Information We Collect

If you order a product, access special features on this Website, complete a form, submit an application for JA membership, or register to receive materials from JA at a JA event or on this Website (collectively, “Participation in JA”), we may request certain personally identifiable information from you. This personally identifiable information may include, but is not limited to, your name, physical and/or electronic mailing address, phone number, and jewelry preferences (collectively, “PII”). JA Participation is completely voluntary, and you, therefore, have a choice whether to disclose your PII.

We use your PII for our activities including: to provide you services, to personalize information that we provide to you, to send you communications, and for our other marketing and everyday business purposes such as joint marketing or collaborations with affiliates and other third-parties as described herein.

How We Use the Information We Collect

If you are a JA Member, we may contact you from time to time at the email, phone, fax, or mailing address on file with JA regarding issues such as JA Member benefits, events, or your JA membership account. JA also provides basic contact information for JA Members to other JA Members and the public through our directories.

We use the credit/debit card information that you provide when placing an order on products or services only to handle and complete that order. We do not share this credit/debit card information with third-parties except as necessary to handle and complete your order. We do not retain this credit/debit card information in JA’s files.

How We Share the Information We Collect

In our ongoing effort to offer JA Members an array of exceptional services and benefits, and to enhance the opportunities available to JA and JA Members, JA works with JA Supplier Members and establishes strategic partnerships with third-party organizations (“Strategic Partners”).

JA may share your PII, not including your credit/debit card information, with one or more JA Supplier Members or Strategic Partners. JA may also provide your PII to third party companies that JA has engaged to provide us with services, such as membership management and customer service. We are not responsible for the privacy policies, privacy practices, or the content of any website of our JA Supplier Members, Strategic Partners, or other third-party companies.

We may send communications to you on behalf of JA Supplier Members or Strategic Partners. The purpose of the communication and information sharing would be to introduce you to the products or services offered by these JA Supplier Members or Strategic Partners. You may opt out from these communications at any time. Opting out of JA Supplier Member or Strategic Partner communications will not have a bearing on future communications sent to you from JA related to other matters.

Our Commitment to Data Security

To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the correct use of information, we have put in place appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information that we collect online.

JA follows generally accepted industry standards to protect the PII that you submit to JA, both during transmission and once JA receives it. However, no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. Therefore, while we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your PII, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.
