Cookies and Other Tools: Do Not Track

Like many websites, EditCo uses cookies, web beacons, tracking pixels, and other technologies (collectively, “Tools”) to improve your Site experience. A cookie is a file containing text that is placed on your computer’s hard drive when you visit certain websites. With cookies in place, our system will recognize you whenever you use your web browser to connect to our Site. This enables us to present you with custom web pages and otherwise improve your user experience.

Disabling cookies may prevent you from using certain features of the Site such as registering or placing orders. If you choose not to take advantage of these interactive features, you can set up your browser to reject cookies or to alert you when a cookie has been sent. The “Help” section of your browser will tell you how to prevent your browser from accepting cookies. To find out more about cookies, including how to see what cookies have been set and how to manage or delete them, visit

We may use tools that collect information about your online activities over time and across third-party websites or other online services (behavioral tracking) for our marketing purposes.

There is no accepted standard on how to respond to Do Not Track signals, and we do not respond to such signals.

Transfer of Data to Other Countries

The Site is maintained in the United States. Any information you provide to EditCo may be stored, processed, transferred between, and accessed from the United States and other countries, which may not guarantee the same level of protection as the one in which you reside. You explicitly consent and agree to such transfer, storing and/or processing of your information outside the country in which you reside. You understand that data stored in the United States may be subject to lawful requests by the courts or law enforcement authorities in the United States. Nevertheless, EditCo will handle information from or about you in accordance with this Privacy Policy regardless of where that information is stored.

Other Websites

This Privacy Policy applies only to this Site. This Site may contain links to other websites. When you use these links to leave this Site, you should note that we do not have any control over that other website. Therefore, we cannot be responsible for the protection and privacy of any information which you provide while visiting such websites, and such websites are not governed by this Privacy Policy. You should exercise caution and review the privacy policy applicable to the website in question.


We have implemented administrative, physical, and technical measures, appropriate to the risk, to safeguard your information against accidental or unlawful destruction, loss or alteration and unauthorized disclosure or access. All of our website communications are HTTPS based, and provide end to end encryption for any data flowing between EditCo and the browser. We also use both passwords and usernames to authenticate users on certain portions of our website (i.e. to verify the identity of each registered user). Users are responsible for maintaining the secrecy of their own passwords.

However, no security can be 100% effective, so we cannot guarantee the security of information we maintain. No Internet or email transmission is ever fully secure or error free. Email or other communications sent through this Site may not be secure. You should use caution whenever submitting information through this Site and take care in deciding what information you provide to us. If you have reason to believe that your interaction with us is no longer secure (for example, if you feel that the security of any account you might have with us has been compromised), please immediately notify us by contacting us at

Retention of Information

EditCo retains the information that we collect about you for as long as reasonably necessary for the purposes set out in this Privacy Policy. We also may retain your information for a longer period of time on the basis of our legitimate interests in providing or marketing our services to you or as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, to resolve disputes, and to enforce our agreements. Even if we delete some or all of your information, we may continue to retain and use information that has been aggregated or anonymized so that it can no longer be used for personal identification.

Opting Out

If you do not wish to receive certain communications from us, you may opt out by (1) declining to provide us with information about you when registering or at other information gathering points on this Site, or (2) informing us that you no longer wish to receive such communications by emailing us at, or (3) unsubscribing from our promotional emails via the link provided in the emails, unless such communications from us are required by law or contract or do not require your consent under applicable laws. Even if you opt out of receiving promotional messages from us, you will continue to receive administrative messages from us. If you choose not to provide us with information we collect, you may not be able to access certain of our products or services.

Please see Cookies and Other Tools; Do Not Track above.

Children's Privacy

We do not knowingly collect personal information from individuals under the age of 13. If you are under the age of 13, please do not submit any personal information through this Site. If you have reason to believe that we may have accidentally received personal information from an individual under age 13, please contact us immediately at

Access and Correction of Information

You may at any time request access to a summary of personal information from or about you held by us, and request corrections or updates to that information. We will make reasonable efforts to respond promptly to such requests for information in accordance with local laws. Our response to such requests will be limited to information under our direct control.

If you believe that any information we are holding on you is incorrect or incomplete, please write to or email us as soon as possible at We will promptly correct any information found to be incorrect.
