Each time You visit this Site, You should check the date of this Privacy Statement (which appears above) and review any changes that have been made since Your last visit to the Site.

This Privacy Policy is written to inform You and anyone else who uses this Site of the information Avidd Community Services of New Jersey (formerly known as Special Homes of New Jersey, Inc.) & Bethel Ridge Corp. (collectively the “Company,” “we”, “our”, or “us”) may collect when You visit or use the Site, and how we may use such information.

Your privacy is very important to us. We strive to protect the personal information under our control and to maintain the security and integrity of that information.

We may change this Privacy Policy at any time. You should visit this page periodically to review the Terms of Use and the Privacy Policy.  You agree that Your continued access and use of this Site will bind You to any new terms of this Privacy Policy and/or the Terms of Use.

Collection of Information:

We may collect personally identifiable information (“PII”). PII is any information that can be used to identify a person, such as first and last name, email, home or business address, phone number, or protected health information (“PHI”). PHI is PII that includes certain additional data points, specifically it also relates to: (a) Your past, present, or future physical or mental health or condition, (b) the provision of health care to You, or (c) Your past, present, or future payment for the provision of health care, and it is created, received, transmitted, or maintained by the Company.

Currently, PII is only collected by the Company when You submit Your PII to us through form submission via our Site or via email communication.  Typically, visitors to our Site can use our Site without giving us any PII. Any PII that the Company collects is via voluntary form submission by a user and is received by email, which has been sent by You, the user.  Information that is sent to us via email or otherwise provided via our online forms may also be considered PHI. To the extent we receive PHI, we protect such PHI in accordance with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (“HIPAA”), as further described in our HIPAA Notice of Privacy Practices (NPP). Please note, we cannot secure any PII sent by email because such information can be accessed by other internet users. If You send us a question by e-mail, our use and disclosure of that information will be limited to the minimum necessary amount needed to respond to Your question. We do not compile PII from users commenting on the Site, asking questions of us via the Site, or making charitable donations via the Site.

Google Analytics

We may use a tool called “Google Analytics” to collect information about use of this Site. Google Analytics collects information such as how often users visit this Site, what pages they visit when they do so, and what other websites they used prior to coming to this Site. We use the information we get from Google Analytics only to improve this Site. Google Analytics collects only the IP address assigned to You on the date You visit this Site, rather than Your name or other identifying information. We do not combine the information collected through the use of Google Analytics with PII. Although Google Analytics plants a permanent cookie on Your web browser to identify You as a unique user the next time You visit this Site, the cookie cannot be used by anyone but Google. Google’s ability to use and share information collected by Google Analytics about Your visits to this Site is restricted by the Google Analytics Terms of Use and the Google Privacy Policy. You can prevent Google Analytics from recognizing You on return visits to this Site by disabling cookies on Your browser.


A “cookie” is a small data file that websites can write to be stored onto Your hard drive; they store basic information like user IDs.  However, the only PII cookies can contain is information supplied by the user for that particular site, and not information otherwise stored elsewhere on Your hard drive or from other websites.

We may use cookies to understand analytics relating to user patterns to gain statistical insight on the usefulness of our Site.  They assist us in learning whether our Site’s navigational structure is useful in perpetuating information to the user and allows us to further customize and improve the Site’s usability.

You can set Your browser to warn You prior to accepting cookies and/or reject them entirely. At this time, You do not need to accept cookies in order to use our Site.

We may engage with third-party advertisers and other service providers who may write their own cookies via our Site. This Privacy Policy covers only our use of cookies and not those written by other parties.

We may use Local Storage Objects (“LSOs”) such as HTML5 to store content information and preferences. Third parties with whom we partner to provide certain features on our Site or to display advertising based upon Your Web browsing activity use LSOs such as HTML 5 to collect and store information. Various browsers may offer their own management tools for removing HTML5 LSOs.  We may not recognize or respond to “do not track” technologies employed by Your browser.

We may also occasionally use “web beacons” (also known as “clear gifs,” “web bugs,” “1-pixel gifs,” etc.) that allow us to collect Non-Personally Identifiable Information about You, and for other purposes. Web beacons are tiny images, placed on a web page or e-mail that can tell us if You have visited a particular area of the Site. For example, if You have given us permission to send You emails, we may send You an email urging You to use a certain feature of the Site. If You do respond to that email and use that feature, the web beacon will tell us that our email communication with You has been successful. Because web beacons are used in conjunction with persistent cookies (described above), if You set Your browser to decline or deactivate cookies, web beacons cannot function.

IP Addresses

We collect IP (Internet Protocol) address from our users for the purpose of traffic analysis.  IP addresses are sets of assigned numbers given to a distinct internet connection.  They are not unique to a computer and cannot identify a user’s identity.  They do identify geographic locations and other information specifics such as Internet Service Providers, operating systems and web browsers in use.  While we may log the above information in addition to Your other web-browsing patterns, we do not sell this information or share it with anyone.  We use it simply to administer and improve our service with customizations and enhancements developed based on the above analyzed data.

Mobile Devices

If using a mobile device to access our Site, we may collect information sent by Your device, like its personal identifier, user settings and operating system, and user patterns.  This may include user location if You have enabled locations services on Your device.  If You prefer not to share this information with us, You can disable this feature on Your device.

Information Sharing and Disclosure

PII is not shared without your express permission except as noted below.

Information Shared With Service Providers

We engage with third-party service providers to administer our services that have access to Your PII and PHI for the sole purpose of performing such services on our behalf.  These third-party service providers are under a direct obligation not to disclose or use Your PII or PHI for any other purpose.

Third Parties

Our Site may contain links to third-party websites not owned or operated by the Company.  This Privacy Policy does not apply when you leave our Site and go to a third party website from our Site. If You submit PII to any of those websites, Your information is governed by their privacy policies. We encourage You to carefully read the privacy policy of any website that You visit.

De-Identified Information:

On occasion, we may make arrangements with certain customers or business partners to share certain de-identified aggregate pattern information in order to assist such customers or business partners in improving their service (such as evaluating patterns, utilization, usage and trends). We may also share such information with You or other users of our service. This type of information may be based in part on information related to You, but does not allow for the personal identification of any individual (in other words, it is “patient de-identified”). This information will not be used by the customer or business partner for marketing and/or any purpose other than as set forth above. For the purposes of research, demographic analysis and quality improvement processes, we may share such de-identified information with third parties.

Information Disclosed Under Business Transactions

In the event of a company merger, acquisition or asset sale, or other asset relinquishment, Your PII may be disclosed or transferred as a business asset to the acquiring party in connection with the transaction.

In Protection of the Company and Others

The Company will cooperate lawfully with government and legal authorities, or private parties to comply with the law.  We shall disclose any information we believe necessary and appropriate, at our discretion if deemed required to: (a) enforce our Terms of Use, (b) respond to a legal process, (c) protect the property, rights and safety of the Company, its users, the public in general and our business associates, (d) stop any illegal activity and (e) comply with any applicable local, state or federal laws.

California Shine the Light Law:

California Civil Code Section 1798.83, known as the “Shine the Light” law, permits individuals who are California residents to request and obtain from us a list of what Personal Data (if any) we disclosed to third parties for direct marketing purposes in the preceding calendar year and the names and addresses of those third parties. We will never disclose your PII to third parties for direct marketing purposes without your authorization. However, if you would like to make a request for information under the Shine The Light law, please contact us by email at avidd@aviddnj.org or physical mail at 92 Broadway, Denville, NJ 07834. Requests may be made only once a year and are free of charge.


We protect the PII obtained through this Site in encrypted devices. We also contract with third party service providers who store our data on their securely designed database(s). We use reasonable and appropriate safeguards to protect Your PII consistent with applicable law.

Retention of Information:

We will store and maintain Your PII in accordance with the requirements of the applicable law.  We will also retain Your information for as long as Your account is active or as needed to provide You services and as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements.
