The City of Stamford has created this privacy statement in order to demonstrate our firm commitment to privacy. The following discloses our information gathering and dissemination practices for these Web sites: CityofStamford.org, ci.stamford.ct.us, Stamfordct.gov.

Some of our applications collect usage statistics (information about our users) for the purpose of diagnosing problems, and tuning the site to serve the broadest possible array of browsers and platforms. The information we may collect can include, but is not limited to the following:

  • Browser type and version
  • Operating system platform and version
  • IP address
  • Time and date of access to the site
  • Files downloaded
  • How you got to our site ( http-referer)

Our site may use cookies to keep track of your activity while you visit our site. We use cookies to deliver content specific to your interests or to control the appearance of content based upon when and where you visit the site. We do not use cookies to log information about our users and do not use cookies that persist past the current session on the Internet. Our cookies will be deleted when you close your browser.

We will not collect your personal information unless you purposefully and knowingly provide it to us. If you use an application that collects detailed and personal data such as home address, phone number or email address, that data will be used solely for the purpose that it was collected and will not be distributed or sold to any other private or public agency or entity unless by force of Law.

Our site may contain links to other sites outside the City’s system. The City of Stamford is not responsible for the privacy or content practices of such Web sites. In other words, once you click on a link and are transferred to another web site, the City of Stamford’s privacy policy no longer applies. By policy, these links are limited to other governmental sites, and non-profit organizations actively supported by the City of Stamford. The City web pages are not a public forum, and are not intended as an outlet for public speech or expression of individual opinion, irrespective of viewpoint or content, whether by posting or linking.

The City’s sites have security measures in place to protect the loss, misuse, and alteration of the information under our control. We continuously verify our security measures to keep our information secure and strive to take reasonable and appropriate steps to protect personal information from unauthorized access or disclosure. (The City of Stamford’s approach to security separates the city’s internal information from information that is accessed from the Website.)

Visitors to our website should be aware that the City of Stamford may be required to disclose personal information in response to valid legal process such as a search warrant, subpoena, court order, or pursuant to the Connecticut Freedom of Information Act. The possibility exists that the disclosure of our records may be compelled in some civil, criminal or administrative matters. Disclosure may also be necessary to protect the City of Stamford’s legal rights. Periodically, we may modify our policies as described in this Privacy Policy. The City of Stamford reserves the right to modify this statement at any time.
