Privacy of Personal Information:

In order to protect personal information being gathered, this site has security measures in place including firewalls, encryption, and authenticated access to internal databases where needed. In order to ensure the security of all personal information from customers, that information will be encrypted when being transmitted across the Web. This information includes, but is not limited to names, addresses, phone numbers, e-mail addresses, birth dates, social security numbers, financial information, and any usernames and passwords.

In accordance with the Privacy Act of 1974, JSND will disclose when your Social Security Number is required and how it will be used. Portions of the online system will require your Social Security Number. Your Social Security Number may be provided to other state agencies and partner organizations, and will be used to work with other agencies as mandated by law. Social Security Numbers are used to make financial transactions, including unemployment insurance payments. Social Security Numbers may be used to estimate how many people use JSND programs. These estimates are often necessary when JSND participates in performance reviews for program grants and funding. For security, JSND will not e-mail Social Security Numbers outside designated State of North Dakota firewalls unless the information has been encrypted. JSND will store all Social Security Numbers it gathers in secure databases.

Credit card numbers collected through a Web application will not be stored or retained in any manner. Bank account numbers collected through a Web application will be stored in a secure database. The information may be passed on through intermediate software companies using only secure file transfer methods.

E-mail addresses will be collected from an application only if a response is necessary to correspond with customers or verify data transmission. JSND may forward your message to another agency for appropriate action.

Cookies will be used under specific conditions. A cookie is a text file stored on a customer's personal computer (PC) to maintain an uninterrupted transaction with the application. There are two types of cookies: a memory cookie and a hard cookie. Memory cookies will be deleted at the end of the session, and are specifically used when viewing or purchasing products or services through the Web.
