New Privacy Page

by on February 7th, 2018

Iowa City Public Library is committed to protecting its patrons’ privacy and confidentiality. We try to keep as little information about our patrons as possible and we don’t share it with others.  We routinely purge information including your checkout history unless you decide to opt-in to keep it.   The information that we do keep is directly related to providing services and delivering content.

We are also trying to be more transparent about the information that we do keep. We have had a publicly available privacy policy for a long time, but we decided to create a new Confidentiality and Privacy Page that is more user-friendly. At the top of the page, we outline some key points that all patrons should be aware of.  If you don’t read anything else, please check this section out.

Below that we also have a chart outlining all the different data that we keep, and how long we keep it.  Finally, we maintain a list of 3rd party vendors and providers that we use with links to their privacy policies.  If you have questions or concerns about these topics, please contact us.
