Village of Saranac Lake Website Privacy Policy and Terms of Use


We use a tool called Google Analytics to collect information about use on this site. Google Analytics collects information such as how often users visit this site, what pages they visit when they do so, and what other sites they used prior to coming to this site. We use the information we get from Google Analytics only to improve this site. Google Analytics collects only the IP address assigned to you on the date you visit this site, rather than your name or other identifying information. Although Google Analytics plants a permanent cookie on your web browser to identify you as a unique user the next time you visit this site, the cookie cannot be used by anyone but Google. Google's ability to use and share information collected by Google Analytics about your visits to this site is restricted by the Google Analytics Terms of Service. You can prevent Google Analytics from recognizing you on return visits to this site by disabling cookies on your browser.


Online Services

We offer online access to Village forms as a means to improve services and to make them more convenient and accessible. If during your visit to this web site you access services (i.e. complete a Parks Use/Event Form), we will collect additional information related directly to that service. We will limit the information requested to only that required to conduct the service. We will not use the information for any other purpose without your permission. We will not disclose such information to third parties, except as specified in this privacy policy.

If you request information, services, or assistance, we may disclose your personal information to those third parties that (in our judgment) are appropriate in order to fulfill your request. If, when you provide us with such information, you specify that you do not want us to disclose the information to third parties, we will honor your request. Note, however, that if you do not provide such information, it may be impossible for us to refer, respond to or fulfill your request. If your communication relates to a law enforcement matter, we will disclose the information to law enforcement agencies that we deem appropriate.


Third Party Sites

This website features external links to third party sites not controlled by The Village of Saranac Lake, which therefore are not covered by this privacy statement. We recommend that you check the privacy statement of other sites you visit before providing any personal information.


New York State

We may share information in accordance with the following:

  • the New York Public Records Law
  • the New York Fair Information Practices Act
  • the New York Freedom of Information Law
  • laws relating to the confidentiality of tax and wage reporting

The Village's use and dissemination of the information you provide is governed by these laws and any other laws that The State of New York sees fit to put in place in the future.


Changes to This Privacy Policy

This Privacy Policy will remain in effect except with respect to any changes in its provisions in the future, which will be in effect immediately after being posted on this page. We reserve the right to update or change our Privacy Policy at any time and you should check this Privacy Policy periodically. Your continued use of the site after we post any modifications to the Privacy Policy on this page will constitute your acknowledgment of the modifications and your consent to abide by the modified Privacy Policy.
