Section A. Information Collected and How it is Used

Information Collected and Stored Automatically

If you do nothing during your visit but browse through the website, read pages, or download information, we will gather and store certain information about your visit automatically. This information does not identify you personally.  We automatically collect and store only the following information about your visit:

The Internet domain (for example, "") and IP address (an IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer whenever you are surfing the Web) from which you access our web site.

  1. The type of browser and operating system used to access our site.
  2. The date and time you access our site.
  3. The pages you visit.
  4. If you linked to the NJLM website from another website, the address of that website.

We use this information to help us make our site more useful to visitors-to learn about the number of visitors to our site and the types of technology our visitors use. We do not track or record information about individuals and their visits.

If You Send Us Personal Information

If you choose to provide us with personal information-as in an email to us, or by filling out a form with your personal information and submitting it to us through our website-we use that information to respond to your message and to help us get you the information you have requested. We only share the information you give us with another government agency if your inquiry relates to that agency, if subject to a valid NJ OPRA request, or as otherwise required by law. Moreover, we do not create individual profiles with the information you provide or give it to any private organizations. NJLM does not collect information for commercial marketing from this website.

Section B. Personal Information and Choice

You may choose whether to provide personal information online."Personal information" is information about a natural person that is readily identifiable to that specific individual. Personal information includes such things as an individual's name, address, email address, and phone number. A domain name or Internet protocol address is not considered personal information.

We collect no personal information about you unless you voluntarily provide it to us by sending us email, participating in a survey, or completing an online form. You may choose not to contact us by email, participate in a survey, or provide any personal information using an online form. Your choice to not participate in these activities will not impair your ability to browse the NJLM website and read or download any information provided on the site.

Privacy Warning

Email is not a secure medium. Personal information sent via the Internet can be intercepted. You may, therefore, wish to reconsider the advisability of sending messages that contain sensitive, personal information to this Internet address.

The NJLM does not plan on divulging information collected or information disclosed voluntarily, but may be required to do so pursuant to a request under State or Federal law or pursuant to court order, or a valid NJ OPRA request.

If you believe that your personal information is being used for a purpose other than what was intended when submitted, you may contact the NJLM Network Administrator as shown in the Contact Information Section of this statement.

Section C. Cookies

To help make our website more responsive to the needs of our visitors, we use a standard feature of browser software, called a “cookie,” to assign each visitor a unique, random number that resides on your computer. The cookie does not identify the visitor, just the computer that a visitor uses to access our site. Unless you voluntarily identify yourself, we won't know who you are, even if we assign a cookie to your computer as the only personal information a cookie can contain is information you supply. A cookie cannot read unrelated data off your computer. We use cookies to help us deliver a better, more personalized service. For example, we use cookies to track the pages and services on our website visited by our users. We can build a better website if we know which pages and features our users are visiting and how often.

Section D. Security
