User Privacy Policy

MDU Resources recognizes the importance of protecting the privacy of all information provided by users/visitors to this Web Site. We created the following policy guidelines to guide our relationships with our users based on a fundamental respect for your right to privacy.

Collection and Security of Personal Information
MDU Resources collects some information voluntarily offered by users of this Web Site. MDU Resources uses reasonable precautions to maintain the security of the personal information of users and to disclose such information only to third parties after permission from the user. However, no security system is perfect. Therefore, MDU Resources is not responsible if someone manages to circumvent our security measures and gains access to the database, including information pertaining to individual users, nor can we be responsible for any use, reproduction, or disclosure they may make of it.

Disclosure to Third Parties
MDU Resources may disclose specific user information (such as identity and contact information) if we believe that such disclosure is necessary or desirable to: (i) fulfill legal or regulatory requirements, (ii) protect our rights or those of others, (iii) prevent or mitigate harm or damage of any kind or nature, or (iv) address or seek redress for a violation of these User Privacy Policy or other obligations to MDU Resources or any third party.

Additionally, MDU Resources may collect, analyze, and disclose to others aggregated information (which includes users’ specific information but only as an unidentifiable part of the aggregate) gathered from overall use of the Web Site or particular features or areas of the Web Site. Among other purposes, this information allows us to analyze usage trends so that we can maintain an effective, responsive site.

Finally, if MDU Resources, or one of our lines of business, is sold, merged with, or otherwise acquired by a third party, your information may be (i) disclosed, under duty of confidentiality, to a potential purchaser or merger partner as part of the pre-closing due diligence process, or (ii) included among the transferred assets.

Contact by MDU Resources
Through the use of e-mail addresses provided at registration or otherwise, MDU Resources periodically sends out a promotional e-mail to our users about services and products offered by MDU Resources. Upon request, we will remove you and your information from our database or permit you to otherwise "opt-out" of any further e-mail or contact.

Changes to the User Agreement and Privacy Policy
MDU Resources may revise the User Agreement or Privacy Policy from time to time. Unless stated otherwise, changes will become effective immediately upon posting. MDU Resources will usually post a notice on the home page of the Web Site if we have revised the User Agreement or Privacy Policy in the past seven days; however, you should check the applicable areas of the Web Site regularly to ensure you are apprised of any new changes.

If you have any questions or concerns about the User Agreement or Privacy Policy, please feel free to email us at [email protected].
