As a matter of principle, we do not collect, use or disclose any information about our users without their knowledge and approval. Under no circumstance do we share user information with third parties.

Information Submitted to
Town of Monroe Web Site

The Town of Monroe web site does not retain personally identifiable information about you when you visit our web site unless you choose to provide such information to us (i.e. sending an e-mail, participating in a survey, responding to a feedback or "contact us" form, etc.)

We consider any information that could reasonably be used to identify you as "personally identifying information." This includes, but is not limited to:

  • Your name
  • Your address
  • Your telephone number
  • Your e-mail address

Town of Monroe government agencies may request personally identifiable information from you in order to provide requested services, but such information is handled as it would be on an in-person visit to that same agency.

If personal information is requested on the web site or volunteered by the user, state and federal law may protect it. However, this information is a public record once you provide it, and may be subject to public inspection and copying if not protected by state or federal law.

We do not use cookies to retain information on the Town of Monroe web site. A cookie is a text file, not a program, which is sent to your computer when you access a site. Cookies do not disclose your name or e-mail address to a web site. They can only tell a web site if you have visited before.

Visitors should be aware that the Town of Monroe could be required to disclose personal information in response to valid legal process, such as a search warrant, subpoena, or court order, pursuant to the Connecticut Freedom of Information Act. All record keepers face the possibility that disclosure of their records may be compelled in some civil, criminal, or administrative matters. Disclosures may also be necessary to protect the Town’s legal rights or during emergencies if physical safety is believed to be at risk. We think that these events are unlikely, but they are possible.
