    City Adopts Privacy Principles to Protect the Public

    SEATTLE – City Council unanimously approved a resolution today to provide a framework for dealing with current and future technologies that impact privacy. This is a major step with the adoption of six privacy principles guiding the actions the City will take when collecting and using information from the public. The Council also established an August 2015 reporting deadline for City departments to create a “Privacy Toolkit,” a package of actionable privacy standards to enable City departments to comply with today’s adopted principles relating to privacy.

    “We want to assure the public we are implementing policies to ensure the security and protection of your personal information,” said Councilmember Bruce Harrell, chair of the Council’s Public Safety, Civil Rights, and Technology Committee. “Seattle’s Privacy Initiative is working to strike that right balance between protecting your personal information, providing services and being transparent with the public.”

    “This clear support by the Council today underscores the city’s leadership in protecting the privacy of those who use City services,” said Mayor Ed Murray. “This is a solid first step in our comprehensive framework to reinforce public trust, even as we continue to invest in new technologies.”

    “The Privacy Principles adopted today are an important benchmark in Seattle’s innovative Digital Privacy Initiative, the first of its kind among major cities in the United States,” said Councilmember Mike O’Brien. “In our increasingly digital age, these principles serve as a guide for our work in local government in order to help build and maintain trust with the people we represent.”

    Already, a City-wide team representing several departments has been examining best practices relating to data collection, use and disposal. A Privacy Advisory Committee has met several times since the Initiative kicked off in November 2014, comprised of academics, practitioners, lawyers and community advocates, to provide outside expertise and advice to the City’s effort. Both groups helped create today’s approved privacy principles, which relate to the City’s collection, protection, use, retention, sharing and disposal of personal information.

    View the approved Privacy Principles here. More information about the Seattle Privacy Initiative is available here.

    Seattle poised to be leader in protecting resident privacy

    SEATTLE (Feb. 3, 2015) – The City of Seattle has taken the initial step toward becoming one of the first cities in the nation to establish its own privacy principles to protect personal information.

    “Technology is constantly changing, and protecting the privacy of those who interact with the city is of utmost importance,” said Seattle Mayor Ed Murray. “The City of Seattle collects personal information in many City processes, such as paying a utility bill or in the form of video from our public safety departments. It’s critical that we strike the right balance between protecting individual privacy and the public’s need for a transparent and open local government.”

    “We are demonstrating our commitment to the privacy and security of your personal information,” said Councilmember Bruce Harrell, chair of the Council’s Public Safety, Civil Rights, and Technology Committee. “This is tremendous work by DoIT and the interdepartmental work team to bring consistency and accountability in our day-to-day interactions with the public.”

    In November 2014 the City launched its Privacy Initiative, led by the Seattle Police Department and Department of Information Technology, to define how the City collects, uses, and disposes of data in a manner that balances the needs of the City to conduct its business with individual privacy, and builds public trust.

    “These principles are an important benchmark in Seattle’s innovative Digital Privacy Initiative. I look forward to working with City Council to adopt these principles by resolution in order to enshrine our values around privacy and to guide our future decisions and actions with regards to our people’s personal information,” said Councilmember Mike O’Brien, who helped raise the issue of digital privacy at Council in 2013.

    The first of three deliverables, a set of privacy principles, was transmitted to the Seattle City Council today. These principles establish a core foundation from which City employees will approach decision making when doing work that involves personal data and information. All city departments will use these principles to inform the collection, use, management and sharing of the public’s personal information.

    The proposed privacy principles include:

    1. We value your privacy.

    Keeping your personal information private is very important. We consider potential risks to the well-being of you and the public before collecting, using and disclosing your personal information.

    2. We collect and keep only what we need.

    We only collect information that we need to deliver City services and keep it as long as we are legally required or there is a valid business purpose. When it is practical, we tell you when we are collecting this information.

    3. Using your information.

    When appropriate, we make available information about the ways we use your personal information at the time we collect it. If possible, we will give you a choice about how we use your information.

    4. We are accountable.

    We manage personal information in a manner that is consistent with our commitments and as required by law. We protect your personal information by restricting improper access and by securing our computing resources from threats.

    5. Sharing information.

    We follow federal and state laws about information disclosure whenever we work with outside governmental agencies to protect our community and in answering public disclosure requests. Business partners and contracted vendors who receive or collect personal information from us or for us to deliver City services must agree to our privacy requirements.

    6. Accuracy is important.

    We work to maintain and use accurate personal information for City business. When practical, we will work to correct inaccurate personal information. We also instruct our partners and contracted vendors to follow the same guidelines.

    These privacy principles were created by an interdepartmental team comprised of more than 10 departments and an external Privacy Advisory Committee comprised of community members and privacy experts from private industry, law firms, and academia.

    Construction Jobs Bill Unanimously Recommended by Council Committee

    SEATTLE – A City Council committee today unanimously recommended adoption of a jobs bill to help people living in economically distressed areas establish and secure careers in the construction industry.

    The committee approved “priority hire” legislation to support pre-apprenticeship and apprenticeship programs and to require that a percentage of the work on City-funded capital construction projects costing over $5 million be performed by residents from economically distressed areas of Seattle and King County. Economically distressed areas are indicated by high concentrations of people who are unemployed, without college degrees and living below 200% of the Federal Poverty Level.

    “With this bill, more Seattleites who have faced barriers to getting into construction careers will reap the rewards of both a well-paying job in the short-term and portable skills for the future,” said Councilmember Sally J. Clark, the legislation’s sponsor and chair of the council’s Housing Affordability, Human Services and Economic Resiliency Committee. “I want to thank the many residents and stakeholders who shared their experiences and expertise on this complex and historic legislation.”

    “Using our local tax dollars to put people from communities in our city with higher unemployment to work just makes good sense,” said Councilmember Mike O’Brien, co-sponsor of the legislation. “This is a great step today and an acknowledgement of the incredible community organizing that began years ago to bring this bill to fruition.”

    “This is a landmark social justice bill to keep jobs in Seattle and creating opportunities and pathways to success for economically disadvantaged groups. We are trying to create a new pathway that has not been there before,” said Councilmember Bruce Harrell. “I want to recognize community leaders like Michael Woo from Got Green to Puget Sound Sage and members of the Construction Careers Advisory Committee for helping us make this legislation a reality.”

    “I was shocked to learn that of 33 City-funded projects only 6% of the workers on those projects lived in Seattle; with only 25% being from King County,” said Councilmember Nick Licata. “If we want to reduce environmental impacts of commuting, we must reduce the driving distance of workers driving to their Seattle jobs.”

    In 2013 the Council and Mayor convened a Construction Careers Advisory Committee (CCAC) composed of contractors, sub-contractors, women and minority businesses, community organizations, labor unions, training programs and policy experts. Based on the CCAC’s recommendations, this legislation was developed in partnership with Mayor Murray to increase access to construction jobs for people who have historically not been equally represented in the industry. Today’s legislation creates an ongoing Implementation and Advisory Committee, which will submit an annual report to the Mayor and Council, and in 2016, the Mayor and Council will review the program results.

    In 2012 the City’s public works budget was approximately $220 million, which generated about 446 full-time jobs in construction. A review of 33 City funded projects between 2009-2013 found that 6 percent of the workforce lived in Seattle.

    The legislation will be considered by the Full City Council on Tuesday, January 20 at 2:00 p.m.
