Privacy Policy

Last updated: May 04, 2023 

This Privacy Policy outlines information collected by the Partnership for Civil Justice Fund (PCJF) from visitors to its website, how that information is used, and what privacy choices are available. By using the PCJF’s website, visitors agree to acceptance of this Website Privacy Policy. 

Information Collected 

PCJF’s website is viewed anonymously. The organization and its website administrators do not collect any personal information that identifies visitors unless they voluntarily provide contact information. Personal information includes information that is unique to an individual, such as a name, address, email address or telephone number. 

By submitting personal information, website visitors grant PCJF the right to transmit, monitor, retrieve, store, and use that information in connection with the operation of the website. Personal information is always stored in a secure database. 

Website visitors may be asked to provide personal information in completing any online forms used for action campaigns, event registration, special events and promotions, making a donation, and/or providing feedback. The information required to complete the transaction is noted on each specific form.  

How We Use This Information 

PCJF uses the information you provide to fulfill online requests, participate in action campaigns, to process credit card information, to respond to customer service inquiries, and/or in other ways as required by law. 

Requested information on voluntary forms is used to provide the services that you request, such as participation in action campaigns, event registration, special events and promotions, to make donations, and to provide feedback. 

Only authorized staff members (including those who need the information to perform a specific task) at PCJF have access to your information voluntarily provided via the website. 

Data Security 

PCJF makes every effort to ensure that your personal information voluntarily provided by website visitors remains as secure as possible. Accordingly, unauthorized access is prevented by a secure firewall and use of security technologies to protect the integrity and privacy of any personal information you provide. 

Although the organization endeavors to protect your personal information, PCJF cannot ensure the security of any information transmitted to the organization through online applications, which is provided at the website user’s own risk. Depending on the nature of the inquiry, your communication could be discarded or archived. Website users who prefer not to send particular information via online applications may instead contact PCJF by telephone at the numbers provided throughout our site. 

Newsletter Subscriptions 

If subscribing to a newsletter published by PCJF and distributed by email, the website visitor’s email address will be recorded in a private distribution list. 

PCJF will only send messages to those who have opted to subscribe. 

Email Information 

Occasionally, PCJF staff members will request personal information from you in order to deliver requested materials, respond to questions, or provide information. PCJF retains personal information on file but does not share, sell, license, or transmit this information with or to third parties or external vendors unless required to do so by legal, judicial, or governmental proceedings.  


The PCJF website uses “cookies” to determine the number of times a page on the website has been accessed. Cookies are small computer files that a website can transfer to your computer. Examples of information collected include how often someone visits the site and their activities while on the site. This information is used to aggregate to understand how our visitors as a group use different resources. These reports do not contain any personally identifiable information. 

Most Internet browsers automatically accept cookies, but website users’ browsers can be set to refuse them or to alert the user when they are being sent. Information on the PCJF website can be accessed without enabling cookies in a browser. 


Some sections of the PCJF website require login identifiers and/or passwords. Website users are responsible for taking reasonable steps to ensure that no unauthorized person has access to their password or account login information. It is their sole responsibility to control the use of login information and passwords, to authorize, monitor and control access to and use of their website account and password, and to inform the website administrator promptly of any need to deactivate a password. 

Third-Party Vendors/Content Providers 

PCJF occasionally will engage reputable third-party vendors to help manage the website, provide content and information, and enable better interaction with website visitors. PCJF never shares any personally identifiable information provided by website users when requesting information with third parties, except as required by law. 

Links to Other Websites 

Our website may contain links to other websites that are not operated by us. If you click on a third-party link, you will be directed to that third party’s site. We advise you to review the Privacy Policy of every site you visit. 

We have no control over and assume no responsibility for the content, privacy policies, or practices of any third-party sites or services. 

Changes to this Privacy Policy 

PCJF reserves the right to change or update this Website Privacy Policy from time to time without notice, so encourages website users to review it periodically to keep informed of any changes.
