We Stand For Energy is committed to protecting the privacy of our supporters who use our Web site. This Privacy Policy covers our treatment of information that we may collect when you (1) access our Web site and/or (2) use our Web site to generate and/or send an e-mail or printed letters to federal and/or state policymakers.

When You Access Our Web site:

In addition to the information you knowingly provide, We Stand For Energy collects the domain names and IP addresses of its visitors, along with usage statistics (e.g., types of Web browsers and operating systems used) and browsing history. These data are used to more efficiently operate and administer the Web site. We Stand For Energy may combine this information with the personally identifiable information it collects.

When You Generate and/or Send An E-mail to Federal and/or State Policymakers:

From time to time, We Stand For Energy may ask you to consider sending an email to federal and/or state policymakers on issues of importance to the electric power industry. We will ask you to provide your first and last names, e-mail address, home address, ZIP code, and telephone number for the purpose of confirming that you are a constituent to the recipient of your letter. The information you provide will appear on the e-mail you generate using our Web site and will be disclosed to the offices to which you addressed your message. Many offices have enough staff resources to respond only to constituents and providing them with information about you will help identify you as such. These offices may, in turn, disclose your personal information to others.

Information Sharing and Disclosure

We will not disclose your personal information (specifically, your name, e-mail address, mailing address, or telephone number) to any third party without your explicit permission and consent, except as follows:

  • Your personal information may be shared with the offices to which you have addressed your correspondence, which in turn may share such information with others;
  • We may share your personally identifiable information with affiliated organizations to the extent those organizations agree to abide by this privacy policy;
  • We may disclose your personal information as required by law or in good faith compliance with any court order, warrant, or other judicial, administrative, or legislative authorization or requirement; and
  • Your information also will be available to our Web site vendor for the purpose of assisting us with the campaign and administering and operating this Web site. The Web site vendor will not share your personal information with anyone else.

E-mail

From time to time, We Stand For Energy may send updates and issue-focused electronic communications related to the matters important to the electric power industry. We may use your e-mail address to send this information. It is your right to stop receiving e-mail any time you choose and to only receive relevant and wanted e-mail. You can unsubscribe from the We Stand For Energy e-mail list at any time and for any reason. An unsubscribe link is included in each e-mail, along with instructions.

Age Restrictions

You must be at least 18 years old to use our Web site to send an e-mail to federal and/or state policymakers. If you are less than 18 years of age, please do not send any information about yourself, including your name, address, or e-mail address. If we discover that we have collected any personally identifying information from a child under the age of 18, we will remove that information from our database as soon as possible.

Links to Other Sites

We Stand For Energy may contain links to other sites that may not follow the same privacy policy as this site. These sites may use cookies, collect and use data, or share data in ways that our Web site would not. We are not responsible for the privacy practices or any information or materials on these other sites. Please visit these sites if you wish to review their privacy policies.

SPAM and Policy Abuse

In spite of our precautions, there remains the possibility that a person will sign up someone else without his/her permission. If you think this has happened to you, please send an e-mail with details to info@westandforenergy.com.

We reserve the right to change this policy. Any changes to this policy will be posted to this page as soon as reasonably possible, so please check this page periodically. Accessing and using this Web site constitute consent to the privacy policy then in effect.
