Use of Digital Cookies
This site also contains links to other sites. The Town of Loxley is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of other websites, except those under the jurisdiction of the Town of Loxley.
In order to better service the needs of those who visit our site, the Town of Loxley keeps track of certain traffic data. These include the platform used (such as a Macintosh or PC), browser type (such as Chrome or Firefox), IP address (or Internet Protocol address, which identifies the visitor’s service provider, but not the visitor personally) and the previous URL (Uniform Resource Locator, or Web address) visited by the visitor before clicking through to Town of Loxley. None of these disclose personal information, and the information they do reveal is used exclusively for internal administrative purposes.
The Town of Loxley also uses the Web to promote city events and services. In some cases, personal information may be requested. Once again, this information will not be shared with any third parties without the user’s consent.
When an order is placed online, the Town of Loxley scrambles personal data and credit card information using SSL encryption technology. This makes it virtually impossible for information to be stolen or intercepted while being transferred across the Internet. We treat customer information given to us online with the same confidentiality that we do with customer records on paper and with information taken over the phone by Town of Loxley customer service representatives. Upon receipt, orders are encrypted until processed.
However, no technology is fail-proof. It is possible — even if remote — for an unauthorized person to gain access to this information despite the safeguard of a secure server. Consequently, visitors using forms on our site do so at their own risk.
Information that could be collected from or for a minor includes but might not be limited to name, address, telephone number, e-mail address, school, and hobbies.
Parental (including legal guardian) Consent
Parental consent will be obtained before collecting, using or disclosing personal information about a child.
If any information practices change in a “material” way, new consent will be obtained from the parents. This includes changes in the kinds of material being collected, a change in how that information is being used, or if there is a change in the third parties that have access to that information.
Parents will be able to review the personal information collected from their children. This will require verification of the identity of the requesting parent.
Parents will be allowed to revoke their consent and delete information collected from or for their children on request. When consent is revoked, the web site will stop collecting, using or disclosing information from or for that child. Revocation may end a child’s participation in an activity if the information collected was necessary for participation on the web site.
Additional information can be obtained at the FTC’s Consumer Response Center.
