Personal Information
Personally identifiable information on casual visitors is not collected and retained. Visitors do not have to provide personal information to visit the CWCB Website to read, download or print information.

"Personal Information" is information about a natural person that is readily identifiable to that specific individual. Personal information includes such things as an individual's name, address, phone number or email address.

We collect no personal information about you unless you voluntarily participate in an activity that asks for information. If you choose not to participate in these activities, your choice will not affect your ability to use any other features of our Website.

If personal information is requested on the Website or volunteered by the user, state (C.R.S. 24-72 201 etseq.) and federal law may protect it. However, this information is a public record once you provide it, and may be subject to public inspection and copying if not protected by federal or state law.

Furthermore, the information contained in many kinds of documents filed with the CWCB is electronically stored and may be made accessible to the public through the CWCB's Website. Except where disclosure is protected by law, the information that is electronically stored may be purchased by private individuals and entities.

Users are cautioned that the collection of personal information requested from or volunteered by children on-line or by email will be treated the same as information given by an adult, and may be subject to public access.

To better serve our users we may use "cookies" to customize your browsing experience with us. Cookies are simple text files stored on your computer by your Web browser. They provide a method of distinguishing among visitors to our Website.

Cookies created on your computer by using this Website do not contain personally identifying information and do not compromise your privacy or security. We use the cookie feature only to store a randomly generated identifying tag on your computer. You can refuse the cookie or delete the cookie file from your computer by using any of the widely available methods. Our services are provided in such a way that the use of cookies is not mandatory.

Security measures have been integrated into the design, implementation and day-to-day practices of the entire operating environment as part of its continuing commitment to risk management.
