This Privacy Policy describes the type of information The Jed Foundation (JED) collects from the Websites (as defined in our Terms of Use) and how that information may be used. This Privacy Policy, together with our Terms of Use, as may be modified from time to time, govern your use of the Websites.

What information does JED collect?

You are not required to provide information, such as your name, address, email address, telephone number, demographic information, or other information, that might reasonably be used to identify you personally (“Personal Information”) to make general use of the Website. JED will only collect Personal Information when it is provided to us in an email, on a registration form or any other forms requesting users to provide Personal Information, in an online survey, or in other similar transmissions. For example, the Websites may offer you registration forms, or other forms that ask users to provide Personal Information.

To help us monitor usage patterns and to help us improve the Websites, we may use certain technologies, including cookies, to gather information that does not reveal your identity (“Generic Information”), such as information about the Internet Protocol address assigned to your computer, the number and frequency of visitors, and the Web pages visited. Generic Information may be used by us or shared with third parties. You can choose not to accept cookies by adjusting your Internet browser settings but, if you choose to do so, certain parts of the Websites may not function properly.

What does JED do with collected information?

We will use Personal Information we collect to contact you or to send you news and information relating to JED, our services, and/or the Websites. Select the unsubscribe option on email updates you receive from JED or one of our sites.

JED may share Generic Information we collect with our affiliates, contractors and other third parties as deemed necessary or desirable in JED’s sole discretion. For example, JED may use Generic Information to help diagnose problems with our servers and to administer the Websites.

JED may disclose Personal Information if required to do so by law or in the good-faith belief that such action is necessary to (a) conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on JED or its subsidiaries or affiliates; (b) protect and defend the rights or property of JED or the users of JED, and (c) act under exigent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of JED or the public.

Links to Third-Party Sites

The Websites may provide links one or more third-party Web sites. Even if a third-party Web site or the third party is affiliated with JED (through a business partnership or otherwise), JED is not responsible for the privacy policies or practices or the content of such third-party Web sites.


JED makes reasonable efforts to implement commercially reasonable safeguards to prevent the loss, misuse and alteration of the Personal Information we obtain from you. Unfortunately, data transmission over the Internet cannot be guaranteed to be secure, nor is any security system completely secure. JED does not guarantee the security of any information you transmit to us or provide to us online. We request that you do not send, and JED will not be liable for your sending sensitive or confidential information electronically.

Children Under the Age of 13

The Websites are not directed at children under the age of 13. If JED knows that a user is under the age of 13, we will NOT intentionally:

  1. Collect online contact information from that user without prior parental consent, except where used to respond directly on a one-time basis to a child’s specific request;
  2. Collect personally identifiable offline contact information from that user without prior parental consent;
  3. Give that user the ability to publicly post or otherwise distribute personally identifiable information without prior parental consent;
  4. Distribute to third parties any personally identifiable information of that user without prior parental consent; and
  5. Entice that user by the prospect of a special game, prize or other activity, to divulge more information than is needed to participate in the activity.
