SECURITY

EECC makes every effort to protect your information, including:

  • Physical safekeeping: As a secure facility, our offices are restricted to employees and authorized visitors only. All computers are password-protected.
  • Electronic safekeeping: We use a perimeter firewall that is configured to let only necessary traffic through. All computers are patched regularly and have up-to-date antivirus software.
  • Administrative safekeeping: All of our website visitors’ information is restricted to EECC offices. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific function (e.g. processing a donor receipt) are granted access to files and folders on the server containing personally identifiable information. All employees are educated about EECC’s high expectations for ethical standards, policies and practices committed to the protection of user information. Training and review of these policies takes place periodically.

Although EECC takes all measures – physical, electronic and administrative – to prevent unauthorized access to and maintain the accuracy of your data and information, no information transferred over the Internet is 100% secure. The EECC cannot guarantee the total security of information transmitted to us.

Our nation excels because we have the world’s most productive, creative, and innovative private sector. When we develop products and practices that improve building safety and put thousands of dollars into the wallets of homeowners, it is critical that these developments are updated in building codes and standards so that building inspectors remain familiar with new technologies and citizens and businesses can benefit from the energy savings they bring.
