1. What Personal Information May Be Collected?

1.1 At Raytheon, it is our policy to create website content that demonstrates our respect for visitors' privacy and allows us to understand our visitors. We may request personal information from you, including your name, home address, email address or telephone number, when you interact with the Site, such as to respond to your requests or to enable you to register to use certain features of this Site. We have implemented additional privacy safeguards when we collect personally identifiable information from children under the age of 13. For more information about how we handle children's information, please see the "Children's Privacy," in Section 6 below.

1.2 When we do collect personal information, we will use it for the purposes indicated in this policy.

1.3 Our Site may provide links to other websites that may have their own personal information collection practices. To the extent that you provide personal information to websites that link to or from our Site, different rules may apply to the use and disclosure of that information. To the extent that the Site includes third-party advertisements, the privacy policy of the advertiser providing the advertisement will govern the use of your personal information collected during your access to the advertisement. Raytheon does not control linking practices of advertisers or sponsors and does not monitor or claim responsibility for any content or privacy practices of such websites. Once you have left our Site, you must read the privacy policy of the advertiser or sponsor to see how your personal information will be handled.

1.4 Raytheon may use an advertising server developed by a third party to display ads on our Site. Some of these ads may contain cookies that are set by third parties (advertisers, sponsors). We do not have access to these cookies or any information that they contain. This Privacy Policy does not cover any use of information that a third-party ad server may have collected from you.

1.5 Apart from the Children's Sites, Raytheon may use the Site as an entry into other networked web pages and websites operated by Raytheon and its subsidiaries (together, the "Transaction Sites"). Please note that an individual Transaction Site may adopt privacy terms particular to the purpose of such Transaction Site or the transaction(s) taking place on such Transaction Site. As Transaction Sites are generally affiliated with commercial transactions that you or your business may have with Raytheon, particularly those which are password-protected or are subject to subscriptions, the privacy terms governing such sites may be supplemented or superseded by separate agreements.

2. Other Types of Information That May Be Collected

2.1 IP Addresses

When you access our Site, we may log your computer's IP address, however, your personal identity will remain unknown to us, except as described in Sections 2.5 and 3.2. We log the IP addresses for system administration, for auditing the use of our Site, and for collecting statistical information for marketing and other purposes.

2.2 Cookies or Tracers

We may place information on your computer to allow us to identify you. This information is known as a "cookie." We use cookies to view information about your activities on our Site, such as your preferences or which pages you have visited on the Site.

By understanding how and when our visitors use the Site, we can continually improve our Site, as well as our products and services. Your browser may have controls that allow you to refuse all cookies or indicate when a cookie is being sent.

We use tracking scripts or "tracers" that recognize a unique identifier from a cookie placed on your computer by another non-Raytheon website. These are used by Raytheon to gauge the success of our own advertising. For instance, we may use a tracer to determine whether you visit our employment pages after visiting a career site where Raytheon placed a banner advertisement. We do not use tracers to gather information on your use of the internet unrelated to Raytheon, or to determine your personal information, and you remain anonymous to Raytheon unless you choose to provide personal information, except as explained in Section 3.2.

Raytheon and its subsidiaries and affiliates may use and disclose your personal information only as set forth herein, except where the terms of a separate privacy policy apply.

Generally, your personal information will not be shared with third parties not affiliated with Raytheon. From time to time we may transfer, disclose or share your personal information with third parties that Raytheon has engaged specifically to handle and deliver certain online activities, including, but not limited to, conducting contests and sweepstakes.

We also may publicly disclose and use the personal information you provide Raytheon in response to a contest, sweepstake, or other project consistent with our Terms and Conditions.

6. Children's Privacy

6.1 Raytheon encourages parents and guardians to spend time online with their children. We urge parents to instruct their children never to provide online their real names, email or physical addresses, or telephone numbers without the permission of a parent or guardian. We recognize a special obligation to protect personal information obtained from children, as may be collected on the Children's Sites only. We fully comply with the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998 ("COPPA"), which requires us take special precautions when collecting personal information from children under the age of 13.

6.2 In compliance with COPPA, we have adopted the following policies to help keep children safe.

A. Any personal information we collect from children under the age of 13 will be used solely by Raytheon or its agents for internal purposes only and will not be sold or otherwise distributed to third parties.

B. We will not knowingly allow children under the age of 13 to access any social media site that may exist on the Site, email accounts, or other services within Raytheon that would allow them to publicly post or otherwise distribute personal information.

C. We will not knowingly ask a child under the age of 13 to divulge more information than is needed to participate in any activity, game, or service.

D. We will not knowingly keep any personal information that is inadvertently included in a child's email submission, help inquiry, or other one-time request, if we know that the child is under the age of 13. Information will be automatically purged or purged immediately after the issue has been resolved.

E. We will not knowingly post any personal information that is inadvertently included in a child's submission to a general audience contribution area if we know that the child is under the age of 13. These submissions will be deleted and handled anonymously thereafter.

F. We will not knowingly provide any direct link to websites that are unsuitable for children or teens.

G. Upon request, we will provide a parent or guardian with a description of the information that may have been provided about their child during a registration process for a program, service or contest on the Site.

6.3 Consistent with COPPA, there are several instances in which we collect information from children, such as:

A. Requesting the contact information of a parent or guardian for the sole purpose of notifying the parent or guardian;

B. Collecting children's contact information on a one-time basis, such as when they enter a contest or ask Raytheon a question using the "contact us" link on our Sites. We will use this information on a one-time basis solely to directly respond to the child's request. We will purge the child's contact information from our systems when we have fulfilled the request, such as after we respond to the child's email or when a contest is over. We will not use children's information to re-contact them or for any other purpose other than fulfilling their requests;

C. Collecting a child's contact information and the contact information of his/her parent or guardian solely to respond directly more than once to a specific request from the child (for example, to satisfy the request for a newsletter subscription). In this instance, the parent or guardian will be notified that the child made such a request and be informed of the information provided by the child. The parent or guardian will have an opportunity at any time to revoke the child's request (i.e., unsubscribe). We will not use the child's personal information to re-contact the child for any other purpose; and

D. Using cookies to collect non-personally-identifiable information on our child-directed Sites for analytics and internal operations purposes.
