When you enter a contest or other promotional feature, we may ask for your name, address, e-mail address, etc. so that we can administer the contest and notify winners.
We may also use the information we collect to occasionally notify you about important functionality changes to the web site, new RS Electronics services and special offers that we believe you'll find valuable.
How does RS Electronics protect customer information?
When you place orders or request information, we offer the use of a secure server. The secure server software (SSL) encrypts all information you input before it is sent to us. Furthermore, all of the customer data we collect is protected against unauthorized access.
