Information Obtained from Third Parties

If you provide us personal information about others, or if others give us your information, we will only use that information for the specific reason for which it was provided to us.

Information Sharing

We do not sell, trade or otherwise transfer your personal information to third parties. We will share your personal information with third parties only in the ways that are described in this privacy statement.

We may also disclose your personal information as required by law such as to comply with a regulation, subpoena, or similar legal process when we believe in good faith that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights, protect your safety or the safety of others, investigate fraud, or respond to a government request. If Kiwi Energy is involved in a merger, acquisition, or sale of all or a portion of its assets, you will be notified via email and/or a prominent notice on our website of any change in ownership or uses of your personal information, as well as any choices you may have regarding your personal information, to any other third party with your prior consent to do so.

Third Party E-Commerce Solutions Provider

Our e-commerce solutions provider hosts our shopping cart. They host our ordering system, and collect your billing information directly from you for the purpose of processing your order. This company does not use this information for any other purpose.

Submitted Information

Any information, including but not limited to remarks, suggestions, ideas, graphics or other submissions, communicated to Kiwi Energy by you through this website, including but not limited to intellectual property related thereto, will be treated as non-confidential and non-proprietary and Kiwi Energy may, without compensation, copy, incorporate, distribute or otherwise use such communications for any commercial or non-commercial purpose. Kiwi Energy is under no obligation to post or use any submission you may provide, and Kiwi Energy may remove any submission at any time in its sole discretion. Notwithstanding the foregoing, all personal data provided to Kiwi Energy will be handled in accordance with our Privacy Policy. You are prohibited from posting or transmitting to or from this website any unlawful, libellous, defamatory, obscene, scandalous, inflammatory, pornographic or profane material.

Links to Other Websites

Our Site includes links to other Websites, including Participating Partners in our Ecogold Loyalty Program, whose privacy practices may differ from those of Kiwi Energy and Ecogold. If you submit personal information to any of those sites, their privacy policy governs your information. We encourage you to carefully read the privacy policy of any Website you visit.

Protecting Your Information

When we collect personal information directly from you, we follow generally accepted industry standards to protect the personal information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it. Kiwi Energy and Ecogold are participants in the TRUSTe Privacy Seal Program. TRUSTe is an independent organization whose mission is to advance privacy and trust in the networked world. This Website has agreed to have its privacy practices monitored for compliance by TRUSTe.  If you have questions or concerns regarding this policy, you should first contact us at info@ecogold.us or info@kiwienergy.us. If you do not receive acknowledgment of your inquiry, or if your inquiry has not been satisfactorily addressed, you should then contact TRUSTe. TRUSTe will then serve as a liaison with the website to resolve your concerns.  No method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure, however.  Therefore we cannot guarantee its absolute security.

In order to make a purchase from us, you must use our shopping cart provider to finalize and pay for your order. To protect security of our customers’ online transaction, the payment gateway sits inside the secure login. The site uses encryption technology such as Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) approved to ensure security of information during data transport. Its Privacy Policy and security practices will also apply to your information. We encourage you to read that Privacy Policy before providing your information. However, Ecogold and Kiwi Energy will only use customers’ personal information to fulfil orders and send relevant program communication. Any third party involvement is purely for the fulfilment of these orders.

General

These Terms shall be governed in all respects in accordance with the laws of the State of New York without regard to the conflict or choice of law rules thereof. Courts sitting in the state of New York, federal and state shall have exclusive jurisdiction over any dispute arising hereunder. You agree that no joint venture, partnership, employment, or agency relationship exists between you and Kiwi Energy as a result of this agreement or use of the website. If any part of this agreement is determined to be invalid or unenforceable pursuant to applicable law including without limitation the warranty disclaimers and liability limitations set forth above, then the invalid or unenforceable provision shall be deemed superseded by a valid, enforceable provision that most closely matches the intent of the original provision and the remainder of the agreement shall remain in effect. A printed version of this agreement and of any notice given in electronic form shall be admissible in judicial or administrative proceedings based on or relating to this agreement, to the same extent and subject to the same conditions as other business documents and records originally generated and maintained in printed form.

Kiwi Energy reserves the right to change its Website Privacy Policy and Terms of Use at any time, and will immediately post the updated information on its Website.

Restriction, Suspension and Termination

Kiwi Energy may restrict, suspend or terminate your access to the Site and/or your ability to avail of any of the services on the Site, including interactive services, if we believe that you have breached these Terms at any time. Any such restriction, suspension or termination will be without prejudice to any rights that we may have against you with respect to your breach of these Terms.
