The information collection, use, and dissemination practices of GoSunSolutions. This policy applies to GoSunSolutions’s
collection, use, storage and disclosure of information by GoSunSolutions on its (a) websites, including all its divisions,
subsidiaries and related companies (collectively, the "Websites"), (b) on various third party websites, and (c) to
GoSunSolutions’s other information collection, including the purchase of customer lists from third parties. GoSunSolutions is not
responsible for the information collection or privacy practices of third web sites or applications.
1. Collection of Information.
1.1 Survey Information.
GoSunSolutions collects information from individuals by various methods, including, but not limited to, when an individual
voluntarily completes a GoSunSolutions survey, order form, or a registration page either online or offline, or by means of
online or offline surveys, order forms, or registration pages operated by third parties (collectively, a "Survey"). (As
used herein, "online" means using the Internet, including the Websites, and related technologies, and "offline" means
by methods other than online, including in person, in the postal mail, using telephones and cell phones, and other
similar means.) In the Surveys, GoSunSolutions or a third party (a "Third Party") may ask an individual to provide various
information to GoSunSolutions, which may include his or her name, email address, street address, zip code, telephone
numbers (including cell phone numbers and carriers), birth date, gender, salary range, education and marital status,
occupation, social security number, employment information, personal and online interests, and such other information
as may be requested from time to time (together, "Survey Information"). GoSunSolutions may also collect information
concerning an individual from another source and uses that information in combination with information provided
from this web site. Completing the Surveys is completely voluntary, and individuals are under no obligation to provide
Survey Information to GoSunSolutions or Third Party, but an individual may receive incentives from GoSunSolutions or a Third
Party in exchange for providing Survey Information to GoSunSolutions.
1.2 Third Party List Information.
GoSunSolutions collects information from individuals when an individual provides information to a third party and
GoSunSolutions subsequently purchases, licenses, or otherwise acquires the information from the third party (the "Seller").
Such purchased information may include, but is not limited to, an individual's name, email address, street address, zip
code, telephone numbers (including cell phone numbers and carriers), birth date, gender, salary range, education and
marital status, occupation, industry of employment, personal and online interests, and such other information as the
individual may have provided to the Seller (together, "Third Party List Information"). When acquiring Third Party List
Information, GoSunSolutions seeks assurances from the Seller that the Seller has a right to transfer the Third Party List
Information to GoSunSolutions and that the Seller has a right to provide offers from advertisers to the individuals whose
personal information is included on the Seller's list.
1.3 Other Information.
Other occasions when GoSunSolutions obtains information from individuals include (1) when an individual is making a
claim for a prize or seeking to redeem an incentive offered by GoSunSolutions or by a third party, (2) when an individual
requests assistance through GoSunSolutions’s customer service department, and (3) when an individual voluntarily
subscribes to a GoSunSolutions service or newsletter (together, "Other Information").
1.4 Cookies, Web Beacons, and Other Info Collected Using Technology.
GoSunSolutions currently uses cookie and web beacon technology to associate certain Internet-related information about an
individual with information about the individual in our database. Additionally, GoSunSolutions may use other new and
evolving sources of information in the future (together, "Technology Information").
A cookie is a small amount of data stored on the hard drive of the individual's computer that allows GoSunSolutions to
identify the individual with his or her corresponding data that resides in GoSunSolutions’s database. You may read more
about cookies at http://cookiecentral.com. Individuals who use the Websites need to accept cookies in order to use all
of the features and functionality of the Websites.
(b) Web Beacons.
A web beacon is programming code that can be used to display an image on a web page, but can also be used to
transfer an individual's unique user identification (often in the form of a cookie) to a database and associate the
individual with previously acquired information about an individual in a database. This allows GoSunSolutions to track
certain web sites an individual visits online. Web beacons are used to determine products or services an individual may
be interested in, and to track online behavioral habits for marketing purposes. For example, GoSunSolutions might place,
with the consent of a third party website, a web beacon on the third party's website where fishing products are sold.
When Joe, an individual listed in GoSunSolutions’s database, visits the fishing website, GoSunSolutions receives notice by
means of the web beacon that Joe visited the fishing site, and GoSunSolutions would then update Joe's profile with the
information that Joe is interested in fishing. GoSunSolutions may thereafter present offers of fishing related products and
services to Joe. In addition to using web beacons on web pages, GoSunSolutions also uses web beacons in email messages
sent to individuals listed in GoSunSolutions’s database.
(c) New Technology.
The use of technology on the Internet, including cookies and web beacons, is rapidly evolving, as is GoSunSolutions’s use
of new and evolving technology. As a result, GoSunSolutions strongly encourages individuals to revisit this policy for any
updates regarding its use of technology.

obtains actual knowledge that it has collected personal information about a child under the age of 13, that information
will be immediately deleted from our database. Because it does not collect such information, GoSunSolutions has no such
information to use or to disclose to third parties. GoSunSolutions has designed this policy in order to comply with the<
Children's Online Privacy Protection Act ("COPPA").
