At www.jvn.org.uk – The Jewish Volunteering Network (JVN) – we take our obligations under the Data Protection Act (1998) very seriously.
We offer user registration to make it as easy as possible for you to apply online for volunteering opportunities. We will use this information to connect you to such opportunities. You will have specified how you wish us to contact you (by e-mail or telephone) and we will inform you of volunteering opportunities that match your preferences. You may change these preferences at any time by logging on to www.jvn.org.uk. If you have indicated that you are available for ad hoc opportunities, we may inform you and the organisation that has an ad hoc need if any such request matches your preferences.
At all times you will be able to inform any organisation of your interest in their opportunity by requesting that an email be sent to them. They will then be able to contact you. You are also able to contact them with the information available to you regarding any specific volunteering opportunity.
Your registration information will never be passed on to any third party outside our network without your permission. Your information will securely stored on the JVN database to enable you to make further applications in the future.

Cookies don’t search your computer or other browsing device for information. Cookies register the information you provide through your browser. When you enter personal information on a website, the cookies store your information, both for ease of use on your next visit, and for ad tracking. Information stored by cookies is usually encoded; it is protected from potential computer hackers by security features which JVN has put into place.
Cookies are necessary and enhance your browsing experience. Without cookies, you would have to re-enter all of your information every time you revisited a site. A cookie will simply remember your information on the website to save you time.
Cookies only store the information you provide. A cookie cannot “grab” your email address. A cookie can store your email address on the website—if you have typed in your email address; a cookie stores all information you voluntarily give when you visit a website.
Cookies themselves contain very little information other than the URL of the website that created the cookie. Because there is so little information, a cookie can’t be used to identify you by name or other personal information. However, advances in technology have seen an increase in how companies can manipulate cookie information to create a profile of your web surfing habits. Again, this is a profile of a particular consumer’s surfing habits and product preferences, but there is no name (your name) attached to the profile.
Cookies are harmless. They cannot introduce viruses on your computer or any other browsing device.
Cookies are not the same thing as Spyware. A cookie stores your website surfing information; Spyware stores your Internet surfing information (every site you visit).
Cookies do not identify your personal details but your IP address (used to identify your computer or other browsing device) is registered whenever you browse. JVN has no control over this.
You can block cookies using the ‘Settings’ function of your browser toolbar, or the settings on your phone or tablet.
