The United States is not considered to provide an adequate level of protection under EU data protection law. By agreeing to the Privacy Policy, you consent to the transfer of your Personal Information for the purposes described herein.


We strive to provide you with choices regarding the Personal Information you provide to us. If you do not wish to have your contact information used by Electriq to receive promotions regarding Electriq’s and/or third party products or services, you can opt-out by: (1) checking the relevant box located on the form on which Electriq collects your data; or (2) at any other time by logging into the website or application and adjusting your user preferences in your account profile by checking or unchecking the relevant boxes.  You can also contact us in accordance with the “How to Contact Us” section below.  

If we have sent you a promotional email, you may send us a return email asking to be omitted from future email distributions. This opt-out does not apply to information provided to the Company as a result of product purchase, warranty registration, product service experience or other transactions.


You may contact us through your user account, or pursuant to the “How to Contact Us” section below, to request access to, or correct or delete any Personal Information that you have provided to us.  It may be that we cannot delete your Personal Information except by also deleting your user account.  We may not accommodate a request to change information if we reasonably believe the change would violate any law or legal requirement or cause the information to be incorrect.


California residents have a right to knowledge, access, and deletion of their Personal Information under California law.  Additionally, California residents have a right to opt out of the selling of Personal Information or sharing such information for cross-context behavioral advertising.  California residents also have a right not to be discriminated against for exercising one of their California privacy rights.  Electriq does not sell your Personal Information or share it for cross-context behavioral advertising, and does not discriminate in response to privacy rights requests.

We provide notice of our data practices in this Privacy Policy. This includes what Personal Information is collected, the source of the Personal Information, and the purposes of use, as well as whether we disclose that Personal Information and if so, the categories of third parties to whom it is disclosed.  All requests under California law may be made by contacting us pursuant to the “How to Contact Us” section below.


Electriq has implemented reasonable and appropriate measures designed to secure your Personal Information from accidental loss and from unauthorized access, use, alteration, and disclosure. However, no data transmission or storage system can be guaranteed to be 100% secure.  Although we will do our best to protect your information, we cannot guarantee the security of your information.

Additionally, the safety and security of your information also depends on you. If we have given you (or where you have chosen) a password for access to certain parts of the Digital Services, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential.  We ask you not to share your password with anyone.


To enhance our Digital Services, we use “cookies”, “web beacons” and/or other tracking technologies.  Cookies are text files placed in your computer’s browser to store your preferences. Cookies and other tracking technologies are used to understand service and Internet usage and to improve or customize our products, content and offerings. For example, cookies may be used to personalize your experience at our website (e.g., to recognize you by name when you return) or save your password in password-protected areas. We or a third party platform with whom we work may place or recognize a unique cookie on your browser to enable you to receive customized content, offers or services on our website.

These cookies do not collect Personal Information automatically, but we may tie this information to Personal Information about you that is collected from other sources or you provide to us. Most web browsers are set up to accept cookies. You may be able to set your browser to warn you before accepting certain cookies or to refuse certain cookies. However, if you disable the use of cookies in your web browser, some features of our website may be difficult to use or inoperable.


The Digital Services may contain links to third parties who partner with us. If you use those links, these third parties may collect information about you. We do not control third-party links or how these third parties collect and use your Personal Information. If you have any questions about their privacy practices, you should view their privacy policies and/or contact those third parties directly.

The Digital Services also may offer you the ability to interact with social plugins from social media sites, which may allow us and/or the social media site to receive data from or about you. In some cases, we may know that you clicked on a social plugin, such as a Twitter Follow button, or receive other information from the social media sites.  Similarly, if you have previously provided Personal Information to a third party operating a plug-in on the Digital Services, then such third party may recognize you on the Digital Services. Your choice to use social network plugins and provide your information to them is subject to each social media site’s privacy policy, which may be different from ours, so please read their policies carefully to understand your options.  As with linked sites, we have no control over the information that is collected, stored, or used by social network plugins, and are not responsible for the practices of such sites.


Protecting children’s privacy is important to us. We do not direct our products and services to, nor do we knowingly collect any Personal Information from, children under the age of sixteen. If we learn that a child under the age of sixteen has provided Personal Information to us, we will use reasonable efforts to remove such information from our files.


We may occasionally update this Privacy Policy.  We will post any changes on this page with a notice that the Privacy Policy has been updated on our website’s home page.  In the event such changes are material to how we treat Personal Information, you will be notified by email to the primary email address specified in your account and/or through a notice on our website’s home page. The date the Privacy Policy was last revised is identified at the top of the page. You are responsible for ensuring we have an up-to-date active and deliverable email address for you, and for periodically visiting our website and this Privacy Policy to check for any changes.
