As a governmental agency, we are governed by public records laws. Any information that we receive or generate through the use of our site is public record and subject to disclosure unless protected by federal or state law.

If you send us an e-mail, we may redirect your message to another governmental agency or person who is in a better position to answer your question or handle your message. We only share the information you provide with another agency if your inquiry relates to that agency or as otherwise required by law.

Otherwise, we do not share personal identifying information with any third party without your permission. We disclose only in aggregate form our statistical analyses or demographics of users to third parties. This information is not reported or used in any manner that would reveal personally identifying information and is not released to any outside parties unless we are legally required to do so in connection with law enforcement investigations or other legal proceedings.

Linking to Other Sites
The city’s site has many links to other Web sites, such as those operated by other governmental agencies, nonprofit organizations and private businesses. When you link to another site, you are no longer on the city’s site and this privacy policy does not apply. When you link to another Web site, you are subject to that site’s privacy policy, which we encourage you to review. Links to Web sites outside of the city of Glendale are offered solely for your convenience. The city is not responsible for nor has control over the policies or content of any third-party sites.
