We obtain and store only necessary data and do not ask you for information that is not used to improve our service or optimize our marketing. We only share your customer data with third parties in clearly defined exceptions.
We decided in September 2020 to stop using web analytics services on the Avanet website. Previously, we used Google Analytics to measure traffic to our website. This data has helped us to optimize and further develop the website based on the visitors’ behavior. At this time, we do not use any tracking and rely on voluntary feedback from our customers. This allows us to continue to improve the shopping experience on our website even without tracking.
As a payment option we offer among others the credit card. For this purpose, we use the payment provider Stripe, headquartered in San Francisco (USA). Your mailing address, email address and credit card information are stored encrypted in their database. For security reasons, we will never store any credit card information in our database!
The database of our store is hosted on the Google Cloud platform. So as soon as you create an account, all the data you need to provide, except your credit card information, is stored in Google Firestore.
Once you purchase a Sophos product through our website, we need to register it with Sophos itself. For this purpose, we need to know your name, company name, address and e-mail address.
The Avanet website, i.e. everything that runs at https://avanet.com, is hosted on servers of cyon GmbH based in Basel (Switzerland).
If you have an Avanet account, you will receive automated emails from us from time to time. In order to be able to send such e-mails, we use the e-mail services mailgun and Mandrill (belongs to MailChimp).
