Your privacy is critically important to us. At Echo Mountain we have a few fundamental principles:
We don’t ask you for personal information unless we truly need it.
We don’t share your personal information with anyone except to comply with the law, develop our products, or protect our rights.
We don’t store personal information on our servers unless required for the on-going operation of one of our services.
Like most website operators, Echo Mountain collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Echo Mountain’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how visitors use its website. Echo Mountain also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users. Echo Mountain only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to Echo Mountain’s websites choose to interact with Echo Mountain in ways that require Echo Mountain to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Echo Mountain gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. Those who engage in transactions with Echo Mountain – by making a purchase, for example – are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, Echo Mountain collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Echo Mountain. Echo Mountain does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.
Echo Mountain may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. However, Echo Mountain does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
Echo Mountain discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on Echo Mountain’s behalf or to provide services available at Echo Mountain’s websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using Echo Mountain’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Echo Mountain will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, Echo Mountain discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Echo Mountain believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Echo Mountain, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an Echo Mountain website and have supplied your email address, Echo Mountain may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new offers, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with Echo Mountain and our services. Echo Mountain takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
If Echo Mountain, or substantially all of its assets, were acquired, or in the unlikely event that Echo Mountain goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of Echo Mountain may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.
