Privacy Statement

This Web site is designed as a public service and as such we do not collect any personal data without your knowledge.

We do not use Internet Cookies.

We collect no personal information about you unless you voluntarily provide it to us by sending us e-mail.

Our statute allows us to protect the identity of complainants and witnesses. Although we have a very strict policy on how we handle personal information, we cannot guarantee the confidentiality of information you send to us via e-mail because the Internet is not a secure means of communication.

If you volunteer personal information, the federal Privacy Act of 1974 may protect it. However, this information may be considered public record, and may be subject to public inspection and copying if not protected by federal or state law.

In the State of Arizona, laws exist to ensure that government is open, and the public has a right to access most records and information possessed by state government. At the same time, there are exceptions to the public’s right to access public records that serve various needs, including the privacy of individuals. Both state and federal laws provide exceptions.
