Collecting & Using Personal Information
Welcome to City of New Bern’s websites. We appreciate your interest in us. When you visit and navigate our sites and when you communicate with us via our sites, we will not collect personal information about you unless you provide us that information voluntarily. Any non-public personal information that you may provide via our sites will be used solely for the purpose stated on the page where it is collected. The City of New Bern will not sell, license, transmit or disclose this information outside of the City.

By “personal information,” we mean data that is unique to an individual, such as a name, address, email address, or telephone number. From time to time, we may request personal information from you at our site to deliver requested materials to you, respond to your questions, or deliver a product or service.

Your Email
We welcome your comments or questions about our websites and have provided email boxes for that purpose. We will share your comments and questions with our staff and those employees most capable of addressing your questions and concerns.

Please note that your email, like most, if not all, non-encrypted internet email communications, may be accessed and viewed by other internet users, without your knowledge and permission, while in transit to us. For that reason, to protect your privacy, please do not use email to communicate information to us that you consider confidential. If you wish, you may contact us instead via non-cellular telephone at the numbers provided at various locations and pages on our sites.

Linking to Other Sites
From time to time, the City of New Bern's websites may provide links to other websites, not owned or controlled by the City, that we think might be useful or of interest to you. We cannot, however, be responsible for the privacy practices used by other website owners or the content or accuracy of those other websites. Links to various non-City websites do not constitute or imply endorsement by the City of these websites, any products or services described on these sites, or of any other material contained in them.

Security
The City of New Bern has adopted and adheres to stringent security standards designed to protect non-public personal information against accidental or unauthorized access or disclosure. Among the safeguards that the City has developed for this site are administrative, physical and technical barriers that together form a protective firewall around the information stored at this site. We periodically subject our site to simulated intrusion tests and have developed comprehensive disaster recovery plans.
