Privacy and Security

As a local public body, the Town of Blackfalds is subject to the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act (FOIP). We value our residents and visitors and take personal privacy seriously. In the course of providing products and services, we may collect personal information that we understand may be considered private or confidential. We are therefore providing this Privacy and Security Statement to explain our commitment to privacy, outlining our practices and policies for collecting, using and sharing information collected.

Generally, users can browse through our secure website without giving any personal information. If you request access to online services, or if you provide us with your personal information in an email, this Privacy and Security Statement describes how and when we collect your personal information and how we use it. We do not automatically gather any personal information from you, such as your name, phone number, email or address. This information is only obtained if you supply it voluntarily, usually through contacting us via e-mail, or registering in a secure portion of the site.

We developed this Privacy and Security Statement to be transparent about information we collect and how we use it when you either visit the Town of Blackfalds website or register for an online service or program.
