Purposes of Use
EmpowerE uses “cookies” in connection with the operation of its website. Cookies are small strings of information that are stored on the visitor’s local browser cache. Cookies are used for record-keeping purposes in EmpowerE’s website server when the visitor returns to the website. These allow EmpowerE to optimize the website and simplify its use for the visitor, such as to automate access and data-entry functions or to store online ordering information for purchases the visitor may make while visiting the site. Data collected via cookies will not be used to determine the personal identity of the website visitor, nor to track the navigational habits of the visitor.
Most browsers are configured to accept cookies automatically. You can configure your browser to reject them or to inform you when they are being set. However, if you elect not to accept cookies, some parts of the website may not function properly or permit access.
EmpowerE uses technical and organizational security precautions to protect your data from manipulation, loss, destruction, or access by unauthorized persons. Any personal data that is provided to EmpowerE by you will be encrypted in transit to prevent its possible misuse by third parties. While no security measure can guarantee against compromise, EmpowerE regularly reviews and updates its security measures based on new technological developments in an effort to provide appropriate security for all information held by EmpowerE.
We may retain your information only for as long as is necessary for us to render a service to you, comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements.
