The ACSA has a long history of protecting your privacy and our concern for your privacy in the electronic age remains a diligently exercised priority. Our Internet privacy policy is:

  • You do not have to give us personal information to visit our site.
  • We will collect personally identifiable information (name, email address, or other unique identifier) only if specifically and knowingly provided by you.
  • Personally identifying information you provide will be used only in connection with ACSA programs and services or for such other purposes as are described at the point of collection.
  • Web Server Activity - Like most Web servers on the Internet, ACSA servers collect and store within Web access logs all of the information that your Web browser sends when it requests a Web page, including:
    • The name, domain, and numerical internet address of the host computer (typically a computer belonging to your Internet Service Provider and not your personal computer) from which you access the Internet
    • The date and time you accessed our site
    • The Internet address of the Web page where your inquiry originated
    • The page you requested from our site and the number of characters sent to your computer
    • The information your Web browser software sends as its so-called “User Agent,” which typically identifies the browser software and may also indicate the operating system used in your personal computer and the type of computer
    • It is impossible to determine the actual identity of an individual user from this information. The logs are periodically summarized and analyzed to study site usage over time and to perform other studies to help us improve the site's organization, performance, and usefulness. Monthly extracts of the log files are archived and stored offline at our discretion for an indefinite period of time. Some statistical summaries derived from these data may be retained online or offline at our discretion for an indefinite period of time.
  • E-Mail or Web Forms - When you send us personal identifying information by contacting us via e-mail (that is, in a message containing a question or comment) or by filling out a form that e-mails us this information, we use it to respond to your requests. We may forward your e-mail or information to other ACSA employees, County or contract personnel who are better able to answer your questions.
  • Identification for Law Enforcement or Unauthorized Use - The only time that we will attempt to identify individual users or to share any information we receive with any parties outside of the ACSA is (1) in the course of officially authorized law enforcement investigations or (2) in the event of a suspected attempt to deliberately circumvent our system’s security with the intent to gain unauthorized access or to do physical damage (for example, an attack by hackers).
  • We do not give, sell or transfer any personal information to a third party.
  • We may enable "cookies." A "cookie" is a file placed on your personal computer's hard drive by a Web site that allows it to monitor your use of the site.
