2. Use of the Subscription Service by Encentiv Energy and our Customers

2.1. The Encentiv Energy Subscription Service

Our Subscription Service allows any company that uses it (our customers and Encentiv Energy itself) to quickly access the most up-to-date information about energy efficiency incentive and financing programs (Programs). This information, which is stored and managed on our service providers’ servers, may be used so that the visitors can be contacted about their interest in the company’s services and interact with the company. Encentiv Energy provides the Subscription Service to our customers for the purpose of increasing access to these Programs, which accelerates the sale and installation of energy efficiency equipment.

2.2. Use by Encentiv Energy

We use our own Subscription Service to build webpages that people can visit to learn more about Encentiv Energy and the Programs. Information that we collect and manage using the Subscription Service for our own marketing belongs to us and is used, disclosed and protected according to this Privacy Policy.

2.3. Use by Our Customers

Our customers use the Subscription Service to help increase the sales of energy efficiency equipment in commercial buildings. Encentiv Energy does not control the types of information that our customers may choose to collect or manage using the Subscription Service.

Encentiv Energy processes our customers’ information as they direct and in accordance with our agreements with our customers, and we store it on our service providers’ servers, but we do not have control over its collection or management. Our agreements with our customers limit our use of that information, including as necessary to provide and improve the Subscription Service, as permitted by this Privacy Policy, and as required by law. We have no direct relationship with individuals who provide Personal Information to our customers. Our customers control and are responsible for correcting, deleting or updating information they have collected from you using the Subscription Service. We may work with our customers to help them provide notice to their visitors about their data collection, processing and usage. We are not responsible for our customers’ use of information they collect on the Subscription Service.

We use “cookies” to help you personalize your online experience. A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by a Web server. Cookies are not used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you, and can only be read by a Web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you. One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. The purpose of a cookie is to tell the Web server that you have returned to a specific page. For example, if you personalize pages on our Websites, or register for the Subscription Service, a cookie helps us to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. When you return to the same Website, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the customized features.

You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most Web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of the Encentiv Energy Subscription Service or Websites you visit. Encentiv Energy keeps track of the Websites and pages you visit within Encentiv Energy, in order to determine what portion of the Encentiv Energy Website or Subscription Service is the most popular or most used. This data is used to deliver customized content and promotions within the Encentiv Energy Website and Subscription Service to customers whose behavior indicates that they are interested in a particular subject area.

5.2. Log Files
