Information collected via the Internet
Rocky View County’s website does not automatically gather any personal information from you, such as your name, phone number, or e-mail address. This information is only obtained if you supply it voluntarily, usually through contacting us via e-mail, or through an online form.
Any personal information you do provide is protected under Alberta’s Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act. This means that, at the point of collection, you should be informed that your personal information is being collected, the purpose for which it is being collected, and that you have a right of access to the information.
Rocky View County’s web server does automatically collect a limited amount of non-personal information essential for the operation and security of our website and the other sites that reside on the server. Some of this information (e.g. browser type) does not identify who you are. Other information, such as your Internet domain name or IP address, may potentially identify you depending on the naming standards followed by your Internet service provider. You may wish to ask them about their policies and practices in this regard. This information is not used to identify individuals who come to the site, nor is it regularly disclosed to other public bodies or individuals.
If you have concerns about this, you can change the settings on your web browser to deny cookies, or to warn you when a site is about to deposit cookies on your hard drive. Cookies are not retained by the site but reside on your machine and are usually marked for removal by your browser after a period of 28 days.
