Thank you for your interest in the myColorado application (the “App”). These terms of use (the “Terms of Use”) constitute an agreement between you and the State of Colorado (the “State”), acting by and through the Governor’s Office of Information and Technology (“OIT”) in relation to your download, installation and use of the App. Please read these Terms of Use carefully before you download, install or use the App. Your download, installation or use of the App constitutes your acceptance of these Terms of Use which takes effect on the date on which you download, install or use the App. If you do not agree with these Terms of Use, you should cease downloading, installing, or using the App immediately.

  1. Changes to the Terms of Use. We reserve the right to change these Terms of Use at any time without notice to you by posting changes on https://mycolorado.gov/home (the “Website”) or by updating the App to incorporate the new terms of use. You are responsible for regularly reviewing information posted online to obtain timely notice of such changes. Your continued use of the App after changes are posted constitutes your acceptance of the amended Terms of Use.

  2. Must be 18 Years of Age. You must be 13 years of age or older to download, install and use the App. If you are under 18 and you wish to use, download, install, access or use the App, you must get consent from your parent or guardian before doing so. If you are a parent or guardian and believe your child is using the App without your consent, please let us know by contacting us here, and we will remove your child’s account.

  3. Privacy. Any information provided through the App is treated in accordance with the myColorado App Privacy Policy, available https://mycolorado.gov/privacy-policy (the “Privacy Policy”). By downloading, installing or using the App, you hereby consent to the use of your information in accordance with the Privacy Policy.

  4. Services Available through the App. The App is designed to serve as a convenient resource for Colorado residents to access a variety of State services. That said, the App is not a replacement for State services made available through other online portals or physical offices. To that end, you may need to access certain services by visiting a particular agency’s website or office. In addition, you will not be denied or lose access to any State service to which you are legally entitled solely on the basis of your inability or unwillingness to use the App. By accessing the App you acknowledge the following:

a. Physical Identification Card Still Required. The myColorado Digital ID (the “Digital ID”) is provided for your convenience but does not replace your physical government-issued identification (such as a driver’s license or passport). State and local law enforcement agencies are not required to accept your Digital ID, and while businesses are encouraged to accept the Digital ID, they are not required to do so. State agencies and entities may continue to require you to present a physical government-issued identification – particularly in instances where doing so could help avoid the commission of fraud. Accordingly, although the Digital ID in the App can serve as a convenient secondary source for your identification, for the time being, you should continue to carry government-issued identification.

b. Digital ID Restricted to App. To ensure the security of the App and State systems, and to prevent fraud, you may not store your Digital ID outside of the App. OIT may block, terminate or revoke your access to the App if you attempt to store your Digital ID outside of the App.

c. Access to Other State Services. Please note that although the App provides you access to various services offered by the State, these Terms of Use only apply to your use of the App, and not to the State services received through the App. Any State services delivered through the App are subject to the policies created by the State or government agency that is responsible for delivering the service. Accordingly, OIT may only respond to questions or concerns related to the App itself, and not the services accessed through the App. If you have any questions or concerns regarding a particular service offered by a State agency, you understand that you need to reach out to that agency directly to address your concerns.

  1. User Obligations and Restrictions. By downloading, installing, or using the App, you agree:

a. To comply with all applicable laws and regulations when using the App;

b. Not to use the app in any unlawful manner, for any unlawful purpose or in any manner not consistent with these Terms of Use, including but not limited to using the app for any fraudulent or malicious purpose;

c. Not to use the App for purposes of creating or maintaining a false or misleading identification;

d. Not to record, post or transmit any information or content through the App that is defamatory, threatening, abusive, offensive, obscene, indecent, discriminatory or otherwise objectionable, or that infringes on any third party rights;

  2. License. The State hereby grants to you a non-exclusive, non-transferable, non-sublicensable, personal, limited, revocable license to use the App for purposes of accessing your Digital ID and any other services or functions made available through the App. Any other use of the App is strictly prohibited. Except for the rights granted under these Terms of Use, the State retains all rights in and to the App, including any intellectual property rights contained therein.

  3. Termination and Revocation. Your use of this App is a limited, non-exclusive, revocable privilege that is for your personal, non-commercial use only.

Your registration information may be deleted and removed from the App at any time without notice. In short, nothing herein constitutes any promise, guarantee or warranty that the App will remain available to you. Please note that other state agencies may revoke access to privileges or services based on your misuse of the App, pursuant to their own policies and procedures. If you lose access to privileges or services offered by another state agency, please reach out to that state agency with any questions.
