INFORMATION WE COLLECT

When you visit our website there are different types of information we may collect:

1.  Aggregated Non-Personal Information. 

We collect certain non-personal information automatically as you navigate and use our website. “Non-Personal Information” means information that does not uniquely identify an individual or groups of individuals. This information includes IP address, browser type, device type, operating system, page views, referring URLs, destination URLs, dates and times of site visits, and other information collected primarily for statistical purposes. This Non-Personal Information is maintained by us in the aggregate, so we do not know the identity of any particular user or groups of users. In order to improve your experience with our Services, and regardless of your browser’s “Do Not Track” setting, we will collect information on:

  • The number of users that use our website;
  • The number of users that access our website via a mobile device;
  • How users navigate through our website;
  • Which Internet Service Providers (ISPs) are being used to access our website; and
  • Which Internet browsers are being used to access our website.

2.  Personal Information You Voluntarily Provide.

We define Personal Information as any information used alone or combined with other information that can uniquely identify, contact, or locate an individual or groups of individuals.

This includes a first name or initial and last name, home or other physical address, including street, city, email address, telephone number, and any other identifier that permits the physical or online contacting of a specific individual; or information concerning a user that the website or online service collects and maintains in personally identifiable form in combination with an identifier previously described.

We do not automatically collect Personal Information through your access or use of our website unless you voluntarily provide it to us. However, you must provide Personal Information to participate in the following programs.

  • Applying for community funding and donation programs, including college scholarships, which we will use your Personal Information to evaluate program eligibility and awards, and contact you about our decision.

At any time, you may opt out of providing us with any such Personal Information by not providing it to us, or by discontinuing your use of our website.

3.  Information Collected by Cookies and Related Technologies.

We use “cookies” and related technologies such as web beacons, JavaScript, pixel tags, locally shared objects, and clear GIFs to collect Non-Personal Information to provide a more convenient experience for you. However, we do not collect your Personal Information to track your online activities on our site or any third-party website or digital services over time. 

What is a Cookie?

A “cookie” is a small bit of record-keeping information websites often stored on a user's computer or mobile device. Our cookies do not collect Personal Information and are typically used to quickly identify your computer or mobile device to “remember” you. You may disable cookies or set your Internet browser to alert you when cookies are being sent to your computer’s browser or mobile device; however, disabling cookies will affect your ability to use certain features on our website.

What Are Web Beacons, Action Tags, Pixel Tags and Clear GIFs?

A web beacon, action tag, JavaScript, pixel tag, or clear GIF is an electronic image allowing us to count users who have visited certain pages on our website. Like cookies, these do not collect Personal Information. 

Use of Cookies and Related Technologies

We may use cookies, web beacons, pixel tags, and other technologies for two purposes:

  • Interest-Based Communications - Our website pages contain pixels allowing us to display interest-based communications on third-party websites and mobile applications, including social media sites such as Facebook or Twitter.  

    We use cookies and web beacons and other technologies that allow us to learn about what interest-based communications you see and interact with. We do not associate your interactions with unaffiliated sites with your identity in providing you with interest-based communications.

Interest-based communications from other advertisers or third parties may also use cookies to measure the effectiveness of their ads and to personalize ad content. We do not have access to or control over cookies or other features advertisers and third party sites may use, and the information practices of these advertisers and third party websites are not covered by our Privacy Notice. Please contact them directly for more information about their privacy practices.

To find out more about these types of communications and ways to opt-out with participating companies who have enabled interest-based communications, consult with the Digital Advertising Alliance, http://www.aboutads.info/choices/.

  • Measuring Interactions - Emails, digital ads displayed on third-party websites, social media messages, and other electronic communications we send to you contain pixel tags enabling us to track your usage of an electronic communication, including whether you opened the communication or followed a  link  in such communication (if any).

TARGETED COMMUNICATIONS ON SOCIAL MEDIA SITES

We use social media sites like Facebook and Twitter to communicate with you about our programs and services. You can follow us on these social media sites to receive regular updates. These social media sites also allow us to target ads to you using the personal information they maintain about you, even if you do not specifically follow us on their site. We may target ads to you using information such as cookies, pixels, zip codes, and interests. We may also target communications to you using personal information we maintain, such as your email address or phone number.

You will only see our targeted ads if you agreed to receive this type of communication through your social media provider. You may disable some or all of the advertising targeted to you on a social media site by adjusting your privacy settings on their site.

USE OF SOCIAL MEDIA AND OTHER PUBLIC FORUMS

Information you post to a public forum, such as a blog, forum, chat room, or wiki, is available to all users accessing these sites. Any information you share is available to any user and may be read, collected, or used by other people for any purpose, including sending you unsolicited information.

We are not responsible for any information you provide to other individuals or post on these websites. To protect your information from potential misuse, we recommend never sharing your Personal Information with anyone who you do not trust.

LINKED WEBSITES AND ONLINE WEB SERVICES

Our website contains links to other websites, including social media sites, and icons to launch online web services. These websites may place a cookie on your computer, enabling that site to recognize users who may have visited our site. Your use of any third party site or web service may result in the collection or sharing of information about you, depending on the third party’s site or web service. We do not control those third party sites or web services, or their privacy practices, which may differ from our practices. We also do not endorse or make any representations about third party sites or web services.

The Non-Personal and Personal Information that you provide or that is collected from you by such third parties is not covered by this Notice. We encourage you to review the privacy notices and settings on third party sites and services that you interact with to make sure you understand how they use your information.

CALIFORNIA “DO NOT TRACK” DISCLOSURES

Most browsers are programed to accept cookies or other similar technology to collect Non-Personal Information. You may set your browser to notify you when you receive a cookie, providing you the opportunity to accept or decline it. Declining a cookie, or similar technology, will affect your ability to use certain features on our website. You may stop accepting cookies from a particular website, or by changing your browser’s settings, which are usually found in the ‘options’ or ‘preferences’ menu. You may also visit AboutCookies.org for instructions, by browser type, regarding how to control cookies settings within your browser.

We do not collect Personal Information about your browsing habits over time and across third-party websites or online services. However, our website contains links and icons to other websites, including social media sites, and we do not control their collection or sharing of information about you. Refer to the above Linked Websites and Online Web Services section for more information.

DISCLOSURE OF INFORMATION TO THIRD PARTIES

Except as outlined above, we do not disclose your Personal Information to third parties without your prior written consent, except in the following circumstances:

  • We are required by law, such as to comply with a warrant, subpoena, or similar legal process;
  • We believe in good faith disclosure is necessary to protect our rights, protect your safety or the safety of others, investigate fraud, or respond to the request of a governmental agency;
  • Ordered by state or federal governmental agencies with jurisdiction over us, when legally entitled to such information; or
  • The third parties we contract with to provide company-related services such as recruiting job applicants, scholarship or award opportunities, registering for Investor Relations webcasts, signing up for certain news or events, or sending or responding to an email on our behalf. These contracted third parties do not use or disclose the information for any purpose not consistent with this Privacy Notice.

HOW YOU CAN MANAGE AND CONTROL YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION

We offer certain choices about how we communicate with you and what Personal Information we obtain. You may limit, or opt-out of, the information you provide to us.

  • If you have signed up to receive emails from us, you may opt out at any time by clicking on the link at the bottom of the email in order to unsubscribe from future mailings or by updating your communication preferences within the Investor Relations page.
  • To learn more about ways to limit, or opt-out of, the collection and sharing of your information use one of the contact methods listed in the below Contact Us section.

 

EMAIL COMMUNICATION

Email communication gives us another convenient method to communicate with the public, including responding to your inquiries. By sending us an email, we will consider your email as consent for us to reply to you via email.

You will receive emails from us (or our authorized third party fulfilling agent) if you have signed up to receive email notifications for services such as job openings, scholarship or award opportunities, certain news or events, or if you have requested certain information. You can opt-out of receiving these emails by disabling your saved job search, clicking on the link at the bottom of the email in order to unsubscribe from future mailings, or by contacting us in the manner described in the Contact Us section.  

We do not control the information you provide to us from your email account. Email messages sent directly from your email account are not confidential and secure. We are not liable for any use, disclosure, or modification of such messages. Please do not submit any Personal Information or other information you deem confidential or sensitive via email.

CHILDREN

Although our website provides educational information on safety issues and scholarship opportunities, we do not solicit any information from or market to children under the age of 13. If you are a parent or legal guardian who discovers your child provided us with information without your consent, contact us. If you discover we collected any Personal Information from a child under the age of 13, we will immediately remove that information.

RETENTION OF PERSONAL INFORMATION

We retain your Personal Information for as long as reasonably necessary to fulfill the transactions you have requested, or for legitimate business purposes, such as complying with our legal obligations, in accordance with applicable law, including United States’ federal, state, and local laws. As retention periods vary for different types of Personal Information, based on business purpose, actual retention periods vary. For example, Personal Information provided in an application for community funding and donation programs has a different retention period than a request for company information.

SECURITY SAFEGUARDS

We share your concerns regarding the safeguarding of your Personal Information. Edison complies with applicable privacy and security laws and generally-accepted information security standards to ensure a level of security, integrity, and privacy, appropriate to the risk of your Personal Information in our possession. The Personal Information provided to or collected by us through your use of our website is stored in operating environments not available to the public. 

JURISDICTIONAL ISSUES

This website is controlled and operated by us from the State of California, in the United States, and operation of this website is not intended to subject us to the laws or jurisdiction of any other states, country or territory. Your use of our website will indicate your acknowledgement of the terms in this Notice.

We may change the terms in this Notice. Any changes made to the Notice will be posted on our website as soon as reasonably possible. We recommend you periodically review this Notice to find out if any changes have been made since your last visit to our website.
