What Are Cookies and Do We Use Them?

ydcnj.org uses cookies to hold information our site may need to interact with you. A “cookie” is a small file stored by your web browser on your computer’s hard drive. Cookies allow us to recognize who you are when you arrive at our site by associating the anonymous identification numbers in the cookie with other information you as a customer have provided us. That customer information is stored on our secured database. At no time is your personally identifiable information (name, street address, and credit card number) stored within one of our cookies.

What Other Information Do We Collect?

We collect non-personal information about how users navigate through our web site. We aggregate this statistical information in order to improve our site, and we may share this information with our affiliates. This aggregated information does not include individual names or personal data, so it does not identify you.

Children’s Privacy

We do not knowingly collect any personal information from children under the age of 13 on our web site. We will not knowingly collect personal information from teens 13 through 15 without disclosing how the information will be used and notifying the teens that they should obtain their parents’ permission prior to submitting any personal information

Security Policy:

ydcnj.org is committed to doing its best to maintain the security of information collected on our site.

Transaction Security

When you submit sensitive information at ydcnj.org, your information is protected both online and off-line. We use Secure Socket Layer technology (SSL) to encrypt your personal and credit card information during the order checkout process, before it travels over the Internet. SSL technology is the industry standard for secure online transactions. While on a secure page, such as our Donate page, the lock icon on the bottom of your Web browser becomes locked. Collected information is stored in our secured database.
