OpConnect, Inc (“OCI”) has created this statement to describe its information gathering and privacy practices. We are sensitive to the private nature of information you provide to us over the Internet. This Privacy Policy is designed to maximize your ability to protect your personal information, while at the same time permit us to provide you the opportunity to obtain interesting and useful information, products and services. At no time are you obligated to provide us any personal information, and if at any time you no longer wish to receive communications from us, you are free to “opt out” of receiving these communications. Because this Privacy Policy applies to any person who provides information to OCI through its web site, or to information gathered from use of our electric vehicle charging stations, we strongly urge you to review this Privacy Policy in its entirety. Your use of this web site and/or our electric vehicle charging stations constitutes acceptance of this Privacy Policy and any other applicable terms.

OUR COLLECTION OF YOUR INFORMATION

We may also conduct online surveys or surveys through our electric vehicle charging stations that may ask you for contact information, demographic information, and lifestyle-related information (like your hobbies, favorite athletic teams, buying preferences, etc.). We may also have promotions in which we ask you for contact information and demographic information. We may also collect the Internet Protocol address and e-mail address of visitors to our web site, the e-mail addresses of those who post messages to a bulletin board, and the e-mail addresses of those who communicate with us via e-mail.

Web site usage information does not contain personally identifiable information. Our electric vehicle charging stations also record information on the location of the charging station used to deliver the charge to the vehicle, the user initiating the vehicle charge, the duration of time and date and time that the vehicle was charged, and the amount of energy that was delivered to the vehicle. Charging station usage information is not anonymous and does contain personally identifiable information.

CHILDREN’S GUIDELINES

OCI does not specifically target its online services to children under 15 years old. If you are under the age of 15 you may use our web site only under the supervision of a parent or guardian. Please note that our site may contain links to content providers that collect information from children under the age of 15. We have no control over such content providers and are not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of other web sites.

COOKIES

Our site uses cookies to keep track of your favorite locations. We use cookies to deliver content specific to your interests, to save your password so you do not have to re-enter it each time you visit our site, and for other purposes. Cookies are lines of text that are transmitted to your Web browser when you click on a site. They provide a way for a server to recall a previous request or previous registration so that information does not have to be reinserted. Your browser stores the information on your hard drive and when you return to that site later, the cookie is transmitted back only to the servers that originally sent it to you. A cookie does not collect or keep your name or other personally identifying information; however, we may link the information obtained through cookies to other personally identifiable information to give us a better understanding of your preferences, so that we can provide a more meaningful experience to you on our web site. To be notified when you are about to receive a cookie, you can configure your browser to alert you when a site is attempting to send you a cookie and at that time you will have the option of refusing the cookie. Consult your browser’s “Help” function for more information. Advertisers that serve ads on our web site may also use their own cookies. These cookies collect their own information independent of OCI’s activities. You can disable this cookie capability as described above. We use an independent ad company to display ads on our site. These ads may contain cookies. Cookies received with banner ads are collected by the ad company, and although we do not have access to this information, some customer data may be shared with the advertisers.
