We pledge to always treat your personal information with care and respect.

This Agreement is made between the CJCC and you, the Rresource Locator (RL) website visitor. CJCC reserve the right at any time to change its Policy under which the RL is offered.

Effective as of April 5, 2013


CJCC makes every effort to update this site on a regular basis. This website and the information it contains are provided as a public service by the CJCC. The information we gather to input into our RL database comes from the service providers directly and/or the District of Columbia’s Public Defenders Service Directory of Adult Services. There may be a delay between the submission of information and its appearance on the RL. In addition, from time to time, circumstance may arise that requires the removal of all or part of an organization's entry. The CJCC reserves the right to accept or to decline information about any organization for any reason and at any time. A decision to accept or to decline information about an organization does not necessarily indicate endorsement or non-endorsement of that organization.

Third Party Links to Other Sites
The RL contains links to sites we believe might be useful to you and which may provide services. When you link to another site, you are no longer on the RL page and are subject to the privacy policy, if any, of the third party site. CJCC provides web links to various agencies to you only as convenience, and the inclusion of any link does not imply endorsement by CJCC of the site or any association with its operators. We encourage you to be aware when you leave our site and to read the privacy policies of other sites that may collect your personal information. Nothing in these Policies shall be construed to create any rights or obligations in or otherwise on behalf of any third parties. We encourage you to use your discretion when dealing with any sources available on the Internet. CJCC cannot and does not guarantee or warrant that information potentially available for downloading through third party websites, accessed on our sites through links, will be free of infection or viruses, worms, Trojan horses or other code that manifests contaminating or destructive properties.

Privacy Policy

Scope of Policy
This Privacy Policy applies only to information you provide to us online or that we collect from you while visiting or using our Contact Us page. This policy does not apply to the practices of organizations or other third party websites that you may access from the RL website.

Types of Information We Collect
We collect two basic types of information - personal information and anonymous information - and we may use personal and anonymous information to create a third type of information, aggregate information. We collect the following categories of information:

  1. Voluntary information you provide when you send electronic correspondence to use regarding the information contained in the RL including your email address and/or phone number.
  2. Transaction information you provide when you request information about a particular service or agency listed in the RL.

CJCC receives and stores information that you voluntarily provide when inputting information into the Contact Us page of the RL. For example, when you visit our Contact Us page, we ask that you voluntarily provide personal information including your name, email address, and phone number. This is the only personal information collected.

What We Do With Information We Collect
In general, we use the information we collect from and about you to provide information and perform services that you request to improve our RL website. Any personally identifiable information we collect is never shared with third parties. All other information provided is used only to (1) update or correct information in our RL database and (2) to fulfill or respond to your requests submitted to CJCC through our “Contact Us” page. This information will merely be used as a way to contact you to show gratitude for your feedback or to ask clarifying questions as it relates to your questions, comments, and/or issues submitted through our Contact Us page.
