When e-mails are received, we store them on our server so that we can respond to them electronically. If your request can best be handled by staff from another agency (such as the Arizona Department of Economic Security, for example), your e-mail may be forwarded to that agency. Unless otherwise required by law, any information you send us will be used only to respond to you or investigate your complaint and will not be provided to parties outside of the Arizona State government.

The policy of this agency is to not collect personal information from ADHS server log files. However, for site security purposes and to ensure that this web service remains available to all users, log files may be used to help identify individuals engaging in unauthorized attempts to access or damage the contents of this site.
