I. The Types of Information We Collect About You

When you enter and browse the Site, we may collect two different types of information about you: information you provide to us, and information we collect through technology.

A. Information You Provide to Us

In order to obtain access to certain information or materials provided via the Site, you may have to provide information that we collect and store in a way that allows us to relate it to you personally, including but not limited to your name, e-mail address, mailing address, phone number, and facsimile number. We refer to such information as personally identifiable information.

B. Information We Collect Through Technology

We may collect information about you through technology. For example, we may collect your IP address each time you request a page during a visit to the Site. (An IP address is often associated with the portal through which you enter the Internet.) At times, we may also use IP addresses to collect information regarding the frequency with which users browse various parts of our site. The Site may also use other technical methods to track and analyze the traffic patterns on the Site, such as the frequency with which our users visit various parts of the Site. We may collect the information from use of these technical methods in a form that is personally identifiable.

II. How Personally Identifiable Information We Collect About You is Used

We may use your personally identifiable information in several ways.

Although we do not sell your personal information to third parties, we may use or share certain personally identifiable information we collect about you when you visit and browse the Site as part of our normal business operations, or to send you administrative communications either about your interactions with us or about features of the Site, including any future changes to this Privacy Policy.

We may also store your personally identifiable information and use it for marketing, research and other business purposes, and we may associate your personally identifiable information with other information we collect about you.

We will disclose personal information when we believe in good faith that such disclosures are required by law, regulation, legal process or governmental request. We may also in good faith do so to help enforce our Terms and Conditions of Website Use, protect your safety or security, including the safety and security of property that belongs to you, and/or protect the safety and security of our websites, databases and/or third parties, including the safety and security of tangible and/or intangible property that belongs to us or to third parties. Also, in the event that First Reserve, or substantially all of its assets, are acquired, user information may be one of the transferred assets. First Reserve reserves the right to use any personal information in any manner permitted by law.

III. How Non-Personally Identifiable Information We Collect About You is Used

Non-personally identifiable information is information that does not personally identify you, including anonymous information and aggregate data. We may use this information to understand better how our visitors use the Site, improve the Site, and for other similar purposes. We may combine this information with personally identifiable information. First Reserve reserves the right to use this information in any manner permitted by law.

IV. Protection of Information; No Guarantee of Security

We endeavor to protect your personal information. We use both technical and procedural methods to maintain the integrity and security of our databases, including firewalls. Please be aware though that, despite our best efforts, no security measures are perfect or impenetrable. We will not be responsible or liable for any damages, losses or causes of action arising out of or in connection with the disclosure of your personally identifiable information.

V. Amendments to this Privacy Policy

We may revise this Privacy Policy from time to time. If we make any substantial change to our Privacy Policy, we will notify you by posting the updated Privacy Policy here. Any such changes will be effective upon posting.

Access to this Site from countries or territories where such access is illegal is prohibited.
