Privacy Policy

Information Collection and Use — 
Rutgers NJ Data Book is the sole owner of information collected on this site. We will not sell, share, or rent this information other than as specified in this policy.

Our website offers opportunities for visitors to register for informational mailings. These registration forms are often linked to mailing lists and require users to give contact information (such as name and email address). We use this contact information to send users information about events, news updates, publications, and new initiatives. Users may opt-out of receiving future mailings at any time (see the choice/opt-out section below).

Sharing and Usage
 — We will never share, sell, or rent your personal information with third parties for their commercial, marketing or promotional use. When we enter into contracts with third parties to assist in improving user services (for example, providing website support services) the service providers are prohibited from using any of your personal information for their own purposes.  They are, in all instances, required to maintain the confidentiality of the information we provide to them.

We may disclose or report personal information when we deem such disclosure is required under the law, for example,  to comply with a legal process such as court order, subpoena, search warrant, or law enforcement request.

Use of Web Technologies
 — We use a variety of technologies on our site. Among these are cookies; a piece of information that our websites provide to your browser when you visit our sites. Cookies allow us to verify the login status of customers using services linked directly with our website, track point of entry to point of registration for those users participating in our email signup programs, and track and measure the success of a particular email blast. Cookies also allow us to track overall site usage and determine areas users prefer, enabling us to make your visit to our website easier by recognizing you when you return and helping to provide you with a customized experience. Usage of a cookie is in no way linked to any personally identifiable information while on our site. If you choose to disable cookies, you may still use our site; however, you may have limited access to some areas within our websites.

We also keep track of activity on our website via log files stored on our web servers. We collect information such as IP address, browser type and version, and pages you view. We also keep track of how you got to our site and any links you click on to leave our site.  This information is not linked to any email addresses or other information you submit. Once you leave our site, we do not track you. We use your website activity to assist us in offering you a personalized Web experience, assist you with technical support, diagnose problems with our server, administer our websites and to tailor our informational offerings to you.

Security
 — We take every precaution to protect the confidentiality and security of your personal information by using industry-recognized security safeguards such as firewalls, coupled with carefully developed security procedures to protect your information from loss, misuse or unauthorized alteration. When we ask for sensitive information, such as credit card numbers, we protect it through the use of encryption during transmission, such as the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol.

Rutgers’ Center for Government Services takes care to reinforce the importance of our website visitors' security and privacy among our employees. Our employees are trained and required to safeguard your information and, using physical, electronic and procedural safeguards, we restrict access to personal information to those employees and agents for business purposes only.

Notification of Changes
 — If we decide to change our privacy policy, we will post those changes on the website, so our users are always aware of what information we collect, how we use it, and under what circumstances, if any, we disclose it.
