We will not collect personal information about a website user when the City website is visited unless an individual chooses to provide information voluntarily. We do not give, share, sell, or transfer any personal information to a third party, unless we are legally required to do so. We analyze user traffic patterns on the City’s website from information that is automatically provided by a user’s browser when the site is visited. This information includes the IP address of computers or networks, the date, time, and page visited, the user’s browser and operating system, and the referring page (the last web page visited before clicking on a link to the City’s site). We use the aggregated information from all of visitors to measure server performance and improve the content of the site. We also track the keywords that are entered into search engine services to measure interest in specific topics.
