Our vendors’ and partners’ collection and use of non-personal information
Jackson works with vendors and other partners to help deliver online and mobile advertisements for Jackson products and services that we think may be of interest to you using information that is not personally identifiable. Many of these advertisements are not targeted to you specifically, but rather are placed on third-party internet websites where we anticipate our target audience will visit frequently. We do not control and are not responsible for the privacy practices of third-party internet websites where our advertisements appear.
Some of our advertisements delivered for us by these vendors and other partners may be based on your online behaviors (e.g., on Jackson Sites and other third-party sites), your search activity, or your general geographic location (such as whether your Wi-Fi network indicates that you are in an airport). These ads may appear on our own sites or on third-party websites. You may also see advertisements for third parties’ products and services on other websites based on your visits to Jackson Sites and other sites.
We also engage vendors to deliver online advertisements to users whose online behaviors on sites other than our own sites indicate that they may be interested in our products, or to help us deliver advertisements to users based on their publicly available social networking information. Some of our vendors may use anonymous data, such as demographic data, received from third parties to assist in the delivery of our advertisements to you.
You may view a list of certain companies that collect or use information about your browsing activity to assess your ad interests, and they may or may not provide you with the opportunity to opt-out of their use of your browsing activity to serve you interest-based ads. Those companies are responsible for managing and honoring your opt-out choices, and Jackson is not responsible for their actions or policies.
Jackson recognizes that information security is a crucial topic. To protect data, we’ve built an industry-standard Information Security program with certified and experienced professionals who strive to protect the integrity of our systems and applications. Precautions have been implemented throughout our organization, including, where appropriate, password protection, multi-factor authentication, encryption, TLS, firewalls, and internal restrictions on who may access data to protect the information we collect from loss, misuse, and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, and destruction. Information you provide to us when filling out secure forms on our sites, as well as information we supply when you are visiting those areas, is protected while passing through the Internet using encryption technology called Transport Layer Security (TLS). Your browser will indicate when you are within a secure area of our sites by displaying a symbol, such as a locked padlock or an unbroken key. To learn more about how Jackson protects your personal information, please visit the Cyber security page.
