At the Permian Basin Water In Energy Conference (PBWIEC®) we value and protect our customers' privacy.
What personally identifying information and other data we collect
For each visitor to our website, we receive information concerning the usage of our website by that visitor, including the visitor's IP address, information concerning the visitor’s browser and/or operating systems, and other access-related information. In addition, we (or a third party acting on our behalf) may use "cookies" or other tools in order to learn such things as whether an email is opened, how a visitor uses our website, which pages are viewed and for how long, and whether a visitor returns to our website.
We also collect data that you personally enter into the Website, and data that you provide to us via your sponsorship, registration or contact process. The information that may be collected includes your name, mailing address, email address, phone number, and payment information (e.g., credit card number and billing address). Information may also be collected when you interact with us on social media, such as when you "like" us or when you use one of our hashtags.
How we use information and how you can control such use
The information we collect is used to process orders, to bill and collect payment, to resolve problems, to contact customers or prospective customers, to meet legal concerns or obligations, and to maintain or improve our products and services, including our email or other marketing, our website, and any other of our Internet or other business activities.
If you supply us with your postal address, you may receive mailings from us with information on new products and services or upcoming events. If you do not wish to receive such mailings, you may be removed from our postal mailing list by requesting to be removed using either of the Contact/Opt-Out Methods listed below.
Persons who supply us with their telephone numbers will only receive telephone contact from us concerning purchases or direct inquiries made by such persons.
The information that you give us and information about your order may be combined with other personally identifiable information (such as demographic and past purchase history) available from our records and other sources. This information will be used to make our future marketing efforts more efficient. We rarely employ marketing efforts and will never give or sell your information to any other organization or individual.
We may provide personally identifiable or other information, without notice to our customer, in response to a lawful request from a law enforcement or government agency or in response to a formal request in a civil action that on its face meets the requirements for such a request. In addition, we may provide personally identifiable information, without notice to our customer, to credit bureaus or collection agencies if we are permitted or required to do so by law.
Use of "Cookies" and Similar Tools
“Cookies” and similar tools are essentially small pieces of information that are delivered and received by our website (or, in some instances, by our emails or by banner ads that we may purchase for use on another organization’s website) and stored by your browser on your computer’s hard drive. We and our third-party service providers may use “cookies” or similar tools to learn about visitors’ preferences and Internet session information, to record user-specific information including state of residence or the web pages that a visitor accesses and for how long (commonly referred to as "analytics"). Among other things, “cookies” and similar tools permit us to tailor offerings to website visitor preferences, to improve our website and email marketing, and to provide better service to return visitors to our website. We do not use any information gathered using “cookies” or similar tools for any purpose other than our Internet service, internal business, and marketing objectives. To opt out of our cookies used for these purposes , click here.

Our "Do Not Track" Policy
We employ reasonable security measures to protect sensitive information, including personally identifiable information, in our possession. While such measures include encryption and authentication measures to protect against the loss, misuse, or alteration of information that we collect from customers or other visitors on our website, no information transmissions on the Internet are completely secure. Consequently, while we strive to secure your personal information, we cannot guarantee such security, and you ultimately provide such information at your own risk.
We do not knowingly permit anyone under the age of 13 to purchase products on our website without parental consent. We encourage parents to supervise and participate in their children’s Internet activities, and we urge children to exercise caution and consult their parents before providing any personally identifiable information on the Internet.
