PLEASE NOTE OUR Privacy Policy & Terms of Use 

PERSONAL INFORMATION WE COLLECT 

Building Efficiency Resources automatically collects certain information about your device, including, but not limited to, information about your web browser, IP address, geolocation, and some of the cookies that are installed on your device. As you browse the Site, we collect information about the internet activity or other electronic network activity information, such as individual web pages or products that you view, what websites or search terms referred you to the Site, and information about how you interact with the Site. We refer to this automatically-collected information as “Device Information.” 

We collect Device Information using the following technologies:  

  • Web Analytics: Matomo Analytics is an open source web analytics platform. A web analytics platform is used by a website owner in order to measure, collect, analyse and report visitors data for purposes of understanding and optimizing their website. If you would like to see what Matomo looks like, you can access a demo version at: https://demo.matomo.cloud. 
  • “Cookies” are data files that are placed on your device or computer and often include an anonymous unique identifier. For more information about cookies, and how to disable cookies, visit http://www.allaboutcookies.org. 
  • “Log files” track actions occurring on the Site, and collect data including your IP address, browser type, Internet service provider, referring/exit pages, and date/time stamps. 
  • “Web beacons,” “tags,” and “pixels” are electronic files used to record information about how you browse the Site. 

Additionally, when you utilize a form or attempt to utilize a form through the Site, we collect certain information from you, including, but not limited to, your name, website URL, email address, company name, and phone number. We refer to this information as “Form Information.” 

When we talk about “Personal Information” in this Privacy Policy, we are talking both about Device Information and Form Information. 

HOW DO WE USE YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION? 

We use the Personal Information that we collect generally to contact people who willingly reached out through the Site. Additionally, we use this Personal Information to: 

  • Communicate with you; 
  • Screen our orders for potential risk or fraud; and 
  • When in line with the preferences you have shared with us, provide you with information relating to our products or services. 
  • Processing your personal data such as cookies is helping us identify what is working and what is not on our website. For example, it helps us identify if the way we are communicating is engaging or not and how we can organize the structure of the website better. Our team is benefiting from the processing of your personal data, and they are directly acting on the website. By processing your personal data, you can profit from a website which is getting better and better. 
  • Your data will be used only to improve the user experience on our website and help you find the information you are looking for. 

SHARING YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION 

We respond to subpoenas, court orders, or legal process, or to establish or exercise our legal rights or defend against legal claims. 

We believe it is necessary to share information in order to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding illegal activities, suspected fraud, situations involving potential threats to the physical safety of any person, violations of Building Efficiency Resources' terms of use, or as otherwise required by law. 

Business Transfers: As we continue to develop our business, we might sell or buy services, stores, or assets. In such transactions, visitor information is usually one of the transferred business assets. Also, in the unlikely event that Building Efficiency Resources is acquired, or substantially all of its assets are acquired, customer information will, of course, be one of the transferred assets.
