What Personally Identifiable Information is Collected
“Personally identifiable information” is information that identifies a particular individual. DC Justice Lab collects the following personally identifiable information from visitors to its website:
We will retain your personally identifiable information only for as long as necessary to fulfill the purpose for which it is collected and in accordance with legal obligations.
How Your Information May Be Used
We use your personally identifiable information to provide you with personalized service; to send e-mail alerts to you; to answer your requests; to process your membership application; or as otherwise needed to provide the services that you have requested. You may choose to opt out at any time, which will cease all marketing communications from us. We may also use your information to track visitors of our website. This lets us see which of our features are the most popular so we can better serve our users’ needs. It also lets us provide aggregate data about our traffic (not identifying you personally, but showing how many visitors used which features, for example) to outside parties.
Please also be aware that we may disclose personally identifiable information about you if required to do so by law, government request, process or court order or based on our good faith belief that it is necessary to conform or comply with such law, request or court order or to protect the users of our website or the public.
We do not sell or rent e-mail addresses to anyone outside the organization.
How We Respond to Do Not Track Signals
The “Do Not Track” (“DNT”) privacy preference is an option that may be made in some web browsers allowing you to opt-out of tracking by websites and online services. At this time, global standard DNT technology is not yet finalized and not all browsers support DNT. We therefore do not recognize DNT signals and do not respond to them.
This website is not intended for or directed to anyone under the age of 13. If you are under the age of 13, you should use this website only with the involvement or a parent or guardian and should not submit any personally identifiable information to us.

Please note that no data transmissions over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. You play a role in protecting your information as well. Consequently, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us and you understand that any information that you transfer to us is done at your own risk. If we learn of a security systems breach we may attempt to notify you electronically so that you can take appropriate protective steps. By using the website or providing personally identifiable information to us, you agree that we can communicate with you electronically regarding security, privacy and administrative issues relating to your use of the website. We may post a notice via our website if a security breach occurs. We may also send an e-mail to you at the e-mail address you have provided to us in these circumstances.
