This privacy policy explains what type of information we collect, what we do with the information, and how you can update and control the use of the information you provide.  This policy may change in the future, so please check back frequently.

What We Collect and Store Automatically:

When you visit our Web site we automatically gather your IP address, the date and time of your visit, and the pages you accessed. Your IP address is a 12-digit number assigned to your computer by your Internet Service Provider each time you log on the Internet.  The IP address enables sites that you visit to send data such as this Web page to your computer.  We use your IP address to help diagnose problems with our server, to administer our Web site, and to help us create a more useful site for you.  We will not obtain any personally identifying information about you when you visit our site, unless you specifically choose to provide such information to us. 

The information you provide on surveys, promotions and contests on our web site will be used for internal purposes, including developing Web site information and services that you may find helpful.

We preserve the content of your E-mail, your E-mail address and our response to you, so that we can more efficiently handle any follow-up questions you may have. 

Data Sold or Shared with Others (Freedom of Information Act)

We will never sell your information to third party providers. Information we collect, however, may be made available to third parties under the Freedom of Information Act unless specifically exempted by law. 

At times we may forward your E-mail to another government employee or agency better equipped to help you.  Additionally, we may share your E-mail with law enforcement agencies.

We do not knowingly solicit data from children.  We recognize that protecting children’s identities and privacy online is important and that the responsibility to do so rests with the online industry, with the government and with parents.

You are able to request a copy of the personal information we have collected about you, and request changes if you find it inaccurate, or remove yourself from our email or fax distribution list at any time.  We want to make sure that the information that we have about you is up-to-date and accurate, and therefore allow you to correct your personal information.  Simply contact us by E-mail at:  Webmaster@arkansashighways.com.

This site has security measures in place to protect the loss, misuse and alteration of the information under our control.  We have internal controls to assure that the information we have learned about you is as accurate as possible.  In addition, we regularly review our practices to make certain that we uphold our pledge to you to act responsibly.  If you discover a privacy abuse, we urge you to contact us so that an appropriate investigation can ensue.  Please contact us by E-mail at:  Webmaster@arkansashighways.com
