JAMA may contract with third-party vendors, suppliers, and agents (“service providers”) to provide certain services, including email delivery and web hosting, on our behalf.  JAMA may share your personal information and other information with its service providers to the extent necessary for them to perform these services.  Our service providers that receive personal information are expected to maintain privacy and security protections that are consistent with JAMA’s privacy policies.  We authorize these companies to use your information only for the purposes for which it was originally intended.  However, unless otherwise dictated by law or agreement, JAMA is not responsible for any improper use by such parties.

JAMA may also disclose your personal information, including across national borders:

  • to our members;
  • if JAMA determines in its good faith judgment that disclosure is necessary to protect the rights, interests, safety, or property of JAMA’s business, employees, customers, service providers, or others;
  • to comply with applicable law or in response to a subpoena, court order, law enforcement or government request, or other legal process;
  • in connection with litigation, arbitration, mediation, adjudication, government or internal investigations, or other legal or administrative proceedings;

  • for any other purpose disclosed by us when you provide the information; and/or
  • with your consent.

Transfer of Your Information to Other Countries

Personal information and other information covered by this Privacy Policy may be transferred to, and processed and stored in, the United States or any other country in which JAMA or its affiliates, subsidiaries, or service providers maintain facilities, even if the level of data privacy protection required in such country is less than that required by the European Union or under the U.S.-E.U. Safe Harbor.  By submitting your information to JAMA, you consent to such transfers and to the worldwide processing of your personal information and other information.
