This website provides quick and easy access to the Ethecom Ethereum smart contracts. You do not need to use this website in order to interact with the contract, but it does make things a lot easier. We reserve the right to change any aspect of the website, the smart contracts, the game rules or game mechanics at any time. We will endeavour to announce these changes in our Discord channel, but this is not guaranteed.
All payments are made via MetaMask on the Ethereum network. When you make a purchase on Ethecom you are acquiring ownership of the asset purchased. You will pay an Ethereum transaction fee when making payments, known as a "Gas Fee". We do not control this fee, and it can be heavily influenced by network congestion. Anyone can buy your asset at the price specified by Ethecom contracts unless you have super privilege to permanently own it. You also authorize us to deduct a 1.8% to 10% handling fee from the transaction. We will do this automatically via the smart contract when processing the transaction. We reserve the right to increase or decrease this handling fee without prior consent, although we do commit to provide as much advance warning of fee changes as possible. We will not be liable to any parties for claims of loss for any transaction conducted via our smart contract. We are not able to refund any fees.

The Data Protection Act 1998 and the Information Commissioner requires all Data Controllers to take the issue of security very seriously. This is the Security Statement of Ethecom.
1. We have a management and corporate commitment to information security within the organisation and provide clear direction, guidance and responsibilities and procedures in this respect.
2. The company has a compliance officer who deals with security of information and personal data.
3. All employees are briefed on the importance of personal data and security and confidentiality of information obtained.

We control physical security in relation to the information and personal data that is contained at our facilities and restrict access to the site, buildings, computer rooms, office desk, technology areas, equipment and other facilities where unauthorised access by people could compromise our security.
5. All proprietary or confidential information, including personal data, is contained or stored on computer and any that is contained and stored on manual files are locked up and secure.
