  1. Information Collected by JGI

JGI recognizes the importance of protecting your personal information; it gathers personal information when voluntarily submitted by you online. When we refer to “personal information” we mean any information about an identifiable individual, whether it concerns your email address, where you live, your credit card or bank account information where applicable. If you make a donation, personal information will be collected from you in order to process that donation and provide you with a charitable receipt. If you purchase any products from our website, personal information will be collected to process your request, and deliver the goods. If you make an online request for information, personal information will be collected from you in order to reply.

JGI may use personal information collected from you online to send you information about new fundraising campaigns or initiatives, or updates about its public education and advocacy efforts. We may also send you the JGI newsletter, service announcements about the site and invite you to participate in online surveys and contests. If you elect not to receive these materials, we will not send them to you. Please let us know if you do not wish to receive the information by advising us at

  1. Publicly Sharing Your Information

JGI often receives information from website visitors who have successfully participated in our programs and/or used our resources. In certain instances, we would like to share the comments and stories we receive by posting this information on our website. JGI will not post information in any way that specifically identifies the sender of that information unless the sender approves it. Nowhere on our website will we post personally identifiable information about minors without first receiving the express written consent of their parent or guardian.

Third party service providers may be engaged by JGI to perform a variety of functions, such as to mail our brochures, to process your donation, to fulfill your order or to provide technical services for our website, etc. These third party providers have access to personal information if needed to perform the functions for which they are retained. However, we direct that those companies may only use such personal information for the purpose of performing their roles and may not use it for any other purpose. In these cases, when information is shared, JGI will demand reasonable assurance that the third parties will protect your information in conformity with our privacy practices.

JGI may also on occasion share your name and contact information with like-minded organizations. If you do not wish to have your name and contact information shared with like-minded charities, you can contact us by email at to have your name removed. JGI reserves the right to divulge personal information if it is required by law.
