Privacy Policy

Updated 7 April 2022

This policy is now effective for all JS* Initiatives websites.

What personal data we collect and why we collect it


Some features on sites owned by JS* Initiatives require you to register a JS* account, which grants you access to areas designated to clients, partners, or contractors, depending on the method.

For legacy reasons, your registration details are kept on a secure server using standard WordPress methods of encryption, salted hashing, and other security measures.


If you are not logged in, no cookie will be placed by us. Unless you are a client, this will hold true for you.

If you visit our login page, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.

When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.


Our websites may use Google Analytics in order to collect tracking data such as referral sources and traffic volume. Data is collected through an embedded script, which is subject to Google's terms of service.

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on our websites may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

We will do our best to limit your exposure to embedded content, and we support your decisions to control your privacy through these websites.

Who we share your data with

User data associated with any individual JS* Initiatives site is usable across the network. We do not share any stored details with any third-parties.

Data retrieved from third-party sites such as YouTube via authentication is stored as minimally as possible.

How long we retain your data

For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

What rights you have over your data

If you have an account on this site, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

Where we send your data

Form pages may use instances of reCaptcha 3, and login pages may contain optional links to a third-party login site for authentication. Only the necessary minimal server data is used to link these services, and your user data on JS* Initiatives sites are not shared forward this way.

Additional information

How we protect your data

All JS* Initiatives websites use the core functions of the open-source frameworks WordPress and Svelte to secure and store all user data.

What data breach procedures we have in place

In case of data breach, if you are registered with an account, system administrators will reset all passwords and revoke any third-party API tokens.

All active email addresses will be immediately notified of the breach.

What third parties we receive data from

When you integrate with YouTube, we receive a token from Google to allow us to receive channel, video, and caption data for the purposes of updating your experience and uploading finished captions.
