Ambia Privacy Policy

Last Updated: June 6, 2024

Ambia Energy, LLC and its subsidiaries and affiliates (“Ambia,” “we,” “us,” “our”) work hard to build and maintain a relationship of trust with you. This Privacy Policy (“Privacy Policy” or “Policy”) describes how we collect, use, and disclose your Personal Information and any rights you may have with respect to such information. It governs Personal Information we collect through our website(s), microsite(s), mobile website(s)(collectively, “Sites”) and Personal Information we collect from you or third parties through any other means to provide our services or perform other business activities (collectively, “Services”).

If you provide information to us or we collect Personal Information about you in connection with a financial transaction (potential or complete), your nonpublic personal information is also governed by federal and state financial privacy laws, such as the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act, and the financial privacy notices provided pursuant to those laws. In the event of a conflict or inconsistency between this Privacy Policy and a financial privacy notice, the applicable financial privacy notice governs.

This Privacy Policy is part of our Terms & Conditions for our Sites. Please carefully read this Privacy Policy before using our Sites or Services. By Accessing or using our Sites or Services you agree to our use of your information consistent with the Terms of Use and this Policy.

This Privacy Policy is subject to change. We encourage you to review it frequently for any revisions or amendments. Unless otherwise stated, changes will be effective immediately upon posting. You accept the changes by your continued use of our Sites or Services. If we determine that a change to this Policy will result in using your Personal Information acquired before the change in a materially new way, we will provide you notice before doing so.

Conflict Between This Policy and Laws and Regulations

When federal, state, or local laws or regulations require a higher level of protection for your Personal Information, they take precedence over this Privacy Policy. Otherwise, the specific requirements of this Policy apply.

The types of Personal Information we collect about you may vary based on how you use our Sites or Services, and your relationship with us.

Usage Data and Sites Activity

We automatically collect information in connection with the actions you take on our Sites (“Usage Data”). For example, each time you use our Sites, we automatically collect the type of web browser you use, the type of device you use, your operating system and version, your Internet Service Provider, your IP address, the pages you view, referring and exit pages, the date and time of your visit, and the number of clicks to, from, and within our Sites, and the duration of your visits to our Sites. If we can reasonably associate this information with you, directly or indirectly, we treat it as Personal Information under the categories of Identifiers or Internet or other electronic network information, as appropriate. If we cannot reasonably associate this information with you, we treat it as Usage Data.

Communication Recordings

We may record calls and retain the content of text messages, chat transcripts, emails, and other written/electronic communications between you and us. By communicating with us, you consent to our recording and retention of communications.

How We Collect Information

From You

We may ask you to provide us with Personal Information when you communicate with us online or offline, including at your home or through surveys or marketing programs. You are not required to provide us your Personal Information; however, if you choose not to provide the requested information, you may not be able to use some features of the Sites or Services, or we may not be able to fulfill your requested interaction. We may also capture Personal Information when you contact us by phone, email, or through other means.

Third-Party Data Sources

We may collect Personal Information from third-party data sources such as data brokers, consumer reporting agencies, marketing agencies and partners, analytics firms, other consumers, and government agencies.

Cookies and Other Automated Tools

We and third parties may use cookies (small text files placed on your computer to identify your computer and browser) and other automated tools such as pixels to track your interaction with our Sites and to improve the experience of the Sites and Services, such as saving your preferences from visit to visit to present you with a customized version of the Website. Many web browsers are initially set up to accept cookies. You can reset your web browser to refuse all cookies or to indicate when a cookie is being sent. However, certain features of our Sites may not work if you delete or disable cookies.

We may use the following types of cookies:

  • Strictly Necessary: These cookies are essential to operate the Sites and provide you with services you have requested.
  • Functional: These cookies enable certain features or non-essential functionality on our Sites. For example, we might use these cookies to recognize you and remember your preferences or settings when you return to our Sites so we can provide you with a more personalized experience.
  • Advertising Cookies: These cookies allow us and third parties to learn more about you, including your use of our Sites and other websites, and advertise products/services that might interest you as further indicated below.
  • Analytics Cookies: These cookies help us and third parties understand how our Sites are working and who is visiting our Sites.

We and third parties may also use tools that enable us to track certain aspects of a user’s visit to our Sites. This technology helps us better manage content on our Sites by informing us what content is effective, how consumers engage with our Sites, and how consumers arrive at and/or depart from our Sites. The software typically uses two methods to track user activity: (1) “tracking pixels” and (2) “clear gifs.” Tracking pixels are pieces of executable code that are embedded in a web page that track usage activity including which pages are viewed, when they are viewed, and how long the pages are viewed. Clear gifs are tiny graphics with unique identifiers which are embedded in web pages and email messages that track whether a user views a web page or email message. User activity information may be associated with additional information about a user’s session and Personal Information, if provided by the user.

If you arrive at our Sites by “clicking through” from another website, then certain information about you that you provided to that other website, such as the terms you searched that led you to our Sites, may be transmitted to us and we may use it. You should review the Privacy Policy of any website from which you reached our Sites to determine what information the operator collects and how it uses such information. We may retain information about you provided to us by other websites and will use it in accordance with this Privacy Policy. Such information may be associated with other Usage Data or Personal Information.

Interest-Based Advertising

We may work with third-party advertisers, search providers, and ad networks (“Advertisers”) to learn more about you and show you ads or other content that we believe would be relevant to you. Advertisers may collect and use information about your use of our Sites or Services as well as other websites and services. These companies may use cookies and other online tracking technologies to collect and use your information. We and/or Advertisers may also append other data to the data collected by Advertisers to create an interest profile of individual users. Our Privacy Policy does not cover any use by an Advertiser of information that they may collect from you. Advertisements may be shown via our Sites or on third-party websites.

If you do not want to receive interest-based advertising, you can also visit the Digital Advertising Alliance (DAA) Consumer Choice Page or the Network Advertising Initiative Consumer Opt-Out Page. These websites allow you to opt-out of participating interest-based advertising networks. Opt-outs are device and browser specific; therefore, you will need to set your opt-out preferences for each device and browser. Deleting browser cookies can remove your opt-out preferences; however, these organizations may offer browser extensions that help preserve the opt-out preferences you set. Please note that opt-outs only apply to interest-based advertising. You may still receive other types of online advertising.

Information From Advertisements

If you arrive at our Sites via an advertisement (e.g., banner ad), we may collect information regarding the advertisement with which you interacted and your interactions (e.g., item clicked, date and time).

Social Media Features

The Sites may include social media features or widgets. These features may collect information about your IP address and the pages you visit on our Sites as well as other Personal Information. A cookie may be set to ensure that a feature properly functions. Your interactions with features are governed by the privacy policies of the companies that provide them and you should review the relevant privacy policies before interacting with these features.
