Privacy Policy

Clooney Foundation for Justice (CFJ) has created this privacy policy to explain how we use information that you may provide while visiting our sites (in this policy, the term “sites” includes both our websites and our learning management system), and to demonstrate our firm commitment to privacy.

CFJ may modify this policy from time to time so we encourage you to check this page when revisiting CFJ sites.

How We Use Your Information

When you contribute, submit any online forms, email us, or take other actions on our sites, we may ask you to give us certain information, such as your name, address, telephone number and/or e-mail address. Not every use of one of our sites requires the same information from you.  As part of your use of the learning management system, CFJ may collect information about whether you have opened particular courses and whether you have successfully completed the course assessment.

We may obtain information about you from outside sources and add it to or combine it with the information we collect through our sites. We use this information for legitimate business interests including to operate our sites, send news and information to you about CFJ, to solicit your participation in CFJ programs, events, and activities, to fulfill your requests, and obtain and confirm RSVPs to events and programs. We use your e-mail address to send such information by e-mail and may use your telephone number to call you for these purposes.

We will never sell your e-mail address or any of your personal information to any other person or organization, for any purpose. If you decide to purchase tickets to an event or to make a contribution online, we may ask for your credit card information. That information is used solely for processing your contribution; is not maintained by our organization; and is never disclosed to anyone, for any other purpose other than for processing your transaction, under any circumstances.

We generally keep your information for as long as we need it to fulfill the purpose it was collected for. If you have questions about a retention period for a particular piece of your information, please contact us using the contact information below.

How We Protect Information You Provide

Clooney Foundation for Justice uses reasonable and appropriate security measures to protect the information under our control. Although we make good faith efforts to securely store and process information collected by our websites, we cannot guarantee complete security.

We may require you to create and use a password to access our learning management system.  Those passwords should be strong to help ensure the security of your account.

If we learn of a data security incident that affects your personal information, we may attempt to notify you via email, mail, telephone, or any other means permitted by law so that you can take appropriate protective steps.  We may also post a notice if a data security incident occurs.

Links to Other Websites

Our sites may link to third-party websites. We are not responsible for the content or privacy policies of third-party sites. We encourage you to read the privacy policies and review the practices of all websites you visit.

Other Disclosure of Your Information

Though we make every effort to preserve user privacy, we may need to disclose personal information when we have a good-faith belief that release is appropriate to comply with the law (for example, a lawful subpoena), to protect our rights or property, or to protect our donors, artists, and supporters from fraudulent, abusive, or unlawful conduct, or if we reasonably believe that an emergency involving immediate danger of death or serious physical injury to any person requires disclosure of communications or justifies disclosure of records without delay.

In the event that we combine with another entity, or another entity controls us, your information may be shared with that entity. We also share your information with service providers who help us perform general business functions, including the functions described in this privacy policy. Finally, we may ask for your consent to share your information in other ways.

Your Rights and Choices

Depending on applicable law, some individuals have rights related to the information we process about you. These rights include:

  • The right to request that we delete or “forget” information we hold about you,
  • The right to request access to or modification of information we hold about you, and
  • The right to object to or opt-out from certain kinds of data processing.

Please send any requests to exercise these rights to our contact information listed below. Note that we will not always be able to honor such a request. For example, information may be stored on back up media which is impossible or impracticable to erase, or we may need to keep certain information to comply with the law or as part of the legal process.


We want to help you guard your children’s privacy. We encourage you to talk to your children about safe and responsible use of their personal information while using the Internet. CFJ does not knowingly collect, use, or distribute children’s personally identifiable information. If you have any reservations, questions, or concerns about your child’s possible access to this site, please contact us.

About Cookies, IP Addresses and Log File Data Cookies

A cookie is a piece of data stored on the user’s device containing information about the user.

CFJ’s sites use cookies for measuring aggregate web statistics, including number of monthly visitors, number of repeat visitors, most popular webpages and other information, as well as to facilitate your online visit by maintaining data that you provide for online activities so that you will not need to resubmit certain information.  CFJ also uses cookies to facilitate your access of the training courses by maintaining data that you provide so that you will not need to resubmit certain information (for example, if you start a training session but leave and come back the next day to complete the training), including tracking whether you have opened a particular online course.

We also use third-party services such as Google Analytics. This helps us understand traffic patterns and know if there are problems with our sites. We also use embedded images in emails to track open rates for our mailings, so that we can tell which mailings appeal most to our supporters.


We may place online advertising with third-party vendors, including Google, which will be shown on other sites on the Internet. In some cases, those third-party vendors may decide which ads to show you based on your prior visits to our sites. At no time will you be personally identified to those third-party vendors, nor will any of the information you share with us be shared with those third-party vendors. If you prefer to opt out of the use of these third-party cookies on the site, you can do so by visiting the Network Advertising Initiative opt out page.

Server Log Files

We log standard technical information, such as your IP address and the kind of browser you use. We log this information for troubleshooting purposes, to track which pages people visit in order to improve the site, and to track which pages of the online training people visit and how long they remain in order to improve the training courses.
