Privacy Policy & Terms of Use

Privacy Policy

This privacy notice discloses the privacy practices for the City of Lockport. This privacy notice applies solely to information collected by this website.

Types of Information We Collect:

The information we gather is either information (for example, your name and address) that you voluntarily supply when you submit inquiry forms or initiate transactions, or information gathered on usage patterns and preferences as visitors navigate the website, use our services such as email, or read our email newsletters.

Cookies:

To help make our website more responsive to the needs of our visitors, we use a standard feature of browser software called a “cookie” to assign each visitor a unique, random number that resides on your computer. A cookie does not identify the visitor, just the computer that a visitor uses to access our site. Unless you voluntarily identify yourself, we won’t know who you are, even if we assign a cookie to your computer, as the only personal information a cookie can contain is information you supply. A cookie cannot read unrelated data off your computer.

The use of cookies helps us deliver a better, more personalized service. For example, we use cookies to track the pages and services on our website visited by our users. We can build a better website if we know which pages and features our users are visiting and how often.

Browser-Level Information and IP Addresses:

We automatically collect limited information about your computer configuration when you visit our website, including the type of browser you use, the operating system you are running, the resolution of your computer monitor, the website that referred you, and your IP address. Your IP address is a number that is used by computers connected to the Internet to identify your computer so that data such as the websites you want to view can be transmitted to you. We use IP address information for analytical and trouble-shooting purposes.

Other Disclosures:

We may occasionally release information about our visitors when a release is appropriate to comply with the law, to protect the rights, property or safety of visitors to our sites, the public, our customers, or our government and its employees, agents, partners, and affiliates.

Please keep in mind that our communities are public spaces, so don’t post anything that you don’t want the world to see. Credit card numbers, product keys, and other confidential information, including anything covered under a non-disclosure agreement (NDA), should not be posted to any blogs, discussions, or other public areas.

Terms and Conditions

General: 

The purpose of the interactive portions of the website is to obtain suggestions, ideas, and feedback to benefit the Lockport community. Please avoid personal attacks, slurs, and profanity in your interactions. Please make sure that your postings are relevant to the subject at hand. It is normal and expected for some topics to drift from the stated subject. However, to ensure maximum benefit for all of our users, we encourage you to keep your postings as close to the subject as possible. Impersonating a government employee or another user is not allowed. We do not allow behavior or content related to illegal activities. Do not post or promote any materials that could spam, harm, or disrupt another user’s computer.

You may not link to any sites that violate the terms and conditions above. We reserve the right to ban any participant at any time that we feel does not comply with an appropriate code of conduct.

Disclaimers:

The website are provided on an “as is” basis without any warranties of any kind, express or implied. This site, to the fullest extent permitted by law, disclaims all warranties, including, but not limited to, the warranties of merchantability, title, non-infringement of third parties’ rights, and fitness for particular purpose. This site makes no warranties about the accuracy, reliability, completeness, or timeliness of the sites. Without limitation of the foregoing:

  • This site does not warrant that the site will operate error-free or that the site and its server is free of computer viruses or other harmful mechanisms. If your use of the site results directly or indirectly in the need for servicing or replacing equipment or data, this site is not responsible for those costs.
  • This site makes no representations or guarantees regarding the truthfulness, accuracy, legality, completeness, timeliness or reliability of any documents posted by users, or of any other form of communication engaged in by users. Documents may contain inaccuracies or typographical errors. You agree that any reliance on documents posted by users, or on any other form of communication with users, will be at your own risk.
  • This site makes no representations or guarantees regarding the content of the sites, including, but not limited to, broken links, inaccuracies or typographical errors.
  • This site makes no representations or guarantees regarding the effectiveness of the services or timeliness of the services in meeting your employment objectives. This site does not guarantee that the services will result in candidates being hired, positions being filled or employees being retained, and is not responsible or liable for any business, employment, hiring and/or salary decisions, for whatever reason made, made by you.

User Authentication: 

Because user authentication on the Internet is difficult, this site cannot and does not confirm that each User is who they claim to be. Because this site does not and cannot be involved in User-to-User dealings or control the behavior of participants on the site, in the event that you have a dispute with one or more Users, you release this site from claims, demands and damages (actual and consequential and direct and indirect) of every kind and nature, known and unknown, suspected and unsuspected, disclosed and undisclosed, arising out of or in any way connected with such disputes.
