I. INFORMATION COLLECTED
We collect non-personally identifiable information about you by tracking your activities through your IP address, most-recently visited URL and referral sites. This information is used only for identifying certain information such as hits, referral sites and unique IP addresses.
We do not collect any personally identifiable information about you unless you voluntarily submit such information to us, for example, by registering a personal account with GovDelivery, Inc. (“GovDelivery”) for emergency services and other online services. The types of personally identifiable information that may be requested include your name, address, e-mail address, and telephone number. Additionally, we will collect other information unique to your interests as well as such other personal information that you may choose to submit. This additional information (i.e. household information, age, whether anyone in your house has special needs) is used so that your local emergency response (Police, Fire and EMS) can assist in emergency situations that pertain to you, your family and your home.
All data collected is the property of Cuyahoga County, Ohio (the “County”) and is strictly intended for use by the County to provide notification of emergencies or important issues that may concern you and your household. GovDelivery and the County are subject to and all account holders are protected by the Electronic Communications Privacy Act. Neither GovDelivery nor the County will sell, rent, swap, or otherwise disclose your information to any third party. GovDelivery maintains a secured area in multiple datacenters for transmission of data collected on the site, and stores all such data in a private and secure database that is not directly accessible on the internet.
III. USE OF INFORMATION
The County will only use the information you provide to us for the purpose for which such information was provided. Account holders may elect to deregister at anytime.
Our site has industry standard security measures in place to protect the loss, misuse and alteration of the information under our control. While there is no such thing as "perfect security" on the Internet, we will take all reasonable steps to ensure the safety of your personal information.
