Personal information is recorded information about an identifiable individual. Personal information includes such information as a person’s name, address, email address, phone number, date of birth and financial information.
The RDKS is committed to providing our visitors with a web site that respects and protects their privacy.
The IP address of every visitor to the website is collected, but you remain anonymous because the Regional District cannot use IP addresses to identify individuals. Some Internet Service Providers provide email addresses with IP addresses. When this occurs, the Regional District does not retain the email addresses in a database.
The Regional District uses IP addresses to:
• analyze trends (i.e. what information is being accessed, what information is being accessed the most);
• administer its site;
• track visitors' movements (i.e. where they go on the site and how they get there)
• gather broad demographic information for aggregate use.
All of these uses are for web service and web site management improvement purposes only.
