One should not divulge a password to anyone, and the City will never ask a user for a password in a telephone call, fax, e-mail or other form of unsolicited communication. When a user is finished with an application or applications that are password protected, such user should exit the relevant page(s). If the browser used to access said password protected pages is a publicly-accessible browser, users should close down the entire session and, if applicable or possible, flush any temporary caches or other areas where such a password might be stored subsequent to use.

This website and Historicmidway.com generally, do not use "persistent cookies." Cookies are text files, or entries in larger files, utilized to distinguish between visitors to a website, and to track information during multiple visits to a website. The City uses "temporary cookies" on some parts of Historicmidway.com, and such temporary cookies expire upon the end of the browsing session. If a user registers to use Historicmidway.com, when such technology becomes available, as a customized portal, the City uses a persistent cookie to facilitate such customization.
No applications on Historicmidway.com specifically solicit information from minors or seek to determine whether the visitor is a minor. Consequently, because such information will not be specifically identified as being from minors, users of Historicmidway.com should be aware that personally identifiable information submitted to Historicmidway.com by minors will be subject to being treated in the same manner as information given by an adult and may become subject to PRA.
The City strongly believes that parental supervision is an important factor in Internet use by minors. Therefore, Historicmidway.com asks parents to guide their minor children when children are asked to provide any personal information online. Historicmidway.com further asks that children ask for and receive their parent's permission before providing any information online.
