monitor network traffic to identify unauthorized attempts to upload or change

Disclosure(return to index) All information
collected at this site becomes a public record unless an exemption in law
Chapter 192 contains the Oregon Public Records Law.
In the State of Oregon, laws exist to ensure that
government is open and that the public has a right to access appropriate
records and information possessed by state government. At the same time, there
are exceptions to the public's right to access public records that serve
various needs including the privacy of individuals. Both state and federal laws
provide exceptions. We may request personally identifiable information from you
in order to provide requested services, but such information is handled as it
would be on an in-person visit to a governmental office.
Personal Information Inspection(return to index) You have the right to
review information collected about you by this site. Contact the office that
provides the service you requested.

Absent applicability of any
exemption from disclosure under the Public Records Law to name or address
information contained in the office database(s), the office is required to
provide that information to requesters, including marketers, upon request. As
with all public records requests, the office is authorized to recover its costs
in responding to these requests in accordance with ORS 192.440(3) and rules
adopted by the office establishing such fees."
Information and Nondisclosure(return to index) "Personal
information" is information about a natural person that is readily
identifiable to that individual, such as an individual's name, address and
telephone number. Such personal information may be exempt from disclosure if
disclosure would constitute an unreasonable invasion of privacy under the
circumstances. A domain name or Internet Protocol (IP) address is not
considered personal information. Most information collected by state government
is assumed to be open to the public unless specifically exempted. ORS Chapter
192 contains the Oregon Public Records Law. Under this law, individuals are
permitted to request that public officials not disclose a public record that
contains their home address and telephone number under certain circumstances.
ORS 192.445 and OAR 137-004-0800 specify how to request nondisclosure.
