How does ENER-GIE.com use this information?

Our policy about using personal information is simple: Except as described in this Policy, ENER-GIE.com will not disclose or sell any of the personal information you provide to any third parties.

We may disclose information about our users when we are required to by law, or when we have reason to believe that someone is causing injury to or interfering with our rights or property, other ENER-GIE.com users, or anyone else who could be harmed by those activities.



How does ENER-GIE.com protect my personal information?

We make every effort to ensure that your information is secure on our system. Only those employees who need access to your information in order to do their jobs are allowed access.

ENER-GIE.com sometimes asks for your credit card information in order to provide you with goods or services that you request. This information is securely stored on our computers (also called \"servers\"). Credit card transactions take place only on servers that offer a high level of security. These transactions are handled by a third-party financial institution, Kable Fulfillment Services of Ohio, Inc., which receives the credit card number and other personal information you provide in order to verify the credit card number and process the transaction. This third party has agreed to use your personal information only for this purpose, to take steps to preserve your privacy and to protect the security of this personal information, and not to sell or disclose the information to any other third party.

We do not collect personal information for the purpose of credit card transactions from users under the age of 13 and no personal information from children under 13 is shared with any third-party service provider.

Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, we cannot guarantee the security of any information you transmit to use. You do so at your own risk. You should always be careful and smart about the information you provide on-line. Remember, whenever you voluntarily provide personal information through E-mail, that information can be collected and used by others.
