The Site is operated by the Jacksonville Maritime Association/International Longshoremen’s Fund Office (the “Fund Office”) for and on behalf of the Joint Board of Trustees (the “Trustees”) representing the Jacksonville Maritime Association/International Longshoremen’s Association Locals 1408 and 1593 (“JMA/ILA”), who sponsor the Jacksonville Maritime Association/International Longshoremen’s Association Pension Plan, Welfare Plan and Royalty Plan (the “Plans”).

Types of Information Collected.

(a) Personally Identifiable Information. This is primarily an informational Site, and thus you may browse most of the Site without providing any information about yourself by which you might be identified. Information gathered from or about you as you use this Site by which you may be identified is referred to herein as “Personally Identifiable Information.” There may be instances where you may decide to provide to us Personally Identifiable Information. For example, if we require that you secure a user name and password in order to access certain portions of the Site, and you choose to access that portion of the Site, you will be asked to provide information by which you may be identified, such as your name, address, email address, contact information, and to select a user name and password. If the user name and password are to give you access to portions of the Site that are restricted to participants or beneficiaries of the Plans, for example, then we will ask you for information reasonably sufficient for us to confirm that you are indeed such a participant or beneficiary, for example (such as your name, address, telephone number and last four digits of your social security number). You may also provide us with Personally Identifiable Information, such as your email address, a telephone number and/or your contact information when you communicate with us through the email addresses provided on the Site for use in communicating with us. We expect that you may have questions about the Site and its operations, and we will answer such questions as soon as possible.

However, to discuss confidential and/or sensitive issues with us, such as the status of your particular Plans account or your options as a participant or beneficiary of the Plans, or other matters not pertinent to the Site or its operations, please contact the Fund Office in person, by U.S. mail or by calling (904) 354-7258, for assistance in identifying the appropriate contact person to address your concerns, as such communications with us are not intended to be handled through the Site and not intended to be covered by this Privacy Policy.

(b) Cookies. “Cookies” is a term used for technology that stores useful information about visitors or their computer when they visit a site. We may use cookies to capture and compile statistical information about the way in which the Site is used by Site users, but this information is not stored or captured in a way by which you may be identified. You may be able to set your browser to disable some or all cookies or to notify you when a cookie is set.

Use of Information Collected.

We will use and disclose your Personally Identifiable Information only as follows:

(a) To Comply with Your Requests. We may use and disclose to others your Personally Identifiable Information to the extent reasonably necessary to provide you with the information and services you request.

(ii) Similarly, if you contact us for help using the Site, we may use your Personally Identifiable Information to respond to you, or to have our Site service providers (those helping us operate the Site and/or provide customer service on the Site) contact you.
(iii) Also, from time to time, we may provide a mechanism through which you can request updates and information be sent to you about JMA-ILA benefits, issues, opportunities and developments (“Updates and Newsletters”) and a mechanism to thereafter decline receipt of such Updates and Newsletters. If you sign up for such Updates and Newsletters, we (or our service providers assisting us) will send you those Updates and Newsletters using the contact information you provided to us for that purpose, and if you thereafter decline to receive those Updates and Newsletter, we will, within a reasonable period of time after we receive your request, cease use of your information for such purpose.

(b) To Operate and Improve Our Site. We may use your information, including your Personally Identifiable Information, to help improve the operation of our Site, such as to diagnose problems with our server, to administer our Site, and to communicate with you with respect to your use of the Site, including to verify your identity when accessing the Site or in connection with a lost password or similar technical issue requiring that we endeavor to confirm that it is you contacting us and not someone else using or attempting to use or acquire your information.

(c) To Our Successors and Assigns. In the event ownership or control of JMA-ILA changes, or JMA-ILA mergers with another entity or entities, we may also share your information, including your Personally Identifiable Information, with and transfer it and our rights in it to any successor or assign of JMA-ILA, which resulting successor or assign would have the right to use and disclose your information as we did, and would be obligated to protect and not to use your information in the same manner as we were obligated, subject to applicable law.

(d) Aggregation of Information. We may aggregate your information with the information of others so that you cannot reasonably be identified and we may use and disclose such de-identified (statistical) information for any purpose.

In addition, we may use and disclose information that we have gathered from you or that you have provided to us: (i) if we believe that any law or regulation requires us to do so, (ii) to respond to a subpoena or governmental request; (iii) as we deem it advisable or necessary to protect our safety, rights or property, or that of our directors, officers, trustees, employees, agents, affiliates, other users of this Site, or others; (iv) to respond to a possible violation of this Privacy Policy, the Terms of Use, any law or regulation; and/or (v) to enforce this Privacy Policy and/or our Terms of Use.

Updates to Our Privacy Policy.

We reserve the right to change this Privacy Policy at any time in our discretion.
