Who we are

You are visiting the official website for The Office of the District Attorney for Oklahoma District 27, which encompasses Adair, Cherokee, Sequoyah and Wagoner Counties in Oklahoma. The web address is www.da27.org.

Purpose

The purpose of this statement is to inform users of DA27.org about the collection and use of personally identifiable information.

What personal data we collect and why we collect it

For the purposes of this statement “personally identifiable information” means any information relating to an identified or identifiable individual who is the subject of the information.

Personally Identifiable Information Not Routinely Collected

Citizens are not asked to routinely provide personal information to visit our website or to download information. Government agencies may request personally identifiable information from you in order to provide requested specialized services, but such information is handled as it would be on an in-person visit to a government office.

Personally Identifiable Information Available From Government Websites

Access to personally identifiable information in public records at state and local levels of government in Oklahoma is controlled by Oklahoma law. Information that is generally available under Oklahoma law may be posted for electronic access through DA27.org.

Comments

When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP (Internet Protocol) address and browser user agent string to help spam detection. The IP numbers of computers (servers) used to visit DA27.org are noted as part of our statistical analysis on use of our website so we may better design services and improve access to them. However, the site does not attempt to obtain or retain personally identifiable information on individual users and associate them with IP addresses.

An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: https://automattic.com/privacy/. After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.

Media

If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.

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. We have no control over the content or security of such sites, and we offer no guarantees or protections for embedded links to other sites.

Some of the websites to which we provide links may also display advertising. District 27 makes no warranties with regard to advertising on other websites linked to this website. 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.

Analytics

Cookies are required for search engines such as Google and Bing to find and analyze websites so that users can find the products and services they’re searching. Google Analytics uses first-party cookies to track visitor interactions as in our case, where they are used to collect information about how visitors use our site. We then use the information to compile reports and to help us improve our site. Google Analytics collects information anonymously. It reports website trends without identifying individual visitors. Users have the ability to opt out of Google Analytics without affecting their ability to use our site.

“Cookies”

A “cookie” is a small text file that a website can place on your computer’s hard drive to collect information about your activities on the site during your visit. The “cookie” transmits this information back to the website’s computer to simplify or enhance user experience. You probably won’t know that cookies are being placed on your computer. If you want to block a website’s ability to track your activity, you can set your browser to warn you when a website attempts to place a cookie. This Privacy Policy covers the use of cookies by DA27.org only and does not cover the use of cookies by any third-party sites linked to this website.

Who we share your data with

We do not sell or share e-mail addresses shared with DA27.org to third parties for marketing purposes. The information we collect is subject to the access and confidentiality provisions of Oklahoma Code and federal law. E-mail or other information requests sent to DA27.org may be maintained so we can respond to the request, forward that request to the appropriate party, communicate updates to the page that may be of interest to citizens, or to provide the DA27.org web designer with valuable user feedback to assist in improving the site. Individuals will be provided with the ability to “opt out” of any communication regarding new service updates at any time.

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

What rights you have over your data

If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

Where we send your data

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.

Any third parties responsible for this information are committed to the same principles and are required by contract to follow the same policies and guidelines as the state of Oklahoma in protecting this information.
