Privacy Policy

Privacy Policy

This Privacy Policy is provided to inform you of the policies and procedures of Fire Mountain Solar regarding the collection, use, and disclosure of the information that we collect and receive from users of the Site and participants in our Services.

Unless otherwise defined in this Privacy Policy or unless context requires otherwise, capitalized terms used in this Privacy Policy have the same meanings given to them in our Terms of Use and other Terms provided on the Site. You can access the Terms of Use by clicking on the link by that name located elsewhere on the Site.

Your Privacy

We value your privacy. This Privacy Policy gives notice of and explains our practice of collecting information online and your participation about the way your information is collected and used by us.

By accessing, visiting or otherwise using the Site, you consent to the terms of this Privacy Policy. If we ever change any terms of the Privacy Policy, they will be posted by means of a revision to this Privacy Policy or elsewhere in the Terms of Use or on the Site. Accordingly, you agree to review this Privacy Policy each time you access, visit or otherwise use the Site, and in each instance you agree anew with and consent to all such terms in their entirety.

This Privacy Policy applies to all information that you provide to us through the Site or otherwise in connection with our Services, but does not apply to information collected offline. As used in this policy, the terms ā€œusingā€ and ā€œprocessingā€ information include using cookies (discussed below) on a computer or other device, subjecting the information to statistical or other analysis and using or handling information in any way, including but not limited to collecting, storing, evaluating, modifying, deleting, using, combining, disclosing and transferring information within our organization or among our affiliates.

Information Collection and Use

When using our Site or participating in Services, we may ask that you provide us with some personally identifiable informationā€”information about you that can be used to contact or identify you, and information on your use or potential use of the Site and receipt of or participation in our Services and related matters (ā€œPersonal Informationā€). Personal Information that we might collect includes things like your name, phone number, email address, and your work and home addresses. Personal Information may also include other information you supply to us concerning your preferences and interests expressed in the course of using the Services, or that may be required in connection with making a donation to a Donor Advised Fund or with participating in a Promoted Campaign.

We do not currently collect credit card or other payment information; such information is collected by the third-party payment processor we use in connection with facilitating Transactions for Membership, Meeting Fees and Sponsorship

Information Disclosure

We will not rent, sell, or share personal information about you with nonaffiliated companies other than in connection with the operation of the Site or the provision of our Services, and when we otherwise have your permission. We may also share aggregated information that does not include Personal Information with third parties for industry analysis, demographic profiling and other purposes.

Service Providers

We may employ or partner with third parties to process payments, facilitate our Services, provide Services on our behalf, provide Services-related support (such as maintenance, database management, web analytics and improvement of the Service features) or to assist us in analyzing how our Services are used. These third parties have access to your Personal Information only to perform these tasks on our behalf and are obligated not to disclose or use it for any other purpose. We may also provide Personal Information to our business partners or other affiliates for the purpose of providing you with information we believe may be of interest to you.

Law Enforcement

Fire Mountain Solar may be required to cooperate with government and law enforcement officials and private parties to enforce and comply with the law. In such cases, we will disclose any and all information that is required by law or that we otherwise believe to be appropriate or necessary, in our sole discretion, to respond to claims, legal process or disputes (including, but not limited to, subpoenas, other court orders and pleadings in litigation), to protect the property and rights of Fire Mountain Solar or a third party, to protect the safety of the public or any person, or to prevent or stop activity we may consider to be, or to pose a risk of being, any illegal, unethical or legally actionable activity.

Data Security

While no data security practice or procedure can be 100% foolproof, we have instituted various procedures that we believe are appropriate and customary under current standards in order to secure personal information we collect on the Site and to prevent unauthorized access to such information and maintain data accuracy and ensure that we use information we collect correctly. We employ administrative, physical and electronic measures designed to safeguard and protect your information from unauthorized access and disclosure. We will make any legally required disclosures of any breach of the security, confidentiality, or integrity of your unencrypted electronically stored personal information (as defined or described, by whatever term, by applicable law governing security breach notification) to you via email or conspicuous posting on this Site as expeditiously as practicable. We offer the use of third-party secure server processors, such as PayPal. After a commercial transaction, your private information that may have been required for such transaction (credit card numbers, social security numbers, financial information) maybe be stored by us. We cannot speak as to the policies of PayPal or any other third-party payment processor, or any other third party; you will need to review their policies separately.

Links to Third-Party Sites

We may from time to time or at any time include links to third-party websites. Such sites have separate, independent privacy policies, and we have no, and we hereby disclaim any and all (and you acknowledge and agree that we have no and disclaim any and all), responsibility or liability for any content, features, functionality or data collection of such sites.

Links to Other Sites

Our Services may contain links or APIā€™s (data or content exchange interfaces), to external services or websites of various strategic partners, joint venturers, affiliates, advertisers or other third parties for information or functionality or services. If you choose to visit a partner or advertiser (such as a Cause or a Sponsoring Organization) by clicking on a link to their site, or selecting a button, service, banner ad, or other type of advertisement, or click any other third party link, you will be directed to that third partyā€™s resources. The fact that we may link to a partnerā€™s services, functionality, website or present a banner ad or other type of advertisement is not an endorsement, authorization or representation of our affiliation with that third party, nor is it an endorsement of their privacy or information security policies or practices. We do not exercise control over third party services, functionality, websites or other resources. These other parties may place their own cookies or other files on your computer or device, collect data or solicit personal information from you. Other services may or may not follow other, different or additional rules regarding the use or disclosure of the personal information you submit to them. Our Privacy Policy only applies to the Services and we are not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of other websites. You should check the privacy policies of those sites before providing your personal information to them.

International Use & Information Transfer

By their nature, websites and similar applications may be accessible in countries outside the United States. The Site and the Services are directed only to persons in the United States who meet the above age requirement. We make no representation that materials on this site are appropriate or available for use in locations outside the United States, and accessing them from territories where their contents are illegal is prohibited. Those who choose to access the Site from other locations do so on their own initiative, are responsible for compliance with local laws, and are doing so without our consent. Any offer for any product, service, and/or information made in connection with this site is void where prohibited. Your information may be transferred to and maintained on computers located outside of your or our state, province, country or other governmental jurisdiction where the privacy laws may not be as protective as those in your or our jurisdiction.

If we do modify this Privacy Policy, your notification thereof shall be in the form of either a posting on the Site, by or providing you with notice of the modification by email, or by a simple change on the Site. You are reminded that your use of the Site and of our Services constitutes an agreement and promise by you to read and agree to the Terms and this policy each time to use the same. If required by law, we will also indicate when such terms are effective by posting the date last updated. By continuing to access or use the Services after we have posted a modification or have provided you with notice of a modification, you are indicating that you agree to be bound by the modified Privacy Policy as so modified If the modified Privacy Policy is not acceptable to you, your only recourse is to cease using the Services.
