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.
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.
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.
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,
To respond to your inquiry or request, to process your order, or to provide you with access to specific information or offers;
To verify your identity, as well as to support our existing or potential customer relationship with you;
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;
Where it is necessary to carry out your instructions
To prepare, negotiate or perform a contract with you;
As reasonably necessary to provide our features and functionality to you;
To create and administer your account;
To verify your identity in connection with the other purposes listed here;
To communicate with you regarding employment;
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;
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.
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.
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.
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.
