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
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.
