Privacy and Security Statement
The Town of Midland is committed to protecting the privacy of any personal information you may provide when visiting our Web site. Part of that commitment is to explain what information may be collected and why, how it will be used, and who may have access to it. Our practices have been designed to ensure compliance with privacy provisions of the Municipal Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act.
This privacy statement applies to interactions with the Town of Midland Web server. It does not apply to any other Web site. The following is an overview of our Web site practices:
When you visit the Town of Midland Web site, you do so anonymously - there is no need to tell us who you are. If you direct an enquiry to a Municipal Department, we will ask you to provide your name and mailing address or e-mail address for the purpose of responding to your enquiry. Only those who 'need to know' will have access to any personal information provided.
Our Municipal Web server does not collect or retain your e-mail address in a database format although some Internet Service Providers may automatically include your e-mail address with your IP address (Internet Protocol).
Any personal information that the Municipality may collect is used only for the purpose for which it was intended. Personal information is disposed according to a records retention by-law.
The Town of Midland logs HTTP requests to the Town Web server. These logs record the IP address of site visitors. An IP address is the number automatically assigned to the computer or to the ISP (Internet Service Provider) requesting a URL.
Our logging is passive and we don't use technologies such as 'cookies' or 'Web bugs' to maintain any information on site visitors. Logged information is recorded in non-identifiable form and is used for Web site system administration. Log files are archived and used for system analysis, maintenance and site evaluation.
We welcome any comments and suggestions about this site. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you have any questions about the Town's Web site collection, use and disclosure practices, please contact the Clerk's Department at 705-526-4275.
