Privacy Policy

 


LEDVANCE Commitment to Privacy

Protecting the security and privacy of your personal data is important to LEDVANCE; therefore, we conduct our business in compliance with applicable data privacy and security laws. We hope the policy outlined below will help you understand what data LEDVANCE may collect, how LEDVANCE uses and safeguards that data and with whom we may share it.

Personal data

Through our Web Sites, LEDVANCE will not collect any personal data about you (e.g., your name, address, telephone number or e-mail address), unless you voluntarily choose to provide us with it and respectively provide your consent (e.g., by registration, survey), or unless otherwise permitted by applicable laws and regulations. We may collect personal data about you indirectly from sources other than through our own Web Sites. The personal data that we collect from various sources may be combined.

Data Collected Automatically

When you access our Web Sites or use our mobile applications, we may automatically (that is, not by registration) collect additional data (such as type of Internet browser, IP address, and operating system used, domain name of the internet site which directed you to our site, number of visits, average time spent on the site, pages viewed, information on your interaction with the site). We may use this data and share it with our worldwide affiliates or third parties to monitor the attractiveness of our Web Sites and mobile applications, improve the performance or content, and tailor content for you or for other marketing purposes.

Purpose of Use

When you provide us with personal data, we may:

  • Use it to offer the Web Site’s services and functions, to administer your use of the Web Site,

  • Store and process personal data (on our own or via a third party on our behalf) and share it with our worldwide affiliates (meaning entities controlled by, controlling, or under common control with LEDVANCE) to understand better your business and personal needs and how to implement and improve our business practices, product and services.

  • Use personal data you provide us (on our own or via a third party on our behalf) to contact you about an offer in support of your business or personal needs or to conduct online surveys to understand better our customer’s needs.

We may collect, use, disclose, and share your personal data:

  • As provided herein;

  • With your consent;

  • When you participate in contests, giveaways, sweepstakes or similar promotions on the site and as a condition to receiving any reward or prize;

  • When we reasonably believe it is required by law or governmental or judicial authorities;

  • As reasonably necessary to enforce our Terms of Use, to establish or preserve a legal claim or defense, to prevent fraud or other illegal activities, including attacks on LEDVANCE’s information technology systems, or protect the rights of LEDVANCE or others;

  • For those purposes that were identified at the time the data was collected; and/or

  • For any additional purpose that is directly related to the original purpose for which the personal data was collected.

We may employ third party companies and individuals to host or support our Web Sites, application, or the services to which they relate. These third parties may have access to your personal data to perform such tasks. We ensure, through contractual agreements or other measures, that third parties protect your personal data appropriately. We do not sell or otherwise market your personal data to other third parties, except as described.
To the extent required to help us fulfill your order(s) or request, we may share personal data with others, such as our business partners, postal/logistics companies, or customs agents/authorities.
We may transfer your personal data if we sell or transfer all or a portion of our business or assets, including to any successor company whether via merger or otherwise.
If you choose not to have your personal data used to support our customer relationship (e.g., direct marketing, market research, or shared with LEDVANCE affiliates), we will respect your choice.

"Cookies" - Information Stored Automatically on Your Computer and Web Tracking

When you view one of our Web sites, we may store some data on your computer in the form of a "cookie" to automatically recognize your computer or device the next time you visit. Cookies can help us in many ways, for example, by allowing us to tailor a Web site to better match your interests or to store your password to save you having to re-enter it each time. By visiting our Web Sites, you consent to the placement of cookies in your browser and device in accordance with this Privacy Policy. If you do not wish to receive cookies, please configure your Internet browser to erase all cookies from your computer's hard drive, block all cookies or to receive a warning before a cookie is stored. If you do decide to block cookies, you may not be able to take advantage of all of the sites features.
Some browsers have incorporated Do Not Track (“DNT”) preferences. Most of these features, when turned on, send signals to the web site you are visiting that you do not wish to have information about your online searching and browsing activities collected and used.  As there is not yet a common agreement about how to interpret DNT signals, we do not honor DNT signals from web site browsers at this time.  However, you may refuse or delete cookies.  If you refuse or delete cookies, some of our web site functionality may be impaired.  Please refer to your browser’s Help instructions to learn more about how to manage cookies and the use of other tracking technologies.

International Data Transfer

We may transfer your personal data to any of our worldwide affiliates when processing data. We may also transfer your personal data to a third party outside your country of origin. We have implemented commercially reasonable and adequate contractual, physical, technical and organizational safeguards to protect your personal data from accidental loss and from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure.

Children

We understand the importance of taking extra precautions to protect the privacy and safety of children. We will not knowingly collect personal data from children under the age of 13, or equivalent minimum age in the relevant jurisdiction, without insisting that they seek prior parental consent when required by applicable law. We will only use or disclose personal data about a child to the extent permitted by law, to seek verifiable parental consent pursuant to local law and regulations or to protect a child.  If we learn that we have collected the personal data of a child under 13, or equivalent minimum age depending on jurisdiction, we will take steps to delete the information as soon as possible.
If at any time a parent needs to access, correct, or delete data associated with a child’s use of our Web Sites and services, they may contact us by emailing Privacy.AME@LEDVANCE.com.

Security

To protect your personal data against accidental or unlawful destruction, loss, use, or alteration and against unauthorized disclosure or access, we utilize reasonable physical, technical and organizational security measures. Unfortunately, there is no complete assurance of security in transit or storage of any data that you transmit. Your personal data may be accessed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed by a breach of any of the physical, technical, or organizational assets.

Other Portals and Services

You may connect to other LEDVANCE or affiliated portals or services for specific purposes (e.g., suppliers, e-commerce, and employment application) through the Sites.  These portals or services may have separate registration requirements, terms of use and privacy policies. In the event of any conflict between this policy and a policy for that portal or service, the portal or service policy will govern.

Links to Other Internet Sites

This Privacy Policy only applies to those LEDVANCE Web Sites that include a link to this Privacy Policy. LEDVANCE Web Sites and mobile applications contain links to other Web Sites. These Web Sites may have their own privacy statements or policies. LEDVANCE is not responsible for the privacy practice or the content of other Web Sites.

Questions and Comments

We will respond to reasonable requests to review your personal data and to correct, amend or delete any inaccuracies. If you have any questions or comments about this Privacy Policy, or desire to review and update your personal data, please email Privacy.AME@LEDVANCE.com and send us your question and feedback. We will make changes to the privacy policy from time to time and will post changes to our Privacy Policy on this page. Please check this page regularly to keep up-to-date. Your continued use of the Sites following any change indicates your acceptance of any revisions to the Privacy Policy.
