Privacy Policy

The City is dedicated to maintaining your confidence and trust, and accordingly maintains the following privacy policy to protect personal information provided online.

BASIC CONFIDENTIALITY POLICY-PERSONAL INFORMATION

It is City policy that personal information, such as your name, postal and e-mail address or telephone number, is private and confidential. Accordingly, the personal information you provide is stored in a secure location, is accessible only by designated staff, and is used only for the purposes for which you provide the information. You have the right to inspect and correct web site personal records created by the City. If you indicate on our sites that you would like to receive information about City programs and services, your personal information will be added to appropriate City mailing lists.

CONDITIONAL RELEASE OF PERSONAL INFORMATION TO THIRD PARTIES

Personal information will not be released to third parties except to further the purpose for which you provide the information, or if release is required by law or is pertinent to judicial or governmental investigations or proceedings. There are no other circumstances under which we will provide or sell personal information to third parties.

NO COMPUTER TRACKING OF IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION

Our web site is not set up to track, collect or distribute personal information about its visitors. It does recognize the home server of visitors, but not e-mail addresses. This information is used only for internal purposes by City technical support staff. No personal information is collected.

In addition, our web sites track information about the visits to our web sites. For example, we compile statistics that show the daily number of visitors to our sites, the daily requests we receive for particular files on our web sites, and what countries those requests come from. These aggregated statistics are used internally to better provide services to the public and may also be provided to others, but again, the statistics contain no personal information and cannot be used to gather such information.

IMMUNITIES RESERVED Nothing contained herein shall be interpreted to waive, in whole or in part, the City's governmental immunities (whether statutory or common-law). All such immunities in contract and in tort are hereby reserved.

If you have any questions or concerns on this Legal Notice and Privacy Statement, please do not hesitate to contact us at webmaster@annapolis.gov.
