2. Personal Information

When you visit our website, we will not collect any Personal Information about you (such as your name, address, telephone number, identification number, billing and shipping information, information about your credit card, or email address) unless that you voluntarily provide it. By using our website, you accept and agree to accept the terms and conditions of our current Privacy Policy as explained in this section of the website. If you do not accept the terms and conditions of this Privacy Policy, please do not supply any personal data to CEDIA through this website.

3. Treatment of personal data

CEDIA provides users with the appropriate technical resources so that, prior to this, they can access this Privacy Policy and can give their consent in order for CEDIA to proceed with the automated processing of their personal data. Regarding the electronic data collection forms of the website, except in the fields where indicated otherwise, the answers to questions about personal data are voluntary, where the lack of response implies a decrease in quality or quantity of the corresponding services, unless otherwise indicated.

When you voluntarily provide us with personal data, you are authorizing us to use such Personal Information in accordance with the terms and conditions of our Privacy Policy.

The user guarantees that the personal data provided to CEDIA is truthful and they are responsible for communicating any modification to it.

CEDIA can save and process your personal data to better understand your needs and the way in which we can improve our products and services, and we can use your personal information to contact you, for example, to personalize the information of the products or services that we offer, to be able to send you marketing or promotional materials or to be able to respond to your comments or requests for information. In any case, CEDIA does not sell, lease, or assign any personal information to you.

Any change in this Privacy Policy will be published on this web page. This allows you to know at any time what information we are saving and how we collect and use that information.

4. Security

CEDIA undertakes to treat your Personal Information with privacy, confidentiality, and security and to protect your personal data by all technical means at our disposal for loss, misuse, unauthorized access, alteration, and destruction.

Companies external to CEDIA that have access to your personal data in relation to the services provided to CEDIA will be obliged to keep the information confidential and will not have permission to use this information for any other purpose than to perform the services they are performing for CEDIA. By providing us with your information, you accept that the aforementioned companies external to CEDIA may have access to your personal data due to the services that these companies provide to CEDIA. In some cases, we will need to transfer your inquiries to companies affiliated with CEDIA. Also in these cases your data will be treated confidentially. CEDIA may disclose personal data if duly required by law, court, or competent authority.

5. Minors

CEDIA asks parents or guardians to inform minors about the responsible and safe use of their personal data when participating in online activities.

CEDIA does not intend to collect Personal Information from people under 18 years of age. When necessary, CEDIA will give specific instructions to minors so that they do not provide personal data in our advertisements or websites.

If the minor has provided us with personal data, the minor's parent or guardian should contact us through our email address in this Privacy Policy if they want us to remove this information from our records. We will use all reasonable efforts within our reach to remove the minor's information from our databases.

6. Non-personal information collected automatically

Our web service automatically collects certain non-personal information about the use of our website that is stored on our servers for exclusively internal purposes, such as facilitating your visit to our website, improving your online experience, or for statistical access purposes.

Examples of this type of non-personal information include the name of your Internet service provider, the type of Internet browser or operating system you use, and the domain name of the website from which you came to our site or announcement.

In case of transfer of data to an external service provider, technical and organizational measures will be applied in order to guarantee an assignment in accordance with the provisions on data protection.

7. The use of social network add-ons

Social network add-ons ("plug-ins") can be incorporated into our web pages. The associated services come respectively from the companies Facebook Inc., Twitter Inc., LinkedIn Corporation (or "suppliers"), among others.

To improve the protection of your data, when you visit our web pages, these add-ons are implemented as social buttons. This form of integration ensures that, by accessing one of the pages containing these add-ons, the user does not automatically connect to the servers of the providers. Only with the activation of the add-ons will the browser create a direct link to the servers of the providers. The content of several add-ons is then transmitted from the respective provider directly to the user's browser and will subsequently appear on the screen.

The add-ons inform the provider of the pages that the user has visited. When browsing our website connected with the username of a certain social network, the provider can view the interests of the user, that is, the information he is visiting. By making use of these options (for example, doing a "like" or writing a comment), this information will also be transmitted to your user account.

In order to avoid any social network relating the visit to our pages with your user account you can disconnect your user account before visiting our websites.
