Jared McLaughlin ("2nd Energy ") operates 2ndenergytx.com and may operate other websites. It is 2nd Energy's policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.
Like most website operators, 2nd Energy 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. 2nd Energy's purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how 2nd Energy's visitors use its website. From time to time, 2nd Energy may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
2nd Energy also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on 2ndenergytx.com blogs/sites. 2nd Energy only discloses 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.
Certain visitors to 2nd Energy's websites choose to interact with 2nd Energy in ways that require 2nd Energy to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that 2nd Energy gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up at 2ndenergytx.com to provide a username and email address. Those who engage in transactions with 2nd Energy are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, 2nd Energy collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor's interaction with 2nd Energy . 2nd Energy does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.

Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using 2nd Energy's websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. 2nd Energy will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, 2nd Energy discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when 2nd Energy believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of 2nd Energy , third parties or the public at large.
