Why Does Xerox Ask For Personally Identifiable Information?
On the Xerox website, we offer online shopping and other Web-based customer services. Our online forms make it easy for visitors and customers to communicate with Xerox or make purchases.

Xerox asks only for the minimum amount of information needed to assist you.
Most online forms on the Xerox site ask for a small amount of relevant information, such as name, email, street address and phone number. Some forms may ask for a customer number or product serial number. Xerox uses personally identifiable information submitted online to:
respond to questions from customers or visitors to the website
provide customer support

How Does Xerox Handle Personally Identifiable Information?
While we at Xerox are pleased to offer convenient services and shopping options online in the United States, we are also mindful to protect the confidentiality of the personally identifiable information we receive.
Our agents and partners protect personally identifiable information.
When a customer purchases equipment or supplies or arranges for service online from Xerox it may be necessary to transfer personally identifiable information to an independent Xerox-authorised agent or partner, who then completes the order. Xerox requires that its independent agents and partners handle personally identifiable information with the same concern for personal privacy as Xerox.
Whenever Xerox transfers personally identifiable information to its agents and partners, it is with the understanding that the information should be used for the sole purpose of fulfilling the customer's request and that the information should be kept confidential and secure at all times.
In some instances, when Xerox transfers personally identifiable information to one of its authorised agents or partners, that agent or partner may need to share information with an unaffiliated third party for the purpose of completing an order or providing a service.
Xerox gets your consent before sending you additional information.
Xerox may wish to contact you with announcements about products and services that may be of interest to you. If you do not want to receive these announcements, you can click an opt-out box on the appropriate Xerox Web page before submitting your information. Some forms on our site have no opt-out box. That is because those forms are "reply only" forms used only to respond to your particular request. If you receive email from Xerox and wish to discontinue these mailings, you may unsubscribe by visiting www.xerox.com/uk/opt-in, or by sending an email with the word "Remove" in the subject line to email@example.com, or by mailing a request to:
