We employ cookie technology to store and track information about the users of the Site. Cookies are a feature of web browser software that allows web servers to recognize the computer used to access a web site. Cookies are small pieces of data that are stored by a user's web browser on the user's hard drive. Cookies can remember what information a user accesses on one web page to simplify subsequent interactions with that web site by the same user or to use the information to streamline the user's transactions on related web pages. This makes it easier for a user to move from web page to web page and to complete transactions over the Internet. Cookies should make your online experience easier and more personalized.
Login areas on the Site require that your browser accept session cookies. We use session cookies to verify that you are properly signed in and to display information regarding the services to which you have subscribed.
Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you decide if and how your computer will accept a cookie by establishing your preferences in your web browser. You may change your browser to prevent the browser from accepting cookies. Some of our services (as well as certain portions and features of the Site), however, may not work correctly or will not work at all if your browser is set not to accept cookies.
We employ web beacons (small pieces of data that are embedded in images on the pages of web sites) and auditing software to track page views and entry and exit points to and from the Site. In addition, we may use web beacons, cookies, customized links and/or similar technologies to determine whether electronic newsletters sent by us to those who have opted to receive them from us have been opened and which links are clicked. The data collected will only be used in an aggregate form and will not contain any Personally Identifiable Information, as that term is defined below.
Types of Information Collected
We use Traffic Data to analyze trends, administer the Site, track user's movement, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. We may provide Traffic Data and/or other aggregate non-personally identifying information to third parties.
If you choose to register with us and subscribe to our services (become an "Authorized User"), you will be asked to create a user name and account password and provide us with certain information that identifies you. Specifically, we will require certain "Personally Identifiable Information" from you as an individual online to verify your identity and to process your requests as an individual. Personally Identifiable Information may include information such as: full name; mailing and home address; email address; date of birth; telephone number; screen name; and other items.
You may choose not to provide us with any Personally Identifiable Information. In such an event, you can still access and use some portions of the Site. You will not, however, be able to access services that we may offer or use those portions or features of the Site that require your Personally Identifiable Information.
If you communicate with us by e-mail, or otherwise complete online forms, surveys, or the like, any information provided in such communication may be collected as Personally Identifiable Information.
Uses and Sharing of Information Collected
In general, we will only use Personally Identifiable Information for the purposes for which such information was provided to us.
We may use your Personally Identifiable Information for the following purposes: (a) to verify the information you provided to us; (b) to provide you the services that you have requested; (c) to provide you with information about us and our programs and services; (d) to provide services which Authorized Users are entitled in accordance with our Terms and Conditions along with any other agreements; (e) to produce aggregate statistical data for the improvement of services offered by us; (f) to respond to your inquiries; (g) to offer you other products, programs or services that we believe may be of interest to you; and (h) for any other purposes related to those set forth above.
From time to time, we may send you service-related communications. For instance, if our service is temporarily suspended for maintenance, we might send you notification e-mail. Generally, you may not opt-out of these communications, which are not promotional in nature. If you do not wish to receive them, you have the option to deactivate your account.
If you wish to subscribe to our newsletter(s), we will use your name and e-mail address to send the newsletter to you. Out of respect for your privacy, we provide an easy way for you to unsubscribe, if needed. Please see the "Opt-out/Discontinue" section below for further details.
In the event JPMA goes through a business transition, such as a merger, acquisition by another company, sale of all or a portion of its assets, or reorganization or liquidation, JPMA reserves the right to transfer, sell or assign information concerning the Site and your use of the Site, including without limitation your Personally Identifiable Information.
While Authorized Users cannot unsubscribe from all messages relating to our services, we provide users the opportunity to 'opt-out' of having Personally Identifiable Information used for certain purposes, when we ask for this information. If you no longer wish to receive our newsletter and promotional communications, you may opt-out of receiving them by following the instructions included in each newsletter or communication. An Authorized User may contact JPMA at any time to request that all Personally Identifiable Information in JPMA's possession and control be deactivated and that services be discontinued.
Changing your Personally Identifiable Information
If your Personally Identifiable Information changes, you may update it by making the change on your account page.
This Site contains links to third-party web sites. These links are provided solely as a convenience to you and not as an endorsement by JPMA of the contents on such third party web sites. We are not responsible for the privacy practices or content of linked third party sites.
Bulletin Boards and Chat Rooms
If you use a bulletin board or chat room on this Site, you should be aware that any Personally Identifiable Information you submit there can be read, collected, or used by other users of these forums, and could be used to send you unsolicited messages. We are not responsible for the Personally Identifiable Information you choose to submit in these forums.
We follow generally accepted industry standards to protect the Personally Identifiable Information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it.
The Site has security measures in place intended to protect the loss, misuse and alteration of the information under our control. We take appropriate security measures to protect against unauthorized access to or unauthorized alteration, disclosure or destruction of data. These include internal reviews of our data collection, storage and processing practices and security measures, as well as physical and technical security measures to guard against unauthorized access to systems where we store personal data.
We safeguard the privacy of information you provide us through the Site. For online service requests, we use programs that encrypt the information you provide on the form before transmission to us. Information you provide to us online, including Personally Identifiable Information is transmitted to us through a secured socket layer (SSL) transmission. The information is decrypted only upon receipt by us.
Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet or method of electronic storage is 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your Personally Identifiable Information, we cannot ensure or guarantee the absolute security of any information you transmit to us or from our online services, and you do so at your own risk.
The security of your account also depends on keeping your user name and account password confidential, and you should not share your user name or account password with anyone. If you do share your account information with a third party, they will have access to your account and your Personally Identifiable Information.
