Physical, electronic and procedural safeguards are in
place to prevent unauthorized access or disclosure, to preserve data
integrity, and to ensure the appropriate use of information you provide
when using this site. We use industry-standard encryption technology
when collecting or transferring confidential information. At the same

Government records in North Carolina generally are
public in nature. The public policy of the State of North Carolina as
established by the General Assembly is to “provide that, as a general
rule, the public would have liberal access to public records.”
The North Carolina Public Records Law states that
public records “shall mean all documents papers, letters, maps, books,
photographs, films, sound recordings, magnetic or other tapes,
electronic data-processing records, artifacts, or other documentary
material, regardless of physical form or characteristics, made or
received pursuant to law or ordinance in connection with the transaction
of public business by any agency of North Carolina or its
subdivisions.” For information to be confidential, a specific provision
must be made in the law.
If an appropriate request is made to this site for
information that is subject to disclosure by the North Carolina Public
Records Law, the State of North Carolina will be required to disclose
the information requested. Information that may be released includes
your name, e-mail address, telephone number, and physical address.
Note: Any Judicial or Evidentiary
information related to a Worker's Compensation, Torte, or any other
judicial or administrative case handled by the NC Industrial Commission
is exempt from the NC Public Records Law. Information that is subject to
disclosure by the North Carolina Public Records Law is only related to
data that is gathered and stored automatically for security purposes.
Forms, documents or other information stored within the data vault are
NOT subject to disclosure by the North Carolina Public Records Law.
If you include personal information in your e-mail,
we may use that information in responding to your request. E-mail is not
necessarily secure or confidential. Send only the information that is
necessary for us to answer your question or process your request. The
e-mail, too, is subject to the North Carolina Public Records Law, unless
it contains information related to a Worker's Compensation, Torte, or
any other judicial or administrative case handled by the NC Industrial
Commission. Back to Top
