About ECC's Website

ECC Privacy Notice

This Privacy Notice explains how Environmental Chemical Corporation (“ECC”) treats personal information or data about you in the operation of this Website (www.ecc.net). ECC is the data “controller” of any personal information that you submit to this Website.

Under certain circumstances, your personal information or data may be shared or processed by one of ECC’s subsidiaries or affiliates. In those cases, this Privacy Notice also applies. However, this Privacy Notice does not apply to information collected or used for employment-related purposes. ECC has separate, internal privacy practices and policies relating to information collected from job applicants or prospective, current, or former employees. 

For questions about this Privacy Notice or ECC’s data processing activities in connection to its Website, please contact: webmaster@ecc.net.


Uses Made of Your Personal Data and the Legal Basis for This 

We use personal data held about you in a number of ways during the course of our business operations. We will only collect, use, and share your personal data where we have an appropriate legal basis to do so. This includes, but is not limited to the following:

  • For our legitimate business interests (or those of a third party) provided that such interests are not outweighed by your fundamental rights and freedoms. [For example: (i) to liaise with customers and suppliers about our business operations; (ii) to ensure that content from our Website is presented in the most effective manner for you and for your computer; and (iii) to comply with lawful requests made by authorities, and to otherwise voluntarily co-operate with regulatory bodies at our discretion.]
  • To perform a contract entered into between you and us, or to take steps at your request before entering into such a contract. For example to consider your application to enter into an employment contract with us.
  • To comply with a legal obligation to which we are subject. For example, where we are obligated to provide information, or assistance, to courts, government authorities, or other regulatory bodies.
  • Where you have consented to our processing. If we are processing your personal data (including special category personal data) on the basis of your consent, this can be withdrawn at any time.


Personal Data We May Collect from You 

The nature and purpose of our personal data processing will depend on the specific circumstances. While you are not obliged to provide us with any personal data, if you fail to provide certain information, we may be unable to communicate with you and/or respond to your specific inquiry. 

We collect personal data in a number of ways, including:

  • Through your interactions on this Website. In line with the principle of data minimization, we limit the personal data that we collect via our operation of the Website. However, we may collect personal data in certain circumstances, for example, when you contact us using the form on the “Contact ECC” section of the Website. The information we may collect in this form includes:

            – Basic, personal details (e.g., title, name, associated company)

            – Contact details (e.g., phone number, address, email, company website)

            – Comments and/or responses to questions (e.g., your reason for contacting ECC, how you heard about the company)

  • We may also collect some information automatically through your interactions with the Website. For example, we may collect information about your device, your IP address, pages that you visit on the Website, and other such automatically-collected information.
  • Job applicants: You may submit personal information or data when applying for a job or to be a subcontractor on the “Opportunities” section of the Website. The information we will collect might include the same personal details, contact details, or responses to questions, as explained above.
  • Suppliers, service providers, and other third-parties: If we engage with you or your employer to provide products and/or services, we may collect and process personal information and/or data about you necessary to further the engagement. Such information may include:

            – Basic, personal details (e.g., name, job title, contact information)

            –  Details about the products or services to support a future contractual agreement

  • Special category data: Some special categories of personal data are given additional protection under global data protection legislation. Examples of this might be information about your health (such as any disabilities), information about your racial or ethnic origin, and information about your sex life or sexual orientation. We do not anticipate routinely processing special category personal data, although we may in some circumstances. For example, if you include special category personal data in any communications that you send to us or if you alert us about any disabilities when applying for a job. Where we process special category personal data, we generally do so either on the basis that you have explicitly consented to this processing, by freely providing us with the information, or where it is necessary for us to comply with specific obligations in the field of employment law.


How We Share and Protect Personal Data

As noted above, we may share your personal information or data with ECC and its subsidiaries and affiliates. We may also share your personal data with third parties. For example:

  • Service providers who help to manage our business and deliver services. These third parties have agreed to confidentiality restrictions and use any personal data we share with them or which they collect on our behalf solely for the purpose of providing the contracted service to us. For example, we use Jobvite to assist us with the job application process.
  • Our legal, financial, or other advisors in order to obtain professional services.
  • In order to prevent fraud, investigate crimes (or potential crimes), and ensure security.


ECC is headquartered in the State of California with offices throughout the United States. Personal data that we collect from you may, therefore, be transferred to a different office. Under certain circumstances, we may also transfer your personal data outside of the United States. Before transferring any such data, we first ensure that appropriate safeguards are utilized to protect the transferring of any such data in compliance with our own policies and applicable law.


How Long We Store Your Personal Data

We will store your personal data for as long as is reasonably necessary for the purposes for which it was collected, as explained in this Privacy Notice. In some circumstances, we may store your personal data for longer periods of time, for instance where we are required to do so in accordance with legal, regulatory, tax, or accounting requirements.

We store personal data relating to unsuccessful job applications for six months starting from the date of receipt of your application. If you are successful in your application, you will be provided with a copy of our Employee Privacy Notice, which explains how your data will be used and retained during your employment relationship with ECC and after.

In specific circumstances we may store your personal data for longer periods of time so that we have an accurate record of your dealings with us in the event of any complaints or challenges, or if we reasonably believe there is a prospect of litigation relating to your personal data or relationship with us.

Once your personal data is no longer needed, it is securely destroyed.


Your Rights

In certain circumstances—and depending on the jurisdiction in which you are located—you may have rights in relation to the personal information and/or data we collect. Where our processing of your personal data is subject to European data protection legislation, you may have the right to:

  • Request access to your personal data;
  • Request correction of your personal data;
  • Request erasure of your personal data;
  • Object to the processing of your personal data;
  • Request restriction of processing your personal data;
  • Request transfer of your personal data to a third party; and
  • Make a complaint to the appropriate EU Data Protection Authority.


To inquire about your rights, and exercise them where applicable, please contact us using the contact details provided above. We aim to respond to requests made by you within one month, but may extend that period when necessary. Please note that the above rights are not absolute and certain exemptions may apply.

We will not ordinarily charge a fee for you to exercise any of the rights listed above, but reserve our right to charge a reasonable fee, or to refuse to act on requests which are manifestly unfounded or excessive.
