“Personal Information” is information about you as an individual. Examples include your name,
mailing and e-mail addresses, age, birthday, telephone number, picture and voice recording.
Your personal preferences, such as your favourite colour or flavour of ice cream, could also
qualify as Personal Information if connected with other information that identifies you. This
why we collect it and what we use it for.
“Non-identifiable Information” is information that cannot be associated with, or traced back to, a
specific person. Non-identifiable information includes: anonymous aggregated information,
information about your visits to our Websites which is not linked to you, information about your
computer’s operating system and web browser software. Your computer and its operating
systems, browsers, and memory contain vast quantities of transaction data and records of your
use of it. This Personal Information could be gleaned from these systems by outsiders if you do
not take steps to protect your system. It is our policy not to associate this information with
customers, even though we verify some kinds of technical information to ensure that our
Websites are optimized to serve our customers.- 2 -

verify non-identifiable information about visitors to our Websites and measure visitor traffic
patterns. We do this to maintain the best possible Websites. A cookie is a small computer file.

creates a small computer file stored on your computer’s hard drive. We ensure that the minimum

in the cookie with Personal Information that would enable us to identify you individually. On
subsequent visits to the Website, our server communicates with your computer, reads the cookie,
recognizes and confirms that you are a returning visitor. Our server uses this information to
provide you with a “short cut” that facilitates the quickest, most efficient and best possible

1. Clubs or Memberships
Some of our sites may offer you the opportunity to become a member or belong to a
club, so that you can participate on a regular basis in games, bulletin boards, contests
and other activities offered on the site. We do collect Personal Information when you
join in accordance with the following principles:

Personal Information than is necessary for such activities.
When you enter a contest, you may be required to provide the following Personal
Information: your name, address or province of residence, e-mail address, telephone
number and, where an age eligibility requirement applies, your age range. This
Personal Information is collected solely for the purpose of identifying and
communicating with contest prizewinners. Personal Information from non-winners is
destroyed, in accordance with applicable legal requirements. When an affidavit of
eligibility and release is sent to the prizewinner’s parent or legal guardian, it must be
signed and returned before the prize can be awarded. If the release is not returned
within the specified time period, the winner forfeits the prize and an alternative
winner may be chosen.

dispose of information no longer needed. We screen and train our employees carefully to ensure
that they will always have the highest regard for you and your privacy, and we restrict access to
your Personal Information to only those with a need to know.
We make best efforts to keep our servers in a safe environment and protect our information
technology infrastructure from abuse. Security on the Internet is a continuously evolving
problem and work to keep up with the latest trends. If you receive any electronic communication
which purports to be from a member of the JPBG that you have any questions or concerns about,
please contact us. Spam, improper use, and pirating of domain names and email addresses is a
growing problem, so we appreciate hearing about incidents in order that we may investigate
them and provide you the best customer service.
