Personal Information Collection and Use - Because the Cooperative Action Network is designed to help you take action on important issues you and your community are facing, you may be asked to provide personal information when you send NRECA an e-mail, elect to receive alerts, enroll in an advocacy campaign, or use our webpage to contact an elected official.
Personally identifiable information refers to data that tells us specifically who you are (e.g. your name, address, phone number, social security number, credit card number, e-mail, etc.). In the situations described above, your personally identifiable information will be retained by NRECA and may be included in our contact databases. NRECA may use your personally identifiable information provided through this webpage to authenticate your information as well as help maintain accurate and up-to-date information of you in our membership databases or to use your information to contact you regarding an important policy issue. NRECA may choose to share your information with local electric power supply or distribution service providers ("Local Systems") or a statewide association of rural electric systems to which your Local System belongs in order to keep you informed of local, state and federal political issues that could have an impact on you or your community.
In no event will NRECA sell, rent or lease your personally identifiable information to any third parties.
