The information generated by the cookie may also be aggregated and accessed by third parties who provide services related to the site.

New England Clean Energy Inc. also advertises on the Internet. In doing so, we use third party vendors, including Google, to show our ads on a variety of sites on the Internet. These third party vendors, including Google, Facebook, Instagram and Twitter use cookies and other technologies to serve ads based on a user’s prior visits to the site. Users may opt-out of Google’s use of cookies for this purpose by visiting the Google advertising opt-out page. You can opt-out of other third party vendors’ use of cookies for this purpose by visiting the Network Advertising Initiative opt-out page or via other opt-out and privacy options available on other social media services.

Personally Identifiable Information

When you visit our site you are not required to provide any personal information unless you choose to do so. Our web server will recognize the domain name/Internet Protocol (IP) address from which you are accessing this site and certain other technical facts (such as the operating system and web browser that you are using), but not your e-mail address or other personally identifying information. By using this site, you consent to the recognition of your domain name/IP address.

Personally identifiable information will not be collected unless you voluntarily send an email message or fill out and submit an online form (or live chat) or fill out and return a survey. Information provided in any of these or similar ways will be considered to be voluntarily provided by the visitor and will be treated in the same manner as information provided in written form.  You may of course choose not to participate in these activities and such a choice will not impair your ability to browse. However, it may impair your ability to access certain information or obtain services.

Financial information, such as data related to your payment method (e.g. valid credit card number, card brand, expiration date) may be collected when you purchase, order, return, exchange, or request information about our services from the Site or by email. In such cases, we store only very limited, if any, of such financial information. That is because typically all financial information is stored by our payment processors, such as SignNow, Square and Stripe, and you are encouraged to review their privacy policy and contact them directly should you have any questions.

Emails

Email messages, sent to any New England Clean Energy Inc. address, will be treated the same as any other written communication. They may be saved for a period of time before they are destroyed.

We encourage parents and guardians to spend time online with their children to observe, participate in and/or monitor and guide their online activity.

If a parent or guardian believes that New England Clean Energy, Inc. has in its database the personally-identifiable information of a child under the age of 13, please contact us immediately (using the contact information below) and we will use our best efforts to promptly remove such information from our records.
