Thank you for visiting the City of Saint John website. Your privacy is important to us. To better protect your privacy, we provide this notice explaining our on-line information practices and the choices you can make about the way your information is collected and used at this site.
The Information We Collect
We may place a "cookie" on your computer. A "cookie" is a small file written to your computers' hard drive that records certain information about your Internet usage, such as your IP address, browser type, or domain name. This information is not linked to personally identifiable information.
Only the information that you provide, or the choices you make while visiting a website can be stored in a cookie. For example, the site cannot determine your e-mail address unless you choose to type it. Allowing a website to create a cookie does not give that or any other site access to the rest of your computer and only the site that created the cookie can read it. You may set your Internet browser preferences to notify you when you receive a cookie or decline acceptance of cookies.
The web server may automatically collect information about which pages you visit, as well as your IP address and domain name. We may use this information for various purposes such as tailoring our website content and assessing the amount of traffic to various parts of our website.
Disclosure of Personal Information
The City of Saint John will not sell, share, rent or disclose your personal data to any third party. We ensure that your personal data will not be disclosed to government institutions and authorities except if required by law or other regulation.
Please note that the City of Saint John website contains links to other websites whose information practices may be different from ours. This privacy statement applies only to information collected by the City of Saint John website. Visitors should consult the other sites' privacy statements whenever interacting with any web site.
We take precautions to protect our users' information. Only authorized personnel of the City of Saint John, who need the information to perform a specific task (for example, responding to your request for information) are granted access to personally identifiable information and are only allowed access to it when absolutely necessary, and then under strict legal guidelines as to what use may be made of such information.
Although we take appropriate measures to safeguard against unauthorized disclosures of information, we cannot assure you that personally identifiable information that we collect will never be disclosed in a manner that is inconsistent with this Privacy Statement.
