Information Collected and How it is Used

If you do nothing during your visit to our website but browse, read pages, or download information, we will gather and store certain information about your visit. This information does not identify you personally. We automatically collect and store the following information about your visit:

  1. The Internet Protocol Address and domain name used. The Internet Protocol address is a numerical identifier assigned either to your Internet service provider or directly to your computer. We use the Internet Protocol Address to direct Internet traffic to you. This address can be translated to determine the domain name of your service provider (e.g. xcompany.com or yourschool.edu)
  2. The type of browser and operating system you used
  3. The date and time you visited this site
  4. The web pages or services you accessed at this site
  5. The website you visited prior to coming to this web site

The information we automatically collect or store is logged and used by the HHWT only to improve the content of our web services and to help us understand how people are using our services.

What we collect if you volunteer information.

If during your visit to our web site you participate in a survey, send an email, or perform some other transaction on-line, the following additional information will be collected:

  1. The email address, and contents of email, for those who communicate with us via email
  2. Information volunteered in response to a survey
  3. Information volunteered through an online form for any other purpose

The information collected is not limited to text characters and may include audio, video, and graphic information formats you send us.
We use your email to respond appropriately. This may be to respond to you, to address issues you may identify, to further improve our web site, or to forward the email to another agency for appropriate action. Survey information is used to enhance recreational opportunity offerings and business function processing.

Personal Information and Choice

"Personal information" is information about a person that is readily identifiable to that specific individual. Personal information includes such things as an individual's name, address, and phone number. A domain name or Internet Protocol address is not considered personal information. We collect no personal information about you unless you voluntarily provide it to us by sending us email, participating in a survey, completing an online form, or obtaining an electronic permit online. You may choose not to contact us by email, participate in a survey, to provide any personal information using an online form, or buy a permit and/or pass online. Your choice to not participate in these activities will not impair your ability to browse our site and read or download any information provided on the site. Our web site is a general audience site and we do not knowingly collect any personal information from children. Users are cautioned that the collection of personal information requested from or volunteered by children on-line or by email will be treated the same as information given by an adult, and may be subject to public access.

Nondisclosure of Certain Personal Information

The HHWT may require you to provide certain personal information in order to acquire an electronic permit. The information is required in order to assign and mail out the permanent permit. You may choose not to provide this information, but if you choose not to provide it we will be unable to issue temporary permits, and you will have to acquire your permit either in person or by mail.

Use of Personal Information

Personal Information obtained as a result of a request to the site will not be sold or given to private companies for marketing purposes. Information requests sent to the website may be maintained in order to respond to the request, forward that request to the appropriate agency, communicate updates to the page that may be of interest to citizens, or to provide the HHWT web designer with valuable customer feedback to assist in improving the site. Individuals will be provided with the ability to "opt out" at anytime of any communication regarding new service updates.


The HHWT has taken several steps to safeguard the integrity of its data and prevent unauthorized access to information maintained by the HHWT. These measures are designed and intended to prevent corruption of data, block unknown or unauthorized access to our systems and information, and to provide reasonable protection of private information in our possession. This information should not be construed in any way as giving business, legal, or other advice, or warranting as fail proof, the security of information provided via HHWT websites.


The HHWT’s website has many links to other websites. These include links to websites operated by other government agencies, nonprofit organizations and private businesses. When you link to another site, you are no longer on the HHWT website and this Privacy Notice will not apply. When you link to another website, you are subject to the privacy policy of that new site. Neither the HHWT, nor any department, officer, or employee of the HHWT warrants the accuracy, reliability or timeliness of any information published by this system, nor endorses any content, viewpoints, products, or services linked from this system, and shall not be held liable for any losses caused by reliance on the accuracy, reliability or timeliness of such information. Portions of such information may be incorrect or not current. Any person or entity that relies on any information obtained from this system does so at his or her own risk. The HHWT reserves the right to revise and update this Privacy Notice at any time by posting such revised Privacy Notice on the HHWT’s website.
