YOUR PRIVACY

Upper Dublin Township respects your privacy. We want you to make the most of our website and feel confident while doing so online. We have a clear privacy policy: we collect no personally identifiable information unless you voluntarily supply it. This privacy statement explains under what circumstances we gather your individual information, how we use it, and who may access that information. It also provides you the means to "opt out" of providing personal information that you do not wish to provide and to access, change, or remove any identifying information already collected. We believe that your privacy is of the utmost importance, which is why this statement regarding privacy of personally identifiable information provided online conforms to federal and state law. Please read this policy in its entirety. You may contact us with any questions or comments by using the contact information listed at the end of this privacy policy. Also note that this privacy policy applies only to the Upper Dublin Township website, and specifically does not apply to other companies or organizations websites, which may be linked to ours.

PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION WE COLLECT ONLINE

When you visit our website, we do not collect any personally identifiable information without your consent. If you are simply perusing our site and have not conducted any financial or other transactions on it, we collect no personally identifiable information from you. In order to make purchases of services on the Township’s Online Store, however, we require that you provide us with your name, address, phone, email address, credit card information and in some cases detailed information about participants signing up for programs. We use this information to complete and confirm all such transactions on our website. If you prefer not to provide your personally identifiable information online, but are still interested in receiving any information from us, you may address your inquiry to the Township Receptionist at (215) 643-1600 ext. “0” or to any of the alternative means of contact listed at the end of this privacy statement.

HOW WE PROTECT YOUR INFORMATION

Upper Dublin Township is dedicated to the security of your personally identifiable information, and we take every commercially reasonable precaution to maintain that protection. To prevent unauthorized access or disclosure, maintain data accuracy, and facilitate the appropriate use of information, we use physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to protect the personally identifiable information we collect online. Encryption tools are used when collecting or transferring sensitive information such as credit card numbers. Additional database content is protected either by means of a two key encryption algorithm or behind a firewall using security software.

DO WE EMPLOY "COOKIES"?

Yes. "Cookies" are small data files stored on your own computer's hard drive. They are generated by websites such as ours to provide users with a personalized and enhanced online experience. By assigning and storing a unique user name cookie on your hard drive, we are able to offer you personalized collection, filtering, and delivery of information that we feel will be of the greatest interest and value to you. Be assured that cookies, by themselves, cannot be used to reveal or discover the identity of the individual user; your acceptance of our cookie will not compromise your anonymity while using our website.

OUR USE OF YOUR PERSONALLY INDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION

Upper Dublin Township does not rent, sell or otherwise share your personally identifiable information with any third party. Our primary use of the personal information you volunteer is to provide you services. We also may store and use your personal information for our own internal purposes as required to complete your transactions with us and to manage our website database information. We specifically reserve the right to access, monitor, and retrieve password-protected information to ensure your compliance with our website Terms and Conditions, and to comply with the law. Additionally, composite tracking information generated by cookies for traffic accounting and content analysis may be shared with third parties for the purpose of documenting site activity and other trends. We emphasize that the foregoing statistical information is not linked to any personal information and cannot identify any individual user of our website.

OUR RETENTION OF YOUR PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE DATA

Once you have provided personally identifiable information to us, we will store and maintain the information you have volunteered for so long as we are required by law unless and until you ask us to delete it from our database. Our retention of your data allows us to continue providing you with our website’s services without interruption.

CHOICE

We believe that choice is one of the most important privacy principles. You have the choice not to submit any personally identifiable information to us, although under such circumstances you would be unable to complete certain transactions on our website. You also may choose to submit only those mandatory fields of data absolutely required for completing any transactions on our website. Please note that you will not be able to opt out with regard to the collection and disclosure of aggregate information. Such information does not include anything personally identifiable, however, and simply reflects statistical analysis of various aspects of site usage.

ACCESS AND ACCURACY

We strive to keep your personally identifiable information as accurate as possible. As an online user, you will have the opportunity to access and change your personal contact information at any time on our Citizen Action Center. Should you at any time desire to remove your name and related information from our database, you may contact us at Township Receptionist Email. After receipt of such a request, we will remove your personally identifiable information from our database as soon as commercially reasonable.

LINKS/ONLINE DISCUSSIONS/OFFLINE ACTIVITIES

This website contains links to other sites. We encourage you to be aware when you leave our site and to read the privacy statements of each and every website that collects personally identifiable information. This privacy statement applies solely to information collected by us on this website, and we do not bear any responsibility for any actions or policies of such third party websites. Moreover, we disclaim all responsibility for the subsequent use of an email address or any other personally identifiable information posted on or otherwise provided by the user in bulletin board or chat room discussion, emails or instant messaging on our website. Finally, this privacy policy applies only to our online activities at our website and specifically is not applicable to any offline activities in which we may participate.

YOUR CONSENT
