Internet Privacy & Security Policy
The goal of the City of Wichita is to ensure that doing business with the City electronically will create efficiencies and be as safe and trustworthy as doing business in the traditional "paper-based" format.
The City of Wichita's policy is to respect and protect the privacy of our citizens and business partners. The City of Wichita will not disclose your personal information to third parties without having obtained your consent. However, the City of Wichita may disclose such information in special cases when we have reason to believe that such disclosure is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against someone who may be causing injury to or interference with (either intentionally or unintentionally) the City of Wichita's rights or property, the rights of other citizens or business partners, or anyone else that could be harmed by such activities. The City of Wichita may disclose user information when we believe in good faith that the law requires such action.
For site security purposes and to ensure that this service remains available to all users, this government computer system employs commercial software programs to monitor network traffic, which shall identify unauthorized attempts to upload or change information, or otherwise cause damage.
Except for authorized law enforcement investigations, no other attempts are made to identify individual users or their usage habits.
Unauthorized attempts to upload information or change information on this service are strictly prohibited and may be punishable under the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act of 1986 and the National Information Infrastructure Protection Act.
In certain instances, you will have the opportunity to receive or create a password to access, store or submit personal information. Your City of Wichita account is password-protected so that only you can access it, use it, and view information relevant to your account. We recommend that you make your password easy to remember but difficult to guess and never divulge this information to anyone. The City of Wichita will never ask you for your password in an unsolicited phone call or email. Ultimately, you are responsible for maintaining the secrecy of your passwords and any account information. Remember to sign out of your account and close your browser window when you have finished your work. This is to ensure that others cannot access your personal and/or transaction information.
The City of Wichita exercises great care and follows industry "best practices" in providing secure transmission of information from your PC to our servers and the storage of personal information on our servers, should you choose to store such information in your account. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet or data storage can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal and proprietary information to the greatest possible degree, the City of Wichita cannot fully ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us, and you do so at your own risk. Our systems will always use the current industry-standard encryption (SSL - Secure Socket Layer) for transmission and industry-standard protocols for data storage.
