The Colorado Republican Party knows your right to privacy online is important. You do not have to identify yourself or divulge personal information unless you choose to give us your personal information.
The only personal information collected is information you give us. In our effort to provide you with personalized information and grow our Republican grassroots community online, the Colorado Republican Party may at times ask you to submit information – such as your name, address, phone number and email address – in an effort to provide you the information you want in a more timely manner. If you choose not to give us any information, we may not be able to provide you with the most timely information pertaining to: precinct caucuses and caucus locations, breaking news, upcoming events, candidate appearances, talking points, activists alerts and other Republican-related information.
We use log files to assess the aggregate level of traffic to www.cologop.org including what pages people are visiting, to diagnose any potential problems with the website, and for security reasons. This log file does contain an “Internet Protocol” or IP address that gives us insight on the general geographic area that visitors are coming from, but not information on a specific individual.

When you make a contribution to the Colorado Republican Party or to any of its sponsored committees or separate segregated funds, or to our affiliated local County Republican Party committees or candidate committees, state and federal law requires us to obtain the following information: name, mailing address, employer, occupation, and amount of contribution.

Contributions from corporations, government contractors, foreign nationals without a “green card,” and minors (individuals under the age of 18) are prohibited, except that corporate contributions of up to $550 per election cycle and other contributions in excess of applicable state and federal contribution limits and restrictions may be accepted and deposited into a sponsored state political committee account or independent expenditure committee account as permitted. Any credit card information provided is only used to immediately process your donation. The Colorado Republican Party does not retain your credit card information once the donation is processed online.
