Privacy Statement

Information Disclaimer:

JCDJFS provides this web site as a public service to our customers. It is designed to give Jefferson County residents information about programs and services available through our Agency. The privacy of visitors to this web site is one of our top priorities and every effort is made to ensure compliance with state and federal laws. While JCDJFS makes every effort to keep the information on this site accurate, current, and reliable, there are no guarantees about the accuracy, currency, completeness, or adequacy of this web site or links to other web sites. As a result, JCDJFS expressly disclaims liability for errors and/or omissions of any kind on this web site.

Personal Information:

As a general rule, JCDJFS does not collect any personal identifying information about users of the site. Unauthorized attempts to upload information or change information on this web site are strictly prohibited and may be punishable under the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act of 1986, the National Information Infrastructure Protection Act, and any other applicable Federal or State of Ohio laws.

Cookie Use:

Some pages on this web site employ "cookies" to provide better service to our web site users. Cookies are small pieces of temporary data that are exchanged between a web site and a user's computer, which enables a session or dialog to be established between the web site and the user.

E-mail Privacy Warning:

JCDJFS suggests that users do not send any information that may be considered confidential by e-mail. E-mail is not necessarily a secure communication process and a third party may intercept messages. If a communication relates to services received or requested, is highly sensitive, or includes personal information such as a Social Security Number, it is recommended that the user call the party by telephone or send a letter by regular mail.

Links to Other Web Sites:

This web site contains links to other web sites such as community partners, service organizations, and other government web sites over which JCDJFS has no control. Once a user links to any of these sites, JCDJFS Privacy Policy is no longer in effect and the user is subject to the privacy policy of that new web site. Inclusion of these links to other web sites is solely for the convenience of the web site visitors and does not constitute an endorsement or recommendation of web content, viewpoint, policies, products, or services.

Policy Changes:

JCDJFS will post any changes to this policy at least thirty (30) days before those changes take effect. Any information collected under the current privacy policy will remain subject to the terms of this policy. Once any changes take effect, all information collected from that date forward would be subject to that new policy.
