Privacy Policy

This privacy policy describes the fair information practices that govern the collection, maintenance, use, and disclosure of personal information on the Sumter EMC web site. This privacy policy does not apply to any other information collected by Sumter EMC through any other means. 

COLLECTION PRACTICES

Like most other web sites, Sumter Electric Membership Corporation (“Sumter EMC” or “We”) maintains web logs that automatically record basic, non-personal information about visitors. This information consists of: IP address, type of browser and operating system, date and time of access, pages visited, and referring/exit pages. Sumter EMC normally only uses web log information in aggregate form to enable us to make the web site more useful. Web logs may be used to identify visitors who seek to damage the web site, use the web site in unauthorized ways, or interfere with operations. Information about users who try to engage in any unapproved activities may be shared with law enforcement agencies. Sumter EMC does not collect any personal information about a routine visitor unless that visitor provides it to us.

 E-MAIL AND WEB FORMS

If you use the Sumter EMC web site to send an e-mail to request information, or if you provide personal information through this web site in any other way, Sumter EMC collects and may maintain the information that you provide. Your information may be shared among Sumter EMC staff and others as necessary to respond to your request. Routine e-mail sent to Sumter EMC through the Sumter EMC web site or otherwise is not necessarily secure against interception. 

USES AND DISCLOSURES

Sumter EMC uses its web site to provide services and information to its members, their employees, and members of the public. Personal information collected through the Sumter EMC web site may be used from time to time by others hired by us or otherwise engaged to assist in carrying out financial, management, operational or other activities. We could be required to disclose this information in response to valid legal process, such as a search warrant, subpoena, or court order. We do not sell, rent, or otherwise share information about users of this site.

LINKS TO OTHER SITES

This web site contains links to other sites, some of which are not owned or controlled by Sumter EMC. Please be aware that we are not responsible for the privacy practices of such other sites. This privacy policy applies solely to information collected on this web site.  Upon leaving the Sumter EMC web site, the privacy policy of the new site will apply.

CHANGES IN THIS PRIVACY POLICY

We reserve the right to modify this privacy policy at any time, so please review it periodically. If changes are made to this privacy policy, the privacy policy as it appears on the Sumter EMC web site will be updated to reflect the changes.
