Lack of Notice

Communications made through the Website’s e-mail and messaging system shall not be deemed to constitute legal notice with regard to any existing or potential claim or cause of action against the Village of Shoreham, or any of its officers or employees, boards or commission or agents, where notice to the Village is required by any law, rule or regulation.

Personal Privacy Statement

The purpose of this statement is to inform users of the Website with regard to the collection and use of personally identifiable information. “Personally identifiable information” is any information relating to an identified or identifiable individual who is the subject of the information. This includes the name, addresses, date of birth, social security number, credit card numbers or any combination of information that could be used to identify you.

The Village does not routinely collect personally identifiable information. You are not required to provide such information to simply use the Website or download information. If you wish to seek specialized services offered on the Website, however, or seek to use the “Contact Us” feature on the Website, personally identifiable information will be handled just like a visit in-person to the Village offices.

There are state and federal laws that ensure that government operations are open, so that the public has the right to have access and obtain copies of public records. These laws provide for the ability of the Village to withhold public disclosure to preserve the privacy of individuals.

The “Internet Protocol” (IP) addresses of computers used to access the Website are noted as part of how to better design and deliver Village services – and make the Website even better. The Village of Shoreham does not attempt to obtain personally identifiable information on individual users or associate individual users with IP addresses.

Some Village of Shoreham applications create “cookies” to store user information. These cookies are then sent to and stored on the user’s computer. Any application that uses cookies will clearly state that it does so. No user information will be obtained by the use of cookies except that which is required to run the particular application.

Internet Security

For site security, the Village may use software programs to monitor traffic to identify unauthorized attempts to upload or change information, or otherwise cause damage. Except for authorized law enforcement investigations, no attempts are made to identify individual users or their usage history.
