II. Security

The Jungle Photos Website has security measures in place to protect against the loss, misuse, and alteration of the information under our control. Access to computer data and files at Jungle Photos may be secured by password coding to prevent unauthorized access.

At present we do not have secure areas on the website. All content is free and no confidential or sensitive information is required to access Jungle Photos. If or when secure areas are implemented Jungle Photos will utilize industry standard SSL (Secure Socket Layer) encryption when accepting confidential information. SSL encryption is a method by which information transmitted across the Internet is encoded to defeat theft by anyone who should intercept the data before it reaches its destination. Webpages where SSL encryption is activated are typically identified by a lock or key symbol displayed in your browser. NOTE: Items purchased through the Jungleshopping program are in association with amazon.com and are therefore subject to the security protocols of amazon.com. Donations made through PayPal or amazon.com are likewise subject to the security protocols of those websites.

User information is protected off-line. All user information is restricted to individuals involved in the necessary procedures to provide requested services, such as mailing or emailing publications, images or related information.

Jungle Photos security and privacy policies may be reviewed and enhanced at any time. Any changes to these policies will be posted immediately in this statement. Any security or privacy policy changes shall not retroactively effect any personally identifiable information held by Jungle Photos unless such a change would INCREASE privacy and security protections for the user.
