 Privacy Policy

We realize that you are concerned about your privacy and that of your child and family. Please take the time to read this Privacy Policy. This Privacy Policy applies only to this Web site. However, this Web site contains links to other Web sites hosted by third parties which are not subject to the Girl Scouts of Historic Georgia’s Privacy Statement. We urge you to read the policies of each Web site that you or your child visit.

Our Policy
Girl Scouts of Historic Georgia uses its best efforts to respect the privacy of our online visitors. We do so in the following ways:

  • Unless you voluntarily provide certain information, Girl Scouts of Historic Georgia does not collect personally identifiable information. We do not require you to register or provide information to view our sites; unless you wish to enter the “My Girl Scouts Connection” area, in which case you will be asked to provide only your troop number.
  • Any personal information that you do provide will be used for the stated purpose and only by staff that need this information to perform specific tasks. We have instituted employee policies, including password protection designed to protect the security of our information. Examples of personal information that we may collect include information that you may submit when you wish to volunteer, information necessary to complete donor requests, or information required for providing merchandise or services. Our data center facility provides back-up power, raised flooring, redundant Internet connections with 24-hour monitoring, and state-of-the-art fire suppression and environmental controls.
  • Girl Scouts of Historic Georgia never sells or rents its mailing lists or other personal information to outside parties or organizations. We will only share information when: (1) you authorize us to share information, (2) sharing the information is necessary to the operation of the site such as processing a credit card, or (3) we are required to disclose information by law.
  • We may collect non-personally identifiable information to evaluate and improve our site. We use this information anonymously and only in the aggregate.
  • We may use what are referred to in electronic commerce as "cookies,” which are tiny elements of data that our computer system can send to your browser and be stored on your hard drive. We use cookies at our Council store site to facilitate your use of our store during subsequent visits. You may be able to prevent your computer from accepting cookies, to have your computer inform you when you receive a new cookie, or to disable cookies altogether by reviewing the instructions on the "HELP" portion of the toolbar on your internet browser.

Credit Cards
Girl Scouts of Historic Georgia cares about the safety and security of your transaction and we work hard to keep your information secure.

For example, our information security policies:

  • Govern the retention of sensitive information;
  • Restrict access to information systems; and
  • Specify password requirements

Additionally, your credit card number is retained only until your online order, registration or donation has been processed. At that time, we destroy all records of your credit card information.

Further, we restrict the use of such information and require that it be kept secure. We use Secure Socket Layer (SSL) which is the industry standard for secure commercial transactions. This encrypts all of your personal information including credit card number, name and address and makes it difficult for anyone else to intercept the credit card information you send. Companies that we work with to process credit card transaction also use high-grade encryption and security protocols.

Note to Parents
Girl Scouts of Historic Georgia welcomes visits from our members and their parents to our sites. 

We do not use this site to sell merchandise or services to, nor do we solicit contributions from, children under the age of 18. Parents or guardians must purchase products or services, or make donations.

We also provide links to many other sites that we feel may be of interest to our members.  Please remember that when you use a link to go from our Web site to another Web site, our Privacy Policy is no longer in effect. Your browsing and interaction on any other Web site, including Web sites which have a link on our Web site, is subject to that Web site's own rules and policies. Please read over those rules and policies before proceeding.

Our Privacy Statement will be reviewed periodically and will be changed when appropriate. We will post notice of changes to our policy on our home page. If you have any questions regarding our privacy statement or the contents of our Web Site, please contact us.
