We, at Jewcy, published by Jewcy Media LCC (“Jewcy”, “us”, “our” or “we”), understand that your privacy is important to you, and we are committed to protecting your privacy online. Please read the information below, which outlines our privacy practices concerning certain Personal Information and other data that we receive and collect when you use the Jewcy website and various related services (collectively, including all content available through the Jewcy.com domain name, the “Website”).

You acknowledge that this Privacy Policy is part of our Terms of Use, and by accessing or using the Website, you agree to be bound by all of its terms and conditions. If you do not agree to these terms, please do not access or use the Website.

1. Information Collected

A. Personal Information. In order to better provide you with our full range of services, we collect personal information from our users. “Personal Information” is information that personally identifies you, such as your name, address, email address, or phone number. You may provide certain Personal Information to us when you: (1) create an account or register to receive an email newsletter; (2) enter into a promotion or contest that requires registration; (3) sign up for special offers from third parties; (4) send email messages or otherwise send or transmit information to us; (5) log-in or comment using Facebook Connect or Twitter; (6) visit the site. You may, of course, decline to submit Personal Information through the Website, in which case, you can still view user-generated content and explore the Website, but we may not be able to provide certain services to you.  If you choose to submit Personal Information to us through the Website, we may combine the information you submit under your account with information from other Jewcy services or third parties in order to provide you with a better experience and to improve the quality of our services.

B. Non-Personal Information. In addition, we collect other, non-personal information from visitors to the Website through the use of analytic software. “Non-Personal Information” is information that does not, in and of itself, identify you specifically. It is information that is recorded about the Website’s users, such as the URL, IP address and browser type, and collected into groups so that it no longer refers to an individually identifiable user. We may use Non-Personal Information to improve the content and design of the Website and to create new features, promotions and services by analyzing user trends and preferences. We may also share with third parties (such as advertisers) certain pieces of Non-Personal Information, such as the number of users who clicked on a particular advertisement.

C. Cookies. Cookies are small data text files that are sent to your computer when you visit a website, allowing the website to recognize your browser when you visit that website again. We may use cookies and/or other technologies to store user preferences and track user trends; to facilitate and customize your use of the Website; to monitor the effectiveness of our marketing campaigns; and to record information about your usage, such as when you use, the Website, which channels, groups and favorites you subscribe to, the contacts you communicate with and the information you click on or display within the Website.   Most browsers are initially set up to accept cookies, but you can reset your browser to refuse all cookies or to indicate when a cookie is being sent. However, some features and services on the Website may not function properly if your cookies are disabled.

D. We use a third-party service provider, [Insound], to manage Shop JEWCY.  By making purchases at Shop JEWCY, Insound may ask You to provide information about yourself in order to better serve You.  For example, some of the information collected may include name, title, address, phone number, email address, birthdate, and personal information concerning your interests, occupation, gender and other demographic information.  In addition, if You use a credit card on the Shopping Area, Insound will also collect your credit card account number, expiration date, and related information.  The collection, storage, dissemination and use of such information is subject to the terms and conditions of the [Insound] Terms and Conditions of Use and Privacy Policy.  See Section 4 below “Privacy Policies of Third Party Websites” for more information regarding our privacy policy for Third Party Websites.

2. Release of Information.

Occasionally, we may be required to provide Personal Information to various governmental authorities pursuant to a court order, subpoena or other judicial process and to otherwise cooperate with law enforcement investigations.  We reserve the right to report to law enforcement agencies any activities that we in good faith believe to be unlawful. Additionally, we may disclose Personal Information in the good-faith belief that such action is necessary to  protect and defend the rights or property of JEWCY or its affiliates or the users of the Website.  We may also provide Non-Personal Information about our customers’ traffic patterns and related site information to third party advertisers, but these statistics do not include any Personal Information.

3. Security of Information. At Jewcy, we endeavor to protect your Personal Information and have taken various steps, consistent with current industry standards, including, without limitation, internal reviews of our data collection, storage and processing practices and security measures, as well as physical security measures to guard against unauthorized access to systems where we store personal data. Furthermore, access to Personal Information is restricted to select employees, contractors and agents who are bound by certain confidentiality obligations.

Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet or any wireless network can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your Personal Information, you acknowledge that: (a) there are security and privacy limitations of the Internet which are beyond our control; (b) the security, integrity and privacy of any and all information and data exchanged between you and us through this site cannot be guaranteed; and (c) any such information and data may be viewed or tampered with in transit by a third party.

4. Privacy Policies of Third Party Websites. Except as otherwise discussed in this Privacy Policy, this document only addresses the use and disclosure of information we collect from you. Because the Website includes user-generated content, including links to third party websites, it is possible that visitors to the Website will be redirected to other, unaffiliated websites. Other websites that are or may become accessible through the Website have their own privacy policies and data collection, use and disclosure practices. Please consult each website’s privacy policy. We are not responsible for the policies or practices of third parties. Additionally, other companies that place advertising on the Website may collect information about you when you view or click on their advertising through the use of cookies. We cannot control this collection of information. You should contact these advertisers directly if you have any questions about their use of the information that they collect.

5. Miscellaneous Privacy Issues.

A. Protecting children’s privacy is important to us.  Our policy is that we do not knowingly collect, use or disclose Personal Information about visitors that are under 13 years of age. In the event that we learn that we have collected personal information from a person under the age of 13, we will delete that information as quickly as possible. In no way is any Website content, advertising, or material intended for any persons under 13 years of age.

B. You should also be aware that when Personal Information or content is voluntarily disclosed on blogs, discussion forums, message boards, chat rooms, other public areas on the Website, that information, along with any information disclosed in your communication, becomes publicly available and can be collected and used by third parties. Your account name (not your email address), along with other optionally disclosed material (including a picture, logo, or other display provided by you) is displayed to other users when you upload content or send messages through the Website and other users can contact you through messages and comments. Any content that you submit to the Website may be redistributed through the internet and other media channels, and may be viewed by the general public. Such activities are beyond our control and this Privacy Policy does not apply to such information. If you do not want your Personal Information to be viewed by third parties, you are advised not to make any submissions of content, and you should not create a user account. We use third-party advertising companies to serve ads when you visit our website. These companies may use information (not including your name, address, email address, or telephone number) about your visits to this and other websites in order to provide advertisements about goods and services of interest to you. If you would like more information about this practice and to know your choices about not having this information used by these companies, click here <http://www.google.com/privacy_ads.html> .

C. Jewcy adheres to the U.S. Safe Harbor privacy principles. For more information about the Safe Harbor framework or our registration, please refer to the United States Department of Commerce’s website at http://www.commerce.gov/.

D. We reserve the right to change this Privacy Policy at any time. Such changes, modifications, additions or deletions shall be effective immediately upon notice thereof, which may be given by means including, but not limited to, posting the revised Privacy Policy on this page. You acknowledge and agree that it is your responsibility to maintain a valid email address as a registered user, review the Website and this Privacy Policy periodically and to be aware of any modifications. Your continued use of the Website after such modifications will constitute your: (a) acknowledgment of the modified Privacy Policy; and (b) agreement to abide and be bound by the modified Privacy Policy.
