Email Consent Form
The RM of Loon Lake wants to offer the residents of the RM of Loon Lake the opportunity to receive specific notices as attachments in an email rather than by regular mail.
Transmitting information by email has a number of risks that residents should be aware of. These include, but are not limited to:
- Emails can be circulated, forwarded, and stored in numerous paper and electronic files.
- Emails can be immediately broadcast worldwide and be received by many intended and unintended recipients.
- Email senders can easily misaddress an email.
- Email is easier to falsify than handwritten or signed documents.
- Backup copies of emails may exist even after the sender or the recipient has deleted their copy.
- Emails can be intercepted, altered, forwarded, or used without authorization or detection.
- Emails can be used to introduce viruses into the computer system.
- Emails can be used as evidence in court.
The RM of Loon Lake will use reasonable means to protect the security and confidentiality of email information sent and received. However, because of the risks outline above, the RM of Loon Lake cannot guarantee the security and confidentiality of email communication, and will not be liable for improper disclosure of confidential information. For this reason, the customer must consent to the use of email for delivery of the RM of Loon Lake notices.
Consent to the use of email for the delivery of RM of Loon Lake notices includes agreement with the following:
- Failure to receive an e-mailed municipal notice does not release me from my responsibility to pay any charges specified on the notice, or any penalties which may be incurred by late payment.
- I will inform The RM of Loon Lake of any changes to my e-mail address as soon as possible to prevent the misdirection of notices and reduce the risk of my not receiving a notice.
- I may withdraw from e-mail notices at any time. To do so I will inform The RM of Loon Lake and all notices which were previously e-mailed to me will be sent by regular mail.
