Our Use of Personal and non-personal Information
We collect two kinds of information about our online visitors: personal and non-personal information. Visitors are not required to register to access the public pages of our sites. Non-personal information is collected to track statistical information regarding the number and type of guests visiting Island ECC sites in order to guide our efforts to improve our sites. The non-personal information we monitor includes the browser type and operating system being used by our visitors; areas of the sites visited; date and time of access; host or service-provider information; and identification of the referring site. This information is used exclusively for our internal purposes and is not disclosed to any non-affiliated third parties.
Personal information that can identify a visitor, such as name, address or contact information, is collected only when voluntarily offered and solely for purposes that are clearly identified on our sites. Access to The City, our community platform, is password-protected and requires pre-registration. Personal information acquired through registration is kept confidential and will not be disclosed to third parties except as may be required by law.
The privacy of communication over the Internet cannot be guaranteed, because the Internet is not a secure medium. Island ECC does not assume any responsibility for any harm, loss, or damage you may experience or incur by the sending of personal or confidential information over the Internet by or to Island ECC.
Credit Card / Payment Information Policy
Island ECC may collect billing information in the course of online payments on our sites. We strive to protect the confidentiality and security of this information in our possession, custody or control by maintaining reasonable safeguards to protect against the loss, misuse or unlawful disclosure of personal information. No credit card information is stored or logged on any system housed at Island ECC – this information is passed straight to our payment processor and always communicated over encrypted communication channels.
