In some situations, we may share your data and receive something of value in return other than cash (e.g. analytical analysis from Google).
Legal Process and Investigation Issues
From time to time, DPP may be required to respond to a subpoena, a court order or similar investigative demand from law enforcement, a government agency, a private litigant, or a Colorado’s Open Records Act (CORA). DPP reserves all rights to respond and defend, within its sole discretion, against such legal requests, demands, and claims. For instance, DPP may raise or waive legal objections or rights. DPP also reserves the right to disclose your information, as allowed by applicable law, when we believe it is reasonably appropriate based on the situation. Such disclosure may occur, but is not limited to, disclosing your information in connection with efforts to: (i) investigate, prevent, or commence other actions regarding suspected illegal activity or other wrongdoing; (ii) protect or defend the rights, property or safety of our company, our users, our employees, or others; (iii) comply with applicable law or cooperate with law enforcement; or (iv) enforce the TOS or other agreements or policies related to the Site or the Services.
Notice about Social Security Numbers
We may collect social security numbers of users only when the users provide it to us. You should not provide such information to DPP unless it is absolutely necessary. If DPP comes into possession of users’ social security numbers or collects such information in the future, the information will be treated confidentially and not shared with third parties unless allowed by law. Additionally, DPP will take reasonable steps to limit the access to such social security numbers and take legally required steps to secure the transmission of the data containing such social security numbers.
The Site may contain links to other websites. DPP disclaims any responsibility for the privacy practices of third parties that may have links to or from our website, or any framed content on our website. We encourage you to review the privacy policies/statements of every website that you visit that collects personally identifiable information.

Information Retention and Security
We may store your information for more than three (3) years from the time of initial submission, as well as automated personal information we collect about you in compliance with applicable law. However, if we obtain or collect your social security number or credit card number, that information will only be stored for a limited time pursuant to your authorization unless the law requires otherwise.
We take reasonable security measures to protect users’ information against unauthorized access, loss, alteration, or destruction. These measures include utilizing encryption, firewalls, intrusion monitoring, physical security measures to guard against unauthorized access to systems where we store personal information, system and device locking, and the use of reputable third-party vendors. We also take commercially reasonable efforts to limit sensitive information access to a limited number of personnel and on a need-to-know basis. Despite these reasonable measures, we cannot guarantee our security measures are impenetrable. Therefore, although we take reasonable steps to secure your information, we cannot and do not promise or warrant that your information will always remain secure.
