SECURITY OF PERSONAL INFORMATION

We recognize that our partners trust us to protect their personal information. We take this seriously. We have taken steps to protect the personal information in our custody and control. For example, we restrict access to personal information to those of our employees and authorized service providers who need the information for the purposes described in this Privacy Policy. We have taken reasonable administrative, technical and physical safeguards to protect against unauthorized access, use, modification and disclosure of personal information in our custody and control.
 
In order to provide you with an increased level of security, online access to certain personal information may be protected by a password of your choice. We strongly recommend that you do not share your password with anyone. EEC will never ask you for your password in an unsolicited communication.
 
Regardless the foregoing, you should be aware that, unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be considered absolutely secure. Therefore, EEC does not declare or guarantee that personal information will not be lost, misused or modified, and EEC assumes no responsibility for personal information you transmit to EEC, nor for the use or misuse of personal information by you or third parties.
 
Below are some recommendations to help make your online shopping experience a safe one.
 
If you are using a public computer, always log off when you are finished. Do not share your passwords. Remember, anyone who knows your password can access your account. When creating a password, use at least eight characters - preferably a combination of upper and lower case letters and numbers. Do not use words from a dictionary, your name, email address or other personal information that can be easily obtained. We also recommend that you change your password frequently. You can change it by accessing the tab ''My account'' on our websites. Use a different password for each of your online accounts. Beware of unsolicited emails and phone calls. If you receive a suspicious email with a link to update your account information, do not click on it. Access your account directly at www.eecinc.ca. If you are contacted by a stranger who sends you an unsolicited email or asks you to confirm or provide your password or personal or banking information, ignore the request and contact us immediately.
 
For security reasons and to prevent fraud, credit card orders placed through our websites will only be accepted by EEC if the name and billing address match the name on the buyer's credit card and the address on their credit card file. If the information does not match, your order will be refused, even if the transaction has been pre-authorized by your bank. In this case, the reserved order amount will not be available for pickup until the credit is posted to your account, which may take three to seven business days..
 
DATA LEAKAGE OR THEFT

Notwithstanding the foregoing, you should be aware that, unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be considered absolutely secure. Therefore, EEC does not represent or warrant that personal information will not be lost, misused or altered, and EEC assumes no responsibility for the personal information you transmit to EEC, nor for the use or misuse of personal information by you or third parties.

In the highly unlikely event of a data leak or theft, EEC documents any incident in a repository and makes this repository available to its partners if they request it via info@eecinc.ca; Request for Incident Report.

USE OF SOCIAL MEDIA AND SOCIAL NETWORKS

We encourage you to review the privacy options and settings on the social media platforms and networks you use, so that you understand all of the choices they offer you about sharing information with us. Where appropriate, you will be able to update your preferences to reflect your usage.
