Collection and Use of Information
Baytown.org does not sell or rent personally identifiable information. Please be aware that when you provide information to any government entity, however, that information may be subject to the Texas Public Information Act and applicable federal legislation. Information about the Texas Public Information Act is available from the Office of the Attorney General (PDF). Each governmental body must be contacted directly about the records they keep and their use of personally identifiable information.
The Baytown.org Web site utilizes server logs and log analysis tools to create summary statistics about the use of the Web site. The summary statistics are used for purposes such as assessing what information is of most interest to users, determining technical design specifications, and identifying system performance or problem areas.
For online government transactions conducted on the Baytown.org Web site, you will be asked to enter certain information about yourself and/or the organization with which you are affiliated. The specifics of this information will vary as required by the type of transaction and the governmental body involved. In each case, the information requested will include the same information that would be requested if you performed the identical transaction in person rather than online. Whenever personal information is requested from you on this site, there will be an indication of whether your disclosure of such information is mandatory or optional. Information collected in the course of the transaction is used for the following purposes:
- To conduct online transactions with the appropriate government entities (e.g., the renewal of a license or permit).
- To send you an e-mail confirming your transaction.
- To forward new product announcements or content features to you, only if you have chosen to request this service.
Baytown.org may be required by law enforcement or judicial authorities to provide personally identifiable information to the appropriate governmental authorities. We reserve the right to report to law enforcement agencies any activities that we in good faith believe to be unlawful.
We limit employee access to personally identifiable information to only those employees who need access to perform a specific job. All employees are kept up-to-date on our security and privacy practices.
This site uses JPMorgan Chase Pay Connexion (https://www.chase.com/resources/consumer-privacy ) and Tyler Technologies ( https://www.municipalonlinepayments.com/baytowntx/terms ) for processing online payments. Please view the Terms and Conditions, and Privacy statements of those providers.
