Since 1998, The Arkansas New Hire Reporting Center has provided the convenience
our guide for collecting, storing and using information that can or potentially
could identify an individual user of the Arkansas New Hire Reporting Center Web site.
Such information is commonly referred to as "Personal Information".
What information do we collect?
We collect, monitor and store the following information, which is commonly referred
to as "Traffic Pattern Information": (1) The IP address for the user.
This could be resolved to a domain name that has accessed our Web site (for example,
if you subscribe to America Online, we would know that someone from AOL has accessed
our site, but we would not know which of the millions of AOL users actually accessed
our Web site); (2) The date and time our Web site has been accessed; and (3) The
number of visits we have to our Web site.
Additionally, since we value and welcome your comments and suggestions, we have
a portion of our Web site devoted to soliciting your input (comments). If you take
the opportunity to submit comments, you will be asked to provide your name and e-mail
address. This information will allow us to respond appropriately, if a response
is in fact necessary.
Also, we may collect, monitor and store your name, e-mail address, postal address,
phone number and other domain-related information. You will always know when we
are collecting this information, and disclosure is always voluntary.
We also try to make it easy for you to reach us by e-mail for further information.
If you decide to e-mail us, it is important for you to know that it is likely that
you will intentionally, or perhaps inadvertently, send Personal Information.

Access to certain areas of our Web site are password protected. When you access
your account information in a password protected area, you will be using a secure
server via Secure Sockets Layer (SSL). SSL is a protocol developed by Netscape for

to encrypt data that's transferred over the SSL connection. In other words, SSL
encrypts all information you input before it is sent to us. Both Netscape Navigator

information over the Internet. SSL is widely accepted as being very secure.
The Arkansas New Hire Reporting Center uses its best efforts to promote the security,

we cannot guarantee the security of any information you transmit to us. We cannot
vouch for the security of information sent over and through computers that we do
not administer. Our best efforts for security protocols and keeping up with industry
standards are our pledge to you.
