Basically, we collect two types of information: personal data and electric use data. Personal data is your contact, billing, and payment information. Electric use data is any information gathered by our electric meters.

We also collect information that you provide to us for the purposes of participating in utility programs, such as bill payment assistance, shutoff protection, renewable energy, demand-side management, load management, or energy waste reduction.

We will not disclose your information to third parties or other inquirers without your consent. However, we may disclose your information without your consent if it’s required by law (warrants, court orders, subpoenas, etc.) or if it’s needed by co-op agents or contractors working on behalf of Cherryland. In both these scenarios, we will only disclose the necessary information needed to fulfill the purpose.

Yes, you have a right to know what information we maintain about you, except for that which is used for internal co-op business purposes only.

Sure, all you need to do is complete a written “Informed Member Consent” request. Once we receive that request, just know that Cherryland is not responsible for loss, theft, alteration, or misuse of the data by third parties or members after the information has been transferred to you or your designated third party.

We will update the privacy policy on our website and notify you in Michigan Country Lines magazine.
