Privacy Statement

New Jersey Judiciary Privacy Statement for the NJ Child Placement Advisory Council Review Website

When you visit this website you may provide us with two types of information: website use information collected automatically on an aggregate basis as you browse our website, and personal information you knowingly choose to disclose that is collected on an individual basis.

Section A. Information Collected and How it is Used 

This statement is designed to assist you in understanding how we collect, use and safeguard information you provide to us and to assist you in making informed decisions when using the CPAC website. It will be continuously assessed against new technologies, business practices and the needs of our visitors. CPAC was established pursuant to NJSA 30:4C-62.

  1. Website Information Collected and Stored Automatically

If you do nothing during your visit but browse through the website, read pages, or download information, we will gather and store certain information about your visit automatically. This information does not identify you personally. We automatically collect and store only the following information about your visit:

  1. The Internet domain (for example, “xcompany.com” if you use a private Internet access account, or “yourschool.edu” if you connect from a university’s domain) and IP address (an IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer whenever you are browsing the Internet) from which you access our website;
  2. The type of browser and operating system used to access our site;
  3. The date and time you access our site;
  4. The pages you visit; and
  5. If you linked to the CPAC website from another website, the address of that website.

We use this information to help us make our site more useful to visitors – to learn about the number of visitors to our site and the types of technology our visitors use. We do not track or record information about individuals and their visits. IP addresses are not linked to identifiable information.

  1. Personal Information

“Personal information” is information about a natural person that identifies a specific individual. Personal information includes such things as an individual’s name, address, and phone number. A domain name or Internet protocol address is not considered personal information.

We collect no personal information about you unless you voluntarily provide it to us by sending us e-mail. You may choose not to contact us and provide personal information by e-mail. Your choice not to participate in this activity will not impair your ability to browse this website and read or download any information posted on the site.

If you choose to provide CPAC with personal information – by submitting an email through our website and either pasting into the body of your email a document with personal information, or by submitting an attachment with personal information – we may use that information to respond to your message and to help us get you the information you have requested. The use of, and access to, your personal information is restricted to those who have the need to know that information to provide services or support to you. We share the information you give us with a government agency only if your inquiry relates to that agency, or as otherwise required by law. Moreover, we do not create individual profiles with the information you provide or give it to any private organizations. CPAC does not collect information for commercial marketing or sell any information provided by users through this website to third parties.

CPAC does do not plan to divulge personal information collected or information disclosed voluntarily, but may be required to do so pursuant to State or federal law.

If you believe that your personal information is being used for a purpose other than what was intended when submitted, please refer to the “Contact Information” section of this privacy policy.

  1. E-mail Privacy Warning

E-mail is not a secure medium. Personal information sent via the Internet can be intercepted. You may, therefore, wish to reconsider the advisability of sending messages that contain highly sensitive, personal information to this Internet address.
