Online Customer Service and Alternatives
The Arizona State Board of Pharmacy offers access to its public information online that you might otherwise request in person. Our goal is to provide citizens with a more convenient and efficient means in which to interact with Arizona government. If at any time you choose not to proceed with a transaction offered online, your choice will in no way affect your ability to receive benefits or services another way. If you prefer to request information from us in person, you may still do so at our office.
Collection and Use of Information
Information Collected and Stored Automatically by Cookies
We do not use "cookies" to gather information during your visit unless we are conducting a survey and need them to prevent duplicate results. The web server that hosts the Arizona State Board of Pharmacy site does gather certain information about the visit automatically in a standard log file. This information never identifies you personally and consists of only the following items:
- The Internet domain (for example, "xcompany.com" if you use a private Internet access account, or "yourschool.edu" if you connect from a university's domain) from which you access the website;
- The IP address (an IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer whenever you are surfing the Web) from which you access the website; and
- The date and time of your access.
We use this information to gather statistics about the amount of use the site receives. Again, we do not automatically record information about you as an individual. This information is not shared, sold, or otherwise disseminated by the Arizona State Board of Pharmacy.
Information collected from an application submitted online will be treated in the same manner as the information collected from an application submitted on a hard copy to the Arizona State Board of Pharmacy. The information you disclose will generally become a matter of public record pursuant to A. R. S. §§ 39-121, et seq., which means that the Arizona State Board of Pharmacy may be required to divulge certain information in response to a public records request or in response to a warrant, subpoena, or other court order. We may require that you enter personal information (e.g., your name, home address, birth date, social security number, and credit card number) when applying for certain benefits and services. These services may also reference common infrastructure utilities that provide the Arizona State Board of Pharmacy with a means to obtain specific information or to facilitate a specific functional requirement of the online transaction being requested.
As an example, AZ.gov™ maintains a central credit card payment interface that the Arizona State Board of Pharmacy uses as part of our online services applications. This utility will accept only the pertinent credit card authorization data necessary to validate and fulfill the purchase. The cardholder's name, credit card number, and expiration date are obtained by the utility and used only to complete the credit card payment portion of the online transaction. The data is used only for the fulfillment of the payment and is not retained by the Arizona State Board of Pharmacy nor AZ.gov™.
Please be assured that your personal information will be held in strictest confidence while AZ.gov™ processes your online transaction and will not be shared, sold, or otherwise disseminated to any outside person or entity, except as required or authorized by law.
Information Collected from Children

Security methods and measures have been integrated into the design, implementation and day-to-day practices of the entire Arizona State Board of Pharmacy website.
