Should I run a dehumidifier in my basement?

If the room has a high relative humidity, you should only run a dehumidifier in the wintertime. Is that correct? A built-in humidistat can be found in some dehumidifiers. If the humidity is over 50 percent, you would benefit from running a dehumidifier. There is a higher risk of mold growth when humidity is over 50 percent.
