Collection & Use of Personal Information
The Municipality of Northern Bruce Peninsula only gathers information that we need to know in order to respond to your request (e.g. if you contact us via the website, we will need your email address so we can respond). You can always choose to not provide it and contact us through another method (e.g. contact us via telephone or in-person).
We only collect and use the personal information for purposes that you have agreed to. We do not collect personal information about any of our website visitors unless you provide the information in a form.
The Municipality is the sole owner of the information collected through our website. We do not exchange, rent, sell, or otherwise disclose your personal information to any outside organization or person unless the disclosure is required by law.
We use current security measures to keep your personal information safe. All the personal information you provide us is stored in a secure computing environment protected by firewalls to prevent unauthorized access. We control access so that only people who need to access the information can access it.
We may change this privacy and security information from time to time. If we make any major changes in the way we use your personal information, we will notify you by posting an announcement on this website.
Our website stores information in a small text file, called a cookie, on your computer. We use what is called a "persistent cookie," which is stored as a file on your computer and remains there when you close your web browser. Once the cookie is saved on your computer, our website is the only site that can access and read the information that you provide. We will not provide this information to any third parties or use it for sending unsolicited email.
