4. NOTICE OF ACCESSING, COLLECTING, STORING, USING AND DISCLOSING ENERGY
USAGE INFORMATION
Back to top
To standardize some of the rules regarding customer privacy, the California Public Utilities
Commission has issued “Rules Regarding Privacy and Security Protections for Energy Usage Data.” These rules allow us to disclose information about a customer (or a customer’s family, household, or residence) to a third party without the customer’s consent as is necessary for us to:

  •  Provide or bill for electrical power services;
  •  Provide services required by state or federal law or as specifically authorized by an order of the California Public Utilities Commission;
  •  Plan, implement or evaluate energy management, demand response or energy efficiency programs under contract with us or with the California Public Utilities Commission. To opt-out of sharing your information for this purpose, please email us at info@greenhomemakeover.com

5. THIRD PARTY CONTENT, LINKS, AND PLUG-INS
Back to top
The Sites may contain links to third parties who partner with us. If you use those links, these third parties may collect information about you. We do not control third-party links or how these third parties collect and use your personal information. If you have any questions about their privacy practices, you should view their privacy policies and/or contact those third parties directly.
The Sites also may offer you the ability to interact with social plugins from social media sites, which may allow us and/or the social media site to receive data from or about you. In some cases, we may know that you clicked on a social plugin, such as a Twitter Follow button, or received other information from the social media sites. Similarly, if you have previously provided personal information to a third party operating a plug-in on the Sites, then such third party may recognize you on the Sites. Your choice to use social network plugins and provide your information to them is subject to each social media site’s privacy policy, which may be different from ours, so please read these policies carefully to understand their policies and your options. As with linked sites, we have no control over the information that is collected, stored, or used by social network plugins, and are not responsible for the practices of such sites.

6. CHILDREN’S PRIVACY

Protecting children’s privacy is important to us. We do not direct the Sites to, nor do we knowingly collect any personal information from, children under the age of sixteen. If we learn that a child under the age of sixteen has provided personally identifiable information to the Sites, we will use reasonable efforts to remove such information from our files.

7. DATA SECURITY
Back to top
We have implemented measures designed to secure your information from accidental loss and from unauthorized access, use, alteration, and disclosure. Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we do our best to ensure the integrity and security of our network and systems, we cannot guarantee our security measures.

8. CHANGES TO OUR PRIVACY POLICY

Additional Personal Information Disclosures

As further described in the Privacy Policy, we may “sell” or “share” your personal information (as those terms are defined by applicable privacy laws such as the California Privacy Rights Act) to third parties, subject to your right to opt out of those sales.
In the last 12 months, we sold, shared (for cross-context behavioral or targeted advertising purposes), or disclosed the personal information (for the purposes described in our Privacy Policy) as follows:

● Business and Marketing Partners: Identifiers, Commercial information, Internet or other electronic network activity information, Geolocation data.

In the last 12 months, we may have disclosed each category of personal information for these purposes.
We do not sell Sensitive Personal Information, and we do not process or otherwise share Sensitive Personal Information for the purpose of cross-context behavioral or targeted advertising. However, based on your state of residency and subject to certain legal limitations and exceptions, you may be able to limit, or withdraw your consent for, our processing of Sensitive Personal Information.
De-identified Information
We may at times receive, or process personal information to create, de-identified data that can no longer reasonably be used to infer information about, or otherwise be linked to, a particular individual or household. Where we maintain de-identified data, we will maintain and use the data in de-identified form and not attempt to reidentify the data except as required or permitted by law.
Depending on your state of residency, you may also have the right to not receive retaliatory or discriminatory treatment in connection with a request to exercise the above rights. However, the exercise of the rights described above may result in a different price, rate or quality level of product or service where that difference is reasonably related to the impact the right has on our relationship or is otherwise permitted by law.
Submitting Privacy Rights Requests
To submit a request to exercise one of the privacy rights identified above, please:

● Call (800) 674 – 3587
Before processing your request, we may need to verify your identity and confirm you are a resident of a state that offers the requested right(s). In order to verify your identity, we will generally either require the successful authentication of your email, or the matching of sufficient information you provide us to the information we maintain about you in our systems. As a result, we require requests to include first and last name, phone number, email, street address, city, state, and zip code. We may at times need to request additional personal information from you, taking into consideration our relationship with you and the sensitivity of your request.
We will process requests to opt-out of sales within 15 business days, subject to any applicable exceptions and extensions permitted by law. We will process all other privacy requests within 45 days, subject to any applicable exceptions and extensions permitted by law.
In certain circumstances, we may decline a privacy rights request, particularly where you are not a resident of one of the eligible states or where we are unable to verify your identity.
Submitting Authorized Agent Requests
In certain circumstances, you are permitted to use an authorized agent to submit requests on your behalf through the designated methods set forth above where we can verify the authorized agent’s authority to act on your behalf. In order to verify the authorized agent’s authority, we generally require evidence of either (i) a valid power of attorney or (ii) a signed letter containing your name and contact information, the name and contact information of the authorized agent, and a statement of authorization for the request. Depending on the evidence provided and your state of residency, we may still need to separately reach out to you to confirm the authorized agent has permission to act on your behalf and to verify your identity in connection with the request.
To opt out of this type of disclosure, please email us at info@greenhomemakeover.com Minors
We do not sell the personal information of consumers we know to be less than 16 years of age, unless we receive affirmative authorization (the “Right to Opt In”) from either the minor who is between 13 and 16 years of age, or the parent or guardian of a minor less than 13 years of age.

Retention of Personal Information
We retain personal information only for as long as is reasonably necessary to fulfill the purpose for which it was collected.

To determine the appropriate duration of the retention of personal information, we consider the amount, nature and sensitivity of the personal information, the potential risk of harm from unauthorized use or disclosure of personal information and if we can attain our objectives by other means, as well as our legal, regulatory, tax, accounting and other applicable obligations.

In particular, we will retain personal information supplied when joining our services, including complaints, claims and any other personal information supplied during the duration of an individual’s contract with us for the services until the statutory limitation periods have expired, when this is necessary for the establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims.
Once retention of the personal information is no longer necessary for the purposes outlined above, we will either delete or de-identify the personal information or, if this is not possible (for example, because personal information has been stored in backup archives), then we will securely store the personal information and isolate it from further processing until deletion or de-identification is possible.
