Tellabs respects your privacy and is committed to protecting it. This Privacy Policy explains how Tellabs treats your information, correspondence, and software exchanged through a Tellabs website to best serve you.

Information Tellabs requests or collects from you

To provide the superior services offered by a Tellabs website, Tellabs collects from you two types of information: personally identifiable information and technology-related information.

Personally identifiable information: This is information that identifies the person who is using a Tellabs website. When you register for services offered by a Tellabs website, Tellabs may request personally identifiable information such as your name, mailing address, telephone number and email address. When you make an on-line business transaction through a Tellabs website, Tellabs may request personally identifiable information such as your account number with Tellabs, credit card number or other payment account information. Tellabs may also collect personally identifiable information that you voluntarily disclose to Tellabs through electronic correspondence, such as comments transmitted by email.

Technology-related information: This is information related to your computer when you access a Tellabs website. Because technology is employed in collecting this information, it is not readily apparent to you that it is being collected. An example of technology-related information which Tellabs may collect is your computer's Internet Protocol ("IP") address. An IP address is a number, uniquely identifying a computer, necessary for computer to web server communication on the Internet.

How you can view and change your personally identifiable information

In using the Tellabs Enterprise Portal service, you can view and update your personally identifiable information by accessing the "My Profile" hotlink, under the "My Account" area in the global navigation bar, or by sending an email of your updates to .

To obtain statistics, Tellabs collects your clickstream (the record of your traversal through a Tellabs website).

Site improvement: Upon accessing a Tellabs website, Tellabs collects information, such as the browser you are using and the screen size you are using, to improve the content of the site, make your traversal through the site more efficient and tailor the content and layout of the site to your preferences.

Administration: Tellabs collects your computer's IP address for the purposes of administration, such as monitoring the level of activity on a Tellabs website and diagnosing problems with Tellabs web servers.

URL prior to accessing a Tellabs website: To enforce the Tellabs Linking Policy, Tellabs will collect the Uniform Resource Locator, or "URL," which is the address of the web site you last visited prior to accessing a Tellabs website.

Cookies: In a very limited manner, Tellabs uses cookies (small pieces of information Tellabs web servers transmit to your computer) to allow Tellabs web servers make your traversal through a Tellabs website more efficient. For instance, Tellabs may use cookies to remember items selected for purchase in an on-line business transaction in order to generate a total charge for the entire transaction.
