How We Protect Your Privacy
Personally identifiable information that you voluntarily submit ("customer information") is used solely for Sussex Rural Electric Cooperative's purposes. We do not sell or otherwise share customer lists, and will not disclose your customer information to third parties that may want to market products or services to you. We may, however, need to share specific information with third-party business partners or contractors when that information is required in order to answer your inquiry, to fulfill your request for a product or service, or to otherwise conduct our business with you, including the collection of payment from you.
In addition, though we make every effort to preserve user privacy, we may need to disclose personal information when required by law or to comply with a judicial proceeding, a subpoena, a court order, or other legal process.
Sussex Rural Electric Cooperative has implemented policy guidelines and security features to control access specific-customer account information and to help safeguard customer-specific account information from unauthorized access or improper use.
