Privacy Statement


Joseph A is committed to protecting your privacy and to adhering to U.S. Federal and state privacy laws and industry guidelines in order to protect your personal information.  This Privacy Statement describes what information Joseph A collects on this web site, how it uses that information, when it discloses that information, and how it protects that information.

 Information Collection and Use

Whenever you shop with Joseph A, we obtain from you information to process and complete your transaction.  This will include your name, address, telephone number, eMail address, and credit card number.  We also retain details of your specific product purchases and transactions to enhance your shopping experience, send you marketing and promotional materials, and help us improve our online store and available product and services. To improve and update our web site, we also may collect statistical and other non-personal information about your navigation through the web site and the services provided, such as the web pages visited, the date and time of your visit, and the functions you use.  Joseph A uses this information to understand what areas of its web site are most popular and which areas may require improvement.

Online Account Registration

Registering a username and password with our web site will make your online shopping faster and easier.  We can store your shipping address and billing information so that you don’t have to enter them each time you shop.  You also can save your shopping basket, check your order status, and review your order history.  Your registered information will be securely stored with us, and you can add, delete, or change your registered information at any time using your password.

 Disclosure of Information

 We may disclose your information acquired through the web site to third parties, but only:

(a) To contractors and third-party service providers that Joseph A uses to support its business, such as a company that distributes our catalogs.  In the event a third-party receives your information, Joseph A will direct such third-party to use the information only to assist Joseph A to execute its business functions;

(b) To respond to law enforcement requests, where required by applicable laws, court order, or governmental regulations;

(c) In the event of a sale, merger, liquidation, dissolution, reorganization, assignment or other transfer of the Joseph A business, in which case we will require any such buyer to agree to treat you information consistent with Joseph A’s security practices and use it only for the purposes for which the information was acquired; or

(d) In situations involving threats to the physical safety of any person.

Joseph A does not otherwise distribute, sell, rent, or trade your information to third-parties.  Joseph A will have no liability for disclosure of your information because of errors in transmission or the unauthorized intervention of third-parties. 

Protecting Your Information

Protecting your personal information is very important to us.  Joseph A stores your personal information in a secure location, not accessible to the public.  We also restrict access to your personal information to only those employees who need that information to provide products or services to you.  We also maintain reasonable physical, electronic, technical, and procedural safeguards to protect your personal information, such as the use of firewalls, encryption for data transfers, and restricted access to data.  Joseph A periodically reevaluates, tests, and updates its security measures. 

During the shopping checkout process, we use Secure Socket Layering (“SSL”), industry-recognized encryption technology that ensures the safety and security of your online order.  When the letters “http” in the URL address change to “https,” the “s” indicates you are in a secure area employing SSL.

Making a credit card purchase is just as safe on our web site.  Our customer service associates are available Monday through Friday, 9:00 AM through 5:00 PM Eastern Standard Time and can be contacted via email at
