Introduction

We value the privacy of our users. This Policy will inform you of Formation Environmental, LLC’s (the “Company” or “We”) practices for collecting, using, maintaining, protecting, and disclosing your Personal Information when you visit our website https://www.formationenvironmental.com/ (our “Website”) or use any of our online services (for example, to access our customer portal) (collectively, the Website and online services are referred to as the “Services”).

 

Please read this Policy carefully to understand our policies and practices regarding your Personal Information and how we will treat it. By accessing or using our Services, you agree to this Privacy Policy. If you do not agree with our policies and practices, your choice is not to use our Services because we will not be able to perform the services.

1. IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING CHANGES TO THIS POLICY

We post any changes we make to our Privacy Policy on this page. If we make material changes to how we treat our users’ Personal Information, we will notify you through a notice on the Website home page or by sending an email to the email address you provided to us. Your continued use of our Services following the posting of changes constitutes your acceptance of such changes to our Privacy Policy.

 

You are responsible for ensuring we have an up-to-date active and deliverable e-mail address for you, and for periodically visiting our Services and this privacy policy to check for any changes. It is important that the Personal Information, and importantly, the contact information we hold about you is accurate and current.  Please keep us informed if your Personal Information changes during your relationship with us.

 

The date the Privacy Policy was last reviewed/revised is identified at the top of this page.

2. THE DATA WE COLLECT ABOUT YOU

“Personal Information” means any information about an individual from which that person can be identified, or that relates to, describes, references or is reasonably capable of being associated with the individual.  It does not include data where the person’s identity has been removed.

 

We collect several types of Personal Information from and about users of our Services, including the following to fulfill or meet the reason you provided the information, and as further described below:

 

  • Identity Data such as first name and last name
  • Contact Data such as email address and mailing address
  • Technical/Network Data such as internet protocol (IP) addresses, your login data, your internet connection, browser type and version, time zone setting and location, browser history, browser plug-in types and versions, operating system and platform, and information about the equipment (computer or mobile device) you use to access our Services.
  • Commercial/Transaction Data such as details about transactions with you and other details of services you have purchased from us.
  • Profile Data such as details specific to the user’s profile/account.
  • Usage Data such as information about how you use our Services.
  • Marketing and Communications Data such as your preferences in receiving marketing from us and any third parties, and your communication preferences.
  • Geolocation Data such as physical location or movements.

 

We also may collect, use, and share de-identified Aggregated Data such as statistical or demographic data for any purpose.  Although Aggregated Data may be derived from your Personal Information, it is not considered Personal Information because it does not directly or indirectly identify you.  For example, we may aggregate your Usage Data to calculate the percentage of users accessing a specific Service.  However, if we combine or connect Aggregated Data with your Personal Information so that it can directly or indirectly identify you, we will treat the combined data as Personal Information which will be used in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

 

We collect Technical/Network Data. As you navigate through and interact with our Services, we may use automatic data collection technologies to collect certain Technical/Network Data about your equipment, browsing actions and patterns.  We do not use automated technologies to collect information about your online activities over time and across third-party websites or other online services (behavioral tracking).

 

We also do not maintain or associate the Technical/Network Data we collect with your Personal Information.  The Technical/Network Data helps us to improve our Services and to deliver a better and more personalized service, including by enabling us to:

  • Estimate our audience size and usage patterns.
  • Store information about your preferences, allowing us to customize our Services according to your individual interests.
  • Speed up your searches.
  • Recognize you when you return to our Services.

 

We only retain your Personal Information for as long as needed for our legitimate business purposes or for the time period specifically required or allowed by applicable law.

We use industry-standard methods of securing electronic databases of Personal Information designed to secure your Personal Information from accidental loss and from unauthorized access, use, alteration and disclosure.

  • Updates and Promotional Offers from the Company. If you do not wish to have your e-mail address used by the Company to promote or provide updates about our own products or services, you can opt-out by following the instructions in the marketing email. This opt out does not apply to communications with the Company such as emails about your accounts and our business dealings with you, and, as allowed by applicable law, requests for your participation in surveys.
  • Targeted Advertising. We do not use Personal Information to perform targeted advertising. We do not control third parties’ collection or use of your information to serve interest-based advertising. However, these third parties may provide you with ways to choose not to have your information collected or used in this way.
