Website Privacy Policy

The City of New Berlin maintains this website to provide information and service to the public. In order to operate this website, we collect certain information about the use of the site. We also allow users to send email and submit other information to the City. The purpose of this privacy policy is to let you know what information is collected, why it is collected, how it is used, and the extent to which the information may be disclosed to third parties.

What information does the website collect and how do we use the information?

The website does not collect any personally identifiable information from you without your knowledge. We only collect personally identifiable information if you choose to identify yourself by sending email or submitting information to the City through one of the forms available on this site.

This site does not send "cookies" to your computer, nor does it place or read any "third-party cookies" on your computer.

When you visit this website to browse or download information or link to another website, our server will collect a small amount of basic information in log files that enables us to identify operational problems and correct them. The information collected includes your browser type (e.g., Netscape Navigator, Microsoft Internet Explorer), your operating system (e.g., Microsoft Windows, Mac OS, Linux), and your IP Address (a unique number assigned to a computer when the computer accesses the Internet). The City monitors this information to ensure that the website is available for access to all users and to identify unauthorized attempts to use or alter or otherwise damage the website. We do not permanently store this information. This information is automatically deleted on a periodic basis.

Will we share any personally identifiable information with other people or agencies?

If you choose to submit other information by filling out a form that is on the City website, we will use the information for the purpose specified in the form. We may share the information that you submit with other governmental agencies, if doing so will assist us in responding to your inquiry or submission.

What is the effect of Wisconsin's Public Records Laws regarding any information I submit?

Except as discussed above, the City will not disclose any information that you submit, unless we are required to do so by law. You should be aware that Emails and other information that you send will become public records when submitted to the City. In most circumstances, the City is required to disclose that information in response to a public records request or a court order.

How secure is the information that I send to the City through this website?

Any personally identifiable information obtained by or through this website is maintained on separate computers by the City, protected from public access via the Internet. It is only available to the public, in any form, when appropriate for release pursuant to the Wisconsin Public Records Law.

What privacy policy applies when I link from the City website to another site?

The City privacy policy applies only when you are on the City website. When you link from the City website to another website, the City privacy policy no longer applies; you are subject to the privacy policy of the other site.

What if this policy changes?

The City will not implement any change to this privacy policy without first posting the changes on this website at least thirty (30) days in advance of making the change (unless otherwise required by law). If a change to this privacy policy is implemented, any information collected prior to the change will continue to be covered by this current policy (unless otherwise required by law).
