Web Site Policies
The City of Sparks has developed and established policies that balance an individual's right to privacy with the public's right to access government records under the State of Nevada and Federal Laws.
City of Sparks (City) policies exist to ensure that government is open and that the public has a right to access appropriate data and information in possession by the City government. At the same time, there are exceptions to the disclosure of data and information provided by City policies, and State and Federal laws. These exceptions include the privacy of individuals.
During your visit to the City's website, information that is not readily identifiable to an individual (non-personal in nature) may be automatically collected and stored.
Only personal information that is voluntarily provided, through such activities as sending an e-mail or submitting an online form, may be collected. If you choose not to participate in these activities, your choice will in no way affect your ability to use any other feature of the City's website.
We strive to protect personally identifiable information by collecting only information necessary to deliver our services. All information that may be collected at this site becomes public record that may be subject to inspection and copying by the public, unless an exemption in law exists. For instance, if personal information is requested or volunteered, City and Nevada rules and regulations or the Federal Privacy Act of 1974 may protect it from disclosure.
