At Distributed Solar Development, LLC (“DSD, “we,” “us”, or “our”) we take your privacy and the security of your information very seriously. This Privacy Policy (“Privacy Policy” or “Policy”) covers the site https://dsdrenewables.com/ (“Site”) and the services offered via the Site (collectively, the “Services”) including how we collect, use, store and transfer information via the Site. By using the Site, you consent the privacy practices described below.

This Privacy Policy is incorporated into, and is part of, our Terms of Use available at https://dsdrenewables.com/terms-of-use which govern your access to the Site and your use of the Site. Unless otherwise defined herein, capitalized terms shall have the meaning assigned to such terms in the Terms of Use.

If you have any questions regarding this Policy please contact us at privacy@dsdrenewables.com.

The Policy describes the types of information we gather from people visiting our Site and/or using our Services and from individual users (“you” or “users”) interacting with our Site and Services and how we use, transfer, and secure such information. This Policy does not govern information we receive from third parties. If you do not agree to the terms of this Policy, please do not use the Site, or any of our Services.

Each time you use any Site, or any Services, the current version of this Privacy Policy will apply. Accordingly, when you use any Site or Services, you should check the date of this Policy (which appears at the top) and review any changes since you last reviewed the Policy.

1. Types of Information We Collect

We may collect two types of information from users of our Site: “Personal Information,” which is information that can be used to identify you (such as name, email address, account numbers, etc.), and “Aggregate Information,” which is information that cannot be used to identify you (such as frequency of visits to the Site, browser type, etc.)

1.1. Personal Information Collected

1.1.1. We collect Personal Information that you voluntarily provide to us when you use our Sites and Services. For example, you may provide us with:

    • First and Last Name
    • E-mail Address
    • Phone Number

1.1.2. Other information may be collected automatically, including IP address. These types of information shall be treated as Personal Information to the extent they can be used to identify you.

1.2. Collection of Personal Information by Third Parties

Some links on our Site may redirect you to third party websites and services that we do not operate. The privacy practices of these websites and services will be governed by their own policies. We make no representation or warranty as to the privacy policies of any third parties, including the providers of third party applications. If you are submitting information to any such third party through our Site or Services, you should review and understand that party’s applicable policies, including their privacy policy, before providing your information to the third party.

Please note that certain links on our site will lead you to websites operated by TriNet Group, Inc. Please note that any such websites operated by TriNet are subject to TriNet’s own privacy policy, as provided.

1.3. Aggregate Information Collected

1.3.1. Aggregate Information may be collected when you visit our Site or interact with our Services, independent of any information you voluntarily enter. Additionally, we may use one or more processes to de-identify information that contains Personal Information, such that only Aggregate Information remains. We may collect, use, store, and transfer Aggregate Information without restriction.

1.3.2. For example, when you visit our Site, some information is automatically collected. Such information could include your operating system, the site from which you linked to us (“referring page”), the name of the website you choose to visit immediately after ours (called the “exit page”), information about other websites you have recently visited, browser (software used to browse the internet) type and language, device identifier numbers, your site activity, and the time and date of your visit. Although we do our best to honor the privacy preferences of our visitors, we are not able to respond to Do Not Track signals from your browser at this time.

6. Use of Cookies

6.1. The DSD website may 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 page server. Cookies cannot be 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.

6.2. 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 DSD pages, or register with DSD site or services, a cookie helps DSD to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. When you return to the same DSD website, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the DSD features that you customized.

6.3. 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 DSD services or websites you visit.

7. Analytics

7.1. We may use analytics, including Google Analytics to analyze Site traffic. Google Analytics does not create individual profiles for visitors and only collects aggregate data.

To learn more about privacy and Google Analytics, please consult the Google Analytics overview provided by Google at http://www.google.com/intl/en/analytics/privacyoverview.html.

7.2. We may also use cookies, pixels, beacons, or other web tracking technologies to track the amount of time spent on our Sites or social media and whether or not certain content, was viewed. We may work with a trusted third party to collect and process this information for us, based on our instructions and in compliance with this Privacy Policy.

8. Interest-Based Advertising:

8.1. We may also participate in interest-based advertising using similar technology. This means that you may see advertising on our Sites tailored to how you browse or shop, or you may see advertising for DSD and its properties on other websites based on your browsing behavior across websites. Some websites where we may advertise belong to ad networks that use your web browsing history to choose which ads to display on their network websites; these ads include advertising for DSD and its Sites, but no Personal Information about you is shared with those third party ad networks. Other websites where you see our ads, such as Facebook, may use interest preferences that you have chosen on those sites, as well as registration and other information about you, to choose which ads to display to you. Some internet browsers, websites such as Facebook and mobile devices offer opt-outs for interest-based advertising. Please refer to the website that you are visiting, your browser and/or your device settings for additional information.

8.2. You can opt-out of receiving interest-based ads from third parties who are members of the Network Advertising Initiative (NAI) or who follow the Digital Advertising Alliance’s SelfRegulatory Principles for Online Behavioral Advertising by visiting the opt-out pages on the NAI website (http://www.networkadvertising.org/choices/) and DAA website (http://www.aboutads.info/choices/).
