Online Privacy Statement
Thank you for visiting this Government of Guam sponsored Gross Receipts Tax (Business Privilege Tax) filing web site. The Department of Revenue and Taxation (DRT) administers this web site and is committed to protecting the privacy rights of Guam's taxpayers. These rights are ensured through the Privacy Act, the Guam Business Privilege Tax Laws, Federal and local statutes, and DRT policies and practices. Any personal information you may provide, as part of the www.guamtax.com enrollment process, will be used only for purposes described at the point of filing.
We will not collect personal information about you just because you visit this site. In order to improve the usefulness of this web site for our visitors and users, we automatically collect and maintain statistical information from our site's data logs that concern network traffic flow and volume. This information consists of: name of domain from which the visitor accesses the Internet (e.g. "a company.com"; "a school.edu; or "an agency.gov"), Internet protocol number, date and time the GuamTax web site is visited and type of browser and operating system used to access the site.
We do not use this information to identify individual visitors. It is used to assist program administrators in any technical problems that may occur. Aggregate information about the individual web pages visited is collected to improve the content and structure of the web site. This information is retained for a minimum of 90 days to comply with National Archives and Records Administration requirements.
The GuamTax web site uses temporary session "cookies" to give enrolled users a single, uninterrupted session when they are online. GuamTax requires that you use a "cookie"-enabled browser when you are within the secured area of the web site. This enables you to move from one secure section to another without having to stop and re-enter your identifying data (such as password, Access Code, etc). This temporary session "cookie" contains a system-generated session ID only and is immediately deleted upon leaving the site.
We also monitor network traffic to identify unauthorized attempts to upload or change information or otherwise cause damage to the web service. We focus on web site security so that this service remains available to you and other visitors. No attempts are made to identify individual users unless illegal behavior is suspected.
