About the Information We Collect
J* is a site to experiment with J*'s AI. You create a profile which may then be linked to your friends to create your network. To do this we display certain information to people within the network such as your first name, age and any optional information you provide about yourself. Your email address is not shared with anyone unless you are asking them to connect to you as a friend. Your date of birth is not shared with anyone except your immediate friends, though your age is always shared.
Information Collected by J*
J* asks for certain information such as your name, email address, gender and date of birth.
Information Obtained from Your Computer
J* also collects the type and version number of your browser as well as your computer's IP address. We use this for general administration of the website - including for tracking down fake accounts.
Sharing of Your Information
We do not sell, rent, share, trade or give away any of your personal information unless required by law. At J*'s discretion, information may also be released on any fake or libelous account to anyone wishing to pursue legal action.
Anonymized data may be shared for purposes of conducting scholarly studies, but no personal information (names, email addresses, etc.) will be released.
How We Use Your Information
We use your information principally to enhance your experience using the web site. Links available on the home page and elsewhere may be shown because they have relevance to you.

It is also used is aggregated form (i.e. as statistics like 12% of members are under the age of 20) and in that form may be widely distributed.
Cookies are used to maintain your session with J*. So if you do not have cookies enabled, at least for J*, you will not be able to use the site.

Email from J*
From time to time we may send email with information about changes and improvements to the site, other information that relates to your membership or general news. You can control whether this information is sent to you using the features in the "Account Settings" section of the site.
We never send attachments with any email. If you get an attachment on an email purporting to originate from J*, do not open it since it is likely to be a virus!
