OAH Privacy Policy

Thank you for visiting the Arizona Office of Administrative Hearings Website (OAH website) and reviewing our Privacy Policy statement. In addition to the information provided on the website, the OAH website provides a convenient "Front Door" to various information and services available from the State of Arizona by linking you to various other web sites. Although this web portal does not request information from you directly, except as in its on-line motion forms, individual web sites you access through the portal may request specific information from you.  This statement is included to inform you solely about the information that could be collected online as a result of visiting OAH’s website, and not as a result of following a link to reach a State agency's website or online service.  All individual agency web sites of the State of Arizona are required to contain a Privacy Policy Statement that describes what information is obtained online, how the agency uses that information, and what steps are being taken to ensure the security of customer data. Your rights to privacy are of utmost importance to the State of Arizona in building trust and confidence when conducting business through the Internet.

Information Collected and Stored Automatically

The OAH website does not use "cookies" to gather information during your visit. Individual web sites you access through the portal may use "cookies", however, and are required to define their use in the separate privacy policy statement located on the specific site. The web server that hosts the OAH website and the server that hosts the OAH Portal allowing access to case information do 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:

  1. The Internet domain (for example, "" if you use a private Internet access account, or "" if you connect from a university's domain) from which you access the website;
  2. 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
  3. 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 OAH website.
Information You Provide
Information collected from an motion form  online will be treated in the same manner as the information collected from a motion submitted on a hard copy.  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 OAH 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. 

The online motion form may require that you enter personal information (e.g., your name, home or e-mail address).  

Information Collected from Children

By statute, all State agencies must comply with the Children’s Online Privacy Policy Protection Act of 1998 ("COPPA"), requiring parental consent before collecting any personal information from any individual under the age of 13. The text of COPPA is available at


The State of Arizona and its consultants, as developer and manager of the OAH website, have taken several steps to safeguard the integrity of its computer systems and networks. These steps include, but are not limited to individual authentication, the security of transmitted data, security monitoring, auditing, and encryption of your information. Security methods and measures have been integrated into the design, implementation and day-to-day practices of the OAH Website.

Other External Links Disclaimer

The OAH website contains links to various other web sites operated by other government agencies, nonprofit organizations and private businesses. When you link to another site, you are no longer on the OAH website and this Privacy Statement will not apply to other sites. When you link to another web site, you are subject to the privacy policy of that new site.  Links to web sites outside of State government are offered solely for your convenience. The State of Arizona is not responsible for and has no control over the policies or content of any third-party sites.
Neither the State of Arizona, nor any agency, officer, employee, or contractor of the State of Arizona warrants the accuracy, reliability, or timeliness of any information published by this system, nor endorses any content, viewpoints, products, or services linked from this system, and shall not be held liable for any losses caused by reliance on the accuracy, reliability or timeliness of such information. Portions of such information may be inaccurate or outdated. Any person or entity that relies on any information obtained from this system does so at his or her own risk.

Privacy Policy Statement Is Subject To Change

This policy may be updated or revised from time to time, so please check back with the OAH privacy policy periodically in order to receive advance notice of any substantive changes to the manner in which the information you disclose on this web site may be collected, used, or disseminated.

If you choose to provide us with personal information - by filling out a form with your personal information and submitting it to us from this website - we will use that information to respond to your message and to help us get you the information you have requested. We only share the information you provide with another agency if your inquiry relates to that agency, or as otherwise required by law.
