Data protection Policy

Data protection at EtherWAN System

We are delighted that you are interested in our company, products, and services. We would like to provide you with some pertinent information regarding our approach to the protection of your personal data. The safety of our customers' personal data is crucial, particularly in today's Internet-based business models and the corresponding Internet-based economies.

Our staff and service providers are committed to confidentiality of personal data, and to compliance with the provisions of all relevant privacy laws. In this data protection statement, EtherWAN aims to emphasize its dedication to the protection of personal data. This includes, your name, your physical address, your account number, your e-mail address, and other details.


Use and circulation of personal data

Any personal data which you provide us with via our website or among other channels (e.g., your name, your address or your e-mail address), will be used solely for correspondence with you and is exclusively collected, processed, and saved for the purpose intended when submitting the data. In addition, we will use this data to send you occasional offers and to inform you about new products, services, and other items that might be of interest to you. You may revoke your consent regarding the use of your personal data by simply contacting us at info@etherwan.com.tw.

If required, EtherWAN may be required to perform a service or transaction requested by yourself, such as order processing or event and seminar registrations. When passing on personal data to third parties, we shall limit this to the information necessary to provide our respective services. The respective third party must only use this personal data to perform the service required or the transaction needed, which is commissioned in our order. In doing so, the service providers are obliged to adhere to privacy laws.

We shall never share, sell, or otherwise provide your personal data to third parties for marketing purposes.


Data processing on this web page

For security and technical reasons, EtherWAN automatically processes information transmitted by your browser to its system protocols.
This potentially includes:

  • Browser type/version
  • Operating system used
  • Requested URLs (websites) on our systems
  • Referrer URL (the website that referred to our website)
  • Host name and full IP address of the computer accessing the site
  • Data volumes and file types requested

This data will not be consolidated with other data sources or statistically evaluated. Regarding IP addresses: IP addresses are essential for the transmission of websites and data from our servers to your browsers. They are the "addresses" for information you request from our web servers. IP addresses are regarded as personal data and are therefore only used by us to the extent technically required.

The data optionally provided during the registration process is used to contact you personally following registration in the portal as well as for EtherWAN's own marketing purposes. This includes updating our customer master database or providing you with information on our products and services.

You may revoke your consent to us saving your data and using it to send promotional materials at any time by sending a corresponding e-mail to info@etherwan.com.tw. You can also contact this e-mail address should you wish to completely delete your account.


Newsletter

We require a valid e-mail address in order for you to receive a copy of the newsletter. You also have the option of providing additional data about yourself (title, name, company, postal address). Following registration, you will receive an e-mail from us containing a link. This link is used to confirm that you wish to receive the newsletter ("double opt-in"). This is a means of verifying the e-mail address you provided and ensuring that no third parties have ordered the newsletter using your e-mail address.

Our e-mail newsletter may contain links to special EtherWAN websites. In this way, we are able to measure the effectivity of marketing initiatives. Such evaluations are based on anonymous data, meaning that the data cannot be traced to you. In addition, the newsletters may also contain links to third party websites.


Application data on career website

You can revoke your permission to store your data by sending an e-mail with an appropriate reference to info@etherwan.com.tw. We will delete your account after we have received your request.


Cookies

Our website uses cookies in several locations. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer and are saved by your browser. They are used to make our web pages more user-friendly, effective, and secure. As such, they enable the technical implementation of a user session in EtherWAN's online catalog, for example. At the same time, these cookies provide information which enables us to optimize our websites in line with user requirements, e.g., direct link to localized websites by entering the www.etherwan.com address.

The majority of cookies used by us are session cookies. These are automatically deleted once you exit our website. Some cookies are saved for a longer period of time. The maximum storage period of a cookie can be up to one year, for example, when saving your preferred language on our website.

All cookies on our websites contain purely technical information in a pseudonymized or anonymized format, with no personal data contained. If you want to prevent cookies from being saved, in your browser settings select "Do not accept cookies". If cookies are not accepted by the browser, the scope of functions of our website may be severely limited. A number of functions will no longer be available.


Web analyses

Data is collected and further processed on our website in order to analyze and continually optimize our site. Collecting and analyzing the data transmitted enables EtherWAN to illustrate the behavior of visitors to the EtherWAN websites. This illustration particularly highlights the various areas of interest through use of the respective EtherWAN websites and the geographical location of visitors.

The data obtained is processed exclusively for EtherWAN's use and is not passed on to any third parties. Similarly, this data is under no circumstances used for other purposes or resold. If IP addresses were recorded, these are immediately anonymized by means of deleting the last set of numbers following acquisition.


Supplementary notes regarding use and circulation of personal data

EtherWAN may be forced to disclose your data and corresponding details by order of a judicial or regulatory action. We also reserve the right to use your data to assert a claim or to defend against legal claims. In compliance with applicable law, we reserve the right to save and pass on personal data and any other data in order to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding illegal activities, suspected fraud, and violations of EtherWAN's terms and conditions of use.


Secure Internet communication

We make every effort to ensure that your personal data is transmitted and saved utilizing technical and organizational measures, in such a way that it is not accessible to third parties.

As a general rule, the Internet is regarded as an insecure medium. In contrast to a telephone line, for instance, transmission of data on the Internet can be more easily wiretapped, recorded or even modified by unauthorized third parties. To ensure the confidentiality of communications with you, we use AES 256 bit SSL encryption. The encryption used by EtherWAN is regarded as secure, based on the latest technological advancements. Operating systems and browsers from earlier versions also achieve this security level. If necessary, you should update the operating system and browser on your PC to enable use of this high-grade encryption.

When communicating via e-mail in an unencrypted manner, complete data security cannot be guaranteed, so we recommend using the postal service for confidential information.


Updates to this Privacy Policy

If EtherWAN launches new services, alters its Internet procedures or if the Internet and electronic data processing security technology is further developed, this will be updated in this data protection statement. We therefore reserve the right to alter or modify this statement as required. The current version will be published here.


Right to obtain information/changing and deleting personal data

Should you have any questions that have not been addressed by this data protection statement, or if you require more detailed information regarding a specific point, please do not hesitate to contact us.

If you do not agree to your personal data being saved or if this data becomes inaccurate, we will ensure, upon your request, that your data is corrected, blocked or deleted under the statutory provisions. Upon request, we will send you a list of all your personal data that we have stored. To do so, please contact info@etherwan.com.tw.
