Unless specifically noted, The Colorado Trust is the sole owner of the information collected on the website. We collect information from our web users at several different points on our website.

Information Use
Generally, The Colorado Trust uses information for the purpose by which it was originally collected (e.g., to fulfill your orders for documents and publications, and to respond to your career inquiries and requests for other information).

The Colorado Trust does not share personal information with third parties, except as needed to fulfill requested services using intermediaries or agents, without users' express consent. Though we make every effort to preserve your privacy, we may disclose personal information when we have a good-faith belief that such action is necessary to comply with an appropriate law enforcement investigation, current judicial proceeding, a court order or other legal process.

Aggregate Information (Non-personally Identifiable)
The Colorado Trust may share aggregated demographic information that is not linked to any personally identifiable information.

Third Party Intermediaries
The Colorado Trust may use third parties to handle your personal information, acting solely on our behalf. Such entities do not retain, share, store or use personally identifiable information for any secondary purposes.

Correcting/Updating/Deleting/Deactivating Personal Information
If your personally identifiable information changes (e.g., last name, email address, etc.) you may update your profileLINK. If you no longer wish to receive information from The Colorado Trust, you may opt out (please see the opt-out section above).


To receive new information that is posted to our website, you must first complete The Colorado Trust's sign-up form. When subscribing, you may provide contact information (e.g., name, email and postal address). We use this information to contact you about services on our site about which you have expressed interest.

If you are only requesting publications from the site, we request the same basic information from you via our order form. You must provide contact information (e.g., name, email and shipping address). This information is used to fill your order(s); if we have trouble processing an order, the information is used to contact you.

It is optional to provide information about your interests to better facilitate your interaction with the website.

Service Announcements
On rare occasions, it may be necessary to send out a strictly service-related announcement (e.g., if our web service is temporarily suspended for maintenance). Generally, you may not opt out of such communications, although you may deactivate your account. These communications are not promotional in nature.

Opt Out
At various points on our website where we request information, users of The Colorado Trust website are given the opportunity to opt out of having their information used for purposes not directly related to our site. For example, our order form includes an opt-out mechanism - users who order a publication from us, but don't want any secondary material or information, can keep their email address off of our lists.

If you no longer wish to receive The Trust's newsletter or other communications, you may opt out of receiving these communications by visiting our sign-up page and selecting your preference not to receive information.


The Colorado Trust stores information collected through log files, interest boxes and/or third parties to create a profile of users who provide us their information. A profile is personally identifiable information that we may use to tailor your visit to our website and to direct pertinent communications to you. We do not share your profile with any third parties.

Cookies are parcels of text sent by a server to a web client (usually a browser) and then sent back unchanged by the client each time it accesses that server. Cookies maintain specific information about you, such as your site preferences or the contents of your electronic shopping carts.

Usage of a cookie is not linked to personally identifiable information while on The Colorado Trust website. We use session-based cookies for session navigation purposes. By setting a cookie on our site, you don’t have to log in with a password more than once, thereby saving time while visiting our site. If you reject the cookie, you may still use our site, but you may be timed out prematurely.

Log Files
Like most standard website servers, The Colorado Trust uses log files. This includes internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, platform type, date/time stamp and number of clicks to analyze trends, administer the site, track user’s movement in the aggregate and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. IP addresses, etc. are not linked to personally identifiable information.

Communications from The Colorado Trust Website
Special Offers and Updates
The Colorado Trust sends all new registrants a welcome email to verify your password and username. If you are an established registrant of The Colorado Trust website, you will occasionally receive information that you have requested (e.g., news, announcements of funding opportunities, etc.). Out of respect for the privacy of all of our web users, The Colorado Trust presents the option to not receive these types of communications. Please see the opt-out section below.


The Colorado Trust website contains links to other websites. Please be aware that we are not responsible for the content or privacy practices of such other sites. We encourage our users, when they leave our site, to read the privacy statements of each and every website that collects personally identifiable information.

This privacy statement applies solely to information collected through The Colorado Trust website.

From time to time, The Colorado Trust may request information from users via surveys. Participation in these surveys or contests is completely voluntary; users are given the choice whether to disclose information. The requested information typically includes contact information (e.g., name and shipping address) and demographic information (e.g., ZIP code). Contact information will be used for purposes of monitoring or improving the use and satisfaction of this site or our services. Users’ personally identifiable information is not shared with third parties without prior notice or without users’ express consent. Though The Colorado Trust may use intermediaries to conduct these surveys, we do not authorize such intermediaries to use personally identifiable information for any secondary purposes.

If you use The Colorado Trust’s referral service for informing a friend about our site, you will be asked for the friend’s name and email address. The Colorado Trust will automatically send the friend a one-time email invitation to visit our site. We do not store this information except as needed to process the requested referral function.

The Colorado Trust and this website take every precaution to protect your information. All of our users’ information is restricted in our offices. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job are granted access to personally identifiable information. Additionally, employees are kept up-to-date on The Colorado Trust’s security and privacy practices, and servers that store personally identifiable information are in a secure environment.

Notification of Changes
Changes to The Colorado Trust’s privacy policy will be posted within this privacy statement and other points on our website where we deem it appropriate and logical to do so, thereby keeping our users informed about what information we collect, how we use it and under what circumstances, if any, we disclose it.

If, however, The Trust determines a need to use your personally identifiable information in a manner different from that stated at the time of its collection, we will notify you via email and/or by posting a notice on our website for 30 days.
