Privacy Smart Seals

A Privacy Seal is a graphic on a website that offers an added level of assurance for those interested in authorizing trusted sources to use their energy data.  Third parties that display Privacy Smart Seals have had their privacy practices reviewed by an independent privacy expert. The third parties that have received this certification will have a badge (Privacy Seal) located under the third-party application description in My Account.

Will the Privacy Smart Seal be required for third parties whose apps access your energy data from the Green Button?

We don’t require a Privacy Smart Seal for Green Button Connect apps.  Because of the importance of protecting your energy privacy, you should always be cautious when sharing your energy usage data with third parties and only provide it to trusted sources.
