Privacy Policy: NewCAJE.org Assures Your Privacy.

 

The New Coalition for Alternatives in Jewish Education wants you to know that any information you share with us is in good hands. This statement details privacy practices for our websites, NewCAJE.org and CAJE.org. Our policies conform to recognized principles of disclosure and informed consent.

 

First, let’s understand something: whenever you use the Internet or the World Wide Web, you’re sharing information.

 

Here's why: When you use email or visit a website, your computer "talks" with other computers. Each computer asks the others questions, and information passes among them. Except for commands and any detailed information you type in yourself, most of this process runs automatically and just saves you the bother of entering all kinds of technical codes. That's what makes the Web so easy to use.

 

In recent years, though, concerns about privacy and identity security have become a major topic on the news.

 

At NewCAJE.org, we believe you're entitled to make informed decisions when you share information with us. The questions and answers below should cover most frequently asked questions regarding privacy and security. If you have additional questions, please send your questions to webmaster@NewCAJE.org, and a participant of our staff will respond to your concerns.

1. Why does NewCAJE gather visitor information?

We gather information with several objectives in mind:

 

a. To interact quickly and accurately both with participants and prospective participants.

b. To improve the participation experience and use of NewCAJE.org.

c. To help us achieve our mission of excellence in Jewish education.

2. Why do I need a User ID and password to log on to NewCAJE.org?

The following refers to features that are still in process of being implemented for the websites NewCAJE.org and CAJE.org. NewCAJE participants are entitled to use all features of NewCAJE.org and/or CAJE.org, as these sites become fully developed and continue to evolve. New participants gain access at the time they register at NewCAJE.org. Since NewCAJE participation is required to register for a NewCAJE conference, those using the website to register for a conference also set a user ID that identifies you as a NewCAJE participant.

3. Does NewCAJE use “cookies” or put other software on my computer when I use NewCAJE.org and/or CAJE.org?

NewCAJE.org and/or CAJE.org do not use web “cookies” technology. NewCAJE.org and/or CAJE.org do not place any software on your computer when you log on. As a participant, however, you may choose to download curriculum materials or other texts directly from NewCAJE.org and/or CAJE.org, but downloads are entirely within your control and at your discretion.

 

3. What visitor information will NewCAJE.org and/or CAJE.org, when fully implemented, keep track of?

NewCAJE.org and/or CAJE.org will keep track of two different kinds of information: generic information and personally identifiable information.

 

Generic information is tracked automatically and doesn’t include any personal details:

 

*         When you log onto the Internet, your computer says to your Internet service, "Here I am; talk to me!" by requesting an IP (Internet protocol) address, sort of like asking for a seat at an electronic table with numbered seats. Your Internet service's computer responds by saying, "OK, for this session, you sit at #12." Some providers assign you a permanent or "static" IP address, but most use temporary ones. This helps assure your privacy, because it's difficult - if not impossible - to collect personal information about you via a temporary address.

*       Our site keeps a general list of visitors' IP addresses. This gives us broad, generic information such as how many AOL(r) users log onto NewCAJE.org and/or CAJE.org and helps us maintain our websites' compatibility with many different Internet services.

*         NewCAJE.org and/or CAJE.org record browser types and versions so we can answer questions such as, "How many of our visitors were using Internet Explorer 6  last month?" This tells us what features our visitors can use. This helps us keep NewCAJE.org and/or CAJE.org compatible with as many computers as possible.

*       We record how many people visited important pages on our site. This helps answer questions such as, "What topics or pages are drawing a lot of interest this month?"

*       We may also record which site or search engine referred you to NewCAJE.org and/or CAJE.org.

 

Personally identifiable information, as the name suggests, is information that is specific to individual participants.

 

*          Anything you enter when you fill out a registration or other form online is stored. This includes information such as your name, address, conference choices, demographic information related to participation, etc.

4. What will NewCAJE do with the generic information it collects?

 

Information about browsers helps us improve the way our site appears on your computer and make sure our site is up to date and compatible with your system.

 

Information about referring websites and IP addresses helps us develop relationships with other websites of related interest and also helps us monitor security for NewCAJE.org and CAJE.org.

 

Tracking generic information is also important in helping us plan for future iterations of NewCAJE.org and/or CAJE.org.

 

NewCAJE uses generic information regarding its participants for purposes of compiling research regarding its participants. Generic, statistical participation information may be reported as part of materials used for purposes such as public relations, grant applications, or filings required to maintain tax status.

 

5. What does NewCAJE do with the personally identifiable information it collects?

 

NewCAJE is committed to keeping your personally identifiable information secure. Personally identifiable information is requested for specific purposes, such as for participation or conference registration. NewCAJE makes use of this information only according to the policies delineated in this Privacy Policy and in the Terms & Conditions of NewCAJE.org, of which this Privacy Policy is part.

 

NewCAJE uses personally identifiable information regarding its participants for purposes of generating participation lists, internal research reports, and other internal, participation-related functions.

5. Does NewCAJE ever share such information? With whom?

 

NewCAJE sells our postal mailing list (names and addresses only) through AB Data of Milwaukee, WI, with whom we and the original CAJE organization have had a long-time and trusted relationship. Names and addresses of conference attendees are provided to EXPO vendors (vendors who exhibit at that conference) on a one-time basis. We also provide lists for one-time use to other Jewish organizations; this must be approved by NewCAJE management.

 

The sharing outlined above never includes participants’ telephone numbers.

 

When you share personally identifiable information as part of your conference application, that information is used to meet your needs as a conference attendee. In some cases, your name may be shared in order to meet your requests. (An example would be listing your name on a schedule for special transportation assistance during the conference.) In case of medical emergency during the conference, NewCAJE staff may need to provide EMTs or other emergency personnel with names or other basic information that technically falls under the category of “personally identifiable.” During conferences, NewCAJE staff participants have access to NewCAJE’s internal records via secure computer connection. Any NewCAJE computers transported to the conference are held under close supervision by NewCAJE personnel in the NewCAJE conference office established at the conference site for the duration of the conference. NewCAJE staff are trained and instructed to share personally identifiable information carefully and sensitively, on a need-to-know basis.

6. How does NewCAJE safeguard my privacy on rented or leased computer equipment used temporarily at NewCAJE conferences?

NewCAJE will post notices on and around computers being rented or leased for conference use. However, NewCAJE rents or leases such computers for conference session use only, and not for personal use, unless such computers are specifically designated “for personal use” by a sign. Policies regarding such computers will be included in the program book or in printed materials handed out at registration. NewCAJE will make every appropriate effort to see that all personally identifiable information is deleted from such computers prior to returning them to the renting or leasing organization, but NewCAJE cannot guarantee, warranty, or in any way assume responsibility for an individual’s use of his/her personally identifiable information or for safeguarding such information that the individual user does not personally delete after each use. For this reason, NewCAJE hereby notifies any users of rented or leased computer equipment to familiarize themselves with the standards and norms for use of personally identifiable information on public computers, and that they themselves are responsible for protecting their own privacy. All users of computers or equipment rented or leased for use at NewCAJE conferences or session agree to hold NewCAJE harmless and free from any and all responsibility for such individuals’ personally identifiable information entered or used via such rented or leased equipment.

7. How do I update or correct information about me and my NewCAJE participation?

At present, the best way to update or correct information about your NewCAJE participation is to write to the office for the conference for which you are registering. For NewCAJE 2, the conference office address is 354 Kenrick Street, Newton, MA 02458.

8. Can I ask NewCAJE not to send me email? Can I tell NewCAJE.org not to gather or keep track of information I've provided? How?

 When you register for NewCAJE participation or update your participation information (see above), you may specify whether or not your want NewCAJE to contact you via email. As a participant, you may change this option at any time by writing to NewCAJE 2, 354 Kenrick Street, Newton, MA 02458.

 

At present, NewCAJE does not make special provision for participants who do not want to participate in other NewCAJE participation functions, but participants may write to the NewCAJE office with any specific concerns.
