Privacy Policy

Effective as of June 21, 2017

We fight to make sure companies respect your privacy, so we want you to know how we treat yours when you visit our website.


I. First things first.


If you’re visiting our website, you likely care about privacy and already know that the Internet, generally speaking, is not always a private place. When you visit websites, use search engines, or conduct business on the Internet, many different parties gather information about your online behavior by tracking your searches, visits, and transactions, and then by matching that data with other information about you.

With that in mind, our goal is to respect your privacy, including when you visit our site. So, for starters, we only collect very limited information about you when you visit edelson.com. We do this in order to contact you (when you ask us to) and to provide you with a better experience while you use our site. How and when we do so is explained below.


II. Our Collection and Use of Information About You.


Passively Collected Information

Like most websites, we automatically receive and record information in our server logged from your browser when you visit edelson.com. The information that we collect with these automated methods include your IP address, cookie information, browser type, system type, and referring URL. If you sign up for our email newsletter, we may also use an embedded image to track whether you open our email.

We use this type of information to measure and improve the performance of our site and our newsletters. On occasion we may also access this type of information to investigate or maintain the stability and security of our site.

Voluntarily Submitted Information

Certain pages on our site invite you to share personally identifying information in order for us to contact you, such as your name, email address, or telephone number.


How We Work With Third­Party Vendors


We work with a limited group of vendors who help us process data, facilitate the operation of edelson.com and deliver messages to you on other platforms. For example, outside vendors (like WordPress or Google) may help us analyze traffic on our site or send out periodic email updates (like Mailchimp or Constant Contact).


Our Use of Cookies


We use cookies to improve website performance and to collect analytic data. By “cookies” we mean small text files placed on to your computer by websites you visit. “Cookies” may also refer to local storage, which is a mechanism similar to cookies where the information is stored within your web browser. In some instances we place these cookies ourselves. In other instances we allow outside service providers to place these cookies, but only if those providers agree to the terms described above under “How We Work with Third-Party Vendors.” We use cookies as follows:

Website Performance

Website performance cookies allow us to make the website easier and more pleasant to use, including saving you time when filling out a form by populating it with information you provided in previous visits.

Analytics

We use analytics tools that place cookies, in order to give us a better understanding of how people engage with our website. That in turn allows us to gauge the current performance of website features, and to develop better content. Analytics cookies provide us with information like:

  • How many individual visitors we have;

  • How many visitors are new or returning;

  • How often visitors come to the website;

  • What content they’ve visited; and

  • How visitors interact with particular pages or content.


IV. How Certain Third Parties May Place Cookies and Gather Information About You.


Our site is connected in a variety of ways to content residing on other platforms. We provide links to content on social media platforms such as Facebook and Twitter, and to content on other sites, such as articles posted on the sites of news organizations. Our site may also features embedded media, such as videos, that are hosted on other platforms (such as YouTube) but viewable directly through the buttons we provide. When you click on links or buttons for any of these types of external content, the providers of that content may place their own cookies on your computer, access existing cookies that were set when you previously visited other websites, or otherwise gather information about you as you access their content.

To learn about how those content hosts treat the data they collect through cookies and otherwise, see their respective online privacy policies and other posted guidance. We do not vouch for those privacy policies either. You should read them and make your own decisions about them.


V. Security Measures and Data Transmission.


We use reasonable measures to protect against unauthorized access to any information you may provide us. However, no website can fully eliminate security risks. Third parties may circumvent our security measures to unlawfully intercept or access transmissions or private communications.


VI. Procedure When We Update This Policy.


Our privacy policy may change from time to time. We will post privacy policy changes on this page and, if the changes are significant, we will provide a more prominent notice on our website. We will also keep prior versions of the Privacy Policy available for your review in this section.


VII. Your California Privacy Rights.


A business subject to California Civil Code section 1798.83 is required to disclose to its California customers, upon request, the identity of any third parties to whom the business has disclosed personal information within the previous calendar year, along with the type of personal information disclosed, for the third parties’ direct marketing purposes.

We will not disclose any personal information about you to any third parties for any marketing purposes whatsoever. Nonetheless, if you are a California resident and would like to make such a request, please email us at privacy@edelson.com and we’ll follow up.
