York Region supports the personal right to Privacy and is committed to collecting and using your personal information responsibly. York Region is subject to the provisions of the Municipal Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act (MFIPPA). MFIPPA requires that a local government protect the privacy of an individual's personal information that exists in its records and that it follow rules regarding the collection, retention, use, disclosure and disposal of personal information in its custody or control.
Your personal information is collected under the authority of sections 11(1) and 227(c) of the Municipal Act, 2001. The personal information will be used by York Region staff for responding to your service request and/or inquiry. York Region will only collect information vital to the functionality of the mobile application and basic analytics information to allow us to continue to improve the mobile application experience for our users.

Once you download the application, your unique ID device is sent to our hosting server so that update notifications and location notifications can be delivered to you. You can disable these notifications at any time using the settings page accessible via the “Gear” icon in the top right hand corner of the application Dashboard.
If you sign up for optional notifications, your location as a latitude and longitude, and the details of the notification you would like to receive are collected and stored so that we can send you the appropriate notification. You can disable these notifications at any time using the settings page accessible via the “Gear” icon in the top right hand corner of application Dashboard.
Page visits within the York Region mobile app are recorded solely for analytics purposes but cannot be tied back to an individual as only a unique “device id” is transmitted to our hosting server. The type of device being used such as the user agent and device type (Windows Phone, IOS, Blackberry 10, etc) is also stored. These analytics are viewable by York Region as well as the application developer.
When a “report” is submitted within the mobile app, the third-party hosting servers relay the information to York Region and may keep the report information in the hosting database so that York Region can view it from the secure portal.
All data noted in this statement is transmitted to the hosting server over the HTTPS secure protocol.
Under no circumstances will York Region provide collected information to any third party with the exception of the analytics noted above unless compelled by a court order or applicable law.
