Like most website operators, Zep Solar 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. Zep Solar’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how our visitors use its website. From time to time, Zep Solar may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website. Zep Solar also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. Zep Solar does not use such information to identify its visitors, however, and does not disclose such information, other than under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information, as described below.
GATHERING OF PERSONALLY-IDENTIFYING INFORMATION
Certain visitors to Zep Solar’s websites choose to interact with Zep Solar in ways that require Zep Solar to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Zep Solar gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for our mailing list to provide personal information. In this case, Zep Solar collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Zep Solar. Zep Solar 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.
Zep Solar may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, Zep Solar may monitor the most popular pages on our websites or use spam screened by anti-spam services to help identify spam. Zep Solar may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Zep Solar does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
