If you do nothing during your visit but browse through the Web site, 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 surfing the Web) from which you access our Web site;

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.

If You Send Us Personal Information

If you choose to provide us with personal information - as in an e-mail to an administrator or someone else, or by filling out a form with your personal information and submitting it to us through our Web site - we use that information to respond to your message and to help us get you the information you have requested. We may share the information you give us with another district, government agency, department, office or entity. We do not create individual profiles with the information you provide or give it to any private organizations. The District does not collect information for commercial marketing.

Section B. Personal Information and Choice

You may choose whether to provide personal information online. "Personal information" is information about a natural person that is readily identifiable to that specific individual. Personal information includes such things as an individual's name, address, and telephone 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, participating in a survey or completing an online form. You may choose not to contact us by e-mail, participate in a survey, or provide any personal information using an online form. Your choice to not participate in these activities will not impair your ability to browse the District Web site and read or download any information provided on the site.

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 sensitive, personal information to this Intranet address.

The District does not plan on divulging information collected or information disclosed voluntarily, but may be required to do so pursuant to a request under state's right-to-know laws such as the New Jersey Open Public Records Act, any common law right-to-know laws, other State or Federal laws or pursuant to court order.

If you believe your personal information is being used for a purpose other than what was intended when submitted, you may contact the Web contact as shown in the Contact Information Section of this statement.

Section C. Public Access to Information

In the District, laws exist to ensure that government is open and that the public has a right to access appropriate records and information possessed by government. At the same time, there are exceptions to the public's right to access public records that serve various needs including the privacy of individuals. Exceptions are provided by both state and federal laws. All the information collected at this site becomes public records that may be subject to inspection and copying by members of the public, unless an exemption in law exists.
