Privacy Policy

The NJSO considers your privacy to be very important. To better protect your privacy, we provide this privacy policy notice (“Privacy Policy”) explaining our online information practices and the choices you can make about the way your information is collected and used.

1. Data We Collect and How It May Be Used

1.1 Requested Information.

There are pages on the Sites where we request specific information about you, in order to register you for membership, process donations, process ticket purchases and other transactions, fulfill your requests for information, communicate with you regarding transactions, and keep your knowledge about our products and services current. You may choose not to provide requested information, but then you might not be able to take advantage of some of the features in our Sites. Whenever we collect information from you, we may also save such information so that we do not need to ask you for it repeatedly. The types of personal information collected and saved at these pages include but are not limited to:

  • Contact Information such as name, email address, billing address, shipping address and phone / fax numbers.
  • Financial Information such as credit/debit card information.
  • Transactional Information as pertaining to your activities in purchasing tickets, making donations, posting content, etc.
  • Information you provide as feedback, comments in community discussions or if you contact us directly.
  • Technical Information collected in our logs. Such information may include standard web log entries for each page served that contain your IP address, page URL, and timestamp. Our logs help us to diagnose problems with our servers, to administer our Sites, and to otherwise provide our service to you. Our logs and other technical records are stored indefinitely.
  • Membership Information to include your user ID and password, additional identification questions/answers, and your preferences regarding receipt of informational e-mail messages from NJSO.

1.2 Registration.

You may register for an NJSO account on our Sites so that we can store your contact information and other preferences, and so that you will not need to retype this data the next time you access our Sites. Note that you can browse the Sites without formally registering, however, you will need to register in order to take advantage of particular Site features such as purchasing tickets. In addition, the registration form may give you the opportunity to receive e-mail messages from us containing NJSO news information as well as updates on our new products and services. When you register for membership on the Sites, we provide you with the opportunity to “opt out” of receiving any catalog, product, service or other informational emails from NJSO. If you choose to “opt out,” we will only use your return email addresses to answer your email messages that we receive, and to provide necessary status information regarding your purchases or your account. Such addresses are not used for any other purpose and are not shared with outside parties.

1.3 Aggregate Information.

We may use non-identifying and aggregate information to better design our Sites and to share with business partners. We also use this demographic information in evaluating new products that may be made available from NJSO.

1.4 Automatic collection of information.

Like many web Sites, our Sites may periodically utilize a technology called "cookies" to improve your experience in using the Sites, as well as our efficiency in processing your transactions. A cookie is a small data file that a web server can deliver to your browser, which is then stored on your computer's hard drive. Cookies are designed to permit us to provide better or more personalized service when you are visiting our Sites.

You can set your browser to notify you when you receive a cookie, providing you with as much control as you wish as to the decision to accept/reject the cookie, and deletion of the cookie upon leaving our web Sites. Please note, however, that if your browser does not accept cookies, you may not be able to actually complete purchase transactions through NJSO or make other uses of the Sites. Please refer to your browser's help information for details on setting cookie notification services.

1.5 Tracking Information.

Occasionally we employ tracking devices (e.g., "web beacons," single-pixel GIF files, etc.) for marketing purposes. We may also track computer source information from which people contact us, such as Internet domains and IP addresses. From time-to-time, we gather information concerning the "referring" domain that was visited prior to viewing our Sites, and the "destination" domain that may be visited after leaving our Sites. Information automatically collected is used to identify and analyze the trends and statistics of visits to our web Sites and to make our Sites more responsive to the needs and interests of our customers.

2. Links to Third Parties’ Sites

The Sites may contain links to other third party organizations' sites. Please note that NJSO is not responsible for the privacy policy, practices or content of such sites. Our links to third party sites do not imply any endorsement of the material or information on such other sites. Users are encouraged to review the privacy policy of each linked site before sharing personal information on such sites.

3. Disclosure of Information

3.1 Information about our customers is important to our business, and we are not in the business of selling or distributing it to others. There may be times when we will need to disclose your information to our providers, contractors or distributors for the purpose of processing your transactions or otherwise. Before doing so, we will require the organizations receiving such information to commit to the same level of protection for your information as is provided in this Privacy Policy.

3.2 In compliance with the CAN-SPAM act we do not sell, trade or rent our emailing list for commercial purposes. If you wish to no longer receive our emails, you may click “unsubscribe” at the bottom of NJSO emails that you may receive.

3.3 Although our general policy is that we do not disclose information that you provide to us, we do reserve the right to access, preserve and disclose any submitted information or otherwise use information we have received about you: (1) in response to subpoenas, court orders, legal process or when otherwise required by law; (2) to establish, protect, or exercise our legal rights or defend any legal claims; (3) to protect our rights and property; (4) if we believe it is necessary in order to investigate, prevent or take action regarding unauthorized distribution of intellectual property, illegal activities, fraud or situations involving potential threats to the safety of any person; (5) to resolve disputes or to investigate problems. We may disclose or access information whenever we believe in good faith that the law so requires or if we consider it necessary to do so to maintain service and improve our Sites, products and services. Specifically, we may use information such as your IP address to help diagnose problems with our server, to manage our Sites or to enhance our Sites based on usage data.

4. Choice and Consent

By providing personal and business information on our registration form and by accepting any cookies provided by NJSO, you consent to our collection and use of information in accordance with this Privacy Policy. If you do not agree to the provisions of this Privacy Policy, you can refuse to register, refuse to accept cookies, or refuse to volunteer optional information. Refusal may result in the inability to conduct an online transaction. Call Patron Services at 1.800.ALLEGRO (255.3476) to complete your transaction if you do not wish to submit your information online. If you wish to no longer receive direct mail or telephone marketing offers from us, please email [email protected] and request to be placed on the “Do Not Mail” and/or “Do Not Call” lists. If you wish to no longer receive email offers from us, select the “unsubscibe” option at the bottom of any NJSO email.

5. Data Security

5.1 It is not possible for web Sites to achieve perfect security. We do, however, take commercially reasonable physical, electronic, and managerial precautions using widely accepted methods to safeguard the security of your information against inadvertent disclosure to unauthorized persons. This protection does not extend to Internet e-mail messages sent outside the Sites directly to and from individual e-mail addresses.

5.2 Note that your NJSO membership account is password protected. You understand and agree to keep your login username and password confidential, and accept all consequences and liabilities resulting from your disclosure of such login information. If you lose control of your password, you may lose substantial control over your personal information and may be subject to legally binding actions taken on your behalf. Therefore, if your password has been compromised for any reason, you should immediately notify NJSO and change your password.

6. Our Commitment To Children's Privacy

Protecting the privacy of the young is especially important and we share the view that children's use of the Internet and e-mail requires special consideration regarding privacy and information protection. We do not knowingly collect any information from any minors, and we comply with all applicable federal and state privacy laws including the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) and the associated Federal Trade Commission (FTC) rules for collecting personal information from minors. We do not knowingly collect any information from persons under the age of 13.

7. International Users

Notwithstanding the fact that you may be accessing the Sites from a non-U.S. physical location, by visiting our Sites and providing us with data, you acknowledge and agree that we may collect, store, receive and transmit your data both inside and outside the United States. You agree that given the international nature of the Internet, we may use, store, receive and transmit collected data for the purposes identified in this Privacy Policy outside your resident jurisdiction.

8. Access to Your Information

You can access all your personally identifiable information that we collect online and maintain through your account home page. We use this method to allow you to correct, amend or delete any inaccurate entries, and to better maintain and safeguard your information. To protect your privacy and security, we will also take reasonable steps to verify your identity before granting access or making corrections.
