Your Rights to Your Information

California consumers have the right to request that the Company disclose to them certain information about our collection and sharing of your non-employment personal information, over the past 12 months, by submitting an online request or by calling us at (800) 655-4555. You may submit up to two requests during a rolling 12-month period. See the Personal Information Request Notice link, in our website’s footer, for categories of information we may collect and share, for business purposes, with third parties.

Information We Collect

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

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 user or groups of users.

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, groups of individuals, or households.

This includes a first name or initial and last name, home or business mailing, physical, or email address, telephone number, financial information, user names, passwords, security question answers, or any other identifier that identifies, relates to, describes, is capable of being associated with, or could be reasonably linked, directly or indirectly, with a consumer or household. See the Personal Information Request Notice for categories of information we may collect and share, for business purposes, with third parties.

While we do not automatically collect Personal Information through your access or use of our website, unless you voluntarily provide it to us, 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.
  • Signing up for certain services on our website, such as events, Investor Relations webcasts, email alerts, career-related news, or opportunities, or other requests for information, which will be used to fulfill your request.
  • Submitting job applicant information for positions, or if chosen as a successful job candidate, providing additional information about yourself for us to perform an employment background check and sign up for payroll direct deposit. Click here for more information regarding how information is collected and used when using our Careers page.

At any time, you may opt out of providing us with Personal Information by discontinuing your use of our website.

Use of Cookies and Related Technologies

We use “cookies” and related technology, 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. While you are using our Websites, we will record your website interactions and over time collect your browsing habits to identify improvement opportunities. However, we do not track your online activities from any third-party website or digital services.

  • Cookies are 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
  • Web beacons, JavaScript, pixel tags, locally shared objects, and clear GIFs are electronic images allowing us to count users who have visited certain pages on our Services. Like cookies, these do not collect Personal Information.

We use cookies and related technologies for two purposes:

  1. 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. This allows us to provide you with more useful and relevant communications. 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 Website Privacy Notice. Please contact them directly for more information about their privacy practices.

    To discover more about these communications and ways to opt-out with participating companies who have enabled interest-based communications, consult with the Digital Advertising Alliance.

  2. 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).

Email Communications

Email communication gives us another convenient method to communicate with our customers, 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 of certain news or events, or if you have requested certain information; however, in some cases, you have the option to stop receiving emails from us.

We do not control the information you provide to us via email. Email messages in transit are not confidential and are not 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.

Targeted Communications on Social Media Sites

We use social media sites like Facebook and Twitter to communicate with you about our programs, services and career-related news and opportunities. 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 or career-related news 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 and career-related news if you agreed to receive this type of communication through your social media provider. You may disable some or all 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 Services contain links to other websites, including social media sites, and icons to launch online web services. These websites may place a cookie on your computer or mobile device, 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 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.

You may set your browser to notify you when you receive a cookie, providing you the opportunity to accept or decline it.

  • To provide you with support and to respond to your inquiries, including to investigate and address your concerns and monitor and improve our responses.
  • The third parties we contract with to provide business-related services such as needing access to such Personal Information, but only (a) to the extent necessary to render authorized, related services; and (b) provided they have agreed in writing to adhere to certain confidentiality and security obligations consistent with the terms of this Privacy Notice.

  • As ordered by state or federal governmental agencies with jurisdiction over us, when legally entitled to such information.
  • As required by law, such as to comply with a warrant, subpoena, or similar legal process.

The Company will not collect additional categories of Personal Information or use the Personal Information we collected for materially different, unrelated, or incompatible purposes without providing you 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 Investor Relations or career-related 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. Additionally, for Investor Relations communications only, you may also update 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.

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, under 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 or submitting an employment application.

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.

Your use of our Services will indicate your acceptance and consent to the terms in this Notice.
