Cookies and other Technical Information

We may send “cookies” to your computer primarily to enhance your online experience and to store your preferences, record session information, record user-specific information on what pages users access or visit, alert visitors to new areas that we think might be of interest to them when they return to our site, record past activity in order to provide better service when visitors return to our site, ensure that visitors are not repeatedly sent the same banner ads, or to customize site content based on visitors’ browser type or other information that the visitor sends.  Cookies are files that can identify you as a unique visitor and store your personal preferences as well as technical information (including click-through and click-stream data).  Cookies can either be permanent (i.e., they remain on your computer until you delete them) or temporary (i.e., they last only until you close your browser). 

We may also use “Web beacons” that monitor your use of our site. Web beacons are small strings of code that provide a method for delivering a graphic image on a Web page for the purpose of transferring data, such as the IP (Internet Protocol) address of the computer that downloaded the page on which the Web beacon appears, the URL (Uniform Resource Locator) of the page on which the Web beacon appears, the time the page containing the Web beacon was viewed, the type of browser that fetched the Web beacon and the identification number of any cookie on the computer previously placed by that server. When corresponding with you via HTML capable e-mail, Web beacons let us know whether you received and opened our e-mail.

If you choose to furnish the site with personally identifiable information, this information can be stored in or linked to other data stored in the cookies/Web beacons.

By accepting this Privacy Policy, you specifically agree to our use of cookies and Web beacons as described herein.

You may adjust your browser to reject cookies from us or from any other Web site. Additionally, by setting your Web browser to display HTML e-mails as text only, you may be able to prevent the use of some Web beacons. Please consult the "Help" section of your browser for more information.  However, there is certain information on our site that can only be accessed in conjunction with cookies or similar devices and you should be aware that disabling cookies or similar devices might prevent you from accessing some of our content.

Disclosure of Personally Identifiable Information

We try to limit our disclosures of personally identifiable information to those that are important to carrying on our business or the mission of our site.  For example, by posting content on our site (e.g., a video), you will be affirmatively consenting to our freely disclosing that content to others, along with any other information you have provided to us, other than your e-mail address and password.

We may disclose personally identifiable information in response to legal process--for example, in response to a court order or a subpoena.  We also may disclose such information in response to a government agency’s request or when we believe it is necessary to investigate, prevent or take action regarding illegal activities, suspected fraud, situations involving potential threats to the physical safety of any person, violations of our terms of use or as otherwise required by law. In addition, if Energy Trek™ or Pajamas Media® is acquired by or merged with another entity, we reserve the right, in any of these circumstances, to transfer or assign the information we have collected from our visitors and members as part of such merger, acquisition, sale or other change in control.  In the unlikely event of our bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization, receivership or assignment for the benefit of creditors, or the application of laws or equitable principles affecting creditors’ rights generally, we may not be able to control how your personal information is treated, transferred or used.

We instruct agents and contractors of Energy Trek™ who have access to personally identifiable information provided through this site to protect this information in a manner that is consistent with this Privacy Policy including not using the information for any purpose other than to carry out the services they are performing for Energy Trek™.
