This site contains many links to other sites. The information exchanged via these other sites does not form part of this privacy policy.  We invite you therefore to inform yourself about the privacy policies linked to any of the websites you visit.

Automatically-exchanged data

When you access this site, your computer and our server automatically exchange data. This exchange allows the server to send you a file compatible with the computer equipment you use. The data exchanged are as follows:

  • the identification of your Internet service provider;
  • your IP address (numeric address which identifies a computer connected to the Internet network, for example:;
  • the type of browser (for example: Firefox, Explorer) and operating system (for example: Windows, Mac OS) that you are using
    the pages you visit;
  • the date and time you access these pages;
  • the referral site address if you access this site from another website.

Most information automatically transmitted between computers does not know your identity. They are collected only because of the technological requirements inherent in browsing the Internet.

SafeEMF Ltd. keeps this data for statistical purposes. They are used to count the number of visitors, the most frequented pages, the technology used by visitors, the addresses of referring websites, and the country of origin of visitors.

If you use a computer in a public place or share a computer with other users, be sure to erase the traces of your browsing stored in the history before ending each session.

Using Google Analytics

SafeEMF uses Google Analytics, a web-based audience measurement tool.

By using cookies, Google Analytics collects information about your browsing on this site, which is stored on servers located in the United States. Google may disclose this information to third parties in the event of a legal obligation or where such third parties process the data on their behalf.

The information collected by the tool includes the pages you visit, the date, time, duration and frequency of your visits and the links you click. The type of operating system on your computer and the language of your computer, the name of your Internet service provider, and your geographic location (the region) are also part of the information collected. Your IP address is also collected, but it is anonymous (truncated) to ensure the confidentiality of your information. The anonymity of an IP address makes it possible to prevent the identity of a user from being known by this means.

Google uses the collected information only to produce statistics and reports about your navigation on this site in order to improve Safe EMF Ltd.’s electronic services. Google assures us that it will not in any way relate the information collected on this site with any other data that it keeps.
