Illuminating your path towards energy independence
Shift Power Solutions, Inc (Shift) is dedicated to protecting the privacy of its partners and customers. This Policy explains how Shift collects, uses, and discloses information about you when you register with us and visit our Web sites. Your use or receipt of Shift information (including our Web sites) constitutes acceptance of this Policy.
In discussing the types of information we collect from customers and visitors to our Web sites, it is important to distinguish between two categories of information. We use "Customer Information" as a broad, general term that refers to any information relating to you or your Shift products or services, including Commerce Information and Web Site Information. These terms are defined in more detail below:
"Commerce Information" means Personally Identifiable Information that enables a commerce partner to fulfill your request to participate in a promotion or transaction. From time to time, we may present email offers or enable you to buy goods and services from us or third parties. Only if you take advantage of such an offer or engage in a transaction, will we collect and send information such as your name and address and your interest in a specific offer or transaction to the sponsor of the promotion or transaction. In addition to fulfilling your request, that commerce partner may also use your Commerce Information to send you other information in which you might be interested consistent with its own privacy policies.
If you are uncomfortable with cookies, you may disable them on your computer. Disabling cookies may affect user functionality but the design of the SHIFT Web site allows access to most offerings with cookies disabled.
If you subscribe to electronic newsletters from SHIFT, we keep your e-mail address on file.
Aggregate information about Web site visitors: We create aggregate reports of visitors to our Web site to measure the performance of our sites. These reports do not contain Customer Information.
We use Customer Information supplied to us to help understand what our customers want. We use Customer Information only in the aggregate, and not in a manner specifically relating to any piece of data’s respective source, for, at our sole discretion, any one or combination of the following purposes: editorializing, providing feedback, affecting legislative or regulatory policy, marketing and promotion, statistical analysis, product development and other business related purposes.
We share Customer Information with third parties where it is necessary to conduct a legitimate business activity related to serving our or our partners’ customers.
We may share Customer Information, including product interests or purchases, with our business partners who may use this Customer Information to market products or services to you or in which you have expressed interest.
When you elect to participate in a special offer or engage in a transaction with SHIFT or a third party advertiser or promoter through the SHIFT Web site, we will collect and disclose your Commerce Information to the party sponsoring or fulfilling the promotion. This information is disclosed only upon your affirmative response to an offer. In addition to fulfilling your request, that party may also use your Commerce Information to send you other information in which you might be interested consistent with its own privacy policies.
We may share Customer Information with third parties to meet legal requirements or where permitted by law to protect our rights and property. For example, we may be asked to disclose certain Customer Information in response to a subpoena or court order. In most cases where disclosure is being made pursuant to legal process, we will provide you with prior notice of such subpoena or court order so that you have the opportunity to contest in a court proceeding the subpoena or court order.
You may further opt not to receive communications that we send to you based on your Commerce Information or Web site Information. If you make this choice, you understand that we will not be able to inform you about any upcoming features, improvements, or promotions regarding SHIFT, its products and partners. In all cases, however, we will collect and use your information for legitimate business purposes.
We maintain information about you for as long as we or our partners provide service to you, and longer for related business activities. After information is no longer necessary for our business purposes, we destroy the information unless there is an outstanding request or order to preserve the information.
We take reasonable steps to protect Customer Information by using security technologies and procedures that limit access to our databases. However, no system is completely secure or error-free. We do not, and cannot, guarantee the complete security of Customer Information.
The Communications Act, 47 U.S.C. § 338(i), governs our practices concerning the collection and disclosure of personally identifiable information about you. If you believe we have violated the provisions of the Communications Act, you may bring an action for damages, reasonable attorneys’ fees, and costs. By using these Web sites you agree that claims such as these will be resolved by binding arbitration.
