Digital Privacy Policy

The Jewish Community Center of Greater Pittsburgh (“JCC”) respects the privacy of every visitor to our website. Your privacy is a priority, and we go to great lengths to protect it. This Internet Site Privacy Policy explains our online information practices. This Policy may be changed or updated from time to time. By visiting the JCC at, you accept the practices described in this Policy.

    When you register online for a class or special event, depending upon the activity, we may also collect payment information (such as standard credit card data.)

How We Use Cookies

We use “cookies” and other technologies to enhance your online experience. A “cookie” can be either permanent (i.e., it remains on your computer until you delete it) or temporary (i.e., it lasts only until you close your browser). A “cookie” is a small text file that helps us recognize repeat visitors, facilitate the visitor’s ongoing access to and use of the site, and track usage behavior and compile aggregate data that can lead to website improvements. Cookies may also help us customize certain content on the website. Cookies and other similar technologies collect non-personal information about the user of a particular Internet Protocol (IP) address. If you do not want information collected through the use of cookies, you can deny or accept the cookie feature using a simple procedure available in most browsers. If you block cookies, however, you may lose some website functionality. You can learn more about cookies by visiting


Email Privacy?

The JCC does not sell or rent email addresses to anyone outside the organization. Users may elect to “opt-out” of any email newsletters that they receive to their inbox on behalf of the JCC.  Members may not “opt-out” of any transactional emails regarding their membership accounts.


Social Media Privacy?

The JCC  may use website cookie data or email addresses given to the JCC voluntarily to deliver content through social media platforms that targets a user’s interest more precisely.


Is Personal Information, Including Credit Card, Secure?

We use a variety of safeguards to protect the security of your credit card transactions online. We use technologies and processes such as encryption, access controls, network firewalls, physical security and other measures. These measures make it extremely difficult for anyone to intercept the credit card information you submit. When we work with other companies to process credit card transactions, those companies also use encryption and other security measures.


How We Use Your Information

The JCC will not sell, trade, or share personal information about our members, financial donors or website users with anyone else, nor will we send mailings to our financial donors on behalf of other organizations, unless a member or donor has given us specific permission to do so.

If you provide the JCC with personal information when you visit our website, we may use the information in our programs and activities. We may enter your name into one of our databases so we can contact you to obtain your input, provide information about our programs and events, or request contributions.

On occasion, the JCC may share information about you with vendors and service providers that assist us with our activities and programs. These vendors and service providers help us with functions such as fulfilling orders, managing data and processing donations. In addition, we make disclosures as required by law.

We may amend this privacy policy from time to time; please review it periodically. We maintain the option to modify this Policy at any time by electronic notice posted on our website.
