Who we share your data with

All information  Workforce Solutions of Central Texas collects or maintains is subject to the provisions of the Texas Public Information Act and other federal and state regulations governing information sharing. Such laws are subject to being changed by Congress or the Legislature at any time. In most circumstances, the law currently requires  Workforce Solutions of Central Texas to release to the public any properly requested information collected about visitors to its Internet web site.

Information from a new claim for unemployment benefits is only available to the last employer the applicant named on the claim. Information will not be disclosed to other third parties unless  Workforce Solutions of Central Texas receives a Request for Public Information and the law requires Workforce Solutions of Central Texas to disclose the information. Web site visitors who email comments, inquiries or online forms to  Workforce Solutions of Central Texas, or who provide personally identifiable information to the Texas Workforce Commission, should keep in mind that the Texas Public Information Act may require Workforce Solutions of Central Texas to release such information if requested.

Confidential transactions, such as unemployment claims or unemployment tax records and payments, have the same level of confidentiality whether filed through the Internet or through other methods. To the extent federal or state law makes information that is filed with  Workforce Solutions of Central Texas confidential, whether filed in paper or electronic form,  Workforce Solutions of Central Texas will treat that information as confidential and will not release it to unauthorized persons or individuals unless otherwise required or permitted by law.

Although such laws may require  Workforce Solutions of Central Texas to release information about visitors to its web site, it does not automatically collect any personally identifiable information.  Workforce Solutions of Central Texas uses server logs to record a visitor’s Internet Protocol (IP) address and to collect general information about the visit to the web site, such as the time and length of the visit, and the web pages accessed during the visit.  Workforce Solutions of Central Texas collects this information only for web site management and performance monitoring. This information is not reported or used in any manner that would reveal personally identifiable information.

For some web services,  Workforce Solutions of Central Texas temporarily stores some information on the visitor’s computer hard drive. This information is not recorded or saved by  Workforce Solutions of Central Texas after the visitor has ended the session. The only personally identifiable information that  Workforce Solutions of Central Texas saves about web site visitors is the information that visitors submit to  Workforce Solutions of Central Texas through email, online forms, or services of  Workforce Solutions of Central Texas‘s web site.

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

What rights you have over your data

If you have an account on this site or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

With few exceptions, visitors are entitled to receive and review personal information collected and to request that  Workforce Solutions of Central corrects any inaccurate personal information. These requests may be made using the contact information at the bottom of this page.

Where we send your data

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.

Additional information

How we protect your data

In places where we do collect sensitive data,  Workforce Solutions of Central Texas encrypts information sent over the Internet using a secure socket layer (SSL) connection to enhance the security of information.
