We may use cookies and web beacons to collect information about your use of the website and Services. A cookie is a small piece of information sent by a website that is stored on your computer hard disk by your computer’s browser. A web beacon is an embedded image on a website that monitors a user’s activity.

We may make use of both session and persistent cookies. Session cookies exist for only so long as your web browser remains open. Persistent cookies last from visit to visit, and do not go away when you close your browser. Managing cookie preferences differs from browser to browser so please refer to your browser for further information. If you would like to disable cookies and web beacons from JS Foundation, please use the help function in your web browser to restrict cookies from our website. However, if you block cookies from JS Foundation, you will not be able to make use of the Services.

How Information is Shared.

We may share your information within JS Foundation and its affiliates and subsidiaries. We may also share your information with third-parties with whom we have a relationship, for the purpose of managing the website or Services.

JS Foundation contractors sometimes have limited access to your information in the course of providing products or services to JS Foundation. These contractors include vendors and suppliers that provide us with technology, services, data analysis, research, advertising and marketing assistance and/or content for the operation and maintenance of the JS Foundation website. We contractually require that our operations and maintenance contractors: 1) protect the privacy of your information consistent with this Privacy Policy and 2) not use or disclose your information for any purpose other than providing the limited service or function for JS Foundation.

Additionally, in the event of a corporate change in control resulting from, for example, a sale to, or merger with, another entity, or in the event of a sale of assets or a bankruptcy, JS Foundation reserves the right to transfer information to the new party in control or the party acquiring assets. In the event of such a change, your information will continue to be treated in accordance with this Privacy Policy unless any changes to the Privacy Policy are made in accordance with the section below that discusses “Changes.”

In so much as personal email is generally not encrypted, we request that no Personal Information be sent to us via email.

We will retain your Personal Information as long as an account is active or as needed to provide you Services. You may, at any time, instruct us to remove Personal Information, but you should be aware that it is not technologically possible to remove each and every record of the information you have provided to JS Foundation from our servers.
