WHAT WE GATHER FROM YOU

Our site collects information in several ways—when you subscribe to our mailing list or sign up for the CoJourn program, we ask only basic personal data (name and email). For CoJourn Cohort program participants and organizational programs, we also ask for sensitive personal data, which includes demographic information such as race, gender, age, etc. for participants who request to be paired with a partner. The CoJourn website also uses Cookies to help identify you and access your account data, to track website use, to track traffic patterns and for system administration. A cookie is a small text file that is created by your browser from a web page and is stored on your computer's hard drive.

USE OF YOUR SENSITIVE PERSONAL DATA

The use of Sensitive Personal Data (i.e. demographic information such as race, gender, age, etc.) is our highest concern. As such, Your Sensitive Personal Data will be used only for the following purpose:

We do not share Your Sensitive Personal Data outside of CoJourn staff, for the purposes defined in this Privacy Policy.

The Company will retain Your Sensitive Personal Data (demographic information) only for the length of the program. For example, if you join a 12 week program, the data will be stored until the conclusion of the program, and will be deleted following the end date.
