Information We Collect
Your Usage of Our Site. This Website automatically tracks certain information about you based upon your use of our Site. We use this information to conduct internal research on our users’ demographics and behavior to better understand and serve our users. This information is compiled and analyzed on an aggregate [anonymized/non-anonymized] basis. This information may include the URL that you just came from, which URL you next go to, what browser you are using, and your IP address, among other things.
Cookies. In addition, we use “cookies” on certain pages of our Site. Cookies are small files that can be used to track a user’s steps or automatically generate information for a user. Some features of our Website may only be available through the use of a cookie. Cookies are stored on your hard drive, not on our Site.
Our Use of Your Information
Personal Information. We collect no identifiable personal information (such as name, address, and phone number) about you unless you voluntarily participate in an activity that requires such information (i.e. sending an e-mail, applying for a license or permit, or participating in a survey). If you send us e-mails or choose to voluntarily submit personal information to Canyon County through this Website we will collect such information about you as you may choose to disclose. By doing so, you are giving Canyon County your permission to use the information for the stated purpose.
Public Disclosure. All information collected on this Website becomes a public record unless an exemption in law exists. In Idaho, laws exist to ensure that government is open and the public has a right to access appropriate government records and information. At the same time, there are exceptions to the public’s right to access public records that serve various needs, including the privacy of individuals. Both state and federal laws provide exceptions. We may request personally identifiable information from you in order to provide requested services, but such information is handled as it would be on an in-person visit to a County office.
Disclosures You Make to Third Parties
This Website contains links to outside third party websites to assist us in providing information and services. When you leave this Website Canyon County’s privacy policies will not apply. Canyon County does not control the privacy policies of third parties. When you disclose information to third parties on a linked website about yourself, you are subject to the privacy customs and policies of that third party.
