Collection of Information from Users
Energy Innovation News is an interactive website that may collect different types of information from its readers as well as other users. However, the type of data being collected depends upon the type of interaction that the user is involved in. On this basis, the data collection can be categorized into two.
This type of information is not associated with an individual in any way. It means that it is quite general and cannot be used for tracking of any sort. Some examples include the area from which a user is, the ISP details and the device the user is browsing the website from. It needs to be noted that this kind of information can’t be consisting of names or email addresses. Even so, Energy Innovation News makes sure that this information is kept at the best secure locations.
This type of information is more sensitive since it can link to an individual. For instance, this type includes a lot of information such as your email address, physical address, name, and credentials like a password. It may be required by the website when you are performing actions like placing a comment or subscribing to the email newsletter that we are offering. We maintain the highest security and retention policies for this kind of data, but we may have to provide it to the authorities when demanded.
As we said earlier, Energy Innovation News offers the highest amount of security for both kinds of information.
Apart from the methods mentioned above of data collection, Energy Innovation News will be logging the IP addresses of devices that the website is accessed from. This is used for statistical purposes, such as knowing the number of visits and other metrics.
