WEB SITE POLICIES
The Texas State Board of Public Accountancy has the responsibility and authority to regulate the practice of public accountancy in Texas. The Board maintains this web site to further this mission.
CookiesWe do not collect any personally identifiable information, such as names, addresses, phone numbers or e-mail addresses, unless you choose to provide such information to us regarding a complaint, record update, or opinion request. A "cookie" is a small file containing information that is placed on a user's computer by a web server. Typically, these files are used to enhance the user's experience of the site, to help users move between pages in a database, or to customize information for a user. Any information that TSBPA webservers may store in cookies is used for internal purposes only. Cookie data is not used in any way that would disclose personally identifiable information to outside parties unless TSBPA is legally required to do so in connection with law enforcement investigations or other legal proceedings.
Logs and Network MonitoringTSBPA maintains log files of all access to its site and also monitors network traffic for the purposes of site management. This information is used to help diagnose problems with the server and to carry out other administrative tasks. Log analysis tools are also used to create summary statistics to determine which information is of most interest to users, to identify system problem areas, or to help determine technical requirements. Information such as the following is collected in these files: Hostname, User-Agent, Referrer, System date, Full request, Status, Content length, Method, Universal Resource Identifier (URI), Query string of the URI, and Protocol.
The above information is not used in any way that would reveal personally identifying information to outside parties unless TSBPA is legally required to do so in connection with law enforcement investigations or other legal proceedings.
Email and Form InformationIf a member of the general public sends TSBPA an e-mail message or fills out a web-based form with a question or comment that contains personally identifying information, that information will only be used to respond to the request and analyze trends. The message may be redirected to another government agency or person who is better able to answer your question. Such information is not used in any way that would reveal personally identifying information to outside parties unless System Administration is legally required to do so in connection with law enforcement investigations or other legal proceedings.
