Information We Collect And How We Use It
INFORMATION WE COLLECT AND HOW WE USE IT
As a visitor to the website, EIR does not automatically collect information that personally identifies you. The only personally identifiable information (e.g., name, address, email address) we may collect is volunteered by you. The only place we ask for this information is on our “Contact Us” page where we ask for your name and email address. If you decide to send us personally identifiable information via email or through the “Contact Us” page, such as your email or mailing address or phone number in a request for marketing materials, the information that is collected is only used for the purposes of responding to your request or to provide you information about our services and products. If you do not wish to receive this information, there is an “unsubscribe” mechanism in the emails or you can email firstname.lastname@example.org. We will never share your information with any third party outside of our organization.
Our website does automatically collect non-personally identifiable information about your visit to our site using Google Analytics. This information may include your IP address, the date and time of visit, your geographical location, browser type, what pages you view, how long you spend on a page, and resources you access. We use this information to improve our site, for security or system administration purposes, for better marketing of our products and services, and to report on statistics. We do not make any attempt to link this information with you as an individual.
Like many companies, our website uses Google Analytics data collection technology to collect information that identifies your computer, but does not personally identify you. As stated above, this comprises information about your IP addresses, browser type and language, referring pages and URLs, keywords, date and time, and what sections of this site you visit.
This information is collected using cookies. Cookies are text files that a website sends to a visitor’s computer or other Internet-connected device to uniquely identify the visitor’s browser or to store information or settings in the browser. A cookie in no way gives us access to your computer or any information about you, other than the data you choose to share with us.
Information gathered through cookies helps us measure use of our website and understand website traffic. Cookie data allow us to track usage behavior and compile data that we can use to improve the site. This data will be used in aggregate form; no specific users will be tracked. The Google Analytics terms do not allow collecting or storing of your personal information (e.g., your name or address.) Your IP address is anonymized prior to being stored on Google’s servers in order to help safeguard your privacy. We do not allow Google to use or share our analytics data.
If you do not wish to have your information shared with the Analytics software, Google makes available a “plug-in” for users of the Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari and Chrome browsers which prevents your browser from sharing any information with the Analytics software. You may download and install the “plug-in” here: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout.
Certain web browsers allow you to instruct your browser to automatically send a “Do Not Track” signals to websites and online services you visit, informing those sites that you do not want your online activities to be tracked. However, there is not a common understanding of how to interpret this signal and so our website does not recognize or respond to these signals.
ACCESS TO PERSONAL INFORMATION
We will not sell, distribute or lease your personal information to third parties unless we have your permission or to comply with a law, regulation, legal or government requests (such as a court order or subpoena). In addition, we may also disclose your personal information we hold (1) when we believe disclosure is necessary to prevent physical harm or financial loss to EIR or the public as required or permitted by law, (2) to establish, exercise, or defend our legal rights, (3) in connection with an investigation of suspected or actual fraud, illegal activity, security or technical issues and (4) in the event of, or during negotiations of any merger, sale of company assets, financing or acquisition of all or a portion of our business to another company.
You may request details of personal information which we hold about you under the Data Protection Act 1998. If you wish to access this information, to update or change your information, or for us to stop using this information or take you off the email distribution list, you can email us at email@example.com. Alternatively you can send us your corrections or requests at the address below. Please be aware that we will remove or correct your information but that it may take up to 30 days to process your request.
CONTROLLING YOUR INFORMATION
By using this website, you agree that we can place cookies on your computer or device as explained above. However, you can control and manage cookies in various ways. Please bear in mind that removing or blocking cookies can have an impact on your user experience and parts of this website may no longer be fully accessible.
LINKS TO OTHER SITES
This website may contain links to other web sites of interest. EIR is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of other websites once you leave our site. Therefore, we recommend that you carefully read the privacy statements of each of these sites before you choose to provide any information.
GENERAL SECURITY POLICY
EIR maintains and has put in place reasonable precautions to protect information from loss, misuse and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration and destruction of the information under our control. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure, so we cannot warrant the security of any information in transit to us.
We understand the importance of protecting children’s privacy online. This website is not designed or intentionally targeted at children under the age of 13. If we obtain actual knowledge that we have received information about someone under the age of 13, we will take steps to delete that information from our databases.
