|SJF.com Privacy & Security Notice|
SJF.com has created this privacy statement in order to demonstrate our firm commitment to privacy. The
following discloses our information gathering and dissemination practices for this website: SJF.com.
Security at SJF.com
The SJF.com Safe Shopping Guarantee
We guarantee that every transaction you make at SJF.com will be 100% safe. This means if unauthorized
charges are made to your card as a result of shopping at SJF.com, SJF will cover any unauthorized
charges incurred while purchasing at SJF.com. See guarantee details below.
1. Under the Fair Credit Billing Act, your bank cannot hold you liable for more than $50.00 of fraudulent
charges. If your bank does hold you liable for any of this $50.00, SJF.com will cover the entire liability for
you, up to the full $50.00. SJF.com will cover this liability only if the unauthorized use of your credit card
resulted through no fault of your own from purchases made at SJF.com while using the secure server.
2. In the event of unauthorized use of your credit card, you must notify your credit card provider in
accordance with its reporting rules and procedures.
How Secure Is My Information?
We use state-of-the-art Secure Socket Layer (SSL) encryption technology to protect your personal information.
The only time you are required to sign on our site is when you are making a purchase or reviewing your online
account. On the Checkout page, you will be asked to access your existing account or create a new one. Existing
account holders are prompted for their ID (your email address) and password. This password is for your
protection. If you don't have your password, there is a link to have your password emailed to you. Follow the
instructions given to retrieve your password.
In addition to using state-of-the-art encryption technology, we use the security features of your web browser to
encrypt your credit card information when you submit it to us.
A browser in secure mode will display a URL address beginning "https://" rather than the standard "http://".
The "s" stands for "secure." In Netscape NavigatorTM (versions 3.0 and earlier), the broken key symbol in the
lower left corner of your browser window will become a solid key in secure mode. If you're using Netscape
Communicator 4.0TM or higher, look for the padlock in the same space: it's open in standard mode and closed
in secure mode. In Microsoft Internet ExplorerTM, you'll see a padlock symbol at the bottom of your browser
window when the browser is in secure mode.
As an extra security measure, SJF.com reveals only the last four digits of your credit card numbers when
confirming an order. Of course, we transmit the entire credit card number to the appropriate credit card
company during order processing. It is also important for you to protect against unauthorized access to
your password and to your computer.
Only employees who require personal information to best serve our customers have access to your personal
data. To ensure only necessary access, this data is password protected. All of our employees with access to
this data are trained on our security policy and practices when they are hired. Periodically, these employees
are given a refresher course to ensure security of this data. Our site is reviewed every two years for security.
HackerSafe Security Seal
Privacy at SJF.com
When submitting information in forms that are not guaranteed secure, you can potentially run the risk of
having your data compromised. That's why SJF has teamed up with HACKER SAFE, the world's leading
security certification mark to bring our customers outstanding security when submitting information to us
via our website.
[The following is taken from the HackerSafe Website]
The HACKER SAFE® certification mark is displayed on over 80,000 web sites worldwide. HACKER SAFE
certified sites include some of the largest brands in retail ecommerce; as well as banks, universities,
Fortune 500 corporations, state, county and city governments, and non-profit institutions.
HACKER SAFE's security auditing technology allows the HACKER SAFE mark to appear only when a web
site's current security status meets the highest published government standards.
The information we gather from our customers helps us personalize and continually improve your shopping
experience. The following are some examples of the information we collect.
Information Retreived from your Browser:
SJF.com, like almost all e-commerce sites today, uses "cookies" to create a more effective and convenient
site experience. A cookie is a piece of data stored on the user's hard drive containing information about the
user for a particular website. We do not store any sensitive information in the cookie. The majority of the
cookie's content is used to track the customer's movement through the website. In the future, we may use
cookies to store your name. This would be used to personally greet you when you return to the website as
well as to take advantage of new services and technologies incorporated into future versions of this website.
What Exactly Are Cookies?
Cookies are alphanumeric identifiers that we transfer to your computer's hard drive through your Web browser
to enable our server to recognize your browser. Again, they contain no specific identifying information and are
only used to track your movement and personalize your website experience. The "help" portion of the toolbar
on your browser will tell you how to disable cookies, or how to be notified of incoming cookies. However,
cookies allow you to take full advantage of SJF.com, and we recommend that you leave them turned on.
We receive and store any information you enter on our website or any information given to us in any other
way. You can choose not to provide certain information, but then you might not be able to take advantage
of some of the site's key features. We use the information that you provide for such purposes as responding
to your requests, customizing future shopping for you, improving our website, and communicating with you.
We archive all emails submitted to us. We use your return email address to reference you in our customer
database, as well as to be able to contact you in the future. If you would like to receive monthly updates
from SJF, you are welcomed to join our email list "The Industry Insider."
Do we share or sell our information?
NO - WE HATE SPAM AS MUCH AS YOU DO!
At SJF.com, we realize that this is a sensitive area for many of our customers, and we would like to stress that
WE DO NOT GIVE OUT ANY INFORMATION unless it falls under one of the categories below.
Agents: We employ other companies and individuals to perform functions on our behalf. Examples
include fulfilling and shipping orders. They have access to personal information needed to perform
their functions, but may not use it for other purposes.
Business Transfers: As we continue to develop our business, we might sell or buy stores or assets.
In such transactions, customer information usually is one of the transferred business assets. Also,
in the unlikely event that SJF, or substantially all of its assets are acquired, customer information will
of course be one of the transferred assets.
Protection of SJF and Others: We release account and other personal information when we believe
release is appropriate to comply with law; or protect the rights, property, or safety of SJF.com, our
users, or others. This includes exchanging information with other companies and organizations for
fraud protection and credit risk reduction.
With Your Consent: Other than as set out above, you will receive notice when information about
you might go to third parties, and you will have an opportunity to choose not to share the information.
What Information Can I Access?
SJF gives you access to the information about you for the limited purpose of viewing and, in certain cases,
updating that information. This information includes any information you provided to us upon site registration.
What Choices Do I Have?
As discussed above, you can always choose not to provide information, even though it might be needed to make a
purchase or to take advantage of some of our website features. 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.
