Privacy Policy

YOUR PRIVACY IS IMPORTANT TO US!

Student Energy respects your privacy and strives to protect it. When you subscribe or register with us, we need to collect certain information about you, and we believe you have a right to know how we use that information and keep it secure. So we've answered a number of frequently asked questions below. If you have any more questions about our policy, please email us at info@studentenergy.org

 

WHAT INFORMATION DO WE COLLECT?

When you sign up for a free account on studentenergy.org, we require your name, email and a unique password.  Additionally, we give you the option to voluntarily provide information such as your mailing address and other bio information. When you sign up for a paid membership, we also collect credit card and billing information through our online merchant company called Stripe.

We may, from time to time, conduct online surveys. When you complete a survey online, we may ask for information including your age, postal code, company, email and/or mailing address.

 

IS ANY OF THE INFORMATION YOU COLLECT MADE PUBLIC?

You will notice on your profile page (https://www.studentenergy.org/profile) that there is a section referred to as “PUBLIC INFORMATION” and another referred to as “PRIVATE INFORMATION.”  The information you put in the Public section is shown on our website but it is all voluntarily given (i.e. we do not force you to put any information other than your name in the public domain)

 

HOW DO WE USE THE INFORMATION?

When you register on our website, we use your information to process the transaction. We may send you an email to confirm. We may also contact you by regular mail, email, or phone if we have any questions about your registration.  Additionally, if you have paid for a membership we will use your mailing address to send you a Movement Card.

When you register, complete a survey, or participate in any contest or promotion on our website, we may use the information you provide to send you email or regular mail about our programs, services, or other contests and promotions.

Now and then, we may collect and aggregate site guest and customer information. We may share this aggregated, non-personally identifiable information with existing and prospective business partners. None of the aggregate information will contain any information that identifies you individually. We won't sell, trade or rent any of your personal information. The only time we may disclose specific individual information is if we reasonably believe that it's necessary to comply with applicable laws or regulations.

 

DO WE SHARE YOUR INFORMATION WITH THIRD PARTIES?

We share your information only with the trusted third party service providers who manage our website. These third parties provide specific services and administer activities offered at our website; for example, content management, email management, registration, and credit card processing.

HOW DO WE MAKE SURE YOUR INFORMATION IS SECURE?

When your register with use we utilize the latest encryption technology (Secure Sockets Layer, or SSL) to keep your personal information secure. Your information is encrypted (or coded) using a secure server for maximum security. This coding makes it extremely difficult for anyone to reach your information as it moves through our system.

 

IS MY CREDIT CARD INFORMATION SECURE?

Yes! We take your financial and personal information very seriously and therefore use a reputable and secure web merchant company to process payments.  You can see Stripe’s full privacy policy here.
