Jamaicans.com, and its advertisers and affiliates are deeply committed to protecting the privacy of Internet users. Below is information outlining our continued support for the responsible management of consumer information.
Our computer is not set up to track, collect or distribute personal information about its visitors. It does recognize the home server of visitors, but not e-mail addresses. For example, we can tell which Internet Service Provider our visitors use, but not the names, addresses or other information about our visitors that would allow us to identify the particular visitors to our sites. This information is used only for internal purposes by Jamaicans.com staff.
In addition, our web sites track information about the visits to our web sites. For example, we compile statistics that show the daily number of visitors to our sites, the daily requests we receive for particular files on our web sites, and what countries those requests come from. These aggregated statistics are used to better provide services to the public and may also be provided to others, but again, the statistics contain no personal information and cannot be used to gather such information.
Data Collection and Opt Out
Also, if you indicate on our site that you would like to subscribe to a monthly newsletter, your personal information will only be added to the appropriate mailing list requested. In addition, if at any time you change your mind and would like to be removed from any of our mailing lists for which you subscribed, or if you need to correct your personal information, we have provided these options at the bottom of our newsletters sent to you
No Release of Information to Third Parties
Personal information will not be released to third parties except to further the purpose for which you had provided the information, such as making specific legal requests for information , or if you request that your email be forwarded. There are no other circumstances under which we will provide or sell personal information to third parties.
Jamaicans.com works with a third party that serves ads to this site.
