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.
  • Use of Cookies Our Web site may use cookies to keep track of the user’s session for the purposes 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 Web site. Among other things, we may use cookies to deliver content specific to 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 user.
