Personal Information “Personal information,” as used in this policy, is information that specifically identifies an individual, such as an individual’s name, address, telephone number, or e-mail address. Personal information may also include information about an individual’s activities, such as, without limitation, information about his or her activity on WebSiteName.Com, home ownership, home statistics, home energy usage or utility provider. It may also include demographic information, such as date of birth, geographic area, and preferences, when any of this information is linked to personal information that identifies that individual. Personal information does not include aggregated or other non-personally identifiable information that we may share with our corporate partners or others. Aggregated information is general information that we collect about a group or category of products, services or customers and does not contain any personally identifiable information that could be used to contact or identify you. We may use and disclose aggregated information, and other non-personally identifiable information, for various purposes.
Information We Collect
Information we get from your use of our website. When you visit WebSiteName.Com, some information is automatically collected, such as your IP address, browser type, system type, the content and pages that you access on WebSiteName.Com, “referring URL” (i.e., the page from which you navigated to the WebSiteName.Com), the pages you navigate to on WebSiteName.Com, and from which you leave WebSiteName.Com, as well as the time you spend on WebSiteName.Com. Certain information such as your city and country we derive from collecting your IP Address. Other information such as what kind of device you are visiting our site on (i.e. mobile phone versus desktop computer), we derive from your browser type.

We use passively-collected information to administer, operate, and improve WebSiteName.Com and our other services and systems, and to provide services and content that are tailored to you. If we link or associate any information gathered through passive means with personal information, we treat the combined information as personal information under this policy. Otherwise, we use information collected by passive means in non-personally identifiable form only. Also, please be aware that third parties may set cookies on your hard drive or use other means of passively collecting information about your use of their services or content. We do not have access to, or control over, these third-party means of passive data collection.
Personal Information you give us. We may also collect personal information from you, specifically information that you provide to us in a variety of ways on WebSiteName.Com. For example, when you request a consultation/quote, post a request for information about products or services, request support, or otherwise communicate with us, we collect the personal information that is provided to us. We may collect personal information such as name, e-mail address, city, state, country, other demographic or geographic information as well as information about your home and home energy usage, and interests and preferences in these manners. We may also save and store an html version of the page in which you submitted a request for information for compliance purposes.

By submitting your personal information when requesting a solar consultation/quote via WebSiteName.Com, you agree that such act constitutes express written consent to be contacted by us or any third parties that we may share your personal information with. Notwithstanding that your telephone or wireless/mobile phone number that you provided to us may be listed on the Federal Trade Commission’s “Do-Not-Call” List or any state “Do-Not-Call” list, you have authorized us (and any third parties that we may share your personal information) to contact you at such telephone or wireless/mobile phone number in accordance with the Amended Telemarketing Sales Rule, 16 CFR §310 et seq., as amended from time to time and any applicable Federal Communications Commission’s laws or rules and any applicable state telemarketing laws or rules. Please note that if we contact you and you request that WebSiteName.Com will no longer contact you via telephone, we record your name on a separate “Do Not Call” list maintained by the operators of us. We honor your “Do Not Call” request within a reasonable time from the date of your request, in any event, not to exceed thirty days from the date you make such request. Once we place your name on our internal “Do Not Call” list, we will no longer contact you via telephone (unless you submit another inquiry or request another consultation/quote from us subsequent to your initial request). However, we may still contact you via the email or direct mailing address that you provided to us in your submission (or collected from third party sources), pursuant to the terms of this policy.
We allow you to opt-out from receiving other communications from us as described in the “opt out” section below. Please note that our process to honor your “Do Not Call” request impacts only calls made by us or by those entities on our behalf. You may still receive telephone calls from third parties to whom we have shared your personal information (if at all) regarding their products and services in which case you will need to request that those parties not call you, on a case-by-case basis.
Selling Personal Information We are a marketing company and are in the business of selling personal information about our users and visitors to third parties, such as, without limitation, home improvement contractors.
