Privacy Policy

We understand the importance of your privacy and of the privacy of the families who are a part of the Jewish Baby Network (“JBN”) communities.  We are providing this Privacy Policy to inform you of our policies and procedures regarding the collection, use, and disclosure of the personally identifiable information received from JBN members and other visitors to (the “Site”) and to the Jewish Baby Network Group (“JBN Group”). For information on the privacy policies of our other third party service providers, please refer to their individual websites.

Information We Collect

In the course of using the Site, we may ask that you provide us with some personally identifiable information – information about you that can be used to contact or identify you, and information on your use / or potential use of the Site (“Personal Information”).  It is possible for you to access parts of the Site without providing any of your Personal Information.  However, in order to take full advantage of the Site and all the resources JBN has to offer, you are required to connect with a region or join the online forum.

If you wish to connect with JBN, you will be required to submit your name and email address to JBN along with other required and optional information.

Information Use and Disclosure

We use this information to connect you to other JBN families if you wish. We also anonymously share some of the demographic information with donors and potential donors. We never share or sell your information to any outside organization, Jewish or otherwise.

We use your Personal Information to offer you certain services through this Site and the JBN Group, including, the provision of information about upcoming events, parenting information, volunteer opportunities and more. Through the online discussion feature you can share information about  items for sale, domestic help, parenting advice, and community resources with other members. We also use this information to maintain our membership roster and to ensure that JBN families can benefit from use of the Site and JBN Group. We may also use your address to send you additional information.

JBN Group Communication

Other JBN Members may have access to any Personal Information you include in your profile, including your name, postal address, email address, hobbies and names of family members.

Site Usage Data

When you visit the Site, we may automatically collect data about your visit, including your IP address, and non-personal data such as your browser type, the pages you visit, and the search terms you use.  This information provides us with data about user activity and helps us improve the usability and reliability of the Site. This information may be automatically correlated with your username if you are logged in to the Site. However, we only use this non-personal data in connection with your personal information if necessary to provide services to you.


The Site may rely on “cookie” technology (including flash cookies) to collect additional usage data and to support any login mechanisms on the Site.  A cookie is a small data file that we transfer to your computer’s hard drive. We do not use cookies to collect Personal Information, and, to our knowledge, WordPress does not do so either.  However, we and/or WordPress may do so in the future. Most Internet browsers automatically accept cookies. You can configure your browser to stop accepting cookies or to prompt you before accepting cookies from the websites you visit.

Compliance with Laws and Law Enforcement

We may choose to disclose some or all of your information, including your Personal Information, any correspondences and non-personal data, to the government, law enforcement officials, or private parties if we, in our sole discretion, believe it necessary or appropriate to comply with the law, to respond to legal complaints, to comply with legal process (including subpoenas), to protect the rights of JBN or a third party, to enforce our terms and conditions, to ensure the safety of the public or any person, or to prevent or stop any illegal, unethical, or legally questionable activity.


We believe the safety and security of your Personal Information is important.  We employ procedural and technological measures in an attempt to protect your information from unauthorized access and use.  Although we do attempt to keep your Personal Information secure, no security measures are perfect; there is always a possibility that a security breach could occur, resulting in the release of Personal Information. Third parties may unlawfully intercept or access transmissions or private communications, or may abuse or misuse your Personal Information available on the Site.

Certain of our third party providers may also have access to your Personal Information and may have their own procedural and technological measures in place to protect your Personal Information.  These providers may also backup your Personal Information. While JBN makes every effort to select responsible third party providers, we are not responsible for, and have no control over, the security measures of our third party providers, or where or how long they may store your Personal Information.  We encourage you to learn about the privacy policies of our third party providers.

Links to Other Sites

The Site may contain links to other websites.  You should pay particular attention to which website you are visiting when submitting any Personal Information.  This Privacy Policy addresses the use and disclosure of only that information that we collect from you through the Site and the JBN Group.  Different rules may apply to information you submit to other websites. We are not responsible for, and have no control over, the sharing practices or policies of the third parties that operate those sites.  We encourage you to learn about the privacy practices of third parties with which you interact.

Our Policy Toward Children

The Site is not intended for or directed toward, and we do not knowingly collect Personal Information from, children under 13 years of age.  If we become aware that a child under 13 has provided us with Personal Information, we will attempt to remove such information from our files. If you become aware that your child has provided us with Personal Information without your consent, please contact us at

We recommend that minors over the age of 13 ask their parents for permission before sending any information about themselves to anyone over the Internet.
