Aggregate Information

Personal information does not include “aggregate” information. Aggregate information is data we collect about a group or category of products, services, or customers, from which individual customer identities have been removed and a specific person cannot be identified through such information. Aggregate information is any information or data we collect from inverters and power optimizers available to you via the Utility Resource Guide Monitoring Platform. In other words, information about how you use a service may be collected and combined with information about how others use the same service, but no Personal Information will be included in the resulting data. Likewise, information about the products or services you use or purchase may be collected and combined with information about the products and services used or purchased by others. Still, no Personal Information will be included in the resulting data. Among others, aggregate data helps understand trends and customer needs so that new products and services can be considered and so existing products and services can be tailored to customer desires.

Utility Resource Guide appreciates the importance of safeguarding the privacy of your Personal Information that may be provided to us. Utility Resource Guide does use and disclose de-identified aggregate information to evaluate and improve our services and tailor our products for commercial purposes. Utility Resource Guide may choose at its sole discretion to transfer, sell, provide, or share such information with third parties, including to Utility Resource Guide’s business partners for commercial purposes.
