Privacy Policy

The Energy Future Coalition is committed to protecting the privacy and security of visitors to our website. Outlined below is our online Privacy Policy for information collected through our website and email list. If you have questions about these policies, we encourage you to talk to us by email.

By visiting our website, you are accepting the practices described in this privacy policy (the “Privacy Policy”). The Energy Future Coalition reserves the right to change this Privacy Policy at any time by posting such change here. Your continued use of the website after such change is made constitutes acceptance of and agreement to be bound by the terms of the Privacy Policy as modified. The Energy Future Coalition collects information from our users at several different points on our web site.

We do not share, sell or otherwise disclose any personal information including your name, address, or email addresses with other organizations. We do not collect any personally identifiable information about you unless you voluntarily submit such information to us, by, for example, filling out a survey or registration form. Only Energy Future Coalition staff and our authorized agents have access to personally identifiable information provided by visitors to our site.

Privacy of Email Addresses
Our web site does not automatically recognize your email address. We ask for your email address on a number of pages within our site, but you may opt out of email communications at any time by clicking the unsubscribe link that is included at the bottom of every email communication from the Energy Future Coalition. You may also email us at anytime to be removed.

Browser Information Collected on Our Website
As with any website operator, we analyze our website logs to constantly improve the value of our website. We use an external service to provide real-time reporting to us and our authorized agents of browser accesses to our site. This reporting includes page views, unique views, unique visitors, repeat visitors, frequency of visits, and peak-volume traffic periods. We do not use this service to gather, request, record, require, collect or track any Internet users’ personally identifiable information.

If a user elects to use our referral service for informing a friend about our site, we ask them for the friend’s name and email address. The Energy Future Coalition will automatically send the friend a one-time email inviting them to visit the site. The Energy Future Coalition will store this information for the sole purpose of sending this one-time email and will not use their email for other purposes.

This privacy statement discloses the privacy practices for the Energy Future Coalition. The Energy Future Coalition is committed to the privacy of those individuals who visit and interact with and follows these practices.

If a user wishes to subscribe to our newsletter, we ask for contact information such as name and email address. The Energy Future Coalition may ask for additional information, such as content preferences. This information is used to contact the user/subscriber about the news for which they have expressed an interest. It is optional for the user/subscriber to provide demographic information (such as country, or zip code), but encouraged so that we can provide a more personalized and customized experience on the Energy Future Coalition site.

Surveys & Quizzes
From time-to-time the Energy Future Coalition may request information from users via surveys or quizzes–generally as part of our continuing efforts to improve our family of web sites. Participation in these surveys or quizzes is completely voluntary. Information requested may include contact information (such as name and postal address), and demographic information (such as zipcode, age level). This information will be used for purposes of monitoring or improving our sites.

Log Files
The Energy Future Coalitionuses the IP address from your Internet connection to analyze trends, administer the site, track users’ movements, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. IP addresses are not linked to any personally identifiable information.

The Energy Future Coalition may share aggregated demographic information with our site partners.

The Energy Future Coalition partners with other parties to provide specific services, such as our email newsletter. When the user signs up for these services, we will only share names or other contact information that is necessary for the third party to provide these services. These parties are not allowed to use personally identifiable information except for the purpose of providing these services. This is not linked to any personal information that can identify any individual person.

The Energy Future Coalition web site contains links to other sites. Please be aware that we are not responsible for the privacy practices of other sites. We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our site to read the privacy statements of each and every web site that collects personally identifiable information. This privacy statement applies solely to information collected by this web site.

Notification of Changes
If the Energy Future Coalition decides to change our privacy policy, we will post those changes to this page so our users are always aware of what information we collect and how we use it. Users will have a choice as to whether or not we use their information in this different manner. We will use information in accordance with the privacy policy under which the information was collected.
