Library Privacy Policy


The Cora J. Belden Public Library of Rocky Hill is committed to protecting the privacy of visitors to its web site. The following sets forth our information gathering and dissemination practices:

When you visit the Library's web site, we collect and store information only to measure the number of visitors to different areas of our site to assist us in making our site more useful to you. This information may include:

  • The address (IP) of your computer or internet provider
  • The date and time you accessed our site
  • The Internet address of the web site that referred you to our site.

We may ask visitors to our site to provide their e-mail address, postal address and/or telephone number only when needed to assist in answering inquiries or providing information. If a user submitting their postal address, e-mail address or telephone number is suspected of being younger than 13 years of age, we will delete this information from our records in accordance with the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA).

In accordance with the Library Confidentiality Policy, we will not sell, lease, or otherwise distribute or disclose your e-mail address, postal address, phone number, borrower records or other personal information for non-library purposes to outside parties unless required by law.

We will never disclose a child's personal information as fullname, address, etc. ("information that would facilitate or enable the physical or online locating and contacting of a specific individual") without written approval from a parent or legal guardian. In accordance with Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) we will only display on our site a child's first name, last initial, location and/or age on our sites to announce contest winners and display user submitted comments.

The Library's web site may use "cookies" to allow you access to certain functions within our site. These cookie files do not capture any personal user information (such as e-mail address or user passwords). Temporary cookie files are automatically deleted when you close your browser.

Some of the Library web site pages contain links to external sites not maintained by the Library. The Library cannot be responsible for your privacy when you disclose information to outside web sites. It is the your responsibility to protect your personal information.

From time to time, we may use visitor information for new unanticipated uses not previously disclosed in our privacy notice. If our information practices do change, we will post the policy changes on our site to notify you and provide you with the ability to opt out of these new uses. If you have any concerns about how your information is used, please contact the Webmaster.
