For each visitor, the County collects the following information: the Internet Protocol (IP) address, type of browser used, operating system, date and time of the visit, and the addresses of the pages on this web site to which you link during a visit to the County's web site.

How is the collected information used?

The County uses a third party service to analyze web site activity, track the number of visits and identify the most popular pages. This helps us to improve content and the value of materials available on this web site.
