The type of personal information we collect  includes your contact information, such as your name, address, telephone number, and email address, and certain other information you may provide to us in your communications.

We also collect the following types of information from you automatically: IP address, information about your web browser software and version, and, if you arrived at the Sites via a link from a third-party website, the URL of the linking page; and your activity on the websites, such as which pages you choose to view, queries you make using our “search”  function, and other information about your account usage.

Use of Cookies and Other Technologies

When you visit our Sites, we may store some information on your computer in  the form of a “cookie” and similar technologies that allow us to remember you when you return to the Sites or that stores information that we can retrieve each time you access the Sites. We use these technologies, for example, to tailor our Sites to better match your interests and preferences. With most Internet browsers, you may erase cookies from your hard drive, block all cookies, or receive a warning before a cookie is stored. Please refer to your browser instructions or help screen to learn more about these functions. If you choose to block or delete cookies, some of the features on our Sites may not function, and this choice also may apply to other third-party websites.

Use of Information
When you provide us with personal information, we may use that information to respond to your inquiries; to contact you; to provide you with web casts; to better understand your needs and how we can improve our products and/or services; to prevent potentially illegal activities; to enforce our Terms of Use; and for other purposes that we describe to you at the point of collection or to which you consent.

We may combine personal information about you with other information we have collected (either automatically, based on your submission to us, or from another source).

To learn more about your choices with respect to these uses of information, please review the “Choices” section below.

  • Legal Matters.

Your Choices
As noted above, you can choose not to provide United Solar Ovonic with personal information.

Please note that we may send you other email communications, such as service announcements, transactional messages, and administrative notices, without offering you the opportunity to opt out of receiving them.

However, United Solar Ovonic has implemented commercially reasonable and appropriate administrative, technical, and physical security procedures to help protect the personal information that we store.

Third-Party Websites
Websites to which the Sites link do not operate under this Privacy Policy. We recommend that you examine the privacy statements posted on those other websites to understand their procedures for collecting, using, and disclosing your information.

Children’s Privacy
The Sites are general audience websites and are not designed for children under 13 years old. Accordingly, United Solar Ovonic will not knowingly collect personal information from children under 13.

If we learn we have collected personal information from a child under the age of 13, we will delete that information from our databases.

Changes to this Privacy Policy
We may update this Policy in the future including to reflect changes in our privacy practices or our Sites functionality, and our collection of personal information in the future will be governed by the version of this Policy that is in effect at the time. To assist you in determining whether the Policy has been changed, we will list the effective date of the policy at the top of the document. We will notify you about material changes to this Privacy Policy by sending a notice to the email address you provided to us or by placing a prominent notice on the Sites.
