Privacy Policy

It is ECigMedia’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.

Website Visitors Like most website operators, ECigMedia collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. ECigMedia’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how ECigMedia’s visitors use its website. From time to time, ECigMedia may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information Certain visitors to ECigMedia’s websites choose to interact with ECigMedia in ways that require ECigMedia to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that ECigMedia gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. Those who engage in transactions with ECigMedia are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, ECigMedia collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with ECigMedia. ECigMedia does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain service-related activities.

Aggregated Statistics ECigMedia may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. ECigMedia may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, ECigMedia does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
