Privacy Policy

The City of Fayetteville - Privacy Policy

We are very sensitive to the privacy of Internet users who visit this site. Therefore, we endeavor to provide users all information regarding our identity, how we use personal information that is collected, how to contact us, and how they can access and update their personal information. We also inform users of all potential recipients of the personal information. We do not use any personal information for purposes beyond those stated herein.

Our Identity and How to Contact Us

This site is owned and operated by the City of Fayetteville. Users can contact us by linking to the contact page and leaving a message detailing any questions or concerns.


Personal Information: Collection and Use

Personal Data. The City of Fayetteville collects information from users only on a voluntary basis. All private data that identifies a user is kept private unless the user chooses to include this information in his or her public profile. Items marked as private will always remain this way unless the user includes this information in items not marked as private. All private profile data is restricted and is used by administration personnel only for customer service support. The general public and registered users cannot view membership profiles of another user.

Cookies and Clear Gifs. In our effort to improve users’ site experience, the site uses cookies and clear gifs to provide pages and features that are most compatible with users’ preferences. A cookie is a small text file that is stored on a browser when a user visits a Web site. A clear gif is a graphic file, rather than a text file, that is similar in function to a cookie. Cookies and clear gifs do not identify the user personally; they simply identify the browser and track the settings, preferences, or features. When a user returns to the site, the user’s browser sends the cookie or clear gif to the City of Fayetteville Web server.

Internet Protocol (“IP”) Addresses. When users request pages from the City of Fayetteville website, our servers may log their IP address in order to improve site administration. This information, along with the other information listed above, can also be used to produce usage statistics to help us better meet the needs of users and determine specific interests.

Forum Moderation

Information posted in the forums that could possibly reveal the identity of an individual without consent will be removed.

Protecting Information

The City of Fayetteville is equipped with security measures to protect against the loss, misuse, and unauthorized alteration of the information under our control. We cannot guarantee that the information will not be lost or misused, but we make every effort to ensure that it is secured to avoid such problems.

Children's Privacy

We do not knowingly collect information from children under 13. Children under 13 are strictly prohibited from submitting personal information on this website.

Third-Party Links

The City of Fayetteville is not responsible for the privacy practices or content of any third-party sites. For your own protection, you should review the policies of similar sites to ensure they meet your personal expectations of privacy.

Future Changes to Privacy Policy

We reserve the right, at our discretion, to change, modify, add, or remove portions of the Privacy Policy at any time. As we do not typically use personal information except as provided for above, we are not in a position to notify each user of material changes in our Privacy Policy. We encourage you to check the Privacy Policy to remain informed of any changes.

Effective Date

This version of the Privacy Policy became effective on May 17, 2006.
