Privacy Policy

This website is owned and operated by the Southeastern Wisconsin Regional Planning Commission ("Commission"). By visiting and using the features of this website, you agree to be bound by the following terms and conditions relative to your personal information, if any, received by the Commission through your use of this website (the “Privacy Policy”).

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, the Commission collects non-personally identifiable information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. the Commission’s purpose in collecting such non-personally identifiable information is to better understand how the Commission’s visitors use its website. From time to time, the Commission may release such non-personally identifiable information in the aggregate (e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of this website).

The Commission may also collect potentially personally identifiable information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. The Commission does not use IP addresses to identify its website visitors, however, and does not disclose such information, other than under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information, as described below.

The Commission does not directly solicit or collect personally identifiable information through this website. In the event that the Commission receives personally identifiable information, the Commission will not disclose personally identifiable information other than as described below.

Protection of Personally Identifiable Information

With respect to potentially personally identifiable information, or in the event the Commission receives personally identifiable information, it will disclose such information only to those Commissioners, employees, contractors, and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on the Commission’s behalf or to provide services available through this website, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others.

The Commission will not rent or sell potentially personally identifiable or personally identifiable information to anyone.

The Commission may also make disclosure of potentially personally identifiable information, or personally identifiable information if any, received when required to do so by law, if you give permission to have your information shared, or when the Commission believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of the Commission, third parties, or the public at large.


The Commission will retain any potentially personally identifiable, or personally identifiable information systems, only for as long as needed. We keep contact information (such as mailing list information) until a user unsubscribes or requests that we delete that information from our live systems. If you choose to unsubscribe from a mailing list, we may keep certain limited information about you so that we may honor your request.

Third-Party Links

This website may contain links to other websites provided by third parties. When following a link and providing information to any such website, please be aware that the Commission is not responsible for any personally identifiable information you may provide to such party. This Privacy Policy only applies to the Commission, so when you visit other websites, even when you click on a link posted on this website, you should read any privacy policy applicable to such third-party website.


Additionally, information about how you use this website may be collected automatically using “cookies.” Cookies are text files placed on your computer to collect standard internet log information and visitor behavior information. This information is used to track visitor use of the website and to compile statistical reports on website activity. You can limit use of cookies or delete them on your system.

Privacy Policy Changes

The Commission may change this Privacy Policy from time to time, and at the Commission’s sole discretion. The Commission encourages visitors to frequently check this page for any changes to this Privacy Policy. Your continued use of this website after any change in this Privacy Policy will constitute your acceptance of such change.
