Privacy Policy

Northeast Georgia Council BSA Privacy Policy

We respect your privacy and are committed to protect the information that you share
with us. Generally, you can browse through our website without giving us any information
about yourself. When we do need your personal information to provide services that you
request or when you choose to provide us with your personal information, this policy
describes how we collect and use your personal information.

Information Collection

Personal information means any information that may be used to identify an individual,
including, but not limited to, a first and last name, email address, a home, postal
or other physical address, other contact information, title, birth date, gender,
occupation, industry, personal interests, other information when needed to provide
a service you requested.

We only collect personal information when you update your database (volunteers only)
when you request information via email, when you ask to be included in an email
or other mailing list, or you submit information for any other reason. We only use such information
if it has been collected in accordance with acceptable privacy practices consistent
with this Policy and applicable laws.

How We Use Information Collected

We use information for several general purposes: to keep you up to date on the
latest announcements or other information we think you’d like to hear about either
from us, and to better understand your needs and provide you with better services.

Information Sharing and Disclosure

Your personal information is never shared without your permission. Data is stored
in controlled servers with limited access.

Data Security

We safeguard the security of the data you send us with physical, electronic, and
managerial procedures.

While we strive to protect your personal information, we cannot ensure the security
of the information you transmit to us, and so we urge you to take every precaution
to protect your personal data when you are on the Internet. If you wish to communicate
with an employee or volunteer via email, your email could be read by a third party.
Therefore, do not send sensitive information via email.

Third Party Sites

Our website may contains links to other sites. We do not share your personal information
with those websites and are not responsible for their privacy practices. We encourage
you to learn about the privacy policies of those companies and organizations.

Changes to this Privacy Policy

We will amend this policy from time to time. If we make any substantial changes
in the way we use your personal information we will make that information available
by posting a notice on this site.

Questions or Suggestions

If you have questions or concerns about our collection, use, or disclosure of your
personal information, please call the Northeast Georgia Council of the Boy Scouts of America
at 706.693.2446.
