Privacy Policy

Protecting the privacy of information about our customers, business partners and employees has always been an important part of how Smart Rain does business. This Privacy Policy and Disclaimer explains our policies regarding how we manage customers’ information. Please check this page periodically for updates.

This site is owned and operated by Smart Rain. Please direct any questions or comments you have concerning the site or this policy to CustomerSales@smartrain.net; or call 866-416-3805. Smart Rain’s address is: 86 South 1250 West, Centerville, UT 84014

Protection of your privacy

As described below, Smart Rain does not collect personal information from visitors to its website, except for information you intentionally provide that is necessary to do business with Smart Rain through the website. Smart Rain takes steps to secure from misappropriation the information that you do provide, and carefully controls data gathering so that information collected to assist in improving customer experience on the website is not identified with individual users.

Information protection

Smart Rain strives to use industry-standard practices to protect personal information from loss, misuse, alteration and destruction. These practices include a combination of technical, operational and managerial controls. Security mechanisms in place include, but are not limited to, firewalls, network monitoring and encryption to protect certain sensitive transmissions of information.

Smart Rain also uses measures to enhance the security of its assets, such as analyzing account activity for fraudulent or otherwise suspicious behavior. Smart Rain does not provide credit or customer asset monitoring services.

No security system is fail-safe, and Smart Rain cannot guarantee information will never be obtained by unauthorized persons. Customers, business partners and employees should protect the confidentiality of information such as an account number, Social Security number, email address and password. Furthermore, customers, business partners and employees should be aware of “phishing” attempts to steal personal information. Smart Rain will not at any time initiate a request for your account password, Social Security number or bank information via email.

Information we collect

Smart Rain only collects the necessary information it requires to conduct business. The information collected will depend on the business relationship with Smart Rain. Examples of information collected include:

  • Name
  • Mailing or service address
  • Social Security number or Tax ID
  • Usage data gathered from the meter
  • Payment information
  • Telephone number

At any time, you may opt out of providing such information. However, by doing so, we may not be able to provide you the services or options which you have requested. Unless you have cookies “turned off” on your computer, when you visit Smartrain.net, your computer creates a cookie that is stored in its temporary memory. These cookies are not retained after you close your browser and this information does not identify you personally. Our servers are able to collect data from temporary cookies that tell us certain information about your visit during that session. Examples of information collected include:

  • the date and time you access our site;
  • the pages you visit;
  • the type of browser and operating system used to access our site;
  • the address of the referring website, if you arrived at Smart Rain’s site from another website; and
  • the Internet domain (.com, .edu, .gov, etc.) and IP address from which you access our site (an IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer whenever you are on the Internet).

This information is collected so we can compile and analyze usage data to help us make Smartrain.net more useful to visitors. Because we do not collect personally identifiable information (PII) about your online activities over time, “do not track” signals transmitted from web browsers do not apply to the site, and we do not alter any of our data collection and use practices upon receipt of such a signal.

We also use cookies on some online forms, such as the Customer Login page for residential electric customers. These cookies allow information in those form fields to be retained on your computer for your convenience so the fields remain populated, saving you from having to retype the information the next time you return to those pages.
