We are committed to protecting your privacy while using electricities.com. This policy describes the ways that personally identifiable and anonymous information about our users is gathered, our information sharing practices, and how users may request changes to the way this information is shared.
ElectriCities is the sole owner of the information collected on electricities.com. ElectriCities collects information from our users at several different points on our Web site.
Users are not required to register in order to use the site. In order to receive email notifications of news stories, a user must first complete the email list registration form. During registration a user is required to give contact information (such as name and email address). We use this information to contact the user about services on our site for which he has expressed interest. It is necessary for the user to provide unique identifiers (such as name, member city, position title) so we can properly fulfill requests.
We request information from the user on our order form. A user must provide contact information only (such as name, email, and shipping address). This information is used to fill customer’s orders. If we have trouble processing an order, the information is used to contact the user.
A user may provide contact information (such as name, email, and telephone number) on our contact form when making comments or asking questions. This information is used to respond to the user in addressing their questions or concerns.
Log Files and Cookies
Like most standard Web site servers we use log files and cookies for the purpose of analyzing user trends and FOR THAT PURPOSE ONLY. This includes internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, platform type, date/time stamp, and number of clicks to analyze trends, administer the site, track user’s movement in the aggregate, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. IP addresses, etc. are not linked to personally identifiable information.
Communications from the Site
If a user wishes to subscribe to our news update email list, we ask for contact information such as name and email address. Out of respect for our users privacy we provide a way to opt-out of these communications. Please see the Choice and Opt-out sections.
On rare occasions it is necessary to send out a strictly service related announcement. For instance, if our service is temporarily suspended for maintenance we might send users an email. Generally, users may not opt-out of these communications, though they can ask for their name to be removed from our communications list thus eliminating any future contact from us. Please be advised, however, that these communications are not promotional in nature.
We communicate with users on a regular basis to provide requested services and in regards to issues relating to their account we reply via email or phone, in accordance with the user’s wishes.
Though we make every effort to preserve user privacy, we may need to disclose personal information when required by law wherein we have a good-faith belief that such action is necessary to comply with a current judicial proceeding, a court order or legal process served on our Web site.
Aggregate Information (non-personally identifiable)
We share aggregated demographic information with our partners and advertisers. [Describe the sharing practices of what your site does, but be specific in your relationship with these third parties.] This is not linked to any personally identifiable information.
Third Party Intermediaries
We use outside shipping companies to ship orders. These companies do not retain, share, store or use personally identifiable information for any secondary purposes.
In the event ElectriCities goes through a business transition, such as a merger, being acquired by another company, or selling a portion of its assets, users' personal information will, in most instances, be part of the assets transferred.
