Trademarks

We own at least the following trademarks and/or service marks, whether they are registered or not in any particular country:

  • EOTEK™
  • EOVATIONS™

We own any and all versions of these marks as used on this site. The marks we own are protected by federal and state trademark laws.

As a heads up, just because a mark does not appear on this page does not mean that we do not use it or own it. Our marks (or anything confusingly similar to them) cannot be used without express, written permission. Our trademarks cannot be used in connection with any product or service that is not ours, in any manner that is likely to cause confusion among customers or clients, or in any manner that disparages or discredits Eovations.

From time to time, you may see the marks of other companies listed on our site. Such marks are solely owned by those respective companies.

Trade Dress

How we present our products and services, our product packaging, our product designs, and our company on this site is special to us. This is our "trade dress," and it is protected by federal and state law. We will enforce our rights in our trade dress too.

Privacy

We are dedicated to protecting your privacy on line. This policy explains how we do it.

Collecting and Using Information

We obtain information about you in a couple of different ways. First, you give us information anytime you search, buy, post, participate, and otherwise communicate through our site. Second, we receive information about you from other sources, such as by updated delivery and address information from our websites, distributors, customers, information obtained through search term and search result information, and credit history information obtained from credit bureaus that help us detect and prevent fraud. We only collect and gather information, however, that is necessary or relevant for our business purposes. We reserve the right to collect such information, either on an individual or aggregate basis.

We will use the information we gather only for business purposes. You agree that we may do so, in our discretion, and that we are not liable in any way for such use. Please note that we do not share personal information we learn about you from your use of our site with others except as described in this policy. It is not our business to sell your information to others. Further, we do not share your information with unrelated third parties for their direct marketing purposes. We release personal and account information only when we believe it is appropriate to comply with law, to enforce our policies, and to protect the rights, property and safety of our business and of others.

We will, however, use the information to continuously improve our business and our website development. Your comments and suggestions about our website development are always appreciated. You can provide us with your comments at info@eovationsllc.com.

Changes to Your Preferences

The information you provide us isn’t set in stone. You can edit your account information with us at any time. Most personal information you may provide is entirely optional. You can delete your or modify your account by visiting the applicable account pages; however, please note that some personal information, primarily your contact information, may remain in our records to the extent necessary to protect our legal or business interests.

Your Info and Cookies

We may use the information you provide to notify you about products and services that we feel may be of interest to you, to ask for your participation in surveys and to keep you informed about forthcoming events and promotions. You can opt-out of receiving future communications like these by sending an email to info@eovationsllc.com and asking Eovations to remove your name from our mailing list. For your security, Eovations reserves the right at all times to contact individuals if evidence of account tampering or improper account activity is discovered.

Like many website owners, Eovations makes use of browser "cookies" to enable you to navigate around the web site. None of the cookies we use enable third parties to access any of your information. By using our site, though, you agree that we may use cookies to:

  • Require you to re-enter your password after a certain period of time has elapsed to protect you against others accidentally accessing your account contents;
  • Keep track of preferences you specify while you are using our site;
  • Estimate and report our total audience size and traffic;
  • Conduct research to improve the content and services provided on our site;
  • For any other reasonable or necessary business purpose.

We may allow other persons and parties to display information on our web pages and sometimes these folks will set and access their cookies on your computer. Other entities' use of cookies is the subject to their privacy policies and not of this policy. We keep the hands of advertisers or other entities out of our “cookie” jar, so they do not have access to our cookies.

Confidentiality & Security

No activity on the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. We cannot, therefore, guarantee the security of any information that you transmit and you make such transmissions at your own risk. Once we receive your transmission, however, we make efforts to ensure security on our systems, by the following:

  • We use physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards to protect your personal information.
  • Your account information is password-protected.
  • We may use industry-standard SSL-encryption to protect data transmissions. However, please note that this is not a guarantee that such information may not be accessed, disclosed, altered or destroyed by breach of such firewalls and secure server software.

If we learn about a security systems breach, we may attempt to notify you electronically so that you can take appropriate protective steps. By using our site or providing personal information to us you agree that we can communicate with you electronically regarding security, privacy and administrative issues relating to your use of those sites, products and services. We may post a notice on our site if a security breach occurs. If this happens, you will need a web browser enabling you to view the applicable web sites. We may also send an email to you at the email address you have provided to us in these circumstances. Depending on where you live, you may have a legal right to receive notice of a security breach in writing. To receive free written notice of a security breach (or to withdraw your consent from receiving electronic notice) you should notify us at info@eovationsllc.com.
