Introduction

Thank you for visiting the website for the Health District of Northern Larimer County (the Health District) and for reviewing our Website Privacy Policy.

Personal Information Collected

"Personal information" is information about a natural person that is readily identifiable to that specific individual. Personal information includes an individual's first and last name, residential address, telephone number, or email address.

The Health District fully supports the protection of individual privacy, and minimizes the collection of personally identifiable information to the least amount of information required to complete a particular transaction. This policy extends to the collection of all personally identifiable information, regardless of the source or the medium.

The Health District automatically collects some information about your visit to our website. This information may include:

  • Internet Protocol (IP) address (an IP address is a numerical identifier assigned to your Internet Service Provider or directly to your computer)
  • domain name used
  • type of browser used
  • date and time that you visited the site
  • web pages or services accessed at this site

This data is used to improve the content of our web services and to help us understand how the public is using these services. This data is not considered personally identifiable information.

  • email address used to send the email message
  • contents of the email or "Contact Us" message

We collect this information to ensure we respond appropriately. For example, we may need to address issues you identify, make improvements to our website, or forward your email message to another agency for appropriate action.

It is the Health District’s policy to collect no personally identifiable information about you unless that information is required to complete a particular transaction. In addition, we collect no personally identifiable information about you unless you voluntarily participate in activities that ask for information. Choosing not to participate in these activities will not affect your ability to use any other features of our website.

Website Privacy Policy - Public Records

The Colorado Open Records Act is applicable to this Website Privacy Policy pursuant to the Colorado Revised Statutes. Title 24, Article 72, Part 2 of the statute states:

"It is declared to be the public policy of this state that all public records shall be open for inspection by any person at reasonable times, except as provided in this part 2 or as otherwise specifically provided by law."

A public record is defined here as:

"all writings made, maintained, or kept by the state, any agency, institution, a nonprofit corporation incorporated pursuant to CRS § 23-5-121(2), or political subdivision of the state, or that are described in CRS § 29-1-902, and held by any local-government-financed entity for use in the exercise of functions required or authorized by law or administrative rule or involving receipt or expenditure of public funds." CRS § 24-72-202 (6).

All information provided by the user becomes public record once provided and may be subject to public inspection and copying if not protected by federal or state law. Users are cautioned that the collection of personal information requested from or volunteered by children online will be treated the same as information provided by an adult and may be subject to public access.
