Please remember that any information, including personal information, that you reveal in a public forum, such as a mail list, chat room, or bulletin board, is not subject to this Privacy Policy; the revealed information may be seen by third parties not related to DDOK, and may be used by the third party to contact you or for unauthorized purposes. If you connect to a third-party site from a link on DDOK’s Sites, any information you reveal on that site is not subject to this Privacy Policy. Please consult the privacy policies of each and every site you visit.

Security Practices

DDOK is a “Covered Entity” as defined in § 160.103 (3) of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA). DDOK complies with all applicable state and federal regulations for HIPAA IT Security compliance.

Personally Identifiable Information

The term "Personally Identifiable Information" refers to information about you, such as your name, birth date, Social Security number, email address or mailing address, dependent information, telephone number, and any other information that is identified with you personally, including your individual health information.

DDOK does not collect Personally Identifiable Information from its Sites unless you voluntarily and explicitly provide consent to do so through use of an online account. Collection, use and disclosure of Personally Identifiable Information may occur as a result of this consent, unless a law or regulation specifically requires or allows otherwise. DDOK maintains technical, physical, and administrative security and privacy safeguards to protect this information.

Please refer to Delta Dental of Oklahoma’s Notice of Privacy Practices for additional information regarding consent for collection, use and disclosure of Personally Identifiable Information, as well as consequences of restricting, denying or withdrawing consent.

Website User Surveys

DDOK will never provide your email address to a third party without your consent. Spotlight subscribers have the option to receive marketing surveys and other electronic information from a third party and/or DDOK.

By agreeing to accept, you may receive electronic communications by unencrypted email that include information regarding your benefits, treatment, payment and healthcare operations. The website user will assume any risks that may come from communicating electronically. When using an unencrypted email, these communications can possibly be accessed by someone other than the intended recipient. The website user will not have to consent to purchasing any goods or services. The website user may rescind this consent at any time.


You may browse DDOK Sites without any registration process. However, interactive sections require a user name, password, and valid email address. Unauthorized access to interactive sections is strictly prohibited. DDOK’s registration process requires you to give unique identifying information. DDOK uses this information to verify only registered users are accessing DDOK sections containing confidential information. This registration process is specific to DDOK members, dentists, clients, and brokers, and not all information is made available to all types of registrants.

User Names, Passwords, and E-mail Addresses

User names and passwords are considered confidential. If you suspect unauthorized use of your user name and password, notify DDOK immediately so they may be deactivated. You agree that you are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your user name and password, and you are responsible for all uses of your user name and password. You may not share your password with or transfer your password to any third party.

How to access or correct your Personally Identifiable Information

DDOK maintains a process for Oklahoma individual consumers enrolled in Delta Dental Patient Direct, Delta Dental PPO, and Delta Dental PPO-Point of Service, whereby the consumer may visit DDOK’s commercial website to review and request changes to his or her Personally Identifiable Information that is collected through DDOK’s website. A member-specific user name and password are required to access information. After logging in, the user may select “Update My Profile” from the menu and click “Update” to edit personal information.

Individual consumers enrolled in a plan, other than the plans listed above, may request changes by sending a written request to DDOK at the address listed below.

Sharing of Information

DDOK does not sell or rent your information. DDOK will share your Personally Identifiable Information with certain third-party vendors to conduct specific business functions and to provide you with services and products. Categories of services provided by these third-party vendors include: complying with valid legal requirements such as a law, regulation, search warrant, subpoena, or court order; or in special cases, such as physical threat to you or to others. Information, including Dentist’s data, may also be disclosed to DDOK vendors and suppliers where it is necessary to provide you with products and services related to the better operation and maintenance of DDOK’s Sites. DDOK will attempt to ensure that suppliers or vendors do not utilize your Personally Identifiable Information for any purpose other than providing DDOK or you with products or services, such as giving “leads” to certain geographically-related affiliates. However, this attempt is not a guarantee that these entities will comply with these restrictions.

DDOK may share Personally Identifiable Information with persons or organizations within or outside of DDOK as required or permitted by law. To ensure DDOK is able to provide high quality services responsive to your needs, you agree that DDOK may have access to your online account and records as reasonably necessary to investigate complaints and to conduct the business of DDOK in providing services to you.
