Privacy Policy

Your privacy is very important to us. At Find Energy we have a few fundamental principles that we follow:

  • We don’t ask you for personal information unless we truly need it. (We can’t stand services that ask you for things like your gender or income level for no apparent reason.)
  • We don’t share your personal information with anyone except to comply with the law, develop our products, or protect our rights.
  • We don’t store personal information on our servers unless required for the on-going operation of our site.

It is Find Energy’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, Find Energy collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Find Energy’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Find Energy’s visitors use its website.

Aggregated Statistics

Find Energy may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, Find Energy may monitor the most popular pages on the website or use spam screened by the Akismet service to help identify spam. Awesome Motive may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Awesome Motive does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

Find Energy discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on Find Energy’s behalf or to provide services available at Find Energy websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using Find Energy website, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Find Energy will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, Find Energy discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Find Energy believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Find Energy, third parties or the public at large. If you send us a request (for example via email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. Find Energy takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.

1. Analytical cookies: They help to ensure continuous improvement of the website, in order to guarantee the best possible service to the user. This website makes use of analytical cookies in order to better understand user activity on it. The information collected is anonymised, and it is not possible to establish any link between browsing patterns and individuals. The user may exclude their individual activity through the exclusion systems provided by the providers of the analysis systems that use these cookies, such as Google Analytics. It is possible that this website uses several of these systems. You can check the complete list of cookies at the end of this document.

2. Other cookies for internal use: In addition, this website may use various cookies to maintain user sessions between different logins to private account or portal areas that may be available. Their deactivation generally blocks features for the user, and therefore these cookies are necessary for the operation of this site. Again, you can check the complete list of cookies at the end of this document.

3. Cookies used by social networks: If Social Plugins are used, this website can participate in different third-party social networks, such as Facebook, to allow the user to share content or comments on those external websites and social platforms.

4. Cookies used by external content add-ons: This website may make use of content from third-parties, such as Google Maps to view geographic locations. Its use may require the use of certain third-party cookies that are detailed in the list at the end of the document. Some of these cookies are installed and managed by the providers of said add-ons, and cannot be accessed or controlled by this website.

Third-party cookies for personalised advertising: This website may make use of third-party ad services and, therefore, cookies linked to them for the creation of profiles based on online preferences and browsing habits. If used, these will be detailed in the list at the end of this document. They will not be installed if, after being informed of the cookie policy when reaching the website, the user does not accept the cookie policy and therefore does not continue browsing.
