If you accept, we at Edmund primarily collect personal data to find out how you, as a visitor, interact on our website. We use information, statistics and analysis about our visitors to improve and adapt the user-friendliness of our website. This can be exemplified by us adapting articles and content, functionality, forms or advertisements that are based on our visitors’ interaction on our website. We always process the data with the visitor’s consent.
Secondarily, we collect and manage visitors’ data so that we can maintain contact with our visitors. We may contact you by phone, email or other means to communicate (for example, about invitations to events, customer surveys and newsletters) or to inform you (for example, about our services and offers). Information stored is, for example, first and last name, email address, phone number and company. You always have the right to unsubscribe from our mailings, and then we will delete your data.
If you opt-out, we will not track you when you visit our website. To respect your wishes, however, we must place a single cookie file in your browser so our systems can see that you may not be tracked.
We use opt-in and opt-out cookies, which exist so that you can accept (opt-in) or decline (opt-out) cookies. In addition, our website uses a third-party service, Google Analytics, which requires cookies (see section ‘Google Analytics’ below).
We use the third-party service Google Analytics to analyze visitor frequency and traffic, as well as the use of our website.
The statistics provide information on how many visitors visit our website, which pages are visited and how long a visitor stays on our website. We also receive information about which geographical areas visitors come from, how visitors reach our website, and which search engines or social media. Via Google, we use session cookies, reset after visitors leave our site and/or within 30 minutes. We store the data for 26 months unless otherwise stated.
Only in exceptional cases will the entire IP address be transferred to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. Google uses this information on behalf of Edmund to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activities for Edmund and to provide other services related to the use of the website and the Internet to Edmund. If necessary, Google will also forward this information to third parties as far as required by law or if third parties process this data on behalf of Google. The IP address transmitted by your browser under Google Analytics will under no circumstances be combined with other data from Google. You can prevent cookies from being saved by setting your browser software.
You can also prevent the collection and storage of your data by Google Analytics by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available at this link.
Note that you must rerun the process above if you are using a different terminal or browser. For more information on Google Analytics privacy, please visit this link.
Edmund has taken reasonable technical and organizational safeguards to protect your data against unauthorized access, misuse, unauthorized sharing, alteration, loss and destruction. Your personal data is stored and processed within the European Union.
We work with partners who, during ongoing projects or for work-related tasks, may need your personal data for us to work together. However, we do not forward any data to any other third party without your consent unless we are legally obliged to do so. This may be the case, for example, if we must cooperate with the security authorities in connection with legal investigations.
We may involve external technical service providers to assist us in operating our website and/or providing the functionality and services offered to you. These service providers act exclusively on our behalf and are obliged to take all necessary technical and organizational measures to protect your personal data in accordance with data protection requirements.
Suppose information about your data to third parties (e.g. regulatory authorities) is necessary. In that case, we will provide you with additional information about the intended use in connection with the collection, processing and / or use – unless it is legally permitted or necessary in this case.
In accordance with the general provisions on the protection of personal data, you always have the right to information about the data that Edmund has stored about you and the right to correct, block and delete this data.
