Unless you voluntarily provide certain information, Girl Scouts of Colorado does not collect personally identifiable information. We do not require you to register or provide information to view our web site or to obtain information about the Council’s programs.
Girl Scouts of Colorado only gathers personally identifiable data, such as names, addresses, zip/postal codes, email addresses, and telephone/cell phone numbers., when they are submitted. For example, personally identifiable information is collected to process membership and activity registrations, online transactions, donations, or employment applications. This information is used solely by Girl Scouts of Colorado or other entities involved in the operation of this the Council's website for internal purposes.
Girl Scouts of Colorado never sells or rents its mailing lists or other personal information to outside parties or organizations. We will only share information when: (1) you authorize us to share information, (2) sharing the information is necessary to the Council's operations such as processing a credit card, or (3) we are required to disclose information by law.
We may collect non-personally identifiable information to evaluate and improve our website. We use this information anonymously and only in the aggregate.
Girl Scouts of Colorado cares about the safety and security of your transaction and we work hard to keep your information secure.
For example, our information security policies:
Govern the retention of sensitive information;
Restrict access to information systems; and
Specify password requirements.
Additionally, your credit card number is retained only until your online order, registration or donation has been processed. At that time, we destroy all records of your credit card information.
Further, we restrict the use of such information and require that it be kept secure. We use Secure Socket Layer (SSL) which is the industry standard for secure commercial transactions. This encrypts all your personal information including credit card number, name and address and makes it difficult for anyone else to intercept the credit card information you send. Companies that we work with to process credit card transaction also use high-grade encryption and security protocols.

The Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) protects the personal information of children under the age of 13. This applies to individually identifiable information about a child that is collected online, such as full name, home address, email address, telephone number or any other information that would allow someone to identify or contact the child. The Act and Rule also cover other types of information—for example, hobbies, interests and information collected through cookies or other types of tracking mechanisms—when they are tied to individually identifiable information. It is important for you to understand this law; we encourage you to read more about COPPA.
Girl Scouts of Colorado is committed to providing a safe, secure, and fun online experience for children who visit our site. We are dedicated to safeguarding any personal information collected online and to helping parents and children have positive experiences on the Internet. Consistent with the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998, we will never knowingly request personally identifiable information from anyone under the age of 13 without prior verifiable parental consent.
Parents can revoke their consent and ask that information about their children be deleted by contacting our offices by phone at 1-866-827-7033 or via email. To do this or to review personal information collected from children, we must verify the identity of the requesting parent. When a parent revokes consent, we will stop collecting, using, or disclosing information from that child. To respect the privacy of parents, information collected and used for the sole purpose of obtaining verifiable parental consent or providing notice is not maintained in retrievable form if parental consent is not obtained after a reasonable time.
Girl Scouts believes it is good policy not to collect more personally identifiable information from children under 13 than is necessary for them to participate in our activities. In addition, be aware that all sites that are targeted to children under 13 are prohibited by law from collecting more information than they need.
We do not use our website to sell merchandise or services to, nor do we solicit contributions from, children under the age of 18. Parents or guardians must purchase products or services, or make donations on behalf of children..
Persons under 18, need parent/guardian permission to use a credit card to make purchases online.
