Web Site Security
JVC-Media Web Site is equipped with Secure Sockets Layer ("SSL") technology. SSL protocol was developed by Netscape Communications Corporation to enable encrypted, authenticated communications across the Internet. SSL uses public key encryption mechanisms, one of the strongest encryption methods available to protect data sent over the Internet. SSL provides three important services, all using public key techniques: Privacy, Authentication, and Message Integrity. Personal information sent is not discernible to anyone except the recipient.
Browsers that support the SSL encryption technology are called secure browsers. Online orders to JVC-Media must be placed from a secure browser. Most Netscape Navigator (version 1.2 and later) and Microsoft Internet Explorer browsers (version 3.0 and later) are secure. Your browser will automatically enter the secure mode when you make purchases.
If you do not have a secure browser and would like to place orders, please contact your local sales office for further information.
A "cookie" is a very tiny piece of text that we are asking permission to place on your computer's hard drive. If you agree, then your browser adds the text in a small file. Each cookie has a unique identifier and structure assigned by the sending Web site. Only the originating web site can access a cookie left behind in a prior session (when you return to that site). Your personal information will not become public information on the Internet because you visited our Web Site.
- Gather information concerning users' use of JVC-Media Web Site, allow users with more streamlined use of JVC-Media Web Site and improve the functionality of JVC-Media Web Site;
- Allow you to build an order over time, adding components throughout the day or over an extended period of time. (Uncommitted orders will remain available for 30 days. An order that has not been visited within that 30 day period will be removed);
- Allow you to easily return to the site to retrieve information on previous orders;
- Maintain a client/server connection or user "state" as you move between pages building an order; and
- Allow you to store your user ID's.
Cookies are assigned an expiration date and time. JVC-Media cookies, used for online order processing, remain on your hard drive for two months. However, no more than 300 cookies can be stored by your browser at any one time and no more than 20 can be stored from any one site. If the cookie jar is filled, your browser will automatically begin deleting the oldest cookies.
Cookies cannot enable the web server to read from your hard drive, get your e-mail address against your will, destroy files on your computer, create executable programs, or obtain sensitive information about you. Cookies from one site cannot be read by another site; your information cannot be passed from site to site.
