We may also utilize certain standard web measurement and tracking technologies such as “cookies,” web server logs, or other statistics programs to collect Usage Information and track and record how you use the Website.

We take privacy very seriously. We use your Personal Information only in order to verify identity, donor and payment information, and compliance with scholarship requirements such as U.S. citizenship and Colorado residency, or as expressly permitted by you. We may use the Usage Information to analyze, manage and improve the Website.

We do not sell your Personal Information to third parties and have no intention of doing so in the future. Except as required by law, we will not share any of your personal information with any third party unless we have received your express permission to do so.
