Privacy Policy
ECM is committed to protecting your privacy online. This policy explains how we will do this. We will review this policy in the light of comments we receive so please check the latest version.
If you have any questions about how we handle your personal data, please do get in touch with the appropriate ECM office.

Personal Information
If you provide personal data it will be processed fairly.

  • "Personal Data" is any data about you, even if it is in the public domain, eg. name, address, phone number.
  • "Processed" includes gathering, exchanging and storing data.
  • "Fairly" requires consent ( which may be implied) from you based on your knowledge of the use of that data.

What information do we collect?
If you are making an enquiry via a web form, we may store your name and contact details (email address and/or telephone number). We also collect other information automatically, as described below.

Automatically collected information
We automatically receive certain types of information whenever you interact with us on our sites and in internal e-mail correspondence. Automatic technologies we use may include, for example, Web server logs/IP addresses, cookies and Web beacons.

Web Server Logs/IP Addresses. An IP address is a number assigned to your computer whenever you access the Internet. All computer identification on the Internet is conducted with IP addresses, which allows computers and servers to recognise and communicate with each other. ECM International collects IP addresses via Google Analytics in order to conduct site analysis and Web site performance review.

Cookies. A cookie is a piece of information that is placed automatically on your computer’s hard drive when you access certain Web sites. The cookie uniquely identifies your browser to the server. Cookies allow us to store information on the server to help make the Web experience better for you and to conduct site analysis and Web site performance review. Most Web browsers are set up to accept cookies, although you can reset your browser to refuse all cookies or to indicate when a cookie is being sent. Note, however, that some portions of our sites may not work properly if you refuse cookies.

Web Beacons. On certain Web pages or e-mails, ECM International may utilize a common Internet technology called a “Web beacon” (also known as an “action tag” or “clear GIF technology.”) Web beacons help analyse the effectiveness of Web sites by measuring, for example, the number of visitors to a site or how many visitors clicked on key elements of a site.

Web beacons, cookies and other tracking technologies do not automatically obtain personally identifiable information about you. Only if you voluntarily submit personally identifiable information, such as by registering or sending e-mails, can these automatic tracking technologies be used to provide further information about your use of the Web sites and/or interactive e-mails to improve their usefulness to you.

How do we use your information?
We use the details you submit to send you information you have requested.
By providing data through this site you are giving consent for it to be processed fairly.

When do we share information?
We do not give or sell your personal information to other organisations.
We will keep your information secure and not use it for other purposes without consent.
Other web sites may have links on our site. If you follow the link to these sites, they may collect information, and such sites are not within our control.
This ECM privacy statement only covers this website.
If we believe that your use of the site is unlawful, we reserve the right to disclose any information we have obtained through the site about you to the extent that it is reasonably necessary in our opinion to prevent, remedy or take action in relation to such conduct.
