Thank you for visiting North Carolina Industrial Commission and reviewing our Privacy Statement. The statement sets forth the information that is collected from you during your visit as well as the use of that information.
This Statement Addresses the Following:
- Information Collected and Stored Automatically
- Web Site Security
- Public Disclosure
- Links to Other Sites
When you visit our website to browse, read pages, or download information, we automatically collect and store only the following information:
- The Internet domain and IP address from which you access our NCID
- The date and time you access our site
- The pages you visit
- If you linked to NCID from another Web site, the address of that Web site.
NCID uses this information to help us make our site more useful to visitors – to learn about the number of visitors to our site and the types of technology our visitors use.
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 NCID. 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, we employ software programs to monitor network traffic to identify both authorized and unauthorized attempts. This monitoring is related, in part, to attempts to upload or change information or otherwise cause damage. Use of our site constitutes consent to such monitoring. Unauthorized attempts to upload information and/or change information on this website are strictly prohibited and are subject to legal action.
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 NCID 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.
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.
A "persistent" cookie is generally defined as a piece of data that is stored on the user's hard drive. We do not use "persistent" cookies on our website or in our web applications.
"Temporary" or "session" cookies are used on all NCID website pages. These cookies are stored in memory and are only available during an active browser session. Session cookies are also used by some of the applications deployed on our website to temporarily save information entered by a user as long as the user's browser is open. These cookies do not collect personal information on users, and they are erased as soon as you close your web browser. No personally identifiable information about you is maintained as a result of a temporary or session cookie.
You can configure your web browser to accept or decline cookies, or to alert you when cookies are in use. You do not have to accept cookies from us, but if you choose not to, some of the functions on our site may not be available to you.
