Company Credentials and Contact Information
Cypress prefers partnering with companies that have an established track record of successful business for at least two years, including having done business with users of Cypress' products and solutions. We also require all partners to have a current and regularly maintained website. We also expect design partner companies to alert Cypress about any changes to contact information or profile listed in the Cypress website.
The third party companies and consultants identified in the Cypress Design Partner Program are not part of Cypress, nor are they controlled by Cypress. These design partners are qualified, to the best of our knowledge, to engage in design work with our customers. Their contact information is provided solely as a convenience to our customers. It is the customer's responsibility to research the qualifications of any design partner before engaging in any activity with them. This includes, but is not limited to, checking references, reviewing examples of previous design work, and checking with appropriate business regulatory agencies. Cypress will make no warranty, and will accept no responsibility or liability for any design partners or the work performed by them. Engagement with the design partners on these pages of any kind will be done at the sole risk of the customer.
