The use of "cookies," which are tiny bits of electronic information that a web site puts on a visitor's computer's hard drive so that the site can remember a visitor's preferences or the pages the visitor has viewed, help Mountain States Legal Foundation to provide visitors with a better experience on its web site. These cookies, which are standard on the Internet and used by most web sites, cannot read any other files on your computer or damage your computer. Mountain States Legal Foundation uses them to better customize visits to a visitor's preferences. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies; however, a visitor can change browser settings to refuse cookies or to provide notification when cookies are being sent.

Transfer of Information

Mountain States Legal Foundation will share postal mailing lists, but only with other like-minded organizations whose products or programs align with Mountain States Legal Foundation's core mission and goals. Mountain States Legal Foundation will carefully screen any potential list users to ensure that they meet these criteria. When a list is shared, Mountain States Legal Foundation will ensure the list is only for one-time use, and that the information provided will be the member's name and mailing address. No email or telephone information will be shared. Anyone who objects to the use of his or her information in such exchanges, that is, does not wish his/her information to be shared outside Mountain States Legal Foundation may simply opt out by contacting Mountain States Legal Foundation.

The information visitors voluntarily provide is used to tailor Mountain States Legal Foundation's services, to enhance the offerings and features of its web site, to support any transactions visitors make on the web site, and to strengthen the outreach by Mountain States Legal Foundation to the public. Occasionally, Mountain States Legal Foundation will provide some of its services through contractual arrangements with affiliates, service providers, partners and third parties.

Any ordering transaction will require credit card information to be released to the card issuing bank to confirm payment for products and services purchased on Mountain States Legal Foundation's site, and it may, in some instances, have to provide information to third parties to help provide the highest level of customer service for visitors. Information about third party service providers is available by contacting Mountain States Legal Foundation; however, the use of personal identifiable information by service partners is governed by their privacy policies, and is not subject to Mountain States Legal Foundation's control.

In rare circumstances, Mountain States Legal Foundation may be contacted and required by law enforcement or judicial authorities to provide personal identifiable information to the appropriate government authorities. Mountain States Legal Foundation will disclose personal identifiable information upon receipt of a court order or subpoena, and to cooperate with a law enforcement investigation.
