Like most website operators,
NES 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. NES’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how NES’s visitors use its website. From time to time, NES may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
NES also collects potentially personally-identifying information including, but not limited to, Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users, account holders, and for users leaving comments on www.solarenergyworld.com blogs/sites. NES may disclose 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.
