The Gerald Desmond Bridge Replacement Project recognizes that technology has changed the nature and accessibility of information and the prospective use of that information. While committed to applying technology to improve access to information, we are strongly committed to protecting your online privacy.
The purpose of this statement is to inform you about the types of information we gather when you use our website and app, how we may use that information, whether we disclose it to anyone, the security precautions we take to protect your privacy, and how to contact us if you have questions or concerns.
Collection of Information
We collect information that is used for analysis and statistical purposes that help us manage the website and app. Also, we collect information to assist us in delivering service and information to you.
(1) Information collected for statistical purposes. We automatically collect electronically generated information about your use of the website and app, such as the date, type of device used, and technical Internet protocol data. We collect this information about each user session from our use logs, and refer to it for statistical purposes.
(2) Information provided when using our interactive forms and functions. This information may include such things as your email address, depending on that particular service you use. We collect only those data necessary to provide the service that you are requesting.
Use of Information
If you send us an email message with a question or comment that contains personally identifying information, or fill out a form that transmits this information, we will only use the personally identifiable information to respond to your request and analyze trends. We may redirect your message to another agency or person in a better position to answer your question.
To provide you with the ability to receive directed email information in which you have expressed an interest, it is necessary for the Gerald Desmond Bridge Replacement Project to collect your email address. This information is used only for email distribution to the specific list or lists for which you have registered. By agreeing to use this service, you are granting us permission to send you periodic emails only about topics for which you registered. The Gerald Desmond Bridge Replacement Project will use your email address only for this permission-based email service.
Disclosure to Third Parties
Any information that we receive through use of our website and app is subject to the same provisions as information provided on paper. Otherwise, we do not share personal identifying information with any third party without your permission. We disclose only in aggregate form our statistical analyses or users’ demographics to third parties. This information is not reported or released to any outside parties unless we are legally required to do so in connection with law enforcement investigations or other legal proceedings. Further, we do not reveal any email address information to third parties for independent use unless you specifically authorize us to do so.
Sale of Data
The Gerald Desmond Bridge Replacement Project does not sell data for direct mail or advertising purposes.
The Gerald Desmond Bridge Replacement Project uses state-of-the-art security precautions that prevent personal information from being stolen or tampered with. We limit employee access to personally identifiable information to only those employees who need access to perform a specific job. All employees are kept up-to-date on our security and privacy practices.
We do not use “persistent” cookies to collect permanent information (note: a cookie file contains unique information a website can use to track such things as passwords, lists of pages you’ve visited, and the date when you last looked at a specific page, or to identify your session at a particular website. A cookie is often used in commercial sites to identify the items selected for a specific shopping cart application.). We use “nonpersistent” cookies in applications that keep track of a user and make it possible for you to complete a form or use a function, but this cookie disappears when you finish filling out an application or searching a database.
Control of Personal Information
At any time while accessing our website and app, any user while online may decline participation in any activity that asks for information. Your choice not to participate will in no way affect your ability to use any other feature on our website and app. We offer you the permanent option to unsubscribe from any and all “e-inform” mail lists maintained for our service. Users may at any time choose to remove themselves from any list.
The Gerald Desmond Bridge Replacement Project does not solicit information from minors or seek to determine whether the visitor is a minor. Consequently, visitors should be aware that the collection of personal information requested from or volunteered by children online or by email will be treated in the same manner as information given by an adult. This information may become a public record, and as such, may be subject to public access. We ask that parents guide their children when children are asked to provide personal information online.
While the Gerald Desmond Bridge Replacement Project attempts to maintain current data throughout its website and app, we regret that this may not always be possible. Neither the Gerald Desmond Bridge Replacement Project, nor any agency, officer, nor employee of the Gerald Desmond Bridge Replacement Project warrants the accuracy, reliability, or timeliness of any information published on this system, nor endorses any content, viewpoint, products, or services linked from this system and shall not be held liable for any losses caused by reliance on the accuracy, reliability, or timeliness of such information. Portions of such information may be incorrect, or not current. Any person or entity that relies on any information obtained from this system does so at his or her own risk.
