While Tompkins County makes an effort to post accurate and reliable information, it does not guarantee or warrant that the information on this website is complete, accurate, or up-to-date. Tompkins County shall not be liable under any circumstances for any claims or damages arising directly or indirectly from information presented herein.

Third-Party Sites

The Tompkins County web site links to websites maintained by other entities. Reasonable precautions are taken to link only to web sites which are appropriate, accurate, and maintained by reputable organizations. However, those web pages are not under Tompkins County's control and Tompkins County is not responsible for the information or opinions expressed in those linked sites.


The Tompkins County website is copyrighted. Graphics, images, and author-credited content contained in any of the pages may not be used without written permission of the County. For all other content, feel free to copy, reprint, or forward information as long as the use is not for resale or profit, and Tompkins County is listed as the information source.

Automatic Data Collection

In order to improve the content and usability of this website, several categories of information are automatically collected from users and stored in a log file. The information does not contain the visitor's name or e-mail address, since the visitor's browser does not provide this information to the web server. Periodically, Tompkins County analyzes this information to learn about how visitors are using the content on the site. This information is used to allocate resources effectively and improve the content of our site.

Voluntary Registration

Certain parts of the Tompkins County site give a visitor the option of providing name, municipality, e-mail address, and other information, which is recorded in databases on our servers. The data may be used to send e-mail announcements to Tompkins County customers who have shown an interest in particular topics or updates. If you provide contact information to the County through this website and do not wish to receive unsolicited e-mail announcements, please e-mail the contact person for the department or program, requesting that you not be included in any direct mailings.
