To make this site work properly, we sometimes place small data files called cookies on your device. Most big websites do this too. When you first visit the website, you will see the Avista Privacy Statement.


What are Cookies?

When you visit the website, you will see that this site uses cookies. The use of cookies enables the website to remember your actions and preferences (such as login, language, font size) over a period of time, therefore you do not have to keep re-entering them whenever you come back to the site or browse from one page to another. Generally speaking, cookies do not contain personal information from which you can be identified, unless you have furnished such information to the website.


How do we use Cookies?

A number of our pages use cookies to remember:

  • Your display preference, such as contrast colour settings or font sizes.
  • The screen site of your device to display the site appropriately.
  • For back-end architecture of the hosting service that manages the site.

Enabling these cookies is not strictly necessary for the website to work but it will provide you with a better browsing experience. You can delete or block these cookies, however if you do that some features of this site may not work as intended. Our website has links to other agencies. Please note, if you access another site through a link we provide, you are subject to the privacy policy of that site and links to other websites do not constitute an endorsement of that website by Avista.
