We collect information that identifies, describes, or is reasonably capable of being associated with you (“personal information”).

If you choose to receive marketing communications from us, we may use personal information about you to keep you up to date with our latest Services, surveys, announcements, upcoming events, sweepstakes, contests and other promotions via our newsletters, emails, or other communications.

For example, if you contact us in relation to your employment prospects, we will use personal information about you to consider you for current and future employment opportunities and to contact you with respect to employment opportunities at Origis Energy, although we will not use any protected class information in relation to employment decisions.
To support employment consideration we may collect and process:
For example, if you are an employee or contractor of Origis Energy we must collect and maintain certain information from you to administer the employment or contractor relationship.
Internet or other electronic network activity information. Such as browsing history, search history, information on your interaction with a website, application, or advertisement.
Geolocation Data. Such as physical location or movements. We collect your IP address and infer a location such as city or postcode therefrom.
Inferences drawn from other personal information.
We may link together different types of information or link information to personal information. If linked information directly or indirectly identifies an individual person, we treat the linked information as personal information. In this Notice, to “process” personal information means to perform any operation on personal information, whether or not by automated means, such as collection, recording, organizing, storing, adapting, use, disclosure, combining, erasing or destroying. Where we need to collect personal information by law, or under the terms of the contract between us and you do not provide that data when requested, we may not be able to perform the contract we have or are trying to enter into with you (for example, to provide you with Services). In this case, we may have to cancel a Service you have with us, but we will notify you if this is the case.
We will only use personal information about you for the purposes for which we collected it, unless we reasonably consider that we need to use it for another reason and that reason is compatible with the original purpose. If you wish to get an explanation as to how the processing for the new purpose is compatible with the original purpose, please contact us.
If we need to use personal information about you for an unrelated purpose, we will notify you and we will explain the business purpose which allows us to do so.
Please note that we may process personal information about you without your knowledge or consent, in compliance with the above rules, where this is required or permitted by law.
During the past 12 months, we may have disclosed the categories of personal information listed in the section marked “What categories of personal information does Origis Energy collect about me?” to the following categories of recipients:
Origis Energy may aggregate information collected though the Services and remove identifiers so that the information no longer identifies or can be used to identify an individual (“Anonymized Information”). Origis Energy shares Anonymized Information with third parties and does not limit third parties’ use of the Anonymized Information because it is no longer personal information.
We may collect or obtain information about you from marketing partners, social media platforms, data aggregators, location intelligence platforms, third party providers of business contact information, publicly available databases, and similar sources, for advertising and analytics purposes, so that we may offer you personalized features and offers tailored to your interests, and in order to offer you an overall better service. We will use this information where you have provided your consent to the third party or to Origis Energy, or where Origis Energy has a legitimate interest in using information about you in order to provide you with the content or service requested. We will combine this information with personal information provided by you, in order to identify prospective customers or Services you’ll be interested in, to create more tailored advertising, and to improve the accuracy of our records.
We retain personal information in identifiable form only for as long as necessary to fulfill the purposes for which the personal information was provided to Origis Energy or, if longer, to comply with legal obligations, to resolve disputes, to enforce agreements and similar essential purposes. To determine the appropriate retention period for personal information, we consider the amount, nature, and sensitivity of the personal information, the potential risk of harm from unauthorized use or disclosure of personal information, the purposes for which we process personal information and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal requirements.
We are required to satisfy one or more of the reasons set out by applicable data privacy law before we can collect and use personal information about you.
Generally, our business purpose for collecting and using the personal information described above will depend on the personal information concerned and the specific context in which we collect it. However, we will normally rely on the following reasons to collect and use personal information about you:
Using information about you may be necessary for us to perform our obligations under a contract with you or with a view to entering into such a contract. For example, where you have: (i) purchased Services and/or leased land to us, we will need to use information about you to provide those Services and/or administer the lease; or (ii) approached us in relation to employment opportunities, the collection and use of personal information about you is necessary to enable us to offer you the job role, process your acceptance of the offer, on-board you as an employee and fulfil our obligations as an employer.
The collection and use of personal information about you may be necessary to enable us to meet our legal obligations. For example, to verify your identity and undertake necessary due diligence checks. For example, we may collect W9 and Social Security Number from landowners and individual contractors conducting work for us.
Where such processing is not overridden by your interests or fundamental rights, we are permitted to use personal information about you where it is necessary in order to pursue our legitimate interests, for example to operate the website and our other digital offerings, to improve our Services, content and our other digital offerings or to undertake marketing. We may have other legitimate interests and if appropriate we will make this clear to you at the relevant time.
In some limited circumstances, we may rely on your consent to collect and use personal information about you. For example, we may rely on consent: (i) where you have approached us in relation to employment opportunities and have provided us with sensitive personal information, such as information in relation to your racial and ethnic origin, sexual orientation, religion, physical and mental health, disabilities or trade union membership; (ii) in relation to the sending of e-marketing or communications; or (iii) where you are a landowner and provide personal information in connection with your W9.
If we rely on consent, this will be made clear to you at the time we request information about you. You can withdraw your consent at any point by using the mechanism provided at the time, or by contacting us using the contact details provided in the section “How do I contact Origis Energy?” of this Notice.
In some instances, we may need to use personal information about you to protect your vital interests or those of another person.
You may not always be required to provide the personal information that we have requested. However, if you choose not to provide certain information, you may not be able to take advantage of some of our Services. Any information that is so required is clearly marked as mandatory. If you would prefer that we not collect certain personal information from you, please do not provide us with any such information, or opt out of providing this information where applicable.
If we collect and use personal information about you in reliance on our legitimate interests (or those of any third party), these interests will normally be as set out in this Notice; however, if this changes we will make clear to you at the relevant time what those legitimate interests are.
If you have any questions or need further information concerning the business purpose on which we collect and use personal information about you, please contact us using the contact details provided in the section below marked “How Do I Contact Origis Energy?”
State consumer privacy laws may provide their residents with additional rights regarding our use of personal information. The following Section applies to individuals who reside in specific jurisdictions that provide additional privacy rights, including California, Colorado, Connecticut, and Virginia.
Right to Access Specific Information and Data Portability Right. You have the right to request that we disclose certain information to you about our collection and use of personal information over the past twelve (12) months. Once we receive and confirm your verifiable consumer request, we will disclose to you:
Right to Correct Information. You have the right to request we update personal information about you that is incorrect in our systems.
Right to Delete. You have the right to request that we delete any personal information about you that we collected from you and retained, subject to certain exceptions. Once we receive and confirm your verifiable consumer request, we will delete (and direct our Service providers to delete) the personal information from our records, unless an exception applies.
Right to Opt-out of the sale or sharing of Personal Information for Cross-Contextual Behavioral Advertising. Origis Energy does not sell or share Personal Information for cross-contextual behavioral advertising purposes.
Right to Limit Sensitive personal information Use. You have the right to limit the use of sensitive personal information regarding you.
Non-Discrimination. We will not discriminate against you for exercising any of your rights.
To submit a request to exercise these rights you may use one of these three methods:
For all requests, please clearly state that the request is related to “Your Privacy Rights,” indicate which type of request you are making, and provide your name, street address, city, state, zip code and an e-mail address or phone number where we may contact you. We are not responsible for notices that are not labeled or sent properly or that do not include complete information.
To appeal a decision regarding a consumer rights request, please submit your appeal using one of the three methods above. Your appeal should include an explanation of the reason you disagree with our decision. Within 60 days of receipt of an appeal, we will inform you in writing of any action taken or not taken in response to the appeal, including a written explanation of the reasons for the decisions.
Only you, or a person registered with the applicable Secretary of State that you authorize to act on your behalf, may make a verifiable consumer request related to personal information about you. You may also make a verifiable consumer request on behalf of your minor child.
You may only make such a request for access or data portability twice within a 12-month period. The verifiable consumer request must provide sufficient information that allows us to reasonably verify you are the person about whom we collected personal information or an authorized representative, and describe your request with sufficient detail that allows us to properly understand, evaluate and respond to it.
We cannot respond to your request or provide you with personal information if we cannot verify your identity or authority to make the request and confirm the personal information relates to you. Making a verifiable consumer request does not require you to create an account with us. We will only use personal information provided in a verifiable consumer request to verify the requestor’s identity or authority to make the request.
We endeavor to respond to a verifiable consumer request within forty-five (45) days of its receipt. If we require more time (up to 90 days), we will inform you of the reason and extension period in writing. We will deliver our written response electronically. Any disclosures we provide will only cover the 12-month period preceding the receipt of the verifiable consumer request. The response we provide will also explain the reasons we cannot comply with a request, if applicable. For data portability requests, we will select a format to provide the personal information that is readily usable and should allow you to transmit the information from one entity to another entity without hindrance.
We do not charge a fee to process or respond to your verifiable consumer request unless it is excessive, repetitive, or manifestly unfounded. If we determine that the request warrants a fee, we will tell you why we made that decision and provide you with a cost estimate before completing your request.
