Privacy Policy

This Privacy Policy explains the collection, use, and disclosure of “personal information” by jakesgeneralstore.com through the website that jakesgeneralstore.com operates at http://www.jakesgeneralstore.com (”Websites”). As used in this policy, “personal information’ means information that would allow a party to identify you, such as, for example, your name, address, telephone number or email address.

Personal information we collect: We collect personal information at four places on our Websites: (1) when you provide us with your personal information such as by sending an email to us or signing up to receive a newsletter; (2) when you create a username (user account); and, (3) when you donate money to us or purchase merchandise via our online store (http://www.jakesgeneralstore.com/?q=product).

What we do with the personal information we collect We use the personal information you provide to us when you send us emails or sign up to receive our newsletter in order to respond to your request, for example, to reply to your email or to send you communications about news and events related to jakesgeneralstore.com.

When you donate money to us or purchase merchandise via our product page, your personal information will be handled in one of three ways, depending on which option you choose.

If you purchase merchandise directly from jakesgeneralstore.com, we will use your personal information for the purpose of sending you the items you purchased.

You may donate money to jakesgeneralstore.com via PayPal (in which case your personal information is sent to, handled by and stored by PayPal (https://www.paypal.com/) in accordance with its Terms of Use and Privacy Policy) or directly to jakesgeneralstore.com. When you donate money to jakesgeneralstore.com directly, we use your personal information to process your donation.

Regardless of the method by which you donate to jakesgeneralstore.com or purchase merchandise, we additionally use the personal information you provide for the purpose of contacting you about upcoming news and events relevant to jakesgeneralstore.com. When we contact you for the first time after your purchase, we will give you the option to choose not to be contacted in this manner again.

Non-personal browsing and site usage information that we collect: When you use the Websites, our servers (which may be hosted by a third party service provider) may collect information indirectly and automatically (through, for example, the use of your “IP address”) about your activities while visiting the Websites, including the web pages you view and the times you view them and information about the browser you are using. We do not link browsing information to the personal information you submit to us; we use this browsing information for internal purposes such as to help understand how the Websites are being used and to improve it, and for systems administration purposes. An IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer when you use the Internet. In some cases your IP address stays the same from browser session to browser session; but if you use a consumer Internet access provider, your IP address probably varies from session to session.

The disclosures we may make of personal information: In general, it is not jakesgeneralstore.com’ practice to disclose personal information to third parties. We may share personal information in two instances.

Firstly, jakesgeneralstore.com may share personal information with our contractors and service providers in order to maintain, enhance, or add to the functionality of the Websites. Secondly, we may share personal information with third parties such as the government or other entities when required to by law or as required by court order.

The security of personal information collected via the Websites: jakesgeneralstore.com has implemented reasonable measures to protect against unauthorized access to and unlawful interception or processing of personal information that jakesgeneralstore.com stores and controls. However, no website can fully eliminate security risks. Third parties may circumvent our security measures to unlawfully intercept or access transmissions or private communications. We will post a reasonably prominent notice to the Websites if any such security breach occurs.

Questions? If you have questions about this Privacy Policy, please contact us.

We hope this policy clarifies our procedures regarding your personal information. jakesgeneralstore.com may revise this policy at any time by updating this posting.
