Your privacy is important to us. We respect your privacy and are committed to protecting your personal information. This Privacy Statement clarifies how we collect, transfer, process, use and disclose your data and sets out Echwood’s security practices.
By providing us with your personal information, you agree and consent to its transfer, processing, use and disclosure as outlined in this Privacy Statement.
We collect personally identifiable information that you provide to us, which is information that identifies you as an individual. We only do this when you have agreed to our request for that information. This may include but not limited to your name, address, telephone number, e-mail address and other information that you may consider personal.
We also automatically collect information about your computer browser type and operating system, websites you visited before and after visiting our websites, standard server log information, Internet Protocol (IP) addresses, GPS location data, mobile phone service provider, and mobile phone operating system. We aggregate this information to understand how our visitors use our websites and mobile applications so that we can improve their experience and the services we offer.
Echwood will take appropriate legal, organizational, and technical measures to protect your personal information consistent with applicable privacy and data security laws. When Echwood uses a third-party service provider, that provider will be carefully selected and required to use appropriate measures to protect the confidentiality and security of personal information. We use a variety of security technologies and procedures to help protect your information from unauthorised access, use or disclosure.
We do not sell, trade, or rent users personal information to others. We may share your information with our affiliates, contractors and agents in the normal course of business for delivery of the activities to which you have agreed. Sometimes we use selected third parties to provide support services in connection with our websites, mobile applications, products, services or in the normal course of business. These parties may, from time to time, have access to your information to enable them to provide those services to us. We require all companies providing such support services to meet the same standards of data protection as our own. They are prohibited from using the information for their own purposes. We do not allow service providers to use your information for their own marketing activities.
We may disclose information if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to (a) conform with the requirements of the law or comply with legal process served on us, or (b) act in urgent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of our service or members of the public. To the extent practicable and legally permitted, we will attempt to advise you prior to any such disclosure, so that you may seek a protective order or other relief limiting such disclosure.
An IP address is a set of numbers that is automatically assigned to your computer whenever you log on to your Internet service provider or through your organisation's local area network (LAN) or wide area network (WAN). Web servers automatically identify your computer by the IP address assigned to it during your session online.
