What information does CVR Energy collect from me?
CVR Energy may collect information in several ways. For example, in the future we will offer you the ability to inquire about employment with our company in which case we will ask you for personal information such as your job preferences, employment history, employment status, references, skills, contact information and e-mail address. In the future, we may have pricing information available on the Web site about our products and services, in which case we may gather some personal information when you register as a customer or potential customer using our account interface. During registration, we will ask for your contact information, information about your demand for our products and services, and your e-mail address. Once you register, you are no longer anonymous to CVR Energy and are able to take full advantage of our services. In addition to registration, we may ask you for information at other times, such as when you report a problem with our site or services, or contact the company via the corporate e-mail address. If you contact CVR Energy, we may keep a record of that correspondence.
If you believe that any inaccurate or inappropriate information has been obtained or disseminated through your use of this Web site, you should contact a representative of CVR Energy.
What are cookies and how does CVR Energy use them?
How does CVR Energy use the information?
CVR Energy's primary goal in collecting information is to improve the site and provide the user with the best possible experience on the site. For example, by using the information collected, we are able to provide you with an easy to use and readily available forum to access your CVR Energy account information. We will also use your personal information to notify you of other products or services available from CVR Energy and its affiliates. In connection with our employment inquiry section, we will provide your information to our personnel. We may contact you regarding your request for employment.
Only CVR Energy and its affiliates and service providers will have access to individuals' account information or employment information. We also may do research on our users' demographics and behavior based on the information provided to us upon registration, gathered from transaction activity, from our server log files or from surveys. This research may be compiled, analyzed or sold on an aggregated basis, which does not include information identifying individual users. CVR Energy also may share this aggregated data with business partners or other third parties.
Who is collecting information?
With whom does CVR Energy share my information?
We will not disclose any of your personally identifiable information to third parties except when we have your permission or under special circumstances, such as when we believe in good faith that the law requires it or under the circumstances described below. The following describes some of the ways that your information may be disclosed.
Data in the Aggregate: We may disclose "blinded" aggregated data and user statistics to prospective partners and other third parties, and for other lawful purposes. Blinded data is data which does not identify an individual person.
We occasionally hire other companies to provide limited services on our behalf, including packaging and mailing, answering customer questions about products or services, sending postal mail, providing investor information and processing data. We will only provide those companies the information they need to deliver the service, and they are prohibited from using that information for any other purpose.
As we continue to develop our business, we may buy or sell businesses or assets. In such transactions, confidential customer information generally is one of the transferred business assets. In the event of a transaction involving the sale of some or all of CVR Energy's businesses, customer and site visitor information may be one of the transferred assets.
How can I control my personal information?
CVR Energy offers its customers choices for the collection, use and sharing of personal information. You may contact us if you wish to view, edit or delete your personal information from our database, and we will use commercially reasonable efforts to accommodate your request.
How does CVR Energy protect financial-related information?
Keeping your personal financial information private is vitally important to us. As a matter of policy and long-time business practice, CVR Energy does not sell information provided by its customers. Any user statistics that we may provide to prospective partners regarding financial matters are provided in the aggregate only and do not include any personally identifiable information about any individual user.
What security precautions are in place to protect the loss, misuse or alteration of my information?
We use encryption technology for passwords and registration information. Remember to sign out of your CVR Energy account and close your browser window when you have finished your work. This is to ensure that others cannot access your account by using your computer when you are away from it. Because of the global nature of the Internet, when you give us information, that information may be sent electronically to servers outside of the country where you originally entered the information. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. Except as discussed above or otherwise designated, this site does not use security encryption measures. Therefore, information that you disclose by use of this site (as with any site that is non-secure), by posting a message or using e-mail, potentially could be collected and used by others. This may result in unsolicited messages from third parties or use of such information by third parties for their own purposes, legal or illegal. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, CVR Energy cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us or from our services, and you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your transmission, we use our best efforts to ensure its security on our systems.
What else should I know about my privacy?
Please keep in mind that whenever you voluntarily disclose information online, that information is accessible to other customers and users. Ultimately, you are solely responsible for maintaining the secrecy of your passwords and/or any account information. Please be careful and responsible whenever you are online.
