We also may collect certain non-personally identifiable information (i.e. generic information that does not identify you personally) when you visit any of our web pages such as the type of browser you are using, the type of operating system you are using, and the domain name of your Internet service provider.
Social Networking Services
If you choose to access, visit and/or use any third party social networking service(s) (“SNSs”) that may be integrated with the Website, we may receive personally identifiable information and other information about you and your computer, mobile or other device that you have made available to those services, including information about your contacts on those services. For example, some social networking services allow you to push content from the Website to your contacts or to pull information about your contacts so you can connect with them on or through the Website. Some social networking services also will facilitate your registration for the Website or enhance or personalize your experience on the Website. Your decision to use a social-networking service in connection with the Website is voluntary. However, you should make sure you are comfortable with the information your third party social networking services may make available to the Website by visiting those services’ privacy policies and/or modifying your privacy settings directly with those services.
Subject to the privacy settings you have set in your SNS account, you can email a friend and share certain SNS content or other materials you may choose to share with that friend. If you choose to use this aspect of our services we will ask you for your friend’s name, email address and/or SNS username. We will automatically send your friend a one-time email. This information is for the sole purpose of sending this one-time email.
How We Use and Disclose the Information.
We will use the personal information you provide online for the purpose(s) you have submitted. In addition, we may send to you an email offering information which we think you may be interested in or to ask you to participate in a survey. If you want us to stop using the personal information you provided, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
How We Share Your Personal Information.
We will not sell the personal information you provide. We will not share the personal information you provide, whether it is provided online or offline, with a third party except (a) for the purpose(s) you provided it; (b) with your consent; (c) as may be required by law or as we think necessary to protect our agency or others from injury (e.g. in response to a court order or subpoena, in response to a law enforcement agency request or when we believe that someone is causing (or about to cause) injury to or interference with the rights or property of another); (d) with other persons or companies with whom we contract to carry out internal site operations or our business activities (for example, sending out information or other item that you have requested on the site); and/or (e) notifying you when we make changes to one of our subscriber agreements or this policy.
Additionally, we may share certain of the personal information you provide online or offline with companies (whether or not affiliated with us) (i.e. third party companies). If you want us to stop sharing your personal information with these companies, please contact us at email@example.com. If you consent to receiving communications from non-affiliated companies, you may need to communicate with them directly if you later decide that you no longer wish to receive their communications or if you wish to change any data you provided online. In this instance, any changes or amendments to your personal information must be given directly to each company who communicates with you as these changes, amendments and/or deletions will not be exchanged between us and non-affiliated companies.
If we do share personal information to a non-affiliated company, to the extent practical, we request that they protect such information in a manner that is consistent with this policy. Such third party companies are not under our control, however, so we cannot guarantee how these non-affiliated companies will use your personal information.
With respect to any personally identifiable information we collect or receive from SNSs, we reserve the right to use, transfer, assign, sell, share, and provide access to such information and other non-personally identifiable information about you and your computer, mobile or other device in the same ways described in this Agreement as all of your other information.
Finally, we may transfer information, including any personally identifiable information, to a successor entity in connection with a merger, consolidation, sale of assets, bankruptcy, or other corporate or organizational change.
Use and Disclosure of Anonymous Information.
We sometimes use the non-personally identifiable information that we collect to improve the design and content of our site and to enable us to personalize your Internet experience. We also may use this information in the aggregate to analyze how our site is used, as well as to offer you programs, services or products that we believe may be of interest. Sometimes we share aggregate information with others, including affiliated companies and non-affiliated companies.
Collection of Information by Others.
Our site may contain links to other sites whose practices may be different than ours. You should check the other sites’ privacy notices since we have no control over information that is submitted to or collected by them.
We may offer information or services that are sponsored by or co-sponsored with non-affiliated companies. Based on our agreements with them, these third parties may obtain personally identifiable information that site visitors voluntarily submit. We have no control over the use of this information by these companies.
To enhance your online experience with us, many of our web pages use “cookies.” Cookies are text files placed on your hard disk by our web server to store your preferences. Cookies, by themselves, do not tell us your e-mail address or other personally identifiable information unless you choose to provide this information to us. However, once you choose to provide the personally identifiable information, this information may be linked to the data stored in the cookie.
As you use the Internet, a trail of electronic information is left at each web site you visit. This information, which is sometimes referred to as “clickstream data,” can be collected and stored by a web site's server. Clickstream data can tell us the type of computer and browsing software you use and the address of the web site from which you linked to the Website. We may use clickstream data as a form of non-personally identifiable information to anonymously determine how much time visitors spend on each page of the Website, how visitors navigate throughout the site and how we may tailor our web pages to better meet the needs of visitors. Any collection or use of clickstream data will be anonymous and aggregate.
From time to time we may supplement information you give us with information from other sources, such as information validating your address. Thus, information we obtain through the Website may be intermingled with and used in conjunction with information obtained through sources other than the Website, including both offline and online sources.
Discussions and Community Tools.
We may, from time to time, make chat rooms, forums, message boards, news groups and other community tools available to you. Please remember that any information that is disclosed in these areas becomes public information for other users to view and for us to use. For example, from time to time, we may use the content you write (including your name or screen name if you post it) for promotional purposes, in e-mail newsletters or elsewhere, and by using the Website and/or these chat rooms, forums, message boards, news groups, and other community tools, you agree that we may do so. You should exercise caution when deciding to disclose your personal information in these areas, since anyone - not just us - may use publicly posted information.
Our Commitment to Security.
We believe we have in place the appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and help prevent unauthorized access, maintain data security and correctly use the information we collect online as well as offline. JDC’s security standards are in validated compliance with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) and the Payment Application Data Security Standard (PA-DSS).
If you are visiting the Website from outside of the United States, your connection will be through and to servers located in the United States, all information you provide will be processed and securely maintained in our web servers and internal systems located within the United States. By using the Website, you authorize the export of personal information to the USA and its storage and use as specified above when you provide such information to us. This policy and our legal obligations are subject to the laws of the State of New York and the USA, regardless of the location of any user. Any claims or complaints must be filed in the USA in federal or state courts located in the State of New York, County of New York.
How You Can Access or Correct Your Personal Information.
For instructions on how you can access the personally identifiable information that we have collected about you online, or how to correct any errors in such information, please send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
To protect your privacy and security, we will take reasonable steps to help verify your identity before granting access or making corrections.
Special Note for Parents.
If you have concerns about this site or its services, wish to find out if your child is a member or has registered for one of our services, or wish to cancel your child's membership, please contact us at email@example.com. Our site will not knowingly accept personal information from anyone under 13 years old in violation of applicable laws, without consent of a parent or guardian. If you believe that your child under 13 has gained access to our site without your permission, you may contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Changes to this Policy.
Because our needs may change over time, we reserve the right, at our discretion, to change, modify, add, or remove portions from this policy at any time. If at any time in the future we plan to use your personally identifiable information in a way that differs from this policy, we will revise this policy as appropriate. Your continued use of the Website following the posting of any changes to this policy means you accept such changes. This policy is effective as of June 15, 2012.

JDC Policy on the Collection and Processing of Personal Data
Effective May 25, 2018
Every day JDC receives, uses and stores personal information about our clients, Board members, employees, program participants, service providers, volunteers, vendors, and contractors. It is important that this information is handled lawfully and appropriately in line with the requirements of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”), where applicable. JDC takes our data protection duties seriously, because we respect the trust that is being placed in us to use personal information appropriately and responsibly.
This Policy, and any other documents referred to in it, sets out the basis on which JDC will collect and process personal data where the GDPR is applicable. This policy does not form part of any employee’s contract of employment and may be amended at any time.
JDC is responsible for ensuring compliance with the GDPR and with this policy. Any questions about the operation of this policy or any concerns that the policy has not been followed should be referred in the first instance to Itamar Albek, JDC’s Chief Information Officer and Data Protection Officer or reported in line with JDC’s reporting policies.
What is Personal Data?
Personal data means data (whether stored electronically or paper based) relating to a living individual who can be identified directly or indirectly from that data (or from that data and other information in our possession).
Processing is any activity that involves use of personal data. It includes obtaining, recording or holding the data, organising, amending, retrieving, using, disclosing, erasing or destroying it. Processing also includes transferring personal data to third parties.
Sensitive personal data includes personal data about a person’s racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religious or philosophical beliefs, trade union membership, genetic, biometric, physical or mental health condition, sexual orientation or sexual life. It can also include data about criminal offences or convictions. Sensitive personal data can only be processed under strict conditions, including with the consent of the individual.
Data Protection Principles
In processing personal data, JDC will take all reasonable measures to ensure that data is:
- Processed fairly, lawfully and in a transparent manner.
- Collected for specified, explicit and legitimate purposes and any further processing is completed for a compatible purpose.
- Adequate, relevant and limited to what is necessary for the intended purposes.
- Accurate, and where necessary, kept up to date.
- Kept in a form which permits identification for no longer than necessary for the intended purposes.
- Processed in line with the individual’s rights and in a manner that ensures appropriate security of the personal data, including protection against unauthorized or unlawful processing and against accidental loss, destruction or damage, using appropriate technical or organizational measures.
- Not transferred to people or organizations situated in countries without adequate protection and without firstly having advised the individual.
Fair and Lawful Processing
The GDPR is not intended to prevent the processing of personal data, but to ensure that it is done fairly and without adversely affecting the rights of the individual.
In accordance with the GDPR, JDC will only process personal data where it is required for a lawful purpose. The lawful purposes include (amongst others): whether the individual has given their consent, the processing is necessary for performing a contract with the individual, for compliance with a legal obligation, or for the legitimate interest of JDC. When sensitive personal data is being processed, additional conditions will be met.
Processing for Limited Purposes
In the course of JDC’s operations, we may collect and process the personal data set out in the attached schedule. This may include data we receive directly from a data subject (for example, by completing forms or by corresponding with us by mail, phone, email or otherwise) and data we receive from other sources (including, for example, location data, business partners, sub-contractors in technical, payment and delivery services, credit reference agencies and others).
The legal grounds we are most likely to rely on for processing data are: 1) consent; 2) legal obligation; 3) contract; and 4) legitimate interest. We will only process personal data for the specific purposes set out in the attached schedule or for any other purposes specifically permitted by law. We will notify those purposes to the data subject when we first collect the data or as soon as possible thereafter.
JDC will not keep personal data longer than is necessary for the purpose or purposes for which it was collected. We will take all reasonable steps to destroy, erase or anonymize from our systems, all data which is no longer required.
Processing in line with Data Subject’s Rights
JDC will process all personal data in line with data subjects’ rights, in particular their right to:
- Confirmation as to whether or not personal data concerning the individual is being processed.
- Request access to any data held about them by a data controller.
- Request rectification, erasure or restriction on processing of their personal data.
- Lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority.
- Data portability.
- Object to processing including for direct marketing.
- Not be subject to automated decision making including profiling in certain circumstances.
JDC will take appropriate security measures against unlawful or unauthorized processing of personal data, and against the accidental or unlawful destruction, damage, loss, alteration, unauthorised disclosure of or access to personal data transmitted, stored or otherwise processed.
JDC will put in place procedures and technologies to maintain the security of all personal data from the point of the determination of the means for processing and point of data collection to the point of destruction. Personal data will only be transferred to a data processor if he agrees to comply with those procedures and policies, or if he puts in place adequate measures himself.
JDC will maintain data security by protecting the confidentiality, integrity and availability of the personal data, defined as follows:
- Confidentiality means that only people who are authorized to use the data can access it.
- Integrity means that personal data should be accurate and suitable for the purpose for which it is processed.
- Availability means that authorized users should be able to access the data if they need it for authorized purposes. Personal data should therefore be stored on the JDC’s central computer system instead of individual PCs.
Security procedures include:
- Entry controls. Any stranger seen in entry-controlled areas should be reported.
- Secure lockable desks and cupboards. Desks and cupboards should be kept locked if they hold confidential information of any kind. (Personal information is always considered confidential.)
- Data minimization.
- Encryption of data where appropriate
- Methods of disposal. Paper documents should be shredded. Digital storage devices should be physically destroyed when they are no longer required.
- Equipment. Staff must ensure that individual monitors do not show confidential information to passers-by and that they log off from their PC when it is left unattended.
- Transferring Personal Data Outside of the EEA
We may transfer any personal data we hold to a country outside the European Economic Area (‘EEA’) or to an international organization, provided that one of the following conditions applies:
- The country to which the personal data are transferred ensures an adequate level of protection for the data subjects’ rights and freedoms.
- The data subject has given consent.
- The transfer is necessary for one of the reasons set out in the Act, including the performance of a contract between us and the data subject, or to protect the vital interests of the data subject.
- The transfer is legally required on important public interest grounds or for the establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims.
- The transfer is authorized by the relevant data protection authority where we have adduced adequate safeguards with respect to the protection of the data subjects’ privacy, their fundamental rights and freedoms, and the exercise of their rights.
Subject to the requirements above, personal data we hold may also be processed by staff operating outside the EEA who work for us or for one of our suppliers. Those staff may be engaged in, among other things, the fulfilment of contracts with the data subject, the processing of payment details and the provision of support services.
Disclosure and Sharing of Personal Data
We may share personal data we hold with any member of our group, which means our subsidiaries and affiliates, and their subsidiaries and affiliates. We may share personal data we hold with select partners and funders listed in the attached schedule.
Subject Access Requests
Individuals must make a formal request for information we hold about them. Employees who receive a request should forward it to Itamar Albek immediately.
When receiving telephone inquiries, we will only disclose personal data we hold on our systems if the following conditions are met:
- We will check the caller’s identity to make sure that information is only given to a person who is entitled to it.
- We will suggest that the caller put their request in writing if we are not sure about the caller’s identity and where their identity cannot be checked.
Where a request is made electronically, data will be provided electronically where possible.
Changes to this Policy
We may amend this Policy from time to time in order to comply with our legal obligations and any changes in the data processing activities of your personal data. You can determine when this was last revised by referring to the “last updated” date at the top of this Policy.
If you have any questions related to data collection and processing under this Policy, please contact:
