ECTA respects your privacy. You do not need to disclose any personal information in order to view this Web site. This notice explains our online information practices, and describes how and to what extent we collect information when you visit this Web site. ECTA will respond to direct inquiries from site visitors, but we do not otherwise use information collected from visitors to our site for marketing or other purposes, and ECTA does not provide or sell such information to third parties. We may use the information supplied by you or your browser to track the popularity of this site and the usefulness of particular links or features. This Privacy Policy will be periodically assessed as new technologies are developed and when visitors' needs change.

Information ECTA Collects Automatically from You
ECTA collects no personally-identifiable information about you when you visit our Web site unless you choose to provide this information to us. However, we do collect and store certain other information automatically that does not identify you personally. We automatically collect:
· the Internet domain. For example, "xcompany.com" if you use a private Internet access account, or "yourschool.edu" if you connect from a university's domain
· the Internet Protocol (IP) address. An IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to the computer you are using whenever you access the Internet (e.g., 123.123.123.123), whether it is yours individually or provided as a proxy by your Internet Service Provider (ISP) through which you access our Web site

  • the type of browser and operating system used to access our Web site
  • the date and time you access our Web site
  • the pages on our Web site that you access
  • the address of a referring Web site (if you linked to our site from another Web site)
We use this information in the form of summary statistics to help us make our Web site more useful to our visitors, such as assessing what information is of most and least interest, and for other purposes such as determining the Web site's design specifications and identifying system performance or problem areas.

This information is NOT shared with anyone except ECTA and its member companies.

Our Commitment to Security
ECTA employs security measures to prevent unauthorized access to information that we collect online. However, we cannot guarantee the security of your personal information. Please note that e-mail is not secure from interception, so senders cannot expect privacy. This also applies to sending online forms, unless the form is secure. If you would rather not submit information via email, you may wish to send it by traditional mail or courier instead to the following address:
