Privacy Policy


This privacy policy (the "Privacy Policy") of the Swedish School of Colorado, Inc. ("SSC") describes the privacy practices for the SSC website located at www.svenskaskolancolorado.org (the "Site").  The purpose of this Privacy Policy is to inform you about the types of information we gather about you when you visit the Site, information we may receive from third parties or affiliates, how we may use that information, whether we disclose that information to anyone, and the choices you have regarding our use of, and your ability to correct, the information.  SSC strives to help its supporters and other visitors of the Site protect their privacy while using our Site.  SSC wants to make your online experience satisfying and safe.

This Privacy Policy does not apply to other web sites that are accessible through the Site.  Please be aware that any advertisers, sponsors, affiliated entities and other third-party web sites accessible through the Site may have their own privacy and data collection policies and practices.  We are not responsible for any actions or policies of such third parties.  You should check the applicable privacy policies of those third parties when providing personally identifiable information through such linked sites. 

How We Collect and Use Information
We collect information in several ways by your use of the Site or the web sites of our affiliated entities (our "Affiliates"), as well as from applications or personal correspondence, such as emails or letters that you send to us.  We may ask you to voluntarily provide us with personal information on the Site, or our Affiliates may ask you to voluntarily provide personal information on their web sites and may share such personal information with us.  In addition, when you log onto the Site, our servers may log your IP address, the URL of your request and other information that is provided in the HTTP header.

"Cookies" are small files that are stored on your computer and may be used to store your personal information.  SSC may use cookies to customize content specific to your interests, track your patterns, and store your password and/or username so you do not have to re-enter that information each time you use the Site.  However, SSC has no access to, or control over, these cookies.
