Information Received and Retained by Journaliciously.com Online Platforms
Information You Give Us

You do not have to provide the Journaliciously.com with any personal information or create a user account to access public information on Journaliciously.com, which is minimal. However, for our journalling service, we will need minimal personal information from you: your name and email address. And, of course, we will store your daily entries for you (encrypted) as our main service.


When you visit Journaliciously.com, the following basic information is automatically received and stored by the web servers hosting Journaliciously.com:
  • The originating Internet Protocol (IP) address;
  • The internet domain name;
  • Information about your computer or mobile set-up (e.g., type and version of web browser, operating system, screen resolution, and connection speed);
  • The pages on Journaliciously.com that you visit;
  • The internet address, or URL, of the website that connected you to our site, if you accessed Journaliciously.com via a link on another page (i.e., “referral traffic”); and
  • The amount of data transmitted from Journaliciously.com to your computer.

Journaliciously.com also uses web measurement and customization technologies (such as “cookies”). You can choose not to accept cookies from any website, including Journaliciously.com, by changing your browser settings.
The public emotions poll collects your entry, along with the automatic server info above. The server information above will connect any poll entries entered before logging in to your account if you log in during the same browser session


Email Subscriptions
In order to manage Journaliciously.com email subscription lists, we retain the names and email addresses of our email subscribers, as well as other information they may have shared with us (e.g., daily entries, answers to poll questions), logs of emails we send, and automatically generated email data used to improve our email communications. This automatically generated email data (generated through simple tools such as “pixel tags” and link redirects) includes:
  • The recipient’s email client;
  • Whether the email was opened;
  • If a link in the message was clicked;
  • Whether an email was delivered;
  • If the email was forwarded; and
  • If the email was printed.

If, at any time, you wish to stop receiving our messages, simply click on the “Unsubscribe” link at the bottom of each email message.


Third-Party Websites
For aggregate statistical analysis and to improve the quality of our services, we may integrate web measurement tools with our social media pages. These tools enable basic analysis of social media traffic (such as the number of people visiting a certain page) and do not collect personally identifiable information.

How Information is Used
If you choose to provide us with information, we may use that information to contact you, respond to your message, or provide you the information or services you requested. In order to serve you better, we may analyze multiple sources of data you have provided (for example, to look up whether you previously contacted Journaliciously.com about the same topic so that we do not send you a duplicative response). We may also use messages or comments collected through Journaliciously.com or official social media pages for our own purposes, such as to inform policy decisions or in public advocacy.

We may use data you provide and automatically generated data for statistical analysis to assess, for example, what information is of interest to users, technical design specifications, and system performance. This allows us to make general improvements to our site as well as to offer tailored content to email subscribers (e.g., a follow-up message to subscribers interested in a specific topic based on information they have provided or automatically generated data). We may also use your information in order to detect, prevent, and respond to security issues and other harmful or unlawful activities on the Site.


Sharing of this Information
Shared information NEVER includes daily entries, personal questions or answers to personal questions.
Information you choose to share with Journaliciously.com (directly and via third party sites) may be treated as public information. We may, for example, publish compilations of messages or comments collected through Journaliciously.com or official social media pages and provide them to national leaders, members of the press, or other individuals. However, we do not disclosure identifying information.
