Personal Information and Choice

You may choose whether you provide personal information on-line.

Personal information is information about a person that readily identifies that specific individual. Personal information includes such things as an individual's name, address, and phone number. A domain name or Internet Protocol address is not considered personal information.

We do not collect personal information about you unless you voluntarily provide it to us by sending us e-mail, participate in a survey, or complete an on-line form. You have the option of contacting the Division of Child Support without contacting us by e-mail, participating in a survey or providing any personal information using an on-line form. Your choice to not participate in these activities does not affect your ability to browse the Division of Child Support web site or to read or download any information provided on the site.

State law and the federal Privacy Act of 1974 protect personal information requested on the web site or volunteered by the user. However, this information becomes a public record once you provide it, and the public may inspect or copy it if state or federal law does not protect it.

If you believe that we are using your personal information for a purpose other than what you intended when you submitted it, you may contact the Public Disclosure Coordinator for the Division of Child Support as shown in the Contact Information Section of this statement.

It is not the intent of this site to collect information from children. However, any information collected from or voluntarily given to us by children either on-line or by e-mail will be treated the same as information given by an adult, and may be subject to public access.
