Web Site Security

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 time, it is possible that a security breach may occur.

 

For general website security purposes and to ensure that our site remains available to all users, all State of North Carolina sites employ software programs to monitor network traffic to identify both authorized and unauthorized attempts.

Public Disclosure

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.

 

E-mail

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
