Data protection provisions

These data protection provisions explain how your data are acquired, used and safeguarded. Your access to our websites and the use made thereof are governed by the terms and conditions set out below. If you visit and consult this website, you agree unreservedly to these data protection provisions. We only disclose personal data to third parties in cases where laws or regulations make this imperative. We comply with the statutory provisions on data protection.

Anonymous data / “cookie” technology

Most of the information we collect from our websites is anonymous information. When you visit our websites, we do not collect any personal Data from you unless specifically, voluntarily and knowingly provided by you. Anonymous information is processed by LEMO to help improve the content of our websites, to customize our websites for our visitors and to learn more about them and how they use our websites. In doing so, LEMO may use tracking technology (“cookies”) to gather anonymous information, such as browser type, operating systems and the date and time of access. “Cookies” by themselves cannot be used to discover the identity of the user. A “cookie” is a small piece of information which is sent to your browser and stored on your computer hard drive.

Intended use of data

LEMO collects and processes Data only for specific and limited purposes which we inform you about when you wish to use certain services. For example, we may collect and use Data to provide you with our products or services, to bill you for products or services you request, to verify your credit, to market products and services we believe might be of interest to you, to process your job application, to receive news releases, or to communicate with you. In addition, we may use your Data to evaluate the effectiveness of and improve our services to our visitors and customers, for our own internal statistics to evaluate customer interests as well as purchasing and other trends among customers and to better determine product development and marketing strategies. By submitting your Data, you expressly consent to such use. LEMO keeps your Data only for as long as is reasonably needed for such purposes and in accordance with any applicable legal or ethical reporting or document retention requirements.

Most of our services do not require any form of registration, thereby allowing you to visit our websites, boutiques and bars without telling us who you are. However, some services may require registration. When you register with us, you may need to complete certain fields (some are required, some are optional) as well as to choose a user name and password. In these situations, if you chose to withhold any Data requested by us, it may not be possible for you to gain access to certain parts of our websites and for us to respond to your queries

Data protection

To safeguard the security and confidentiality within LEMO of the personal data recorded by us online, we use in particular data networks that are equipped with standardized firewalls and password protection. Access to the personal data is reserved for those LEMO staff members who can demonstrate a need to know and who have been trained in the use of sensitive data. Although we cannot guarantee that the data do not reach the wrong recipients, are not lost, misused or modified, we do use our best endeavors to prevent such problems. As the World Wide Web is accessible to the general public, LEMO cannot give any guarantee or accept any liability for such problems or faults.

In all cases, we take all appropriate measures to ensure that personal data cannot be seen by third parties. This does not extend to partners who provide services for you on our behalf. We seek an assurance from our partners that they comply with equivalent data protection provisions.

Data transfer abroad

LEMO is an international group and has databases in different jurisdictions. LEMO may transfer your Data to one of its databases or to companies within the LEMO group or to its partners, who have agreed to keep your Data confidential and secure, outside of your country of residence. If the level of privacy protection in a country does not comply with internationally recognized standards, we will ensure that Data transfers to our databases in that country are equally protected and that a transfer of Data to third parties in such countries does not occur. By submitting your Data, you expressly agree to its possible transfer to other companies within the LEMO group and/or its partners and to this end to its trans-border transmission.
