We may use third-party web analytics services on our Services, such as those of Google Analytics.

The information collected by the technology will be disclosed to or collected directly by these service providers, who use the information to evaluate your use of the Services.

For more information on the privacy practices of Google, please visit the Google Privacy & Terms web page: www.google.com/policies/privacy.
We do not serve third party advertisements to you while using Jamboxx.com. However, we do work with website analytics and advertising partners, including Google, Doubleclick Campaign Manager, Adwords, and Facebook, to deliver Jamboxx advertisements on third-party publisher websites – these partners may set cookies on your computer’s web browser. These cookies allow our partners to recognize your computer so that the ad server can show you our advertisements elsewhere on the Internet, and so that our analytics software can measure your engagement and interactions while using our websites. In this way, ad servers may compile anonymous, de-identified information about where you, or others who are using your computer, saw our advertisements, whether or not you interacted with our advertisements, and actions performed on subsequent visits to our websites. This information allows an ad network to deliver targeted advertisements that they believe will be of most interest to you, and it allows Jamboxx to optimize the performance of our advertising campaigns and the usability of our website. In other words, we use analytics data in concert with data about our online ads that have been shown using the Google Display Network, DoubleClick for Advertisers, or other online advertising networks. By doing so, we can understand how anonymous users interacted with our website after seeing our ads.
IP ADDRESSES AND “COOKIE” INFORMATION
USE OF INFORMATION FROM THIRD PARTIES
Jamboxx may use consumer information obtained from third-party providers like Google Analytics for reasons such as better understanding our customers and identifying ways & means to better target our advertising to our customers. You have the right to opt-out of receiving marketing & advertising related-correspondence from us at any time.
Periodically, we work with third parties to help manage and optimize our marketing and communications efforts. We collect customer-provided information, IP addresses and cookie information. By providing such information to third parties, it enables us to learn things like how pages on our website are performing and which of our products are of the greatest interest to our customers. You can “opt-out” of our ability to analyze such data at any time by contacting us at [email protected].
We may share information such as your name, address, email address, as well as a record of any transactions you conduct on our website with third-party advertising service providers in order to deliver advertising & marketing communications more tailored to your interests.
In general, the third-party providers used by us will only collect, use and disclose your information to the extent necessary to allow them to perform the services they provide to us. However, certain third-party service providers, such as payment gateways and other payment transaction processors, have their own privacy policies in respect to the information we are required to provide to them for your purchase-related transactions.
For these providers, we recommend that you read their privacy policies so you can understand the manner in which your personal information will be handled by these providers. In particular, remember that certain providers may be located in or have facilities that are located in a different jurisdiction than either you or us. So if you elect to proceed with a transaction that involves the services of a third-party service provider, then your information may become subject to the laws of the jurisdiction(s) in which that service provider or its facilities are located.
When you click on links on our store, they may direct you away from our site. We are not responsible for the privacy practices of other sites and encourage you to read their privacy statements.

We may disclose your personal information if we are required by law to do so or if you violate our Terms of Service.
Our store is hosted on WooCommerce, Inc. They provide us with the online e-commerce platform that allows us to sell our products and services to you. Your data is stored through WooCommerce’s data storage, databases and the general WooCommerce application. They store your data on a secure server behind a firewall.
If you choose a direct payment gateway to complete your purchase, then WooCommerce stores your credit card data. It is encrypted through the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS). Your purchase transaction data is stored only as long as is necessary to complete your purchase transaction. After that is complete, your purchase transaction information is deleted.
All direct payment gateways adhere to the standards set by PCI-DSS as managed by the PCI Security Standards Council, which is a joint effort of brands like Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover. PCI-DSS requirements help ensure the secure handling of credit card information by our store and its service providers.

Jamboxx LLC. (“we” or “us”) is concerned about children’s privacy. The website(s) (“Sites”) that we operate provide information about our Jamboxx music instrument, which is designed for all ages including children ages 6 and up. While most of our visitors are age 18 or older, we anticipate that some children may visit our website(s).
The Sites are controlled and operated by us from the United States.
We support the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (“COPPA”) and other frameworks like the General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”). Our goal is to minimize the information gathered from and disseminated about Children while permitting them active participation in the trustworthy information, education and independent voice for which we are known.
A. How We Collect and Use Information from Children
Children can explore the Sites, and can view and print forum posts, comments, and other content without providing any personal information and as such no personal information from children are collected.
Account set-up and Maintenance. Children age 13 or younger should not register as a forum member of our Sites.
Use of anonymous information. If the information collected from a Child does not identify or allow contact with him or her or his or her device (including, for example, aggregated information), we may use and disclose it for any purpose, to the extent permitted by applicable law.
No advertisements! We do not display advertising based on information collected from Children.
Persistent Identifiers. When visitors interact with the Sites, certain technical information may automatically be collected, both to make our Sites more interesting and useful and for various internal purposes related to our business. Examples of information that is automatically collected include: the type of computer operating system, the device’s IP address or mobile device identifier, the web browser, the frequency with which the user visits various parts of our Sites, and information regarding the online or mobile service provider. None of this data is tied to personally identifiable information.
- Ensure that the Sites function properly;
- Enable us to conduct research and analysis to understand, address and improve the use and performance of the Sites; and
- Diagnose and respond to problems.
B. What Information About Children Is Shared?
We do not collect any Children’s personal information and therefore share no data.
C. How May Parents Raise Other Questions or Concerns?
If a parent has any questions or concerns about his or her Child’s use of the Sites, we encourage the parent to contact us at [email protected] or:
43 New Scotland Avenue, MC25
Albany, NY 12208
D. EU Privacy Matters
Who does this Section G apply to? It applies to Children based in Europe. All references to “Child” or “Children” in this Section G are references to such European Children only. References to such European Children’s “parents” should be understood in the same light.
Who is our EU representative? Our EU representative can be contacted at [email protected].
EU-specific rights. Under certain circumstances, Children may have certain rights – including those set out below:
Access. Request access to their Personal Data.
Correction. Request correction of inaccurate or incomplete Personal Data that we hold about them.
Erasure. Request erasure of their Personal Data.
Objection. Object to our reliance on our Legitimate Interests (see below) as the legal basis of processing of their Personal Data
Restriction. Request the restriction of processing of their Personal Data until we address their request establish its accuracy or our reasons for processing it.
Portability. Request the transfer of their Personal Data in a portable format.
Withdraw consent. Withdraw their consent to any Processing that relies on it as a legal basis (see below). Their parent’s have the same right to withdraw any parental consents that we have been given.
How to exercise these rights? These rights can be exercised by emailing [email protected]. Typically, there is no fee for this. However, we may charge a reasonable fee if the request is clearly unfounded, repetitive or excessive – or, in these circumstances, we may refuse to comply with the request. We may need to ask for information in relation to any request to help us confirm the identity of the person making it and to speed up our response.
The right to complain. We would love to be able to resolve all questions, requests and complaints about Personal Data directly. However, if a Child or their parent feels we have not been able to satisfactorily resolve an issue, they may contact their local data protection supervisory authority. For the contact information of the Data Protection Authorities for each European Union Member State, please click here.
Anonymised Data creation
We may create ‘Anonymous Data’ – this might include aggregated data such as statistical or demographic data. Anonymous Data may be created or derived from any of the Personal Data we collect, but once in anonymous / aggregated form it will not directly or indirectly reveal a Child’s identity (i.e., it’s no longer Personal Data).
We may use or disclose Anonymous Data for any purpose permitted by law, and do not require a legal basis to do so.
