Protection of Personal Information
Bond has put into place security measures in an effort to protect Personal Information from loss, misuse, or alteration while it is under our control. Personal Information we collect is stored electronically. We use technical, contractual, administrative, and physical measures in an effort to protect against unauthorized access.
Account information is accessible online only through the use of a password. To protect the confidentiality of Personal Information, you must keep your password confidential and not disclose it to any other person. If other people have access to your email, they may be able to obtain access to your password and obtain Personal Information about you or change information about your user profile.
While we use reasonable measures to protect information that is stored within our database, and we restrict access to information to those employees who need access to perform their job functions, such as our customer service personnel and technical staff, we cannot guarantee the security of account information. Unauthorized entry or use, hardware or software failure, and other factors may compromise the security of account information at any time. We cannot ensure the security of the information you transmit to us, and so we urge you to take every precaution to protect your Personal Information when you are on the Internet. Change your passwords often, use a combination of letters and numbers, and make sure you use a secure browser.
By registering for any part of the Site or any services or news provided by us, you agree to receive promotional messages from Bond. If at any time you wish to stop receiving promotional information from Bond, you may opt out by doing one of the following:
- Calling our service representatives at the phone numbers provided at +1(347) 602 0908.

Personal information does not include “aggregate” information. Aggregate information is data we collect about a group or category of products, services or customers, from which individual customer identities have been removed and a specific person cannot be identified through such information. Aggregate information is also any information or data that we collect from power optimizers which are available to you via the Bond Monitoring Platform. In other words, information about how you use a service may be collected and combined with information about how others use the same service, but no Personal Information will be included in the resulting data. Likewise, information about the products or services you use, or purchase may be collected and combined with information about the products and services used or purchased by others, but no Personal Information will be included in the resulting data. Among others, aggregate data helps understand trends and customer needs so that new products and services can be considered, and so existing products and services can be tailored to customer desires.
Bond appreciates the importance of safeguarding the privacy of your Personal Information that may be provided to us. Bond does use and disclose de-identified aggregate information, for the purposes of evaluating and improving our services and tailoring our products and for commercial purposes. Bond may choose at its sole discretion to transfer, sell, provide, or share such information with third parties, including to Bond’s business partners for commercial purposes.
