Cookies & Other Technologies

This policy explains our use of cookies and other technologies to improve and protect Secret Energy. Additional information is defined in our Member Agreement.

What are cookies

Cookies are small data files that are issued to your device when you visit a website and that store information about your use of a service. Pixel tags (which are also called clear GIFs, web beacons, or pixels) are snippets of code or images embedded on websites and in email that help us learn how you interact with our site and emails.

Why do we use them

Secret Energy uses cookies and other technologies to help recognize repeat visitors and to improve the quality of our Applications.

How do they work

When you visit Secret Energy, our web server sends a cookie to your device, which allows us to recognize your device (but not the specific person using it). By associating the identification numbers in the cookies with other account information when, for example, you log in to our Applications, we know that the cookie information relates to your user account. Similarly, pixel tags on Secret Energy and in email communications help us identify how your device is being used to interact with Secret Energy’s content. Some of the tags and cookies used by our Services are served by us, and some are served by trusted partners who are delivering services on our behalf.

Some examples of the types of cookies and other technologies Secret Energy uses:


Cookies also help keep Secret Energy secure by facilitating security features and allowing us to detect activity that might violate our rules and Terms of Use.

These cookies help protect your account from being accessed by anyone other than you, alert you and us when your account is accessed, and provide capabilities that allow us to disable any active sessions you have (for example, when you log out or change your password).

Site features and services

Secret Energy uses cookies that provide functionality and help us deliver our products and services — for instance, by storing your preferences or by pre-filling the username field when you log in.


Performance cookies help us route traffic between servers and understand how Secret Energy is performing, so we can provide you with the best experience possible. We may use our mobile app to collect information about activity in the app, the type of device and operating system it is running on and how the app is functioning. 

Analytics and research

We may use cookies to understand how you are discovering projects or to determine which types of browsers or devices are accessing Secret Energy. 

Can you turn off cookies

Your browser may give you the ability to control cookies. How you do so depends on the type of cookie. Certain browsers can be set to reject browser cookies. Blocking or deleting cookies may prevent you from using some of our Services. To find out more about how to enable, disable, or delete cookies from your web browser, please visit here. To control flash cookies, which may be used on certain websites from time to time, you can go here. Flash cookies cannot be controlled through your browser settings.

Do Not Track Policy

Some browsers have “do not track” features that allow you to tell a website not to track you. These features do not always function as expected. Our site does not always not respond to these signals. If you block cookies, certain features on our site may not work. If you block or reject cookies, it is not guaranteed that all of the tracking described here will stop.

Certain options you select are browser- and device-specific.
