What Information Do We Collect?
When you visit the TJ site you may provide us with two types of information: personal information you knowingly choose to disclose that is collected on an individual basis and web site use information collected on an aggregate basis as you and others browse our web site.
You will provide us information about yourself when you register to be a member of TJ, register for certain services, register for email newsletters and alerts, or give a gift to a TJ Member. You may also provide additional information on how TJ services your needs and interests.
If you choose to correspond with us through email or use the TJ email registry notices option, we may retain the content of those email messages and the email address.
Web Site Use Information
Similar to other commercial web sites, our web site utilizes a standard technology called "cookies" (see explanation below, "What Are Cookies?") and web server logs to collect information about how our web site is used. Information gathered through cookies and web server logs may include the date and time of visits, the pages viewed, time spent at our web site, and the web sites visited just before and just after our web site. TJ, our advertisers and ad serving companies may also use small pieces of code called "web beacons" or "clear gifs" to determine which advertisements and promotions users have seen and how users responded to them.
How Do We Use the Information That You Provide to Us?
Broadly speaking, we use personal information for purposes of administering and expanding our business activities, providing customer service, and making available other products and services to our customers and prospective customers. Occasionally, we may also use the information we collect to notify you about important changes to TJ and new services and special offers we think you will find valuable. You may notify us at any time if you do not wish to receive these offers by contacting us.
What Are Cookies?
A cookie is a very small text document, which often includes an anonymous unique identifier. When you visit a web site, that site's computer asks your computer for permission to store this file in a part of your hard drive specifically designated for cookies. Each web site can send its own cookie to your browser if your browser's preferences allow it, but (to protect your privacy) your browser only permits a web site to access the cookies it has already sent to you, not the cookies sent to you by other sites.
How Do We Use Information We Collect from Cookies?

Other than what is viewable on public Member registry pages, we will never disclose any Member or gift-giver information to any external party. You can choose not to receive these messages on the "Edit Account Information" page within your member account.
