Confidentiality and Security
ECA has always considered the protection of sensitive information to be a sound business practice and a foundation of investor trust. We protect personal information we collect about you by maintaining physical, electronic and procedural safeguards. Within ECA we restrict access to non‐public personal information about you to those employees who need to know that information to provide services to you.
