Our websites use Secure Socket Layer (SSL) encryption technology in order to protect the information that you submit.

We work hard to ensure that our sites are secure and that they meet industry standards.
What private information do we collect and why
We ask for user ID’s, e-mail addresses, and passwords when users of our websites open accounts to download data or subscribe to receive our newsletters. All of the information is obtained with explicit consent and is provided by users who actively engage with the websites. Our databases keep that information until the moment when a user unsubscribes from the newsletter or closes her/his account with us.

Sharing of your personal information with third parties
We do not share your information with third parties except when required by law.
Also, when you share an article using the social networks buttons (for example, Facebook) on our websites, the social network that created this button will save this action.
Also, we use so-called sessions to store some parameters of your interaction with the websites to improve your experience. For example, if you select to see data in gallons as opposed to litres, this information will be stored while you use the websites so you don’t have to select gallons multiple times.
