STATUTORY OBLIGATIONS OF LIBRARIES. As provided in RSMo 182.815-182.817, the Library specifically recognizes any document, record, or other method of storing information retained, received, or generated by the Library that identifies a person or persons having requested, used, or borrowed library material to be confidential, including document delivery requests. The Library shall not divulge such information to anyone other than the borrower or the borrower's parent organization while using Library services in a professional capacity. Such records shall not be made available to any agency of state, federal, or local government except pursuant to such process, order, or subpoena as may be authorized under the authority of, and pursuant to, federal, state, or local law relating to civil, criminal, or administrative discovery procedures or legislative investigatory power. The Library shall resist the issuance or enforcement of any such process, order, or subpoena until such time as a proper showing of good cause has been made in a court of competent jurisdiction.
NON-PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION OBTAINED THROUGH YOUR USE OF THE SITE. The Library records and compiles aggregate demographic data related to our users in order to manage the services offered and to provide aggregate information to potential funders of the Library's programs. The Library collects and analyzes data about the use of the Site to improve service, and may choose to use an externally hosted service (e.g. Google Analytics) to collect this data. This information is generally not personally identifiable information.
