Controlling Your Personal Data
You can make choices about the collection and use of your data by Microgrid Knowledge. You have a variety of tools to control the data collected by cookies, web beacons and similar technologies. For example, you can use controls in your internet browser to limit how the websites you visit are able to use cookies and to withdraw your consent by clearing or blocking cookies. You can also refuse to accept cookies in any pop-up box contained on the website. If you block the use of cookies, you may still gain access to some of the Microgrid Knowledge website, but you may not be able to conduct certain types of activities.

You can control the use of your personal data by “opting out” or “unsubscribing” on any emails, messages or pages where that option is provided for you.

In addition, if you want to access or control personal data that is not available via the tools above, you can contact Microgrid Knowledge at [email protected]

Maintaining and Safeguarding Information
We utilize industry standard information technology security to keep users’ information secure. Notwithstanding, as effective as our reasonable security measures may be, no security system is impenetrable. We cannot guarantee the security of our databases and cannot guarantee that personally identifiable information supplied to us will not be intercepted or accessed.

We also attempt to have privacy protection controls in place with our vendors and business partners in order to ensure that users’ personal information is protected from unauthorized access or disclosure. All third-party’s use and sharing of your information will be subject to such provider’s privacy and consent policies. One such provider we use is Google. For Google’s privacy policies and user consent policy go to https://policies.google.com. By use of Microgrid Knowledge’s website, you expressly consent to Google’s privacy policies and, if you are a user located in the EEA and/or UK, to Google’s EU User Consent Policy found at http://policies.google.com.

Though we endeavor to use generally accepted industry vendors and business partners, we are not responsible for any third-party’s use or sharing of your information. Additional vendors and business partners we use that may collect, receive and/or use your information are listed at the end of this policy along with a link to their respective privacy and user consent policies. We encourage you to review each one carefully.

All of our employees must abide by our privacy policy. Only authorized employees are permitted to access users’ personally identifiable information. If an employee violates our privacy policies, he or she will be subject to our disciplinary action, up to and including termination. Nevertheless, Microgrid Knowledge cannot guarantee that users’ information will be completely secure.

Linked Sites and Third-Party Use of Information
Other websites that you visit, including any such sites linked from or to our website (such as websites of licensors, if any), may have separate privacy policies or no policy at all. Other websites may use personally identifiable information differently than our policy permits so we strongly encourage you to review the privacy policies of any third-party site before you provide your personally identifiable information thereon. You agree that we are not responsible for the unauthorized third-party use of your information.

How to Update Your Information
It is important that we keep only the most accurate, up-to-date information about you in our records. Therefore, if you believe that our records contain information that needs to be updated, you can email us at [email protected] to correct or update your contact information. You may also email us at [email protected] to remove your name, telephone, postal and email addresses from lists that we maintain for the purpose of sending out notices or updates, or to request that we refrain from disclosing your personally identifiable information to third parties.
