Pueblo.org Website Policy
Personally Identifiable Information on Casual Visitors Not Collected and Retained.
For the purposes of this statement “personally identifiable information” means any information relating to an identified or identifiable individual who is the subject of the information.
Residents do not have to provide personal information to visit Pueblo County’s Internet Site to read, download or print information. Government agencies may request personally identifiable information from you in order to provide specific services that you request. Any information collected for that purpose would be only that which is necessary to provide those services and will be handled as it would be on an in-person visit to a government office.
Some Unidentifiable Information Routinely Collected
In order to provide new services, design a more customer friendly site and facilitate access to it, Pueblo County analyzes traffic on the site. Only information that is not personally identifiable such as web pages or services accessed, IP (Internet Protocol) addresses, date, time, and browser types and versions are collected and used for this purpose. The site does not attempt to associate this data with information that is personally identifiable (such as an e-mail address).
The County does not monitor your web-browsing activities with cookies. However, cookies may be used by some County applications (e.g. property search, on-line forms, e-commerce, etc.) when necessary to complete a transaction, to process data submitted to us online or to pass information from one Web page to another.
If you choose to share personal information, such as sending a message, or filling out an electronic form with personal information, this information will be used to fulfill the request for which the information was submitted. This may require that the information be shared with another County department.
Use of Constituent E-Mail Addresses
E-mail addresses obtained as a result of a request to the County site will not be sold or given to other private companies for marketing purposes. E-mail or other information requests sent to the County Web site may be maintained in order to respond to the request or to forward the request to the appropriate department. Individuals may be able to receive updates on issues important to them, but only if they choose to “opt-in” to that specific service. By “opting-in” to one such service they do not “opt-in” to other services. Should they subsequently choose not to receive such informational updates via e-mail they can remove themselves at any time.
Personally Identifiable Information Available on Governmental Web Sites
All content contained within or associated the Pueblo County Internet is subject to the provisions of the Colorado Public (Open) Records Act, §24-72-201 et.seq., C.R.S., as amended. Information that is not confidential and is available during an in-person visit to a government office may be posted for electronic access through Pueblo County’s Internet portal.
Online Profiling is the practice of aggregating information about resident’s preferences and interests, gathered primarily by tracking their movements online, and using the resulting citizen profiles to create targeted content on Web sites. Pueblo County does not conduct or participate in online profiling.
Content pushing is the automatic delivery of applications and information to users and includes the use of broadcast e-mail. Such services will be provided only with the use of broadcast e-mail. Such services will be provided only with the prior authorization of the citizen on an opt-in basis for each specific service; citizens must be able to remove themselves from that service at any time via the World Wide Web. Opting-in for one service does not constitute opting-in for all services. In order to opt-in, the citizen must be informed exactly what service they are requesting, what information is required in order to provide that service, and how to subsequently remove themselves from that service should they choose to do so.
All forms of advertising are prohibited on the County Web site. Any information provided about organizations, businesses or other entity is supplied solely for the information of a reader of the site, and is not an endorsement or advertisement. Pueblo County does not accept or solicit advertising of any kind within this web site.
