Browser Do-Not-Track Signals
The Company’s policy regarding “do-not-track” signals is available here http://www.edafunding.com.
Currently, various browsers – including Internet Explorer, Firefox, and Safari – offer a “do-not-track” or “DNT” option that relies on a technology known as a DNT header, which sends a signal to websites visited by the user about the user’s browser DNT preference setting. If the Company’s websites and Services detect a web-browser “do-not-track” signal, it will immediately respond to such signals by ceasing to track such user. The Company’s websites and Services can only control its own tracking and not that of any third-party that may be monitoring the Company’s websites.
Opt Out of Communications
We offer you a choice in how we communicate with you. If we obtain personal information about you as described above, we may contact you in regard to transactional and/or marketing/non-transactional communications. The Company’s marketing emails will always comply with laws such as CAN-SPAM. You can manage your receipt of marketing and non-transactional communications by clicking on the “unsubscribe” link at the bottom of the applicable message or by contacting us at [email protected] or call 845-494-3993.
The Company implements administrative, technical, and physical safeguards to help protect personal information we obtain against loss, theft, and misuse as well as unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, and destruction. While we follow generally accepted standards to protect information, including the use of secure socket layer (SSL) technology, no method of storage or transmission is 100% secure. We store information you provide to us on a computer system located in a controlled facility with limited access. Visitor textual information is encrypted during transmission and our databases are accessible only by the Company’s employees, contractors and agents on a need to know basis and who have entered into and are bound by a confidentiality and nondisclosure agreement with the Company. The Company generally requires third parties to keep all personally identifiable information related to our customers secure and prohibits the use of personally identifiable information for direct marketing or any other purposes not authorized by the Company.
