Why We Collect User Information

Edge may gather personal information to help improve our products and customer service. We may also use the information we collect to notify you about important changes to the Website and new services we offer.  If you would rather not receive this information, just follow the removal instructions provided. If you suspect any wrong usage of your email address, please email us at support@edgecb.com.

What Type of Information We Collect

  • Information You Provide To Us

Personal Information and Demographic Information.  On the Website, we may ask you to provide certain categories of information such as: (1) personally identifiable information, which is information that identifies you personally, such as your first and last name, email address, home address and phone number (“Personal Information”); and (2) demographic information, such as information about your gender (“Demographic Information”).  We may collect this information through various forms and in various places on the Website, including, through “contact us” forms, when you sign up for notifications from us, or when you otherwise interact with the Website.  If we combine Demographic Information with the Personal Information we collect directly from you on the Website, we will treat the combined data as Personal Information under this Privacy Policy.

(b)       Information We Collect and Store as You Access and Use the Site

In addition to any Personal Information or other information that you choose to submit to us via our Website, we and our third-party service providers may use a variety of technologies that automatically (or passively) store or collect certain information whenever you visit or interact with the Site (“Usage Information”).  This Usage Information may be stored or accessed using a variety of technologies that may be downloaded to your personal computer, laptop, tablet or mobile phone (a “Device”) whenever you visit or interact with our Website.  Usage Information may be non‑identifying or may be associated with you.  Whenever we associate Usage Information with your Personal Information, we will treat it as Personal Information.  This Usage Information may include:

  • your IP address or other unique identifier (“Device Identifier”). A Device Identifier is a number that is automatically assigned to your Device used to access the Website, and our computers identify your Device by its Device Identifier;
  • your Device functionality (including browser, operating system, hardware, mobile network information);
  • the URL that referred you to our Website;
  • the areas within our Website that you visit and your activities there, including remembering you and your preferences;
  • your Device location;
  • your Device characteristics; and
  • certain other Device data, including the time of day, among other information.

We may use various developed methods and technologies to store or collect Usage Information (“Tracking Technologies”).  Tracking Technologies may set, change, alter or modify settings or configurations on your Device.  A few of the Tracking Technologies include, without limitation, the following (and subsequent technology and methods later developed):

A “cookie” is a small data file sent to your browser from a web server and stored on your computer. We use cookies to let us know that you are a prior customer or user and to provide certain features to you. Most web browsers allow you to instruct the browser to prevent the use of cookies. However, if you disable this feature, certain aspects of the Website may not function properly. We may have relationships with third parties who may receive non-personal information directly from the cookies placed by our Website on your computer to assist in analyzing our business and customers. Our Website also may use a common web technology called “action tags” (also called single pixel gifts or web beacons) to anonymously track purchase, usage and other web activity information. Action tags (including third party tags) may be used to provide data to third parties for tracking purposes. However, our Web Site does not use action tags to collect or transfer personal information.

How We Use the Information Collected

We may use your Personal Information, Demographic Information or Usage Information for various purposes, including:

  • to send you electronic newsletters or to provide you with special offers or promotional and marketing materials on behalf of us or third parties, including to let you know about new products, services or upcoming events;
  • to improve the Website, marketing endeavors or our service offerings;
  • to customize your experience on the Website or to serve you specific content or ads that are relevant to you;
  • to provide customer support;
  • to contact you with regard to your use of the Website and, in our discretion, changes to the Website and/or Website’s policies;
  • to identify your product and service preferences so that you can be informed of new or additional products, services and promotions;
  • for internal business purposes; and
  • for purposes disclosed at the time you provide your information or as otherwise set forth in this Privacy Policy.

We do not share Personal or Non-Personal Information with third parties, unless:

 (a)      Administrative and Legal Reasons.  We may access, use, preserve, transfer and disclose your information (including Device Identifiers and Personal Information) to third parties: (i) to satisfy any applicable law, regulation, subpoenas, governmental requests or legal process if in our good faith opinion such is required or permitted by law; (ii) to protect and/or defend the Website’s Terms of Use or other policies applicable to the Website, including investigation of potential violations thereof; (iii) to protect the safety, rights, property or security of the Website or any third party; and/or (iv) to detect, prevent or otherwise address fraud, security or technical issues.  Further, we may use IP address or other Device Identifiers, to identify users, and may do so in cooperation with third parties such as copyright owners, internet service providers, wireless service providers and/or law enforcement agencies, including disclosing such information to third parties, all in our discretion, subject to applicable law.  Such disclosures may be carried out without notice to you.

Links and Third Party Content

Edge wants you to be aware that when you click on links that take you to affiliated or third-party web sites, you will be subject to the privacy policies and terms of use for those websites, not ours. We encourage you to read the posted privacy statement and user terms whenever using, and prior to providing any personal information to, any other website.

The Website may contain content that is supplied by a third party, and those third parties may collect Usage Information and your Device Identifier when pages from the Site are served to you.  In addition, when you are on the Website you may be directed to other services that are operated and controlled by third parties that we do not control.  We are not responsible for the data collection and privacy practices employed by any of these third parties or their services and they may be tracking you across multiple sites and may be sharing the results of that tracking with us and/or others.

How to Change Customer Information and Communications Preferences

You are responsible for maintaining the accuracy of the information you submit to us. The Website may allow you to review, correct or update Personal Information, or you may provide updates and changes by contacting us at support@edgecb.com.  We will make good faith efforts to make requested changes in our then active databases as soon as reasonably practicable.  Please note that it is not always possible to completely remove or delete all of your information from our databases and that residual data may remain on backup media or for other reasons.  You may cancel or modify our email marketing communications you receive from us by following the instructions contained within our promotional emails. This will not affect subsequent subscriptions and if your opt-out is limited to certain types of emails the opt-out will be so limited.

Transfer of Information outside of the United States

Our Website is operated in the United States and intended for users located in the United States.  If you are located outside of the United States, please be aware that information we collect, including Personal Information, will be transferred to, and processed, stored and used in the United States.  The data protection laws in the United States may differ from those of the country in which you are located, and your Personal Information may be subject to access requests from governments, courts, or law enforcement in the United States according to laws of the United States.  By using the Website or providing us with any information, you consent to the transfer to, and processing, usage, sharing and storage of your information, including Personal Information, in the United States as set forth in this Privacy Policy.

Underage Users

The Website is a general audience website and we do not knowingly collect any personal information from children younger than the age of thirteen (13) as required by U.S. law.  We will delete any personal information collected that we later determine to be from a user younger than the age of thirteen (13).  If you are a parent or guardian of a child under the age of thirteen (13) and believe he or she has disclosed personal information to us, please contact us at support@edgecb.com.    

Security

We incorporate commercially reasonable safeguards to help protect and secure your Personal Information.  However, no data transmission over the Internet, mobile networks, wireless transmission or electronic storage of information can be guaranteed to be 100% secure.  Please note that we cannot ensure the security of any information you transmit to us, and you use our Website and provide us with your information at your own risk.

Changes to the Privacy Policy

We reserve the right to change this Privacy Policy at any time without notice to you.  Any changes will be effective immediately upon the posting of the revised Privacy Policy.  However, we will not use your Personal Information in a manner materially different than promised at the time it was collected without your consent.  To the extent any provision of this Privacy Policy is found by a competent tribunal to be invalid or unenforceable, such provision shall be severed to the extent necessary for the remainder to be valid and enforceable.

EU Citizens Only:  Our Compliance with the General Data Protection Regulation

We respect and safeguard the data privacy rights of all of our website visitors and customers.  The European Union (“EU”) has enacted the General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”), which requires additional protections for the Personal Information of EU citizens.  The definition of Personal Information for EU citizens is broader than the definition set forth in this Privacy Policy – it can also include IP addresses, responses to surveys, social media identifiers and photographs posted to social media.  EU citizens also enjoy additional protections under the GDPR.  For this reason, we have amended our Privacy Policy as it applies to EU citizens, effective May 25, 2018.  Below we set forth how we are satisfying the GDPR requirements for our EU citizen users.

  1. Rights of EU Citizens under GDPR

Under the GDPR, EU citizens have the right to request the following information from us:

-What Personal Information we hold about you, and for what purpose.

-Access to the Personal Information we hold about you.

-The right to correct Personal Information we hold about you.

-The right to withdraw consent for any use of your Personal Information by us.

-The right to object to any use of your Personal Information by us.

-The right to have your Personal Information deleted from our database.

-The right to ask for Personal Information to be transferred either back to you or to another data controller.

  1. Transparency of Personal Information

We only share your Personal Information with our business partners for the lawful purpose of digital marketing, and we ensure any third parties receiving your Personal Information comply with the requirements of the GDPR.  If you provide us with social media details, we may obtain publicly available information about you from these social media platforms.  We will obtain consent from you for any uses of your Personal Information that fall outside the purpose described in this Privacy Policy.  We do not collect sensitive information about you.

  1. Retention of Personal Information

Your Personal Information will be retained by us for no longer than is necessary to fulfill the purpose for which it was collected, or as if required by law.  When your Personal Information is deleted, it shall be deleted across all of our platforms and no longer shared with our business partners.
