Earth4energy Inc. ("Earth4energy") operates Earth4energy.org and may operate other websites. It is Earth4energy's policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.
Like most website operators, Earth4energy collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Earth4energy's purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Earth4energy's visitors use its website. From time to time, Earth4energy may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
Earth4energy also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on Earth4energy.org blogs/sites. Earth4energy only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that commenter IP addresses and email addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog/site where the comment was left.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to Earth4energy's websites choose to interact with Earth4energy in ways that require Earth4energy to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Earth4energy gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up at Earth4energy.org to provide a username and email address. Those who engage in transactions with Earth4energy are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, Earth4energy collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor's interaction with Earth4energy. Earth4energy does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.
Earth4energy may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. Earth4energy may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Earth4energy does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
Earth4energy discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on Earth4energy's behalf or to provide services available at Earth4energy's websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using Earth4energy's websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Earth4energy will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, Earth4energy discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Earth4energy believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Earth4energy, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an Earth4energy website and have supplied your email address, Earth4energy may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what's going on with Earth4energy and our products. If you send us a request (for example via email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. Earth4energy takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
If Earth4energy, or substantially all of its assets, were acquired, or in the unlikely event that Earth4energy goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of Earth4energy may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.
