Collection of Information
While visiting the ACOJC Website, we will only gather user information that allows us to improve your user experience and afford content that matters most to you. The use of web tracking “cookies” is a normative practice on most websites to afford greater customization of the content around each visitor. Also, we will at times ask that you provide us with personal information while online in order to complete a transaction and/or donation. The type of information we collect typically, but not always, corresponds directly with the service you request. For instance, you can make donations, when requested you can offer your thoughts, opinions, prayers, concerns, ideas, personal experiences, questions and/or suggestions to our resources, contests, or broadcasts. The personal information you provide may also be used to improve the usability of, and information available on, our sites. In other words, at times we will ask you for more information, beyond just your name and contact information, than is needed to facilitate our response to your specific request. Your provision of such additional information is your acknowledgement that you consent to our use of such information to better serve you, our visitor, and others coming to our sites.
ACOJC will not sell, lease or rent its mailing list or any of your confidential information to any outside organization or individual. However, we may need to disclose personal information as required by law, such as a law, regulation, court order, subpoena, search warrant, in the course of a legal proceeding or in response to a law enforcement agency request, to enforce our Terms of Service, or site rules; or to protect the safety and security of our visitors and our sites.
