Automatic Collection of Certain Information

No personally identifiable information is collected from visitors who simply browse this site or who download information from it. While our web servers maintain logs of user activity to help us manage the web site, information stored in these logs or in cookies does not identify you personally. The logs store things such as the domain name and IP address from which you accessed our site, the type of browser and operating system you used, the date and time you accessed our site, the pages visited, and the address of the site that you linked to us from (if you linked to our web site from another web site).

We use this information to learn how many visitors we have, where they are coming from, which parts of our web site are of most interest to visitors, and other facts that will help us improve the web site and the services we offer.

If You Send Us Personal Information

Visitors who request services through this site may be required to furnish additional information in order for us to provide the service requested. The additional information collected will be no more specific than if the visitor were requesting the service by any other means, including by telephone or an in-person visit to a Town facility.

If you participate in a survey, send us an email, or submit an online form, your email address and the other information you volunteered will be collected. We may share this information with other governmental agencies or organizations to provide the help you are requesting. We may also use that information to help assess user needs and analyze trends.

If you use this web site for electronic commerce, we may collect, process, and disclose your name, address, and payment information (if applicable) to the extent necessary to complete the online transaction and for record-keeping activities such as billing, permits, and licenses.

Mobile Messaging Terms & Conditions

The Town of Rolesville uses SMS (text messaging) for certain public purposes.  By agreeing to receive text messages, you opt-in to the service.

  • You may choose to cancel the SMS service at any time by texting “STOP”. After you send the SMS message “STOP”, you will receive a confirmation SMS message that you have been unsubscribed and will no longer receive SMS messages from the Town of Roleville.
  • If you want to join again simply reply “UNSTOP”.
  • Neither the Town of Rolesville or mobile carriers are liable for delayed or undelivered messages.
  • As always, message and data rates may apply for any messages you receive or send. If you have any questions about your text plan or data plan, contact your wireless provider.


Some information that you submit to us through this website may be protected by encryption technology, whereas other information may not. Unless a particular webpage on this site indicates that encryption technology is being used, you should not assume that information you submit through that webpage will be secure.

If you submit information to our server through a web page containing visible indicators of active encryption technology, we will take reasonable precautions to safeguard the confidentiality of such information. However, no website can protect itself against all eventualities.

The Town will not be held liable for any injury caused by the disclosure of your information, whether by security breach, accident, inadvertence, or any other act resulting in disclosure.

Use of Cookies

Cookies or other technology may transfer information from this website to your hard disk for record-keeping purposes. Cookies or similar technology can make the internet more useful by storing information about your preferences on a particular site.

The use of cookies or similar technology is an industry standard, and this website, like many others, uses them to provide useful features for our users.

Cookies in and of themselves do not personally identify you, although they do identify your computer. Most browsers are initially set up to accept cookies. If you prefer, you can set your browser to refuse cookies. However, you may not be able to take full advantage of this web site if you do so.

Public Records

The Town of Rolesville is governed by the North Carolina public records laws. This means that the information we receive online will be disclosed to any person making a public records request, unless the record is exempted from disclosure. Only very narrowly defined types of information (such as electronic payment information and Social Security numbers) are exempt from disclosure as public records.

If you have questions about the North Carolina public records laws, refer to NC General Statutes Chapter 132. For purposes of determining whether information is a public record, information sent to us through this website is treated the same as information sent to us by mail or delivered to us in person.

Public Records Requests


No applications on this website specifically solicit information from minors or seek to determine whether the visitor is a minor. Consequently, visitors should be aware that the collection of personal information requested from or volunteered by children online or by email will be treated in the same manner as information given by an adult.

Among other things, this means that it will be public record and therefore will be subject to public access. We ask that parents guide their children when children are asked to provide personal information online. We ask that children get their parents' permission before providing any information to us.
