Information Collection, Use, & Sharing 

We are the sole owners of the information collected on this site. We only have access to/collect information that you voluntarily give us via email or other direct contact from you. We will not sell or rent this information to anyone.

We will use your information to respond to you regarding the reason you contacted us. We will not share your information with any third party outside of our organization, other than as necessary to fulfill your request, e.g. to send you information.

Electronic Communications Policy

CCD has adopted a policy to guide usage of all forms of electronic communication, including email, Internet services, texting, voicemail, audio and video conferencing, and fax messages that are sent or received by faculty, staff, students, and other authorized users of CCD resources.

In general, CCD provides various forms of electronic communication for teaching, learning, and college operations. All records created through the electronic communication equipment provided by CCD are the property of the College. People who are authorized to use email and voicemail provided by CCD may make personal use of those media, as long as there is no direct cost to the College.

All electronic communication at CCD must meet the standards of conduct, laws, and regulations published in such official CCD, state, and federal documents as the CCD Catalog, CCD Student Code of Conduct, any CCD faculty handbook, and the Colorado State Employees Handbook.

CCD electronic communications may not be used for commercial purposes, e.g., to send copies of documents in violation of copyright laws, to transmit information that is restricted by laws or regulations, to intimidate, threaten, or harass other individuals, or to interfere with the ability of others to conduct CCD business, forge communication so it appears to be from someone else, to get unauthorized access to data, files, or other communication, to breach security measures in order to access electronically stored information in any way, or sending chain letters or jokes of any nature.

CCD does not routinely monitor electronic communication. Message contents are inspected only to protect health, safety, or security. Still, the contents of email messages can be disclosed as a result of legal discovery, writ, warrant or subpoena, or as a result of a request under the Colorado Open Records Law.
