About this Privacy Statement

The Iowa Association of Electric Cooperatives has created this Privacy Statement in order to demonstrate our firm commitment to privacy. The following discloses the information gathering and dissemination practices for this Web site: http://www.livingwithenergyiniowa.com.

Kinds of Information We Collect from Our Visitors

The personally identifiable information we collect is used to facilitate entry into our Editor's Choice contests. In the process of providing entry for these contests, we require our visitors to provide certain personally identifiable information. If a visitor sends us personal correspondence, such as e-mails or letters, we may collect such information into a file specific to you.

How We Use the Information We Collect

We internally use personally identifiable information about our visitors to improve our marketing and promotional efforts, to statistically analyze site usage, to improve our content and informational offerings and to customize our Web site's content and layout. We believe these uses allow us to improve our Web site and provide better service to our visitors. We may occasionally use a visitor's e-mail address and — in rare situations — mailing address or phone number to contact a customer regarding contest entries, administrative matters or notices. We may use information in the file we maintain about a visitor to resolve disputes and troubleshoot problems.

Disclosure of Your Information

We respect the privacy of our visitors and, therefore, we will not sell or otherwise intentionally release any of our visitors' personal information to any third party. We will, however, cooperate with all law enforcement inquiries. We will disclose any information about you to law enforcement or other government officials when required to do so in order to comply with a court order or to cooperate with law enforcement officials in the conduct of a criminal investigation.
