City of Biloxi Privacy Policy

Thank you for visiting the City of Biloxi online. To keep the public updated on city issues, initiatives, and events, the city uses a website, complemented by social media platforms, an email campaign (Bmail), and a texting service (B-Alert) for emergency advisories.

City Website

The City’s website is designed to serve as a source of relevant information about Biloxi and its many opportunities. The city makes every effort to keep information on the site accurate and timely.

The city website also employs an SSL certificate as well as steps to keep the site secure and reliable.

Your privacy is very important to us. Accordingly, our policy is to collect no personal information about you when you visit our site, unless you affirmatively choose to make such information available to us.

As far as the information that we do collect, when you visit the web server automatically recognizes the internet domain and the IP address from which you accessed the site; the type of browser and operating system used to access the site; the date, time and duration of the visit; the pages visited; and, if you link to this site from another site, the address of that site.

This information does not result in the identification of your personal e-mail address or other personal information. The city tracks this information to help keep the site relevant and user-friendly. In short, this information helps us improve the site. Only cumulative information is collected, and your personal information is not identified.

The city’s privacy policy does not govern some links on the site. Those links are primarily to public agencies that serve Biloxi and the surrounding communities.



As part of its online efforts, the City of Biloxi offers an e-mail news service about city events, projects, and initiatives. Visitors to the city website may sign up for this free service, known as “Bmail” and must provide an e-mail address to receive this information. All news sent to subscribers is also posted on the website. Subscribers can discontinue their subscription to this news service by clicking on a link at the bottom of any Bmail.


Social Media

The City of Biloxi uses social media platforms: Facebook, YouTube, and Instagram to help relay information to the public. Each have policies governing the use of their platforms, and the city’s Public Affairs Division also monitors these social media platforms.

  • Making or publishing of false, vicious, or malicious statements concerning any employee, the city or its operations.
  • Violent or threatening content.

The administrators of this page, and any social media page such as Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, reserve the right to delete repetitive, off-topic commentary. Obscene comments, threatening comments, or hate speech are prohibited. Spam posts will be removed.
