This policy lets you know how we handle information we learn about you from your visit to our website. The information we receive depends on what you do when you visit our site.
We do not collect personally identifying information about you unless you provide it voluntarily.
If you merely browse our Website, by reading, printing or downloading information or documents such as brochures, forms or press releases, no personally identifying information will be collected about you. The information we collect (as do most web sites) are:
- The Internet Service Provider (ISP) through which you access the Internet.
- The Internet protocol (IP) address of the computer you are using
- The browser software that you are using.
- The operating system that you are using.
- The date and time you visit our site.
- The Web pages that you visit on our site .
- The address (URL) of the previous Web site you were visiting, if you linked to us from another Web site.
We use this information for statistical purposes only to help us make our site more useful.
If you decide to send us an electronic mail message (e-mail), or submit information via one of our interactive forms, the message will usually contain your return e-mail address. If you include personally-identifying information in your e-mail because you want us to address issues specific to your situation, we may use that information in responding to your request. This may require that we share the information with another state agency if the other state agency’s participation is necessary to effectively respond to your request / inquiry. All collected information will be a closed record to the extent allowed by local law.
Also, e-mail is not necessarily secure against interception. Please send only information necessary to help us process your request.
On some of our Web pages we offer interactive forms that let you voluntarily submit identifying information about you or your organization/business. All submitted information is used only for the expressed purposes for which it is intended.
