The types of personal information we collect include name, service location, contact information, identification information, utility use details, credit information and special needs information. We may record calls to our customer service representatives for purposes of accuracy, performance reviews and training.

For water use, the information is used to bill on behalf of the Town of Newmarket. NT Power may use aggregate or anonymous information that will not be linked to identified individuals for various other uses for itself and third parties.
Who We Share This Information With
NT Power does not share personal information with any third parties except as disclosed in this policy. NT Power may provide personal information to NT Power’s consultants, subcontractors and professional advisers (which shall be bound by privacy obligations) to assist NT Power’s uses disclosed herein. NT Power will also provide personal information to other parties involved in the electrical generation, transmission and distribution industry and to regulators to the extent required to service customers or as required by law. If we disconnect service to a customer who is a tenant, we may advise the customer’s landlord or to a customer who is a landlord we may advise the customer’s tenant that the disconnection has or is about to occur. MFFIPA imposes certain privacy obligations on NT Power, but also obligates NT Power to release certain information requested though freedom of information requests.
