We do not collect, nor do We request or require that You provide any sensitive personal information (e.g., social security number, driver’s license number, state identification card, passport number, information related to racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religious, philosophical, or other beliefs, information related to sex life or sexual orientation, health data, biometric or genetic characteristics, criminal convictions and offenses, trade union membership, or specific geolocation), and You should not send Us and should not disclose to Us any sensitive personal information on or through the Website or otherwise.
At times, We may aggregate certain personal information and/or non-personal information in a manner that does not identify You to determine information about Our customers, including product trends, sales histories, and where Our customers are located. We may also combine personal information with non-personal information. If We do so, We will treat such combined information as personal information.
Because non-personal information does not identify You individually, We may collect, use, and disclose non-personal information for any lawful purpose in Our sole discretion.
Jones Stephens, its authorized service providers, and certain authorized third parties use digital tracking tools such as cookies and similar technology when You use the Website (e.g., cookies, web beacons and single-pixel GIF files). Cookies are small files that are transferred to Your device’s hard drive through Your internet browser that enables the Website’s or authorized service providers’ or third parties’ systems to recognize Your browser and capture and remember certain information. This helps Us to improve Your access to Our Website and Your Website experience, identify repeat visitors, help ensure the authenticity of registered users, provide the mechanism for online shopping, and enable Website traffic monitoring.

If You have opted-in to receive direct marketing messages, promotional materials or newsletters from Us, You may unsubscribe from these communications at any time by following the instructions contained in the emails You receive or by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Note, however, that even if You opt-out of receiving direct marketing messages, promotional materials or newsletters We may still contact You about a purchase or order or in connection with other customer service activities.
Some browsers have a “Do Not Track” feature that lets You tell websites that You do not want to have Your online activities tracked. There is currently no uniform browser signal for this feature and no industry standard on how to respond to these signals. Therefore enabling/disabling the Do Not Track feature in Your browser does not ensure that all websites You visit will respond to the request.
Jones Stephens does not recognize or respond to Do Not Track signals at this time. We will reassess Our approach to responding to Do Not Track signals once an industry standard is established.
If You are a resident of California, You have the following rights:
To exercise any of these rights (other than non-discrimination), You may contact Us by email at email@example.com or call (833) 865-0355. You may also designate an authorized agent to complete a DSAR request on Your behalf. If You use an authorized agent to submit a request, We will not act on that request unless We are able to authenticate, with commercially reasonable effort, both your identity and the authorized agent’s authority to act on your behalf.
Once You submit a completed DSAR request, the consumer is sent an email that requires clicking on a link to verify the email address. This two factor validation helps protect against fraudulent submissions. Please note that a DSAR request is not processed until You have authenticated Your request by verifying the email address submitted.
There may be certain circumstances when We may not completely fulfill Your request, as permitted under the applicable California statute and regulations. For example, in connection with a Request to Delete, We may need to retain certain information to complete a transaction, detect fraud, or comply with a legal obligation.
With limited exceptions, You may only make a verifiable consumer Request to Know your personal information twice within a 12-month period.
If You would like to opt-out of the sale or sharing of Your personal information by Jones Stephens with third parties, You can click on the link entitled Do Not Sell or Share My Personal Information or You may contact Us by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or call (833) 865-0355. The fully verified and processed opt-out preference will be implemented by Jones Stephens for the specific consumer account You have identified in the DSAR request.

The security of Your personal information is very important to Us. We follow generally accepted industry standards to protect the personal information submitted to Us, and that We collect, both during transmission and once We receive it. However, no method of data collection, transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure.
