LAGERS Privacy Policy & Disclaimer

Protection of individual privacy is of utmost concern to the Missouri Local Government Employees’ Retirement System (“LAGERS"). LAGERS is committed to maintaining the confidentiality, integrity and security of any personal information about our members and users that is not already publicly available or that is not required to be disclosed. Personal information collected by LAGERS will be used only for the purpose for which it is collected. LAGERS is subject to laws that require governmental operations are open and that the public has a right to access appropriate records and information possessed by it. At the same time, there are exceptions to the public's right to access certain public records. Except as authorized by law, or by the member, such information will not be disclosed to other persons or organizations. By visiting or using this website, you acknowledge that you accept the practices and policies outlined in this Privacy Policy and you hereby consent that we will collect, use, and share your information in the following ways:

COLLECTION OF INFORMATION

We do not collect any personal information about you unless you voluntarily participate in an activity that asks for information (i.e., sending an e-mail or entering the secure parts of our web site to view personal account information, etc.). To view member specific information you need to provide a login ID and password ("Registration Information"). Access to your Registration Information is strictly restricted to LAGERS employees and contractors working on behalf of LAGERS who are bound by confidentiality obligations.

SHARING OF INFORMATION

Any information supplied by our users is considered private and will not be made available to others for any purpose. LAGERS is the sole owner of any personal information collected and does not sell, share, rent or otherwise distribute any of this information.

SECURITY

When LAGERS asks a member to enter sensitive information in the secure areas of this website, (such as user ID, password, or the member's Social Security number, etc.), that information is protected.

USE OF COOKIES

We do use a cookie to keep a user authenticated while they are at this site. Your web browser may allow you to be notified when you are receiving a cookie, giving you the choice to accept it or not. If you prefer not to receive cookies while browsing our website, you can set your browser to warn you before accepting cookies and refuse the cookie when your browser alerts you to its presence.

LAGERS reserves the right to change, modify or update this policy at any time without notice. Use of information we collect is subject to the Privacy Policy in effect at the time the information is collected. Any changes will be posted on this Site.

Use of Email An email transmission may be stored, copied, altered, intercepted or destroyed at any point during transmission. It may pass through private and/or public networks with varying levels of security. In these and other ways, the privacy and integrity of the email transmission may or could be compromised. You should never use regular email to transmit a Social Security number or other confidential data. LAGERS will not send any confidential information to you by email. We will not send you an email that requests confidential information from you, such as your Social Security Number, your user ID and password, or other confidential information. If you do contact LAGERS via email, we may preserve the content of your message, your email address and LAGERS’ response so LAGERS can efficiently respond to questions you might have. This is also done for legal and regulatory purposes. However, we may send you email that requests you to log in to our secure Member or Employer Access account to view specific information about your account. Such emails will always direct you to www.molagers.org and to log in to your secure account. If you receive an email that directs you to another website or asks for confidential information, do not respond and contact LAGERS immediately at 1-800-447-4334.
