Secure transmission

For secured-data transmission, this site uses the industry standard encryption software, Secure Socket Layer (SSL). The URL (website address) in your browser will change to “HTTPS” instead of “HTTP” when this security feature is invoked. Your browser may also display a lock or key symbol on its task bar to indicate invoked secure transmission.

If these indicators are not present, any information is susceptible to interception by other parties. Internet email communication may not be secure. If you are communicating sensitive information, you might want to consider sending it in by postal mail.

Links to other sites

This site has links to other websites as a convenience to our visitors. These include links to websites operated by other government agencies and nonprofit organizations. When you use one of these links, you are no longer on this site and this Privacy Notice will not apply. When you link to another website, you are subject to the privacy policy of that new site.

What personal data we collect and why we collect it


This site and its associated YouTube Channel do not allow the posting of comments. Therefore, there is no collection of any personal data often associated with posted comments.


This site does not use forms to collect any personal information from visitors.


Media, such as photos, may include personal data such as the location where the photo was taken. Visitors to this website are not permitted to upload media to it.


We use anonymous cookies to prevent users from seeing the same popup repetitively in an attempt to make our users experience more pleasant while still delivering time sensitive messaging. This may result in cookies being saved for an extended period of time. These are non-tracking cookies used only by our popups. The accessibility toolbar sets cookies to maintain awareness of the user’s selected accessibility options. If the toolbar is not in use, WP Accessibility does not set any cookies.

Visitors to our site have the option to use browser settings, or installing extensions, to block cookies.

We have no control over any tracking by Google of visitors to our YouTube Channel.

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website. An example is embedded weather information.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.


By visiting this website to browse or download information, we automatically collect and store the standard data collected by all Web server software. We do not track individual user navigation choices. The information collected may include any or all of the following:

  • The Internet Protocol (IP) address and domain name used (but not the email address). The IP address is a numerical identifier assigned either to your Internet service provider or directly to your computer. We use the Internet IP to respond to your browser request.
  • The domain name server assigned on the Internet to your IP address, if there is one. Example:
  • The type of browser and operating system you used.
    • ​Example: Windows 7; IE 10.0.7.
  • The date and time you visited this site.
  • The Web pages or services you accessed at this site.
  • The website you visited prior to coming to this website.
    • ​Note: This is included so that summary analysis can be done on how visitors get to your site. For example: From a search engine, from a link on another site, etc.

Some plug-ins and widgets used for format and content also may collect data on visitors. An example is pop-ups, which may be anonymously tracked for views and conversions. WP Accessibility does not collect any private information about users or visitors.

Where possible, we have opted out of having plug-ins and widgets collect data.

What rights you have over your data

Visitors to this site do not log-in or have the ability to leave comments. Therefore, we do not have any collected, personal data for you to request. A domain name or Internet Protocol (IP) address is not considered personal information.
