Privacy Policy

Girl Scouts of Southern Nevada is committed to protecting your privacy and developing technology that gives you the most powerful and safe online experience. This Statement of Privacy applies to the Girl Scouts of Southern Nevada Web site and governs data collection and usage. By using the pages on this site, you are accepting the practices described in the Privacy Policy.

Girl Scouts of Southern Nevada online properties comprise of, but are not limited to, all pages found under www.girlscoutsnv.org.

Children's Privacy

The Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) protects the personal information of children under the age of 13. This applies to individually identifiable information about a child that is collected online, such as full name, home address, email address, telephone number or any other information that would allow someone to identify or contact the child. The Act and Rule also cover other types of information—for example, hobbies, interests and information collected through cookies or other types of tracking mechanisms—when they are tied to individually identifiable information. It is important for you to understand this law; we encourage you to read more about COPPA.

Note to Parents on Our Privacy Policy

Girl Scouts is committed to providing a safe, secure, and fun online experience for children who visit our site. We are dedicated to safeguarding any personal information collected online and to helping parents and children have positive experiences on the Internet. Consistent with the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998, we will never knowingly request personally identifiable information from anyone under the age of 13 without prior verifiable parental consent.

Parents can revoke their consent and ask that information about their children be deleted from the site by contacting our offices by phone at (702) 385-3677 OR (800) 762-6032 or via email customerservice@girlscoutsnv.org. To do this or to review personal information collected from children, we must verify the identity of the requesting parent. When a parent revokes consent, we will stop collecting, using, or disclosing information from that child. To respect the privacy of parents, information collected and used for the sole purpose of obtaining verifiable parental consent or providing notice is not maintained in retrievable form by the site if parental consent is not obtained after a reasonable time.

Girl Scouts believes it is good policy not to collect more personally identifiable information from children under 13 than is necessary for them to participate in our online activities. In addition, be aware that all sites that are targeted to children under 13 are prohibited by law from collecting more information than they need.

Use of your Personal Information

Girl Scouts of Southern Nevada collects and uses your personal information to operate the Girl Scouts of Southern Nevada Web site and deliver the services you have requested to complete that request, question, order, or process. We use return e-mail addresses to answer the e-mail we receive. Such addresses are not used for any other purpose and are not shared with outside parties. Girl Scouts of Southern Nevada also uses your personally identifiable information to inform you of other products or services available from Girl Scouts of Southern Nevada and its affiliates. Girl Scouts of Southern Nevada may also contact you via surveys to conduct research about your opinion of current services or of potential new services that may be offered.

Girl Scouts of Southern Nevada does not sell, rent or lease its customer lists to third parties. Girl Scouts of Southern Nevada may, from time to time, contact you on behalf of external business partners about a particular offering that may be of interest to you. In those cases, your unique personally identifiable information (e-mail, name, address, telephone number) is not transferred to the third party. In addition, Girl Scouts of Southern Nevada may share data with trusted partners to help us perform statistical analysis, send you email or postal mail, provide customer support, or arrange for deliveries. All such third parties are prohibited from using your personal information except to provide these services to Girl Scouts of Southern Nevada, and they are required to maintain the confidentiality of your information.

Girl Scouts of Southern Nevada does not use or disclose sensitive personal information, such as race, religion, or political affiliations, without your explicit consent.

Girl Scouts of Southern Nevada keeps track of the Web sites and pages our customers visit within Girl Scouts of Southern Nevada, in order to determine what Girl Scouts of Southern Nevada services are the most popular. This data is used to deliver customized content and advertising within Girl Scouts of Southern Nevada to customers whose behavior indicates that they are interested in a particular subject area.

Girl Scouts of Southern Nevada Web sites will disclose your personal information, without notice, only if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to: (a) conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on Girl Scouts of Southern Nevada or the site; (b) protect and defend the rights or property of Girl Scouts of Southern Nevada; and, (c) act under exigent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of Girl Scouts of Southern Nevada, or the public.

Use of Cookies

The Girl Scouts of Southern Nevada Web site uses "cookies" to help you personalize your online experience. A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by a Web page server. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you, and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you.

One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. The purpose of a cookie is to tell the Web server that you have returned to a specific page. For example, if you personalize Girl Scouts of Southern Nevada pages, or register with Girl Scouts of Southern Nevada site or services, a cookie helps Girl Scouts of Southern Nevada to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of recording your personal information, such as billing addresses, shipping addresses, and so on. When you return to the same Girl Scouts of Southern Nevada Web site, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the Girl Scouts of Southern Nevada features that you customized.

You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most Web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of the Girl Scouts of Southern Nevada services or Web sites you visit.

Links to Other Web Sites and Services

This site may be linked to other sites and services that are not maintained by Girl Scouts of the USA or Girl Scouts of Southern Nevada. These Web sites have their own privacy policies, which you should review prior to visiting them. We have no responsibility for linked Web sites and provide these links solely for the convenience and information of our visitors.

Our Security Safeguard

The safety and security of your online experience is of the utmost concern to us. We ensure the appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures are in place to safeguard and help prevent unauthorized access, maintain data security, and correctly use the information we collect online.

Changes to this Statement

Girl Scouts of Southern Nevada will occasionally update this Statement of Privacy to reflect company and customer feedback. Girl Scouts of Southern Nevada encourages you to periodically review this Statement to be informed of how Girl Scouts of Southern Nevada is protecting your information.

Credit Card Safety

Protecting the safety of your credit card information is also important to us. We use Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology to protect the security of your credit card information as it is transmitted to us. SSL is the industry standard in Internet encryption technology, which is a highly sophisticated method of scrambling data as it travels from your computer to our Web site servers. We also encrypt your credit card number when we store your order and whenever we transfer that information to participating merchants.

To make sure you are accessing our secure server before you submit personal financial information, look at the lower left-hand corner of your browser. If you see an unbroken key or a closed lock (depending upon your browser), then SSL is active. To double-check for security, look at the URL or Address line of your browser. If you have accessed a secure server, the first characters of the address in that line should change from "http" to "https."

It is important for you to protect against unauthorized access to your password and to your computer. Be sure to sign off when finished using a shared computer.

Children

If you are under 18, you need parent/guardian permission to use a credit card to make purchases online.
