Our Commitment to Privacy
Families Advocating Intelligent Reform values your privacy. To better protect your privacy, we provide this notice explaining our online information practices and the choices you can make about the way your information is collected and used.
Web Sites this Policy Covers
This policy applies to the following sites: NJFAIR.org, NJ-FAIR.com, NJFAIR.net, NJFAIR.info, NJFAIRLegal.com, FAIR-Volunteer.com, NJFAIRNews.com, NJFAIREducate.com and any future NJFAIR sites.
Personal Information We Collect
On some areas of our site, you are prompted to provide us with personal information when you, for example, make a donation, order products, register to receive newsletters, register for an online course, apply to be a volunteer, or fill out a petition. Also, some areas of our site require personal information before access is granted. The types of personal information collected at these pages vary, but may include the following kinds of general information:
- Phone number
- Credit/Debit Card Information
In the future we may have sites or some pages, you can submit information about other people. For example, if you order a gift online and want it sent directly to the recipient, you will need to submit the recipient’s address. In this circumstance, the types of personal information collected are:
We may from time to time give readers the opportunity to participate in online surveys to provide feedback on aspects of our ministry. These surveys are always optional, and data collected in them will only be used in aggregate, to better understand how people respond to our ministry efforts and how those efforts might be improved.
The Way We Use Personal Information
We use the information you provide about yourself when placing an order to complete that order.
We would use the information you provide about someone else when placing an order to ship the product and to confirm delivery. We use email addresses to fulfill your requests for future newsletter subscriptions and to answer the email we receive.
We also use email addresses and mailing addresses to send updates about various activities, if requested to do so. To exclude yourself from any of these mailings, electronic or postal, please contact us.
We use other information we collect about you or that you provide or give us access to online (“Non-Identifying Information”) to evaluate use of the Site and to determine which areas we need to improve. By evaluating usage patterns, demographic data, interests and general behavior, we are able to better understand and serve you. This information is used exclusively in aggregate form. This Non-Identifying Information includes data such as how many persons visited a particular page or activity, the length of their visit, the average age of our visitors on the Site or a particular webpage on the Site, and the preferences of our visitors.
Certain Non-Identifying Information would be considered a part of your Personal Information if it were combined with other identifiers in a way that enables you to be identified. However, the same pieces of information are considered Non-Identifying Information when they are taken alone or combined only with other Non-Identifying information. We may combine your Personal Information with Non-Identifying Information and aggregate it with information collected from other Site visitors to attempt to provide you with a better experience, to improve the quality of the Site, and to analyze and understand how our Site is used. We may also use the combined information without aggregating it to serve you specifically, for instance to identify products or services we think may be of interest to you.
Sharing Information with Third Parties
We will not in any way share any of our information with any thrid party.
Please note that if you post Personal Information online, for example, on one of our public forums such as a message board or chat room or as part of your user profile, that information can be viewed, collected and used by third parties. Although we strive to protect our users’ privacy, we cannot guarantee the security of information you post in these forums and have no control over how such third parties may use your information. You disclose such information at your own risk.
Except as otherwise provided in this policy or required under law, we reasonably endeavor to ensure that we never intentionally disclose any Personal Information about you as an individual user to any third party without having received your permission (through opting in or similar procedures). You agree that we may contact you based on the information you provide us.
We will release specific information about you or your account to comply with any valid legal inquiry or process such as a search warrant, subpoena, statute or court order.
Our Commitment to Data Security

NJ FAIR uses Internet Encryption Software, Secure Socket Layer (SSL) Protocol when collecting or transferring sensitive data such as credit card information. Any information you enter is encrypted at your browser, sent over the public Internet in encrypted form, and then de-encrypted at our server. Once we receive your credit card information, it is accessible only to a our third party collector – Paypal’s staff that have been specially trained in processing this information. If donations are mailed to Families Advocating Intelligent Reform, the information is kept private in a locked file and only available to the Executive Commitee on a need to know basis.
Our Commitment to Children’s Privacy
Protecting the privacy of children is extremely important. For that reason, we never collect or maintain information at our website from those we know are under 13, and no part of our website is designed to attract anyone under 13. If stories include children under 13, only their initials should be used or a faticious name.
