This Privacy Policy does not apply to third-party websites, products or services, even if they link to our Sites. We recommend you review the privacy practices of those third parties before connecting accessing third party websites and sharing any personal information.

We also encourage you to review our Terms of Use and California Privacy Notice, to understand how your personal information will be treated as you make full use of our Sites. Unless otherwise defined in this Privacy Policy, capitalized terms used in this Privacy Policy have the same meanings as in our Terms of Use.

1. Collection of Personal Information

For purposes of this Privacy Policy, “personal information” means any information that relates to an identified or identifiable individual. The personal information we collect through our Sites will be apparent by the context of the page, and may include but is not limited to the following types of information.

a. Personal information you provide to us

We may collect the following personal information about you that you choose to provide us when you use our Sites:

  • Contact information. When you fill out an online webform with SolarRebater.com, you may be asked to provide your first and last name, email address, residential address, zip code, and phone number.
  • Commercial information. You may also be asked to provide various information related to your home and home energy usage, such as your utility provider, utility and average monthly electric bill, and the amount of solar exposure on your place of residence.

b. Information that we automatically collect

Our Sites use cookies and other tracking technologies such as web beacons, embedded scripts, and tags (“Cookies”), which collect information from you automatically as your use our Sites, including:

  • Browser and device data, such as IP address, device identifier, device type, operating system and Internet browser type, screen resolution, operating system name and version, device manufacturer and model, language, plug-ins, add-ons, and the language version of the Sites you are visiting; and
  • Usage data, such as geolocation data, browsing history, time spent on the Sites, pages visited, links clicked, language preferences, patterns of use, and the pages that led or referred you to our Site.

We also collect information about your online activities on websites and connected devices over time and across third-party websites, devices, apps, and other online features and services. For example, some of our community websites may use Google Analytics on our Sites to help us analyze your use of our Sites and diagnose technical issues. As another example, we may utilize cookies and other third party trackers that collect basic tracking information about users that click on links to our Promotions Providers’ websites from our Site.

Our website utilizes tracking technologies to collect and record your activities and movements across our websites throughout your browsing session, including to track button clicks, mouse movements, scrolling, resizing, touches, keystrokes, data entered, device information and orientation, browser visual elements, and screen size (“Session Data”), for purposes of our own internal analytics and improving our products, services, and user experience. Such tracking may include recorded sessions, which we may play back for these purposes. We may share Session Data with our third party analytics or service providers, which may change from time-to-time, for these purposes, who will use the Session Data solely on our behalf and for our benefit.

Please review our Cookie Policy below for more information about our use of these technologies.

3. Sharing of Personal Information

We may share your personal information with the following categories of third parties:

  1. Our affiliates. We may share personal information with our affiliates to provide our Sites and Services and for internal administrative purposes.
  2. Product/Service providers. We share personal information with our product/service providers, such as analytics, advertising, marketing, customer and technical support, and other services. These third parties have access to your personal information only to perform these tasks and are obligated not to disclose or use the information for any other purpose.
  3. Third-Parties. We share personal information, either directly or through intermediary agents and/or entities (including, lead aggregators and vendors to such businesses), with one or more third-party entities, such as solar and/or home improvement product/service providers, marketers of such products/services, and/or affiliate companies (collectively, including intermediaries, “Third-Parties”). For example, we may share personal information with Third-Parties for their direct marketing purposes. We may also share personal information with Third-Parties at a point in time after it is initially collected.
  4. Promotions Providers. In addition to Third-Parties, our Sites may also present offers for promotions for other products and services that may be of interest to you (“Promotions Providers”). We only share limited web tracking data with Promotions Providers if you choose to click on the hyperlinks we provide for their offers, which will take you to the Promotions Provider’s website.
  5. Third-party platform advertising. We may share your information with third-party platform providers who assist us in serving advertising regarding the Sites and Services to others who may be interested. We also partner with third parties (such as Facebook and Google) who use Cookies to serve interest-based advertising and content on their respective third-party platforms that may be based on your preferences, location and/or interests.
  6. Affiliate and business transfer. If SolarRebater.com is involved in a merger, acquisition or asset sale, your personal information may be transferred. We will provide notice before your personal information is transferred and becomes subject to a different privacy policy.

The selection of a Third-Party to acquire your personal information may be determined by a comparison with available products/services, including solar and/or home improvement-related products/services. The position of each potential purchaser may also be determined primarily by the price the purchaser is willing to pay for the information (e.g., the higher the price, the better the purchaser's position).

We may create aggregated, anonymous or de-identified data from personal information by removing data components that make the data personally identifiable to you or through obfuscation or other means. Our use of aggregated, anonymized and de-identified data is not subject to this Privacy Policy.
