Types of information that is collected

The majority of products and services on our sites are offered without our collecting any Personal Information from you. There are a few instances on our sites where the collection of Personal Information is necessary. These situations include activities such as making a purchase or entering a contest. 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. In addition, we may request Personal Information when you register to receive additional information regarding our products and services or send us a question. 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.

Jel Sert may also use technology to collect information for site administration purposes that may not be readily apparent to you, such as "cookies" and "IP Address Tracking". This technology is generally not used to collect any personally identifiable information. Instead the technology is used to collect information about such things as how many times our websites are accessed, what pages are being viewed, and other aggregate or statistical information about visitor site traffic patterns.

The technology may also be used to provide you with improved service or tailored content during visits to the site. If for any reason you wish to not take advantage of cookies, you may set your browser to not accept them. This may disable or render unusable some of the features of the Jel Sert website. The detection and use your IP address or domain name is used for internal traffic monitoring and capacity purposes or to help us administer our website.

How personal information will be used

Jel Sert uses Personal Information in a limited number of ways. For instance, if you purchase Jel Sert merchandise, we use such information to process your order, or if you contact us for help we will use the information to respond to your request. We use Personal Information to notify you if you've won a game or contest. Personal Information can be used to send you email updates and newsletters about our sites. We may also use Personal Information to send you Jel Sert email promotions and special offers.

If you do not wish to receive e-mail updates, please contact us using the information in the "Contact Information" section specified below. Personal information provided by users who are 13 or more years of age may also be used for marketing and promotional purposes only by Jel Sert and its subsidiaries and affiliates. Jel Sert does not rent, sell or otherwise distribute Personal Information to third parties, except as noted in the following section.

While we use all reasonable efforts to safeguard the confidentiality of your Personal Information, Jel Sert will have no liability for disclosure of any information obtained due to errors in transmission or the unauthorized acts of third parties. Jel Sert also reserves the right to change or update this Privacy Policy, or any other policy or practice, at anytime. Any changes or updates will be effective immediately upon posting to the Jel Sert website.

Sharing personal information with third parties

We may share your Personal Information with third parties for various reasons. For example, we need to share such information with companies that help us deliver requested products or services, such as a shipping company that delivers a package. These companies are generally allowed to use the information only to deliver the product or service, and we take steps to make sure that such third parties treat this information in accordance with the terms in our Privacy Policy.

On occasion, we may offer promotions in conjunction with a sponsor. We will share Personal Information with the sponsor if they need it to contact you or send you a product as part of the promotion. We may also share Personal Information with the sponsors so that they can send you other special promotions they offer, but only if you give us your permission to do so, and we will share it only with that specific sponsor.

We also reserve the right to use and disclose statistical or aggregated non-personally identifiable information as we decide in our sole discretion. By way of example, this may include sharing statistical or aggregate information about our visitors with advertisers, business partners, sponsors and other third parties. This data may also be used to customize Jel Sert website content and advertising to deliver a better experience to our visitors.

In the event of the sale or transfer of all or part of the business, certain Personal Information may be disclosed, as appropriate, to certain third parties.

Jel Sert reserves the right to disclose Personal Information in special cases, when we have reason to believe that disclosing this information is necessary to identify, contact or take action against someone who may be causing injury to or interference with (either intentionally or unintentionally) our rights or property, other Jel Sert website users, or anyone else that could be harmed by such activities. We may also disclose Personal Information in response to a subpoena or when we believe in good faith that the law requires it or to respond to an emergency situation.

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:

http://www.ftc.gov/privacy/privacyinitiatives/childrens.html

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.

Disclosure of Personal Information about Children

We generally do not rent or sell Personal Information about children to third parties. In certain circumstances, we may share this information with trusted service providers that need access to this information to provide operational or other support services. To protect the confidentiality and security of this information, these service providers must agree to safeguard all such information in compliance with our Privacy Policy, and we generally do not permit such third parties to send marketing communications to children under 13. We also reserve the right to disclose Personal Information about children under 13 in special cases, such as where we have reason to believe that disclosing this information is necessary to identify, contact, or take action against someone who may be causing injury to or interference with (either intentionally or unintentionally) our rights or property, website visitors, or anyone else that could be harmed by such activities. We may also disclose Personal Information in response to a subpoena or when we believe in good faith that the law requires it or to respond to an emergency situation.

Parental Access and Other Matters

In general, a parent may review Personal Information that we maintain about her child, and may request the deletion of that information and direct us to not collect any further such information from her child. The parent should contact Jel Sert using the information at the end of this Privacy Policy if she would like to access her child's information, or if she has any other questions about our practices related to Personal Information about children.

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.

Linked Sites

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.

Foreign Visitors

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.
