Cookies

A cookie is a small file containing information that a website creates when you visit it. A cookie may be used to track how and when you use a website and/or other websites visited. There are two common types of cookies: “session cookies” and “persistent cookies”. Session cookies store information only for the length of time that you are connected to a website – they are not saved on your computer. Once you leave the website, the originator of the Session cookies no longer has the information that was contained in it. The information stored in “persistent cookies” is written onto your computer hard drive and remains there until the expiry date of the cookie.

The ECMX Registry Website uses session cookies as an additional security feature. When you log on to the Website and are authenticated through your user name and password, a cookie will store the identification number of your browser. Throughout your web session, the session cookie acts as a type of digital signature to identify your current session and activity to the web server. The web server will monitor the number of your browser to ensure that at all times, during your session, we are dealing with you. ECMX uses that information to determine the type of information and/or service that you are looking for on our Website.

Currently, ECMX does not use persistent cookies to store information, but it may do so in the future to manage your service access profile.

For the ECMX Registry to operate, your browser must be set to accept cookies.

How We Protect Your Information

ECMX makes all commercially reasonable efforts to ensure that Personal Information and/or Company Information collected from you is protected against loss and unauthorized access. Access to your Personal Information is restricted to selected ECMX employees or agents. In addition, ECMX employs generally accepted information security techniques, such as firewalls, access control procedures, cryptography, and backup procedures to protect your information against loss and unauthorized access.

Retention of Information

ECMX retains your Personal Information and/or Company Information for as long as necessary to fulfill the purpose for which it was collected and to comply with applicable laws. This period may be indefinite.

Links to Third Party Sites

This Website may offer links to other websites. You should be aware that operators of linked websites may also collect your personal information (including information generated through the use of cookies) when you link to their websites. ECMX and FDOS are not, and shall not be held responsible for the conduct of the third parties or the information that they may collect, or use, or disclose. So it is important to familiarize yourself with their privacy policies before providing them with your Personal Information and/or Company Information.

ECMX may remove links to other websites if it suspects or determines that the other websites ar inconsistent with ECMX’s Privacy Policy or its Terms and Conditions policy. The decision whether to remove a link to another website from the ECMX Website is governed strictly by ECMX and FDOS.
