Privacy Policy

Your privacy is critically important to us.

At Down Syndrome Association of Jacksonville (herein referred to as DSAJ) we have a few fundamental privacy principles:

  • We don’t ask you for personal information unless we truly need it.
  • We will never share or sell your personal information submitted through this website.
  • We don’t collect or store sensitive information on our website hosting servers.

The Down Syndrome Association of Jacksonville operates DSAJ.org. It is DSAJ’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, DSAJ 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. DSAJ’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how DSAJ visitors use its website. DSAJ also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses with website form submissions. DSAJ only discloses IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that form submission IP addresses and email addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrator of the website.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to DSAJ websites choose to interact in ways that require DSAJ to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that DSAJ gathers depends on the additional information provided through the “Message” or “Question” textarea on our website forms. In each case, DSAJ collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with DSAJ. DSAJ 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 submitting certain website forms.

Aggregated Statistics

DSAJ may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites through services such as Google Analytics. However, DSAJ does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

DSAJ 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 company’s behalf or to provide services available at DSAJ websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using DSAJ websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. DSAJ 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, DSAJ discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when DSAJ believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of DSAJ, third parties or the public at large. If you are a user of a DSAJ website and have supplied your email address, DSAJ may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new products/services, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with DSAJ. We primarily use our blog to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. If you send us a request (for example via a website form, email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it without your personally identifiable information in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. DSAJ takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
