What types of information does JWA collect from users?
We may collect information about your activity on the sites (such as logging IP addresses) for routine system administrative purposes, to make our websites more interesting and useful, or to manage content delivery. For instance, we use technology to track traffic patterns on the website. Once you have logged onto a JWA website, we use logs of database transactions and server interactions to track where you go and what you do on the website. We use this data to understand how the website is being used, so we can improve the user experience.
JWA uses “cookies,” pieces of information sent to your computer while a user is viewing a website. Cookies allow a website to “remember” how a visitor has used a website. None of the data collected through these methods is associated with any personally identifiable information.
JWA may collect personal information that you voluntarily provide when you: respond to polls or surveys, add content or comments to our websites or blog, register for electronic mailings, sign up for additional services, or communicate with us by mail, telephone, or electronically.
As a non-profit organization, JWA is exempt from the COPPA law. It is vitally important to JWA that young people using our site(s) are safe, and that the experience is appropriate to a young child. Therefore, JWA applies COPPA-like precautions to notify parents, collect information, and manage its youth-oriented websites.
How can I access, change, or delete personally identifiable information?
Should a user wish to have his/her information removed, he/she is required to contact JWA and request that personal information be permanently removed.
What kinds of security measures does JWA take to safeguard personally identifiable information?
JWA uses general best practices to protect the confidentiality, security, and integrity of personal information collected on jwa.org or any of its subsites. Personal information collected by JWA is stored securely and only accessible to authorized employees.
JWA may disclose personal information when it is required to do so by law, including but not limited to disclosure to law enforcement or other government officials in connection with an investigation of fraud, intellectual property infringement, or other activity that is illegal or may expose a user or JWA to legal liability. In addition, in the event of a merger, acquisition, reorganization, bankruptcy, or other similar event, JWA’s user information may be transferred to our successor or assignee.
Users may gain access to websites that are not operated by JWA through hypertext links on site pages. JWA provides these links purely as a service to users; the inclusion of a link does not imply endorsement by JWA of the website linked to. JWA assumes no responsibility for any material outside of the websites operated by JWA, including any websites which may be accessed through links on a website operated by JWA.
Unless otherwise indicated one one of JWA’s websites, JWA is not sponsored by or affiliated with the linked websites. Trademarks used in connection with linked websites are not trademarks of JWA. JWA specifically disclaims responsibility for anyone under 13 years of age viewing material intended for adults on a website accessed through a link provided on a JWA-affiliated website.
