This information is used by CIJA for the operation of the service, to maintain quality of the service, and to provide general statistics regarding use of www.judicial.ky. CIJA encourages you to review the privacy statements of Web sites you choose to link to from www.judicial.ky so that you can understand how those Web sites collect, use and share your information.

CIJA reserves the right to also use your personally identifiable information to inform you of other products or services available from CIJA. CIJA also reserves the right to contact you via surveys to conduct research about your opinion of current services or of potential new services that may be offered.

CIJA does not sell, rent or lease its customer lists to third parties.

CIJA keeps track of the Web sites and pages our customers visit within www.judicial.ky, in order to determine what CIJA services are the most popular. This data may be used in the future to deliver customized content and advertising within www.judicial.ky to customers whose behavior indicates that they are interested in a particular subject area. CIJA websites will disclose your personal information, without notice, only if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to: (a) conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on CIJA or the site; (b) protect and defend the rights or property of CIJA; and, (c) act under exigent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of www.judicial.ky, or the public.

Security of your Personal Information

CIJA secures your credentials from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. CIJA secures the credentials you provide on computer servers in a controlled, secure environment, protected from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. When personal information (such as a credit card number) is transmitted to other Web sites, it is protected through the use of encryption, such as the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol.

Use of Cookies

The CIJA website uses “cookies” to help you personalize your online experience. A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by a Web page server. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you, and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you. One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. The purpose of a cookie is to tell the Web server that you have returned to a specific page. For example, if you personalize www.judicial.ky pages, or register with www.judicial.ky, a cookie helps www.judicial.ky to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of recording your personal information, and preferences. When you return to the same CIJA website, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the www.judicial.ky features that you customized. You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most Web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of the www.judicial.ky services or other websites you visit.

Changes to this Statement

CIJA will occasionally update this Statement of Privacy to reflect department and customer feedback. CIJA encourages you to periodically review this Statement to be informed of how CIJA is protecting your information.
