Cookies, Web Beacons and IP Addresses

We use commonly-used information-gathering tools, such as cookies and Web beacons, to collect information as you navigate our website. This section describes the types of Web Site Navigational Information that may be collected on our website and how this information may be used.

Cookies – Cookies are small files that a site or its service provider transfers to your computer’s hard drive through your Web browser (if you allow) that enables the site’s or service provider’s systems to recognize your browser and capture and remember certain information.  For instance, we use cookies as part of our access renewal procedure for whitelisting IP addresses to websites being developed on our systems.  They are also used to help us understand your preferences based on previous or current site activity, which enables us to provide you with improved services.  We also use cookies to help us compile aggregate data about site traffic and site interaction so that we can offer better site experiences and tools in the future.

We use cookies to:

You can choose to have your computer warn you each time a cookie is being sent, or you can choose to turn off all cookies.  You do this through your browser settings.  Each browser is a little different, so look at your browser’s Help menu to learn the correct way to modify your cookies.  We use cookies that are session-based and persistent-based.  Session cookies exist only during one session.  They disappear from your computer when you close your browser or turn off your computer.  Persistent cookies remain on your computer after you close your browser or turn off your computer.  Please note that if you disable your Web browser’s ability to accept cookies, you will still be able to navigate our website but the functionality and features of our Services may be affected and you may not be able to successfully use our services.  Similarly, if you disable JavaScript, some features of our website may not function properly and some areas of our website may not function at all.

If you have chosen to identify yourself to us, we use session cookies containing encrypted information to allow us to uniquely identify you.  Each time you log into our website, a session cookie containing an encrypted, unique identifier that is tied to your account is placed your browser.  These session cookies allow our system to uniquely identify you when you are logged into our services and to process your online transactions and requests.  Session cookies are required to use our Services.

We use persistent cookies that only our system can read and use to identify browsers that have previously visited our website.  When you purchase our services or provide us with personal information, a unique identifier is assigned you.  This unique identifier is associated with a persistent cookie that our system places on your Web browser.  We are especially careful about the security and confidentiality of the information stored in persistent cookies.  For example, we do not store account numbers or passwords in persistent cookies.  If you disable your Web browser’s ability to accept cookies, you will be able to navigate the Enterprise’s Web site but you will not be able to successfully use the Services.

Web Beacons – We use Web beacons alone or in conjunction with cookies to compile information about our Customers and Visitors’ usage of our website and interaction with emails sent from us.  Web beacons are clear electronic images that can recognize certain types of information on your computer (such as cookies), when you viewed a particular Website tied to the Web beacon and a description of a Website tied to the Web beacon.  For example, our system may place Web beacons in marketing emails that notify us when you click on a link in the email that directs you to our website.  We use Web beacons to operate and improve our website and email communications.

IP Addresses – When you visit our website, our system collects your Internet Protocol (“IP”) addresses to track and aggregate non-personal information.  For example, we use IP addresses to monitor the regions from which our Customers and Visitors navigate our website.

Do Not Track – Currently, various browsers – including Internet Explorer, Firefox, and Safari – offer a “do not track” or “DNT” option that relies on a technology known as a DNT header, which sends a signal to websites visited by the user about the user’s browser DNT preference setting.  We do not currently commit to responding to browsers’ DNT signals with respect to our website, in part, because no common industry standard for DNT has been adopted by industry groups, technology companies or regulators, including no consistent standard of interpreting user intent.  We take privacy and meaningful choice seriously and will make efforts to continue to monitor developments around DNT browser technology and the implementation of a standard.

Public forums

We may provide bulletin boards, blogs, or chat rooms on the Grey Power website.  Any personal information you choose to submit in such a forum may be read, collected, or used by others who visit these forums, and may be used to send you unsolicited messages.  We are not responsible for the personal information you choose to submit in these forums.

Third-party disclosure

We do not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer to outside parties your personally identifiable information unless we provide users with advance notice.  This does not include website hosting partners and other parties who assist us in operating our website, conducting our business, or serving our users, so long as those parties agree to keep this information confidential.  We may also release information when its release is appropriate to comply with the law, enforce our site policies or protect ours or others’ rights, property or safety.

Third-party links

Occasionally, at our discretion, we may include or offer third-party products or services on our website.  These third-party sites have separate and independent privacy policies.  We therefore have no responsibility or liability for the content and activities of these linked sites.  Nonetheless, we seek to protect the integrity of our site and welcome any feedback about these sites.


Google’s advertising requirements can be summed up by Google’s Advertising Principles.  They are put in place to provide a positive experience for users.

We may use Google AdSense Advertising on our website.

Google, as a third-party vendor, uses cookies to serve ads on our site.  Google’s use of the DART cookie enables it to serve ads to our users based on previous visits to our site and other sites on the Internet.  Users may opt-out of the use of the DART cookie by visiting the Google Ad and Content Network privacy policy.

We have implemented the following:

We, along with third-party vendors such as Google, use first-party cookies (such as the Google Analytics cookies) and third-party cookies (such as the DoubleClick cookie) or other third-party identifiers together, to compile data regarding user interactions with ad impressions and other ad service functions as they relate to our website.
