DRCOG is committed to protecting user privacy online. We believe that greater protection of personal privacy on the web will not only protect users, but also increase user confidence and ultimately their participation in online activities. At https://www.drcog.org, we intend to give you as much control as possible over your personal information. The purpose of our policy is to inform you about the types of information we gather when you visit our site, how we may use that information, whether we disclose it to anyone, and the choices you have regarding our use of the information.
- Information that we collect for statistical purposes. We collect some information that is used for analysis and statistical purposes that help us manage our website. We automatically collect electronically generated information about your visit to our site, such as the date, type of browser used, and technical Internet protocol data. We collect this information about each user session from our user logs, and refer to it for statistical purposes.
- Information that you provide us when using our interactive forms and functions. You may be required to provide your personal information to DRCOG when you send us an email, complete an on-line form or application, or participate in one of DRCOG’s bulletin board services, chat areas, forums, and other message or communication facilities. This information may include such things as your name, address, telephone number, and other personal and business data. If you send us an electronic mail message with a question or comment that contains personal information, or fill out a form that emails us this information, we will use your personal information to respond to your request, complete the service you have requested, or analyze trends. We may redirect your message to another government agency, service provider, or other person who is in a better position to answer your question. When you disclose personal information in any of DRCOG's bulletin board services, chat areas, forums, and other message or communication facilities, please remember that information disclosed in these areas becomes public information, and you should exercise caution when deciding to disclose your personal information.

You also are provided an automatic way to "unsubscribe" to any newsletters, notices, schedules, etc., sent to you automatically by email in the body of the email.
- Disclosure to third parties. In Colorado, there are laws to ensure the government is open and transparent. DRCOG is governed by these open records laws. Any information that we receive through the use of our website potentially becomes a public record and may be subject to inspection and copying by members of the public, unless an exemption in the law exists. Except as required by law or except as where otherwise provided on this website, waytogo.org or biketoworkday.us, we do not share personal identifying information with any third party without your permission. We disclose only in aggregate form our statistical analyses or demographics of users to third parties. This information is not reported or used in any manner that would reveal personally identifiable information, and will not be released to any outside parties unless we are legally required to do so in connection with law enforcement investigations or other legal proceedings.
