The short of it is: we promise not to misuse your information.
The long of it:
JETAASC will not sell, distribute, or share your information with absolutely anyone, except under the following limited circumstances:
Each year, as part of our grant request, we provide CLAIR NY a list of JET Alumni living in the Southern California and Arizona area with: their names, years on JET, & JET prefecture. All other information will only be accessible to JETAA officers. As a result of this financial support, membership is free.
If any other organization (say, a prefectural organization) asks for the contact info of people according to certain criteria, if we think it is in the best interests of our members, JETAASC will act as a go-between.
We are currently looking into developing a better inter-JET community link. When this comes about, we will offer an opt-in program where, if you choose, your information may be shared just among the JET community. Example features would include the ability to look up everyone who’d lived in a certain prefecture during a certain time period, and see where they are in the world — or to search the JET community for people with certain skills, like a lawyer or a doctor. This functionality is not yet complete, and when it is implemented, access will only be on a volunteer basis.
That’s it! We’re not going to let random schmoes off the street at you, and we’re not going to bombard you with marketing email.
What you can expect from joining up with us:
Regular newsletters about activities in the area.
Notices about job opportunities.
The ability to interact with the JET community through our website — things like RSVPing for events, posting pictures, catching up with old friends, and the like!
If any of this is unclear, please feel free to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
