Disclosure and Dissemination
We do not sell any personal information to any third party. However, some information collected by this application, and some information you choose to provide, is subject to disclosure to the public in response to a public records request, as required by the California Public Records Act. These laws exist to ensure that government is open and that the public can access appropriate records and information possessed by government agencies.
Legal exemptions to this public disclosure exist to protect individuals’ privacy. The California Welfare and Institutions Code (http://www.leginfo.ca.gov/cgi-bin/displaycode?section=wic&group=10001-11000&file=10850-10853) expressly requires the confidentiality of personal information gathered for the purpose of the Medi-Cal and CalFresh (formerly known as Food Stamps) programs, and protects it from being disclosed to the public.
This application includes links to navigate publicly available information from agencies that are not part of this application and over whom we exercise no control. We suggest contacting these sites directly for information on their data collection and distribution policies.
We monitor network traffic to identify unauthorized attempts to upload or change information or to otherwise cause damage to the application. Anyone using this application expressly consents to such monitoring. Except for authorized law enforcement investigations, no attempts are made to identify individual users or their usage habits.
We take appropriate security measures to protect against unauthorized access, alteration or destruction of data, including your personal and private information.
Please note that this Notice can change from time to time. We expect most such changes to these policies to be minor, but we will post those changes here as they occur. You may wish to revisit this page to learn of any changes.
