“Cookies” and website logging
Some of our websites will send a “cookie” a small text file, to your computer. This allows us to recognize your computer the next time you visit, without bothering you with another request to register. And, if you use an online “shopping cart,” cookies allow us to keep track of the products you purchase. If you do not wish to receive cookies, please refer to the “Help” file of your Internet Browser to learn how to either block all cookies or receive a warning before a cookie is stored. To learn more about cookies we encourage you to visit http://cookiecentral.com/c_concept.htm. If you visit our Web sites to browse, read, or download information, we collect and store some “visitor information” from you, such as the name of the domain and host from which you access the Internet, the Internet Protocol (IP) address of the computer you are using, the date and time you access our Web site, and the Internet address of the website from which you linked directly to our Web site. We use this information to measure the traffic on our Web Sites and to help us make our Web Sites more useful.
Safeguarding the information you share with us and data retention
We recognize our responsibility to protect the information you entrust to us. Cardiac Science uses a variety of technical and organizational security measures to protect your information, including secure servers, firewalls, and encryption of financial data (according to GDPR, Art.32). Despite these measures, the confidentiality of any communication or material transmitted to or from us via this site by Internet or e-mail cannot be guaranteed. Our websites also may make chat rooms, forums, message boards and/or newsgroups available to you. Please remember that any personally identifiable information you provide in these areas is also available to other users, and you should exercise caution before deciding to disclose it. Personal data will be stored for times compatible with the purpose of collection and any related legal obligations.
Special information for parents
While Cardiac Science websites are generally not targeted at children under the age of thirteen, it is our policy to comply with the law when it requires that a parent’s or guardian’s permission is secured before knowingly collecting, using, or disclosing personal information from children under the age of fourteen. We strongly recommend that parents take an active role in supervising the online activity of their children.
