jaguarstones.com privacy policy

 


Summary
We take your online privacy seriously. You may visit this site anonymously as often as you like without providing any personally identifying information (such as your name, address or e-mail address). We do not collect personally identifying information from you except when you specifically provide it, and we protect the information we receive. We never share your information with third parties. Please read below for a further explanation of what information we gather and how we use it.


The Information You Provide
As you explore our website, you will come across places in which we ask you to provide us voluntarily with information about yourself. In most of these instances we are seeking only your e-mail address so that we can send you the specific information that you request, such as a newsletter or online subscription. In other instances, such as a contest or the Jaguar Stones Club, we request both your name, e-mail address and your address (along with your contest answer), so that we can contact you by name and deliver the information or materials requested. All of these activities--the subscriptions, the Club and contests--are purely voluntary; if you do not wish to reveal your name, e-mail address or other information, you are free simply to ignore these offerings. If you decide to participate, we will not use your name or e-mail address for any purpose other than as stated, and will not sell or rent your name or address to third parties.


At other places in this site, we ask for your feedback, opinion or suggestions, and provide you with a link for e-mailing us your response. If you send your e-mail to us, it will include your e-mail address in the "From" line. But again, as in the case of subscriptions and contests, we promise to use the information we receive in this manner only for the purpose of responding to your questions or suggestions, and will not provide your e-mail address to anyone else.


One last area in which we ask for your name is on comment boards or forums--places on the site where you can participate in a discussion of a particular subject by posting written comments which are then entirely public. We ask for a name simply so that other people reading a string of comments will be able to determine which comments come from the same person. You may, therefore, provide a nickname or alias, if you prefer, so that your identity is not disclosed. You should be aware that if you do voluntarily disclose personal information (e.g. user name, e-mail address) on the bulletin boards or forums, that information can be collected and used by others and may result in unsolicited messages from other posters or parties. If you choose to participate anonymously, you should remember that you are still legally liable for the material you post, including claims of libel, invasion of privacy and copyright infringement.


Removing Your E-mail Address
If you have previously provided us with your e-mail address and later decide that you do not want us to have it, simply e-mail us at info@jaguarstones.com with unsubscribe in the subject line. We will remove you from our list, but cannot promise that it will happen immediately.


Links to Other Sites
Our site contains links to other sites that are not under our control. Such other sites do not necessarily follow our privacy policies, and may place cookies on your computer. We do not control cookies placed on your computer by third parties whose links appear on our site.


Security of Private Information
We take reasonable steps to protect the information you provide us from theft, alteration or unauthorized inspection.


Parents and Guardians
We encourage you to get involved with your children's online usage and to be aware of the activities in which they are participating. We also ask you to check back here regularly to see what our latest policies are, particularly those relating to children.

You should be aware that if your children voluntarily disclose their names, e-mail addresses or other information on bulletin boards or chat areas of other Web sites, such disclosures may result in unsolicited messages from other parties. We suggest that you discourage your child from providing such information unless you are confident that the information will not be misused.
