Personally Identifiable Information. At our site, we do not collect personally identifiable information from individuals unless they provide it to us voluntarily and knowingly. This means we do not require you to register or provide information to us in order to view our site. Girl Scouts of Central Indiana only gathers personally identifiable data on our site, such as names, addresses, Zip/postal codes, email addresses, etc., when voluntarily submitted by a visitor. Once collected, we may combine this information with other information collected from external sources.
Use and Sharing of Personally Identifiable Information
Girl Scouts of Central Indiana is committed to providing a safe, secure, and fun online experience for children who visit our site. We are dedicated to safeguarding any personally identifiable information collected online and to helping parents and children have positive experiences on the Internet.
We will never knowingly request personally identifiable information from anyone under the age of 13 without prior verifiable parental consent. With parental consent, we may collect information from children under the age of 13 such as: name, address, email address, account information, and user generated content. This information allows us to fulfill a requested transaction and facilitate participation in online programs, keep records, undertake certain marketing activities, or to otherwise customize or enhance the website experience for children.
Children under the age of 13 may be able to make certain content such as user generated content visible to others or the public. This could include, for example, a webpage or parts of webpages operated by children that have been designed for group or public viewing. However, absent parental consent, children under 13 would be allowed to display only limited information such as a first name or unique user name or other information that does not allow for online contacting by third parties.
Regardless of what information is displayed, parents can revoke their consent and ask that information about their children be deleted from the site by contacting our offices by phone at 317.924.6800 (Toll Free: 855.GSCIN.4U) or via email at GirlScouts@girlscoutsindiana.org. To do this or to review personally identifiable information collected from children, we must verify the identity of the requesting parent. When a parent revokes consent, we will stop collecting, using, or disclosing information from that child. To respect the privacy of parents, information collected and used for the sole purpose of obtaining verifiable parental consent or providing notice is not maintained in retrievable form by the site if parental consent is not obtained after a reasonable time.
Girl Scouts of Central Indiana welcomes children to learn more about our organization and, where appropriate, participate in polls and surveys, as well as submit comments, artwork, writings, and other submissions for posting on our website. For this reason, Girl Scouts of Central Indiana follows the guidelines for interactive electronic media published by the Children's Advertising Review Unit (CARU) of the Better Business Bureau for pages targeted to children under 13. However, we encourage this be done only with their parent's knowledge and supervision. We also encourage children to use an alias (e.g., "Bookworm", "Skater", etc.), first name, nickname, initials, or other alternative to full names or screen names which correspond with an email address for any activities which will involve public posting.
In keeping with CARU's Principle regarding respecting and fostering the parents' role in providing guidance for their children, we encourage parents to check and monitor their children's use of email and other online activities regularly.

Our Security Safeguard
The safety and security of your online experience is of the utmost concern to us. We take measures to implement reasonable physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and help prevent unauthorized access, maintain data security, and correctly use the information we collect online.
Credit Card Safety
Protecting the safety of your credit card information is also important to us. For card transactions we process, we use Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology to protect the security of your credit card information as it is transmitted to us. SSL is an Internet encryption technology, and a method of scrambling data as it travels from your computer to our website servers. We also encrypt your credit card number when we store your order and whenever we transfer that information to participating merchants.
To make sure you are accessing our secure server before you submit sensitive information, check the document for your browser for indication of an SSL connection (most browsers utilize an unbroken or closed padlock). Verify that SSL is active before submitting sensitive information to our server. To double-check, verify that the URL or Address line of your browser for our site begins with "https."
It is important for you to protect against unauthorized access to your password and to your computer. Be sure to sign off when finished using a shared computer.
If you are under 18, you need parent/guardian permission to use a credit card to make purchases online.

Laws governing copyrights were issued to protect those who have created literary, artistic and musical works. It is extremely important to be aware of these laws and how they are applied. When in doubt, obtain permission!
Works enter public domain when their copyrights expire. Virtually all works developed before the 20th century were not copyrighted and belong to the public.
Girl Scouts of the USA has published a complete booklet on this subject. Contact your local council office to review a copy. The information provided below is intended as a brief summary for various forms of media. It is by no means a complete source of copyright law and cannot be relied upon as such.
Girl Scout publications: Most are copyrighted and you must obtain permission. This includes songbooks where multiple copyrights may be involved. For permission, write to Print Production, Girl Scouts of the USA, 420 Fifth Avenue, New York NY 10018-2798.
Sheet music: If a Girl Scout troop were asked to perform songs at an event, troop members may NOT use duplicated copies. They must use purchased copies.
Audiovisuals: Girl Scout audiovisuals are copyrighted. Some items indicate that they can be duplicated for internal use only. Otherwise, obtain permission by writing to Internal Communications, Girl Scouts of the USA, 420 Fifth Avenue, New York NY 10018-2798.
Photographs: Photographs, drawings and illustrations may not be used without permission.
Electronic materials: New technology is impacting copyright law, with federal legislation being drafted. Watch for timely information on this topic, and never assume you can use electronic material without permission.
There is a concept called ‘fair use’ which may apply. This doctrine allows the use of materials if such use would not economically harm the copyright holder. Fair use is determined based on the purpose (such as nonprofit educational use), the nature of the work, the amount used and the potential impact on the market value of the work. Exercise caution! It is always best to obtain permission!
