Privacy Notice

We respect your privacy.

The Oklahoma Department of Commerce welcomes visitors to its website and is grateful to subscribers of our various e-mail notices and newsletters. While we collect various information about visitors and their website and e-mail activity, we do not share that information with anyone outside the agency, and we carefully protect the information to prevent anyone else from accessing it illegally.

Website Data Collection

When you visit our website, we can tell what your IP address is, what type of browser you’re using, whether or not you have javascript enabled on your computer, and the screen resolution of your monitor. In most cases, we do not know you by name or e-mail address. (See “E-mail Marketing Data Collection” below for exceptions.) The information collected helps us to build and maintain a website that works for you. We also collect aggregate data for all of our website visitors that tells us what the most frequently visited pages are; most common clickpaths; what search engines are being used to access our site; the time spent on the site; and the most frequent entry and exit pages.

While on the site, we use cookies to record session information, such as information a visitor may have entered into a form; to record user-specific information on what pages users access or visit; and to customize Web page content based on visitors’ browser type or other information that the visitor sends.

All of this data is used in aggregate to help us continually improve the website and deliver content and functionality that visitors will find useful.

We also have forms on the site that collect visitor information. These forms include newsletter and e-alert subscription forms; lead generation forms; event registration forms; and registration forms to access premium content. Information provided on these forms is for internal use only and not shared with anyone outside the Oklahoma Department of Commerce, with one exception. For events that Commerce co-sponsors with another organization, we might share the registration information with event coordinators from the co-sponsoring agency so they may communicate event details to registrants.

E-mail Marketing Data Collection

When Commerce send e-mail newsletters, event invitations and reminders, and similar announcements through our e-mail marketing system, we can tell if the recipient opened the e-mail and whether the recipient clicked a link in the e-mail. Further, we can tell if the recipient forwarded the e-mail, though we cannot tell who the forwarded e-mail was sent to.

Our distribution lists are compiled through online subscription forms on the Commerce website, through personal requests for inclusion on certain mailing lists, and through contacts made with Commerce staff.

Each e-mail newsletter/alert includes an unsubscribe link near the bottom of the page. E-mail recipients may also contact us at info@okcommerce.gov or 800-879-6552 to be removed from a mailing list.

At no time will Commerce send commercial e-mail.

We do not sell or otherwise share our distribution lists or information collected through our website or e-mail marketing system with outside parties. However as an Agency of the State of Oklahoma, we are governed by the Oklahoma Open Records Act, and your e-mail address may be subject to disclosure.

If at any time you have concerns about how your private information is used by the Oklahoma Department of Commerce, please contact us at info@okcommerce.gov or 800-879-6552 or at the address below:
