Links to Non-Cobb EMC Sites

For the convenience of our users, some pages of our website offer you the ability to link to and view pages of websites not operated or controlled by Cobb EMC (such as weather and financial information). Often, but not always, you can tell that you have linked to a non-Cobb EMC website because the website will open a separate browser window. Links by Cobb EMC to such external websites do not imply endorsement by Cobb EMC of that company, its site or its privacy policy. Cobb EMC and its affiliates do not monitor or control the content or the privacy policies of the external sites and are therefore not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of linked external websites. When using a link to a non-Cobb EMC website, we recommend that you investigate the privacy practices and policies of such external site.
