Part One: Information Collection and Use
A. What kinds of information does the Junior League of Washington Collect?
Members: When you register to use our Site, we collect PII from you such as your name, e-mail address, phone numbers, and mailing address. We also collect the PII that you provide when using the interactive services available on our Site, such as JLW store purchases, event registration, dues payments, and any PII you send to us by e-mail.
Visitors: The only PII we collect about visitors is provided voluntarily. In general, you can visit our Site without telling us who you are or revealing any PII about yourself. However, some portions of our Site may be accessible only to users who have registered with us (and who may be asked to provide certain information as part of the registration or login process).
Generally: In addition, our Web servers may use “cookies” (described below) to collect information about visitors such as domain names, but not your e-mail addresses. This information may be aggregated to measure such things as the number of visits, average time spent on the Site, number of pages viewed, and methods by which our Site was found. The Junior League of Washington uses such information to evaluate the use of our Site and to continuously improve the content and services being provided.
At times we may ask you for contact information or conduct online surveys in order to better understand your needs so that we can provide you with a customized experience. If we wish to use this information other than as set forth in this statement, we will let you know at the time of collection. We will take commercially reasonable steps to safeguard this information from unauthorized access.
B. How is Collected Information Used?
Unless we specifically disclose it to you at the time of collection or subsequently obtain your approval, we will not make visitor or member-specific information that is gathered on our Site available to unaffiliated organizations for commercial purposes unrelated to the business of The Junior League of Washington. The Junior League of Washington and its affiliated vendors use this information to help us deliver the services you have requested, or to design or offer specific products or services that we believe will be useful to you. While we may use this information to contact you or to send materials to you for marketing purposes, we will take commercially reasonable steps to safeguard such information from unauthorized access by any other parties. As we strive to meet the needs of our members (and non-members alike), we may disclose PII we collect, as described above, to companies and vendors that perform marketing or other services on our behalf or with whom we have joint marketing agreements so that we may provide a full range of products and services to you. Our policy is to prohibit these companies from otherwise selling or disclosing the PII we provide.
D. Public Areas
Part Two: Disclosure of Information
A. Disclosure Required by Law
B. Disclosure to Operations and Maintenance Contractors
Third parties with whom we contract to maintain or service our Site or our organization sometimes have limited access to your PII in the course of providing products or services to us. These contractors include vendors and suppliers that provide us with technology, services, and/or content related to better operation and maintenance of our Site and vendors such as our attorneys and auditors. Access to your PII by these contractors is limited to the information reasonably necessary in order for the contractor to perform its limited function for the Site. We also contractually require that these contractors not use or disclose your PII for any purpose other than providing us with products and services.
C. Disclosure to Affiliated Organizations
We will share your PII with the Association of Junior Leagues International.
D. Disclosure to Linked Sites
E. Disclosure of Aggregate Information
The Junior League of Washington may provide non-PII about you to third parties that does not allow you to be identified or contacted and that is combined with the non-PII of other users. For example, we might inform third parties regarding the number of users of our Site and the activities they conduct while on our Site. Depending on the circumstances, we may or may not charge third parties for this Aggregate Information. We also may not limit the third parties' use of the Aggregate Information, except that we do require third parties to whom we disclose Aggregate Information to agree that they will not attempt to make this information personally identifiable by combining it with other databases or otherwise.
Part Three: Security
The Junior League Washington wants your PII to remain secure. That is why we maintain a dual level of security for our Site that utilizes both technological and procedural safeguards designed to protect the confidentiality of PII provided by you at our Site.
A. Technological Security
To help ensure the security of your information, unique passcodes or passwords are required to access a number of our Web Site services. In addition to requiring the use of a unique passcode or password, all payments processed through our Web Site require personal transactional information provided by you to be sent in a “Secure Session” using Secure Socket Layer encryption technology. This technology encrypts – or scrambles – your financial or credit card account information to help prevent unauthorized parties from reading it. We regularly test and update our technology to help protect your PII. However, such precautions do not guarantee that our Web Site is invulnerable to all security breaches. The Junior League of Washington makes no warranty, guarantee, or representation that use of our Site is protected from all viruses, security threats or other vulnerabilities and that your information will always be secure. When doing business with others, such as sponsors to whom you can link from our Site, you should consider the separate security and privacy policies of those other Sites.
B. Procedural Security
We do not ask you to disclose PII in an e-mail. Before you access your Junior League of Washington account online and are asked to disclose such information to us, you will be asked to enter your login name and password on our Site for authentication purposes.
Our normal practice is to send you an e-mail confirming significant changes made to your account online, such as, updates to the e-mail address registered with us, payments received, product purchases, event reservations, etc.
You can protect yourself by regularly logging into your online account to ensure that all activities are legitimate. Other tips on how you can protect yourself can be found at http://www.antiphishing.org/consumer_recs.html.
