It is the County Assessors Association of Oklahoma (CTAO)’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our website.

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, CAAO collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. CAAO’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how CAAO’s visitors use its website. From time to time, CAAO may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
CAAO also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments. CAAO only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that blog commenter IP addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog where the comment was left.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to CAAO’s website choose to interact with CAAO in ways that require CAAO to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that CAAO gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. Those who engage in transactions with CAAO are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, CAAO collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with CAAO. CAAO does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.

Aggregated Statistics

CAAO may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its website. For instance, CAAO may monitor the most popular posts on and may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, CAAO does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

CAAO discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on CAAO’s behalf or to provide services available at CAAO’s website, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. CAAO’s will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, CAAO discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when CAAO believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of CAAO, third parties or the public at large. CAAO takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.


A cookie is a string of information that a website stores on a visitor’s computer, and that the visitor’s browser provides to the website each time the visitor returns. CAAO uses cookies to help CAAO identify and track visitors, their usage of the CAAO website, and their website access preferences. CAAO visitors who do not wish to have cookies placed on their computers should set their browsers to refuse cookies before using CAAO’s website, with the drawback that certain features of CAAO’s website may not function properly without the aid of cookies.

Business Transfers

If CAAO, or substantially all of its assets were acquired, or in the unlikely event that CAAO goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of CAAO may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.
