This Privacy Policy describes Jabian, LLC's ("Jabian," "we, "us" or "our") use and sharing of personally identifiable information ("PII") that users (“users” or “you”) voluntarily provide to Jabian when they use or otherwise register personally or with the assistance of Jabian personnel through Jabian's website, http://www.jabian.com (the "Site"). By using and submitting your information through this Site, you consent to this Privacy Policy and to Jabian's collection and sharing of your personally identifiable information according to the terms of this Privacy Policy. This Site is a general audience Site and does not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from children under 18 years of age.

This privacy policy is applicable only to Jabian's website and does not apply to any third party websites or to other companies or persons. The Site may contain links to, and media and other content from, other sites. In addition, such third-party media and content may also contain external links. Because of the dynamic media capabilities of the Site, it may not be clear to you which links are embedded in the Site and which are embedded in third-party media and/or content. Jabian cannot and does not guarantee the privacy policies and practices of any third party. Jabian does not control, operate, or endorse any information, products, or services of any third-party web sites that may be reached through links from the Site. The use of any personal information provided by you to such a third party will be governed by that party's privacy policy. If you are unsure whether a web site is controlled, affiliated, or managed by Jabian, you should review the privacy policy at each linked web site to determine how that site treats your personal information.

JABIAN MAY CHANGE THIS PRIVACY POLICY AT ANY TIME AND FROM TIME TO TIME IN OUR SOLE DISCRETION WITHOUT NOTICE TO YOU BY UPDATING THIS POSTING. YOU SHOULD PERIODICALLY REVIEW THIS PRIVACY POLICY CAREFULLY IN ORDER TO MAKE SURE THAT YOU ARE AWARE OF THE MOST CURRENT TERMS AND CONDITIONS FOR THE USE OF THE SITE. BY USING THIS SITE, YOU AGREE TO BE BOUND BY ANY SUCH REVISIONS AND TO JABIAN'S COLLECTION AND SHARING OF YOUR PII ACCORDING TO THE TERMS OF THE UPDATED PRIVACY POLICY. YOU SHOULD THEREFORE PERIODICALLY VISIT THIS SITE AND PAGE TO DETERMINE THE THEN CURRENT TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF USE TO WHICH YOU ARE BOUND.

This privacy policy does not apply to information disclosed to or obtained by Jabian other than that through the Site.

What Type of Information Do We Collect?

We may collect PII, such as your name, email address, mailing address, telephone number or other identifiers, from you. We may also collect information concerning you, including, but not limited to, the kind of product or service you are seeking from Jabian.

We may also collect PII from you for our email and hard-copy marketing program unless you “opt-out” and request that you not be contacted in conjunction with such marketing activities. We may use this information for internal purposes, such as registering you as a user on our web site (www.Jabian.com), marketing and promotion, or to provide you with other products and services.

What are cookies and how are they used by Jabian?

We may place Internet cookies on your hard drive. Internet cookies are small files that may be placed on your hard disk for record-keeping purposes. Cookies are used to (a) remind us of who you are in order to deliver you better service; (b) estimate our audience size by determining repeat usage of the Site to help target advertisements based on user interests and behavior; and (c) measure certain traffic patterns for use as a research tool to understand how our users’ habits are similar or different from one another. You can set your browser to notify you when you receive a cookie, giving you the chance to decide whether or not to accept it. By not accepting cookies, some Site pages may not display properly or you may not be permitted to access certain information.

Jabian may also collect IP addresses (the Internet address of a computer) to track a user’s session while the user remains anonymous. We analyze this data for certain trends in statistics, such as which parts of our site users are visiting and how long they spend there. In general, we do not link your IP addresses to anything personally identifiable to you.

What Information Do We Share and With Whom?

We do not rent or sell your information to outside marketers. Jabian may share your information (as described above) with its affiliates, subsidiaries, or divisions and with their respective officers, directors, employees, accountants, attorneys, and agents, with distributors or dealers of Jabian products and services, or with Jabian's marketing partners. In certain circumstances, we may share your information with service providers that need access to your information to provide operational or other support services. To ensure the confidentiality and security of your information, service providers must agree to safeguard your information in strict compliance with this policy.

We also may provide information to regulatory authorities and law enforcement officials in accordance with applicable law or when we otherwise believe in good faith that the law requires it. There may be instances when we may access or disclose your information in order to protect or defend the legal rights or property of Jabian and its affiliated companies or their employees and agents, to protect the safety and security of users, and to protect against fraud. Jabian may sell, transfer or otherwise share some or all of its assets in connection with a merger, reorganization or sale of assets, or in the event of bankruptcy. In such an event, personal information may be one of the assets transferred.

What are My Privacy Rights in California?

Is My Information Secure?

We maintain reasonable and appropriate physical, electronic and procedural safeguards to protect your information. When you enter PII, we encrypt that information using secure socket layer technology (“SSL”).

While we do work very hard to protect your privacy, no method of security is 100% effective and Jabian will not be responsible for the actions of those who may gain unauthorized access to your PII. Jabian makes no warranties, express, implied or otherwise as to the ultimate effectiveness of these reasonable and appropriate safeguards.
