At PRECO, your privacy and account information is very important to us.

Our Commitment to Privacy

At Peace River Electric Cooperative (PRECO), confidentiality is very important to us. As we strive to improve and expand our services, we recognize our members’ need and desire to preserve their privacy and confidentiality. PRECO recognizes the trust members place in us and is committed to safeguarding member information. The following policy affirms our continued commitment to preserving member confidentiality.

The Information We Collect

We receive and retain information about our members through many sources:

  • Information we receive on member applications or other forms;
  • Information on usage and data gathered by our metering systems;
  • Information through member transactions with us, our affiliates or others; and,
  • Information we receive from consumer-reporting agencies.
The Way We Use Information

We limit the use and collection of nonpublic personal information to that which is necessary to maintain and administer financial services. We do not share this information with outside parties unless:

  • The information is provided to help complete a member-initiated transaction (such as credit reporting agencies, document processing companies, etc.);
  • The member has requested it;
  • The disclosure is required by law (e.g., subpoena, investigation of fraudulent activity, etc.); or,
  • The disclosure is required by banking regulation (e.g., Fair Lending Reporting Act, Home Mortgage Disclosure Act, etc.).
  • When member information is provided to any of the third parties mentioned above, that third party must agree to adhere to privacy principles that provide for keeping such information confidential.
Limiting Employee Access To Information

PRECO limits employee access to member information to those with a business reason for knowing such information. All of our employees are educated on the importance of confidentiality and member privacy. Any employee that violates the financial privacy of our members will be subject to appropriate disciplinary measures and possible termination.

Protection of Information via Established Security Procedures

To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy and ensure the correct use of information, we have put in place appropriate physical, electronic and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information.

Maintaining Accurate Information

We have established procedures so that our members’ financial information is accurate, current and complete in accordance with reasonable commercial standards. PRECO will respond to requests to correct inaccurate information in a timely manner.


At PRECO, we value our member relationships. We want you to understand how we use the information you provide and our commitment to ensuring your personal privacy. If you have questions regarding our privacy policy, please contact us at 1-800-282-3824.
