Additional information

How we protect your data

Ecspex continues to evolve our physical, organizational and technological measures used to protect your personal information.  For example, if a Ecspex website requests your name and password, it will have a variety of security measures in place that are designed to protect against the loss, misuse and unauthorized alteration of the personal information submitted to Ecspex. Through Ecspex’s Code of Business Standards and Principles, Ecspex employees are made aware of the importance of appropriately and securely handling personal information, to keep it in secure locations and systems, and to limit access to personal information to those with a need to know it for business reasons.

In addition, certain Ecspex systems and processes are externally certified on a regular basis (e.g. certification to ISO/IEC 27001:2013 Information Security Management System standard).

You have an obligation to safeguard your personal information. You can reduce risk of unauthorized access to your personal information by using common sense security practices. For example, you are responsible for utilizing appropriate security measures to control access to your device and computer system, such as creating a strong password that cannot be easily guessed by others (e.g. by including punctuation marks, numbers, capital and lowercase letters, and choosing a password of an appropriate length and which does not include your name or account name), using different passwords for different services and using up-to-date antivirus software.

As noted above, in some cases, you may adjust the permissions granted to Third Party Offerings.  You should periodically review these permissions including default permissions, as well as the Options or Settings menu on your device, in order to learn more about its security and available controls.

If you return, sell, discard, or transfer your device or other product to another person or entity (such as providing your device to a service company or another entity for repair, refurbishment or replacement), you should ensure that the device and any associated accessories and peripherals are removed or securely wiped of any personal information or other sensitive data they might contain (e.g. SIM cards, microSD cards). You should also disassociate your device from all email accounts and other data services so that email and data are no longer directed to the device (e.g. push services, emails delivered through the Internet Service, remote backup).  Otherwise, your personal information may be available to a subsequent user of the device, and you may incur subscription and network data charges. You may learn more about how to take steps to protect yourself through the Options or Settings menu on your device, searching support articles online, or by contacting your service provider.

What data breach procedures we have in place

If a data breach occurs, Ecspex, llc will contact you with potential steps for you to re-secure your personal information.  If you suspect a data breach you should change all passwords.

What third parties we receive data from

There are many third party vendors who collect data and share or sell the data.  For the most part Ecspex, llc gathers its own data directly from customers and clients or through business listings online.

What automated decision making and/or profiling we do with user data

Personal data collected is used to create private profiles that allow either automated programs or consulting professionals to better recommend services or products. This profile information is proprietary, even when utilized through programs and services Ecspex may purchase or subscribe to.  This profile information is not shared or sold.
