This privacy policy applies only to the official City of Lee’s Summit web site (cityofls.net) and to third-party sites that provide Internet related-services for the City of Lee’s Summit under contract. When you follow a link to any other web site, even the site of another governmental agency, you are subject to the privacy policy of that site.

This policy may be updated periodically without notice, so please check back from time to time.

Automatic Collection of Information

Visitors who request services through this site may be required to furnish additional information in order to provide the service requested. The additional information collected will be no more specific than if the visitor were requesting the service by any other means, including by telephone or an in-person visit to a city facility. We will only share this information with another government agency or organization if that is required to provide the help you are requesting.

Security of Your Personal Information

Every effort is made to protect any sensitive personal information you give us. This site uses a secure server for conducting online financial transactions. All credit card and other payment information you transmit to us will be protected by encryption technology, provided that your browser is properly configured and your computer is operating properly. The encrypted information is shared only with our bank and a credit card clearinghouse, both of which also operate secured servers. Access to these records is limited to employees who are responsible for processing the payment related transactions for the specific services you have requested.

We will not rent, sell or give away any information identifying you individually (name, address, phone number, etc.) to third parties for marketing or mailing lists. We will also not disclose credit card information, except for purposes related to the specific transaction with your permission, or as required by law.
