Toledo Solar Inc. (“us”, “we”, “our,” or “Toledo Solar”) operates the www.Toledo-Solar.com website (the “Site”). This page informs you of our policies regarding the collection, use and disclosure of personal information when you use the Site.
The Site is not intended for children under the age of 16 and Toledo Solar does not knowingly collect any information from children under 16 years old through the Site. If the parent or guardian of a child under 16 believes that the child has provided us with any information, the parent or guardian of that child should contact us if they want this information deleted from our files.
The Information We Collect
Information and Content You Provide; Your Use of the Site. We collect the data, content, communications, and other information that you provide when you use the Site, including but not limited to, when you sign up for an account or message or communicate on the Site. We may collect information regarding how you use the Site, the content that you engage with, the actions you take, the other users that you interact with, as well as the time, frequency and duration of your activities.
Information Provided by Partners. We may also receive information provided by other third parties, such as advertisers or businesses, including information about your activities outside of Site. Such information may include information about your device, websites you visit, advertisements you view, and how you use their products or Site. We require partners to have lawful rights to collect, use and share your data before providing such data to us.
Website Visitor Information. Like most website operators, Toledo Solar collects information of the sort that web browsers, mobile applications and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request when visitors use the Site. Toledo Solar’s purpose in collecting this information is to better understand how visitors use the Site. From time to time, Toledo Solar may release non-personally identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its Site. We also gather information about your interactions with our Site. Toledo Solar also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses and may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to the Site. For instance, Toledo Solar may monitor the Site to help identify spam. We also may use these technologies to collect information about your online activities over time and across third-party websites or other online services (behavioral tracking). In addition to log data, we may also collect information about the device you’re using to access the Site, including the type of device, the operating system, device settings, device identifiers and crash data. Whether we collect some or all of this information often depends on what type of device you’re using and its settings. To learn more about the information your device makes available to us, please review the policies of your device manufacturer or software provider.
Analytic Tools; Cookies. We use various analytic tools which serve the purpose of measuring, analyzing and optimizing our marketing measures. In particular, we may use the following tools:
- Google Tag Manager helps to manage website tags through a single interface. The tool itself (implementing the tags) triggers other tags that may themselves collect (personal) data. However, Google Tag Manager does not access this data.
We also use “cookies” to collect information in order to improve our Site. Cookies are files with a small amount of data, which may include an anonymous unique identifier. Cookies are sent to your browser from a web site and transferred to your device. You can instruct your browser to refuse all cookies or to indicate when a cookie is being sent. The Help feature on most browsers provides information on how to accept cookies, disable cookies or to notify you when receiving a new cookie. If you do not accept cookies, you may not be able to use some features of the Site so we recommend that you leave them turned on. We may also use remarketing cookies to advertise on third party web sites, such as Twitter and Facebook, after you use the Site.
How We Use Your Information
We use the information we collect to provide you full access and functionality of the Site. Accordingly, your information may be used for the following purposes: (i) to provide and improve our Site; (ii) to administer your use of our Site and accounts; (iii) to enable users to enjoy and easily navigate the Site; (iv) to better understand your needs and interests by analyzing your use and interaction with the Site; (v) to fulfill requests or to respond to questions or comments you may make; (vi) to personalize your experience; (vii) to provide you with announcements, notifications and advertisements related to your interests and use of the Site and other communications such as electronic newsletters, promotional e-mails or similar messaging; (viii) to help advertisers or other partners measure the effectiveness, and understand the types of people that use the Site; (ix) to provide service announcements; (x) to protect against users seeking to hack into the Site; (xi) to assess the level of general interest in the Site; (xii) to provide a more tailored and consistent experience on all devices and platforms; and (xiii) for any other purpose with your consent.
How We Disclose Your Information
Except as otherwise provided in this policy, we disclose the potentially personally-identifying information you disclose to Toledo Solar only to those of our employees, contractors, representatives, and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on our behalf or to provide the Site, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country and by using the Site, you consent to the transfer of such information to them.
Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations or as described above, we disclose personally-identifying only when required to do so by law, or when we believe in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Toledo Solar, third parties or the public at large. If you send us a request (for example via chat, a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. We may be required to disclose your personal information to law enforcement or in connection with a civil or criminal proceeding or investigation. We may also disclose your personally-identifying information if you expressly consent to the disclosure.
In addition, in some cases, we may choose to buy or sell assets. In these types of transactions, user information is typically one of the business assets that is transferred. Moreover, if Toledo Solar or substantially all of its assets were acquired, or in the unlikely event that Toledo Solar goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur and that any acquirer of Toledo Solar may continue to use your personal and non-personal information only as set forth in this policy. Otherwise, we will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone.
We may disclose non-personally identifiable aggregated information about our users without restriction.
Do Not Track
Some web browsers may transmit “do-not-track” signals to the Site with which the user communicates. Because of differences in how web browsers incorporate and activate this feature, it is not always clear whether users intend for these signals to be transmitted, or whether they even are aware of them. We currently do not take action in response to these signals.

We Do Not Sell Your Personal Information
Toledo Solar does not, to the best of our knowledge, sell or rent personal information that we have collected or retain about you to any other third-party for any purpose. Accordingly, we do not offer individuals the ability to “opt-out” of the selling or renting of personal information because we do not engage in those practices.
You have the right to opt-out of receiving electronic direct marketing communications from us. All electronic direct marketing communications that you may receive from us, such as e-mail messages, will give you an option of not receiving such communications from us in the future.
