j-Grab.Inc knows that you care how information about you is used and shared, and we appreciate your trust that we will do so carefully and sensibly.
The information we learn from customers helps us personalize and continually improve your communication experience at j-Grab.com.
Here are the types of information we gather.
[Information You Give Us]
We receive and store any information you enter on our Web site or give us in any other way.
We use the information that you provide for such purposes as responding to your requests and improving our services and communicating with you.
You provide most such information when you search, buy, post, participate in j-Grab social community, or communicate with customer service.
For example, you provide information when you search for a product; place an order through j-Grab.com or one of our shippers; provide information in your ID (and you might have more than one if you have used more than one e-mail address when using with us) or your profile; communicate with us by e-mail, or otherwise; compile your friends list; participate in j-Grab social community; provide and rate Reviews; specify a Special Occasion Reminder; share information with j-Grab; and employ other Personal Notification Services, such as Available to Order Notifications.
As a result of those actions, you might supply us with such information as your name and address; people to whom purchases have been shipped, including addresses; e-mail addresses of j-Grab; content of reviews and e-mails to us; personal description and photograph in your Profile.
Examples of the information we collect and analyze include the Internet protocol (IP) address used to connect your computer to the Internet; login; e-mail address; password; computer and connection information such as browser type, version, and time zone setting, browser plug-in types and versions, operating system, and platform; purchase history, which we sometimes aggregate with similar information from other customers to create features such as "Best Sellers"; the full Uniform Resource Locator (URL) clickstream to, through, and from our Web site, including date and time; cookie number; products you viewed or searched for.
We may also use browser data such as cookies, Flash cookies (also known as Flash Local Shared Objects), or similar data on certain parts of our Web site for fraud prevention and other purposes.
To help us make e-mails more useful and interesting, we often receive a confirmation when you open e-mail from j-Grab.com if your computer supports such capabilities.
We do in an effort to avoid sending unnecessary messages to our customers.
If you do not want to receive e-mail or other mail from us, please adjust your Customer Communication Preferences.
Cookies are alphanumeric identifiers that we transfer to your computer's hard drive through your Web browser to enable our systems to recognize your browser.
The Help portion of the toolbar on most browsers will tell you how to prevent your browser from accepting new cookies, how to have the browser notify you when you receive a new cookie, or how to disable cookies altogether.
Additionally, you can disable or delete similar data used by browser add-ons, such as Flash cookies, by changing the add-on's settings or visiting the Web site of its manufacturer.
For instance, if you block or otherwise reject our cookies, you will not be able to proceed to Checkout, or use any j-Grab.com products services that require you to Sign in.
We work to protect the security of your information during transmission by using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) software, which encrypts information you input.
It is important for you to protect against unauthorized access to your password and to your computer.
Be sure to sign off when finished using a shared computer.
