Privacy Policy - Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment

Thank you for visiting the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment’s website and for reviewing our Privacy Policy. This policy extends to the collection of all personally identifiable information, regardless of the source or the medium. This policy addresses our standardized process for access to and for the collection, storage, use, transfer, and security of personally identifiable information.  

 

Please see the Colorado Privacy Statement for more information.

 

The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment fully supports the protection of individual privacy and minimizes the collection of personally identifiable information. 

 

 

The State Open Records Act is applicable to this Privacy Policy pursuant to the Colorado Revised Statutes, Title 24, Article 72, Part 2, which states the following: "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." Much of the information the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment collects includes individually identified health information that is not subject to the Colorado Open Records Act. Other information, however, is available through the Colorado Open Records Act.

 

 

 

If personal information is requested on the website or is volunteered by the user, state and federal law may protect that information. However, all information becomes a public record once it is 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 or by email will be treated the same as information provided by an adult and may be subject to public access.
