Why We Collect Your Information
In order for us to provide you with access to the full breadth of functionality
on this website, we ask that you create a user profile, which consists of your Name,
location, contact information, role and other details that allow us to communicate
with you effectively and provide information relevant to you. We do not sell your
information to third-parties outside of the organization. In addition, as with most
web servers on the World Wide Web today, our server automatically logs information
about the environment of each visitor to a website. This type of data-collection
is standard, and consists of information that is not personally-identifiable, such
as Browser type, Operating System, page response times, and information for statistical
analysis to measure visitor interest areas and to provide you with the best experience
possible when browsing our website.
How We Collect Information
Below are some of the ways in which information may be collected online and how
it may be used.
- IP Address Collection
Our Web servers receive and temporarily record IP addresses from all users because
this information is automatically reported by their browsers each time they access
any JSS web page. We might use IP addresses for the following purposes:
- Diagnosing service or technical problems reported by our users, our technical staff,
or engineers affiliated with a specific IP-range-providing web company or ISP.
- Determining general geographic area (region/locality) of IP address to serve relevant
content and filter out irrelevant content for our users.
- Estimate number of users visiting JSS from different countries/regions/localities.
of enhancing the user experience. Cookies are small text files that are stored on
a visitor's browser and are used for keeping track of settings or data for a particular
our users' interests.
- Aggregate Information
Aggregate information about which pages visitors access or visit (for example, links
within the site, courses, etc.) is only used for internal review as we continue
to improve our Web site.
- User Profile
A user profile is created with information that you provide to us and is used for
authentication when you login to the site. It can also be used for a) verifying
your identity should you wish to contact us, b) marketing information useful to
the user, and c) displaying information on the site that is most relevant to the
Information Actively Provided by Our Visitors
There are several places where users may choose to provide personally identifiable
information about themselves or others. Unless we tell you otherwise, we will use
the information for the purpose the information was provided.

Our site contains links to other sites. We are not responsible for the privacy practices

We host discussion forums which are available for your use. You should NEVER
disclose any personal information. You should not enter any forum on the Internet
that requires you to disclose any personal information prior to entering. The forums
are monitored by our staff regularly.

our site and better serve our clients. When demographic information is collected,
we do not ask for any personally identifying information.

We caution children that they should not divulge their personal information on the
Web. Our forums are moderated, and while our moderators cannot prevent children
from divulging personal information, they use their best efforts to ensure that
personal information is not divulged. In compliance with CHILDREN’S ONLINE PRIVACY
PROTECTION ACT (COPPA), we not allow children of age 12 and under to
register online. If during routine audits, such an account is found, appropriate
measures are taken to remove from the system immediately.
