When you engage with Encore by requesting products or services, any personal information you provide is voluntary. We collect and use only the minimum information necessary to respond to your concerns, sell products or offer services. In most cases, the information you provide is limited to personal contact information, such as name, company name, address, telephone number, or email address.
Other data, such as is common in the navigation of websites, includes information that does not directly identify you as an individual but rather your browser type, IP address, the URL of the previous web site you visited, the type of operating system used, the time of day, etc. www.encore.tech may automatically collect these types of non-personal information from your browser when visiting this site.
Cookies are text files containing small amounts of information which may be downloaded and stored in your browser's memory when you visit the www.encore.tech website. Cookies are useful because they help arrange the content and layout displayed on your device and allow us to recognize those computers or devices that have been to our site before. Cookies perform various tasks, such as allowing our website to remember your preference settings and helping us to enhance the usability and performance of our sites and your experience using them.
This site uses session cookies to store information that you provide and to store technical information useful for your interactions with our site. For instance, they may remember your user ID and elements of your user profile upon login. The information these cookies collect may be anonymous and they cannot track your browsing activity on other websites.
We have chosen to partner with additional responsible third parties. Their business policies may include different privacy policies and practices than those in use at Encore Technologies. Please be aware that when you choose to utilize the services or web functionality provided by these third parties our privacy policies no longer apply and that we are not responsible for the privacy practices of these other sites. We encourage you to review the policies of each site you use. To that end, we have provided links to their privacy statements below:

Any personal information provided to us is stored within a secured computing environment accessible to a limited number of persons who have appropriate access rights to such systems, and are required and trained to keep the information confidential. We employ reasonable information security safeguards intended to protect personal information from unauthorized disclosure or alteration. It is not possible, however, to warrant or guarantee that any computing environment is impervious to compromise by malicious parties hoping to acquire sensitive information illicitly. Therefore, you acknowledge an element of inherent risk in providing your personal information. While we will utilize reasonable industry safeguards to protect your personal information, it is not possible to foresee every possible contingency or threat to this data.
The California Online Privacy Protection Act (CalOPPA) is the first state law in the nation to require commercial websites and online services to post a privacy notice. The law applies to businesses beyond California and requires a person or company in the United States that operates websites collecting personally identifiable information from California consumers to post a conspicuous privacy notice on the websites they operate disclosing the information being collected and any third parties with whom it is being shared.
In accordance with CalOPPA, Encore agrees to the following:
• Users can visit our site anonymously
• We will provide a link to this Privacy Statement on our home page
• Our Privacy Statement link includes the word 'Privacy' and can be easily identified on the page specified above
• Users are able to change their personal information by contacting us by email
How does www.encore.tech handle Do Not Track (DNT) signals in browsers?
• Because the providers of “do not track” and similar signals do not yet operate according to common, industry-accepted standards, we currently do not respond to those signals.
Does www.encore.tech accommodate third party behavioral tracking?
• Beyond the performance monitoring involved with the non-personally identifiable information mentioned above, we do not support third party behavioral tracking.
When it comes to the collection of personal information from children under 13, the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) provides parents the right to control the data identifying their child(ren). The Federal Trade Commission, the nation's consumer protection agency, enforces the COPPA Rule, which spells out what operators of websites and online services must do to protect children's privacy and safety online.
www.encore.tech does not specifically market to children under 13 years of age nor do we knowingly collect this type of information. If we learn we have collected or received personal information from a child under 13 without verification of parental consent, we will delete that information.
The CAN-SPAM Act is a law that sets the rules for commercial email, establishes requirements for commercial messages, gives recipients the right to have emails stopped from being sent to them, and spells out tough penalties for violations.
Encore may collect your email address in order to:
• Send information, respond to inquiries, and/or other requests or questions
• Process orders and to send information and updates pertaining to orders
• Send additional information related to your product orders
• Market to our mailing list or continue to send emails to our clients after the original transaction has occurred
To be in compliance with the CAN-SPAM Act we agree to the following:
• We will not use false, or misleading subjects or email addresses
• Identify marketing messages as an advertisement in some reasonable way
• Include the physical address of our business or site headquarters
• Monitor third party email marketing services for compliance, if one is used
• Honor opt-out/unsubscribe requests quickly
• Allow users to unsubscribe by using the link contained within each marketing email
The Fair Information Practices Principles form the backbone of privacy law in the United States and the concepts they include have played a significant role in the development of data protection laws around the globe. Understanding the Fair Information Practice Principles and how they should be implemented is valuable in complying with the various privacy laws that protect personal information.
In order to be in compliance with Fair Information Practices, Encore will take the following responsive action, in the unlikely event a data breach occurs:
• We will notify those affected via email within 7 business days of discovery of the event.
• We will notify website visitors via in-site notification within 7 business days of discovery of the event.
In the unlikely event that we are required by law to disclose the information that you have submitted, we will comply with requests made by authorized law enforcement. Unless we are legally prohibited from doing so, we will attempt to provide you with notice that a request for your information has been made in an effort to give you an opportunity to object to the disclosure. If you do not challenge the disclosure request, we may be legally required to submit your information to law enforcement officials.
