We will follow the Ericsson privacy principles.

Information collection and use

The data controller in the case of www.ericsson.com is Ericsson AB, Stockholm. The data controller in the case of other websites that reference or otherwise use this Internet privacy policy is the Ericsson group entity set out in the website that references to this Internet privacy policy.

Some Ericsson group entities, offerings, programs and/or websites may have their own, possibly different, privacy policies. We therefore encourage you to read the privacy policy of each of the Ericsson websites, offerings, or programs you visit or review.

Ericsson may collect information from our users at several different points on our website.

Orders, surveys and contests

We may request information from users in order forms. Here a user must provide contact information (such as name and shipping address) and, sometimes, financial information (credit card number, expiration date). This information is used for billing purposes and to fulfill customer orders. If we have trouble processing an order, this contact information is used to get in touch with the user.

From time to time our site may request information from users via surveys or contests.
