General Statement of Privacy
Western Wire (collectively “we” or “us”), a project of the Western Energy Alliance, is committed to respecting your privacy and protecting any personally identifiable information that you provide. We are the sole owners of the information we collect, and the below text details the polices of Western Wire regarding the collection, use and disclosure of information you submit to us through use of the website.
Collection of Non-Personally Identifiable Information
Our web servers automatically capture non-personally identifiable information including, but limited to, your domain name, the IP address of the web page from which you enter our site, the pages that you visit on our site, click-through rates and site navigation, and the amount of time that you spend during sessions on the site. However, this data is not matched to individual users, maintaining the anonymity of our site visitors. We may use and analyze this data for trends and to improve our site. Any non-personally identifiable information that we give to third parties will be provided in aggregate form only.
Collection of Personally Identifiable Information
When you engage in activities such as signing up for emails, you may be required to submit personal information to Western Wire. This information will include data such as your name, company name, address, phone number, and e-mail address. If you choose not to provide the information that is requested by us, you may continue to visit the site but you may be unable to access certain offers, services or secure pages.
Western Wire will not provide any personally identifiable information to any third parties without your consent. However, we reserve the right to provide personally identifiable information to third parties if we reasonably believes that this release of information is necessary: 1. To comply with legal requirements or legal process; 2. to protect and defend the rights or property of Western Wire; or 3. to protect the other users of the site or the public.
Ability to Unsubscribe
Should you receive a promotional email from us, you may “opt-out” of receiving additional promotional email communications from us by following the unsubscribe instructions presented after clicking the unsubscribe link present in each of our email communications. You may also contact us at directly firstname.lastname@example.org. This applies to promotional communications and not communications we feel are necessary to provide services on the website.

Google Analytics collects information anonymously. Google will not associate your IP address with any other data held by Google. Neither Western Wire nor Google will link, or seek to link, an IP address with the identity of a computer user. We will not associate any data gathered from this site with any Personally Identifiable Information from any source, unless you explicitly submit that information via a fill-in form on our website.
