information, we learn how to best tailor our website to our visitors. We collect this information through "cookie" technology as explained below.


Like many companies, we use "cookies" on our website. Cookies are bits of text that are placed on your computer's hard drive when you visit certain websites. Cookies may enhance your online experience by saving your preferences while you are visiting a particular site.

When you visit our website, cookies are placed on your computer. We use cookies to tell us, for example, whether you've visited us before or if you're a new visitor and to help us identify site features and products in which you may have the greatest interest. We collect this information to enhance your experience on our website.

The "help" portion of the toolbar on most browsers will tell you how to stop accepting new cookies, how to be notified when you receive a new cookie, and how to disable existing cookies. Remember, though, without cookies, you may not be able to take full advantage of all of Pasive Components Ltd website features.

How We Use Personally-Identifiable Information

We may use the information you provide to contact you from time to time. For example, we may (i) send you promotional materials and other communications you request, (ii) respond to your comments or questions, or (iii) contact you if needed while processing a product or service you requested through our website. We also may use the information you provide to contact you for your opinions on Passive Components Ltd's products or the website.

We also use personally-identifiable information about you to improve our website features and content and to analyze website usage. In addition, we use personally-identifiable information for market research purposes if you give us permission to do so.

How We Share Personally-Identifiable Information

Except as described below, we don't sell, transfer or otherwise disclose to third parties the personally-identifiable information we collect on this website without your prior consent. We disclose information where we think it's necessary to investigate or prevent an actual or suspected crime or injury to ourselves or others or where disclosure is required by law. We also may disclose information in response to a request from law enforcement authorities or other government officials. We also disclose information to third parties we retain to perform services on our behalf. For example, we hire service providers to help us run promotions, fulfill orders you may place and provide customer service. These service providers may have access to personally-identifiable information about our website visitors if it is needed to perform their functions for Pasive Components Ltd, but they are not authorized by Pasive Components Ltd to use the information for their own marketing purposes.

We reserve the right to transfer any information we have about you in the event we sell or transfer all or a portion of our business or assets. Should such a sale or transfer occur, we will use reasonable efforts to try to require that the transferee use personal information provided through this website in a manner that is consistent with this Privacy Notice.
