Pasco County Liability Disclaimer and User Agreement

THE FOLLOWING TERMS GOVERN THE USE OF ANY AND ALL PASCO COUNTY WEBSITES, SOFTWARE, AND SOCIAL MEDIA PLATFORMS:

As authorized by Florida Statutes, Pasco County provides access to public records and information by remote electronic means as an additional way of viewing, inspecting or copying public records.  While every effort is made to produce the most accurate information possible, Pasco County makes no representations or warranties, express or implied, as to the accuracy, completeness, suitability, or timeliness of the information contained on our websites, social media platforms, and in our software programs. There may be situations, such as a work in progress, when the information may change, and you, the user, (“User”) should refer to the official version of all documents on which the User intends to rely.  Pasco County does not represent or guarantee that all of its public records are available in an electronic format.

Because access to this information is provided by Pasco County for the convenience of all users, any use or access by a User which adversely impacts the performance of the system, or the ability of other users to access information, such as, but not limited to, electronic data harvesting, may result in the termination of that user’s access to the information over the internet.

General

The Pasco County websites, social media platforms, and software programs are offered to you, the User, conditioned on acceptance of the terms, conditions, and notices contained herein, without modification. User access and use of any County website, social media platforms, and software programs constitutes acceptance of these terms and conditions.  These terms control the relationship between the County and the User and confer no third party rights.  The websites, social media platforms, and software programs are part of the Pasco County system, provided as a public service.  Pasco County reserves the right to offer these websites, social media platforms, and software programs directly to you or through its authorized agents and contractors.  Government personnel and the general public may use this system to review and retrieve publicly available government information.  User agrees to use Pasco County websites, social media platforms, and software programs as permitted by applicable local, state, and federal laws.  User agrees, therefore, not to: 1) knowingly and without authorization, alter, damage, or destroy Pasco County's, its contractors’ or another user's computer system, network, software, program, documentation or data contained therein; 2) use this service to conduct or attempt to conduct any business or activity or solicit the performance of any activity that is prohibited by law; or 3) to use this service and the information provided on these sites in a manner in which it was not intended to be used.  Repeated violations or a single violation of this user agreement could result in User being blocked from posting on, or using any or all official Pasco County websites, social media platforms, and software programs. In addition, taking action which results in blocking access to a Pasco County website, social media platform, and software program by other users will be deemed an unauthorized use.  

Anyone using this system expressly consents to administrative monitoring at all times by Pasco County and its authorized agents and contractors. You are further advised that system administrators may provide evidence of possible criminal activity identified during such monitoring to appropriate law enforcement officials.  If you do not wish to consent to monitoring, exit this system now.

Using this system does not confer upon the User ownership of any intellectual property rights of the content on the County’s websites, social media platforms or software programs.  Further, the use of this system does not grant the permission to use the County’s seal, logos, or brandings.  Use of the County seal, logos, or brandings without the express authorization of the County could subject the user to fines or other penalties.

Pasco County reserves to itself the right to modify these terms or add additional terms at any time to reflect changes in the law or to the system.  Any conflict between these terms and a subsequent amendment, the amendment shall govern.  These terms are severable.  The laws of the State of Florida shall apply to any disputes arising out of or relating to these terms or the use of the County’s system.  Venue for all disputes shall be in the federal or state courts in and for Pasco County, Florida and the User consents to personal jurisdiction in those courts.

Disclaimer of Liability and Reliability:

In preparation of these sites, pages, platforms, and programs every effort has been made to offer the most current, correct, and clearly-expressed information possible.  Nevertheless, inadvertent errors in information may occur.  In particular, but without limiting anything here, Pasco County and its authorized agents and contractors disclaim any responsibility for typographical errors and accuracy of the information that may be contained on Pasco County websites, social media platforms, and software programs.  The information and data included in these websites, social media platforms, and software programs have been compiled by Pasco County staff and/or program users from a variety of sources, and are subject to change without notice to the User.  Pasco County and its authorized agents and contractors make no warranties or representations whatsoever regarding the quality, content, completeness, suitability, adequacy, sequence, accuracy, timeliness of such information and data, or non-infringement of proprietary rights. Pasco County also disclaims any responsibility for any use of the information received through these websites, social media platforms, and software programs by the User or any third party. 

In addition to the preceding terms and conditions the County, its officers, employees, agents or representatives shall not be liable for any damages of any kind arising from  use of the online payment service. Nothing contained in County websites, social media platforms, and software programs constitutes or is intended to constitute legal advice by the County or any of its agencies, officers, employees, agents, or representatives.

In any situation where the official printed publications of Pasco County differ from the text contained in this system, the official printed documents take precedence. THE SERVICES, INFORMATION, AND DATA MADE AVAILABLE AT A WEBSITE, ON A SOCIAL MEDIA PLATFORM, OR IN A SOFTWARE PROGRAM ARE PROVIDED "AS IS" WITHOUT WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND.  PASCO COUNTY AND ITS AUTHORIZED AGENTS AND CONTRACTORS MAKE NO REPRESENTATIONS OR WARRANTIES REGARDING THE CONDITION OR FUNCTIONALITY OF WEBSITES, SOCIAL MEDIA PLATFORMS, OR SOFTWARE PROGRAMS; ITS SUITABILITY FOR USE; OR THAT THESE SERVICES WILL BE UNINTERRUPTED OR ERROR-FREE.

Legal Disclaimer Regarding Links to Other Sites
