PROTECTION OF YOUR PRIVACY
As described below, we do not collect personal information from visitors to our Website, except for information you intentionally provide in order to do business with us through the Website. We take steps to secure from misappropriation the information that you do provide and carefully control data gathering so that information collected to assist in improving customer experience on the Website is not identified with individual users.
We use industry-standard practices to protect personal information from loss, misuse, alteration, destruction, or unauthorized access. These practices include a combination of technical, operational, and managerial controls. Security mechanisms in place include, but are not limited to, firewalls, network monitoring and encryption to protect transmissions of sensitive information.
While we use commercially reasonable means to protect your Data, we cannot guarantee its absolute security, as no security system is fail-safe. Customers, business partners, and employees should protect the confidentiality of information such as an account number, Social Security number, email address, and password. Furthermore, customers, business partners and employees should be aware of “phishing” attempts to steal personal information. We will not at any time initiate a request for your account password, Social Security number, or bank information via email.
INFORMATION WE COLLECT
Personal Information. We only collect personal information (“Data”) you voluntarily provide to us, which is necessary to conduct business with us. The type of information collected will depend on the business relationship with us. Examples of information collected include:
- Identification information (e.g., name, Tax ID or Social Security number)
- Contact details (mailing, shipping or service address, email address, phone number)
- Usage data gathered from the meter
- Job title/position in your company and information related to your company, if you are acting in a professional context
- Payment information, including credit and/or debit card account numbers and any associated information (such as cardholder names, expiration dates, and services codes), if you order any products or services online
- Record or correspondence with you or your company
At any time, you may withdraw your consent or object to processing your information by contacting us at email@example.com. However, doing so may limit our ability to provide you with the services or options which you have requested.
Non-Personally Identifiable Information. We may also collect certain non-personally identifiable information (which does not reveal your specific identity or does not directly relate to an identifiable individual) by automatic means, including cookies and other tracking methods. Unless you have cookies “turned off” on your computer, when you visit our Website your computer may create a cookie that is stored in its temporary memory. These cookies may be deleted after you close your browser, and this information does not identify you personally. Our servers are able to automatically collect data from temporary cookies that tell us certain information about your visit during that session. Examples of information collected may include:
- the date and time you access our site;
- the pages you visit;
- the type of browser and operating system used to access our site;
- the address of the referring website, if you arrived at this Website from another website; and
- the Internet domain (.com, .edu, .gov, etc.) and IP address from which you access our site (an IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer whenever you are on the Internet).
This information is collected so we can compile and analyze usage data to help us make the Website more useful to visitors. Because we do not collect personally identifiable information (PII) about your online activities over time, our websites do not currently recognize “do not track” signals transmitted from web browsers, and we do not alter any of our data collection and use practices upon receipt of such a signal.
