Personally identifiable information is information about an individual that could reasonably be used to identify that individual. Examples of personal information include an individual’s first and last name, residential address, telephone number, and e-mail address.
The Colorado Attorney General fully supports the protection of individual privacy. We minimize the collection of personally identifiable information to the least amount required to complete a particular transaction. This policy extends to the collection of all personally identifiable information, regardless of the source or the medium.
It is our policy to collect no personally identifiable information about you unless that information is required to complete a particular transaction. In addition, we collect no personally identifiable information about you unless you voluntarily participate in activities that ask for information. Choosing not to participate in these activities will not affect your ability to use any other features of our Web site.
If personal information is requested on the Web site or is volunteered by the user, state and federal law may protect that information. However, all information becomes a public record once it is provided and may be subject to public inspection and copying if not protected by federal or state law.
Furthermore, the information filed with the Attorney General may be stored electronically and may be made accessible to the public through the Attorney General’s Web site. 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 online or by e-mail will be treated the same as information provided by an adult and may be subject to public access.
The Information Services division, as developer and manager of the Colorado Attorney General’s Web site, has taken several steps to safeguard the integrity of its telecommunications and computing infrastructure, including but not limited to authentication, monitoring, and auditing. Security measures have been integrated into the design, implementation, and day-to-day practices of the entire operating environment as part of a continuing commitment to risk management.
