Petaluma City Schools makes every effort to secure the personally identifiable information you provide on computer servers in a controlled, secure environment, protected from unauthorized access, use or disclosure.

    Use of your Personal Information

    Petaluma City Schools collects and uses your personal information to operate the Petaluma City Schools website and deliver the services you have requested. Petaluma City Schools also uses your personally identifiable information to inform you of other products or services available from Petaluma City Schools and its affiliates. Petaluma City Schools may also contact you via surveys to conduct research about your opinion of current services or of potential new services that may be offered.

    Petaluma City Schools will disclose your personal information, without notice, only if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to: (a) conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on Petaluma City Schools or the website; (b) protect and defend the rights or property of Petaluma City Schools; and, (c) act under exigent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of Petaluma City Schools, or the public.


    Use of Cookies

    The Petaluma City Schools websites use "cookies" to help you personalize your online experience. A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by a Web page server. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you, and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you.

    One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. The purpose of a cookie is to tell the Web server that you have returned to a specific page. For example, if you personalize Petaluma City Schools pages, or register with Petaluma City Schools site or services, a cookie helps Petaluma City Schools to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of recording your personal information, such as billing addresses, shipping addresses, and so on. When you return to the same Petaluma City Schools website, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the Petaluma City Schools features that you customized.

    You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most Web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of the Petaluma City Schools services or Web sites you visit.


    Changes to this Statement

    Petaluma City Schools will occasionally update this Statement of Privacy to reflect company and customer feedback. Petaluma City Schools encourages you to periodically review this Statement to be informed of how Petaluma City Schools is protecting your information.
