Bose Press Room Privacy Policy

The information collected through this Press Room website is controlled by Bose Corporation, which is headquartered in the United States. Ensuring that you understand what information Bose Corporation collects about you, how we use and share this information, and the steps you may take to limit this use or sharing, is fundamental to our respect for our website visitors.

This Privacy Policy is specific to the Bose Press Room website. It does not apply to the Bose.com website or to other Bose websites, including our country-specific sites. Each of those websites has its own privacy policy, which can be accessed through the portal at http://global.bose.com/.

Bose does not collect any information through the Press Room website that we can use to personally identify you, such as your name, email address, or telephone number. As discussed below, however, the website does automatically collect certain information from your computer or other devices that you use to access the Press Room. The collection, use, and sharing of such information is subject to this Privacy Policy.

Our collection and use of information

We automatically receive and record information from your computer (or other device) and your browser, including your IP address and domain name, software and hardware attributes, the pages you visit on our website, the referring URL, and certain cookie information (see below). To do this, we may use web logs or applications that recognize your computer and gather information about its online activity. We also partner with certain third parties to collect and analyze some of this information (see “Sharing of information with third parties,” below).

We use “cookies” on the Press Room website. A cookie is a small amount of data, often including an anonymous unique identifier, sent to your browser from a website. If your browser’s preferences are set to accept it, the cookie is stored on your computer’s hard drive.

These cookies collect information about your use of our site during your current session and over time, your computer’s operating system and browser type, your Internet service provider, your domain name and IP address, the website you visited before our site, and the link you used to leave our site.

We use this information for a number of purposes, including:

  • To count and recognize Press Room visitors;
  • To analyze how visitors use the Press Room and various features on the website;
  • To measure the popularity and effectiveness of different website content and features;
  • To improve the website and enhance visitors’ browsing experiences;
  • To enable other website analytics and research concerning the Press Room; and
  • To manage our business.

If you are concerned about having cookies on your computer, you can remove them. You can also set your browser to block cookies, or to notify you when you receive a cookie, allowing you to decide whether or not to accept it.

Sharing of information with third parties

We partner with certain third parties to collect and analyze the information discussed above. These third parties may use web logs or set and access cookies on your computer or other device. In particular, the Bose Press Room website uses Google Analytics for the purposes discussed above.

The use of cookies by third parties is subject to their own privacy policies, not this Privacy Policy. If you prefer to prevent third parties from setting and accessing cookies on your computer, you may set your browser to block cookies. And you may opt out of the use of cookies by Google Analytics here.

In addition, Bose uses other third parties to host and manage the Press Room website. These third parties may collect and/or use your information to assist Bose with respect to the purposes discussed above.

Finally, Bose may use or share your information with third parties:

  • To respond to subpoenas, court orders, or legal process, or to establish, protect, or exercise our legal rights or defend against legal claims;
  • When we believe it is necessary in order to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding illegal activities, suspected fraud, situations involving potential threats to our property or the physical safety of any person, or violations of our terms and conditions;
  • To facilitate the financing, securitization, insuring, sale, assignment, or other disposal of all or part of Bose or our business or assets; and
  • As otherwise permitted or required by applicable law.
