This Privacy Policy is incorporated by reference into the CPI Terms of Service (the “Terms”). The terms “CPI,” “we,” and “us” include Communications & Power Industries LLC and our affiliates and subsidiaries. This Privacy Policy explains our online and offline information practices, the kinds of information we may collect, how we intend to use and share that information, and how you can opt-out of a use or correct or change such information.


CPI's privacy policy applies to personal information that CPI collects, organizes, stores, alters, retrieves or discloses (“Process” or “Processing”) in the course of our business, including on CPI websites (each a “Site”), mobile applications (“Apps”), and other online or offline offerings (together with any and all future online and offline offerings operated by or on behalf of CPI, the “Services”). Personal information is any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person, such as your name, address, email address, phone number and fax number (“Personal Information”). All individuals whose responsibilities include the Processing of Personal Information on behalf of CPI are expected to protect that data by adherence to this Privacy Policy. This Privacy Policy is intended to meet requirements globally, including those in North America, Europe, APAC, and other jurisdictions.

This privacy policy does not apply to companies that CPI does not own or control, or to people that CPI does not employ or manage. CPI’s website has links to sites of other companies. CPI is not responsible for those companies’ privacy practices and encourages you to learn about the privacy policies of those companies.


The types of Personal Information we may collect (directly from you or from third-party sources) and our privacy practices depend on the nature of the relationship you have with CPI and the requirements of applicable law. Some of the ways that CPI may collect Personal Information include:
  • When you provide Personal Information directly to CPI through interacting with the Services, transacting with us, participating in surveys, during events, and requesting products or information.
