SharePrivacy Policy

This Privacy Policy was last updated on October 28, 2010.

The Canadian Energy Efficiency Alliance (CEEA) is committed to preserving your privacy and safeguarding your sensitive information. This document describes the general information gathering and usage practices of CEEA's website, www.energyefficiency.org.

We are committed to protecting your privacy online and maintaining your expectation of trust while visiting our website. In some limited circumstances, we may be required to disclose information that is collected on our website(s). Those circumstances include requests for information from law enforcement agencies or requests to produce information in compliance with a subpoena or judicial order. We may also disclose personal information to protect and defend our rights and property, or when necessary to protect our interests, our website(s), or the safety of the public or our users.

Anonymous Information that We Collect

We track information about visits to our site so we can make informed decisions about design, layout, accessibility, and usability. We use this information to learn about our visitors as a group, not about any individual. We log the domain names and/or IP addresses of visitors which identifies where visitors are from, or what access service they use, without knowing their individual identities. We may also collect data on the types of browsers and operating systems used to access the site, the date, time and duration of visits, and the pages that were visited.

Because we do not require users to register with us, this "host level" tracking is our primary basis for assessing the popularity of different areas of the site, determining what our users are looking for, and any usage trends. We use this information to improve the design and content of our site, determine when to schedule maintenance, improve our site performance, and identify other websites which send us visitors. Please note that our sites link to other websites that are not under our control—we cannot be responsible for the content or the Privacy Policies of those websites.

Personal Information You Choose to Provide

We do not collect personally identifiable information about individual users except when those individuals specifically provide it. The information may include names, addresses, phone numbers, fax numbers, email addresses, or other personal data in greater or lesser detail. We use this information for the purpose of corresponding with the sender, such as providing users with one of CEEA's newsletters, or for the purpose stated in the accompanying text where we collect the information.

Should you choose to provide your information, it may be shared within our family of organizations and other closely aligned groups for the purpose of responding to any comments or questions you submit and to provide any follow-up information about our organizations and our issues. It also may be shared with an outside company to fulfill any request you have made to us (such as charging a credit card for an event). We make no effort to link the personal information you voluntarily provide to us with the site usage information we have collected during your visit to our site(s).

"Cookies" and How We Use Them

A cookie is a small file sent to your browser by a website's computer. Your browser places the "cookie" on your hard drive for record-keeping purposes and sometimes to track information about you. We currently do not use or require cookies.

How We Protect Your Information

We currently do not offer online transactions requesting your billing information.
