If You Send Us Personal Information
The security of the personal information you provide to the Town of Blacksburg is very important to us. If you choose to provide us with personal information, such as an email or by filling out a form and submitting it to us through our website, we use that information to respond to your message and to help us get you the information you have requested. We treat emails the same way we treat letters sent to us, we do not collect personal information for any other reason than to respond to you. We only share the information you give us with another government agency if your inquiry relates to that agency, or as otherwise required by law.
Security and Links
The Town of Blacksburg site includes links to other sites, and when you choose to visit those sites, we are not responsible for their privacy policies or how they treat user information. We may permit third parties to offer registration-based services through our site. We are not responsible for the actions and policies of these third parties, and you should review the privacy policies of these parties when supplying personally identifiable information to them.
We at the Town of Blacksburg are especially concerned about protecting children’s privacy. We hope parents and teachers are involved in children’s Internet explorations. Our page for kids encourages children to email ideas to us, however providing personal information is entirely optional. We ask that children get their parents’ or guardian’s permission before providing any information online, at our site or any other site, and hope parents will always be involved in those decisions. Most importantly, when children do provide information through our web site, it is only used to enable us to respond to that specific request.
