Our Philosophy
We are committed to providing you with a convenient and secure online e-government experience. We understand that you have entrusted us with your personal information, and we take very seriously the need to protect that information.

In order to protect your privacy, we will not share any of your personal information with any third party, except (1) in an aggregated, summary form; (2) to fulfill governmental, legal and regulatory obligations (including your obligations under the Terms and Conditions); (3) to process your transactions on this website; or (4) pursuant to your explicit authorization.

We believe that the information collected from citizens should only be that which is necessary to provide the information or services sought by a requester, just as a person might provide such information when visiting our offices in person. The information collected is subject to the same controls and uses as that collected by governmental offices visited in person, again subject to the access and confidentiality provisions of Colorado and Town of Mancos laws and federal law.

What is personally identifiable information?
“Personally identifiable information” or “personal information” means any information relating to an identified or identifiable individual who is the subject of the information. You do not have to provide personally identifiable information. Users do not have to provide personally identifiable information to visit the Town of Mancos website or to download information. We may in the future request personally identifiable information from you in order to provide requested specialized services, but such information would be handled as it would be on an in-person visit to a Town office
Access to Personal Information
The Town of Mancos has information about individuals, or information which can be identified or associated with a particular individual retained in the public records. Access to this personally identifiable information in public records at state and local levels of government in Colorado is controlled by Colorado law. Information that is generally available under Colorado law and not made confidential elsewhere under Colorado, Town of Mancos, or federal law may be posted for electronic access through the Town of Mancos website. Colorado law recognizes many concerns people have with regard to public records that include information about them, including the right to correct inaccurate information. Consequently, persons concerned with regard to information about them should contact the custodian of the record, which typically is the state agency or other governmental entity that collects and maintains the information.

Public Disclosure
All information collected on our website will be treated the same as any written communication and is subject to the confidentiality and public disclosure provisions of applicable Colorado, Town of Mancos laws and federal law.

Email Senders
Email messages sent to any Town of Mancos address will be treated the same as any other written communication. Email addresses obtained as a result of a request to our website will not be sold or given to private companies for marketing purposes. The information collected from your email message is subject to the disclosure, access and confidentiality provisions of Colorado, Town of Mancos, and federal law. Email or other information requests sent to our website may be maintained in order to respond to the request, forward that request to the appropriate department, communicate updates to the page that may be of interest to citizens, or provide our web designers and contributors with valuable customer feedback to assist in improving the site.

Electronic Form Filers
Any other information provided by you at the request of the Town of Mancos, or an agency thereof, such as the completion and electronic filing of a form, will be considered to be voluntarily provided by the visitor and will be treated in the same manner as information provided in written form or in person during a visit to the agency.

We are committed to data security and the data quality of personally identifiable information that is either available from or collected by our website. Unfortunately, no information transmitted via the Internet is guaranteed to be completely secure due to the nature of the Internet. But we attempt to safeguard your information from loss, misuse or alteration.

To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the appropriate use of information, we have instituted physical, electronic and managerial procedures to protect your personal information. For example, only certain authorized Town of Mancos personnel have access to your personal information, and this information is password protected. We also use firewalls and Secure Socket Layers, where appropriate. We may use intrusion detection systems to guard against unauthorized access.

Links to other websites
Various external websites may be linked to on our website. Visitors to those sites may wish to check their privacy statements and be cautious about providing personally identifiable information. A link does not constitute an endorsement of content, viewpoint, policies, products or services of that website. Once you follow a link to another website not maintained by the Town of Mancos, you are subject to the terms and conditions of that website, including but not limited to its privacy policy.

Information Disclaimer
Information provided on the Town of Mancos website is intended to allow the public immediate access to public information. While all attempts are made to provide accurate, current and reliable information we recognize the possibility of human and/or mechanical error. Therefore, the Town of Mancos, its employees, officers, and agencies, expressly deny any warranty of the accuracy, reliability or timeliness of any information published by this system and shall not be held liable for any losses caused by reliance upon the accuracy, reliability or timeliness of such information. Any person who relies upon such information obtained from this system does so at his or her own risk.

Changes to our Privacy Policy
We may change our privacy policy from time to time. It is the user’s responsibility to periodically check back for amendments to our privacy statement.
