We encourage you to read this Policy before using our Site. By using our Site, you agree to the terms and conditions of this Policy. If you do not agree to the terms and conditions of this Policy, please do not use the Site.
2. Processing of data
The party responsible for data processing is EULAN, Stationsplein 23, 4872 XL Etten-Leur, the Netherlands. EULAN ensures that the personal information which is supplied will be handled confidentially and is addressed in accordance with the laws on the protection of personal data.
EULAN gathers two basic types of information through her websites: “Personal Information” ( information from which an individual can be identified) and “Aggregate Information” ( information from which an individual cannot be identified).
When you visit and interact with the Site, EULAN and third parties with whom EULAN has contracted to provide services to EULAN, thus including the EULAN Local Offices, may collect anonymous information from three sources: server log files, cookies, and “pixel tags”.
Server Log Files
Your Internet Protocol (IP) address is an identifying number that is automatically assigned to your computer by your Internet Service Provider (ISP). This number is identified and logged automatically in our server log files whenever you visit the Site, along with the time(s) of your visit(s) and the page(s) that you visited. In principle IP addresses are not linked to information that would identify you, unless you have given your explicit permission for this. We use the IP addresses of all Visitors to calculate Site usage levels, to help diagnose problems with the Site’s servers, and to administer the Site. We may also use IP addresses to communicate or to block access by Visitors who fail to comply with our Terms of Service. Collecting IP addresses is standard practice on the Internet and is carried out automatically by many web sites.
The Site may use so-called “pixel tags,” “web beacons,” “clear GIFs” or similar means (collectively, “Pixel Tags”) to compile aggregate statistics about Site usage and response rates. Pixel Tags allow us to count users who have visited certain pages of the Site, to deliver branded services, and to help determine the effectiveness of promotional or advertising campaigns. When used in HTML-formatted email messages, Pixel Tags can tell the sender whether and when the email has been opened.
You are not ordinarily required to register or provide Personal Information in order to access our Site, though certain functionalities may require registration. We collect Personal Information from you only when you voluntarily provide it to us – for example, in contacting us through the Site, use our (interactive) services, answering surveys and polls, signing up for email updates and announcements concerning our products and special promotions. Personal Information may include your contact information (such as your name, postal address, telephone numbers and/or email address), as well as your payment information, such as credit card number and expiration date (“Payment Information”), which we collect if you wish to purchase any product or service made available through the Site (“Transaction”).
3. Use of personal information
We may use your Personal Information in any of the following way:
We encourage Visitors to contact us with questions and comments. Personal Information may be used in order to respond to your questions and comments.
We may also use your Personal Information for internal business purposes, such as analyzing and managing our businesses. The Personal Information you provide through the Site may be combined with other information you provide to EULAN (via online or offline means), with demographic information and other information that is publicly available, or with other information about you that EULAN may otherwise obtain online or offline.
When you take part in a Transaction through the Site, we may collect Payment Information from you related to such Transaction as well as other Personal Information such as an address so that we can send you the products you have purchased. We may use your Personal Information or Payment Information in order to complete the Transaction and, if applicable, to fulfill your purchase. We may also provide such Payment Information to third parties as necessary to complete your Transaction (for example, to process your credit card).
Special Promotions and Product Information
In addition, EULAN may use your Personal Information to provide you with email updates and announcements concerning our products and special promotions. You may opt-out of receiving these messages from us at any time (see “Contact Us” below). you can unsubscribe by sending an e-mail to HYPERLINK “mailto:email@example.com” firstname.lastname@example.org or in writing to EULAN, Stationsplein 23, 4872 XL Etten-Leur, the Netherlands.
From time to time we may use your Personal Information to email you important information regarding the Site, your Transactions, or changes to our terms, conditions, and policies (“Critical Emails”). Because this information may be critical to your use of the Site, you may not opt-out of receiving these emails.
Third Party Service Providers
We work with third parties who provide services, including web site hosting, credit card processing, data analysis, newsletter services, promotional activities, and other administrative services. We may share your Personal Information, including your Payment Information, with such third parties for the purpose of enabling such third parties to provide such services.
Finally, we may disclose your Personal Information if we believe that we are required to do so: (i) by law; (ii) to comply with legal process or governmental requests; (iii) to enforce our Terms of Service; (iv) to protect our operations; (v) to protect the rights, privacy, safety or property of EULAN, you or others; and (vi) to permit us to pursue available remedies or limit the damages that we may sustain.
We analyze Aggregate Information in order to enhance web site security, track the popularity of certain pages of the Site, the success of our email notifications, traffic levels on the Site and other usage data, all of which helps us to provide content tailored to your interests, improve the Site and related services and to otherwise enhance your experience on the Site. We may share Aggregate Information with Affiliated Entities and other third parties.
We have security measures and tools in place to help protect against the loss, misuse, and alteration of the information under our control. No method of transmitting or storing data is completely secure. As a result, although we strive to protect your Personal Information, we cannot guarantee the security of any information you transmit to us through or in connection with the Site. If you have reason to believe that your interaction with us is no longer secure (for example, if you feel that the security of any account you might have with us has been compromised), you must immediately notify us of the problem by contacting us in accordance with “Contact Us,” below (note that physical mail notification will delay the time it takes for us to respond to the problem).
6. Links to other Internet sites
We reserve the right to transfer any and all information that we collect from users of the Site to a third party in the event of any merger, sale, joint venture, assignment, transfer or other disposition of all or any portion of EULAN’s assets or stock (including without limitation in connection with any bankruptcy or similar proceedings).
