As of January 1, 2004, all businesses engaged in commercial activities must comply with the Canadian government’s Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act (PIPEDA) and the Canadian Standards Association Model Code for the Protection of Personal Information that PIPEDA incorporates. These obligations extend to all Canadian businesses including Managing Energy Inc. (MEI). PIPEDA gives you rights concerning the privacy of your personal information. MEI is responsible for the personal information we collect and hold. To ensure this accountability, we have developed this policy.
The Managing Energy Inc. Privacy Coordinator is accountable for Managing Energy Inc.'s policies and practices with respect to the management of personal information, and is the individual to whom complaints and inquires can be forwarded.

This privacy statement is applicable to all MEI web-sites. MEI respects the privacy of its Internet users and will protect that privacy as vigorously as possible.
MEI does not automatically gather any personal information from you, such as your name, phone number, e-mail or address. This information is only obtained if you supply it voluntarily, usually through contacting us via e-mail, or registering in a secure portion of the site.
Any personal information you do provide is protected under the federal Privacy Act. This means that, at the point of collection, you will be informed that your personal information is being collected, the purpose for which it is being collected and that you have a right of access to the information.
Individual information provided to MEI to gain access to any MEI site will not be sold or made available to any third party.
MEI does reserve the right, however, to perform statistical analysis of user behavior and characteristics, in order to measure interest in and use of the various sections of its sites so as to improve design and navigation and to gather marketing information. Only aggregated data from these analyses, not individual data, will be used for this purpose.
As well, users should be aware that certain non-personal information and data may be automatically collected by MEI through the operation of what are called "cookies". "Cookies" are small text files that identify an individual computer's browser entering a web site. They allow the site to track that browser's movement through the site over several sessions. Through cookies, a web site can recognize repeat users, facilitate the user's access to and use of the site and allow a site to track usage behaviour that will allow content improvements.
If you do not want a cookie placed on your computer by MEI, you may disable cookies altogether by modifying the Preferences section of your web browser (under Edit/Preferences/Advanced). Note that it is possible that some aspects of MEI sites may be unavailable to you if you choose this option.
If you are willing to accept cookies, but wish to be informed of their appearance, you may turn on a warning prompt by modifying the cookie warning section in Edit/Preferences/Advanced.
