Introduction

Stirling Energy Systems, Inc. ("Stirling") respects the privacy rights of every individual visiting http://www.stirlingenergy.com (the "Site"). You will find a link to this notice at the bottom of our homepage and on every page within the Site. By visiting this Site, you agree and accept the terms of this Privacy Policy, and all applicable laws. Any external links to other websites are clearly identifiable as such, and Stirling is not responsible for the content or the privacy policies of these other websites. By using the Site, you expressly consent to our collection, use, storage and disclosure of your information and data as described in this Privacy Policy.

Types of information collected

Stirling may collect and retain two types of information:

I. Personal Data
This is data that identifies you or can be used to identify or contact you and may include your name, address, email address and telephone number. Such information is only collected from you if you voluntarily submit it to us. We collect no personally identifying information about you except when you specifically and knowingly provide it. For example, we may retain information about you when you submit a resume in response to a job posting, or when you send us a request for more information about content listed on the Site. We also collect information about you when you send an e-mail to or call Stirling, so that we may respond to your message.

II. Non-Personal Data
Like most websites, we may gather statistical and other analytical information collected on an aggregate basis of all visitors to our website. "Non-Personal Data" is the nonpublic information about you that may be obtained by us in connection with providing you information on some of our services and products. This Non-Personal Data comprises information that cannot be used to identify or contact you, such as demographic information regarding, for example, user IP addresses where they have been clipped, browser types and other anonymous statistical data involving the use of the Site.

How we use and disclose your information

Non-Personal Data
Generally, we do not disclose your Non-Personal Data to third parties. However, we may disclose aggregated information without your permission. Further, we may use and disclose your information both internally and externally, including without limitation, as described herein. We use the Non-Personal Data gathered from visitors to our website in an aggregate form to get a better understanding of where our visitors come from and to help us better design and organise our website.

Cookies
We do not place "cookies" on the browser files of your computer when you visit our Site. A "cookie" is a file that tracks what you do on a website.

Personal Data
We will process any Personal Data you provide to us so that we can send you the information you have requested and to provide information on our services and products that may be useful to you.

How we disclose your information

We may provide Non-Personal Data to third parties, where such information is combined with similar information of other users of the Site without your permission. For example, we might inform third parties regarding the number of unique users who visit our Site, the demographic breakdown of the users of our Site, or the activities that visitors to our Site engage in while on our Site. However, we do not sell or share any information about individual users. We may use your information both internally and externally, including without limitation, as described herein.

We will not disclose your Personal Data to third parties unless you have consented to this disclosure. We will disclose your Personal Data if we believe in good faith that we are required to disclose it in order to comply with any applicable law, a summons, a search warrant, a court or regulatory order, or other statutory requirement. We sometimes engage third parties, such as contractors, to provide certain services to us or on our behalf. We may share your information with those third parties on a "need to know" basis. In addition, we may enter into certain marketing relationships with third parties to provide you with a better service. We may share some of your Personal Data with those parties. We may also share your Personal Data with our affiliated companies. You are under no obligation, however, to respond to any requests from those third parties.

Sale of Business
We reserve the right to transfer information (including your Personal Data) to a third party in the event of a sale, merger, liquidation, receivership or transfer of all or substantially all of the assets of our company provided that the third party agrees to adhere to the terms of a substantially similar Privacy Policy and provided that the third party only uses your Personal Data for the purposes that you provided it to us.

How we protect your information

Security
We maintain physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards to protect the confidentiality of your Personal Data as required by law. Such precautions, however, do not guarantee or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us via the Internet, and we make no guarantees, warranties or representations that your information is protected from viruses and other security attacks. No data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. However, we will take commercially reasonable steps to protect your Personal Data. Further, while Stirling follows commercially reasonable procedures to ensure that third parties will keep your information secure, Stirling cannot make any guarantees with respect to the actions or policies of such third parties.

How you can "opt-out", update, verify and delete personal data

You may inform us of any changes in your Personal Data, and in accordance with our obligations we will update or delete your Personal Data accordingly. To find out what Personal Data we hold on you or to have your Personal Data updated, amended or removed from our database, please email us at ses@stirlingenergy.com or call us at (602) 957 1818. Although, we will make every effort to delete your information from our databases, and inform third-parties to whom we have provided a link on the Site to do the same, we may need to retain your information in our archives and records in order to comply with law, resolve disputes, troubleshoot problems, assist with investigations, enforce our Stirling Energy Systems Inc. Online Terms and Conditions and other policies, and take other actions otherwise permitted by law.
