Privacy Policy

Privacy Statement

Michigan CLASS is sensitive to the need to balance our Participants’ privacy and Michigan State law compliance requirements. Michigan CLASS makes every effort to meet public policy standards requiring access to information pertaining to Local Governments. Michigan CLASS does not share or sell client lists, mailing addresses or e-mail addresses except as required by law and even then, the release is reviewed by the program’s general counsel and finally approved by the Board of Trustees.

Visitors to www.michiganclass.org do generate a “cookie” (a unique identifier used to track visitation) on their computers. Participants using MYACCESS will also generate a “cookie,” which is only used for the purposes of verification during their sessions.

Information contained in this Web site is checked and updated with due diligence on a regular basis. However, data and information on the site may become outdated. Therefore, Michigan CLASS does not assume any liability or guarantee for the timeliness, accuracy and completeness of the information provided. Michigan CLASS uses reasonable efforts to obtain information from sources which it believes to be reliable. Michigan CLASS makes no representation that the information or opinions contained on the site is accurate, reliable or complete. The information on the site is provided for informational purposes only and is subject to change without notice.

In the course of corresponding with our Participants, Michigan CLASS representatives will NEVER ask a Participant to divulge or verify their MYACCESS credentials. All Participant information is stored in a secure database within the United States of America. Access to the database is limited to authorized persons.

Email Usage

Email, as a means of corresponding with Participants, provides numerous operational advantages, such as cost savings, timeliness, and flexibility. From a Participant’s perspective, email affords a faster and more direct means of receiving important Michigan CLASS information, as opposed to regular mail. The Michigan CLASS Board of Trustees encourages the use of e-mail as means of communicating with and distributing materials to Michigan CLASS Participants. 

If a Participant wishes to not receive emails from Michigan CLASS, they may request removal from the distribution list. Such inquiries should be made to Client Services.
