Privacy Policy

Effective 03/26/2003

Overview

The Western Los Angeles County Council, B.S.A. is committed to respecting and protecting the personal privacy of its members and those who visit its website. It is our policy to acquire personal information from users only by overt and voluntary means, only when it is in the interest of the user to provide it, and to utilize this information only for the purpose it was provided.

WLACC does not share personally identifiable information about its web site visitors with anyone outside the WLACC.


What information does this site collect? How is it collected?

This site collects anonymous data that is not indicative of and cannot be traced to an individual without the cooperation of their Internet Service Provider. This data includes information about the user's remote IP address, referral data (which page "linked" to the present request), and the browser software's user-agent string. This information is accepted passively from the HTTP headers that are sent from the user when requesting any file from the server. Other anonymous data entered by the user may be collected in a common repository, including terms entered into the search engine, ZIP codes entered into the council locator, etc.

Personally identifiable data is collected only by means of form interfaces on the site, into which the user must voluntarily enter the information requested. This information is requested only when it is necessary to accomplish the overt purpose indicated by the interface containing the form that requests it.

No attempt is made to covertly or "quietly" collect personally identifiable information, nor are cookies or any other tracking technology used for the purpose of coordinating information that a user may opt to enter in various interfaces on the site.

In most cases, personally identifiable information is not maintained. Once it has been used for its intended purpose, it is deleted. Because of the brevity of this interval, no mechanism is provided to enable users to alter or delete information they have submitted.

Currently, the only place on the website that collects personally identifiable information is our "Contact Us" Form, which you can use to contact us via E-Mail. The information collected on that form will only be used for that particular E-Mail correspondence, and will not be used for any other purposes.

In the future, we may add mailing-list subscription/notification options. In that case, we would require your email address and/or other personally identifying information. We will not use this information for any other purpose.


How is this information used?

Reports, statistics, and other analyses of aggregate anonymous information may be shared within the organization or provided to third parties at the sole discretion of the Boy Scouts of America. This information does not include any personally identifiable information.

Currently, the only place on the website that collects personally identifiable information is our "Contact Us" Form, which you can use to contact us via E-Mail. The information collected on that form will only be used for that particular E-Mail correspondence, and will not be used for any other purposes.

We never use or share the personally identifiable information provided to us online in ways unrelated to the ones described above without also providing you an opportunity to opt-out or otherwise prohibit such unrelated uses.

We will not share your personally-identifying information with anyone outside our organization, unless required to do so by law. Exception: The WLACC reserves the right to use all information at its disposal and to share this information with ISPs and other third parties as necessary to investigate any incident of misuse or abuse of its site, server, or information systems.

Questions?

Should you have other questions or concerns about our privacy policy, please contact us.

 

This privacy policy is subject to change, and those changes will be posted here.
