Privacy policy

Our principles

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.

Marketing Tools

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.

Payment Provider

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! You can find Stripe’s privacy policy here: https://stripe.com/ch/privacy

Hosting backend

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. You can find the privacy policy of the Google Cloud Platform here: https://cloud.google.com/terms/

Sophos

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.

Google Fonts

On our website we use Google Fonts. This service is an important component to keep the quality of our website high. All Google fonts are automatically optimized for the web. This saves data volume and is a great advantage especially for use with mobile devices. When you visit our website, files (CSS, fonts) are requested through the Google domains fonts.googleapis.com and fonts.gstatic.com. In this way, Google learns that our website was visited via your IP address. In addition, with each Google Font request, information such as language settings, IP address, browser version, browser screen resolution, and browser name is also automatically transmitted to Google servers. You can also find out what data is generally collected by Google and what this data is used for at https://www.google.com/intl/de/policies/privacy/.

Hosting frontend

The Avanet website, i.e. everything that runs at https://avanet.com, is hosted on servers of cyon GmbH based in Basel (Switzerland). You can find cyon’s privacy policy here: https://www.cyon.ch/legal/privacy

Newsletter data

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). You can find mailgun’s privacy policy here: https://www.mailgun.com/privacy-policy
