Privacy Policy

Ecraid is committed to protecting the privacy of users and developing technology that gives users the best and as safe as possible online experience. This Privacy Policy applies to Ecraid's website and governs data collection and usage. By using this website, users consent to the data practices described in this statement.

Personal information

Collection of personal information

Ecraid collects personally identifiable information, such as the email addresses, names, home or work addresses and telephone numbers of users. Ecraid also collects anonymous demographic information, which is not unique to users, such as postal codes, user ages, gender, preferences, interests and favourites.

Information regarding computer hardware and software is automatically collected by Ecraid. This information can include IP addresses, browser types, domain names, access times and referring websites. This information is used by Ecraid for the operation of the service, to maintain quality of the service, and to provide general statistics regarding use of this website.

Please keep in mind that if you directly disclose personally identifiable information or personally sensitive data through Ecraid public message boards, this information may be collected and used by others. Please note that Ecraid will not read any of your private online communications.

Ecraid encourages users to review the privacy statements of websites they choose to link to from Ecraid so that they can understand how those websites collect, use and share user information. Ecraid is not responsible for the privacy statements or other content of websites outside of the Ecraid website.

Use of your personal information
Ecraid collects and uses personal information to operate Ecraid's website and deliver the services users have requested. Ecraid also uses personally identifiable information to inform users of other products or services available from Ecraid and its affiliates. Ecraid may also contact users via surveys to conduct research on their opinion of current services or of potential new services that may be offered.

Ecraid does not sell, rent or lease its customer lists to third parties. Ecraid may, from time to time, contact users on behalf of external business partners about a particular offering that may be of interest. In such cases, unique personally identifiable information (email address, name, address, telephone number) is not transferred to the third party. In addition, Ecraid may share data with trusted partners to help Ecraid perform statistical analysis, send users email or postal mail, provide customer support, or arrange for deliveries. All such third parties are prohibited from using personal information except to provide these services to Ecraid, and they are required to maintain the confidentiality of user information.

Ecraid does not use or disclose sensitive personal information, such as race, religion, or political affiliations, without the explicit consent of users.

Ecraid keeps track of the websites and pages that its users visit within Ecraid in order to determine which Ecraid services are the most popular. This data is used to deliver customised content and advertising within Ecraid to users whose behaviour indicates that they may be interested in a particular subject area.

Ecraid websites will disclose the personal information of users, without notice, only if required to do so by law or in the belief in good faith that such action is necessary to: (a) conform with the law or comply with any legal action involving Ecraid or the website; (b) protect and defend the rights or property of Ecraid; and (c) act under pressing circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of Ecraid or the public.

Use of cookies
The Ecraid website uses cookies to help users personalise their online experience. A cookie is a text file that is placed on a user’s hard disk by a web page server. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to a computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to each user, and can only be read by a web server within the domain that issued the cookie.

One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to users to save time. The purpose of a cookie is to tell the web server that a user has returned to a specific page. For example, if a user personalises Ecraid pages, or registers with a Ecraid website or services, a cookie helps Ecraid to recall user-specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of recording the personal information of users, such as addresses. When a user returns to the same Ecraid website, the information previously provided can be retrieved, allowing the Ecraid features which have been customised to be easily used.

Users may accept or decline cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but users can usually modify their browser settings to decline cookies should they so prefer. If users choose to decline cookies, they may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of Ecraid’s services and websites visited.

Security of your personal information
Ecraid secures the personal information of its website users from unauthorised access, use or disclosure. Ecraid secures the personally identifiable information users provide on computer servers in a controlled, secure environment, protected from unauthorised access, use or disclosure. When personal information is transmitted to other websites, it is protected through the use of encryption, such as the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol.

Changes to this Privacy Policy
This Privacy Policy is subject to change by Ecraid to reflect company and user feedback. Ecraid encourages users to periodically review this Privacy Policy to remain informed of how Ecraid is protecting user information.
