Collection of Personal Information
Central San does not automatically collect personally identifiable information about visitors who do no more than browse this site or download information from it. We do not release information about the collection of IP addresses to any third party, except under court order. While we maintain logs of user activity in order to help us manage the web site, the information stored in these logs does not identify users personally. The logs store such things as the domain name and IP addresses used to access our web site; the type of browsers and operating systems used by site visitors; the date and time of site visits; and the pages accessed. District staff may use this information to help improve the web site and its features.
Personal Information You Send
Central San values both your use of this site and feedback you provide. If you participate in a survey or send us an e-mail, your e-mail address and the other information you volunteer will be collected. In addition, visitors who request services through this site may be required to furnish additional information to enable us to provide the service requested. The additional information collected will be no more specific than if the visitor were requesting the service by any other means, including by telephone or an in-person visit to District facilities. We may share this information with other public agencies or organizations if such action is required to provide the assistance you are requesting.

With the importance of protecting user personal information in mind, we do not rent, sell or give away any information identifying you individually to third parties for marketing or mailing list purposes without your permission.
As a governmental agency, we are governed by the California Public Records Act. (California Government Code section 7920 et seq.)
