What personal data we collect and why we collect it?

We collect some non-identifying basic information. This includes total number of visitors, pages viewed, and other non-identifying information. We use this general information to improve our website and to make your experience as smooth as possible.

When you subscribe to our newsletter

We ask for your name and email address so we can send you monthly JFON network updates and news stories.  If you make a tax-deductible gift on our donation page, we ask for your credit card information to process your donation(s) and to verify credit card data through a secure financial partner.

Ability to Opt-out

You can update or cancel your email newsletter subscription at any time by yourself. Just click on the link at the bottom of any of our newsletters and make changes on the form.

When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: https://automattic.com/privacy/. After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.


If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

Do we share your information?

We do not share, rent, or sell email addresses. We never have and we never will.

We may share with third parties our total website statistics regarding numbers of visitors and donations.  These statistics do not include any personally identifying information. The information given includes: total number of donors, total amount of donations for specific periods of time,  and referring websites. General information of this kind helps us learn how to encourage fundraising relationships.

We use one or more third-party financial partners to process our credit card transactions. They receive the credit card number and other personal information of our donors only to verify credit card numbers and to process credit card transactions in a secure environment.

How can you protect your personal information?

If you wish to remain anonymous, but want to donate and receive a tax-deductible receipt, please contact our office to assist you. We respect your wish for privacy and have a specific method for handling anonymous donations.

You can also send totally anonymous donations simply by mailing a money order to us at the address found below. However, if you do not provide your name and address we will not be able to send you a tax-deductible receipt.
