At Scene Detector, we are committed to the protection of your privacy and personal data. As a subscriber of our email lists, visitor to our Website, or customer of our products and services, you decide what information to give us. Any information that you provide will be held securely and in accordance with the legal regulations of data protection and electronic communication.

The information that we gather falls into two categories:

  • Personally Identifiable Information:Personally identifiable information is any kind of information about a specific user, including name, email address and company. Scene Detector only collects personally identifiable information that you explicitly give us.
  • Non-Personally Identifiable Information:Non-personally identifiable information is any type of information collected in Web logs, including IP address, browser type, or the use of cookies. This information is only viewed in aggregate form and is not routinely tracked to an individual site visitor except in special cases, such as responding to Internet-based attacks.

Our privacy policies provide important disclosures and details regarding our usage of your information.

Policy for Website

As is standard practice on many Websites, Scene Detector logs non-personally identifiable information about site visitors to analyze Website traffic. This information is not routinely tracked to individual site visitors. It is only viewed and analyzed in aggregate form except in special cases, such as responding to Internet-based attacks.
  • IP Address:An IP address is an identifier for a computer or device on a TCP/IP network. Scene Detector logs IP addresses to analyze traffic and improve the content of the Website. Scene Detector does not routinely track IP addresses to individual users. In special cases, such as responding to Internet-based attacks or troubleshooting customer or subscriber problems, logs for Web and other Internet services may be used to track the particular IP addresses that are involved in the incident.
  • Cookie: A cookie is a message given to a Web browser by a Web server. The message is sent back to the server each time the browser requests a page from the server. The main purpose of cookies is to identify users, and, in some cases, to prepare customized Web pages for them. The Scene Detector Website uses cookies to remember user regional preferences. Scene Detector also uses cookies on a permission basis by offering LISTSERV administrators, list owners and subscribers the possibility to store their passwords with the help of a cookie. Scene Detector does not use cookies to track individual users.
  • Web Forms:Web forms are used on the Scene Detector Website as a mechanism for site visitors to contact Scene Detector. The Web forms collect information, including name, email address and company name.

Legal Framework for Electronic Privacy

Further information about email communication and data protection legislation:

1. United States: CAN-SPAM Act of 2003

The CAN-SPAM Act took effect on January 1, 2004. The law, which supersedes and pre-empts provisions of many state laws, is essentially an opt-out law as opposed to the opt-in B2C component in the European Union.


  • Bans false or misleading header information, including the "From" and routing information of the email message
  • Prohibits deceptive subject lines that mislead the recipient about the contents of the email message
  • Requires that email messages contain an opt-out mechanism and that these opt-out requests be honored
  • Requires that commercial email be identified as an advertisement and include the sender's valid physical postal address

2. European Union: Directive 2002/58/CE

Directive 2002/58/CE of the European Parliament and of the Council of 12 July 2002: Directive on Privacy and Electronic Communications.

The directive establishes an opt-in regime, which means that no direct marketing electronic mail can be legally sent to natural persons (B2C) without the express consent of the recipient, unless a pre-existing business or commercial relationship exists. Consent is, however, not mandated for marketing to legal entities (B2B).

The Directive 2002/58/CE:

  • Requires prior consent from the recipient before any email marketing messages can be sent to natural persons (B2C)
  • Bans disguised or misleading sender information, including the "From" and routing information of the email message
  • Requires that email messages contain an opt-out mechanism and that these opt-out requests be honored
  • Requires that email messages contain a valid return address
