Information Gathered By Pinnacle West
You may also be asked to provide personally identifiable information on the Pinnacle West website, which may include your name, address, telephone number, and e-mail address. In addition, if a purchase is made, we collect credit card information, billing and shipping address, other customer information, information regarding prior purchases, and information concerning the dollar amount of the purchase, the date of the purchase, and the specific items purchased. This information is collectively referred to as “personally identifiable information.” This information can be gathered when feedback or e-mails are sent to Pinnacle West, when you register for services, when you voluntarily post information on our website, when you make purchases via the website, or when you enter information in the checkout process but do not complete your checkout. In all such cases you have the option of providing us with personally identifiable information. You may always choose not to provide us with your personally identifiable information, but you then may not be able to participate in the particular activity that requires such information. If you do provide us with your personally identifiable information, you agree that we may contact you to provide you with information we believe may be of interest to you.
You always have the option to opt-out of our non-transactional emails via a link in the footer of all non-transactional email messages.
Some communications (e.g. important account notifications and billing information) are considered transactional and are necessary for all Pinnacle West customers.
