We also recognize that our websites my be frequented by children, and we have provided a Children's Privacy section to specifically address concerns of parents of children under the age of thirteen.
The majority of products and services on our sites are offered without our collecting any Personal Information from you.

It is readily apparent when Personal Information is collected, as an online form will be provided for you to fill out. When you make a purchase, we collect your street and billing addresses, your phone number, and credit card information.

Even if you choose not to give information we request, you can still visit most of the website, but you may be unable to access certain options, offers, and services.

Some portions of our website may be directed in whole or in part to children under thirteen years of age. In these areas of our website, our conduct is governed by federal law and regulations that address children's online privacy, as well as by the guidelines of the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA). You can find more information about COPPA on the FTC website at:
We do not directly collect Personal Information from children under 13 in the child-directed areas of our website, except as permitted by federal regulations and COPPA guidelines. We do sometimes offer promotions in these areas of our website, such as a sweepstakes or contest. In those cases, we may permit the child submit a first name and email address only, along with the name and email address of his/her parent. We then notify the parent about the child's submission, and ask the parent to provide "verifiable parental consent" for the collection of the child's Personal Information and participation in the sweepstakes or contest. If we do not receive such consent within a reasonable period of time, we remove the submitted information from our database. If the parent provides such consent and permits the child's participation in the promotion and the child subsequently wins, we contact the parent (not the child) for further Personal Information needed for any prize delivery. We generally do not use Personal Information about the child for any purpose other than completion of the sweepstakes or contest, unless we've explicitly said so in the notice to parents. We generally delete both the Personal Information about the child and the parent from our database within a reasonable time after the conclusion of these promotions, unless the parent has given permission for us to retain the information in our files. We also might permit a child to send us an email asking us a specific question. We will respond to the child on a one-time basis, but we generally do not store the name, email address, or the email itself in our operational database.
Under federal law, websites directed to children under 13 are prohibited from conditioning a child's participation in an activity on the child's disclosing more Personal Information than is reasonably necessary to engage in the activity. We comply fully with this requirement.
Jel Sert encourages parents and guardians to monitor and participate in their children's online activities. Unless you are viewing a portion of the website directed specifically to children, no information should be submitted to this site by users under 13 years of age. Where appropriate, Jel Sert may take steps to verify the age of visitors to help ensure compliance with these policies.
Please be advised that our website may contain links to third-party websites. The linked sites are not under the control of Jel Sert, and we are not responsible for the contents or privacy practices of any linked site or any link on a linked site.
Jel Sert intends to make this website available to visitors from the United States only, and does not intend to make it available for persons from other jurisdictions. If you are from a jurisdiction outside the United States, please do not use or provide any Personal Information to this website.
