Joy Publications is committed to protecting user privacy and using our technology in the safest way. We understand that all users of our web site are quite rightly concerned to know that their data will not be used for any purpose unintended by them, and will not accidentally fall into the hands of a third party. Our policy is both specific and strict. It complies with the United States law [and with the laws of all jurisdictions of which we are aware]. If you think our policy falls short of your expectations or that we are failing to abide by our policy, do please tell us.
We regret that if there are one or more points below with which you are not happy, your only recourse is to please leave our web site. Except as set out below, we do not share, or sell, or disclose to a third party, any personally identifiable information collected at this site.
The first thing to remember about privacy is that there is only so much information that any website can collect without your answering of specific questions. For example, in order to post any content on the Joy Publications Website, you must first register. During the registration process you are required to provide certain personally identifiable information, such as your e-mail address.
Any content (comments and reviews) you post on the Joy Publications Website becomes public. By submitting any comments and reviews, this information may be collected and used by others. User Content may be also used by Joy Publications as described in our Terms of Service. We are not responsible for any personally identifiable information that you choose to include in such User Content. You understand and acknowledge that, even after removal, copies of User Content may remain viewable in cached and archived pages or if other users have copied or stored your User Content.
Your registration is handled through wedplan.com and subsequently, all of your information is stored and used through their technology.
Like most websites, Joy Publications uses "cookies" to help you personalize your online experience. A cookie is a tiny data file which resides on your computer and allows Joy Publications to recognize you as a user when you return to the Joy Publications website from the same computer and browser. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you, and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you.
You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of the Joy Publications Website or Services you visit.
Advertisements, promotions and offers from third-party advertisers may be provided to you while you are visiting the Joy Publications website. We may also use third-party widgets (i.e. Facebook plug-ins). These companies may employ cookies and action tags (also known as single pixel gifs or web beacons). Any information that these third parties collect via cookies and action tags is completely anonymous. Joy Publications does not have access to or control of the cookies or action tags that may be placed by the third-party. These widgets have no access to your contact information stored on Joy Publications unless you choose to share it with them.
Joy Publications follows generally accepted industry standards to protect the personally identifiable information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it. We use industry standard efforts to safeguard the confidentiality of your personal identifiable information, such as firewalls and Secure Socket Layers (SSL) where appropriate. We also protect the personally identifiable information you provide on computer servers in a controlled, secure environment, protected from unauthorized access, use or disclosure.
But no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure, however. Therefore, while we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security. If you have any questions about security on our Website, you can send us an email at [email protected].
Once you become a registered user of Joy Publications, you will receive an account, accessible by a password of your choosing. You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your password and account. Furthermore, you are entirely responsible for any and all activities that occur under your account. You agree to immediately notify Joy Publications of any unauthorized use of your account or any other breach of security known to you.
Though we make every effort to preserve your privacy we may need to disclose personal information when required by law wherein we have a good-faith belief that such action is necessary to comply with a current judicial proceeding, a court order or legal process served on our Web site.
