The purpose of the statement is to inform visitors to the Oklahoma Board of Nursing Web site about the collection and use of personally identifiable information.
Definition of Personally Identifiable Information
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.
The Oklahoma Board of Nursing takes every precaution to protect our members' information. When you submit sensitive information via our Web site, your information is protected both online and off-line.
When we ask you to enter sensitive information (such as a credit card number), that information is SSL encrypted, which provides a high level of security for the transfer of that information. While on a secure page, such as the billing section of license renewal form, the lock icon on the bottom of Web browsers such as Netscape Navigator and Microsoft Internet Explorer becomes locked, or open, when you are just 'surfing'.
While we use SSL encryption to protect sensitive information online, we also do everything in our power to protect your information off-line. All of your information, not just the sensitive information mentioned above, is restricted in our offices. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, our billing clerk or a customer service representative) are granted access to personally identifiable information. Furthermore, ALL employees are kept up-to-date on our security and privacy practices. Any time new policies are added, our employees are notified and/or reminded about the importance we place on privacy, and what they can do to ensure your information is protected. Finally, the servers that store personally identifiable information are in a secure environment, in our offices in a locked room.
If you have any questions about the security at our Web site, you can send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
