Members Only Section
Our member’s only section tracks users through changes made to their profile. Changes made to a member’s profile are tracked and logged.
Using "Cookies"
The ODHS Members' Only web site uses an Internet tool called a "session" cookie. Cookies are small bits of data that are sent to a user's computer to improve the user experience. We use them to track that the member has signed in so that they don't have to continually enter their user name and password as they move around the site. This cookie is removed as soon as they log out or close their browser.
ODHS takes this privacy policy seriously. If you have questions or comments about our member privacy policy, please contact our communications coordinator.
