Like most website operators, The Budget Justice Coalition (BJC) collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. BJC’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how BJC’s visitors use its website. From time to time, BJC may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
Certain visitors to The BJC’s website choose to interact with The BJC in ways that require BJC to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that The BJC gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. In each case, The BJC collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with BJC. BJC does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.
The BJC may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its website. For instance, The BJC may monitor the most popular posts and may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, The BJC does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
The BJC discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on The BJC’s behalf or to provide services available at The BJC’s website, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. The BJC’s will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, The BJC discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when The BJC believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of The BJC, third parties or the public at large.
