In this policy, the terms "we", "us", "our", and "ours" refer to JCAP Holdings, LLC ("JCAP") and its affiliates. Sections 4-7 apply to JCAP affiliates designated in Section 4. All other sections of this policy apply to JCAP and all affiliates.
JCAP respects individual privacy and values the confidence of its customers, employees, consumers, business partners, and others. Not only does JCAP strive to collect, use, and disclose Personal Information in a manner consistent with the laws of the countries in which it does business, but it also has a tradition of upholding the highest ethical standards in its business practices. We have therefore adopted a privacy and data protection policy that is applicable to information relating to our employees as well as to information relating to other individuals collected or processed in the general course of our business, including but not limited to Personal Information received from locations within the European Union.
This Policy applies to any Personal Information received by JCAP in any format, including electronic, paper or verbal.
Section 3: Definitions
For purposes of this Policy, the following definitions shall apply:
"EEA" means European Economic Area. Created in 1994, the EEA combines the countries of the European Union (EU) and member countries of EFTA (European Free Trade Association).
"Agent" means any third party that collects or uses Personal Information under the instructions of, and solely for, JCAP or to which JCAP discloses Personal Information for use on JCAP’s behalf.
"Consumer" means any natural person but excludes any individual acting in his or her capacity as an Employee.
"Employee" means any current, former or prospective Employee of JCAP or any of its European affiliates.
"Personal Information" means any information or set of information that identifies or could be used by or on behalf of JCAP to identify an individual. Personal Information does not include information that is encoded or anonymized, or publicly available information that has not been combined with non-public Personal Information.
The following company affiliates adhere to the Privacy Shield Principles and may collect the same types of EU data as JCAP:
JC International Acquisition, LLC
Majestic Capital Holdings, LLC
JCIA Holdings, LLC
FMT Services, LLC
JCIA Servicing Company, LLC
Jefferson Capital Systems, LLC
Prior to JCAP collecting Personal Information directly from individuals in the EEA, it will inform them about the purposes for which it collects and uses Personal Information about them, the types of non–Agent third parties to which JCAP discloses that information, the choices and means, if any, JCAP offers individuals for limiting the use and disclosure of Personal Information about them, and how to contact JCAP. Notice will be provided in clear and conspicuous language when individuals are first asked to provide Personal Information to JCAP, or as soon as practicable thereafter, and in any event before JCAP uses or discloses the information for a purpose other than that for which it was originally collected. Where JCAP receives Personal Information from its subsidiaries, affiliates or other entities in the EEA, it will use and disclose such information in accordance with the notices provided by such entities and the choices made by the individuals to whom such Personal Information relates.
JCAP will offer the opportunity to choose (opt-out) whether their Personal Information is to be used for a purpose other than the purpose for which it was originally collected or subsequently authorized by the individual. JCAP will provide reasonable mechanisms to exercise their choices. Individuals can opt-out by reaching us at the contact information below.
In cases of onward transfer to third parties of data of EU individuals received pursuant to the EU-US Privacy Shield, JCAP is potentially liable. JCAP will obtain assurances from its Agents that they will safeguard Personal Information consistently with this Policy. Examples of appropriate assurances that may be provided by Agents include: a contract obligating the Agent to provide at least the same level of protection as is required by the relevant Privacy Shield Principles, Privacy Shield certification by the Agent, or being subject to another European Commission adequacy finding. Where JCAP has knowledge that an Agent is using or disclosing Personal Information in a manner contrary to this Policy, JCAP will take reasonable steps to prevent or stop the use or disclosure.
Upon request, JCAP will grant reasonable access to Personal Information that it holds. In addition, JCAP will take reasonable steps to permit Consumers and Employees to correct, amend, or delete information that is demonstrated to be inaccurate or incomplete.
JCAP will take reasonable precautions to protect Personal Information in its possession from loss, misuse and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration and destruction. We restrict access to Personal Information to employees who need to know that information to provide services. We maintain physical, electronic and procedural safeguards that comply with applicable laws to guard Personal Information.
JCAP will use Personal Information only in ways that are compatible with the purposes for which it was collected or subsequently authorized by the individual. JCAP will take reasonable steps to ensure that Personal Information is relevant to its intended use, accurate, complete, and current.
JCAP is subject to the investigatory and enforcement powers of the Federal Trade Commission (FTC). Any Employee that JCAP determines is in violation of this policy may be subject to disciplinary action up to and including termination of employment.
