Collection and Use of Information
The Personal Information We Collect. This Policy applies to all information collected by or submitted to [web URL]. We consider “personal information” to mean information about an identifiable individual. If you make purchases from or through the Website or open an account, or engage in other activities on the Site, you will be asked to provide a variety of information including, but not limited to, your name, mailing address, email address, phone number, and information about you.
IP Address. An IP (Internet Protocol) address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer by your internet service provider when you log on. Your IP address is not linked to your Personal Information, but SJB does reserve the right to use IP addresses to identify individuals who threaten the Website or other users or visitors. IP addresses may also be used to help diagnose problems with the Website and to gather broad demographic information.
Other Information. When you access the Website, SJB will automatically receive some information about your use of the service. The type of information that is automatically collected by SJB includes such things as the date and time of access of the Site, the Internet protocol (IP) address of the computer that you are using, the domain and host from which you access the Internet, your browser software and operating system, the referring website address, and the kinds of business activities you are engaged in while using the Site. This information is used to help us improve and enhance the website to better meet the needs of its users.
SJB will also aggregate Personal Information and may use, share and disclose such aggregated Personal Information as permitted by law. For example, we may use such aggregated Personal Information for research and product development purposes and may also share such aggregated Personal Information with SJB’s business partners.
Regardless of whether a User has chosen to limit SJB’s sharing of Personal Information as collected on the Website, SJB may, without restriction, use, share and disclose aggregated statistics about Users, along with specific information concerning individual Users that is not Personal Information in any way permitted by applicable law.
If you want to delete any cookies that were already sent to your computer, please refer to your web browser’s “Help” facility. In addition, most web browsers can be set to prevent you from receiving new cookies, notify you before accepting cookies or disable cookies altogether. Details about this can normally be found in the “Help” facility provided with your browser. Please note that if you disable cookies you may not be able to take advantage of some of the Site's interactive functionality.
Do Not Track Signals
Certain web browsers provide users with an option by which you may have your browser send a “Do Not Track” signal to websites that you are visiting, advising the recipient websites that you do not want to have your online activity tracked. However, the way browsers communicate such “Do Not Track” signals is not yet uniform and, accordingly, our Website does not take any action in response to such signals. In the event a final standard is developed and accepted, we may reassess how we should respond to such signals.
We only collect, use and/or disclose your Personal Information with your consent. Your consent may be implied when you provide personal information required to purchase products or other services through the Website or we may ask for your express consent under some circumstances for some purposes. With your consent, we will collect and maintain your personal information; share your personal information with third parties for marketing or other purposes; use your Personal Information to communicate with you electronically and otherwise; and track your activities on the Site using cookies and other tracking devices. We do not and will not share, sell or rent your Personal information with third parties for marketing and/or other purposes unless we first obtain your express consent.
You must be 18 years of age to use the Site. SJB does not knowingly collect or maintain any Personal Information from children under the age of 13, and no part of this Site is designed with the purpose of attracting such children. This Website is intended for Users who reside in the United States. If you use the Site from any country outside the United States, the various communications will necessarily result in the transfer of information across international boundaries.

You may opt-out of receiving future mailings or other messages from us by following the instructions in the e-mail or other message you receive from us or by following the instructions set forth in the Opting In and Opting Out of Electronic Communications section in this Policy.
Opting In and Opting Out of Electronic Communications. At certain points where Personal Information is collected on our Site, there may be a box to indicate that you wish to receive certain information or communications from us. You may opt out of receiving electronic communications, such as emails from us at any time. In all of our electronic communications you will be given the opportunity to opt out of receiving future communications.
Lawful Access, Legal Action and Investigations. Your Personal Information may otherwise be disclosed to non-affiliated third parties as either permitted by, or to comply with, applicable laws and regulations. Your Personal Information may be transmitted through and stored on servers outside your home country and may be accessed by authorities in those jurisdictions. We may disclose Personal Information if we believe it is necessary to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding suspected illegal activities or fraud, situations involving the physical safety of any person, violations of our Terms and Conditions of Use, or otherwise in accordance with applicable law.
Disclosure of Personal Information to Non-Affiliated Third Parties. In addition to the above disclosures, SJB may share your Personal Information, without restriction, with companies and organizations that we retain to perform services for us, such as those that provide data processing, computer software maintenance and development, and companies providing professional, legal or accounting advice to us. In such situations, SJB requires that these companies and organizations agree to (a) maintain the confidentiality of the Personal Information, and (b) limit the use of such Personal Information to the purposes for which it was provided. We will not sell, rent or market Personal Information collected on this SJB to non-affiliated third parties for their marketing purposes, unless we have your express consent. However, we may disclose aggregated statistics about visitors to the Site, along with anonymous information concerning individual users of the Site. We may combine anonymous information and/or aggregate information we collect with additional anonymous and/or aggregate information collected from other sources. We may share anonymous information (including aggregate information) we collect regarding our users with third parties (such as advisors, and/or consultants) for various business purposes including conducting general business analysis, and developing website content and services.
Retention of Personal Information. Personal Information is retained to deliver our services, to otherwise fulfill identified or apparent purposes, and Personal Information may be retained for record-keeping. At some point SJB may elect to destroy, erase or anonymize your Personal Information. Once anonymized, we undertake not to re-identify the information.
Links to Other Site and Services
The Site may contain links to various other sites which may ask to collect user information voluntarily or otherwise collect certain information (for example, your IP address). Please be aware that these other websites may have different privacy policies that may subject users to different privacy practices. Please review the privacy policies of such other websites for information concerning what information is collected on such websites and how it is used.
Information Storage and Protection
SJB will maintain reasonable procedures to protect the security and confidentiality of Personal Information provided to it by Users, in accordance with applicable law.
There are industry standard safeguards in place to protect Users’ Personal Information, such as the use of firewalls and SSL certificates, and limiting access to such information by company personnel. Personal Information will be stored in databases and servers located in the United States. However, no transmission made through the internet can be made completely secure, and accordingly, we will not be liable for the disclosure of any Users’ Personal Information that occurs as a result of transmission errors or the actions of any third party to the fullest extent permitted by law.
In the unlikely event that we determine that there may have been a security breach that results in the unauthorized disclosure of Personal Information to a third party, SJB will promptly notify consumers whose Personal Information it reasonably believes may have been compromised by posting information on the Website and, if email contact is possible, then also by sending an email notification with respect to the situation.
Options to Review and Opt-Out Choices
In addition to having the ability to opt-out of receiving electronic communications, such as emails from SJB by following the unsubscribe link in the footer of each email, users may access, review and, in certain situations, update, revise and/or delete certain Personal Information by sending an email to our SJB at email@example.com, providing the contact information we are using to communicate with you, such as your email address. Additionally, please note that while you may request the updating, revision or deletion of such information, a copy of the unrevised information may be maintained in SJB’s records after any such revision or deletion.
If for any reason you wish to discontinue the use of the Website and have your Personal Information removed from our database, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
