How We Collect Information

In the past twelve (12) months, we have collected the above categories of personal information from the following categories of sources: directly from consumers or their agents; indirectly from consumers or their agents; directly and indirectly from consumers' activities on our websites and mobile applications; internet service providers and social media networks; data analytics providers; joint marketing partners who perform activities at the direction of Dominion Energy; affiliates and vendors that interact with us in connection with the goods we offer and the services we perform; and government agencies from which public records are obtained.

How We Use Personal Information

Dominion Energy collects, uses, and discloses and/or sells personal information for the following business or commercial purposes: servicing your account; communicating with you; operating our business; performing marketing activities; enabling third parties such as vendors to provide products or services on our behalf; fulfilling legal duties; and as described to you when we collect your personal information or as otherwise set forth in any applicable laws or regulations.

Sharing and Sale of Personal Information

As described in our Privacy Notice, Dominion Energy shares personal information for legitimate business purposes. Dominion Energy is not a data broker and does not share personal information with data brokers, which are businesses that knowingly collect and sell to third parties the personal information of an individual with whom the business does not have a direct relationship. Dominion Energy does not sell personal information as the term is traditionally understood (i.e., we do not exchange personal information directly for monetary consideration.)

However, certain activities such as allowing third-party cookies on our websites and mobile applications, sharing information for purposes of internet-based advertising, and/or maintaining certain relationships through which we work to bring you non-affiliate products may be considered a "sale" under the CCPA. To opt-out of the sale of your personal information, please click here: Do Not Sell My Info.

In the preceding twelve (12) months, we have disclosed and/or sold (under the definitions in the CCPA) the following categories of personal information: personal identifiers, personal information records pursuant to California law, characteristics of protected classes, commercial information, biometric information, internet or other similar network activity, geolocation data, sensory data, professional or employment-related information, non-public education information, and inferences drawn from other personal information.

Dominion Energy does not knowingly sell the personal information of consumers under the age of 16.

In order to process your request, we must verify your identity as described in the "Exercising Your Right to Know" and "Right to Delete" section below.

Right to Delete

You have the right to request that we delete any of your personal information we have collected or maintained, subject to certain exceptions. Such exceptions include, but are not limited to, personal information that is necessary to complete a transaction for which we collected your personal information, to provide a good or service you requested, to take actions reasonably anticipated to be necessary to fulfill the obligations of our ongoing relationship with you, or to fulfill the obligations of a contract with you.

Once we receive and confirm your verifiable consumer request, we will delete your personal information, unless an exception applies.

Exercising Your Right to Know and Right to Delete

To exercise the rights to know or delete as described above, please submit a consumer request to us by:

We are required by law to verify your identity before processing your request. Upon receipt of your request, we will contact you with the specific steps needed to verify your identity.

  • Provide enough information so that we may verify your identity as the person about whom we collected personal information.
  • Describe your request with sufficient detail such that we may properly understand, process, and respond.

While an account with us is not necessary to submit a verifiable consumer request, if you maintain a password-protected account with us, we may verify your identity via existing authentication practices. We may require that you provide us with additional personal information, including your name, email address, phone number, billing or service address, or customer account number for the purpose of verifying your identity and processing your request.
