Personal Information and Choice

The personal information collection and management policies, practices and procedures implemented by the City are governed by law. “Personal information” is information about a natural person that identifies or describes an individual, including, but not limited to, his or her name, social security number, physical description, home address, home telephone number, education, financial matters, and medical or employment history, readily identifiable to that specific individual. A domain name or Internet Protocol address is not considered personal information, however, it is considered "electronically collected personal information.

According to Government Code section 11015.5(d)(1), "electronically collected personal information" means any information that is maintained by an agency that identifies or describes an individual user, including, but not limited to, his or her name, social security number, physical description, home address, home telephone number, education, financial matters, medical or employment history, password, electronic mail address, and information that reveals any network location or identity, but excludes any information manually submitted to a state agency by a user, whether electronically or in written form, and information on or relating to individuals who are users serving in a business capacity, including, but not limited to, business owners, officers, or principals of that business. The City will not disclose, use for any purpose other than as specified at the time it was collected, or make available any personal information collected, except with the written consent of the subject of the information or as otherwise permitted by law or regulation.

Public Disclosure

Federal and State laws exist to ensure that government is open and that the public has a right to access appropriate records and information processed by government agencies. At the same time, there are exceptions to the public’s right to access public records. These exceptions serve various needs including maintaining privacy of individuals. Both State and federal laws provide exceptions. All information collected at this site becomes public record that may be subject to inspection and copying by the public, unless an exemption in law exists. In the event of a conflict between these disclosures and the California Public Records Act, the Information Practices Act of 1977, Government Code section 11015.5, the Federal Privacy Act or other law governing the disclosure of records, the applicable law will control.
