Communications and Communication Tools

EL communicates with users, and facilitates communications between users, in a variety of ways.

  • Lead Response: we make tools available that facilitate communications between EL and lessees by phone or email. When these tools are used, we may collect certain information related to the communication, such as contact logs, calling number, call duration, contents of the email communication, and (when notified during the call) call recordings. We will use this information to enforce our rights to collect fees payable by lessees.
  • Refer-to-a-Friend: if you use the Refer-to-a-Friend or other email tools, we do not permanently store the email address you provide us with, or use that email address for any marketing purpose. We do not rent or sell these email addresses.
  • Email preferences: we provide all users with the opportunity to opt-out of receiving promotional, marketing-related, or otherwise non-essential communications from us after setting up an account.
  • We may use third-party advertising companies, such as Google or Yahoo!, to serve ads on our behalf. These companies may employ cookies and web beacons to measure advertising effectiveness. Any information that these third parties collect via cookies and web beacons is completely anonymous.
  • Third Parties: except as otherwise expressly included in this Privacy Policy, this document addresses only the use and disclosure of information we collect from you. If you disclose your information to others, whether they are EL employees, other lessees, or other sites throughout the Internet, different rules may apply to their use or disclosure of the information you disclose to them. EagleLeasing.com does not control the privacy policies of third parties. We encourage you to ask questions before you disclose your personal information to others.
  • Our website links to other websites that may collect personal information about you. EagleLeasing.com is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of those linked websites.

 

Security

Your information is stored on our servers located in the United States. We treat data as an asset that must be protected, and use many tools, such as encryption, passwords, and physical security, etc., to protect your personal information against unauthorized access and disclosure. However, as you may know, third parties may unlawfully intercept or access transmissions or private communications, and other users may abuse or misuse your personal information that they collect from the website. Therefore, although we work very hard to protect your privacy, we do not promise, and you should not expect, that your personal information or private communications will always remain private.
