Privacy Policy

This Privacy Policy applies to the web domain,, and all of its related web pages (collectively, the "Site"). By accessing, viewing or using the Site, you are agreeing to the terms set forth in this Privacy Policy. For other terms and conditions that apply to your use of the Site, please review our Terms and Conditions.

Personal Information Collected

For purposes of this Privacy Policy, "personal information" means any individually identifiable information about an individual, including a name, address, telephone number, email address, account number and similar information. The Site may request personal information in order to help the State of New Jersey serve you more effectively. The State of New Jersey generally collects personal information only when you voluntarily submit such personal information to us, for example, by submitting a comment or inquiry or completing a registration form.

Use and Retention of Personal Information

It is the State of New Jersey's policy to maintain all personal information as confidential, regardless of the purpose for which it is submitted, and to use such personal information only for the following purposes:

  • For the specific purpose for which it was volunteered (for example, to submit a comment, receive account information, receive event information, etc.);
  • To track our visitors' use of the Site for internal market research; and
  • To notify our visitors of updates to the Site or promotional product opportunities.

Notwithstanding the foregoing, all information collected shall be subject to disclosure under the State of New Jersey's Open Public Record's Act and such disclosure as may otherwise be required by law.

From time to time we may use the information we collect to notify you about other services we think you will find valuable and interesting such as updates to the Site. However, if you do not want to receive this information, you can let us know by opting out.

It is the State of New Jersey's policy to keep personal information in accordance with State record retention policy. The State of New Jersey does not sell, rent or otherwise distribute to third parties personal information about visitors to the Site, except as needed for the State of New Jersey to provide the services for which such information was volunteered. However, the Site contains links to sites controlled by, and pages maintained by, independent third parties. The State of New Jersey does not control the use of information provided to such third parties. If you access other sites using the links provided, the operators of these sites may collect information from you which will then be used by them in accordance with their privacy policy, which may differ from ours.

Authorized third parties may need access to some of your personal information or that of your child under age 13 to provide the services for which you/your child provided such information. For example, if you request mailed information, we would use third-party shippers to deliver the order to you and we would need to provide the shipper with your name and address. It is the State of New Jersey's policy to provide to third parties only that amount of personal information that they require to complete the requested service or transaction.

Given the global nature of the Internet, using the Internet to collect and process personal information could involve the transmission of data on an international basis. By accessing, viewing, or using the Site and communicating electronically with us, you agree that we may export personal information to one or more of our offices and process it there in accordance with this policy. Although data may be held in countries that do not have strict data privacy laws, we do take steps to maintain the privacy and security of your personal information.

Protection of Children's Privacy

We at the State of New Jersey are especially concerned about protecting children's privacy. We hope parents and teachers are involved in children's Internet explorations. It is particularly important for parents to guide their children when children are asked to provide personal information on line. We specifically ask children to get their parents' permission before providing any information on line -at our site or any other site -and hope parents will always be involved in those decisions. Most importantly, when children do provide information through the State of New Jersey website, it is only used to enable us to respond to the writer, and not to create profiles of children.

Access Rights

You have a right to review personal information about you or your child under age 13 that is held by the State of New Jersey. To obtain a copy of your personal information or that of your child under age 13, or to request deletion of personal information about you or such child in the State of New Jersey's possession, please submit your request to
