Collection of Information: Cookies

For each visitor to an Jones CPA Group website, Jones CPA Group's web server automatically recognizes and stores information, such as the visitor's IP address/domain name combination and any referring websites. We use this information to understand visitor traffic patterns through our websites for purposes such as enhancing their usability. Your computer provides this information automatically each time you log on, unless you've activated blocking technology available in some browsers.

When you visit Jones CPA Group's websites or advertisements appearing thereon, or use one or more of the Jones CPA Group website services, we may use an industry-wide technology called "cookies" which stores certain information on your computer and which will allow us to customize your experience to better match your interests and preferences, or to simply facilitate your signing in to use the services. Most browsers will allow you to erase cookies from your computer hard drive, block acceptance of cookies, or receive a warning before a cookie is stored. However, if you block or erase cookies, we may not be able to restore any preferences or customization settings you previously specified, and our ability to personalize your online experience would be limited. Please refer to your browser instructions or "help" screen to learn more about these functions.

Also, Jones CPA Group, or third parties on its behalf, may collect anonymous information from visits to our sites through the use of "Web Beacons."

Additionally, Jones CPA Group may ask you to provide "personal information," meaning individually identifiable information such as your e-mail address, name, mailing address, telephone number, social security number, credit card number, or persistent identifier (such as a customer number held in a cookie) which is associated with individually identifiable information, to enable you to fill out a registration, or to order products and services using these websites. Jones CPA Group may combine the information you provide on our websites with other information we may collect from you offline or from third parties so that we can more effectively tailor our website, services, and offerings to you. If you provide Jones CPA Group with personal information, you shall have the right, on reasonable prior notice, to inspect, change, amend, or delete such information. Instructions on how to update personal information will be given at the point of data collection.

Unless you instruct us otherwise, Jones CPA Group may contact you to provide information about products, services, promotions, contests, or other activities or offerings that may be of interest to you.

As such, we may disclose your personal information for the following reasons:

  • Where the transfer is necessary to fulfil your request and involves a third party organization with which Jones CPA Group has a relationship (see "Third Party Links" below); or
