Linking and Framing

Framed Site: ECPA does not control and has no liability with respect to content which is incorporated from a framed site (a website operated by another entity whose material is presented in a browser window frame alongside material from our Site). Use of such content may be subject to other terms and conditions imposed by the operator of such site. This Privacy Policy does not apply to information that may be collected by such third party site.

Links: The Site may contain links to other sites. Please be aware that ECPA is not responsible for the privacy practices of such other websites. We encourage you to be aware when you leave the Site and to read the privacy policies of every website that collects Personal Data. This Privacy Policy applies solely to information collected by the Site.

User Agreement: Your access to and use of the Site constitutes acceptance of the Terms of Use displayed on the Site.

Security: At ECPA we take the issue of security very seriously. It is a top priority to ensure that all current and future information collected from our users is secure. We are careful to limit the number of individuals who have access to our database servers as well as maintaining standard commercial standards in electronic security and password protection. 

On-line Polls and Surveys: Occasionally we collect poll or survey responses to find out what ECPA users think, or for statistical or research purposes. Our polls and surveys do not collect, nor are they linked to, any Personal Data, and they are voluntary. The results of our demographic and opinion surveys are grouped and analyzed as a whole - in the aggregate. ECPA may share this aggregated information with other parties.

Using "Cookie" Technology: We use a software technology called "cookies" to collect non-personal information about our visitors. Such information includes: type of browser software a visitor uses to access the Internet (i.e. Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome, Safari, Netscape, etc.); type of operating system (i.e. Windows, Macintosh, etc.); or the domain name of the visitor's Internet service provider. We also count the number of visitors who come to our site each day in an aggregate form. Such information allows us to better assess which attractions are best meeting our audience's needs.

Notification of Changes: From time to time we may make changes to our Privacy Policy. If we make changes, we will post them on the Site to make users aware of what the changes are so users will always be aware of what information we collect, how we use it, and when we may disclose it. A user is bound by any changes to the policy when she or he uses the Site after those changes have been posted. If, however, we are going to use users' Personal Data in a manner materially different from that stated at the time of collection we will notify by posting a notice on our Site for 30 days.
