Privacy Policy & Disclaimer

Personal Information
“Personal information” is info that is readily identifiable to a specific individual. Personal information includes such things as an individual’s name, address, phone number, and email address. A domain name or Internet protocol address is not considered personal information.

We collect no personal information about you unless you voluntarily participate in an activity that asks for information (i.e., sending an email, participating in a survey, or accessing a service). If you choose not to participate in these activities, your choice will in no way affect your ability to use any other feature of our Web site.

If personal information is required on the Web site or volunteered by the user, this information is a public record once you provide it, and may be subject to public inspection and copying if not protected by federal or state law.

If you have any questions or concerns about keeping information you submit private, please contact us: webmaster@ci.wilsonville.or.us.

Public Disclosure
In the State of Oregon, laws exist to ensure that government is open and that the public has a right to access appropriate records and information possessed by state and local government. At the same time, there are certain limited exceptions to the public’s right to access public records. Both state and federal laws provide exceptions.

All information collected at this site becomes public records that may be subject to inspection and copying by the public, unless an exemption in law exists. ORS 192.420 states that: Every person has the right to inspect any public record of a public body in this state, except as otherwise expressly provided by ORS 192.501 to 192.505.

In the event of a conflict between this Privacy Policy and state or federal law governing the disclosure of records, the state or federal law will control.

The following is a partial list of what is now considered “private” information under state and federal law. We will not disclose the following information:

  • Social security number 
  • Driver license number 
  • Credit card information 
  • Bank account information
In some cases you may request that information you submit that normally would be considered “public” should instead be kept private. Please direct any such requests to webmaster@ci.wilsonville.or.us.

Online Services
The City of Wilsonville intends to offer more services online as a means to improve services and to make them more convenient and accessible. If during your visit to the City of Wilsonville Web site you access services (e.g. Utility Payments Online) we will collect additional information related directly to the service you are accessing. We will limit the information requested to only that required to conduct the service. You may be offered opportunities related to the service, for instance to be put on a mailing list for upcoming events, and it will be your choice as to whether you accept the offer.


Public Records
The information that you provide and we collect is retained in accordance with Oregon Revised Statutes (ORS) Public Records Policy 192.005 to 192.170 and 357.805 to 357.895. In some limited cases the information may be exempt from these regulations.
