How can I be sure my information is kept confidential?

Your privacy is very important to us, as is safeguarding your personal information. As a state-authorized public service, the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services adheres to the strictest and most up-to-date guidelines to keep all personal information confidential. The secure web site uses 128 bit encryption to keep your information confidential during your use of this system.

The registry database is kept in a secure location under physical, electronic and procedural controls that ensure the information is only accessed when authorized.

It is absolutely vital that the individual registrant is identified with 100% certainty should they ever be in a position to be an actual organ or tissue donor. The department never wants to have a donor recovery organization confuse a potential donor who is not registered with someone who is. Therefore, each time you want to modify your record, you will be required to revalidate who you are with personal information.

The department has taken every precaution to protect your information from identity theft.
