Commitment to Privacy
Santa Clara Police Department (SCPD) has created this privacy statement in order to demonstrate SCPD's firm commitment to privacy. The following information explains our policy regarding any personal information you may supply to us when visiting the domain.

SCPD's goal in collecting personal information online is to provide you with the most personalized and effective service possible. By understanding your needs and preferences, SCPD will be in the better position to provide you with improved service. Our goal is to protect your online information in the same manner that we protect citizen and business information obtained through other means. 

Email Address
On certain occasions, we may request your e-mail address for purposes of correspondence or for City business. SCPD will not share e-mail addresses with anyone outside SCPD or disclose user information to any third party, unless under a court order, including but not limited to the California Public Records Act.

Log Files
SCPD does not release any information about the collection of IP addresses to any third party except under court order. SCPD's website archives web server log files in order to create aggregate statistical reports, detect errors at the website, and implement security protocols. Aggregate reports about website visitors are generated. These reports do not contain any personally identifiable information. The web log files are eventually deleted.

Direct Mail
In the future, SCPD may use the personal data provided online to send you information about SCPD services and upcoming civic activities. We will neither sell nor provide your personal information for any other direct mail activities, unless under court order. 

To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the correct use of information, we have put in place appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online.
