Website Privacy Policy

The Council on Compulsive Gambling of New Jersey, respects the privacy of the visitors to our website. As a result, we have developed this website privacy policy. This website privacy policy applies only to the operation of this website that directly links to this policy when you click on “privacy policy” in the Council on Compulsive Gambling of New Jersey website footer.

Through this website, Council on Compulsive Gambling of New Jersey will collect information that can identify you, such as your name, address, telephone number, e-mail address, and other similar information (“Your Information”) when it is voluntarily submitted to us (however, please see the information below regarding “IP Addresses” if you have a broadband connection). We will use Your Information to respond to requests you may make of us, and from time to time, we may refer to Your Information to better understand your needs and how we can improve our websites, products and services. We may also use Your Information to contact you and/or provide you with general information (like special product or advertising products or discounts) as well as information about our products and services. We may also enhance or merge Your Information with data obtained from third parties for the same purposes.

Any other information transferred by you in connection with your visit to this site (“Other Information” – that is, information that cannot be used to identify you) may be included in databases owned and maintained by Council on Compulsive Gambling of New Jersey or its agents. Council on Compulsive Gambling of New Jersey retains all rights to these databases and the information contained therein. Other Information we collect may include your IP Address and other information gathered through our weblogs and cookies (see below).

This site may collect web log information. Web log information is gathered when you visit one of our websites through the computer that hosts our website (called a “webserver”). The webserver automatically recognizes some non-personal information, such as the date and time you visited our site, the pages you visited, the website you came from, the type of browser you are using (e.g., Internet Explorer), the type of operating system you are using (e.g., Windows XP), and the domain name and address of your Internet service provider or ISP (e.g., SBC).

This website may use a technology called a “cookie”. A cookie is a piece of information that our webserver sends to your computer (to your browser file) when you access a website. When you come back to our site we will detect whether you have one of our cookies on your computer. Our cookies help provide you with additional functionality to the site and help us analyze site usage more accurately. For instance, our site may set a cookie on your browser that keeps you from needing to remember and enter a password more than once during a visit to the Council on Compulsive Gambling of New Jersey site.

This website uses Internet Protocol (IP) Addresses. An IP Address is a number assigned to your computer by your Internet service provider so you can access the Internet. Generally, an IP address changes each time you connect to the Internet (it is a “dynamic” address). Note, however, that if you have a broadband connection, depending on your individual circumstance, it is possible that your IP Address that we collect, or even perhaps a cookie we use, may contain information that could be deemed identifiable. This is because with some broadband connections your IP Address doesn’t change (it is “static”) and could be associated with your personal computer. We use your IP address to report aggregate information on use and to help improve the website.

You should be aware that this site is not intended for, or designed to attract, individuals under the age of 13. We do not collect personally identifiable information from any person we actually know is an individual under the age of 13 and is considered a minor.

Areas of this website that collect Your Information use industry standard secure socket layer encryption (SSL); however, to take advantage of this your browser must support encryption protection (found in Internet Explorer release 3.0 and above).

We may share Your Information with agents, contractors or partners of Council on Compulsive Gambling of New Jersey, in connection with services that these individuals or entities perform for, or with, Council on Compulsive Gambling of New Jersey. These agents, contractors or partners are restricted from using this data in any way other than to provide services for Council on Compulsive Gambling of New Jersey, or services for the collaboration in which they and Council on Compulsive Gambling of New Jersey are engaged. We may, for example, provide your information to agents, contractors or partners for hosting our databases, for data processing services, or so that they can mail you information that you requested.

The Council on Compulsive Gambling of New Jersey reserves the right to share your Information to respond to authorized information requests of governmental authorities or where required by law. In exceptionally rare circumstances where national, state or company security is at issue (such as a terrorist act attempt), Council on Compulsive Gambling of New Jersey reserves the right to share our entire database of visitors and customers with appropriate governmental authorities.

We may also provide Your Information to a third party in connection with the sale, assignment, or other transfer of the business of this website to which the information relates, in which case we will require any such buyer to agree to treat Your Information in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

As a convenience to our visitors, this Website may contain links to a number of sites that we believe may offer useful information. The policies and procedures we described here do not apply to those sites. We suggest contacting those sites directly for information on their privacy, security, data collection, and distribution policies.
