Website

The NV Energy website is designed to facilitate the providing and sharing of information. We do this to enhance communications, make informed decisions, and offer Internet-specific services for our customer and shareholders. To do this, it is often required to ask of our users to provide information that may be considered "private" in nature.

NV Energy complies with industry standards for protecting the privacy and personal information of the users of our website. NV Energy internally reviews our compliance with these standards on a periodic basis.

NV Energy may, at times, provide aggregate data to our partners and clients to better serve our customers. In all cases, the provision of such data is in compliance with the rules, regulations and laws of the Public Utilities Commission, federal, state and local government. NV Energy never provides our clients with information that could be used to identify you personally, without first obtaining your express consent. Any data that we may use is always presented in a format that retains the personal privacy of our users.

At times, NV Energy asks for your email and other contact information in order to provide you with information and/or fulfillment that you request, notification of news, promotions, events, financial, investor, economic, and regulatory information.

At all times, you may request to be removed from such distribution by contacting us directly. Your personal contact information is not shared with any outside company or person unless it is specifically stated as part of that request process.

We train all employees in the aspects of maintaining privacy. Further, we ensure that the tools necessary for maintaining such privacy are available.
