PRIVACY STATEMENT

Because our site permits individuals to submit e-mail and resumes if they want to be considered for employment by JCA Associates, its parents, subsidiaries, affiliates, licensors, licensees, and existing or prospective clients, we have developed this Privacy Statement to inform site visitors of our policies and practices regarding such information.

At some places on the site, the use of a "cookie" is offered. Most browsers now recognize when a "cookie" is offered, and permits the user to opt out of receiving it. If you are not sure whether your browser has this capability, you should check with the software manufacturer or your Internet service provider. "Cookies" are used on the JCA-associates.com site to facilitate use of an area of the site. We do not use "cookies" to collect and distribute information to third parties for marketing purposes.

Visitors are able to send e-mail through this site, and their messages will contain their user's screen name and email address, as well as any additional information the user may wish to include in the message ("Contact Information"). Users retain the right to access Contact Information submitted by them. Opportunities to send e-mail through the site are not acts of solicitation of identifying information by JCA Associates; rather, e-mail options let individuals send comments and communications to us. These messages are forwarded through the site to the appropriate persons within JCA Associates to respond, at their discretion, to the questions or comments. Contact Information may be used to follow up on a visitor's interest for business-related purposes. These purposes include informing the user about JCA Associates services that may be of interest, or to contact the user as part of the process of business development.

Also, upon a user's request, JCA Associates will use commercially reasonable efforts to functionally delete the user and his or her Contact Information from its database; however, it may be impossible to delete a user's entry without some residual information because of backups and records of deletions.

CREDIT CARD TRANSACTIONS

For your protection, we have taken a number of steps to maximize the security of financial transactions that are accepted on the JCA Associates Web Site. Credit Card processing is accomplished using secure processing services. Your entry of credit card information is encrypted when transmitted in secure mode. If you are behind a firewall, the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) feature of your browser and the processing of the credit card may be blocked. In this case, you have the option of credit card processing without SSL by selecting the "Non-Secure" feature on the screen -- the choice is up to you.

If for any reason, you still feel uncomfortable submitting your credit card over the Internet, you can mail your form to us.


USING ENCRYPTION

In certain transactions you are given the option of running in a secure (SSL) mode or unsecure mode. In cases where a firewall is causing a situation that cannot be corrected, the use of the unsecure mode is given. The unsecure mode is used by you at your own risk.

In addition, there are constantly changing restrictions in the use of encryption software and schemes that are used in various countries. The use of appropriate software and encryption options are your responsibility, and the JCA Associates assumes no risk or liability in ensuring your compliance to local law.

REGARDLESS OF THE PRECAUTIONS TAKEN BY YOU OR BY JCA ASSOCIATES, "PERFECT SECURITY" DOES NOT EXIST ON THE INTERNET. EJOBRESOURCE CANNOT ENSURE OR WARRANT THE SECURITY OF ANY INFORMATION YOU TRANSMIT TO THIS SITE, AND YOU TRANSMIT SUCH INFORMATION AT YOUR OWN RISK.

Information We Collect From You, How We Use the Information and Opt-out Choices There are a number of areas in the JCA Associates Web Site where we ask for and collect information about you, including personally identifiable information. Where we do, it is in order to serve you better, or is necessary to accomplish the service you are requesting. Examples include membership information (which may include name, address, email, telephone number and educational and professional experience information), security identifiers, shipping information, and product purchase information stored in online shopping carts.

Information provided to this Site is processed and stored on computers in various countries, including the United States. Membership information is used both in the JCA Associates mailing lists (which also includes lists provided to technical and geographical units of the JCA Associates (for example, societies and sections)) and in the JCA Associates Membership Directory.

From time to time, to better serve our members and to supplement member dues, the JCA Associates mailing list, in part or as a whole, is released to other engineering and carefully selected third party organizations to provide you with information on technical products and services related to your profession, or that we otherwise believe is useful to our members. In addition, the mailing lists may be used in connection with informing you about JCA Associates services, products, conferences, meetings and events. You may instruct us to not share information about you in the JCA Associates mailing lists with third parties by indicating this preference on your membership application when you join the JCA Associates, on your renewal form when you renew your membership, or by sending an email to us and including your name and JCA Associates member number for identification purposes. Your choice to opt-out of third party mailings is effective until the next annual renewal date and you must select the mailing lists opt-out option on your renewal form to keep the opt-out in effect.
