Personal Private Information (PPI). It can be summed up in these two points:
- ETAF never sells or gives away a visitor's
real name, email
address, or other information that can personally identify you to anyone or any agency.
- ETAF does not collect, distribute, or sell
personal information about visitors to Electricka's web site.
Disclosure of personal

identity or other individual distinguishing characteristics.
ETAF bends over backward to protect unwarranted disclosure of personal
There are four areas in which personal information is handled at this web
site. Specific practices in each area vary in each area because the privacy
issues that arise in each area are specific to the area.
The four areas are:
- Email Correspondence.
- Treatment of Groups.
Each of these areas is discussed separately, below.

email address unless a real name or address is essential for the prosecution of the business at hand.
- When a visitor sends ETAF email, such as a form containing
the visitor's name, email address, or other personal information (for

Email Center, the
form itself always gives the visitor the option not to provide the
information unless the form would be useless without it. If a name
is required, it can be an alias unless a real name is essential for the
prosecution of the business at hand.
- If a
visitor chooses not to provide information that is required on a form,
thus rendering the form useless, ETAF will discard the form when received.
- A visitor always has the option to remain anonymous

address, it is never published unless the visitor specifically

In such cases, he has the option to request that ETAF publish his name and/or contact information, or
the option to request that ETAF withhold this
information. The default is not to publish. That is, if a visitor wants
either/both these information items to be published, he must
specifically authorize ETAF to do so each time he makes a
submission. Without a visitor's specific authorization, ETAF will not
publish a visitor's personal data.
- ETAF may publish the results of an opinion poll or
preference survey that has been submitted by an individual for
publication, but never identifies the individual when doing so
unless specifically requested by the individual to do so.
- ETAF may publish statistical information extracted from
individual visitor submissions, such as the percentage results
of an opinion poll or preference survey of a group of
individuals, but never identifies the individuals who
submitted the information.
- ETAF never sends unsolicited mail. A visitor must
"opt in" to an email mailing list or request return mail if you
wish to receive email from us.
- Once a visitor "opts in" to an ETAF email routing
list, he has the option to opt out at any time.
