This Privacy Statement discloses the privacy practices of the website (the “Site”).
In this Privacy Statement, “we” and “us” refer to The Covert Code. Because The Covert Code is committed to your privacy, we provide this information on our information practices:
What personally identifiable information about you is collected through the Site;
How the information is used;
With whom the information may be shared;
What choices are available to you regarding our collection, use, and distribution of the information;
The kind of security procedures that are in place to protect the loss, misuse, or alteration of information under our control; and
How you can correct any inaccuracies in the information?
Information Collection and Use
We collect information from our users at a variety of locations on our Site. We are the sole owner of the information and will not sell, share, or rent this information to others in ways different from what is disclosed in this Privacy Statement.
In order to use certain areas of the Site, you must first register as a Member or Agent. During registration, you may be required to provide contact information and other personal information (e.g., your address, phone number, and unique identifier). We use this information to contact you about the services available on the Site and to verify your identity when you use the Site.
E-Mail and Other Communications
We may communicate with you through e-mail, postal mail, courier or overnight delivery mail, telephone calls, or faxes to confirm rates, describe our services, or contact you regarding your transactions or inquiries on the Site. We collect relevant contact information for these purposes.
The website uses cookies, tracking pixels, and related technologies. Cookies are small data files that our platform serves and stores on your device. Our site uses cookies dropped by us or third parties for a variety of purposes, including operating and personalizing the website. Also, cookies may be used to track how you use the site to target ads to you on other websites.
Log Files
Your computer reaches us via an Internet Protocol, or “IP” address. This can tell us things such as what part of the world you are connecting from. We use IP addresses to analyze trends, administer the Site, track a user’s movement, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use.
Information Sharing
We may provide or sell aggregated demographic information to other companies. Aggregated information means information that is a collection of data about many users and from which no data specific to any one user can be obtained. We also work with other companies, such as those which host our site, and those companies may therefore have access to some data on our servers. That access is subject to confidentiality protections that we place in our agreements with those companies, and they cannot use the data for any purposes other than those stated in the contract.
This privacy statement only applies to data that the site collects. The Site contains links to other sites. Please be aware that we are not responsible for and do not know the privacy practices of such other sites. We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our Site and to read the privacy statements of each and every website that may collect user information.
We take steps to protect our users’ personal information. E-mail sent to and from the Site may not be secure. Users should not send confidential information via unsecured email. Communications to and from will not be encrypted.
Some information sent to and from the Site is sent in a “secured session” established with the Secure Socket Layer (“SSL”). SSL encodes information that is being sent over the Internet between your computer and ours, helping to ensure that the information remains confidential during transit. The use of SSL requires that you have an SSL-compatible browser. Currently, Netscape 2.0 or higher, Microsoft’s Internet Explorer 2.0 or higher, and the latest versions of Safari, Mozilla Firefox, & Google Chrome are all SSL-compatible. Older versions of browsers will not support SSL sessions. If you do not have a browser with SSL capabilities, you can download an SSL browser from Netscape or Microsoft websites. Our computers themselves are a segregated network through firewall technology. We use anti-viral software and restrict access to sensitive areas on our computers. Every one of our users should install, use, and keep up-to-date software that screens for viruses and other harmful files that could damage data on systems operated or used by those users.
From time to time, our Site may request information from users via surveys. Participation in these surveys is completely voluntary, and the user therefore has a choice whether or not to disclose responsive information.
Disclosure for Law Enforcement Purposes
In addition to the circumstances described above, we may disclose your information if required to do so by law, court order, subpoena, or as requested by other government or law enforcement authority, or in our good faith belief that disclosure is otherwise necessary or advisable, including, without limitation, to protect your rights and those of others with whom we do business, or when we have reason to believe that disclosing the information is necessary to identify, contact, or bring legal action against someone who may be causing interference with our rights or properties; or when anyone else could be harmed by such activities. Prior to the release of any of your information, we will give you written notice, unless doing so would violate the law or put you or another party in danger.
Review and Correction of Information
If a user desires to change personally identifiable information or no longer wishes to use our service, we will endeavor to provide a way to correct, update, or remove that user’s personal data provided to us. By emailing The Covert Code, you can start this process.
We may change or modify our privacy policies from time to time. Any such changes or modifications will be effective immediately once they are posted on the Site. This Privacy Statement was last updated on June 26, 2023. We recommend that you periodically review this page. We do this so our users are always aware of what information we collect, how we use it, and under what circumstances we disclose it. We will use the information in accordance with the Privacy Statement under which the information was collected.

What is the California Consumer Protection Act (CCPA)?

In 2018, California passed the California Consumer Protection Act (CCPA), a privacy-centric bill aimed at protecting the privacy of California consumers, effective January 1, 2020. This bill sets requirements for how businesses handle consumers’ Personally Identifiable Information (PII) and gives consumers rights to control how that data is used. Renova Energy Corp. has always taken the privacy and security of customer data seriously and has implemented steps that empower you in compliance with the CCPA.

The CCPA requires that businesses disclose the following: how information is used and if/how it may be shared with third-party services; how the business’ website responds to “Do Not Track” signals from a web browser.

Consumers also have the right to not be discriminated against for exercising their rights under the CCPA.

The CPRA recently amended the CCPA.

What is the California Privacy Act, or CPRA?

In November of 2020, California voters approved Proposition 24, the CPRA, which amended the CCPA and added new additional privacy protections that began on January 1, 2023. As of January 1, 2023, consumers have new rights in addition to those above, such as:

  • The right to correct inaccurate personal information that a business has about them; and
  • The right to limit the use and disclosure of sensitive personal information collected about them.

Businesses that are subject to the CCPA have several responsibilities, including responding to verified consumer requests to exercise these rights and giving consumers certain notices explaining their privacy practices. The CCPA applies to many businesses, including data brokers.

The CPRA amends the CCPA; it does not create a separate, new law. The CPRA refines the definition of sensitive personal information by including social security numbers, biometric data, precise geolocation, and driver’s license numbers, among others. It adds new rights, such as the right to rectification and the right to limit the use and disclosure of sensitive personal information, and allows a private right of action in the event of a data breach. While the CCPA covers service providers, the CPRA includes “contractors” who receive consumer data for business purposes. The law also defines the sharing of personal information to include cross-context behavioral advertising even when no money is exchanged.
