When you access or use our Sites, we automatically collect information about you, including:

  • Information Collected by Cookies and Similar Tracking Technologies: We and our service providers use different technologies to collect information, including cookies and web beacons. Cookies are small data files stored on your hard drive or in device memory that help us improve our Sites and your experience, see which areas and features of our Sites are popular, and count visits. Web beacons (also known as “pixel tags” or “clear GIFs”) are electronic images that may be used in our Sites or emails and help deliver cookies, count visits, and understand usage and campaign effectiveness. For more information about cookies and how to disable them, see Your Choices below.

Information We Collect from Other Sources
We may also obtain information about you from other sources and combine that with information we collect directly from you.

USE OF INFORMATION
We may use the information we collect to:

  • Provide, maintain, personalize, and improve our Sites, programs, and services;
  • Provide and deliver the information you request, process donations and transactions, and send you related information, including receipts;
  • Respond to your emails, submissions, comments, questions and requests, request feedback or support, and otherwise contact you about your use of the Sites;
  • Send you technical notices, updates, security alerts, and support and administrative messages and to respond to your comments, questions, and customer service requests;
  • Communicate with you, such as sending you information to keep you informed about our organization and its mission, and various issues, events, and activities, and providing other news and information we think will be of interest to you (see Your Choices below for information about how to opt out of certain communications at any time);
  • Solicit donations and support for EC and for other organizations and issues that we support;
  • Monitor and analyze trends, usage, and activities in connection with our Sites;
  • Detect, investigate and prevent fraudulent transactions and other illegal activities and protect the rights and property of EC and others; and
  • Carry out any other purpose described to you at the time the information was collected.

 

SHARING OF INFORMATION
We may share information about you as follows (or as otherwise described in this Privacy Policy):

  • With vendors, service providers, and consultants that carry out work on our behalf;
  • In response to a request for information if we believe disclosure is in accordance with, or required by, any applicable law or legal process, including lawful requests by public authorities to meet national security or law enforcement requirements;
  • If we believe your actions are inconsistent with our user agreements or policies, or to protect the rights, property, and safety of EC or others;
  • In connection with, or during negotiations of, any reorganization, formation of a successor organization, asset sale or transfer, financing or lending transaction, or in any other situation where personal information may be disclosed or transferred as one of the assets of EC;
  • Between and among EC and our current and future parents, affiliates, subsidiaries, related companies, and other entities under common control and ownership; and
  • With your consent or at your direction.
  • We may also share aggregated or de-identified information that cannot reasonably be used by those third parties to identify you.

 

SOCIAL SHARING FEATURES
The Sites may offer social sharing features and other integrated tools (such as the Facebook “Like” button), which let you share actions you take on our Sites with other media, and vice versa. Your use of such features enables the sharing of information with your friends or the public, depending on the settings you establish with the entity that provides the social sharing feature. For more information about the purpose and scope of data collection and processing in connection with social sharing features, please visit the privacy policies of the entities that provide these features.

ANALYTICS SERVICES PROVIDED BY OTHERS
We may allow others to provide analytics services on our behalf. These entities may use cookies, web beacons, device identifiers and other technologies to collect information about your use of the Site and other websites and applications, including your IP address, web browser, mobile network information, pages viewed, time spent on pages or in apps, links clicked, and conversion information. This information may be used by EC and others to, among other things, analyze and track data, determine the popularity of certain content, deliver content targeted to your interests on our Site and other websites, and better understand your online activity.

 

TRANSFER OF INFORMATION TO THE U.S. AND OTHER COUNTRIES
EC is based in the United States and we process and store information in the U.S. Therefore, we and our service providers may transfer your information to, or store or access it in, jurisdictions that may not provide equivalent levels of data protection as your home jurisdiction. We will take steps to ensure that your personal data receives an adequate level of protection in the jurisdictions in which we process it.

YOUR CHOICES
Cookies
Most web browsers are set to accept cookies by default. If you prefer, you can usually choose to set your browser to remove or reject browser cookies. Please note that if you choose to remove or reject cookies, this could affect the availability and functionality of our Sites.

Promotional Communications
You may opt out of receiving promotional emails or text messages from EC by following the instructions in those emails or text messages. If you opt out, we may still send you non-promotional emails, such as those about your account or our ongoing business relations.
