The Solar Pool (“The Solar Pool“) operates Thesolarpool.com and may operate other websites. It is The Solar Pool’ policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.
Like most website operators, The Solar Pool collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. The Solar Pool’ purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how The Solar Pool’ visitors use its website. From time to time, The Solar Pool may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
The Solar Pool also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on Thesolarpool.com blogs/sites. The Solar Pool only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that commenter IP addresses and email addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog/site where the comment was left.
GATHERING OF PERSONALLY-IDENTIFYING INFORMATION
Certain visitors to The Solar Pool’ websites choose to interact with The Solar Pool in ways that require The Solar Pool to gather personally-identifying information.

Those who engage in transactions with The Solar Pool are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, The Solar Pool collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfil the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with The Solar Pool. The Solar Pool does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.
