How We Protect Your Information

DCC PROPANE, LLC understands the importance of protecting your Personal Information and endeavors to maintain reasonable security measures to secure data during storage and use, protect against unauthorized disclosure or access, and limit collection of personal data to that which is relevant or reasonably necessary concerning the specified purpose. Only those employees or controllers who need access to your information to perform their duties are allowed such access and are prohibited from processing personal data in violation of state or federal laws that prohibit unlawful discrimination against consumers. Any employee who violates our privacy and/or security policies may be subject to disciplinary action, including possible termination and civil and/or criminal prosecution. When we engage third parties to perform services on our behalf, we require them to observe the intent of this Privacy Policy. However, no data transmission or storage method is 100% secure, so we cannot guarantee the security of your Personal Information.

Data Disposal

DCC Propane LLC recognizes the importance of managing, retaining, and disposing of data and records appropriately and in line with legal requirements. 

While carrying out its business activities, DCC Propane LLC collects information from individuals and external organizations and generates a wide range of data and information that is recorded and retained.  These records can take many different forms and can be kept as physical paper records or in electronic form.

Retention of data and information may be necessary to:

  • Fulfil statutory or other regulatory requirements,
  • Provide evidence of events/agreements in the case of disputes,
  • Meet operational needs,
  • Provide commercial protection to the business, or

The retention policy is fundamental in ensuring that DCC Propane does not prematurely destroy documents that are required for business purposes.   Conversely, the Data Retention Policy emphasizes the importance of having the timely and secure disposal of both paper and electronic documents/records that are no longer required for business purposes.

All controllers and employees are responsible for ensuring that data used to fulfill their role is managed in line with the provisions of the DCC Record Retention Policy (DCC Record Retention Policy 2.0).
