We may also use information in our records to protect our customers, employees or property - for instance, to investigate fraud, harassment or other types of unlawful service activities involving JJ's Handbags or other contractors that we do business with. In some cases, it may be necessary to provide this information to the government or third parties who make a lawful demand for it.
We share information within our company to enable us to better understand our customers' product and service needs, and to learn how to best design, develop, and package products and services to meet those needs. Currently, our primary lines of business include wholesale only sales of handbags, watches, and other accessories
Accuracy of the Information We Hold
We want the information we obtain and use about customers to be accurate. If your service information or your personal contact information changes or you see an inaccuracy on your JJ's Handbags bill, let us know so we can correct it.
Security and Accountability
We have information systems that collect and store customer information in addition to systems that store our own business records. These systems have different types of security as appropriate for the information stored. JJ's Handbags requires employees to keep customer information confidential and we hold them accountable for their actions.
Disclosure of Information Outside JJ's Handbags
As a general rule, JJ's Handbags does not release customer account information to unaffiliated third parties without your permission unless we have a business relationship with those companies where the disclosure is appropriate. For example, we may hire outside companies as contractors or agents; or we might be engaged in a joint venture or partnership with a company. Upon occasion, JJ's Handbags may decide to stop providing a service or may decide to sell or transfer parts of our business to unaffiliated companies. When this happens, we may provide confidential customer information to these companies so that they can offer you the same or similar services. In all of these situations, we provide information to these other companies only as needed to accomplish our business objectives and the companies are bound by requirements to keep JJ's Handbags customers' information confidential.
There are exceptions to the general rule. For example, we might provide information to regulatory or administrative agencies so that they can accomplish their regulatory tasks (for example, responding to a customer complaint) or to maximize the efficiencies of our own processes (such as getting mailing addresses correct, for example). Other disclosures will be driven by legal requirements imposed on JJ's Handbags. JJ\'s Handbags complies with "legal process," such as a subpoena or court order or other similar demand, associated with either criminal or civil proceedings.
Disclosure of Account Information
If you tell us in writing to release your account information to someone, we will honor your request and provide that information.
Your account information is released to other companies when you give us your permission or when they advise us they have your approval to access the information. This most often occurs with respect to a sale of service they want to make or have made to you. Unless we are advised that permission from you has been granted, we do not release the information.
We may provide account information to collection agencies when customers do not pay their bills. We restrict the use that can be made of this information to collection activities only for our charges and for the charges we bill for others.
Your Control Over the Disclosure of Information
JJ's Handbags may provide you with information about new products and services or special promotions. However, JJ's Handbags does maintain an internal "Do Not Call" list in line with federal law. If you ask not to be contacted, we will put your telephone number on a list. JJ's Handbags will still be able to call you unless you make it clear that you do not want to be contacted by JJ's Handbags for any reason. Some states have adopted their own "Do Not Call" laws, which are usually managed by a third party database administer. Often those laws permit continued contact with persons whose numbers are on the list when there is an existing business relationship, so you might get a call from us even if you are on these kinds of lists.
It is JJ's Handbags\'s practice to stop sending direct mail materials to individuals that request it not be sent. There are no laws that control this accommodation but we respect the desire of individuals to be free of such communications if they wish.
JJ's Handbags or its business partners may use e-mail to communicate with customers about events or new products and services or to respond to visitor's e-mails. You may visit our JJ's Handbags.com web site, E-mail Contact Preferences page to add or remove yourself from our email list. If you receive unwanted email from us you may also remove yourself from our email list by simply following the "unsubscribe" instructions in the email. We will not send commercial solicitations to customers who request it not be sent. Please note that if you do go through this process, some e-mail messages may still come to you, although not those dealing with commercial solicitations. For example, we may e-mail you about viruses, or changes to your service, or other types of product advisories.
We honor customer requests to have their names removed from lists that JJ's Handbags might provide to firms desiring to do product promotions. If you do not wish to have your name included on such lists, just tell us and we will remove your name at no charge.
Privacy Over the Internet
JJ's Handbags appreciates that some individuals believe that special privacy concerns arise around information transmitted or collected over the Internet or through web sites. Below we describe our practices to address those concerns.
Cookies: Some of JJ's Handbag's Web sites may use "cookies" to improve our level of service and speed up the delivery of information to our visitors. Cookies are lines of text that are transmitted to your Web browser when you click on a site. They provide a way for a server to recall a previous request or previous registration, or to keep track of a transaction as it progresses, so that information does not have to be repeated. Your browser stores the information on your hard drive and when you return to that site later, the cookie is transmitted back only to the servers that originally sent it to you. To be notified when you are about to receive a cookie you can configure your browser to alert you when a site is attempting to send you a cookie and at that time you will have the option of refusing the cookie. You can check your hard drive for cookie files in a cookies folder for Internet Explorer, a cookies.txt file for Netscape, and under magic cookies on a Macintosh.
Advertisers that serve ads on our Web sites may also use their own cookies. These cookies collect their own information independent of JJ's Handbags. You can disable this cookie capability as described above.
How online information JJ's Handbags collects is used: Generic Information -- To gauge the effectiveness of our Web sites, we do collect some non-individually-identifiable generic information about our visitors. Our Web servers automatically recognize a visitor's Internet service provider, the IP address, the domain name, the type of browser, and the operating system. And, also which pages are viewed on our sites, the Web page you were on when you link to our sites, how much time a visitor spends on each page and other information related to the operation and interaction of JJ's Handbags Web sites. This information does not reveal a visitor's identity. We aggregate this information and use it to evaluate and improve our Web sites.
Identifiable Information -- You can choose to provide individually-identifiable information to JJ's Handbags in a number of ways through our Web sites - by ordering a service from us, sending us email, registering to receive news or information, applying for a job, or entering a contest. When visitors supply information about themselves for a specific purpose, JJ's Handbags uses the information for that purpose (such as to provide the information the visitor has requested or to consider a visitor for a particular job). In addition, when visitors use our Web sites to order services, or to request information about our services, we may use the individually-identifiable information as we would use the same information obtained off-line - for example, to evaluate your service needs and contact you regarding additional services you may find useful.
A user may choose to provide us individually-identifiable information to customize a personal home page. We use this information to better understand and serve our customers, but we do not share that information outside of JJ's Handbags. This information may be compiled on an aggregated basis and shared with our advertisers or business partners but the user will be anonymous.
We treat information we collect on line similarly to that we collect off-line. We do not sell or disclose individually-identifiable information obtained on-line to non JJ's Handbags entities except as described above (when JJ's Handbags is in a business relationship with an unaffiliated party and then under confidentiality restrictions) unless you specifically authorize it, it is required by law (including the service of subpoenas or court orders in either civil or criminal lawsuits), or disclosure is necessary to protect the safety of customers, employees or property.
The JJ's Handbags Web sites may contain links to other sites. We are not responsible for the content or privacy practices employed by other sites. Other Web sites may have different privacy policies or no policy. Users should review the privacy policies of any Web site before providing personal information.
E-Mail Communications: JJ's Handbags or its business partners may use email to communicate with customers about events or new products and services or to respond to visitors' emails. JJ's Handbags will not send commercial solicitations via email to customers who request it not be sent through the process outlined earlier.
Children: JJ's Handbags does not currently target its online services to children under 13 years of age; and JJ's Handbags has no intention of collecting any information from children under 13 years old. However, some of our sites may contain links to content providers that collect such information. These companies are expected to comply with all laws pertaining to the collection of information from children. Because the Internet offers open access to a wide range of information, it is important that parents supervise and prevent access to inappropriate content, email or chat sessions.
