This website uses cookies

We use cookies to analyze our traffic. If you would prefer not to receive cookies, you can configure your browser to refuse cookies at any time. If you choose to have your browser refuse cookies, it is possible that our site will not function properly when you view them.

You can opt-out at any time.

How do we collect information from you?

We obtain information about you when you use our website, for example, when you contact us about scheduling a tour. We do not use the information submitted through any forms on our website for marketing purposes.

Data on website visitors is exported to a third-party vendor. In this case it is Google Analytics.

When you leave comment on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection. An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: https://automattic.com/privacy/. After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.

What Type of Data is Collected and Why?

We collect an IP address from all visitors to our site. An IP address is not used in a way that can identify you personally. IP addresses are a way for us to determine if there are any website or server issues, analyze website traffic and usage, which pages you visit, links clicked, when you perform those actions, and so on, with the use of Google Analytics. This also includes what type of device was used and browser type.

We only ask for personal information if it’s needed to provide a service. This may include your name, DOB, email address, physical address, phone number, RFID tag, health details, ethnicity, genetics, and biometrics.

If you make a donation, your card information is not held by us, it is collected by our third party payment processor, NetworkforGood.com, who are GDPR compliant and specialize in the secure online capture and processing of credit card transactions.

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website. These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

Access Your Data & Right to be Forgotten

You have the right to access the collected data and receive a copy of that data at any time.

The right to be forgotten gives you the option to erase all personal data and stop further collection and processing of data. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

To best serve our users, we want to make it as easy as possible to request access to, recertification of, or deletion of any personal data we may have collected for the above marketing and analytics purposes. Please send all requests to info@jcys.org. This box is monitored and you will quickly be responded to with the next steps for processing your request.
