Information Collected & How it is Used
Automatic Collection of Information
If you do nothing during your visit to this website but browse, read pages or download information, this website gathers and stores certain information about your visit. This information does not identify you personally. The Puget Sound REV Collaborative automatically collects and stores the following information about your visit:
The Internet Protocol (IP) Address and domain name used.
The date and time of each visit.
The web pages and directories visited.
The information we collect automatically is used only to help us understand how our website is being used in order to improve the content and services provided.
This website uses “cookies” to customize your browsing experience on this website. Cookies are simple text files stored on your computer by your web browser.
If during your visit to this website you participate in a survey, send an e-mail, or perform some other transaction online, the following additional information will be collected:
The email address and contents of email, including attachments. The information collected is not limited to text and may include any audio, video, and graphic information you send.
Information volunteered in response to a survey.
Information volunteered through an online form for any other purpose.
We use your email information to respond appropriately. This may be to respond to you, to address issues you may identify, to further improve our website or to forward the email for appropriate action. Survey information and information from other online forms is used only for the purpose stated on the requesting web page. We will not sell, rent, or lease your personal information to third parties.
Personal Information and Choice
You may choose whether to provide personal information online.
“Personal information” is information about a natural person that is readily identifiable to that specific individual. Personal information includes such things as an individual’s name, address and phone number. A domain name or Internet Protocol address is not considered personal information.
We collect no personal information about you unless you voluntarily provide it by sending an e-mail, participating in a survey, or completing an online form. You may choose not to contact us by e-mail, participate in a survey or to provide any personal information using an online form. Your choice to not participate in these activities will not impair your ability to browse this website and read or download any information provided on the site.
If personal information is requested on the website or volunteered by the user, state law and the federal Privacy Act of 1974 may protect it. However, this information is a public record once you provide it, and may be subject to public inspection and copying if not protected by federal or state law.
If you believe that your personal information is being used for a purpose other than what was intended when submitted, you may contact the appropriate PSCAA and PSRC staff noted in links at the end of this statement.
Users are cautioned that the collection of personal information requested from or volunteered by children online or by e-mail will be treated the same as information given by an adult, and may be subject to public access.
Public Access to Information
In the state of Washington, laws exist to ensure that government is open and that the public has a right to access appropriate records and information possessed by state government. At the same time, there are exceptions to the public’s right to access public records that serve various needs including the privacy of individuals. Exceptions are provided by both state and federal laws.
All of the information collected at this site becomes public records that may be subject to inspection and copying by members of the public, unless an exemption in law exists. RCW 42.56.070(1) states, “Each agency, in accordance with published rules, shall make available for public inspection and copying all public records, unless the record falls within the specific exemptions of subsection (6) of this section, this chapter, or other statute which exempts or prohibits disclosure of specific information or records. To the extent required to prevent an unreasonable invasion of personal privacy interests protected by this chapter, an agency shall delete identifying details in a manner consistent with this chapter when it makes available or publishes any public record; however, in each case, the justification for the deletion shall be explained fully in writing.”
In the event of a conflict between this Privacy Notice and the Public Records Act or other law governing the agency’s disclosure of records, the Public Records Act or other applicable law will control.
Review and Correction of Personally Identifiable Information
You can review any personally identifiable information we collect about you by using the information in the Contact Information section at the end of this notice. You may recommend changes to your personally identifiable information you believe to be inaccurate by submitting an email or written request that credibly shows the inaccuracy. We will take reasonable steps to verify your identity before granting access or making corrections. (See RCW 43.105.310.)
