Privacy Policy

Privacy

Welcome to the Official Chemung County Web site. Chemung County has created this privacy statement in order to demonstrate our firm commitment to privacy for our web site users. Other web sites operated by state and county agencies have different policies. We suggest that you read the privacy policies for each web site that you visit, and any external site that you visit through a link appearing at this site. The privacy statement may change at any time. The information collected prior to the time of such
a change will be treated as stated in the policy in effect at the time of collection. The following paragraphs disclose our information gathering and dissemination practices. If you do not agree with any term in this policy, please do not use this site.

A Privacy Partnership

At this Web site, we attempt to protect your privacy to the maximum extent possible. However, because some of the information we receive through this Web site is subject to the New York State Public Officers Law, we cannot ensure absolute privacy. Information that you provide to us through this site may be made available to members of the public under the law. This policy informs you of the information that we collect from you at this site, what we do with it, to whom it may be disseminated, and how you can access it. Based on this information, you can make an informed choice about your use of this site. You can maximize the benefits of your privacy partnership with the County by making informed choices about whether to share personally identifiable information with us through this site.

Personally Identifiable Information

We use the term “personally identifiable information” to mean any information that could reasonably be used to identify you, including your name, address, e-mail address, Social Security number, birth date, bank account information, credit card information, or any combination of information that could be used to identify you.

Information Voluntarily Provided by You.

This site collects voluntary information from you only from the e-mails or on-line forms that you send through this site. These e-mails and on-line forms will contain personally identifiable information. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure.

Warranties

This web site and all of its subpages are provided on an "AS IS" and "As Available" basis. Chemung County makes no warranty, guarantee or promise, expressed or implied, as to the information presented on this web site or any of the subpages that make up the site, including, without limitation, the accuracy and timeliness of any information contained herein. Information contained on this web site and any of its subpages is presented for informational purposes only. Chemung County assumes no responsibility for the use or application of any posted material and shall not be liable, under any circumstances, for any claims or damages arising directly or indirectly from information presented herein. This web site is intended solely for the purpose of electronically
providing the public with general information and convenient access to data resources. Chemung County assumes no responsibility for any error, omissions or other discrepancies between the electronic and printed versions
of documents. Chemung County reserves the right to make changes, corrections, and/or improvements to this web site and all of its subpages and to the products, services, and information contained herein, at any time without prior notice.

Information Automatically Collected and Stored by this Site

This site does not collect “cookies” (see Definition below), but does collect and store indefinitely your Internet Protocol (“IP”)
address, (which does not identify you as an individual), as well as information about the date and time of your visit, whether a file you have requested exists, and how many “bytes” of information were transmitted to you over the Web from this site. We use your IP address to assess the frequency of visits to this site and popularity of its various pages and functions. We will not attempt to match any personally identifiable information which you provide to us with your IP address, unless there are reasonable grounds
to believe that doing so would provide information that is relevant and material to a criminal investigation.

Dissemination of Your Personally Identifiable Information

We do not sell any personally identifiable information collected through this Web site. However, once you voluntarily submit
personally identifiable information to us through an e-mail or on-line forms, its dissemination is governed by the Public Officers Law, and other applicable laws and regulations. For this reason, part or all of the information you send us may be provided to a member of the public in response to a public records request.

In addition, the information that you voluntarily submit will be disclosed only to County employees or officials with a “need to know” for purposes of fulfilling their job responsibilities. They will only use the information to answer your questions, respond to any requests for assistance, and fulfill the County’s legal obligations. Where appropriate, we may provide the information
submitted by you to the person or company that is the subject of your inquiry, or to a government agency responsible for the matters referred to in your communication.

Your Access and Opportunity to Correct.

The New York State Public Officers Law provides you with certain rights to get information about you that is in our records.

Security

Because this site does not encrypt incoming e-mail, you should not send information that you consider highly sensitive through this Web site. We use standard security measures to ensure that your personally identifiable information is not lost, misused,
altered, or unintentionally destroyed. We also use software programs to monitor network traffic to identify unauthorized attempts to upload or change information, or otherwise cause damage. Except for authorized law enforcement investigations, no attempts are made to identify individual users or their usage habits.

Links Disclaimer

In order to provide visitors with certain information, this website provides links to local, State and federal government agencies, and websites of other organizations. A link does not constitute an endorsement of the content, view point,
accuracy, opinions, policies, products, services or accessibility of that website. Once you link to another website from this website, including one maintained by the County, you are subject to the terms and conditions of that website, including, but not limited to, its privacy policy.  Our provision of these links does not imply approval of the listed destinations, warrant the accuracy of any information in those destinations, constitute endorsement of the entities to whose sites the links are made, or endorse any of the opinions expressed on any of these outside Web sites. These Web sites operate under the auspices and at the direction of their respective owners. If you have a question or comment about any of these sites, please contact them directly on their site.

Information Disclaimer

Information provided on this website is intended to allow the public immediate access to public information. While all attempts are made to provide accurate, current, and reliable information, the County recognizes the possibility of human and/or mechanical error. Therefore, the County, its employees, officers and agencies make no representations as to the accuracy, completeness, currency,
or suitability of the information provided by this website, and deny any expressed or implied warranty as to the same.

Data Collection

Currently, the County does not knowingly collect personal information from children or create profiles of children through
this website. People are cautioned that the collection of personal information provided by any individual in an email will be treated the same as information given by an adult, and may, if not protected by federal or State law, be subject to public access. The County encourages parents and teachers to be involved in children's Internet activities and guide the children whenever children are asked to provide personal information on-line.
