Online Privacy Policy

As of July 3, 2001, 369 has updated its Online Privacy Policy to give you a better understanding of our Online Privacy Policy and Practice. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us:

Online Privacy is a constantly evolving landscape and 369 plans to take all reasonable efforts to maintain up to date and effective online privacy standards and practices. We have linked every page of our web site to this page for your convenience and you may also contact us with any questions or concerns that you may have.

We at 369 and our affiliated programs are committed to respecting your online privacy and recognize your need for appropriate protection and management of any personally identifiable information ("Personal Information") you share with us.

369 has established this Online Privacy Policy so that you can understand the care with which we intend to treat your Personal Information.

Personal Information means any information that may be used to identify an individual, including, but not limited to, a first and last name, a home or other physical address, an e-mail address or other contact information, whether at work or at home. In general, you can visit 369's web pages without telling us who you are or revealing any Personal Information about yourself.

If you choose to provide us with your Personal Information on the web, we may transfer that Information, within 369 or to 369's third party service providers, across borders and from your country or jurisdiction to other countries or jurisdictions around the world.

369 strives to comply with all applicable laws around the globe that are designed to protect your privacy. Although legal requirements may vary from country to country, 369 intends to adhere to the principles set forth in this Online Privacy Policy even if, in connection with the above, we transfer your Personal Information from your country to countries that may not require an "adequate" level of protection for your Personal Information. In other words, our goal is to provide protection for your Personal Information no matter where that Personal Information is collected, transferred or retained.

Our Cookie Policy

To protect your privacy, we have adopted the following principles:


Where 369 collects Personal Information on the web, we intend to post a purpose statement that explains why Personal Information will be collected and whether we plan to share such Personal Information outside of 369 or those working on 369's behalf. 369 does not intend to transfer Personal Information without your consent to third parties who are not bound to act on 369's behalf unless such transfer is legally required.


You may choose whether or not to provide Personal Information to 369. The notice we intend to provide where 369 collects Personal Information on the web should help you to make this choice. If you choose not to provide the Personal Information we request, you can still visit most of 369's web sites, but you may be unable to access certain options, offers and services that involve our interaction with you.


Wherever your Personal Information may be held within 369 or on its behalf, we intend to take reasonable and appropriate steps to protect the Personal Information that you share with us from unauthorized access or disclosure.


To the extent that you do provide us with Personal Information, 369 wishes to maintain accurate Personal Information. Where we collect Personal Information from you on the web, our goal is to provide a means of contacting 369 should you need to update or correct that Information. If for any reason those means are unavailable or inaccessible, you may send updates and corrections about your Personal Information to 369 and we will make reasonable efforts to incorporate the changes in your Personal Information that we hold as soon as practicable.

Third party services

Third parties provide certain services available on 369 on 369's behalf. 369 may provide information, including Personal Information, that 369 collects on the web to third party service providers to help us deliver programs, products, information and services. Service providers are also an important means by which 369 maintains its web site and mailing lists. 369 will take reasonable steps to ensure that these third party service providers are obligated to protect Personal Information on 369's behalf.

369 does not intend to transfer Personal Information without your consent to third parties who are not bound to act on 369's behalf unless such transfer is legally required.

Children's Privacy

Since 369 is a "Venturing Site" and the BSA Venturing Program is for young men and women between the ages of 14 and 21 it is not structured to attract children. Moreover, though 369 has information about Cubbing and Scouting on-line it is intended for the Adult leaders and not the youth members. Accordingly, we do not intend to collect Personal Information from anyone we know to be under 13 years of age.

Virtural Scouting E-Cards

The cards are stored in a non-indexed directory so only you and the recipient should now how to find the card. This directory is also pretty secure from spammers. Though we have no control over crawlers, we think by not indexing the images this should prevent most crawlers from finding the pages..

The web pages (e-card) is kept from 5 to 14 days, depending on disk space. At that time it is automaticly errased.

At this time, we have no intention of using the e-mail addresses.


Mailing to our reflector grants 369 the uncompensated and unrestricted usage of your mail/posting in its [but not limited to] WebPage, Newsletters, books, flyers, etc!!!

Scouting The Web Award

Unit's Name, Unit's Council, Unit's City/State/Country, and Unit's URL of winning sites will be posted on our web page.

Due to Federal Laws of the USA, Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA), no application will be accepted from anyone under the age of 14 without permission and participation of the applicants Parent or Legal Guardian. While Scouting The Web Award (or 369) does not require or verify the age of site owners, anyone under the age of 14 is ineligible to submit a site for The Scouting The Web Award. (A Site will be removed if it is determined the owner is under 14.)


Protecting your privacy on-line is an evolving area, and 369's web sites are constantly evolving to meet these demands.

If you have any comments or questions regarding our Online Privacy Policy, please feel free to contact us: WHILE WE CANNOT GUARANTEE PRIVACY PERFECTION, We will address any issue to the best of our abilities as soon as possible.
