Information Collection
Newnan Utilities offers as a service to our customers the availability to view and pay their utility statement via a link on this website which will be directed to a SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) protected page to process or view a customer’s bill. Customer statements are stored and maintained by a third party vendor on a server, which is protected by a SSL certificate, firewall and appropriate virus protection software. If the customer decides to pay their utility statement electronically by Internet or authorize an automatic draft, they will be directed to the site of a third party vendor, which will be protected with an SSL certificate and other pertinent security software with equal or greater security protection than that of Newnan Utilities for the credit card payment transaction and return to Newnan Utilities website once the payment has been processed. Newnan Utilities will not store or process any credit card information other than the receipt or statement information of the payment, from the credit card processor, of the transaction. Our primary goal is not to collect any further personal information other than what is needed to handle processing of the customers online statement payment.

Newnan Utilities cooperates with inter-governmental agencies and law enforcement inquiries and other third parties to enforce laws, intellectual property and other rights. Local and international law enforcement agents can request and may receive your personally identifiable information. We also reserve the right to disclose the website visitor’s personal information when Newnan Utilities has determined that property of Newnan Utilities or personal safety of its employees or customers may be at risk.
