If you elect to provide California-Solar.org with personally identifiable information, we may utilize such information for marketing purposes, and this use may result in follow-up communications from California-Solar.org and from our clients. In addition, that information may be combined with information collected from other sources to assist with targeting ads to your preferences and behaviors, and for other California-Solar.org sales and marketing efforts.
