If you do nothing during your visit but browse through the Immunize Nevada Web portal to read Web pages or download information Immunize Nevada will automatically gather and store certain information about your visit. Your Web browser software transmits most of this information to us; however, this information does not identify you personally.
We automatically collect and store only the following information about your visit:
- The numeric IP address (an IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer whenever you are surfing the Web) from which you access the Immunize Nevada Web portal. Immunize Nevada software can then map these IP addresses into Internet domain names, for example, "xcompany.com" if you use a private Internet access account, or "yourschool.edu" if you connect from a university's domain;
- The type of browser and operating system used to access the Immunize Nevada Web portal;
- The date and time you access the Immunize Nevada Web portal;
- The pages you visit, including graphics loaded from each page and other documents you download, such as PDF (Portable Document Format) files and word processing documents; and
- If you were referred to the Immunize Nevada Web portal from another Web site, Immunize Nevada captures the address of the referring Web site.
Immunize Nevada uses this information to make the Web portal more useful to visitors--to learn about the number of visitors to our site and the types of technology visitors use. We do not use information to track or record information about individuals and their visits.
A "cookie" is a small text file that a Web site can place on your computer's hard drive-in order, for example, to collect information about your activities on the site or to make it possible for you to use an online "shopping cart" to keep track of items you wish to purchase. The cookie transmits this information back to the Web site's computer which, generally speaking, is the only computer that can read it. Most consumers do not know that "cookies" are being placed on their computers when they visit Web sites. If you want to know when this happens, or to prevent it from happening, you can set your browser to warn you when a Web site attempts to place a "cookie" on your computer.
Indirect Collection – Third Party Services
We may employ indirect collection of information and cookies using third party services including, but not necessarily limited to, Google Analytics. These tools and technologies collect and analyze certain types of information, including cookies (both first-party and third-party), IP addresses, device and software identifiers, referring and exit URLs, onsite behavior and usage information, feature use metrics and statistics, usage and purchase history, MAC Address, mobile unique device ID, and other similar information. Additionally, we may use Google Analytics demographics and conversion tools. Through these tools and technologies, aggregated and anonymized data related to the demographics and interests of users is collected and utilized to improve our products, services and sites. Conversion data allows us to understand whether a user completes a transaction. The Google Analytics data does not contain personally identifiable information (PII) and cannot be associated with a specific user. You may opt out of all Google Analytics data collection by clicking here and following Google’s instructions.
Voluntary Personal Information Submission
If you choose to identify yourself by sending Immunize Nevada or a state government employee an e-mail, registering for a Immunize Nevada subscription, participating in a contest or other promotion, or by using online forms, some personal data may be collected; however, that data will only be used for limited purposes.
Immunize Nevada and its related state agencies may ask you to voluntarily provide personal information under the following circumstances:
- Immunize Nevada and the various state agencies it serves may ask for, without limitation, items such as your e-mail address and/or phone number in order to process various applications, login credentials for authentication processes available through Immunize Nevada - for example: requests for site feedback, surveys, and contests or other promotions.
All of these activities are purely voluntary. You will always have the option of whether to perform the transaction and provide this information. Please understand, however, that in order to perform certain online services, you will be required to provide some personal information.
If you choose to provide Immunize Nevada or a state agency employee with personal information, the requestor will use that information to respond to your message. Immunize Nevada and state government employees treat e-mails the same way they treat letters.
- We only share the information you give us with another government agency if your inquiry relates to that agency, or as otherwise required by law.
- Immunize Nevada does not collect information for commercial marketing. It will not sell or rent your personally identifiable information to anyone.
Restrictions On Use and Disclosure of Personal Data
Immunize Nevada will only send personally identifiable information about you to other companies, agencies, or people when we have your consent to share the information or when doing so is necessary to perform a service you request or for other transactions authorized or required by law.
- Immunize Nevada is not directed to children younger than 12, and requires a legal guardian in order to collect personal information from children.
- Immunize Nevada encourages that parents, guardians or teachers are involved in children's Internet explorations. It is particularly important for parents to guide their children when children are asked to provide personal information online.
- Immunize Nevada does not sell products or services for purchase by children.
- In the event children unknowingly provide information through the Immunize Nevada Web portal or contact form, it is only used to enable us to respond to the writer and not to create profiles of children.
Public Disclosure and Open Records Law
The state of Nevada government is required to maintain many documents under the Nevada Access to Public Records Act for archival and historical purposes; however, it does not collect personal information for any purpose other than to respond to you or for other purposes required by law.
When you provide personally identifiable information to state agencies through Immunize Nevada to receive requested specialized services, such information is handled as it would be on an in-person visit to a government office, and subject to the laws, regulations, practices, and procedures of the respective agency.
Some governmental agencies may already have, or may acquire, personally identifiable information through the normal functions of government. Nevada law governs the use of this information under the Nevada Public Records Act. If state or federal law treats information as public domain, a state agency may choose to make the record available through Immunize Nevada, in much the same manner as the agency would make a record available to a member of the public who visits the agency in person.
Immunize Nevada is committed to ensuring the integrity of the information and systems it maintains. As such, Immunize Nevada has instituted security measures for all information systems under our control in a best effort to ensure that information will not be lost, misused, or altered.
For site security purposes, and to ensure that our Internet services remain available to all users, Immunize Nevada uses software programs to monitor traffic to identify unauthorized attempts to upload or change information or otherwise cause damage. In the event of authorized law enforcement investigations and pursuant to any required legal process, information from these sources may be used to help identify an individual.
