LDL is an organizational unit of Seattle City Light. As such, the policies to protect your privacy are further governed accordingly. In the State of Washington, Public Disclosure 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 (The Public Records Act or "PRA" RCW 42.56.070). 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. The PRA requires the disclosure of all public records unless a particular record (or particular information contained in a record) is specifically exempt under the PRA or other applicable law. For example, there is no categorical exemption for residential telephone numbers, residential addresses, or personal email addresses. However, the PRA does not require the disclosure of "credit card numbers, debit card numbers, electronic check numbers, card expiration dates, or bank or other financial account numbers supplied to [the City] for the purpose of electronic transfer of funds, except when disclosure is expressly required by law". For additional information: City of Seattle Online Privacy and Security Policies.
The Public Records Act does not authorize the City to give, sell or provide access to lists of individuals to entities seeking to use the lists for commercial purposes. City practice is to require those who request lists of individuals to sign an affidavit stating that they do not have a commercial purpose (such as contacting those on the list to propose a commercial transaction). However, the City cannot guarantee that a requester will not, despite signing such an affidavit, contact individuals on the list for a commercial purpose. 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.
Title II of the American Disabilities Act (ADA) requires the City of Seattle to provide people with disabilities an equal opportunity to access City services, programs and activities. For the Notice Under the Americans with Disabilities Act, click here.
