Are Cookies Used on the Site?
Cookies are used for a variety of reasons. We use Cookies to obtain information about the preferences of our Visitors and the services they select. We also use Cookies for security purposes to protect our Registered Subscribers. For example, if an Registered Subscriber is logged on and the site is unused for more than 10 minutes, we will automatically log the Registered Subscriber off.

JeffCoSchoolBoardWatch.org uses login information, including, but not limited to, IP addresses, ISPs, and browser types, to analyze trends, administer the Site, track a user’s movement and use, and gather broad demographic information.

What partners or service providers have access to Personally Identifiable Information from Visitors and/or Registered Subscribers on the Site?
JeffCoSchoolBoardWatch.org has entered into and will continue to enter into partnerships and other affiliations with a number of vendors. Such vendors may have access to certain Personally Identifiable Information on a need to know basis for evaluating Registered Subscribers for service eligibility. Our privacy policy does not cover their collection or use of this information.

Disclosure of Personally Identifiable Information to comply with law.
We will disclose Personally Identifiable Information in order to comply with a court order or subpoena or a request from a law enforcement agency to release information. We will also disclose Personally Identifiable Information when reasonably necessary to protect the safety of our Visitors and Registered Subscribers.

How does the Site keep Personally Identifiable Information secure?
All of our employees are familiar with our security policy and practices. The Personally Identifiable Information of our Visitors and Registered Subscribers is only accessible to a limited number of qualified employees who are given a password in order to gain access to the information. We audit our security systems and processes on a regular basis. Sensitive information, such as credit card numbers or social security numbers, is protected by encryption protocols, in place to protect information sent over the Internet. While we take commercially reasonable measures to maintain a secure site, electronic communications and databases are subject to errors, tampering and break-ins, and we cannot guarantee or warrant that such events will not take place and we will not be liable to Visitors or Registered Subscribers for any such occurrences.

How can Visitors correct any inaccuracies in Personally Identifiable Information?
Visitors and Registered Subscribers may contact us to update Personally Identifiable Information about them or to correct any inaccuracies by emailing us at jeffcowatch@gmail.com

Can a Visitor delete or deactivate Personally Identifiable Information collected by the Site?
We provide Visitors and Registered Subscribers with a mechanism to delete/deactivate Personally Identifiable Information from the Site’s database by contacting jeffcowatch@gmail.com. However, because of backups and records of deletions, it may be impossible to delete a Visitor’s entry without retaining some residual information. An individual who requests to have Personally Identifiable Information deactivated will have this information functionally deleted, and we will not sell, transfer, or use Personally Identifiable Information relating to that individual in any way moving forward.

What happens if the Privacy Policy Changes?
We will let our Visitors and Registered Subscribers know about changes to our privacy policy by posting such changes on the Site. However, if we are changing our privacy policy in a manner that might cause disclosure of Personally Identifiable Information that a Visitor or Registered Subscriber has previously requested not be disclosed, we will contact such Visitor or Registered Subscriber to allow such Visitor or Registered Subscriber to prevent such disclosure.
