Privacy Policy

Your Privacy
Your privacy is super duper important to us. We do mean that. To better protect your privacy we give you this totally awesome notice detailing all our online information practices and the choices you can make about the way your information is collected and used. To make this notice easy to find, we make it available on our homepage and at every point where personally identifiable information may be requested.

Google Adsense and the DoubleClick DART Cookie
Google, as a third party advertisement vendor, uses cookies to serve ads on this site. No, not those types of cookies. Could you imagine if ads were served on cookies? I would go broke. The use of DART cookies by Google enables them to serve adverts to visitors that are based on their visits to this website as well as other sites on the internet.

To opt out of the DART cookies you may visit the Google ad and content network privacy policy at the following url http://www.google.com/privacy_ads.html Tracking of users through the DART cookie mechanisms are subject to Google’s own privacy policies.

Other Third Party ad servers or ad networks may also use cookies to track users activities on this website to measure advertisement effectiveness and other reasons that will be provided in their own privacy policies, EnergyRefuge.com has no access or control over these cookies that may be used by third party advertisers.

Collection of Personal Information
When visiting EnergyRefuge.com, the IP address used to access the site will be logged along with the dates and times of access. This information is purely used to analyze trends, administer the site, track users movement and gather broad demographic information for internal use. Most importantly, any recorded IP addresses are not linked to personally identifiable information. Pretty much every website does this now in order to track search traffic trends, popular keywords used to find the site, and other boring website stuff. Don’t worry, this data is not linked to you nor will we pop out of your computer and scare you.

Links to third party Websites
We have included links on this site for your use and reference. We are not responsible for the privacy policies on these websites. You should be aware that the privacy policies of these sites may differ from our own. Any links posted on this website that lead you to another website that sells something are most likely affiliate links. In plain English- we get a commission if you buy something from this website or a website that we link to. We only link to websites that we have a relationship with and trust your traffic to. We wouldn’t send you to Muammar al-Gaddafi’s used cars website, after all. (It’s really his use of makeup more than the dictator thing.)

Seriously, running a website is costly and we are trying to earn a living, so we use commissions as a way to pay the bills. We also sell fake Gucci bags out of our basement, but its not too profitable and we have huge blisters on our fingers.

Changes to this Privacy Statement
The contents of this statement may be altered at any time, at our discretion.

If you have any questions regarding the privacy policy of EnergyRefuge.com then you may contact us at webmaster [at] energyrefuge.com. Feel free to also reach out to us by traveling to our corporate headquarters in the North Pole…okay, email is easier. Thanks for reading this. We know you are bored and thinking about scarfing down cookies now, but you have the Federal Trade Commission to thank for that…don’t blame us. They require these notices so they can keep thousands of govies employed with big titles and salaries.
