Privacy Policy
 
 

Encorp, Inc. ("Encorp," "we" or "us") provides a variety of online services. Because our ability to serve you successfully depends on building and maintaining communication with you, we are committed to implementing measures designed to protect your privacy. This Privacy Policy governs your interaction with the Encorp website. Except as set forth within this Privacy Policy and our Terms of Use and other published guidelines, we do not release personally identifiable information about you without your permission.

 

Please note that we review our privacy practices from time to time, and that those practices are, therefore, subject to change. We ask that you bookmark and periodically review this page to ensure continuing familiarity with the most current version of our Privacy Policy. You can determine when our Privacy Policy was last revised by checking the date on the bottom of this Privacy Policy. To contact us about privacy issues, to report a violation of our Privacy Policy or to raise any other issue, please contact our webmaster via the contact information provided on the "contact us" page on our website.

 

THE INFORMATION WE GATHER

We gather two types of information about users:

  • Non-personally identifiable information: When visitors come to our website, we collect and aggregate information indicating, among other things, which pages of the website were visited, the order in which they were visited and which hyperlinks were clicked. Collecting such information involves the logging of the IP addresses, operating system and browser software used by each visitor to our website. Although such information is not personally identifiable, we can determine from an IP address a visitor's Internet service provider and the geographic location of his or her point of connectivity.
    We also use "cookies" - that is, small text files placed on a user's computer hard drive - to help us determine the type of content and websites to which a visitor to our website links and the length of time each visitor spends at any particular area of our website. Essentially, cookies are a visitor's identification card for our computers, or servers, that placed them there. Cookies are only read by the server that placed them and are unable to execute any code or virus. Cookies allow us to serve you better and more efficiently and to personalize your experience at our website. Nevertheless, you should be able to control how and whether cookies will be accepted by your web browser. For more information on how to do so, please refer to the documentation accompanying your browser.
  • Personally identifiable information: In certain areas of our website, you may choose to provide us with personally identifiable information in order to request additional information from us, such as your name, employer, street address, email address and telephone number and data so that we may analyze and provide you feedback regarding benefits of using our products and services and other information. We do not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from children (defined herein as minors younger than thirteen years of age). If you are a minor, we request that you have a parent or guardian read this policy and request any information you are seeking from us on your behalf. By providing us with your personally identifiable information, you represent that you are not a minor.

 

HOW WE USE (AND DO NOT USE) THE INFORMATION WE GATHER

Please take some time to familiarize yourself with the different ways we use the information that we gather. Keep in mind that we cannot and do not assume any responsibility for any actions or omissions of third parties, including the manner in which they use information received from Encorp, from you directly or independently. Nevertheless, if you encounter any third party associated with, or who claims association with, us who you feel is improperly collecting or using information about you, please contact our webmaster via the contact information provided on the "contact us" page of our website; we will be happy to forward your message to the third party.

  • Non-personally identifiable information: We use non-personally identifiable information in aggregate form to build higher quality, more useful online services by performing statistical analyses of the collective characteristics and behavior of our visitors, and by measuring demographics and interests regarding specific areas of our website. We may provide statistical information based on this data to affiliates and other current and potential business partners. We also may use the aggregate data to inform these third parties as to the number of people who have seen and clicked on links to their websites.

    Our website may contain links to other Internet websites. Unless otherwise explicitly stated, we are not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such websites, including such sites' use of any information (such as IP number, browser type or operating system) collected when visitors to our website click through links to those sites. Even though such information might not identify you personally, we strongly encourage you to become familiar with the privacy practices of those sites.
  • Personally identifiable information: You may choose to "opt out" of receiving promotional materials from us. If you do not "opt out" of receiving promotional materials from us, we reserve the right to send you information regarding Encorp and our products and services. If you provide personally identifiable information to any of our affiliates or other business partners, we cannot be responsible for the manner in which such third parties use the information you provide. We will not provide your personally identifiable information to third parties outside of our affiliates and business partners, except to third parties who may assist us in preparing and sending information that you request to you and as may otherwise be required by law. If you decide that you would like to discontinue receiving promotional and other information from us, you may contact our webmaster via the contact information provided on the "contact us" page of our website and ask to have such communication discontinued.

    We limit our own e-mail solicitations to those customers who have not "opted out" of receiving such communications. The solicitations are limited in that they, among other things, will clearly indicate the originator of the e-mail and provide the customer with a method of "opting out" of receiving future communications of a similar nature.

    We reserve the right to release information concerning any visitor when that visitor violates our Terms of Use or other published guidelines, or partakes (or is reasonably suspected of partaking) in any illegal activity, even without a subpoena, warrant or other court order, and to release such information in response to court and governmental orders, civil subpoenas, discovery requests and as otherwise required by law. We cooperate with law enforcement agencies in identifying those who may be using our servers or services for illegal activities. We also reserve the right to report any suspected illegal activity to law enforcement individuals or entities for investigation or prosecution.

CHANGING OR DELETING PERSONAL INFORMATION

If you would like to have your personally identifiable information removed from our database, please contact our webmaster via the contact information provided on the "contact us" page of our website, and we will use reasonable efforts to comply with your request. Keep in mind, however, that residual information will remain within our databases, access logs and other records, which may or may not contain such personally identifiable information. We will not use such residual information for commercial purposes, but reserve the right, from time to time, to recontact former customers or users of our website.

BUSINESS TRANSFERS

We may sell or transfer assets or portions of our business as we continue to improve our product and service offerings. In such transactions, user or visitor information (whether non-personally identifiable or personally identifiable) may constitute one of the transferred business assets.

QUESTIONS

Questions regarding this Privacy Policy should be directed to our webmaster via the contact information provided on the "contact us" page of our website.
