Skyworks Solutions, Inc. (“Skyworks”) is committed to protecting your privacy. Skyworks
feels it is important that you fully understand the terms and conditions under which
we may use the information we gather from you through your use of our Website (“Site”).
and protect information that we gather from you. Changes to this Policy will be
announced on our Site from time to time, so please check back periodically.
1. What information may we collect from you?
Our Site may collect two types of information about its visitors: Personally Identifiable
Information and Non-Personally Identifiable Information. Our primary goal in collecting
information from you is to provide you with a smooth, efficient and customized experience
while using our Site.
Personally Identifiable Information: This refers to information that lets
us know the specifics of who you are. Personal Identifiable Information may be requested
when you register for E-mail Alerts for investor information, request to receive
an Investor Kit, receive a Skyworks Quarterly Financial Report via live Webcast,
use our Order Status services, use our Shipment Status services, use our Account
Information services or our Product Return service, or submit a resume to us for
employment, or request Product Information and Literature. This information might
include your name, mailing address, telephone number, e-mail address, account number,
social security number, credit card number or other payment or account information,
product or service details, and other identification and contact information. With
this information we can better provide you with personalized services. We may also
gather any Personally Identifiable Information that you voluntarily disclose to
us, for instance, when you e-mail us, contact our customer service representatives
or otherwise send us feedback. For a few services, we may collect your Personally
Identifiable Information on behalf of other service providers and share it with
them. For example, in order to provide you with live Webcasting of our quarterly
financial reports, we may ask you to provide and share that information with our
third party Webcasting service provider.
Non-Personally Identifiable Information: This refers to information that
does not by itself identify a specific individual. We may gather certain information
about you based upon what pages of our Site you visit in several ways. This information
is compiled and analyzed on both a personal and an aggregated basis. This information
may include the Web site’s Uniform Resource Locator (“URL”) of the site that you
last visited, which URL you visit next, what browser you are using, and your Internet
Protocol (“IP”) address. A URL is the global address of documents and other resources
on the World Wide Web. An IP address is an identifier for a computer or device on
a Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol (“TCP/IP”) network, such as the
World Wide Web. Networks use the TCP/IP protocol to route information based on the
IP address of the destination. In other words, an IP address is a number that is
automatically assigned to your computer whenever you are surfing the Web, allowing
Web servers to locate and identify your computer. Computers require IP addresses
in order for users to communicate on the Internet, browse and conduct transactions.
2. Where do we collect information from you and how do we use it?
Our primary goal in collecting information is to provide our visitors with a superior
customized online experience. We may perform statistical analyses of aggregate visitor
behavior. This allows us to measure relative visitor interest in the various areas
of our Site for product and services development purposes. Any information we collect
is used for our own internal purposes to improve the content of our Site, to enhance
users' experiences when visiting our Site, to customize the content and/or layout
of our pages, and to provide the services required by an individual visitor.

information to our third party service provider that will in turn provide you with
an investor kit.

links to other sites on the Internet that are owned and operated by third parties.

5. How can you update or correct your Personally Identifiable Information?
You may access and edit the Personally Identifiable Information that you have provided
to us. During the online registration process you may review, change, or delete
the information that you have submitted. You may change any of your personal information
in your account online at any time. We encourage you to promptly update your information
if it changes. You may ask to have the information on your account deleted or removed;
however, because we keep track of past purchases, you cannot delete information
associated with past purchases. Also, as a security measure we “back up” the data
stored on our systems, and such prior information cannot be completely removed from
our databases. As a result, you should not expect that all of your Personally Identifiable
Information will be completely removed from our backed-up databases.

receive from us. After doing so, you will not receive future communications or mailings
unless you “opt in” again or register for a new account.
7. What security precautions are in place to protect against the loss, misuse or
alteration of your information?
We employ industry-recognized information technology to protect the security of
the Personally Identifiable Information we solicit from you. Our secure servers
protect this information using password protection and encryption, and we may use
firewall technology for additional protection. Furthermore, all of the Personally
Identifiable Information we collect that is stored on a server is also protected
against unauthorized access by physical security means.
