What you need to know

ETC respects the privacy of all visitors to our Web site. You control whatever personal information you wish to give us. You do not have to tell us who you are or reveal anything further about yourself.

Here is the information we do collect and how we use it:

  • Our Web server collects your domain name. We do not collect your email address. We use the domain name to measure the use of our Web site's content.
  • Any membership or personalization forms that you fill out via our Web site to interact with our various business departments (to request product literature, place an order, track an order, or otherwise correspond with an ETC individual) may request personal information such as your email address, telephone number, and specific product/materials or interests.
  • ETC Web site membership is an added feature of our Web site and is not required. You can browse the public sections of our Web site without providing ETC with any information. However, membership allows users to customize their experience on our site and access information that specified for that users type of membership.

Cookies & Surveys

We use this information simply to conduct business with you. At no time do we sell or share your information outside ETC.

  • Some of our pages may use "cookies"- data that a Web site can send to your browser, which in turn is stored on your computer system. This allows our Web site to recognize you and provide custom information whenever and wherever appropriate. You can configure your browser to notify you when you receive a cookie or you can instruct your browser to refuse cookies altogether.
  • From time to time ETC administers online surveys to solicit your opinion on our Web site content, structure and user experience. We use the information you provide in these surveys to improve our Web site. Within the survey itself we will let you know exactly how we will use the information we collect.
