PRINCIPLE 3 - ACCESS

We will provide you with the means to ensure that your personal information is correct and current. You may view your personal information registered with USA Jump Rope, and request changes as necessary.

PRINCIPLE 4 - SECURITY

When using our online ordering system to purchase products and/or new/renewal memberships, it is necessary for USA Jump Rope to collect credit card information.  This is done through the use of a security protocol known as an SSL certificate.  This protocol allows different applications to communicate across a network in a way designed to prevent eavesdropping, tampering, and message forgery.  Any credit card information collected is stored in a secured location to prevent unauthorized access by anyone other than USA Jump Rope personnel.  All records are retained and disposed of in accordance with local, state, and federal privacy laws.

USA Jump Rope will protect the security of your personal information and we honor your choices for its intended use.  We carefully protect your data from loss, misuse, unauthorized access or disclosure, alteration, or destruction.  Any use of our services is considered a personal choice and no warranty about the security of your data may be implied from this statement.
