Your privacy is very important to us. At ECHOES we have a few fundamental principles that we follow:
We don’t ask you for personal information unless we truly need it.
We don’t share your personal information with anyone except to comply with the law, develop our products, or protect our rights.
We don’t store personal information on our servers unless required for the on-going operation of our site.
Like most website operators, ECHOES collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. ECHOES’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how ECHOES’s visitors use its website. From time to time, ECHOES may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to ECHOES’s websites choose to interact with ECHOES in ways that require ECHOES to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that ECHOES gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. Those who wish to receive ECHOES updates via email, we collect their emails. In each case, ECHOES collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with ECHOES. ECHOES does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.
ECHOES may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, ECHOES may monitor the most popular pages on the site. ECHOES may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, ECHOES does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
ECHOES discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, and partners that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on ECHOES’s behalf or to provide services available at ECHOES’s websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, and partners may be located outside of your home country; by using ECHOES’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. ECHOES will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees and partners, as described above, ECHOES discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when ECHOES believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of ECHOES, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an ECHOES website and have supplied your email address, ECHOES may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with ECHOES. We primarily use our website and social media to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. If you send us a request (for example via a email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. ECHOES takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
