You reserve the right of offering your confidential data to the website, and please do not submit your confidential data if you do not want it being collected. Our web servers collect the domain names of visitors. Similar to many websites, our web servers also seek to place a “cookie” (a small data file) on your computer’s hard drive which allows the server to determine the computer when it visits again, in order to track statistical information about navigation to and throughout certain areas of this website. This is used to help improve this website navigation and to measure the effectiveness of the overall website experience. It is not shared with anyone other than Yingli affiliates and contractors who assists Yingli in these efforts and are bound to confidentiality. However, if you prefer not to accept cookies, you can set your browser to reject them or to alert you before one is placed.

Domain name information that the website collects is not used to identify you personally and instead is aggregated to measure the number of visits, average time spent on the website, pages viewed, etc. This information is used to measure the use of the website and to improve the content of the website.

Accordingly, these third parties may then (i) contact you via direct mail, email, and/or telephone regarding your request, and/or (ii) disclose your personal information to other third parties for their own purposes. Because of your affirmative request for more information when you submit the quote request form, these third parties may contact you even if your number is currently listed on any state, federal or corporate “Do Not Call” list, and you are not required to give your consent as a condition of any purchase. Please note that any third parties to whom we may disclose personal information may have their own privacy policies which describe how they use and disclose personal information. Those policies will govern use, handling and disclosure of your personal information once we have shared it with those third parties.
