Thank you for entrusting Vode with your lighting project needs. Holding on to your Personal Information is a serious responsibility, and we want you to know how we are handling it.

We only collect the information you choose to give us, and we process it with your consent, or on another legal basis.

We don't sell your Personal Information to third parties; and we only use it as this Privacy Policy describes.

Vode’s Role as a Service Provider to its Customers

Vode designs, manufactures and sells high-end LED lighting fixtures and solutions and provides certain sales, marketing and product support services, which might also include product warranty services or other technical services (collectively, “Services”) to its Customers and Potential Customers located throughout the world.

In the performance of these services, Vode will request information required to perform the applicable Services and will retain such information only for as long as necessary to provide the Services or for compatible purposes, to comply with legal requirements, or to preserve or defend Vode’s legal rights.

When Vode processes Personal Data, Vode does so only for the purpose of providing the Services or pursuant to its Customer’s or Prospective Customer’s instructions. Vode may collect, store, and process anonymized forms of Personal Data, and use that anonymized data for its own analytical and other purposes.

Types of Personal Information Collected

Vode collects Personal Data and Personal Information it receives when an individual uses a web browser or other similar web application or device to visit Vode’s website or agent pricing tool on the Internet. Vode may also combine data and information it collects with data and information received from third parties. Some, but not all, of this data and information may be Personal Data.

Vode may have access to certain non-identifying information of users and third parties, such as browser type and version, operating system, and similar technical and other information made available by the user’s browser, device, or Internet provider. This information is not Personal Data and Vode may collect, store, process, and use this information without limitation. For clarity, IP addresses are treated as Personal Data, as further described below.

Vode may collect, store, and process the following categories of Personal Data: IP address, device identifiers, biometric information, browsing and search history, web beacons, full name, mailing address, email address, mobile phone number, company phone number, fax number, employer, account numbers, job title, social media activities, tax ID numbers, and other personally identifiable information.


Vode uses commercially reasonable physical, technical and organizational measures designed to preserve the security and integrity of Personal Data. For example, Vode’s electronic information systems require user authentication via password or similar means. Vode also employs access restrictions, limiting the scope of employees who have access to Personal Data subject to this Policy. Despite these precautions, no data security safeguards guarantee 100% security all of the time. In the event that any information under Vode’s control is compromised as a result of a breach of security, Vode will take reasonable steps to investigate the situation and where appropriate, notify those individuals whose information may have been compromised, and take other steps in accordance with any applicable laws and regulations.

Legal Disclosures
