To protect this information, this site has security measures in place including firewalls, encryption and authenticated access to internal databases where needed. Basin Electric is the sole owner of the information collected on this site.

Surveys and Contests

From time to time, Basin Electric may request information from users via surveys or contests. Participation in these surveys or contests is completely voluntary; therefore, the user has a choice whether or not to disclose information requested. That information may include contact information and demographic information (such as zip code, age level). Contact information will be used to notify the winners and award prizes.


Basin Electric takes every precaution to protect our users' information. When users submit sensitive information via the website, your information is protected both on-line and off-line. If a registration/order form asks users to enter sensitive information, that information is encrypted and is protected with the best encryption software in the industry - SSL. While we use SSL encryption to protect sensitive information on-line, we also do everything in our power to protect user-information off-line. All of our users' information, not just the sensitive information mentioned above, is restricted in our offices. Finally, the servers that we store personally identifiable information on are kept in a secure environment, behind locked doors.

When you leave the Basin Electric site for another, you are subject to the privacy policy of the new site.
