EMD has created this privacy statement in order to express our firm’s commitment to your privacy, specifically related to our website.
EMD and our Internet service provider both have security measures in place to protect your privacy from the loss, misuse and/or alteration of the information under our control.
A “cookie” is a commonly used text file placed on your hard drive, during your first visit to a website, by a web page server to uniquely identify your returning computer, which can only be read by the web page server that issued the “cookie”. EMD may use “cookies” to help personalize and maximize our visitor’s online experiences within our website. The information collected would be limited to IP addresses, URL’s of the pages viewed, dates/times/durations of visits, browsers and search engine key words used to view the website, but would never be shared, sold, marketed, rented or traded outside EMD, unless required by law. Information regarding individual users, their searches or personally identifiable information would never be collected without your voluntary knowledge.
The only personally identifiable information EMD will collect about you online, is information that you voluntarily provide us. Some examples of this are when you send us an e-mail or utilize myEMD. The personally identifiable information you provide us will only be retained for as long as reasonably necessary to carry out our business objectives and will not be shared, sold, marketed, rented or traded outside EMD without your permission, unless required by law.
When utilizing myEMD, you are fully and solely responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your password, account and account activity. Please choose a password carefully so that it is not obvious and easily obtained by unauthorized third parties. You agree to immediately notify EMD of any unauthorized use of your password, account and/or any other breach of security. EMD may rely on the authority of anyone accessing your account or using your password and will not be liable for any damages resulting from unauthorized access. No one is ever permitted to use anyone else’s account, without their expressed written permission.
EMD understands the importance of respecting and protecting the privacy of minors, especially in an on-line environment. Our website is not intentionally designed for or directed at children under the age legally permissible to be employed. It is our policy to never knowingly collect or maintain information specific to anyone under the age legally permissible to be employed.
