"COOKIES" & TAGS
A "cookie" is an element of data that a website can send to your browser, which may then store it in your system. We are asking permission to place a “cookie” on your computer's hard drive. If you agree, then your browser adds the text in a small file. Each "cookie" has a unique identifier and structure assigned by the sending Web site. Only our Web site can access a cookie left behind in a prior session (when you return to the Microchip Electronics site). Please be assured that your identity will not become public information on the Internet because you visited our site.
Microchip Electronics uses "cookies" to streamline the customer experience, because they allow the website to create a personalized experience and recall some of your settings.
Note that "cookies" cannot enable the web server to read from your hard drive. They also cannot get your email address against your will, they cannot destroy files on your computer, they cannot create executable programs, and they cannot obtain sensitive information about you. Also, "cookies" from one site cannot be read by another site; so your information cannot be passed from site to site.
Also remember, if at any time you believe your privacy is or may be violated by the use of "cookies," you can have them erased from your hard drive.
Information about website usage and visitors to our website is shared with third-parties we contract with for the purpose of targeting our Internet advertisements in other sites. The information we collect and share through this technology is not personally identifiable. For more information about our third-party advertisers or for your choices about not having this anonymous information used, please click here.

This information includes your name, address, email address and credit card information. This information is used to ensure a streamlined customer experience, so that we can get your purchases to you as soon as possible.
This information may also be used for other purposes, such as mailing or e-mailing to you relevant company or product information. Periodically, Microchip Electronics may make the names and addresses of certain customers available to companies that offer products and/or services that may be of interest to you. You may elect to opt out of either of these uses of your mailing or e-mail address.
Please note that emails may be sent to you by Microchip Electronics or an authorized agent working for Microchip Electronics, so that we can get information to you that we think will be of interest. All authorized agents operate with a confidentiality agreement. Information sent in this manner will always include "opt out" options if you decide you do not want to receive further emails.
