What information do we collect?

On an anonymous basis, we may record IP addresses (the Internet address of a computer) to track sessions on our site to tell us which parts of our site users visit, how often they visit, and how long they stay. IP addresses are not linked by us to any personally identifiable information. We may also track browser type and platform to help make our site operate correctly with your browser. Again, this process is anonymous. However, if you apply to register with us, you will be asked to send us your name, e-mail address, phone number, fax number, postal address, and possibly other personal information. Additional demographic information may be optionally requested in order to improve our service.

How do we use personally identifiable information you choose to give us? Personally identifiable information you submit to us may be used to respond to inquiries from you, to contact you regarding potential business opportunities with Yale Office of Sustainability, and for our own internal business purposes.

We may collect, create and disclose to third parties aggregated, anonymous statistics regarding our business and traffic on this Site. This information won’t include individually identifiable data about you.

We may also sometimes engage agents or contractors to perform services necessary to our operations (for example, delivery of materials, distribution of e-mail, etc.). When we do, we may give them access to name, addresses or other information necessary for them to do their job for us, but not for any other purpose.

Except as described above, and except for any affiliated companies and as may be required by law, we will not disclose your personally identifiable information to others without your consent.
