If You Send Us Personal Information
If you choose to provide us with personal information – like filling out a Contact Us form with an e-mail address and zip code and submitting it to us through the website – we use that information to respond to your message and to help us get you the information you have requested. We only share the information you give us with another government agency if your inquiry relates to that agency, or as otherwise required by law. We never create individual profiles or give it to any private organizations. The City of Rocklin website never collects information for commercial marketing.
While you must provide an e-mail address for a localized response to any incoming questions or comments to the City of Rocklin website, we recommend that you NOT include any other personal information, especially Social Security numbers.
