Web Site Privacy Policy Statement




Thank you for visiting the Arizona Department of Water Resources (ADWR) web site and reviewing our web site Privacy Policy. This policy is included to inform you about the information that could be collected online as a result of visiting the ADWR web site. All individual web sites of the State of Arizona are required to contain a Privacy Statement that describes what information is being obtained online, how that information will be used, and what steps are being taken to ensure the security of customer data. Your rights to privacy are of utmost importance to the State of Arizona in building trust and confidence when conducting business through the Internet.


Online Customer Service and Alternatives

The ADWR web site offers online services and access to public information that you might otherwise request in person from ADWR. Our goal is to provide citizens with a more convenient and efficient means in which to interact with our agency. If at any time you choose not to proceed with a transaction offered online, your choice will in no way affect your ability to receive benefits or services another way. If you prefer to deal with us in person, you may do so at ADWR.


Collection and Use of Information


Information That You Provide
ADWR gathers information from online users related to site usage. From time to time, we may ask for further information about you (such as your name, postal address, telephone, fax number and email address) as part of our online surveys/services. This information will be used to enable us to improve our website and to occasionally inform you about important changes to the website and its functionality. This information is not shared, sold or otherwise disseminated by ADWR.

Other information collected by ADWR is only shared with another agency if your inquiry relates to that agency, or is otherwise required by law.

If you choose to provide us with personal information – by filling out a form with your personal information and submitting it to us from this web site – you consent to the use of that information for the purposes stated herein.

ADWR does not use cookies as a general rule. The only exception is for the purpose of identifying users who have previously taken a survey in order to prevent the user from being asked to complete the survey again.

Though ADWR does not specifically request information from children, as a State agency we would comply with the Children’s Online Privacy Policy Protection Act of 1998 (“COPPA”), requiring parental consent before collecting any personal information from any individual under the age of 13. The text of COPPA is available at

Security Practices
ADWR allows customers to pay certain fees online by the use of a credit card. ADWR accepts only the pertinent credit card authorization data necessary to validate and fulfill the transaction. The cardholder’s name, credit card number and expiration date are obtained by ADWR and used only to complete the credit card payment portion of the online transaction.

The ADWR web site contains links to various other web sites operated by other government agencies, nonprofit organizations and private businesses. When you link to another site, you are no longer on the ADWR web site and this Privacy Policy will not apply to other sites.
