Privacy Policy

Your privacy is very important to us.

We want to make your experience on the Internet as enjoyable and rewarding as possible, and we want you to use the Internet's vast array of information, tools, and opportunities with complete confidence. 

We have created this Privacy Policy to demonstrate our firm commitment to privacy and security. This Privacy Policy describes how Kilowatt Ours collects information from those who access our site but do not have accounts ("Visitors") as well as those who may register in order to participate in certain areas of our site ("Members")-what we do with the information we collect, and the choices Visitors and Members have concerning the collection and use of such information. We request that you read this Privacy Policy carefully. 

Personal Information We Collect and How It Is Used

Introduction

Kilowatt Ours collects information in different ways from Visitors and Members who access the various network of our Web sites. We use this information primarily to provide a customized experience and do not share this information with third parties. However, we may disclose personal information collected if we have received your permission beforehand or in very special circumstances, such as when we believe that such disclosure is required by law or other special cases described below. 

Registration

Members may be asked to provide certain personal information when they sign up as Members or make donations; including name, address, telephone number, billing information (such as a credit card number), and the type of personal computer being used. The personal information collected from Members during the registration process is used to manage each Member's account. This information is not shared with third parties, unless specifically stated otherwise or in special circumstances.

Online Advertisements

Kilowatt Ours may display our online advertisements. In those cases we share aggregated and non-identifying information about our Visitors and Members collected through the registration process as well as through online surveys and promotions with these advertisers. 

Responses to Email Inquiries

When Visitors or Members send email inquiries to Kilowatt Ours, the return email address is used to answer the email inquiry we receive. Kilowatt Ours does not use the return email address for any other purpose and does not share the return email address with any third party. 

Voluntary Surveys

We may periodically conduct both Visitor and/or Member surveys. We encourage our Visitors and Members to participate in these surveys because they provide us with important information that helps us to improve your user experience. Your personal information and responses will remain strictly confidential, even if the survey is conducted by a third party. Participation in our surveys is voluntary. 

However, we may disclose personal information about Visitors or Members for any reason if, in our sole discretion, we believe that it is reasonable to do so, including: credit agencies, collection agencies, merchant database agencies, law enforcement, or to satisfy laws, such as the Electronic Communications Privacy Act, the Child Online Privacy Act, regulations, or governmental or legal requests for such information; to disclose information that is necessary to identify, contact, or bring legal action against someone who may be violating our Acceptable Use Policy or Terms Of Service, or other user policies; or to protect Kilowatt Ours and our Members. 

"Cookies" and How Kilowatt Ours Uses Them.

A "cookie" is a small data file that can be placed on your hard drive when you visit certain Web sites. Kilowatt Ours may use cookies to collect, store, and sometimes track information for statistical purposes to improve our user experience. 

If you are a Visitor or Member we may use a cookie to save your settings and to provide customizable and personalized user experience. These cookies do not enable third parties to access any of your customer information. Additionally, be aware that if you visit other Web sites where you are prompted to log in or that are customizable, you may be required to accept cookies. 

Advertisers and partners may also use their own cookies. We do not control use of these cookies and expressly disclaim responsibility for information collected through them. 

Kilowatt Ours' Commitment to Children's Privacy.

Protecting children's privacy is especially important to us. It is our policy to comply with the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998 and all other applicable laws. Therefore we restrict our Web site to persons eighteen years or older.

YOU MUST BE EIGHTEEN (18) YEARS OR OLDER TO ACCESS THIS WEB SITE. IF YOU ARE UNDER EIGHTEEN YEARS OF AGE, YOU ARE NOT PERMITTED TO ACCESS THIS WEB SITE FOR ANY REASON. DUE TO THE AGE RESTRICTIONS FOR USE OF THIS WEB SITE, NO INFORMATION OBTAINED BY THIS WEB SITE, FALLS WITHIN THE CHILD ONLINE PRIVACY ACT (COPA) AND IS NOT MONITORED AS DOING SO. 

Public Forums

Please remember that any information you may disclose in any Member Directory, or other public areas of our Web sites or the Internet, becomes public information. You should exercise caution when deciding to disclose personal information in these public areas. 

Kilowatt Ours' Commitment to Data Security

Web sites we sponsor have security measures in place to protect the loss, misuse, and alteration of the information under our control. While we make every effort to ensure the integrity and security of our network and systems, we cannot guarantee that our security measures will prevent third-party "hackers" from illegally obtaining this information.
