Troop #347, Wood District, Erie Shores Council, Boy Scouts of America is committed to respecting and protecting the personal privacy of its members and those who visit its Web site. It is our policy to acquire personal information from users only by overt and voluntary means, only when it is in the interest of the user to provide it, and to utilize this information only for the purpose it was provided.

The information that follows explains the kinds of information collected at this site, how it is used, the conditions under which it is made available to third parties, how information is maintained, and our compliance with the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act.

NOTE: This privacy policy applies only to information contained within troop347.woodbsa.org. This privacy policy does not apply to any other district or council website of the Boy Scouts of America, or any unit Web site, as their content is not controlled by this troop. Please contact the administrator of any other council, unit, or other Scouting-oriented Web site for information about their own privacy policies and the information they collect about their site visitors.

What information does this site collect?
This site does not collect any data with the exception of registration forms and site-related data, accessible only to site administrators.

Personally identifiable data is collected only by means of form interfaces on the site, into which the user must voluntarily enter the information requested. This information is requested only when it is necessary to accomplish the overt purpose indicated by the interface containing the form that requests it. Such form interfaces require only the information reasonably necessary to accomplish the overt purpose indicated on the interface.

No attempt is made to covertly or “quietly” collect personally identifiable information, nor are cookies or any other tracking technology used for the purpose of coordinating information that a user may opt to enter in various interfaces on the site.

What organization is collecting the information?
Information entered by site visitors is retrieved directly by Troop #347, Wood District, Erie Shores Council, Boy Scouts of America.

How does the Troop use the information it collects?
Personally identifiable information is used only for the express purpose for which it was submitted. For example, if a user enters their contact information in response to an online registration form for a training event, the information will be used only for the purpose of registering that individual for the event in question, or to correspond with them regarding their registration.

With whom does the Troop share the information that is collected?
The District does not share personally identifiable information about its web site visitors with anyone.

Exception: Troop #347, Wood District, Erie Shores Council, Boy Scouts of America reserves the right to use all information at its disposal and to share this information with ISPs and other third parties as necessary to investigate any incident of misuse or abuse of its site, server, or information systems.

How does the Troop maintain the information it collects?
In most cases, personally identifiable information is not maintained. Once it has been used for its intended purpose, it is deleted. Because of the brevity of this interval, no mechanism is provided to enable users to alter or delete information they have submitted.

How does the Troop comply with the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) of 1998?
Troop #347, Wood District, Erie Shores Council, Boy Scouts of America, does not use its website to collect any personally identifiable information from children under 13 years of age. Any interface that requests personally identifiable information that appears on an interface that can be expected to be viewed by children under 13 years of age is accompanied by a notice that submissions cannot be accepted from users under 13 years of age. Where “age” or “date of birth” is requested, no information will be stored or transmitted unless the response indicates that the user is 13 years of age or older. Providing personal information is never a prerequisite for accessing any of the content or resources on this Web site. Specifically, refusal to provide personal information via a web interface will never result in a user being denied access to any on-line content or resource he would be able to access were the information submitted.

Policy Modifications and Deviations
We may modify this privacy policy and will post those changes here. If the privacy policy changes in the future, we will not use any personal information you have submitted to us under the current Privacy Policy in a manner that is materially inconsistent with this Privacy Policy, without your prior consent. It may be necessary to deviate from this general policy in unique instances and for specific purposes. In such instances, a link will be provided to a description of the deviation.
