WHY WE COLLECT PERSONAL INFORMATION
We collect your personal information in order to respond to your inquiries, to send you information about our products and services, and because it helps us deliver a superior website experience.
WHAT INFORMATION WE COLLECT AND HOW WE MAY USE IT
We ask for your personal information when you submit a contact request to us via our Contact page. Our submission form requires personally identifiable information, including without limitation your name and email address, and you may also include personally identifiable information in the subject or body of your message to us.
As described below under “Cookies, Tracking and Other Technologies,” we also collect certain non-personally identifiable information regarding visitor activities on our website.
We may use your personal information to respond to your requests and send you communications, as well as for auditing, research, and analysis to improve our website and the products we offer.
WHEN WE DISCLOSE YOUR INFORMATION
To help us provide superior products and service, your personal information may be shared with our owners, subsidiaries and other affiliates; our employees, agents and representatives; and actual and prospective assignees and licensees of the website, its content, or any portion thereof, including your submissions and personal information. In addition, the personal and other information you provide to Edge is considered our asset and may be included among transferred assets if we, the website, or any parent company is acquired by a third party.
There are also times when Edge makes certain personal information about you available to companies or individuals to provide information, products and services to you on our behalf. These companies may help us process information, manage and enhance customer data, provide customer service, assess your interest in our products and services, or conduct customer research or satisfaction surveys. We call them our “Service Providers.” We may share personally identifiable information with Service Providers solely as appropriate for them to perform their functions, but we prohibit them from using such information for any other purpose unless we inform you otherwise at the time of collection.
At times we may be required by law, litigation, arbitration or similar legal process to disclose your personal information. We may also disclose information about you if you consent to it or if we determine that disclosure is necessary for national security, law enforcement, personal safety, or other issues of public importance.
HOW WE PROTECT YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
Edge takes administrative, technical, and physical precautions to safeguard your personal information against loss, theft, and misuse, as well as unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, and destruction. We use reasonable and customary measures to safeguard the security of your personal information. Nonetheless, transmissions made on or through the Internet and information stored by us are vulnerable to attack and cannot be guaranteed to be secure. You hereby acknowledge that we are not responsible for any intercepted information sent via the Internet or data loss caused by “hacks,” malicious attacks or other breaches caused by third parties, and you hereby release us from any and all claims arising out of or related to the use of information obtained by means of an unauthorized interception or breach.
COOKIES, TRACKING AND OTHER TECHNOLOGIES
As is true of most websites, we gather certain information automatically and store it in log files. This information includes Internet Protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, Internet Service Provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, and clickstream data. We use this information, which does not identify individual users, to analyze trends, to administer the site, to track users’ movements around the site and to gather demographic information about our user base as a whole. Edge will not use this type of collected information to market directly to that person. We may share aggregated anonymous information with third parties to assist in analyzing, operating, maintaining, and improving the website and placing advertising on it.
We also may use third-party website analytics tools (such as Google Analytics) that collect information about visitor traffic on our website. The information we may collect by these tools is similar to that collected by the technologies described above and includes: information about the devices our visitors use to access the Internet (such as the IP address and the device, browser and operating system type); URLs that refer visitors to the website; dates and times of visits to the website; information on actions taken on the website (such as page views and site navigation patterns); a general geographic location (such as country and city) from which a visitor accesses our website; and search terms that visitors use to reach the website.
The kind of information described above in this section is sometimes called “clickstream data.”
In some of the email messages from us, we may use a “click-through URL” linked to content on Edge website. When if you click one of these URLs, they pass through our web server before arriving at the destination web page. We may track this click-through data to help us determine interest in particular topics and measure the effectiveness of email communications. If you prefer not to be tracked, simply avoid clicking text or graphic links in the email.
HOW WE RESPOND TO DO NOT TRACK (DNT) SIGNALS
The California Business & Professions Code Section 22575(b) (as amended effective January 1, 2014) provides that California residents are entitled to know how the website responds to “Do Not Track” browser settings. The website does not react to or honor any “do not track” technologies that you may choose to utilize because uniform technological and commercial standards have not yet been developed.
Our website may link to the sites of third parties. Edge is not responsible for their privacy practices. We encourage you to learn about the privacy policies of those companies, which may collect personally identifiable information about you.
CHILDREN AND MINORS
Our website is intended for use by adults only and we do not knowingly collect or use any personal information from minors under the age of 18. If we collect personal information from someone we learn to be under 18 years of age, such personal information shall immediately be deleted. If you are a parent or guardian of a child under 18 years of age and you believe your child has provided us with personal information, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
USERS OUTSIDE THE UNITED STATES
UPDATING OR REMOVING YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
Please contact us at any time to update or remove your personal information. We may reject requests that are unreasonably repetitive, require disproportionate technical effort or expense (for example, developing a new system or fundamentally changing an existing practice), risk the privacy of others, or would be extremely impractical (for instance, requests concerning information residing on backup systems). Please be aware that a removal request does not ensure complete or comprehensive removal of the content or information you have provided and that there may be circumstances in which the law does not allow removal even if requested.
