Who we are

Editions SSA is the publishing arm of Solid State Authentics Limited, a VAT registered company incorporated in England and Wales; Company No. 6493083, VAT Registration No. 985817264. Our website address is: https://www.editions-ssa.com.


Personal data we collect, and why we collect it:


Customer data

We retain customer information as a means of maintaining the integrity of the editions we publish. Customer’s names, email addresses, postal addresses plus any instructions, additional contact or banking information submitted via our transaction partners* at the time of purchase are retained indefinitely, as agreed by the customer by the acceptance of the Editions SSA Terms and Conditions. This information will not be disclosed to any third party – unless we are obliged to release such information to our legal representatives, or the authorities, in order to initiate investigation or legal action in the case of copyright infringement, or fraudulent acquisition of goods (for example). All such data is stored in a GDPR-compliant environment.

*As an additional layer of protection for both customers and our business, Editions SSA trades online solely via PayPal Inc. at present. PayPal’s Privacy Statement can be read here, and their Terms and Conditions here. Should this situation change at any point in the future, such changes will be notified here and in the Edition SSA Terms and Conditions.


Contact form data

Visitor submitted information (excepting Customer Data – see above, and the Editions SSA Terms & Conditions), as entered on our contact form(s), is retained indefinitely, or until we receive a written request from the registrant for its removal. This information is stored in a GDPR-compliant environment and is not shared with any third party. Should we at any time in the future elect to outsource electronic marketing services (for example), existing registrants will be contacted using the information we hold and given the opportunity to opt-out prior to any such action.


Comments

When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to aid spam detection.


Media

If visitors upload images to this website, they should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.


Cookies

If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.

If you have an account and you log in to this site, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.

When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.

If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie includes no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after 1 day.


Embedded Content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.


Analytics

We do not supply personal information to aggregators of analytical data, for any purpose. Should we at any time in the future elect to alter this policy, existing registrants will be contacted using the information we hold and given the opportunity to opt-out prior to any such action.


Who we share your data with

We do not share visitor/client information, for any purpose. Should we at any time in the future elect to alter this policy, existing customers/registrants will be contacted using the information we hold and given the opportunity to opt-out prior to any such action.


How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognise and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

For visitors who register on our website, we also store the personal information provided in your user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their own personal information at any time (with the exception of their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.


What rights you have over your data

If you are a customer of Editions SSA, have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. However, this does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.


Where we send your data

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service. Otherwise, we do not share visitor/customer information with any third party.


How we protect your data

All visitor/customer information is stored in a GDPR-compliant environment. We do not, and will not share visitor/customer information with any third party. Should we at any time in the future elect to alter this policy, existing customers/registrants will be contacted using the information we hold and given the opportunity to opt-out prior to any such action.
