SolarMate.store California Privacy Rights:
California (CCPA) has laws giving website users certain rights and protections regarding the processing of your personal data.
SolarMate.store has chosen to follow these principles even though we do not operate in Europe because our existing business practice of only using your data for the specific reason that you give it to us means it does not cause a change in our business processes to support these laws.
When we process your personal data we will only do so in the following situations:

  • We need to use your personal data to perform our responsibilities under our contract with you (e.g. providing the Services you have requested such as asking a solar company to provide you with a solar quote).
  • We have a legitimate interest in processing your personal data. For example, we may process your personal data to send you marketing communications, to communicate with you about changes to our Services, and to improve our Services.
  • You have provided consent for us to process your personal data for a specific reason.

We do not on-sell marketing lists or other data containing your personal information to other third parties for any other reasons.
