However, as described in more detail in below, there are limited circumstances in which some of your information will be shared with third parties, under strict restrictions, so it is important for you to review this Privacy Policy.

This Privacy Policy applies to all services that are hosted on any Township of Montclair web site, whether the services are offered directly by the Township or via third parties. All third parties are limited by law or by contract from using the information for secondary purposes beyond the purposes for which the information is shared.

Please take notice that information and/or documents which you provide to the Township, including Channel 34, are subject to disclosure. The New Jersey Open Public Records Act, N.J.S.A. 47:1A-1 et seq. (OPRA) requires the Township upon request to provide public records to any member of the public. Public records covered by OPRA include most documents in the Township’s possession.

What We Do With Personal Information

We do not collect any personal information from a visitor to any of our sites unless that visitor explicitly and intentionally provides it.

This means you can visit any Township of Montclair web site without telling us who you are or revealing any personally identifiable information about yourself. As you browse any Township site, our web servers do collect information about your visit, but not about you personally. None of the information about how you navigate the sites is combined with any personal identifiers.

Under no circumstances do we collect any personal data revealing racial or ethnic origin, religious or philosophical beliefs, or sexual characteristics. If you are simply browsing our site, we do not gather any personal information about you.


There are several ways in which you may explicitly and intentionally provide us with and consent to our collection of certain personal information:

We use links throughout our sites to provide you with the opportunity to contact us via e-mail to ask questions and raise issues of public importance, request information and materials, to purchase tickets or sign up for township sponsored goods, services, and events, or provide us with your comments and suggestions.

To do so, we may request additional personal information from you, such as name, address, phone number, or e-mail address, to help us satisfy your request.

We do not sell or disclose personally identifiable information obtained online about you to other people or nonaffiliated entities unless (a) you specifically authorize it; (b) it is to complete a transaction that you initiated; (c) it is required by law, (d) disclosure is necessary to protect your safety, township employees or property.

Montclair Township Social Media Policy PDF Print E-mail


The purpose of this social media policy is to establish enforceable rules for the use of social media by Township officers and employees when engaged in Township business. Social media at this time refers to Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, GooglePlus, and any other form of communication that is open to response or comment. Rules are necessary to assure that communications made on behalf of the Township are properly authorized and in correct form; that communications to the municipality by means of social media which can be viewed by the public are appropriate and pertinent; that all communications to the municipality are directed to the proper recipient; and that the sender is clearly and fully informed that a message received by means of social media is not a substitute for required reporting procedures.

The objective of the use of social media by the Township or its departments is to expand and facilitate communication between the Township and its residents, taxpayers and the general public, so that interested citizens may also share township information. Users are encouraged to submit comments, questions and concerns, but please note that township social media sites may serve as moderated online discussions and not public forums.
