When you elect to “contact us,” we may also obtain additional information including your phone number, address and company name. We utilize this information to respond to individual inquiries as appropriate. By providing your contact information and/or viewing our web and email information, you consent to the establishment of an “opt-in business relationship” between you and The Utility Connection.
The Utility Connection also collects limited non-personally identifying information your browser customarily makes available whenever you visit any website on the Internet or open an e-mail. This information may include your Internet Protocol address, browser type, browser language, the date and time of your access and one or more cookies that may uniquely identify your browser. We use this information on an aggregate basis, to analyze the readership trends of our e-mails and access to our publishing services. Although your privacy is very important to us, in this legal and technical environment, we cannot fully ensure that your personally identifiable information will not be disclosed to third parties. For example, we may be compelled to disclose your information to a governmental agency or a court; or third parties may unlawfully intercept or access transmissions or private communications. Additionally, we may (and you authorize us to do so) disclose any information about you to private entities, law enforcement or other government officials, as we, in our sole discretion, believe necessary or appropriate to investigate or resolve possible problems or inquiries or to protect our own business and assets. In such circumstances, we will, where possible, require such third parties to maintain the confidentiality of any information so disclosed.
Non-personal information may be compiled for statistical purposes and provided to third parties. However, none of this non-personal data will include individually identifiable information.
The Utility Connection diligently works to insure the integrity and security of our network and systems. The Utility Connection, however, cannot guarantee that our security measures will totally prevent third-party “hackers” from illegally obtaining access to such information.
The Utility Connection may change this Policy at any time, and any changes will be effective immediately upon posting to this site. We expect that most changes will be minor. However, from time to time the changes can be significant. Please check back regularly to ensure you read and understand our current privacy practices.
