Cookies:

A cookie is a small piece of information that a Web site can store on a computer and later use to recognize a user. The purpose of cookies is to enhance your ability to receive the information you want. ACCCE may use session cookies to enhance the experience of users. A session cookie expires when a user closes the browser in which the ACCCE Web site was viewed. As with all cookies, users can personalize their browser settings to reject session cookies.

IP Addresses and Log File Data:

IP addresses are ID numbers for the location of your computer or network on the Internet. Log files are recordings of the traffic to and from a server. ACCCE servers log IP addresses for systems administration and troubleshooting. We track page hits in the aggregate to track the popularity of pages that people visit. With that information we can improve the quality of the site.

Children's privacy:

The American Coalition for Clean Coal Electricity is concerned about the safety and privacy of children online. Because of this, we will make all efforts to comply with the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998 (COPPA). COPPA and its accompanying FTC regulations establish United States federal law that protects the privacy of children using the Internet. We do not and will not knowingly contact or collect personal information from children under 13. Our site is not intended to solicit information of any kind from children under 13, and we will develop our site with the capacity to block acceptance of information from children under 13 whenever age-related information is requested.

It is possible that by fraud or deception by others we may receive information given to us or pertaining to children under 13. If we are notified of this, as soon as we verify the information, we will immediately obtain parental consent or else delete the information from our servers. If you want to notify us of our receipt of information by children under 13, please do so by e-mailing us at info@CleanCoalUSA.org.

Security:

The American Coalition for Clean Coal Electricity has measures in place to protect against the loss, misuse, and alteration of visitor personally identifiable information that is under our control. For example, only select ACCCE staff and contracted individuals have access to personally identifiable information provided by visitors to non-public areas of our site. We use industry-standard encryption technologies when transferring and receiving sensitive personal and financial data from our site. Please note, however, that security breaches can occur even if reasonable steps are taken to prevent such breaches; for example, we cannot guarantee that information provided through our sites will not be illegally accessed on our servers or intercepted while being transmitted to us over the Internet. Please contact us if you believe there has been any breach of the security of CleanCoalUSA.org.

Please Note:

The American Coalition for Clean Coal Electricity plans to regularly update and add new features to our Web site. Because of this, ACCCE expects to revise its privacy policy as its site develops. Such amendments will be posted in the privacy policy section of the site. You can determine whether the privacy policy has been modified since your last visit by checking the 'Last updated' legend at the top of the policy. As stated above, the spirit of this policy will be maintained, and our policy never to sell, exchange, rent, trade, or give email lists to unaffiliated third parties will never be altered. ACCCE links to other Web sites, but is not responsible for the content or the privacy policies of those Web sites.
