We automatically collect statistical information as described below but only to assist us in improving this website. MI Rec Connect does not:

Automatically Collected Information

If you only browse our website or download data, some information will be collected automatically. This information will not identify you personally. It is used only to improve this site by telling us the number of visitors and the types of browser and operating system our visitors are using. The following information is collected each time someone visits any website:

The Internet domain name (examples: or from which you access our site. Note, this is not your Internet address.

  • The IP address from which you connected to our site. The Internet Protocol address is a number assigned to your computer or provided by your Internet Service Provider whenever you browse the Internet. We use this address to send data you request back to you.
  • The type of browser you used to visit our site.
  • The type of operating system you used.
  • The date and time you visit our site.
  • The specific pages you visit at our site.
  • If you linked to our site from another website, the address of that site.

Personal Information

Except as otherwise provided in this policy, we will keep personal information private and not share it unless disclosure is necessary to comply with the law, a court order, or other legal process or to protect the rights of MI Rec Connect or enforce some term or provision of this policy. In registering for, applying for, and paying for classes, courses or performing some other transaction online; in filling out a form or a survey; or in sending an email, you will be asked to voluntarily provide the following personal information:

1. Information by participating in an online transaction.
2. Information through an online form.
3. Information in response to a survey.
4. The email address and contents for those who communicate with us via email.

A domain name or Internet protocol address is not considered personal information.

The information you provide will be used only for the purpose for which it is intended. This personal information, once submitted to this website, becomes a public record subject to public record keeping regulations, including disclosure. (See the definition of a public record). In most cases the information you give us will be used only to help us in providing you with the services or information that you request.

Public Access to Information

If personal information is requested on the website or volunteered by the user, state and federal law may protect it. However, this information is a public record once it is provided and may be subject to public inspection and copying if it is not protected by law. Washington State laws exist to ensure that government is open and that the public has a right to access appropriate records and information possessed by city government. At the same time, there are exceptions to the public’s right to access public records that serve various needs, including the privacy of individuals. Both state and federal laws provide exceptions.

RCW 42.17.260(9) prohibits the commercial use of lists of individuals’ information (including address, phone, or email) provided on this site. In the event of a conflict between this Privacy Notice and the Public Records Act or other law governing the disclosure of records, the Public Records Act or other applicable law will control.

Use of Cookies

To better serve our users, we use "cookies" to customize your browsing experience on some part of the MI Rec Connect website. Cookies are simple text files stored on your computer by a web server. Cookies created on your computer by using this website do not contain personally identifying information and do not compromise your privacy or security.

Cookies Defined: Persistent Client-State HTTP Cookies are files containing information about visitors to a Website (e.g., user name and preferences). This information is provided by the user during the first visit to a Web server. The server records this information in a text file and stores this file on the visitor's hard drive. When the visitor accesses the same Website again, the server looks for the cookie and configures itself based on the information provided.

Site Security

MI Rec Connect has taken steps to safeguard the information on this site and prevent unauthorized access to information it maintains--including authentication, monitoring, auditing, and encryption. Security measures are taken as a part of the implementation of all software and hardware infrastructure as part of our continuing commitment to risk management. However, we cannot warrant as fail proof the security of information collected or provided via this website. Unauthorized attempts to change information on this site or upload information are strictly prohibited.

Electronic Commerce

You have the option to do business online with the City of Mercer Island, including making electronic payments for goods and services. Such transactions are allowed only under tightly controlled circumstances, where there are appropriate technological and other safeguards in place to protect financial and other sensitive data. All credit card transactions are encrypted.

MI Rec Connect is responsible for properly securing communications that are exempt from public disclosure, including financial information.

The design of the electronic commerce systems supported on the MI Rec Connect website is such that financial data remains primarily with financial institutions. Wherever possible, financial information is not seen or collected by the city itself. Instead, designated banks route the data, transfer the funds, and confirm payment to both you and the city. In addition, measures including but not limited to encryption are used to ensure the integrity and security of your financial information.

The provision of 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 the MI Rec Connect website.


MI Rec Connect does not warrant the accuracy, reliability, or timeliness of the information published on this website and shall not be held liable for any losses caused by the reliance on such. Portions of such information may be incorrect or not current. Any person or entity that relies on any information obtained from this site does so at his or her own risk. Furthermore, other sites may link to MI Rec Connect.

 MI Rec Connect does not endorse any content, viewpoints, products, or services linked from this site and is not responsible for any losses caused by reliance on the accuracy, reliability, or timeliness of such information.

Although we take appropriate measures to safeguard against unauthorized disclosures of information, we cannot assure you that personally identifiable information that we collect will never be disclosed in a manner that is inconsistent with this Privacy Notice.
