What is personal information?
For the purposes of the Connecticut Hydrogen and Electric Automobile Purchase Rebate (CHEAPR) program, personal information is information that identifies or describes you and includes, but is not limited to, your name, address, telephone number, email address, driver license number, photograph, and banking information.
How do we collect your personal information?
We collect your personal information as part of the application process through our online application system. We also gain access to your personal information through the supporting documentation submitted to CHEAPR by you or on your behalf. Depending on your application circumstances, we may require additional information from you by phone or email.
How do we protect your personal information?
CHEAPR has security measures in place to protect against loss, misuse, unauthorized access, or alteration of the information provided as part of the rebate application process. We follow practices consistent with federal guidelines to protect the information stored in our facility through a number of security measures, which include: restricting employee access to confidential or sensitive information, securing access to the area where this information is processed, storing confidential information in locked desks, filing cabinets, and storage rooms, saving electronic files in a secure network location, and password protecting confidential data files.
How do we share your information with other entities?
CHEAPR does not share your personal information with any third party that is not involved in the rebate application process. Information that does not identify you personally may be included and aggregated with other consumers’ information for statistical reporting. If your application requires direct involvement by the Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental Protection and/or Eversource, we may refer your personal information to those entities.
