SC Fuels encourages you to review the privacy statements of websites you choose to link to from SC Fuels so that you can understand how those websites collect, use, and share your information. SC Fuels is not responsible for the privacy statements or other content on websites outside of our website.

  1. Use of Your Personal Information

SC Fuels collects and uses your personal information to operate the SC Fuels website and deliver the Services. SC Fuels also uses your personally identifiable information to inform you of other products or services available from SC Fuels and its affiliates. SC Fuels may also contact you via surveys to conduct research about your opinion of current services or of potential new services that may be offered.

SC Fuels does not sell, rent, or lease its customer lists to third parties except as provided by this privacy policy. SC Fuels may, from time to time, contact you on behalf of external business partners about a particular offering that may be of interest to you. In those cases, your unique personally identifiable information (e-mail address, name, telephone number) is not transferred to the third party. In addition, SC Fuels may share data with trusted third party service providers to process payments, help us perform statistical analysis, send you email or postal mail, provide customer support, or arrange for deliveries. All such third parties are prohibited from using your personal information except to provide these services to SC Fuels, and they are required to maintain the confidentiality of your information.

SC Fuels keeps track of the websites and pages our customers visit within SC Fuels to determine what SC Fuels services are the most popular. This data is used to deliver customized content and advertising within SC Fuels to customers whose behavior indicates that they are interested in a particular subject area.

SC Fuels uses your personal information to provide you with employment opportunities.

  1. How Do We Share Personal Information?

To Users or the Public with Your Consent. We may share your username and posts with other users with your consent. The settings you choose for your posts will determine how much information is shared with other users and/or the public.

Affiliates and Service Providers. We share your information with our third-party service providers and any subcontractors as required to offer you our products and services. For example, we use Constant Contact to send our email marketing campaigns.

Third Party Marketing and Advertising Organizations. We share your information with third party marketing and advertising partners to provide tailored advertising on our Sites and other websites that you may visit.

Third Party Links and Websites. Our Sites may contain links to and from the websites of third parties. If you follow a link to any of these websites, please note that these websites have their own privacy policies and that we do not accept any responsibility or liability for these policies. Please check these policies before you submit any data to these websites.

Disclosures Required by Law. SC Fuels will disclose your personal information, without notice, if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to: (a) conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on SC Fuels or the site; (b) protect and defend the rights or property of SC Fuels; and, (c) act under exigent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of SC Fuels, or the public. If we choose to sell some of all of our business or assets to another company in connection with a merger, acquisition, bankruptcy, or other business transaction, we may disclose and/or transfer your personal information to such company.

  1. How Do We Respond to ‘Do Not Track’ Signals?

Do Not Track (“DNT”) is a privacy preference that users can set in certain web browsers. DNT is a way for users to inform websites and services that they do not want certain information about their webpage visits collected over time and across websites or online services. We recognize and respond to browser-initiated DNT signals, as the Internet industry is currently still working toward defining exactly what DNT means, what it means to comply with DNT, and a common approach to responding to DNT.

  1. Cookies

To make our Sites and services work properly, we sometimes place small data files called cookies on your device. A cookie is a small text file that a website saves on your computer or mobile device when you visit the site. It enables the website to remember your actions and preferences (such as login, shopping cart, or other preferences) over a period of time, so you do not have to keep re-entering them whenever you come back to the site or browse from one page to another. To learn more, please see our Cookie Policy.  https://www.scfuels.com/cookie-policy/

Google Analytics. We may use Google Analytics. We use the information we get from Google Analytics only to improve this site. We do not combine the information collected through the use of Google Analytics with personally identifiable information. Please refer to Google’s Privacy Policy for more information. You may also choose to download the Google Analytics opt-out browser add-on.

You may wish to restrict the use of cookies. Please be aware that some of the features of our website may not function correctly if you disable cookies.

Most modern browsers allow you to change your cookie settings. You can usually find these settings in the options or preferences menu of your browser. To understand these settings, the following links for commonly used browsers may be helpful:

Personalized Advertising. We may also use targeted advertising cookies, such as Google Ads, to deliver tailored advertising on our Sites and other websites that you may visit. You can learn more about how to control advertising cookies by visiting the Network Advertising Initiative’s Consumer Opt-Out link, the DAA’s Consumer Opt-Out link for browsers, or the DAA’s opt-out link for mobile devices. Please note that electing to opt-out will not stop advertising from appearing in your browser or applications and may make the ads you see less relevant to your interests.

Additional Disclosures for Certain U.S. State Residents

We have listed the privacy rights for certain U.S. state jurisdictions below, but we understand you may have additional rights in your jurisdiction. You may contact us directly at any time about exercising your data protection rights. We will consider your request in accordance with applicable laws.

Certain state laws require that we detail the categories of personal information that we disclose for certain “business purposes,” such as to service providers that assist us with securing our services or marketing our products.

We disclose the following categories of personal information for our business purposes:

  • Identifiers;
  • Personal information under California Civil Code section 1798.80;
  • Commercial information;
  • Internet activity information;
  • Audio, visual, or similar information;
  • Professional or employment-related information; and,
  • Inferences drawn from any of the above information categories.

Sensitive Categories of Personal Data:

  • Account log-in data; and,
  • Geolocation data.

Several jurisdictions grant state residents certain rights, including the right to access specific types of personal information, the right to correct inaccurate personal information, the right to learn how we process personal information, the right to know whether and how we disclose or sell personal information, the right to opt out of any sale of personal information, the right to request deletion of personal information in certain circumstances, the right to limit our use of your sensitive personal information, and the right not to be denied goods or services for exercising these rights.

To make such a request, please submit your request via https://www.scfuels.com/submit-request/ or call us at 714 516-7376.

Do Not Sell or Share My Personal Information. Residents of certain U.S. states have the right to opt out of the sale of the consumer’s personal information. In the preceding twelve months we have not sold personal information for monetary consideration, but we recognize that some state privacy laws define “personal information” in such a way that some sharing of personal information necessary to provide you with personalized ads may be considered a “sale,” even if no money is exchanged. You can opt out of our use of advertising cookies through our cookie banner.

Limit the Use of My Sensitive Personal Information. We do not use or disclose sensitive personal information for any purpose other than providing our goods and services to you, or as otherwise permitted under applicable law.

Third Party Marketing. California Civil Code Section 1798.83 permits you to request information regarding the disclosure of your personal information to third parties for the third parties’ direct marketing purposes. We do not sell your information to third parties for the third parties’ direct marketing purposes.

  1. International Transfers of Data

Any data that you provide to us may be accessed, shared or processed by our offices, located in the United States, and service providers located in the United States, if such data transfer is necessary for the specific purpose for which you submitted your data (such as the provision of goods or services under a written contract).

This may entail a transfer of your personal information across international borders. The data protections standards may differ and be lower than the standards enforced in your jurisdiction.

  1. Children’s Privacy

Our website is not directed to or intended for, and we do not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from children under the age of 13. If you have reason to believe that a child under the age of 13 has provided personally identifiable information to us through this website, please contact us, and we will endeavor to delete that information from our databases.

  1. Change of Control

Personal information may be transferred to a third party as a result of a sale, acquisition, merger, reorganization or other change in control. If we sell, merge or transfer any part of the business, part of the sale may include your personal information.

  1. Security and Data Retention

SC Fuels implements a variety of security measures to maintain the safety of your personal information when you enter, submit, or access your personal information. For example, when possible, we use encryption to transfer and store data. We further limit access to this data using access controls and confidentiality commitments.

However, no website, application, or transmission can guarantee security. Thus, while we have established and maintain what we believe to be reasonable procedures to protect the confidentiality, security, and integrity of personal information obtained through the Sites, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us.

We retain information from or about you for so long as necessary to fulfill the purposes outlined in this Privacy Policy. When the information is no longer necessary for these purposes, we delete it or keep it in a form that does not identify you, unless we are required by law to keep this information for a longer period. When determining the retention period, we take into account various criteria, such as the type of products and services requested by or provided to you, the nature and length of our relationship with you, possible re-enrollment with our products or services, the impact on the services we provide to you if we delete some information from or about you, mandatory retention periods provided by law and the statute of limitations.

  1. Policy Changes

SC Fuels will occasionally update this privacy policy to reflect company and customer feedback and/or based on our need to accurately reflect our data collection and disclosure practices. SC Fuels encourages you to periodically review this policy to be informed of how SC Fuels is protecting your information. All changes to this privacy policy are effective immediately.
