About Digital Cookie
Digital Cookie is a groundbreaking addition to the Girl Scout Cookie
Program that creates a fun, safe, interactive space for girls to sell
cookies and develop the five skills of the traditional Girl Scout
Cookie Program - goal setting, decision making, money management,
people skills and business ethics – while also learning about
emarketing, online commerce, website maintenance, digital order taking
and shipping. These are vital activities for modern business and
Digital Cookie complements and strengthens both traditional
door-to-door sales and booth sales by adding and teaching a new layer
of skills. With Digital Cookie, Girl Scouts can invite customers via
email to buy Girl Scout Cookies through their online cookie business.
Girls can also take in-person orders using a unique mobile app newly
enhanced to allow for credit card processing and direct shipping.
Digital Cookie Safety
Ensuring the health and safety of our girls is a top priority in
Girl Scouting. Girls and adults must be safety conscious, and adults
must be trained to ensure proper supervision, prevention of accidents
and incidents and maintenance of program resources. Learn more about
the safety in Digital Cookie through the following pledge and terms

Cookie Volunteer Terms and Conditions
Safety requirements and regulations for Digital Cookie are in line
with the classic cookie program. For example, a parent, guardian,
caregiver or buddy (depending on the age of the Girl Scout) must be
with the girl when she’s delivering cookies. Girls sending out product
emails or announcements online should sign with their first names only
and their council name. Personal emails or street addresses of girls
should never be given.
Girls not participating in Digital Cookie may call and send email
messages to alert friends and family to product sales and may accept
customer commitments via email or telephone. Girls who are 13 years of
age or older may use social networking sites to market product, but
must follow council and GSUSA guidelines.
