ACCURACY, CHANGES AND CONTINUITY OF SERVICE.
Utah County Government (the County) tries to ensure that the information made available on the County's website is accurate and complete. Due to factors beyond the control of the County, however, it cannot guarantee against unauthorized modification of information or errors made in inputting and posting data. The County may make changes to a web page at any time to update, add or correct the information made available. The County may elect to charge a fee for accessing or using information from the County's computer system, or may suspend or discontinue making the information available.
- NO WARRANTIES.
The County disclaims any express or implied warranties related to making its computer system available for public use, and for any materials, information, graphics, products, or processes contained within its computer system. It makes no warranty, express or implied, nor assumes any responsibility for the use of information on the County's website or computer system, or for the computer system's fitness for any general or particular purpose. Nor does the County warrant that the use of information on the County's system will not infringe or violate the rights of others. The public is granted access to information on the County's computer system on a strictly "as is" basis. The County denies responsibility for the conduct of its users.
- EXTERNAL LINKS; PERSONAL OPINIONS.
County computer resources and materials may contain hypertext or other links to external Internet sites. These are provided only for your convenience. Any information, materials, personal opinions, or endorsements of products or services appearing on external sites are not controlled, sponsored, or approved by the County. The County disclaims legal responsibility for any information, materials or services made available on external sites, and for the personal opinions of individuals posted on any site, regardless of whether the County operates the site, unless the personal opinions are official opinions issued by members of Utah County government. No other sections of this disclaimer statement are applicable to external sites beyond the control of the County.
Due to the volume of requests for external links, the Utah County Health Department generally does not accept link requests except from local nonprofit or public agencies or our state and federal partners. Acceptance/posting of an external link does not imply endorsement.

The County has made the content of certain pages of its website available to the public. Anyone may view, copy or distribute information found within these web pages (not including the design or layout of the pages or any images thereon) for personal or informational use without owing an obligation to the County if the documents are not modified in any respect, and unless otherwise stated on the particular materials or information to which a restriction on free use applies. The County makes no warranty, however, that the materials contained within these pages are free from copyright claims, or other restrictions or limitations on free use or display. The County disclaims any liability for the improper or incorrect use of information obtained from its website.

One who uses the information available for public use on the County's computer system assumes the risk of using or relying on such information. Neither the County, its employees nor its agents shall be liable for any damages, including indirect, special, incidental, or consequential damages a user incurs as a result of viewing, distributing or copying materials on the sites made available to the public, even if advised of the possibility of such damages.
MONITORING AND PROTECTING THE SYSTEM FROM INTRUSION
All County computer systems are subject to monitoring to assure proper functioning of the system and to provide security for the computer system's operation. By using the computer systems you are consenting to the exercise of such monitoring practices. The County reserves the right to use any legally appropriate measures to prevent and investigate anyone attempting to modify, deface, delete or otherwise tamper with or abuse a County website, server, database, information system or other County technology asset.
LAW AND JURISDICTION.
The materials made available for public use on the County's website are from computer systems located within the County, and are for the use and benefit of the citizens of Utah and Utah County. Any person who uses these systems or attempts to gain access to information or materials on these systems is subject to the jurisdiction of the County and/or the State of Utah. Any dispute arising from a person using or attempting to use information or materials on the County's website shall be determined in accordance with Utah County laws and any applicable Utah laws and in the courts of Utah.
The purpose of the statement is to inform users of this site with regard to the collection and use of personally identifiable information.
DEFINITION OF PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION
For the purposes of this statement "personally identifiable information" means any information relating to an identified or identifiable individual who is the subject of the information.
PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION NOT ROUTINELY COLLECTED
Citizens do not have to routinely provide personal information to visit Utah County sites or to download information. Government agencies may request personally identifiable information from you in order to provide requested specialized services, but such information is handled as it would be on an in-person visit to a government office.
- PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION AVAILABLE FROM GOVERNMENTAL WEB SITES
Access to personally identifiable information in public records at state and local levels of government in Utah is controlled primarily by Chapter 2, Title 63 of the Utah Code, entitled the Government Records Access and Management Act. Information that is generally available under Chapter 2 - and not made confidential elsewhere in the Utah Code - may be posted for electronic access through UtahCountyOnline.org. While Chapter 2 sets the general policies for access to government records in the state of Utah, other sections of the Utah Code as well as other federal laws also deal with confidentiality issues.
The IP (Internet Protocol) numbers of computers (servers) used to visit this site are noted as part of our statistical analysis on use of our website so we may better design services and improve access to them. However, the site does not attempt to gain personally identifiable information on individual users and associate them with IP addresses.
USE OF CONSTITUENT E-MAIL ADDRESSES
E-mail addresses obtained as a result of a request to the County site will not be sold nor given to private companies for marketing purposes. The information collected is subject to the access and confidentiality provisions of Chapter 2, other applicable sections of the Utah Code or federal law. E-mail or other information requests sent to the County website may be maintained in order to respond to the request, forward that request to the appropriate agency, communicate updates to the County page that may be of interest to citizens, or to provide the County web designer with valuable customer feedback to assist in improving the site.
- NON COUNTY WEB SITES
Various websites may be linked through UtahCountyOnline.org. Many of these sites, including private sector sites, are not subject to Chapter 2 and may also not be subject to other sections of the Utah Code or federal law. Visitors to those sites are advised to check the privacy statements of those sites and be cautious about providing personally identifiable information without a clear understanding of how the information will be used. Visitors may also want to consult privacy guidelines such as those recommended by the Online Privacy Alliance.
All reasonable efforts will be made by the Utah County Government to accommodate special needs of individuals as addressed by the Americans with Disabilities Act.
