In addition, our Web servers may use "cookies" (described below) to collect information about visitors such as domain names, but not your e-mail addresses. This information may be aggregated to measure such things as the number of visits, average time spent on the site, number of pages viewed, and methods by which our site was found. The Town of Three Lakes uses such information to evaluate the use of our site and to continuously improve the content and services being provided.

At times we may ask you for contact information or conduct on-line surveys in order to better understand your needs so that we can provide you with a customized experience. If we wish to use this information other than as set forth in this statement, we will let you know at the time of collection. We will take reasonable steps to safeguard this information from unauthorized access.

When you send us e-mail, or register to receive news or information alerts, we will ask you to provide individually-identifiable information to us. Except as otherwise provided below under the heading "Who Has Access to This Information?", when you supply information about yourself for a specific purpose, we use the information for that purpose and to manage the internal operations and security of our Web site consistent with the terms of use established from time to time governing this site. Such purpose may involve the disclosure of such information to affiliated governmental bodies where necessary to and for the limited purpose of processing your request, processing a transaction authorized by you or providing you with requested services.
