Privacy Policy

SolarWorld USA has outlined our policies below to help visitors to www.solarworld-usa.com understand what information we collect, how it is used and how it is protected.

What Information is Collected
SolarWorld USA gathers only the information that is essential to providing good service to our customers, partners, investors and other website visitors. On certain pages, we may give you the option of providing us with your name, address, phone number, email address or various other kinds of details to allow you to request a solar assessment, contact SolarWorld USA or to receive newsletters and other services.

In addition to information you provide, SolarWorld USA may collect information about your use of our websites, such as information regarding what pages you access on our sites, what URL you just came from and the URL you next go to, what browser and operating system you are using and your IP address. This information may be used to analyze trends and statistics, monitor link usage and to administer our website.

The Way We Use Information:
The purpose of collecting information is to enable SolarWorld USA to deliver the requested services or products, to complete a transaction initiated by you, to consider you for a job opening, to contact you about a requested service, if necessary, and to provide related information that may be of interest to you. During the course of completing an inquiry initiated by you, SolarWorld USA may provide your contact or other information to a third party fulfillment partner or sales agent such as an Authorized Solar Installer. We do not share this information with outside parties except to the extent necessary to complete that request.

Cookies
When you visit one of our websites, we may place a small data file, commonly referred to as a cookie, on your computer. A cookie is an identifier that is sent to your browser from a web server and stored on your computer and stores information about your visit. Cookies assist you and SolarWorld USA in many ways, for example, by saving your personal preferences, customizing your web experience and measuring the value and effectiveness of SolarWorld USA’s pages and experiences. We may also use cookies to count the number of times you visit our sites and compile anonymous statistics on website use and anonymous characteristics of users. We may also use third-party service providers to monitor traffic patterns to show how and when visitors use our site. These monitoring technologies may use cookies. You may manually delete cookies at any time. If you choose to share personal information with us via a web form or other input mechanism, the information stored in the cookie, including your IP address, may be mapped to your personal information to create a user profile. This profile allows us to customize your web experience and deliver further communications that may be of interest to you.

Outbound Links
This site contains links to other sites. SolarWorld USA is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of these other sites or their associated companies and partners. SolarWorld USA recommends that you review the privacy policy on other sites to ensure that you understand how they address issues related to the use of your personal information.

Data Security
SolarWorld USA makes efforts to meet industry standards to safeguard the confidentiality of your personally identifiable information. Unfortunately, it is impossible to absolutely guarantee the security of data transmission over the Internet or any wireless network. Therefore, although we take reasonable measures to protect your information, SolarWorld USA cannot ensure the security of any information you transmit to us or from online services and you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your transmission, we will use industry standard efforts to ensure its security on our systems or require that our third party vendors storing the information use industry standard efforts to ensure its security on their systems.

Changes to the Privacy Policy
SolarWorld USA may amend this policy from time to time. If we decide to make substantial changes in the way we use your personally identifiable information, we will post the changes on this page and other places we deem appropriate so you become aware of what information we collect, how we use it and under what circumstances, if any, we disclose information. Your continued use of SolarWorld USA’s website following such change will be deemed acceptance of the revised policy.
