Please read the content below to learn more about our Privacy Policy. By visiting the HiGrid web site at http://www.hi-grid.com or by using any of our Services (as defined in our Terms of Use), you acknowledge and accept the practices and policies outlined in the HiGrid Privacy Policy.

What Does This Privacy Policy Cover?
This Privacy Policy covers the HiGrid treatment of the personally identifiable information (“Personal Information”) HiGrid gathers when you are accessing the web sites controlled by HiGrid and its affiliates. This policy does not apply to the practices of companies that HiGrid does not own or control, or to individuals HiGrid does not employ or manage.

What Personal Information Does HiGrid Display or Collect?
The information we gather from users enables us to personalize and improve our Services, and to allow our users to set up a user account and profile that can be used to interact with other users through our web sites. In connection with our web sites, we may request and display some personal information to other users and visitors of our web sites, which allows users to identify each other. We collect the following types of information from our users:

Personal Information You Provide to Us
We receive and store any information you enter on our web sites or provide to us in any other way, including, but not limited to information gathered as part of the sign up process, and by Devices (as defined in our Terms of Use) as you use our Services. The types of Personal Information collected may include your name, occupation, type of vehicle, address, phone number, and email address and information about your use of the Services on the web sites, as well as credit card, debit card or bank account information. You may choose not to provide us with certain information, but then you may not be able to take advantage of many of our special features or even some of our basic features. The Personal Information you provide is used for such purposes as collecting payment for Services; providing the information in the Services; responding to your requests for certain information, products and services; customizing the content you see; and communicating with you about safety issues.

Personal Information Collected Automatically
We receive and store certain types of information whenever you interact with HiGrid.com or obtain Services from us. HiGrid automatically receives and records information on our server logs from your browser including your IP address, HiGrid cookie information, and the pages you requested and visited. Our persistent and session ID cookies provide data that HiGrid may use and analyze regarding the use of the HiGrid web sites and services available therein. Information collected may include but is not limited to web site traffic volume, frequency of visits, type and time of transactions, type of browser and operating system, etc. We also record the details of your transactions on our web sites.

Information Collected from E-mail Communications
We often receive a confirmation when you open an e-mail from HiGrid, if your computer supports this type of program. HiGrid uses this confirmation to help us make e-mails more effective and helpful.

Information Collected from Cookies
Cookies are alphanumeric identifiers that we transfer to your computer’s hard drive through your browser to enable our systems to recognize your browser and tell us how and when pages in our site are visited and by how many people. Most browsers have an option for turning off the cookie feature, which will prevent your browser from accepting new cookies, as well as (depending on the sophistication of your browser software) allowing you to decide on the acceptance of new cookies. We strongly recommend, however, that you leave the cookies activated because cookies enable you to take advantage of some of our web sites’ most attractive features.

Affiliated Businesses We Do Not Control
We are affiliated with a variety of businesses and work closely with them. HiGrid may provide Services, or sell products jointly with its affiliated businesses. You can easily recognize when an affiliated business is associated with your transaction. We will share user information that is related to such transactions with that affiliated business.

Agents
We employ other companies and people to perform tasks on our behalf and may need to share your information with them to provide products or services to you. Examples include sending email, analyzing data, and providing user services. Unless we tell you differently, HiGrid’s agents do not have any right to use the Personal Information we share with them, beyond what is necessary to assist us. You hereby consent to our sharing of Personal Information for the above purposes.

User Profiles
User profile information that you elect to make public, including User ID may be displayed to other users to facilitate user interaction within our web sites.

Communication in Response to User Submissions
As part of our web sites and Services, you may receive from HiGrid, or its agents, e-mail and other communication in response to communications you initiated with HiGrid. You acknowledge and agree that by initiating such communications, HiGrid and its agents may send you e-mail and other communications that they determine relate to your initial communications.

Business Transfers
In some cases we may choose to buy or sell assets. In these types of transactions, user information is typically one of the business assets that is transferred. Moreover, if HiGrid, or substantially all of its assets were acquired, or in the unlikely event that HiGrid goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer may continue to use your Personal Information as set forth in this policy.

Protection of HiGrid and Others
We may release Personal Information when we believe, in good faith, that release is necessary to comply with the law; enforce or apply our Terms of Use and other agreements; protect the rights, property, or safety of HiGrid, our employees, our users, or others. This includes, without limitation, exchanging information with other companies and organizations for fraud protection.

International Data Transfer
In operating our service, we transfer Personal Information to service centers operated by HiGrid, our affiliates, our agents, and our data processing service suppliers, who may be located outside of your home country. (Residents of Europe should be aware that this may involve transferring data outside the European Economic Area.) In these circumstances, HiGrid will comply with laws applicable to such transfers and will take procedural and legal steps to ensure that people outside your home country take appropriate steps to protect Personal Information in accordance with applicable laws and the terms of this Privacy Policy.

With Your Consent
Except as set forth above, you will be notified when your Personal Information may be shared with third parties, and will be given the option to prevent the sharing of this information.

Is Personal Information About Me Secure?
HiGrid is committed to handling your customer information with high security standards. We use computer safeguards such as firewalls and data encryption, we enforce physical access controls to our buildings and files, and we authorize access to Personal Information only for those employees of HiGrid who require it to fulfill their job responsibilities.
Your HiGrid account and Personal Information is protected by a password for your privacy and security. You need to ensure that there is no unauthorized access to your account and Personal Information by selecting and protecting your password appropriately, and by limiting access to your computer and browser by signing off after you have finished accessing your account.
