Princeton Junior School Privacy Policy

November 20, 2013

Princeton Junior School is committed to respecting your privacy and protecting personal information that you share with us.  You may visit our website without revealing personal information. PJS may ask for personal information in some cases, in order to provide a service that you request.  Such information will be used by PJS only for official school business and will never be shared with an unaffiliated third party.  All information that we collect from you is subject to this Privacy Policy and Terms of Use.  By using this site, you are agreeing to these terms. 

Terms of Use: 

The purpose of the PJS website is to provide news and information about our school.  We will make all reasonable efforts to ensure the accuracy and timeliness of content.

No part of the PJS site or its contents may be copied, reproduced, modified, retransmitted, distributed, published, commercially exploited or otherwise transferred without written permission from PJS.

Information Collection and Use:

PJS does not track, collect or distribute personal information about site visitors.  We do, however, collect some information about site visits such as statistics that indicate the number of visitors and the number of requests for particular pages of files on the site.  These statistics do not contain personal information or email addresses and are primarily used to gather statistics that we use to evaluate and improve the website.

Student Privacy:

PJS is committed to protecting the privacy of our students and their families.  We do not post the full names of students on the public page of our website.  Images of students whose parents have agreed to our Media Policy may be found on public pages of our website.  These students are not identified by name.

Online Giving/Credit Card Information:

We are committed to the privacy of all our donors and to those making any kind of transaction via the PJS website.  If you provide credit card information for Annual Fund donations, the information you provide is never stored on our server.  Instead, when you click on the “submit” button, it is forwarded immediately to a third-party service provider for processing.  Industry standard Secure Sockets Layering (SSL) software is used to encrypt all of your credit card information.  The third-party service providers use your credit card information only to process your transaction (and for fraud prevention purposes) and are bound by contract to keep your credit card information confidential.

External Links:

At times, our PJS website may contain links to third party websites. Princeton Junior School is not responsible for the privacy practices of sites that link to or from www.princetonjuniorschool.org.  We encourage you to read the privacy policies of linked sites that you decide to visit as they may or may not share our standards.

Cookies

A “cookie” is a small text file containing a unique identification number that is transferred from a website to your computer while you are viewing a site.  The use of cookies is an industry standard, and they are currently used on most major websites. Cookies do not allow us to  learn any personally identifiable information.  It is possible to adjust your browser preferences to alert you of cookies or to refuse them, but this may alter your experience on the PJS website.  

Service Providers:  We engage certain trusted third parties to perform functions and provide services to us, that may include, without limitation, hosting and maintenance, customer relationship, database storage and management, and payment transactions

Sharing of Personal Information

We use personal data to keep track of our alumni, parents, grandparents and other friends of PJS for notification of events and other PJS information that may be of interest.  PJS will not send you email that you have asked not to receive.  If you wish to be removed from a mailing list, please contact us at privacy@princetonjuniorschool.org with a request to be removed from the list.  

Some of our forms may request that you share an email or mailing address with us.  Any personal information shared with us remains private.  We do not sell, rent or share your email or mailing address to a third party.

PJS reserves the right to update this Privacy Policy at any time.  The date at the top of the page will indicate the date of the most recent revision.
