Website Privacy Statement
Our web server automatically collects and logs web usage data from when you visit the Site. This information is collected for purposes related to the services we provide on behalf of VA DMAS. This information, including your Internet Protocol (IP) address, referring sites, pages viewed, browser type, operating system, CPU speed, referring or exit web pages, and length of visit, informs us about how visitors use and navigate the Site. Maximus will collect the information above from your visit to the Site only for these purposes and for purposes related to the services we provide on behalf of VA DMAS.
Our application uses govDelivery analytics, a service which transmits traffic data to govDelivery analytics servers. govDelivery does not identify individual users or associate your IP address with any other data held by govDelivery analytics. We use reports provided by govDelivery analytics to help us understand application traffic and webpage usage. You may view the govDelivery analytics Privacy Statement located here.

However, some application features or services may not function properly or be accessible without cookies.

“Do Not Track”
"Do Not Track" is a preference you can set in your web browser to let the websites you visit know that you do not want them collecting information about you. The Site does not currently respond to a "Do Not Track" or similar signals.
Maximus is strongly committed to protecting personal information collected through this Site against unauthorized access, use or disclosure. Maximus limits employee access to personal information collected through this Site to only those employees who need access to the information in the performance of their official duties. Employees who have access to this information follow appropriate procedures in connection with any disclosures of personal information.
Maximus uses various technological and procedural security measures in order to protect the personal information we collect through the Site from loss, misuse, alteration or destruction. We have documented Information Security & Privacy policies to address data protection. We regularly provide information security and privacy awareness training to our employees. However, you should be aware that, due to the open and unsecured character of the Internet, Maximus cannot be responsible for the security of transmissions of personal information over the Internet. We have prepared a formal incident response plan in case of a data breach.
To protect your communications through the Site, we authenticate, monitor, audit, and encrypt activity. You can tell when the site is secure by looking at the location (URL) field. If the URL begins with https:// (instead of http://), the document comes from a secure server. This means your personally identifiable information cannot be read or deciphered by unauthorized individuals. This is part of our continuing commitment to protecting your information. Please note, that despite our efforts, no security measures are completely secure. Use of this system constitutes consent to such monitoring and auditing.
Maximus is committed to complying fully with the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act. Although parents are free to use this website on behalf of their children, we don't direct this site to children or knowingly collect personal information from children. We're pleased to work with parents and guardians to delete from our records personal information that a child may have disclosed improperly on this website. Maximus appreciates your cooperation with this federally mandated requirement.
