Our policies regarding the use of your individual identifying information is outlined below:

2. Choice/Consent

You always have the option to opt out of our e-mail and our mailing list. Access to certain Jameco Electronics' web pages requires a login and password.

3. Data Security

Jameco Electronics is committed to taking reasonable steps to protect the individual identifying information that you provide to us. When placing orders, communications between you and Jameco's site are secured using SSL, a de facto standard for Internet security. SSL is an open protocol for secure data communications across computer networks. Jameco uses SSL to secure its on-line catalog so we may provide an environment in which electronic commerce can be conducted and data protected. SSL is application protocol independent and provides encryption, which creates a secured channel to prevent others from tapping into the network; authentication, which uses certificates and digital signatures to verify the identity of parties in information exchanges and transactions; and message integrity, which ensures that messages cannot be altered en route.
