Farmers Electric Cooperative, Inc. considers your online privacy very important. We are committed to protecting the privacy of all those who provide us with their contact information while using our information, products, or services. This policy describes the ways that personally identifiable and anonymous information about our online users is collected, how that information might be shared, and how someone can request changes to the way their personal information is used or shared.

This privacy statement applies to websites operated by or on behalf of
Farmers Electric Cooperative, Inc. and its subsidiaries, affiliates, divisions, and related companies ("Farmers").

Information You Volunteer
Personally identifiable information is information that can identify you, such as your full name, email address, postal address, telephone number, and fax number.

We collect personally identifiable information that you choose to provide to us when you sign up for services; enter a contest; participate in surveys; register for a web site; or otherwise communicate with us. When you provide this information to us, you are no longer anonymous.

We also may receive information about you from other sources and add it to the information you have provided to us.

Farmers is not responsible for the information you volunteer about yourself in publicly accessible interactions, or the information that you choose to make public.

All promotional and research email messages you receive from us will include an option to opt out of future email communications.

We may also send you e-newsletters with targeted, relevant content. Each e-newsletter will provide you with an opportunity to opt out of that particular e-newsletter.

We do not provide contact lists to third-party companies.

How We Keep Your Information Secure
We use reasonable precautions, including appropriate technical, administrative, and physical procedures, to protect personal information from loss, misuse, or alteration.
