LAST REVIEWED AND UPDATED: JANUARY 12, 2022
This week the Austrian Data Protection Authority found Google Analytics to be in breach of EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). While Vervantis seeks to understand the relevance of this case, we ask, out of an abundance of caution, that if you are a visitor from the European Union, you do not accept cookies from within our web pages at this time, thank you.
Vervantis Inc. is a US Corporation and complies with all state legislation on consumer privacy and data protection.
The below relates to members of the public visiting the Vervantis website. More detailed Policy documents are provided to our Clients whom we share data with.
Visitors to this website will be asked to accept a Cookie, which we use for the intended functionality of the Webpage (such as logging data about device hardware and visitor’s interaction with the Website – see more at the third-party website www.allaboutcookies.org)
Vervantis does not share or sell data and is committed to the protection of both its own and its customer’s data. This commitment has led to a significant investment in obtaining and maintaining data security compliance (SOC 2), ensuring our systems, staff, and protocols are tested and updated regularly. Vervantis has a dedicated internal team made up of cross-functional stakeholders overseeing our ongoing compliance efforts, which include conforming to the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) which came into force on January 1, 2020.
As each state reviews and legislates on consumer data protection, Vervantis internal team will ensure our organization is in compliance and our customers are protected.
Vervantis use Google Analytics to understand how visitors interact with our Website. The cookies collect information about:
- the number of visitors to our Website,
- the pages or content with the most traffic,
- approximately where in the world you are visiting the Website from.
We have clients around the world, so we are really interested in how you arrived at our Website – through a direct search, link on a third-party website or a link in one of our emails. To understand this further we sometimes work with social media and advertising partners like Facebook, Google or Linkedin, who drop cookies on your device when you visit our Website in order for them to collate and share with us that you have looked at our Website/expressed an interest in our products (known as “Third-party cookies”). This means that when you later visit these third-party websites or visit a website which has agreed to host adverts for our online advertising platform, the adverts displayed to you are more tailored to your apparent interests. If you click on these adverts, they will re-direct you back to our Website.
We use this information to help improve the Website, for instance by prioritizing updates of the most read content or the most used functionality. If we are working on updates to our Website, we occasionally display original content to some visitors and updated content to others to assess which version is giving the best user experience. When we do this, the cookie tells us which version of the page you were served.
If you have a specific question about the above, please send it to us.
