Public Records Information of My Account Users

Wisconsin Public Records Laws may subject your email address and other personal information to disclosure to third parties. Your email address and other personal information would only be provided to third parties through public records requests as required by Wisconsin Public Records Laws. The City of Madison has added a Public Records Opt-out feature to help protect the privacy of My Account users that elect to keep their information confidential.

The City will abide by your request for confidentiality to the point of opposing public records lawsuits aimed at forcing such disclosure, however, the City cannot guarantee that a court will not order such disclosure.
