NJPO collects personal information about its users during registration and while users visit the site. Using “cookie” technology, we are able to recognize you as a user whenever you visit, as well as automatically detect your membership when you participate in NJPO, LLC. interactive features.

The data we collect is used in the aggregate to give us demographic information about the entire NJPO audience in order to improve your experience on and while watching NJPO.

Privacy and kids

Your child’s privacy matters to us. NJPO is a general audience website that complies with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA). Under COPPA, no website operator is permitted to require a child under the age of 13 to disclose more information than is reasonably necessary to participate in an activity. NJPO abides by this requirement.

When a child under 13 registers, he/she is required to provide the email address of his/her parent or guardian. The child’s parent or guardian will be notified via email when the child registers with NJPO. Parents have the ability to review and cancel their child’s membership at any time (including receipt of any email newsletters and alerts as noted below); instructions are provided in the email.

Registrants under 13 years of age may subscribe to NJPO email newsletters and alerts. They are not allowed to participate in contests and promotions, nor do we allow them to be listed in our member directory, receive direct marketing communications from NJPO, or be sent our third-party offers.

Registrants under 13 years of age may participate in NJPO’s online chats, message boards, and Netcam Network. The Netcam Network allows registered members to appear on our television programming via recorded video. A parent or guardian’s permission is required for any video in which a child under 18 appears, regardless of the age of the registered member who recorded the video.

NJPO does not collect any personally identifying information, such as full name and address, regardless of its source, from registered members under 13, nor does it disclose the information it does collect to any third party for any purpose whatsoever.
