Duty to Continue Provision of Data
The dynamic nature of the Internet may and does cause resources that are free and publicly available at one point in time to be less available, available for fee, or unavailable at some subsequent point in time. Further, locations within this site may change as menus, sidebars, and files are reorganized. Website visitors/users expressly agree that use of the County website is at website visitors’/users’ sole risk. The County does not warrant that the service will be uninterrupted or error free. The documents and related graphics published at this and related domains may contain technical and/or typographical errors. The County and/or its respective agencies and programs may make improvements and/or changes in the information and/or programs described herein and/or on the County website at any time and without prior notice.
Site design, implementation and day-to-day operation include certain security measures in keeping with the County’s continuing commitment to the security of electronic content and electronic transmission of information. The form on our “Contact” page does use traditional email methods of delivery and therefore does incorporate the somewhat limited security methods prevalent in traditional residential and commercial email technology.
