Our Commitment to Privacy
Keeping You Informed of Changes
We may need to change this policy from time to time in order to address new issues and reflect changes on our site. We will post changes here so that you will always know what information we gather, how we might use that information, and whether we will disclose that information to anyone. Please refer back to this policy regularly.
Online Information Gathering
Information collected online is often defined as being either anonymous or personally identifiable. Anonymous information cannot be tied back to a specific individual. Personally identifiable information lets us know the specifics of who you are, such as your name, e-mail or postal address, phone and fax numbers and utility account numbers. The choice of how much of your personally identifiable information you choose to disclose to Accent Energy is left completely up to you.
Accent Energy may use this site to conduct surveys and/or questionnaires of our visitors. Other than required demographic information, we will not ask for personally identifiable information. Accent Energy reserves the right to perform statistical analyses of the responses to such surveys and/or questionnaires.
On certain pages of our site, we give you the option of providing us with names, addresses, fax numbers, e-mail addresses, utility account numbers, demographic and other personal and financial information. This information will be used to send requested materials or execute energy service provision contracts. We do not gather this personal information without your knowledge, active permission, and participation.
We will never intentionally disclose any personal information collected from you on our site to any third party without having received your permission. In other words, without such permission, we will not sell, rent, loan or give personally identifiable user information collected from you on our site to marketers or any other third parties. The only exception to this is if Accent Energy is required by law enforcement or judicial authorities to provide personally identifiable information to the appropriate governmental authorities. However, as with any Internet transmission that is not encrypted, the risk of disclosure to unintended third parties exists. All information pertaining to energy service provision accounts is encrypted during transmission.
Links to Other Websites
You may find links to other sites or services on the Accent Energy site. We do not control the content or links that appear on these sites. The fact that we have made these links available to you is not an endorsement or recommendation to you by Accent Energy.
Other companies or agencies linked to this site may collect information about you when you view or click on these sites. We cannot control this collection of information. You should contact these content providers directly if you have any questions about their use of the information they collect. These sites and services may have their own privacy policies, or no policy at all. We encourage you to review the privacy policies of any third party sites or services before providing any of them with your personal information.
If you have provided us with any personal information during a prior visit to or use of Accent Energy's website, and not in connection with energy service provision contracts, you may request that we delete your personal information in its entirety from the databases maintained in connection with our site by sending an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org or by writing to Accent Energy, 6065 Memorial Drive, Dublin, OH 43017. These same options may be used to change or modify information previously provided to us.
This site may contain advertisements by third parties. Accent Energy may receive royalties or fees from such advertisers. Accent Energy does not endorse, guarantee, warrant, or recommend any products or services contained in advertisements.
It is Accent Energy's policy that personal information, such as your name, postal and e-mail address, telephone number and utility account number, is private and confidential. Accordingly, the personal information you provide is stored in a secure location, is accessible only by designated staff, and is used only for the purposes for which you provide the information.
Hold Harmless and Indemnification
You agree to defend, indemnify and hold harmless Accent Energy, its officers, directors, employees, agents, licensors and suppliers, from and against any claims, actions or demands, and liabilities including without limitation reasonable legal and accounting fees, resulting from, or alleged to result from, your use of this site in a manner that violates or is alleged to violate these conditions.
BY ENTERING THE SITE YOU HEREBY EXPRESSLY AGREE THAT ACCENT ENERGY AND ITS OFFICERS, DIRECTORS, AGENTS AND EMPLOYEES SHALL NOT BE LIABLE TO YOU FOR ANY DAMAGES, CLAIMS, DEMANDS OR CAUSES OF ACTION, DIRECT OR INDIRECT, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL OR PUNITIVE, AS A RESULT OF YOUR USE OF THE SITE OR ANY INFORMATION YOU OBTAIN ON IT OR ANY OTHER INTERACTION WITH ACCENT ENERGY. IN DOING SO, YOU AGREE THAT YOU ARE WAIVING VOLUNTARILY AND UNEQUIVOCALLY ANY LIABILITY OF ACCENT ENERGY.
