How we share your information
Personal Information Storage and Retention

Cookies & IP Addresses
EHE gathers certain information automatically and stores it. This information may include internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, and/or clickstream data. EHE and our Partners, analytics or service providers use technologies such as cookies, beacons, tags, and scripts, to analyze trends, administer and track utilization of the website.
We may collect information about your computer, including where available your IP address, operating system and browser type. We use "cookies" to remember your settings and for authentication. A cookie is a piece of data stored on a site visitor's hard drive to help us improve your access to our site and identify repeat visitors to our site. For instance, when we use a cookie to identify you, you would not have to log in a password more than once, thereby saving time while on our site. Cookies can also enable us to deliver personalized experience on our site. Cookies will not be used to store personally identifiable information.
We employ industry standard administrative, physical, and technical measures designed to safeguard and protect information under our controlled authorized access, use, and disclosure.
Wherever we collect sensitive information, that information is encrypted and transmitted to us in a secure way. You can verify this by looking for a closed lock icon at the bottom of your web browser, or looking for "https" at the beginning of the address of the web page.
For all services that EHE delivers over the internet, industry standard safeguards are implemented. EHE protects your data using both server authentication and data encryption technology. Access to your personal information is restricted to only authorized EHE employees and certain authorized partners involved in the delivery of our services.
While we use encryption to protect sensitive electronic information, we also protect your information offline. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific, necessary function are granted access to personally identifiable information. The computers/servers in which we store personally identifiable information are kept in a secure environment.
