WEBSITE PRIVACY STATEMENT

Purpose

The purpose of the statement is to inform users of this site with regard to the collection and use of personally identifiable information.

Definition of Personally Identifiable Information

For the purposes of this statement "personally identifiable information" means any information relating to an identified or identifiable individual who is the subject of the information.

Personally Identifiable Information Not Routinely Collected

Citizens do not have to routinely provide personal information to visit the City of West Wendover website or to download information. Government agencies may request personally identifiable information from you in order to provide requested specialized services, but such information is handled as it would be on an in-person visit to the City Hall.

Personally Identifiable Information Available From Governmental Web Sites

Access to personally identifiable information in public records at state and local levels of government in Nevada is controlled primarily by Chapter 239B of the Nevada Revised Statutes. While Chapter 239B sets the general policies for access to government records in the state of Nevada, other sections of the Nevada Revised Statutes as well as other federal laws also deal with confidentiality issues.

The IP (Internet Protocol) numbers of computers (servers) used to visit this site are noted as part of our statistical analysis on use of our web sites so we may better design services and improve access to them.  However, the site does not attempt to gain personally identifiable information on individual users and associate them with IP addresses.

Use of Constituent E-mail Addresses

E-mail addresses obtained as a result of a request to the city site will not be sold or given to other private companies for marketing purposes. The information collected is subject to the access and confidentiality provisions of Chapter 239B, other applicable sections of the Nevada Revised Statutes or federal law. E-mail or other information requests sent to the city web site may be maintained in order to respond to the request, forward that request to the appropriate agency, communicate updates to the city page that may be of interest to citizens, or to provide the city web designer with valuable customer feedback to assist in improving the site. Individuals will be provided with the ability "opt out" at anytime of any communications regarding new service updates.

Data Security and Quality

We are committed to data security and the data quality of personally identifiable information that is either available from or collected by the city web site and have taken reasonable precautions to protect personally identifiable information from loss, misuse or alteration. Any third parties responsible for this information are committed to the same principles, and also are required by contract to follow the same policies and guidelines as the state of Utah in protecting this information. Unless otherwise prohibited by state or federal law, rule or regulation the individual is granted the ability to access and correct personally identifiable information whether or not the information inaccuracy was accidental or by created unauthorized access.

Non City Web Sites

Various web sites may be linked through www.westwendovercity.com, www.westwendovercity.net, www.westwendovercity.org. Many of these sites, including private sector sites, are not subject to Chapter 239B and may also not be subject to other sections of the Nevada Revised Statutes or federal law. Visitors to those sites are advised to check the privacy statements of these sites and be cautious about providing personally identifiable information without a clear understanding of how the information will be used.
