Privacy

Welcome to the SpiralScouts™ International (S*SI) Web Site. S*SI recognizes the desire of many Web Site visitors to protect their online privacy. S*SI has provided this Web Site Privacy Statement to inform visitors to all spiralscouts.org sites of S*SI's approach to online privacy.

 

Collecting Personal Information

SpiralScouts™ International respects the privacy of its online visitors. Web Site visitors are not required to register or provide any personal information in order to view the site, but they are required to register in order to become a ProtoCircle, download some information, and participate in online forums. S*SI will only gather information such as a visitor's name, address, zip code, e-mail address, etc., when that visitor voluntarily submits the information.

 

Domain names

Our web server will automatically recognize a visitor's domain name, but not the visitor's e-mail address.

 

E-mail addresses

We collect the e-mail addresses of those who subscribe to our email lists, join our groups, and those who communicate with us via e-mail. S*SI will not sell e-mail addresses, and will only share e-mail addresses with its own affiliated Clans and Tribes.

 

Other collected information

We collect aggregate information on what pages our visitor's access or visit. Like most websites, our server software gathers log files of general demographic information from all users of the website. This includes browser types, IP addresses and referring domains. Any information gathered from Web Site visitors will only be used by the SpiralScouts™ International. S*SI lists are never sold or loaned to third parties.

 

Cookies

The SpiralScouts™ International Web Site uses cookies to store temporary, non-personal information. The S*SI web site will not store personal or sensitive data in a cookie due to the insecure nature of cookies. Cookies are presently used on the S*SI site to store the state of the navigation menu and does not store any personal or potentially sensitive information in the cookie. Additional information about how cookies work is available in the article "Cookies: what they are and how they work", on the Netscape website at http://help.netscape.com/kb/consumer/19970226-2.html.

 

Links to Other Web Sites

Links to third-party Web Sites are provided solely as a convenience to S*SI Web Site visitors. If you access a web site other than the main SpiralScouts™ International (this) site, S*SI assumes no responsibility for any third-party Web Site, its content or the privacy and information collection policies and practices of any other sites that you may visit via links posted on the S*SI Web Site. Additionally, S*SI does not endorse nor make any representations about linked sites, or any information, software, or other products or materials found on linked sites, or any results that may be obtained from using them. If you access a third-party Web Site linked to www.spiralscouts.org you do so entirely at your own risk.

 

A Note to Parents

SpiralScouts™ International invites young people to learn more about this organization and, where appropriate, discover opportunities to participate in programs and attend events sponsored by S*SI. However, S*SI encourages parents to supervise all Internet access by their children, including access to the S*SI Web Site.

If the SpiralScouts™ International Web Site changes its privacy practices, those changes will be posted on this page so you are kept informed of what information we collect, how we use it, and under what circumstances we disclose it. Please check this page for changes from time to time to make sure you are aware of our latest privacy practices.
