Our privacy policy explains our information practices when you provide PII to us, whether collected online or offline, or when you visit us online to browse, obtain information, or conduct a transaction.

The ACHD does not collect PII about you when you visit our website, unless you choose to provide such information to us. Submitting PII through our website is voluntary. By doing so, you are giving the ACHD your permission to use the information for the stated purpose. However, not providing certain information may result in the ACHD’s inability to provide you with the service you desire.

If you choose to provide us with PII on an ACHD website, through such methods as completing a web form, survey or sending us an email, we will use that information to help us provide you the information or service you have requested or to respond to your message. The information we may receive from you varies based on what you do when visiting our site.

The information requested by the ACHD will be used to respond to your inquiry or to provide you with the service you request.

Many of our programs and websites allow you to send us an email. We will use the information you provide to respond to your inquiry. We will only send you general information via email. We disclose your information where we are legally required to do so in order to comply with applicable law, a judicial proceeding or legal process, such as in response to a court order or a subpoena. We will only keep your personal information for the retention period required or permitted by law.

Third-Party Websites and Applications

The ACHD uses social media websites and other kinds of third-party websites. The ACHD uses social media websites to interact with the public. Social media websites are used to publicize ACHD events, meetings, traffic notifications and engage with members of the public. The ACHD also uses web measurement and customization technologies to measure the number of visitors to our websites and their various sections and to help make our websites more useful to visitors. In such cases, the third-party application may request an email address, username, password, and geographic location (e.g., State, region, or ZIP code) for account registration purposes. The ACHD does not use third-party websites to solicit and collect PII from individuals. Any PII passively collected (i.e., not solicited) by the third-party website will not be transmitted or stored by the ACHD; no PII will be disclosed, sold or transferred to any other entity outside the ACHD, unless required for law enforcement purposes or by statute, a judicial proceeding or legal process, such as in response to a court order or a subpoena.

The ACHD uses various types of online surveys to collect opinions and feedback. If you do not participate in a survey, you will still have access to the identical information and resources on the website as those who do take the survey. The ACHD may use other limited-time surveys for specific purposes, which are explained at the time they are posted.

The ACHD retains the data from survey results for the retention period required or permitted by law.
