You may refuse to accept browser cookies by activating the appropriate setting on your browser. However, if you select this setting you may be unable to access certain parts of our Website. Unless you have adjusted your browser setting so that it will refuse cookies, our system will issue cookies when you direct your browser to our Website.

Disclosure of Your Information

We may disclose aggregated information about our users, and information that does not identify any individual, without restriction.  We routinely share personal information with:

  • Our affiliates, including companies within The Jacobson Group.
  • Contractors, service providers, and other third parties we use to support our business and who are bound by contractual obligations to keep personal information confidential and use it only for the purposes for which we disclose it to them.

We may disclose and exchange information with law enforcement agencies and regulatory bodies to comply with our legal and regulatory obligations and/or if we believe disclosure is necessary or appropriate to protect the rights, property, or safety of The Jacobson Group, our customers, or others.

We may also need to share some personal information with other parties, such as potential buyers of some or all of our business or during a re-structuring. We will typically anonymize information, but this may not always be possible. The recipient of the information will be bound by confidentiality obligations.

Data Retention

We retain personal information we collect from you where we have an ongoing business need to do so (for example, to provide you with the service you have requested or to comply with applicable legal requirements).

When we have no ongoing business need to process your personal information, we will either delete or anonymize it or, if this is not possible (for example, because your personal information has been stored in backup archives), then we will securely store your personal information and isolate it from any further processing until deletion is possible.

Your Privacy Rights and Choices

With respect to your right to access and control your information, we comply with applicable data protection laws and regulations. We will process your rights requests in compliance with applicable data protection laws and regulations. The availability of these rights and the ways in which you may exercise them are set out below.

California Consumer Rights

For individuals located in California, you are given rights under the California Consumer Privacy Act (the “CCPA”) about your personal information. You have the following rights:

  • Right to be Informed about Collection, Sale, or Disclosure: You have the right to be informed of the categories of personal information we collect about you as well as the sources from which personal information was collected. You also have the right to be informed of the business or commercial purposes for which we use or disclose, or sell your personal information as well as the categories of third parties with whom we share it.

  • Right Not to Be Discriminated Against for Exercising These Rights: You have the right to be free of discrimination for exercising your consumer privacy rights. We will not deny you services, charge different amounts or provide a different quality level of services for exercising your rights unless the difference is reasonably related to the value of your data.

We will respect individual rights requests under those laws.

We limit access to your personal information to those who have a genuine business need to access it. Those processing your information will do so only in an authorized manner and are subject to a duty of confidentiality. We also have procedures in place to deal with any suspected data security breach. We will notify you and any applicable regulator of a suspected data security breach where we are legally required to do so.
