We also collect phone numbers and address details during the ordering and purchasing process. We use phone numbers solely in cases where an issue arises with an order and use address details to facilitate delivery of purchased products. When a purchase order is placed with us, we collect credit card information which we use solely to process your order. We use industry standard (SSL) encryption to ensure that your payment information is kept confidential. We do not retain credit card numbers for future orders and we never share any payment information with any third party, other than the credit card processing company.

We may use digital analytics tools to help us understand how our web site is being used and may share non-personal, non-individual statistical or demographic information in aggregate form with our marketing partners or other parties for research purposes. In other words, we will not specifically identify you or tell our marketing partners that you purchased a specific product, but we may tell them how many customers purchased each product and may use the output from digital analytics programs to identify trends and behaviours.
We use “web server logs” and "cookies" to track user behaviour on our website in order to improve our website performance and track the effectiveness of our marketing campaigns. In the future, we may use this information to personalise your experience with our online store. However, we only analyze this data in aggregate and do not tie browsing behavior back to individual customer names. In accordance with the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act, ECS does not collect information on any person under 13 years. We ask that children do not submit information to us without the consent of a parent or guardian.
