User Provided Information
We may collect three types of information that users provide when interacting with our Sites or through Other Communications:
- Personal Information - information that identifies (whether directly or indirectly) a particular individual, such as the individual’s name, home and seasonal mailing addresses, personal and work email address, and telephone number. When anonymous information is directly or indirectly associated with personal information, the resulting information also is treated as personal information.
- Anonymous Information - information that does not directly or indirectly identify, and cannot reasonably be used to identify, an individual.
- Aggregate Information - we may use personal and de-identified or anonymous information to create a third type of information - aggregate information. Aggregate information means information about groups or categories of individuals, which does not identify and cannot reasonably be used to identify an individual.
For example, we collect:

- Activity information about your use, and the use by any person(s) you authorize through your account, of our Sites and applications, such as the content you view or post, how often you use our services, and your preferences; and

A cookie is a text file sent by a web server and placed on your computer by your web browser. Cookies can be divided into two different types: session and persistent. Session cookies differ from persistent cookies primarily in that session cookies are temporary and expire and are normally typically deleted when you close your browser. Persistent cookies, in contrast, remain stored on your computer after you close your browser until they are deleted either because they expire or you delete them. JFNA may use session cookies and persistent cookies in connection with providing our Sites.
You may instruct your browser to refuse all cookies or to indicate when a cookie is being sent. However, if you do not accept cookies, part of the Sites may function differently and not as well and you may not be able to use some portions of our Sites.
The types of cookies we may use are:
- Session Cookies. We may use session cookies to operate our Site and for security purposes.
- Persistent Cookies. We may use persistent cookies to remember your preferences and various settings.
Cookies are often used in conjunction with other Internet technologies, such as web beacons or pixels, to understand behavior on the Internet.
Although we use the services of third parties in connection with these cookies, we do not allow the third-party service provider to use personal information about the users of our Sites for their own purposes.

We also use trusted third-party service providers or other third-party organizations helping to support our mission by collecting, storing, processing, or sharing personal information on our behalf, such as to complete your donations and other payments you make to JFNA. We engage with third parties to assist with supporting our operations and business needs, including vendors in the following areas: (i) credit card or payment processors; (ii) cloud storage providers; (iii) customer support tools; (iv) data collection platforms; (v) product development tools; (vi) IT and security providers; (vii) marketing tools; (viii) relationship management platforms; and (ix) analytics tools.
We will honor your choices concerning our collection, use, or sharing of personal information about you.

If you registered for an account on one of our Sites, whether to sign up for an event or otherwise, at any time you may request that we deactivate your account. You may also choose what information you supply when creating an account, registering for events, or otherwise interacting with us through the Sites. At any time, you may change your browser cookie settings, and you may also contact us to deactivate your account and stop receiving marketing or other communications at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our Sites use appropriate procedures to ensure the security of your personal information and to protect it from unauthorized access. In particular, when we ask you to enter credit card information, we use the top industry standard security protection, encryption, Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) transmission connection, and a secure server for information storage.
JFNA is committed to maintaining your confidence and trust, and we take reasonable security measures to protect your information, including the use of appropriate physical, technical, and administrative controls. However, no security system is impenetrable, and no transmission or electronic storage of information is guaranteed to be secure. We therefore urge you to always use caution when transmitting information over the Internet.
The Sites are not intended for children under 13 years of age. We do not knowingly collect or store any personal information about children under 13 years of age through the Sites, unless provided by a parent, guardian, or other adult seeking our services on behalf of a child.
We are based in the United States. The information you submit to us and that we automatically collect as a result of your using the Sites will be transferred to the United States, where the privacy and data protection rules may differ from those in your country. By using our Sites, you consent to the international transfer to, and storage of, your personal information in the United States.
