Information We Collect About You and How We Collect It
We collect personal and financial information from you while you use the Website; most of this collection occurs during registration. Most of the information collected is required for legal or security purposes, although some is optional. Additional information may be gathered during your subsequent use of the Website, whenever you choose to provide it; but in order to make investments through the Website, certain information must be provided.
In general we collect several types of information from you:
Personal information required to verify your identity;
Personal and financial data necessary to assess your eligibility to use the Services, invest in the investments listed; and
Information about your use of the Website and Services to aid us in providing the best experience and functionality of the Website and Services.
Information Directly from you
Certain personal information must be supplied during the investor registration process, as indicated below, in order to (a) enable you to log in to the Website, (b) establish your ability to view offering materials and to make investments through the Website (for U.S. residents, such ability is restricted to “accredited investors” with a certain level of annual income or net worth), (c) verify that you are at least 18 years of age, (d) guard against potential fraud, (e) contact you if there is a problem with your account, and (e) maintain regular communications with you as may be necessary to inform you of upcoming investment opportunities and other company updates. This basic personal information includes your name, email address, home address and phone number, date of birth, social security number and/or tax identification number, employer, and job title.
When you make an investment in one of the opportunities listed on the Website, you will again be asked for some of the same personal data as well as some additional data, such as your bank routing number and bank account number. This data is needed in order to enable us to utilize your bank account to originate funds transfers and later to make investment disbursements to you.

The website analytics toolkits will collect the information sent by your browser as part of a web page request, including cookies and your IP address. The website analytics toolkits also receive this information and their use of it is governed by their Privacy Policies.
How We Use Your Information
EnergyFunders may also disclose your personal information if required to do so:
- by law or legal process, including to respond to any government or regulatory request;

- if we believe disclosure is necessary or appropriate to protect the rights, property, or safety of EnergyFunders, our customers, Users, or others.
We may share non-personally identifiable information (such as anonymous usage data, referring/exit pages and URLs, platform types, number of clicks, etc.) with interested third parties to help them understand the usage patterns for certain EnergyFunders services.
Protection of Your Information
EnergyFunders uses commercially reasonable physical, managerial, and technical safeguards designed to secure your personal information from accidental loss and from unauthorized access, use, alteration and disclosure.

We ask you not to share your password with anyone.
