JA Europe appreciate your interest in this Web site and other related or linked JA Europe sites (Site). Your privacy is important and we want you to understand our practices with respect to gathering information from visitors to the Site and with respect to the uses we make of that information. Please check each portion or page of the Site that you visit.
Information and Uses
When someone visits the Site, our web servers automatically gather information that allows the site to communicate with the visitor's computer during the visit. We also track such information as the number of visits to the site, which parts of the site visitors select, analytics to measure and observe user behavior, IP address (the Internet address assigned to your device from your Internet Service Provider), device type, domain type, browser type (e.g., Firefox, Chrome or Internet Explorer), date and time of day, device screen size. We use such information for purposes including helping us design and administer the Site.
Privacy concerns focus on Personal Information, that is, information that could identify a specific individual such as names, addresses, e-mail addresses, and telephone numbers. If during your visit you personalize the Site, complete an order form, enter a contest, provide survey feedback or submit other information to us, you may provide us with Personal Information. We may collect and use that Personal Information to process your survey feedback for the purpose of improving your experience at our branded sites, or to tell you about JA Europe programmes which we think may be of interest to you—including via email, to communicate with you for other purposes. We may also use that Personal Information as necessary to protect our rights and the rights of others, including by enforcing our Terms & Conditions, and for any other purpose disclosed to you at the time we collect your information or pursuant to your consent.
As explained below in the section on Dissemination of Information to Third Parties, we do not distribute or sell Personal Information to third parties for the purpose of allowing them to market their products and services to you; We will make a reasonable effort to remove your Personal Information from our database in such a way that you will not receive future communications from us, if that is your wish. If you notify us that Personal Information previously submitted to our site is no longer accurate, we will make a reasonable effort to make appropriate corrections. To facilitate our efforts to meet your request, it would be helpful if you could let us know the context in which you provided Personal Information, e.g. in connection with promotion of a specific product or service.
Information Placed on Your Computer
We may store some information (commonly known as a "cookie") on your computer when you look at or use the Site. This information facilitates customizing your use of the Site and helps to avoid the need for you to re-enter your details every time you visit it. You can erase or block this information from your computer if you want to. (The ‘help’ screen in your browser or computer user manual should tell you how to do this.)
Sharing Information with Third Parties
Communicating via the Internet and sending information to you by other means necessarily involves your Personal Information passing through or being handled by third-parties, but JA Europe does not sell or distribute your Personal Information to third parties for purposes of allowing them to market their products and services to you.
