Information Collected from Visitors
Non-Personal Information received from Visitors – JFS Partners automatically collects non-personally identifiable information from Visitors such as the IP address of the Visitor’s computer, the type of web browser used by the Visitor, the number and frequency of Visitors, the pages visited within the JFS Partners website, as well as other information that does not specifically identify the Visitor, but may be used to identify the business entity to which the IP address is assigned.
Personal Information received from Visitors – Visitors may submit personally identifiable information in connection with certain activities or transactions. In cases where Visitors voluntarily respond to questions, submit comments, feedback or the like, JFS Partners treats such submissions as non-confidential and non-proprietary, and any information contained therein is treated as JFS Partners’ property. Accordingly, this information can be used for any purpose and such use neither requires compensation nor protection.
Information Collected from JFS Partners Clients
Except as indicated below, JFS Partners will not sell, give away, or rent its Client’s personal information to any company outside of JFS Partners.
JFS Partners collects necessary information in its delivery of services to its Clients. This may include information regarding technology, as well as the name, address, telephone number and e-mail address of account administrators. JFS Partners may also request federal tax ID information, order numbers as well as information regarding the individuals responsible for account administration for account security, verification or tax purposes. Other information including the class or type of service, technical characteristics, billing records and location of services may also be requested by JFS Partners. This type of information is more commonly known as Client Proprietary Network Information (“CPNI”). CPNI does not include subscriber information – client’s name, address and telephone number, none of which are subject to CPNI regulations.
Even though JFS Partners may use the foregoing information for service and account related matters, it may also use the collected information to seek client feedback, marketing and promotional purposes, statistical analysis and product development. Unless otherwise stated, client’s personal information will not be sold or shared with third parties.
JFS Partners uses the information it collects to process orders and provision and/or bill for JFS Partners services. This information may also be shared with third party vendors in order to provision and/or properly bill for orders. JFS Partners or a JFS Partners authorized agent may also use this client information to market and sell JFS Partners products and services. JFS Partners will not sell or trade a client’s personally identifiable information or CPNI unless JFS Partners is authorized by the client to do so or in compliance with applicable law. Clients may request that JFS Partners refrain from using personally identifiable information for marketing purposes by contacting JFS Partners or clicking on the “unsubscribe” link that we include on all commercial emails sent by JFS Partners. Be advised that this restriction will not eliminate all JFS Partners marketing contacts.
JFS Partners must disclose information when requested in order to comply with court rules, regulations, orders and subpoenas. JFS Partners will also share information in order to prevent the security, integrity and unlawful use of our services, to repair network outages and in emergency situations (e.g.: 911 calls). JFS Partners may monitor calls for Client Care purposes. Finally, JFS Partners reserves the right to sell or transfer all information in connection with the sale or transfer of its business so long as the receiving party agrees to preserve the confidentiality of the information provided.
Client’s name and number may also be transmitted and displayed on a Caller ID device unless Client has elected to block such information. Please note that Caller ID Blocking does not prevent the display of client’s number when you dial certain business numbers, 911, 900 numbers, or toll-free 800, 888, 877 or 866 numbers.
JFS Partners uses “cookies” which are small files that are stored on your computer and used to track certain information about your visit to our websites.

Unless unencrypted transmission is authorized, JFS Partners will use industry encryption methods to protect data transmission. Note that no security practice is foolproof and JFS Partners cannot guarantee the security of its systems or databases, nor will JFS Partners guarantee that information supplied by you will not be intercepted during transmission.
