Cookies and Other Tracking Technologies

We may use cookies, for example, to keep track of your preferences and profile information. Cookies are also used to collect general usage and volume statistical information that does not include personal information.

We use another company to place cookies on your computer to collect non-personally identifiable information to compile aggregated statistics for us about visitors to our site.

Web beacons

Our Web pages contain electronic images known as Web beacons (sometimes called single-pixel gifs). These beacons are used along with cookies to compile aggregated statistics to analyze how our site is used. This information may be used in some of our emails to let us know which emails and links have been opened by recipients. This allows us to gauge the effectiveness of our customer communications and marketing campaigns.

Our Web pages may also contain electronic images known as Web beacons (sometimes called single-pixel gifs) that are set by our third-party partners. Web beacons are used along with cookies, enabling our partners to compile aggregated statistics to analyze how our site is used.

We use a third party to gather information about how you and others use our Web site. For example, we will know how many users access a specific page and which links they clicked on. We use this aggregated information to understand and optimize how our site is used.

Links to Other Web Sites

Our site includes links to other Web sites whose privacy practices may differ from those of Sharp Propane. If you submit personal information to any of those sites, your information is governed by their privacy statements. We encourage you to carefully read the privacy statement of any Web site you visit.

Security

The security of your personal information is important to us. We follow generally accepted industry standards to protect the personal information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it. No method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure, however. Therefore, we cannot guarantee its absolute security. If you have any questions about security on our Web site, you can contact us at privacy@sharppropane.com

We provide two means for you to make a payment on your account. You can either select a third-party payment option or an EFT/bank account transfer directly from your account. The transmission of sensitive information collected through our site is encrypted using secure socket layer technology (SSL). If you choose to use a third-party payment option to make a payment on your account, the third party’s privacy statement and security practices will apply to your information. We encourage you to read that privacy statement before providing your information.
