By using the information, services and products available through this web site, you agree to be bound by all of FGUA’s terms and conditions of use as set forth herein. The terms and conditions set forth in the Terms of Use and Privacy Policy may be updated from time to time without notice to you. It is your responsibility to review it from time to time to be aware of any such change. Your continued use of this service will indicate your agreement to any such change. Please note that the FGUA is not responsible for the content or privacy practices of web sites whose contents are not controlled by the FGUA, whether the FGUA links to them as “outside sites” or not.

Public records

Florida has a very broad public records law. As a result, any written communication created or received by the FGUA officials and employees will be made available to the public and media, upon request, unless otherwise exempt. Furthermore, under Florida law, email addresses are public records. If you do not want your email address released in response to a public records request, do not send electronic mail to this entity. Instead, contact our office by phone or in writing.

Security

Data transmission over the Internet is not guaranteed to be 100% secure. While we strive to protect your personal information, the FGUA cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information transmitted to us or received from our online products or services. Once we receive a transmission, we make our best effort to ensure it is secure on our systems.

The access number you use may not be a local phone call (even though it may be in the same area code as your phone number) and you may be subject to long distance fees or other charges. We advise you to check the local telephone service to verify whether your access number is a local charge and if additional communication fees may apply.
