Website Statistics

Like most websites, Jconnect.org collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. We collect this data to better understand how our visitors use our website. From time to time, we may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of our website.

We may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to the website. For instance, we may monitor the most popular parts of the website. We may display this information publicly or provide it to others.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Some visitors to Jconnect.org choose to interact with our site in ways that require us to gather personally-identifying information to provide a personalized experience. We do not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. Visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities. However, if visitors engage in behavior that can reasonably be construed as abuse, fraud, or hostile attacks on the website, they waive their right to privacy for any personally-identifying information they have provided, including their IP address.

Protection of Personally Identifying Information

We disclose personally-identifying information only to those of our employees, contractors and affiliated organizations and their employees that:

  • Need to know that information to process it on our behalf or to provide services available on our site
  • Have agreed not to disclose it to others

We will not share, rent or sell personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to our employees, contractors and affiliated organizations and their employees, as described above, we disclose personally-identifying information only when required to do so by law, or when we believe in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of our website, third parties or the public at large.

If you are a registered user of our website and have supplied your email address, we may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback through surveys, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with the site. Only those who have opted in to receive a personalized Event Email will be sent this type of communication. If you send us a request (for example via support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. We take all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of personally-identifying information.
