Privacy Policy

 
Who is collecting your information?

The TEN web site (www.tensaves.com) is operated by The Efficiency Network, Inc., a corporation organized under the laws of Delaware with its principle place of business at 1501 Reedsdale Street, Suite 401; Pittsburgh, PA 15233 (“TEN,” “we,” “us,” “our” and “ours”).

What types of information do we collect?

We collect information in two general categories: personally identifiable information and non-personally identifiable information. Personally Identifiable Information means any information or combination of information that can be used to identify, contact, or locate you. Non-personally identifiable information consists of aggregate information or any information that does not reveal your identity.

How and when do we collect information?

We collect information that you actively provide to us, and we collect information about your use of our site through technologies such as cookies (described further below).

Information you actively provide to us

We collect information about you when you register for an account or request any of our services. When you register an account or request services, we collect information such as your name, your business name, your business email, your business address, billing address, and telephone number. The personally identifiable information that we collect, however, may vary with each registration. We will notify you of the collection of personally identifiable information at the time of your registration.

To process payments for services, we may require your name, address, phone number, email address, business name, billing address and credit card information. Such information is used primarily to process your payment. Credit card transactions are processed through industry standard Secure Socket Layer (SSL).

We also collect personally identifiable information that we receive from you as you communicate with us.
