Policy

This Privacy Policy Statement is provided pursuant to A.R.S. §41-3901 et seq. and the Arizona Statewide Privacy Policy.

Provided Services

This site (aka application) is provided as a service of the Arizona Department of Education (ADE) in support of educational activities in the state of Arizona. This site offers services online that might otherwise be conducted in person or by mail. Our goal is to provide citizens with a more convenient and efficient method to interact with the Arizona Department of Education. If at any time you choose not to proceed with a transaction offered through the Arizona Department of Education web site, your choice will in no way affect your ability to receive benefits or services.

Collection and Use of Information

The ADE and this site do not collect information about you unless you voluntarily participate in an activity that asks for such information. In other words, this site collects personal user information only when voluntarily submitted by the user. The information collected on this site is the same information that would be requested if you were conducting business with the Arizona Department of Education in person at an ADE office.

The state of Arizona and the Arizona Department of Education take seriously their responsibility to maintain the privacy of all users. Personal and identifying information submitted to or through this site will be safeguarded as required by federal and state laws, such as the Federal Privacy Act of 1974 and FERPA.

Please be aware that per A.R.S. §39-121 et seq., information submitted to this site becomes a matter of public record. The State or Agency may be required to release this information, including personal information, in response to a public records request and in response to warrants, subpoenas and/or other court orders; however, sensitive information covered by the aforementioned federal laws and other applicable laws or statues will not be disclosed. Such information will only be released upon request. Information in which a user of the site has privacy interests (e.g,, home address) would not be disclosed.

Should you have any questions, contact the ADE directly about the records we keep and our use of information.

Cookies and Tokens

This site uses cookies and tokens to facilitate login between sections of this site, other approved ADE sites (or applications), and select local education authority systems. Cookies and/or tokens are small files stored by your browser containing such things as login information, domain, or I.P. address. You can control the usage of cookies or delete them through settings in your browser. Besides facilitating account authorization (login), the anonymous data collected is used for analytical purposes solely to improve the experience of those using this site.

Privacy Policy Statement Subject to Change

This policy may be updated or revised from time to time, so please check back periodically in order to receive advance notice of any substantive changes to the manner in which the information you disclose on this web site may be collected, used, or disseminated.

Security

The ADE and its consultants, as developer and manager of this site, have taken numerous steps to safeguard the integrity of its computer systems and networks. These steps include, but are not limited to individual authentication, the security of transmitted data, security monitoring, auditing, and encryption of your information. Security methods and measures have been integrated into the design, implementation and day-to-day practices of the entire site or application.

Legal Authorizing Statue

This site is subject to A.R.S. §41-3532, which references Section 508 of the Federal Rehabilitation Act, and the Arizona Statewide Policy on Website Accessibility.

External Links

This site may contain links to other systems, applications or web sites. These links may include, for example, web sites operated by other government agencies, nonprofit organizations and private businesses. When you click on a non-ADE link, you will no longer be on an ADE-controlled site; the external site's policies and terms will apply to your activity thereon, not ADE's. Links to external, non-ADE sites are offered solely for your convenience. The State of Arizona is not responsible for and has no control over the policies or content of any third party sites.
