CGJA Privacy Policy

A. The California Grand Jurors’ Association (CGJA) Privacy Policy covers how we collect, use, disclose, transfer and store your information that you provide to us when you order merchandise, publications or services on our website or submit an application to join CGJA.

B. What user information do we collect?

  1. Personal Information – CGJA requires the provision of Personally Identifiable Information (PII) when a person applies for membership to our association or orders merchandise, publications or services. We regard PII as information that someone can use to identify or contact you in person, such as:

i) Real name, mailing, billing and shipping addresses, telephone number, email address,

ii) As applicable, county of grand jury service and years served and completed on a California grand jury.

  1. Financial Data – Credit card and other financial account information, expiration date, and verification code.
  2. Web Usage Data – No PII is revealed, examined, or captured to recognize visitor data, analyze site traffic, or to mine PII.

C. How do we use the information we collect and do we share the information we receive?

  1. Personal information is used for distributing the CGJA Journal, merchandise sales, processing donations, processing CGJA membership applications, and registering persons for CGJA trainings and conferences.
  2. CGJA discloses PII only to persons within CGJA and to its service providers that (i) have a need to know that information in order to process it on behalf of CGJA or to provide CGJA products and services, and (ii) have agreed not to disclose it to others.
  3. CGJA may maintain links to other websites. This Privacy Policy applies only to and not to other websites accessible from CGJA or that you use to access CGJA, each of which may have privacy policies materially different from this Privacy Policy. If you visit other websites through a link on CGJA’s site, CGJA is not responsible for the privacy practices or content of those sites.
  4. CGJA does not provide PII to third parties for marketing purposes. We reserve the right to disclose your PII as required by law and when we believe that disclosure is necessary to protect the rights, property or safety of CGJA or others, respond to claims and/or to comply with a judicial proceeding, court order, or legal process served on us.
  5. You may choose not to provide CGJA with PII or you may turn off cookies in your browser by changing its settings. If you make these decisions, you may continue to use the Online Services and browse its pages. However, CGJA cannot process orders or registrations without your PII.
  6. In the event that CGJA undergoes a business transition such as a merger, acquisition or dissolution, we may not be able to control how your personal information is treated, transferred, or used. If such an event occurs, your PII may be treated like any other CGJA asset and sold, transferred, or shared with third parties, or used in ways not contemplated or permitted under this Privacy Policy, without notice to you or your consent.
