We at Conewago Township are especially concerned about protecting children's privacy. We hope parents and teachers are involved in children's Internet explorations. It is particularly important for parents to guide their children when children are asked to provide personal information on line. Conewago Township encourages children to communicate with their local government officials and send email messages with their feedback and suggestions. We specifically ask children to get their parents' permission before providing any information on line -- at our site or any other site -- and hope parents will always be involved in those decisions. Most importantly, when children do provide information through Conewago Township web site, it is only used to enable us to respond to the writer, and not to create profiles of children.
