Privacy Policy/Terms of Use

Welcome to Specific Plan Amendment Study web site. Your privacy is one of our top priorities. The following policy applies only to the use of the web site. Other web sites operated by state agencies have different policies. We strongly suggest that you read the privacy policy for this web site and any external site that you visit through a link appearing at this site.

Public Comments and Comment Periods. Members of the public who wish to submit official comments on particular rulemaking initiatives must submit comments during the official comment period and through official channels, not on LAX related Facebook and/or Twitter pages. Public commented made on LAX related Facebook and/or Twitter pages will not be included in the study.

Personally Identifiable Information. We use the term “personally identifiable information” to mean any information that could reasonably be used to identify you, including your name, address, e-mail address, Social Security number, birth date, bank account information, credit card information, or any combination of information that could be used to identify you.

Information Voluntarily Provided by You. This site collects voluntary information from you only through the e-mails and forms that you send through this site. E-mails sent by you to this site will contain personally identifiable information.

Information Automatically Collected and Stored by this Site. This site does not collect “cookies”, but does collect and store indefinitely your Internet Protocol (“IP”) address, which does not identify you as an individual, as well as information about the date and time of your visit, whether a file you have requested exists, and how many “bytes” of information were transmitted to you over the web from this site. We use your IP address to assess the frequency of visits to this site and the popularity of its various pages and functions. We will not attempt to match any personally identifiable information that you provide to us with your IP address, unless there are reasonable grounds to believe that doing so would provide information that is relevant and material to a criminal investigation.

Dissemination of Your Personally Identifiable Information. We do not sell any personally identifiable information collected through this web site.

In addition, the information that you voluntarily submit will be disclosed only to Specific Plan Amendment Study employees or officials with a “need to know” for purposes of fulfilling their job responsibilities. They will only use the information to answer your questions, respond to any requests for assistance, and fulfill Specific Plan Amendment Study team legal obligations. Where appropriate, we may provide the information submitted by you to the person or company that is the subject of your inquiry, or to a government agency responsible for the matters referred to in your communication.

Security. Because this site does not encrypt incoming e-mail, you should not send information that you consider highly sensitive through this web site. We use standard security measures to ensure that your personally identifiable information is not lost, misused, altered, or unintentionally destroyed. We also use software programs to monitor network traffic to identify unauthorized attempts to upload or change information, or otherwise cause damage. Except for authorized law enforcement investigations, no attempts are made to identify individual users or their usage habits.
