2.2 Data Automatically Collected on our Website
We use technologies that automatically collect and store some personal and non-personal data when you use our website, including sending one or more cookies, web beacons, or other anonymous identifiers to your device. Cookies are small files with code and text that are saved on your device after visiting websites that employ the technology.

2.3 Data Automatically Collected on our iOS Application
Our iOS application does not collect personal information that is used to identify you. When you use our iOS application, our server may record some non-personal information to understand the reading habits of our users, including the time of visit, and the type and titles of articles viewed. This information, however, is collected on an aggregated level only. We do not link the data gathered to your personal device or your personal identity.
3. How Do We Use Your Information?
Cookies, web beacons, and other technologies help us to recognize you on return visits to the JURIST website and application, to enhance your browsing experience, and to collect additional information to help us conduct traffic analyses and better understand our website and application users.
We use data in ways including but not limited to:
- Improving the usability and design of the website or application
- Evaluating and improving the content of the website or application
- Diagnosing problems with the website or application
- Assessing the interests and demands of website and application users.
We do not automatically collect personally identifiable information and will not collect such information without your consent, with the exception of IP addresses. We will not merge your personally identifiable information with non-personal data without your consent.
4. What Choices Do You Have?
Acceptance of anonymous identifiers is not required to use the website. You may adjust your browser settings or use other means to prevent the collection of data through cookies. Doing so may result in some reduced functionality and a less personalized browsing experience.
You may opt out of Google Analytics tracking and prevent Google Analytics from recognizing you on return visits by disabling cookies. Using Google Ads Settings, you can also opt out of Google Analytics for Display Advertising or customize Google Display Network ads. For more information about opting out of Google Analytics tracking, you can visit Google Analytics’s currently available opt-outs.

- Disclosure is required by law or to protect the rights, property, or personal safety of ourselves, or members of the general public
6. How Long Do We Keep Your Information?
We may keep any collected information for an unlimited time, or for the amount of time permitted by law.
7. How Do We Protect Your Information?
We are committed to protecting your privacy. We take administrative and technical measures to prevent the unauthorized or unlawful use of your data and to prevent accidental loss or damage to such information. However, the security of any data transmission over the Internet or a wireless network cannot be guaranteed. Therefore, while we strive to protect your information, by visiting our website, using our iOS application, or sending us an email, you acknowledge that (i) there are security and privacy concerns inherent to using the Internet that they are beyond JURIST’s control; (ii) the security, integrity, and privacy of any and all information and data exchanged between you and our website or iOS application cannot be guaranteed; and (iii) any such information and data may be viewed or tampered with in transit by a third-party, despite best efforts.
