5.  Do we use Cookies?

Yes. We may use Cookies to improve your experience with the website. Cookies are small files a site or its provider transfers to your computer’s hard drive through its web browser (if you allow) that enables the site or its service provider to recognize your browser and capture and remember certain information. They are used to help us understand your preferences which allows us to provide you with improved services. We also use Cookies to help us compile aggregate data about site traffic and interaction so we can offer better site experiences in the future.

You can choose to have your computer or other device warn you each time a Cookie is being sent, or you can turn off all Cookies. You do this through your browser’s settings. If you turn Cookies off, some of the features that make your site experience more efficient may not function properly.

Clear GIFs are tiny graphics with a unique identifier and serve a function similar to Cookies, but in contrast, they are stored on your computer’s hard drive and embed invisibly on web or mobile application pages. We may use Clear GIFs in connection with our Site and App to, among other things, track the activities of users and visitors, help us manage content, and compile statistics about usage of our Site and Apps.

6.  Third party disclosures

We do not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer to outside parties your Personal Information unless the following conditions apply:

a.  Transfers or releases to website hosting partners who assist us in running our website, conducting our business, or serving our users, so long as those parties agree to keep information confidential,

b.  Such releases necessary and appropriate to meet law, regulation, legal process, or enforceable governmental or judicial requests,

c.  To prevent, detect, or address fraud or breach in security,

d.  To protect against harm to the rights, property, or safety of our users or the public as required or permitted by law,

e.  Releases of Personal Information may be included in sale, merger, acquisition, or other transactions involving the sale of some or all of our assets. (Should this occur, we will use reasonable means to notify you.),

f.  Shared with business partners whom we have a relationship with, advertisers, or connected sites, and

g.  Any release authorized with your consent.

Non-Personally Identifiable visitor information may be provided to other parties for marketing, advertising, or other uses.

We also may disclose the information we collect from you in order to comply with the law, a judicial proceeding, or other legal process, such as in response to a court order or subpoena. Further, we may disclose the information we collect from you where we believe it is necessary to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding illegal activities, suspected fraud, situations involving potential threats to the safety of any person, violations of our Terms of Use or this Policy, or where it is deemed reasonably necessary as evidence in litigation in which J. P. King is involved.

7.  Third party links

Occasionally, at our discretion, we may include or offer third-party products or services on our site. These third party sites have separate and independent privacy policies. We therefore have no responsibility or liability for the content and activities of these linked sites. Nonetheless, we seek to protect the integrity of our site and welcome feedback on these sites.

8.  Advertising Networks

We use network advertisers to serve advertisements on unaffiliated websites or other media such as social networking platforms. This enables us to target advertisements to you for products and services in which you may be interested. Ad network providers, advertisers, sponsors, and/or traffic measurement services may use Cookies, JavaScript, web beacons, Flash LSOs, and other tracking technologies to measure the effectiveness of their ads and personalize advertising content to you. These Cookies and the like are governed by each entity’s specific privacy policy, not this one. We may provide these advertisers with information, including personal information about you.

Users in the United States may opt out of many ad networks. For example, you may go to the Digital Advertising Alliance (DAA) Consumer Choice Page for more information about opting out of interest based advertising and their choices regarding having information used by DAA Companies. Opting out from one or more of the companies listed on the DAA page, but that does not mean you will no longer receive any advertising through our Site on other websites.

9.  California Online Privacy Protection Act (CalOPPA)

CalOPPA requires commercial websites and online services to post a privacy policy. The law’s reach stretches well beyond Ca. to require any person or company in the US (and conceivably the world) that operates websites collecting Personal Information from Ca. consumers to post a conspicuous privacy policy on its website stating the information being collected and with whom it is being shared.

10.  Children Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA)

When it comes to the collection of Personal Information from children under the age of 13 years, COPPA puts parents in control. The FTC, United States’ consumer protection agency, enforces COPPA which spells out what operators of sites and online services must do to protect children’s privacy and safety online. We do not market to children. We will not knowingly collect information from children. We will not knowingly allow children to participate in competitions for cash prizes.

11.  Fair Information Practices

The Fair Information Practices Principles form the backbone of privacy law in the United States and the concepts they include have played a significant role in the development of data protection laws around the globe. Our site and services are located in the United States. If you are outside the United States, your information will be processed and stored in the United States and you are consenting to such processing and storage. In the event of a data breach, we will notify the affected users within a reasonable period of time from when the breach is discovered or identified.

12.  CAN SPAM Act

The CAN SPAM Act is a law that governs commercial email, establishes requirements for commercial messages, gives recipients the right to have emails stopped from being sent to them, and spells out penalties for violations. We collect your email address to send information, respond to inquiries or requests, and deliver marketing materials. To be in accordance with CAN SPAM, we agree to the following:

a.  Not use false or misleading subjects,

b.  Identify the message as an advertisement in a reasonable way,

c.  Include the physical address of our business or headquarters,

d.  Monitor third-party email marketing services for compliance if one is used,

e.  Honor opt-out and/or unsubscribe requests, and

f.  Allow users to unsubscribe.

If at any time you would like to unsubscribe from future email lists, you may contact us through the information below and you will promptly be removed from ALL correspondence.
