The information we collect is used strictly for internal purposes, except as noted below. The data allows the NJSBA to better understand our members and customers, thereby helping us fulfill our mission of better serving the legal profession.
The demographic information that we collect online is used to improve the content of our website, notify members and customers about updates to our website, and enable us to reach out to share information about the association.
MEMBER AND CUSTOMER DEMOGRAPHIC INFORMATION
The NJSBA, and its educational arm NJICLE, collect demographic information from our members and customers on a voluntary basis. The NJSBA believes that by collecting and analyzing information about race, gender and other demographic variables, we can better serve our members and customers. For instance, each year the Board of Trustees analyses existing information about the NJSBA membership in order to designate what groups should be considered underrepresented, as per the bylaws.
All responses are kept private and it is never the case that a person is required to provide information in order to be a member or customer. The goal is only to serve all of its communities in a more effective manner.
WEBSITE VISITOR INFORMATION
We currently collect the domain names of visitors to our website, email addresses of members who offer it, aggregate — not individual — information on what pages members or customers access, and information volunteered by the member, such as survey information and requests.
If you supply us with your postal address you may receive periodic mailings from us with information on new products, services, or upcoming events. Persons who supply us with telephone numbers online may receive telephone calls from us with information regarding requests or questions they have made.
From time to time we make a portion of our mailing list available to carefully screened companies whose products or services we believe you might find interesting. We protect our member or customer mailing list very closely to ensure that it is used only in a manner that serves our members’ or customers’ interests. Additionally, we will never make your email address available to other companies.
If you prefer that we do not make your name and address available for these carefully screened offers, or if you don’t want to be contacted via email, please contact us directly by telephone, email, fax, or by postal mail at:
