We care about the safety of children. We will not knowingly allow anyone under 13 to provide us any personally identifying information.

It is the policy of San Jamar to keep all past and present employee information private from disclosure to third parties. There are certain business related exceptions and they are:

- Inquiries from third parties with a signed authorization form the employee to release the information, except in situations where limited verbal verifications are acceptable (see below);
- Third parties with which San Jamar has contractual agreements to assist in administration of company sponsored benefits.
Prospective employers, state agencies, financial institutions, and residential property managers routinely contact San Jamar requesting information on a former or current employee’s work history and salary. All such requests of this type shall be referred to and completed on a confidential basis by the Human Resources Department or Payroll Department.
San Jamar is compliant with federal HIPPAA regulations and only utilizes information related to the company sponsored healthcare plan on a “need to know” basis for administration of the healthcare plan.
San Jamar will not collect customer Personal Information, unless the customer contacts San Jamar directly. In order to adequately address a customer’s concern, their Personal Information may be shared with an Agent. Failure to provide necessary information may prevent San Jamar from fully addressing any customer concerns.
If you are a participant in the online system, we ask for contact information, name, shipping address, phone number, and e-mail address. In the future, we may use this information to contact you regarding products or promotions, as well as other products and services, which may be of interest to you. At any time you may “opt out” of future contacts by un-subscribing from our database or contacting the Privacy Officer.
San Jamar insures that Personal Information is safeguarded against loss, access, use, modification, disclosure or other misuse. All reasonable steps are taken to prevent unauthorized use or disclosure of your Personal Information.
San Jamar will retain your Personal Information only for as long as necessary to fulfill the purpose(s) for which it was collected and to comply with applicable laws, and your consent to such purpose(s), remains valid after termination of our relationship with you.
We take all reasonable steps to insure that your Personal Information is accurate, up-date, complete, relevant and not misleading.
