This information does not identify you personally. We automatically collect and store the following types of information about your visit:

If you choose to provide us with personal information (for example, you send an e-mail to a Township employee), or you fill out a form with your personal information in it and submit it to us through this web site, we will use that information to respond to your e-mail and to help us get you the information you requested. We will only share that information with another governmental agency if your inquiry requires us to contact that agency to provide an answer to your inquiry. We do not create individual profiles with the information you provide nor will we give it to any private organizations.

B. Personally Identifiable Information (PII) and Choice
You may choose whether to provide personally identifiable information on-line.
"Personally identifiable information" (PII) is information about a natural person that is readily identifiable to that specific individual. PII includes such things as an individual's name, address, and phone number. A domain name or IP address is not considered personally identifiable information.
We collect no PII about you unless you voluntarily provide it to us by sending us e-mail, participating in a survey, or completing an on-line form. You may choose not to contact us by e-mail, participate in a survey, or provide any PII using an on-line form. Your choice not to participate in these activities will not impair your browsing of the Township of Morris web site, nor will it preclude you from reading or downloading any information provided on our web site.
E-mail is not a secure medium. Personally identifiable information sent via the Internet can be intercepted. You may, therefore, wish to reconsider the advisability of sending messages that contain sensitive, personal information to e-mail addresses on this web site.
The Township of Morris has no intention of releasing 'personal information' sent to us voluntarily, but may be required to do so pursuant to a request under the Right to Know law, the common law Right to Know, the Open Public Records Act, or other State or Federal law or pursuant to court order.
If you believe that your personal information is being used for a purpose other than what was intended when submitted, you may contact the Township Administrator of the Township of Morris.
The Township of Morris is especially concerned about protecting children's privacy. We hope parents and teachers are involved in children's Internet explorations. It is particularly important for parents to guide their children when children are asked to provide personal information on-line. The Township of Morris web site pages for children do not ask children to provide any information to us.
C. Public Access to Information
In the State of New Jersey, laws exist to ensure that government is open and that the public has a right to access appropriate records and information possessed by state or local government agencies. At the same time, there are exceptions to the public's right to access public records that serve various needs including the privacy of individuals. Exceptions are provided in both State and Federal laws.
All the information collected at this site becomes public record that may be subject to inspection and copying by members of the public, unless an exemption in law exists.
