Privacy Policy

Centrica Innovations US, Inc. (“Centrica”) and its subsidiary companies, including Io Tahoe, LLC, believe it is important to protect your privacy, and so we are committed to giving you a service that meets your needs in a way that also protects your privacy. This Privacy Policy (“Policy”) explains how we may collect information about you when you use our website.

 

Collection and Use of Personal Information

 

In general, your use of our website as a site visitor is anonymous: we do not engage in any activity that will personally identify our site visitors.

 

Most of the services provided by www.io-tahoe.com can be used without the need for collection of personal information of any kind. However we may collect information from web site users or from our customers for purposes described in this Policy. Personal information (such as name, address and e-mail address for example) is collected:

 

1. When voluntarily submitted, such as when a user subscribes to a newsletter or registers for programs or conferences;

2. When you contact us with an inquiry or in response to a communication from us; or

3. From any social media account you have contacted us from.

 

Please note that while we do not explicitly collect personal information, we will treat any information held in accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998 and all applicable laws and regulations governing the protection and privacy of personal information.

 

If you are a customer or supplier of ours, we may use your personal information for the purposes of providing the services or information you or your organization have requested, contacting you about other services or events that may be of interest to you and for other legitimate business purposes, as permitted by applicable laws.  Any personal information that we have collected or stored about you or that you have provided to us, may be transferred to a future purchaser of our company and/or its assets or as part of current or future legal proceedings or as required by law enforcement.

 

Io-Tahoe uses IP addresses (static or random numbers assigned to individual computers) to help diagnose problems with our servers, to administer our website and to refine our site based on which features people use most often. As a user of our website, your IP address is used to help identify you and to gather broad demographic information to enhance your experience and help us better provide customer service.

 

Protection of Information

 

The data collected from our website is stored in a secure server with our ISP who will take periodic backups of such data but will not give or sell it to anyone else.

A “cookie” is a small piece of data that a website can send to your browser, which may then be stored on your system, to monitor how people use our site. This helps us to understand how our customers and potential customers interact with our website so we can develop and improve the design, layout and function of the site.  We also use cookies to help us to improve the performance of our website to provide you with a better user experience. We may allow our third party partners to use cookies to collect information about your browsing habits, so that they can provide relevant services to you.
