Privacy Policy
PRIVACY STATEMENT
Protection of individual privacy is of utmost concern to the Denver Employees Retirement Plan ("DERP"). DERP is committed to maintaining the confidentiality, integrity and security of any personal information about our members and users that is not already publicly available. Personal information collected by DERP will be used only for the purpose for which it is collected. DERP is subject to laws that ensure governmental operations are open and that the public has a right to access appropriate records and information possessed by it. At the same time, there are exceptions to the public's right to access certain public records. Except as authorized by law, or by the member, such information will not be disclosed to other persons or organizations. By visiting or using this Site, you acknowledge that you accept the practices and policies outlined in this Privacy Policy, and you hereby consent that we will collect, use, and share your information in the following ways:

COLLECTION OF INFORMATION
We do not collect any personal information about you unless you voluntarily participate in an activity that asks for information (i.e., sending an e-mail or entering the secure parts of our web site to view personal account information, etc.). Certain areas and features of the website are available to you without registration or the need to provide any information to DERP. However, to view member specific information you need to provide a login ID and password ("Registration Information"). Access to your Registration Information is strictly restricted to DERP employees and contractors working on behalf of DERP who are bound by confidentiality obligations.

When you use our Site we automatically record technical and navigational information, such as computer browser type, Internet protocol (IP) address, pages visited, and average time spent on our website. This general information is collected for analysis and statistical purposes. This information is not reported or used in any manner that would reveal personally identifiable information, and will not be released to any outside parties unless legally required to do so.

SHARING OF INFORMATION
Any information supplied by our users is considered private and will not be made available to others for any purpose. DERP is the sole owner of any personal information collected and does not sell, share, rent or otherwise distribute any of this information.

LINKS TO OTHER WEBSITES
As a convenience for users, this website contains links to other websites created and maintained by other public and private entities. The use of these external links does not constitute or imply endorsement or recommendation of services, vendors or products by DERP.

Please be aware that DERP is not responsible for the material found on any linked site or for the privacy practices of such other sites. We encourage you to read the privacy statements of these linked sites because their privacy policies may differ from ours. DERP disclaims any and all liability for any claims or damages that may result from providing the website or the information it contains, including any websites maintained by third parties that are linked to DERP's website.

E-mails
Inquiries, requests and other communication may be transmitted to DERP via e-mail. E-mail is not a secure platform. Information passed through e-mail can be intercepted by third parties. For this reason, you should not communicate personal information (e.g. account information, Social Security number, etc.) via an e-mail. Any request for information that requires DERP to respond with confidential information will be responded to, in writing, at the last known address that DERP has on file for the member. DERP will not respond to the e-mail request via an e-mail response.

Although DERP strives to respond to e-mail inquiries as soon as possible, it makes no guarantee, either expressed or implied, as to the timeliness of its response to e-mail nor does it assume any legal liability or responsibility for the consequences resulting from action taken by recipients of e-mail replies.

Security
When DERP asks a member to enter sensitive information in the secure areas of this website, (such as user ID, password, or a portion of the member's Social Security number, etc.), that information is encrypted and protected.
