    Individually Identifiable Information. The term "individually identifiable information" includes health information and any other information that could reasonably be used to identify you, including your name, address, telephone number, fax number, e-mail address, Social Security number, Medicaid ID number, Provider ID number, birth date or any other unique identifying number, characteristic or code, as well as demographic information collected from an individual.

    Information Voluntarily Provided By You. This web site collects  information from you in three different ways: through e-mails, a registration feature and an authentication feature.

    Other Confidential Information. The following information is also confidential under the North Dakota Open Records law and will not be released except as specifically authorized by North Dakota or federal statute, rule, or regulation, or by the owner of the information: credit, debit, or electronic fund transfer card numbers, and any account number at a bank or other financial institution.

    Registration. To engage in certain online transactions and access restricted online information, providers will be required to register with the portal by submitting your SSN/FEIN and Provider Number as well as some additional demographic information about your organization administrator.

    Authentication. The authentication method used for granting authorized users access to secure content requires authorized Members to use their Member ID and Personal Identification Number (PIN) and all other authorized users to use their User ID and password.

    This website does not use "cookies." However, the site uses temporary session cookies to allow users to interact with the portal and to use online features. Session cookies do not allow us to personally identify a user. They are stored only in memory and are deleted when the user's browser is shut down.

    This site does collect and indefinitely store your Internet Protocol (IP) address, (which does not identify you as an individual), as well as information about the date and time of your visit, whether a file you have requested exists, and how many bytes of information were transmitted to you over the Web from this site. We use your IP address to assess the frequency of visits to this site and the popularity of its various pages and functions. We will not attempt to match any individually identifiable information that you provide to us with your IP address, unless required to do so in conjunction with a criminal or civil investigation.

    Security. The managers of this web site have taken reasonable steps to safeguard the integrity of the telecommunications and computing infrastructure, including authentication, monitoring, auditing, and encryption. These steps should not be construed in any way as giving business, legal or other advice, or warranting as fail proof, the security of information provided via this web site.

    Links Disclaimer. To provide visitors with certain information, this website provides links to local, other state, and federal government agencies, and web sites of other organizations. A link does not constitute an endorsement of the content, viewpoint, accuracy, opinions, policies, products, services or accessibility of that web site.
