When you visit ECI’s website, we will not collect any personally identifiable information about you (such as name, address, telephone number or e-mail address) unless you provide it to us voluntarily. Additionally, some areas of our website may invite visitors to submit name, address, telephone number or e-mail address in connection with certain promotions, offers or services that appear on our website, including offers to purchase products on-line or receive samples or information. If you opt not to provide us with personally identifiable information, no material consequences will result, although you may be unable to participate in certain promotions, receive product information, or buy products offered through ECI’s website.
ECI may store and process your personally identifiable information to better understand your needs and how we may improve our products and services, and we may use your personally identifiable information to contact you (for example, we may send you marketing or promotional materials or other information, we may respond to your comments or requests for information, or we may contact you if needed during the course of processing or shipping your order for products or services offered over our website.) We may also enhance or merge personally identifiable information with data obtained from third parties for the same purposes. ECI will not give or sell your personally identifiable information to any outside organization for the organization’s own use without your consent. Your information may be shared with agents or contractors of ECI in connection with services that these entities perform for ECI. Individually identifiable information submitted in connection with employment inquiries will be used only in the application process.
ECI is committed to keeping the data you provide us secure and will take reasonable precautions to protect your personally identifiable information from loss, misuse or alteration. Agents or contractors of ECI who have access to your personally identifiable information in connection with providing services for ECI are required to keep the information confidential and are not permitted to use this information for any other purpose than to carry out the services they are performing for ECI.
In some cases, we may collect information about you that is not personally identifiable. Examples of this type of information include the type of Internet browser or computer operating system you are using and the domain name of the website from which you linked to our site. Additionally, when you view one of our websites or advertisements, we may store some information on your computer. This information will be in the form of a “cookie” or similar file and will help us in many ways. For example, cookies allow us to tailor our website to better match your interests and preferences. Most Internet browsers enable you to erase cookies from your hard drive, block all cookies or receive a warning before a cookie is stored. Please refer to your browser instructions or help-screen to learn more about these functions. ECI does not collect personally identifiable information automatically, but we may tie information collected automatically to your previously submitted personally identifiable information.
If you have submitted personally identifiable information through an ECI website, or if someone else has submitted your personally identifiable information through an ECI website, or you are the parent or legal guardian of a person under the age of 13 who has submitted personally identifiable information, and you would like to have that information corrected or deleted from our databases, please contact us via our contact form by clicking here, or send a letter addressed to: Online Privacy Compliance Director, ECI 1536 Eastman Ave. Suite C, Ventura CA 93003. You may also contact us through either of the above methods to request the personally identifiable information that ECI has collected about you through its website. ECI will use reasonable efforts to supply you with this information and correct any factual inaccuracies in this information.
Because information submitted in connection with employment inquiries is used only in the application process, and not for marketing purposes, the procedures outlined in the above paragraph are not available with respect to such information.
