This information is used by the Club for the operation of the service, to maintain quality of the service, and to provide general statistics regarding use of the ECC website.

Please keep in mind if you directly disclose personally identifiable information or other sensitive data through pages visible to members on the ECC website, this information may be collected and used by others.

Use of Your Personal Information

ECC collects and uses your personal information to operate the Club’s website and deliver the services you have requested. The Club also uses your personally identifiable information to inform you of other products or services available from the Club and its affiliates. ECC may also contact you via surveys to conduct research about your opinion of current services or of potential new services which may be offered.

The Club does not sell, rent, or lease member lists to third parties. The Club may, from time to time, contact you on behalf of external business partners about specific offerings which may be of interest to you. In those cases, your unique personally identifiable information (email, name, address, telephone number) is not transferred to the third party. In addition, ECC may share data with trusted partners to help us perform statistical analysis, send you email or postal mail, provide member support, or arrange for deliveries. All such third parties are prohibited from using your personal information except to provide these services to the Club, and they are required to maintain the confidentiality of your information.

ECC does not use or disclose sensitive personal information, such as race, religion, or political affiliations, without your explicit consent.

ECC keeps track of the pages our members visit within the Club’s website in order to determine what ECC services are most popular. This data is used to deliver customized content and advertising within the Club to members whose behavior indicates they are interested in a particular subject area.

The Club’s website will disclose your personal information, without notice, only if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to: (a) conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on the Club or the site; (b) protect and defend the rights or property of the Club; and (c) act under exigent circumstances to protect the personal safety of members of the Club, or the public.

Use of Cookies

The Club’s website uses "cookies" to help you personalize your online experience. A cookie is a text file placed on your device by a web server. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you and can be read only by a web server in the domain which issued the cookie to you.

The primary purpose of a cookie is to tell a web server you have returned to a specific page. For example, if you personalize ECC pages or register with the Club’s website or services, a cookie helps ECC to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of recording your personal information, such as billing addresses, shipping addresses, and so on. When you return to the same ECC website, the information you previously provided can be retrieved for convenience.

You may choose to either accept or decline cookies. Most browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser settings to decline cookies if you prefer. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of the ECC website or other websites you visit.

Security of Your Personal Information

The Club secures your personal information from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure.

Changes to This Statement

The Club will occasionally update this Statement of Privacy to reflect Club and member feedback. The Club encourages you periodically to review this Statement to be informed of how the Club is protecting your information.
