USER TRACKING AND DATA CAPTURE PRACTICES

In general, the Court web site collects and aggregates user information regarding the use of our web sites and web pages.  Statistical and other analysis of this information is conducted for the purpose of helping the Court improve the information on and services through its web sites. Among other things, the Court may collect and record domain names and/or IP addresses. This tells us what services are used by distinct users, but does not tell us the individual identities of the users.

A cookie is a small amount of data which often includes an anonymous unique identifier, which is sent to your browser from a web site’s computers and stored on your computer’s hard drive. The data stored in these cookies is read by the Court web site for the purposes stated above. You can set your web browser to notify you when you receive a cookie, giving you the chance to decide whether or not to accept it. Some services and functionality on the Court web site may be impaired, if you decline to accept cookies.

CONFIDENTIALITY AND DATA SECURITY

We want our site visitors to feel confident about using the Court web site and, therefore, are committed to protecting the information we collect.

Unless required by law, the Court will not transfer, sell, or otherwise make available to third parties information about, related to, or provided by users of its web site, including email and mailing addresses.

We limit access to personal information about our users to those Court personnel for whom we believe such access to be appropriate in light of the functions and responsibilities of their jobs. We have physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards to protect your personal information that is stored in our systems from unauthorized access. Our systems are configured with full 128-bit SSL-based data encryption or scrambling technologies and with firewalls to help protect confidential information.

It is crucial that, as a user, you protect against unauthorized access to your password and to your computer and that you always sign off when finished using a shared computer. Further, you should be aware that no system is impenetrable. Neither the Court nor any other governmental agency, entity or body nor any vendor or service provider associated with any of our online efforts will be liable for any loss or damage relating to information provided by the website.
