Please read the following to learn more about what information we collect, what we do with that information, and how we may use your personal information.

Information Collection and Use

Some of JIC Design’s websites and services permit users, subject further to JIC Design’s online terms of use, to register for conferences, events or programs, submit business listings, request information, enter contests, vote in polls or otherwise express opinions or submit comments. As part of such use, you may be asked to register for a username and password and to provide certain personally identifying information such as name, address, phone number, email address, birth date, address information, postal code or ZIP code, gender, personal interests and credit card information for transactions. JIC Design uses your information to perform transactions, deliver services or information you have requested, and offer you products and services from JIC Design and our trusted partners, programs or services that we believe may be of interest to you. JIC Design also uses your information to contact you when necessary for customer service purposes. We may combine your information that we have with information we obtain from business partners or third parties to provide you with a better product or JIC Design experience. JIC Design may use information relating to your visit or use of our websites, or information you provide to us, for market research purposes in order to continually improve the product and services that JIC Design delivers to you.

If you choose to submit content for publication we may publish your username, organization and other information as provided by you or to personalize your user experience. If you register for a competitive event, your name, event entry identification, and interim and final event time results may be made publicly available on any JIC Design website.

You may choose not to submit certain personal information while on our websites, in such instances JIC Design may not be able to provide you with certain services.

Information disclosure to third parties

When you post information to the JIC Design sites, you are granting JIC Design permission to use and take other actions with respect to such information (as described in the located at http://www.jicdesign.com/terms-of-service.html), in order to provide JIC Design’s services. We do not share, sell, rent or otherwise distribute this information to others, except as disclosed in this Privacy Policy.

When JIC Design does share your information with our subsidiaries, affiliated companies and trusted businesses or persons, we require that these parties agree to process such information based on our direction and in compliance with appropriate confidentiality and security measures. JIC Design also displays targeted advertisements based on personal information. Third party advertisers (including ad-serving companies) may assume that people who interact with, view, or click targeted ads meet the targeting criteria. However, JIC Design does not provide any personal information to the advertiser when you interact with or view a targeted advertisement.

Except as otherwise described in this Privacy Policy, it is JIC Design’s policy not to distribute to third parties any personally identifying information about you without your consent (usually communicated through either an Òopt-outÓ or Òopt-inÓ notification or mechanism). Upon obtaining your consent, JIC Design may provide access to or otherwise disclose your personally identifying information to third parties. However, we may aggregate certain personally identifying information – meaning that the information from many JIC Design users is grouped together in a way that does not disclose the personal information of any particular user – without your consent.

If you are using our services to register for an event, program or to purchase a third party product, JIC Design shares the personal information you provide to applicable third party(ies) to fulfill your request. Each such party operates independently from JIC Design and maintains its own privacy and security policy. JIC Design bears no responsibility from the activities of any such third party to whom JIC Design provides information to process your request and you should contact those third parties directly regarding your preferences for the use of your personal information.
