Types of Information We Collect
Personal information means information that can be used to identify and contact you. You do not need to submit personal information to access the AccessFuel Features generally. However, you may be required to submit personal information to access certain aspects of the Site, the App, and the AccessFuel Features. We may collect non-personal information such as your browser type, when you accessed the Site and from what physical location you accessed the Site. This information may be aggregated to measure the number of visits, average time spent, page views, and other statistics about users of the Site. We also may use this data to monitor the Site’s performance and to make the Site easier and more convenient to use.
We collect personal information when you create an account through the AccessFuel Features; subscribe to our newsletter; submit order forms, registration forms, feedback forms or “contact us” forms; participate in contests or surveys; purchase a product through the AccessFuel Features; or receive customer or technical support.
To create an account for the AccessFuel Features, we require you to provide certain information to create your profile, including your name, email address and password. Providing additional information beyond what is required to create an account, such as your mailing address, phone number, age, ethnicity, gender, marital status, birthdate, job title, industry, hobbies and interests and personal profile picture, is entirely optional, but enables you to gain more from the AccessFuel Features. When purchasing services through the AccessFuel Features, you will also be required to provide a credit card or other payment information. No information of this type will be collected unless you have registered for services that require it.
By submitting personal information through the Site, you authorize AccessFuel to share this personal information for the purposes identified herein and on the Site, such as responding to user inquiries, processing transactions, distributing materials, and requesting feedback.
Personal Information Collected from Third Parties
If you link your account with a social networking service such as Twitter, Facebook or LinkedIn, we may also collect information about you from those services, including, without limitation, your username, name, email, location, profile picture, contacts, followers or event attendees, and we may share it with other users of the AccessFuel Features, depending on the type of information collected and your personal settings.
We may collect additional personal information about you or event attendees by searching publicly viewable information on the Internet, including social networking sites, or by purchasing information from third parties. For example, we may utilize third party data providers to obtain information such as age, education, geographic location or ethnicity. We may share such information with other users of the AccessFuel Features, depending on the type of information collected and the applicable policies of the sources of the personal information.
Third Party Privacy Policies
How We Use Your Personal Information
We may use your personal information with non-personal information that we have collected in a manner such that the end-product does not personally identify you or any other user of the AccessFuel Features. We may make your personal information non-personally identifiable by either combining it with information about other users (aggregating your personal information with information about other users), or by removing characteristics (such as your name or email address) that make the information personally identifiable. This process is known as de-personalizing your information. You grant us a royalty-free, worldwide, perpetual, irrevocable and fully transferable right and license to use your personal information in connection with the creation and development of analytical and statistical analysis tools relating to the use of the customer data we collect in providing the AccessFuel Features (the “Analytical Data”). You hereby authorize us to make any commercial use of the Analytical Data, including without limitation, sharing the Analytical Data with third parties, provided that we do not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer any part of the Analytical Data that personally identifies you.
Do Not Track
In compliance with California legislation, AB370, effective January 1, 2014, AccessFuel’s practices in responding to “do not track” signals and collecting user information over time and across a network of websites when you visit the Site are as follows: We do not honor the request of “do not track” signals sent by your browser when you visit the Site. Additionally, AccessFuel may collect user information about your online activities over time and across different websites, or authorize third parties to do so.
The Site uses Google Analytics and other similar services to help us learn about who visits the Site and what pages are being viewed.
Our servers automatically record information that your browser sends whenever you visit the Site. This information includes your Internet Protocol address, your browser type and version, the search engine you used to find the AccessFuel Features, if any, which AccessFuel Features you use and from where, and when and how long you use them (the “Tracking Technology”). We use this information to monitor and analyze how users use the AccessFuel Features, to provide customer service and to maintain and improve the AccessFuel Features. We may also collect similar information from emails we may send to you which then help us track which emails are opened and which links are clicked by recipients. The information allows for more accurate reporting and improvement of the AccessFuel Features.
Children Under the Age of 13
We do not knowingly collect personal information from children under 13, or allow them to create an account for the AccessFuel Features. We take children’s privacy seriously, and encourage parents to play an active role in their children’s online experience at all times.
Will we share your personal information with third parties?
Sharing Your Information
We will also share the personal information we collect from you under the following circumstances:
- Asset transfers. If we become involved in a merger, acquisition or other transaction involving the sale of some or all of AccessFuel’s assets, user information, including personal information collected from you through your use of the AccessFuel Features, could be included in the transferred assets. Should such an event occur, we will use reasonable means to notify you through email and/or a prominent notice on the App and/or Site.
Additional Information You Should Know About Third Parties
What choices do you have about the collection and use of your personal information?

Please note that you cannot unsubscribe from certain correspondence from us, including messages relating to your account transactions.
What security measures do we take to safeguard your personal information?
The personal information that you provide to us is stored on servers, which are located in secured facilities with restricted access, and protected by protocols and procedures designed to ensure the security of such information. In addition, we restrict access to personal information to AccessFuel employees, independent contractors and agents who need to know this information in order to develop, operate and maintain the AccessFuel Features. All AccessFuel personnel who have access to this information are trained in the maintenance and security of such information. However, no server, computer or communications network or system, or data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect user information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us or through the use of any of the AccessFuel Features and you acknowledge and agree that you provide such information and engage in such transmissions at your own risk. Once we receive a transmission from you, we will endeavor to maintain its security on our systems.
In the event that personal information you provide to us is compromised as a result of a breach of security, when appropriate we will take reasonable steps to investigate the situation, notify you and take the necessary steps to comply with any applicable laws and regulations.
