II. WHAT TYPES OF INFORMATION DOES JWA COLLECT FROM USERS?
We may collect information about your activity on the Website (such as logging IP addresses) for routine system administrative purposes, to make our Website more interesting and useful, or to manage content delivery. For example, we use technology to track traffic patterns on the Website. Once you access any one of the Website, we use logs of database transactions and server interactions to track where you go and what you do on the site. We use this data to understand how the Website are being used, so that we may improve the user experience.
JWA uses “cookies,” which are pieces of information sent to your computer while you view a website. JWA may place cookies on your computer in order to collect aggregate information for site traffic analysis, such as the number of visitors to the Website and the number of webpages viewed on the Website. The aggregate information we collect through cookies helps JWA monitor how you and other visitors use the Website, which allows us to optimize the user experience and improve service. This information is not associated with any personally identifiable information.
JWA does not collect any other personal information that you do not expressly provide. JWA may collect personal information that you voluntarily provide when you, for example, respond to polls or surveys, add content or comments to our Website or blog, register for electronic mailings, sign up for additional services, or communicate with us by mail or telephone or electronically. JWA will not disclose your personal information to any third party without your consent, except as detailed below in Section V.
As a non-profit organization, JWA is exempt from the COPPA law. It is vitally important to JWA that young people using the Website 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 website.
IV. HOW CAN I ACCESS, CHANGE, OR DELETE PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION?
Should you wish to have your personal information removed from JWA’s server, you are required to contact JWA and request such removal.
V. 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 the Website. We use physical, electronic, and administrative safeguards to ensure that personal information is accessible only to authorized employees, agents, and officers of JWA who require such information to perform their jobs.
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.
Our Website may contain certain links to third parties’ websites (“Linked Sites”). Linked Sites are not reviewed, controlled, or examined by JWA in any way and JWA is not responsible for the content, availability, advertising, products or other materials of any such Linked Sites, or any additional links contained therein. These links do not imply JWA’s endorsement of or association with the Linked Sites. Unless otherwise indicated on the Linked Sites, JWA is not sponsored by or affiliated with the Linked Sites. Trademarks, copyrights and other intellectual property used in connection with the Linked Sites are not the intellectual property of JWA.
JWA provides Linked Sites purely as a service to users. In no event shall JWA be liable, directly or indirectly, to anyone for any loss or damage arising from or occasioned by the creation or use of the Linked Sites or the information or material accessed through these Linked Sites. JWA specifically disclaims responsibility for anyone under 13 years of age viewing material intended for adults on any such Linked Sites.

We do not investigate, verify, examine or authenticate User Submissions, and you agree that you are solely responsible for the content of your User Submissions. We are not required to use, display or distribute your User Submissions. You represent and warrant that your User Submissions and our authorized use of such submissions do not and will not infringe the rights of any third party including, without limitation, intellectual property rights, rights of privacy or publicity, or any other personal, legal or moral rights.
