Federal law protects your privacy rights as a customer of JEA. These rights are in addition to the existing safeguards that JEA already has in place to ensure one’s privacy rights. The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) requires JEA to notify all subscribers of their rights to restrict the use of their Customer Proprietary Network Information (CPNI). You have the right, and JEA has a duty, under federal law, to protect the confidentiality of your CPNI. What is CPNI? Customer Proprietary Network Information (CPNI) is personally identifiable information that a telecommunications carrier collects when providing telephone service to a subscriber. CPNI typically consists of telephone numbers called by the subscriber along with the associated call duration and timing of those calls as well as call frequency and any call management services utilized by the customer.

Why should I care about the use of my CPNI? Congress has recently enacted federal legislation making a practice known as “pretexting” a crime. This practice involves a party, acting under the false “pretext” of being a customer, contacting a telephone company or accessing on-line accounts and obtaining CPNI, often times with the intent to sell it to others. Federal CPNI protection rules have existed since 1996 but because of the development of “pretexting” and other unethical practices for misuse of CPNI new rules are now in place for your protection.

Permitted Use of CPNI By JEA Without Your Permission - CPNI can be used by JEA for certain purposes without your permission. JEA may use CPNI to offer you new or enhanced services that are related to the category of services to which you currently subscribe. JEA may also use CPNI to respond to your inquiry regarding services you currently use or related services JEA offers. In addition, JEA may use CPNI in connection with repair and maintenance services, billing and collection, and to protect company property and to prevent fraud.

Prohibited Use of CPNI Unless Authorized By You - Unless you specifically authorize its use, JEA may not use CPNI to market services unrelated to the services to which you currently subscribe. For example, JEA may not use CPNI to offer you any type of long distance service unless you currently subscribe to their long distance offerings. JEA may not share CPNI with any other company, including our affiliate companies unless you are a customer of our affiliate.

Additional Information Regarding Your CPNI Rights - You have the right to deny or withdraw access to CPNI at any time or to instruct JEA to disclose CPNI to unaffiliated third parties upon submission of a written request. Any approval or denial for the use of CPNI outside of the service to which you subscribe to from the company is valid until you affirmatively revoke or limit such approval or denial. A denial of your approval will not affect the provision of any services to which you subscribe.

The applicant making application for telephone service, gives permission for the use of CPNI by JEA for those uses specifically permitted with my consent. I understand I may limit or revoke this authorization at any time upon proper written notice to JEA.

I understand that an installation fee of $100.00 will be waived only if the service is retained active in my name for a minimum period of twelve (12) months continuous service. Early termination prior to the twelve (12) month period will result in the fees being applied to my final telecommunications bill.

I understand that a battery backup will be installed by JEA in the equipment box which terminates JEA’s fiber network, generally located on the outside of the home or business. This Battery Backup enables your JEA telephone service for E911 calls to function during a power outage for approximately 8 hours. The backup battery should give you 6 hours of talk time. In the event of an outage, limit unnecessary phone calls to preserve battery life. As part of your service, we maintain your backup battery on your behalf, and will replace any nonfunctioning battery at no cost to you. A 24-hour battery backup is available for an additional cost. If you would like the 24-hour battery backup at an additional cost, please add this as a note in the Comment section of the web form application.

Applicant, making application for propane services, do affirm that I either own or rent the property located at the requested Service Address. I agree to become a ProGas customer and buy my propane through Jackson Energy Authority (JEA).

I further agree to allow JEA access to any facilities at this location that are owned, furnished or operated by JEA, including tanks, lines, meters, regulators or any equipment that would be necessary to provide propane for my use. I further authorize JEA to remove the equipment should I discontinue the use of its products or services with a 30-day written notice at any time after the initial 12-month service period. I understand that it is my responsibility to contact my current provider for the removal of any equipment that it may own. This Agreement continues in effect for a period of one (1) year from the date of initial availability and thereafter is month to month unless thirty (30) days written notice is given by Customer or JEA to terminate the Agreement.

As a ProGas customer, you can choose to be a metered customer or a bulk customer. Please add this as a note in the Comment section of the web form application.

Metered

As a metered customer, I understand I will pay for my propane as I use it on my monthly utility bill. I also agree to pay a “Customer Charge” at the rate determined by JEA. I understand that this charge also will appear on my monthly bill during that time period. I also understand that if I use less than 100 gallons of propane per year for two consecutive years I will be classified as a Standby Customer and will be charged a tank rental fee for the year.

Bulk

As a bulk customer, I understand that I will pay for my propane when JEA refills my tank. I also agree to pay an annual tank rental fee as determined by JEA. I also understand that as a bulk customer I will not be entitled to traditional service privileges. As a bulk customer, I can choose to have JEA refill my tank automatically or to call JEA when I need a refill.

JEA's Facilities

All tanks, pumps, piping, hoses, fittings, adaptors, signage and other facilities necessary to provide the propane supplied, shall be furnished and installed on the Customers premises by JEA and shall remain the property of JEA. Customer shall provide suitable space for JEA’s facilities and shall protect them from damage, injury, and or theft, and indemnify JEA for any and all damage, injury and/or theft, and shall permit no person other than an agent of JEA, or a person otherwise authorized, to tamper with, inspect or remove the same. Customer agrees that JEA representatives shall have the right of free use, ingress and egress to such equipment at all times for the purpose of installation, operation, repair or removal. I agree to abide by the policies and procedures of JEA.
