We gather email addresses and other basic contact information in various places on our website to allow people to subscribe to Interfaith Power & Light publications and register for events.

Our website may set “cookies” to collect aggregate statistics about our website’s total number of visitors. We do not store any personally identifiable information in cookies.
Some online publications use coded hyperlinks to identify and track personally identifiable information about individuals’ interactions with our website.
How does Interfaith Power & Light use personally identifiable information?
Interfaith Power & Light partners with third-party service providers to host our website and other online publications. Third-party service providers are not permitted to use or share any personally identifiable information that we provide to them. Interfaith Power & Light does not share any of the personally identifiable information we collect with other outside parties unless we have received your specific permission to do so.
Interfaith Power & Light uses personally identifiable records of people’s interactions with our online publications to understand their interest in our work better. At some point in time, this information may be used to personalize the publications and other information individuals receive from Interfaith Power & Light.
Like most website operators, our web servers create log files. These track data on Internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, Internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, platform type, date/time stamp, and several clicks to enable us to administer the site, analyze trends, track user movement in the aggregate, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. Server log files do not contain personally identifiable information.
How does Interfaith Power & Light protect personally identifiable information?
Interfaith Power & Light takes every precaution to protect our users’ information. When users submit sensitive information via the website, their information is protected online and offline.
When our website asks users to enter sensitive information (such as credit card numbers), that information is encrypted and protected according to the latest Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards (PCI DSS).
While we use encryption to protect sensitive information online, we also do everything to protect user-information offline. Access to all of our users’ information is restricted, not just the sensitive information mentioned above. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job are granted access to personally identifiable information. All of our databases are password-protected to ensure that unauthorized users cannot access sensitive data.
