This Statement of Privacy applies to the EDA website and governs data collection and usage. By using the EDA website, you consent to the data practices described in this statement.
Collection of your Personal Information
EDA collects personally identifiable information, such as your e-mail address, name, home or work address or telephone number. EDA also collects anonymous demographic information, which is not unique to you, such as your ZIP code, age, gender, preferences, interests and favorites.
There is also information about your computer hardware and software that is automatically collected by EDA. This information can include: your IP address, browser type, domain names, access times and referring Website addresses. This information is used by EDA for the operation of the service, to maintain quality of the service, and to provide general statistics regarding use of the EDA Website.
Please keep in mind that if you directly disclose personally identifiable information or personally sensitive data through EDA’s public message boards, this information may be collected and used by others.
EDA encourages you to review the privacy statements of Websites you choose to link to from EDA so that you can understand how those Websites collect, use and share your information. EDA is not responsible for the privacy statements or other content on outside websites.
Use of your Personal Information
EDA collects and uses your personal information to operate the EDA Website and deliver the services you have requested. EDA also uses your personally identifiable information to inform you of other products or services available from EDA and its affiliates. EDA may also contact you via surveys to conduct research about your opinion of current services or of potential new services that may be offered.
EDA may from time to time, and at its sole discretion, provide its Member lists to third parties who offer products and services, which may be of interest to our members. EDA may also, from time to time, contact you on behalf of external business partners about a particular offering that may be of interest to you. In those cases, your unique personally identifiable information (e-mail, name, address, telephone number) is not transferred to the third party. In addition, EDA may share data with trusted partners to help us perform statistical analysis, send you email or postal mail, provide customer support, or arrange for deliveries. All such third parties are prohibited from using your personal information except to provide these services to EDA, and they are required to maintain the confidentiality of your information.
EDA does not use or disclose sensitive personal information, such as race, religion, or political affiliations, without your explicit consent.
EDA keeps track of the pages our customers visit within EDA’s website, in order to determine what EDA services are the most popular. This data is used to deliver customized content and advertising within EDA to customers whose behavior indicates that they are interested in a particular subject area.
EDA Websites will disclose your personal information if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to: (a) conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on EDA or the site; (b) protect and defend the rights or property of EDA; and, (c) act under exigent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of EDA, or the public.
The EDA Website uses “cookies” to help you personalize your online experience. A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by a Web page server. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you, and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you.
One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. The purpose of a cookie is to tell the Web server that you have returned to a specific page. For example, if you personalize EDA pages, or register with EDA site or services, a cookie helps EDA to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of recording your personal information, such as billing addresses, shipping addresses, and so on. When you return to the same EDA Website, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the EDA features that you customized.
You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most Web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of the EDA website.
Security of your Personal Information
EDA secures your personal information from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. EDA secures the personally identifiable information you provide on computer servers in a controlled, secure environment, protected from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. When personal information (such as a credit card number) is transmitted to other websites, it is protected through the use of encryption.
Changes to this Statement
EDA will occasionally update this Statement of Privacy to reflect company and member feedback. EDA encourages you to periodically review this Statement to be informed of how EDA is protecting your information.
EDA welcomes your comments regarding this Statement of Privacy. If you believe that EDA has not adhered to this Statement, please contact EDA at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will use commercially reasonable efforts to promptly determine and remedy the problem.
